Our Goal Is to Provide You With the Right Support to Prepare You for a Life of Abstinence

At CATCH Recovery we offer professional outpatient treatment for behavioural, alcohol and drug addiction, as well as other related psychological conditions. We are a private facility located in South Kensington, Central London, servicing all boroughs of London including Wandsworth. 

As part of an active network of top rehab centres within the Castle Health Group, CATCH Recovery focuses 40+ years of experience in addressing the problem of addiction with high efficiency. Other respected members of the Castle Health group are Castle Craig, Scotland, and Smarmore Castle, Ireland.

We support and evaluate the needs of recovery for every patient, from the time of assessment through a strong and encompassing programme of detox, therapy and continuing aftercare based on the proven 12 Step philosophy.

What We Treat

CATCH Recovery’s team of professionals are proactively involved throughout the treatment programme – having a high success rate in treating drug addiction, alcohol addiction, behavioural addictions and dual diagnosis.

If addiction is accompanied by an underlying mental health disorder, for instance, depression, anxiety, or PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) it is referred to as a dual diagnosis.

Finding a Medical Detox Near Wandsworth

Because of the wide range of physical symptoms caused by addiction, cravings and withdrawal, medical detox is often required before the extended treatment can begin. As such, the free services provided in Wandsworth do not benefit from large enough funds to support the level of care otherwise provided by private, residential rehab. An independent alternative to NHS funding and the long-waiting lists.

For the patients that require detox, CATCH Recovery can offer guidance on finding a detox programme, or refer you to one of our partner clinics such as Castle Craig, Scotland, and Smarmore Castle, Ireland. These residential rehabs have the appropriate staff and facilities for helping patients manage the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

All patients will have a medical consultation aimed at assessing the stage and severity of your addiction will take place upon arrival by all patients that choose one of our clinics. This provides us with a more in-depth understanding of their condition which will help attune the recovery plan to each patient individually.

Choosing Inpatient or Outpatient Rehab

Is inpatient or outpatient rehab an objective choice? Based on the client’s medical history, if long-term treatment is recommended, then carefully constructed inpatient care plans are offered at our rehabs in Scotland and Ireland, both of which are fully residential.

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment has the highest recovery rates that private care can facilitate, offering the best quality of professional care.

It refers to residential rehab where people have constant access to regular consultations that assess the progress of their recovery. It offers a tailored, rigorous and full-time treatment for alcohol and drug addiction.

At Castle Craig clinic the minimum stay is 4 weeks, during which time we organise regular therapy sessions and activities that promote recovery both in groups and individual.

A balanced and healthy routine of timely meals and exercises is required in this programme to maximise visceral efficiency in the fight against various withdrawal symptoms. Yet the key to a successful and rapid recovery in residential rehab is medical detox, supervised by on-site doctors, nurses and consultant psychiatrists, our team, cares for our patients 24/7 for a more comfortable recovery.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient care is recommended for patients with lower levels of addiction and patients who have already been cared for in residential treatment.

A team of experienced and certified therapists continually support our patients at CATCH Recovery outpatient clinic where a treatment programme is provided, suited for people that have difficulties committing to residential care – such as patients who stay at home, or patients who live in sober care.

The clinic facilitates regular therapy sessions as many times a week as needed for each client enrolled in our outpatient programme. But even though it is helpful, outpatient care is less suited for people who have suffered from addiction over an extended period of time. Nevertheless, depending on the specific needs of each client, in outpatient care, people have the option to continue to work and live at home.

Medical Detox

Private residential rehab offers on-site supervision with a medical staff that is present 24/7. They ensure safety and manage detoxification by adjusting the right dose of treatment based on each patient’s needs and comfort zone. At Castle Craig in Scotland, we offer all the benefits of such residential care.

One particularly helpful aspect of being far from the big city of London is the change in scenery. Therapeutic activities towards a healthy mindset take better roots in tranquil places where a transformational shift can take root.


Around Castle Craig, there are woodlands and beautiful landscapes with hills that set a calm and relaxing atmosphere. On the 51-acre estate near Edinburgh, where the clinic is located, patients can make the most of the activities the estate has to offer such as interacting with horses, alpacas, Hebridean sheep, and exploring gardens and natural surroundings.


Our professional staff of licensed and experienced therapists are very invested in their work, with a passion for healthy practices derived not only from their choice of work but from experiencing recovery as well. As a multidisciplinary team, they work together to gain a clear context of each patient’s case and customize their treatment properly.

How Long Does Drug and Alcohol Treatment Last?

The duration of the treatment depends on the severity of both addiction and possible underlying conditions. These can vary from unrelated medical conditions to addiction-related mental imbalances or disorders. All factors are carefully taken into consideration and if the need for medical detox is adamant, patients will benefit from intensive care for five to seven days depending on their particular situation. After the detox treatment, a minimum of 28 days of rehab activities and therapy will continue towards a lasting, steady recovery.

The standard residential rehab stay is recommended to be from 4 to 6 weeks for long-term results. However, In the research phase, our consultants at CATCH Recovery assess all medical information and construct a programme length in resonance with the patient’s needs.

Looking Beyond a Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Wandsworth

A strong reason why people are interested in going to rehab far from the noise of the city is being away from their settled triggers. Changing the usual environment can seem to feel disheartening at first, as the exposure to triggers carries an illusion of stability. Nevertheless, distancing oneself from access to unwanted activities like the consumption of drugs and alcohol is essential.

Patients from Wandsworth always have the choice of our residential rehabs Castle Craig in Scotland or Smarmore Castle in Ireland, where they are free to commit to achieving long-term sobriety.

When enrolled in our complex programme that tackles addiction, patients benefit from an all-encompassing physical and emotional support consisting of therapy, exercise, healthy meals, psychoeducational talks, and other kinds of activities that help them settle into a fine routine.
