Transportation to a residential rehab facility
There are a number of options available to you if you require transport to or from a rehab facility.
Transfers are arranged for you
- The whole journey of recovery, including getting to your residential rehab hospital should be as smooth and as comfortable as possible.
- If you need to get from an airport or train station to your chosen rehab facility, then you will need a taxi.
- Many of the UK’s top rehab facilities are able to arrange this for you so that you can arrive safely and securely.
Accompanied sober transport
For individuals or families that do not want to travel to a rehab facility on their own, you can opt for a loved one or professional chaperone to accompany you on your travel.
Sober transport is a paid-for service that allows addicts to travel accompanied to help them resist the temptations of drinking.
The chaperone is professionally trained and will help you throughout your journey, providing support, advice, or medical attention if needed.
An individual who is on their way to rehab may also feel safer when accompanied, as they can guarantee that they will reach the rehab facility safely.

Sober transport is available from your home, another rehab facility or hospital.
You will be required to pay for this yourself as it is not included in most rehab treatment packages.
Why can’t I recover at home?
Many people who struggle with addiction are reluctant to go further afield to rehab or think they will be able to save the cost of treatment and recover at home.
Recovering on your own is almost impossible.
You need help and support around you to make a full and lasting recovery. How to convince your loved one to go to rehab.
Residential rehab treatment is the most effective way of taking the time to focus on yourself and your own recovery, without temptations, toxic relationships or cravings.
At a rehab facility that is residential, you will be able to learn the best methods of dealing with your cravings, as well as being fully medically monitored during your detoxification process, which is very dangerous to attempt at home, or alone.
