Our heroin detox centre in Runcorn, Cheshire is an elite clinically-led medical detox unit with outstanding post-detox therapeutic care. We recently scored 100% in the annual Care Quality Commission report making us the leading heroin detox unit in the UK.
This endorsement by the CQC is a testament to the work of the facility’s team who strive for – not only scientific led approaches – but also holistic therapies proven to spiritually rehabilitate clients. Our success is not built on detox, any facility in the country can provide that… we scored 100% because we deliver lifelong healing for the addict and their family members.
We don’t simply “let you go” once you have completed your rehab stay, we support and provide guidance for the rest of your life through an award-winning aftercare lifestyle programme called UKAT Alumni.

A medical heroin detox facility is a treatment centre that is staffed with doctors and nurses specially trained to help patients cope with the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that occur early heroin abstinence. Without medical care, these withdrawal symptoms can be unpleasant, dangerous and even life-threatening.
People enter a medical detox facility so that they can withdraw from heroin safely and in relative comfort. Around-the-clock nursing care ensures safety and certain medications can reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms, as well as decrease the dangers of this initial period.
We look at your overall health during our detox programme. We provide a heroin substitute to significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms, sleeping aids to help encourage and regulate healthy sleeping patterns, and relaxants to help with anxiety and mood swings. Intensive therapy now starts to have a dramatic effect as you sleep well, eat well and overall adapt to life post-heroin
Going “Cold Turkey” from heroin is incredibly dangerous and should never be encouraged. Not only is it life-threatening but it can psychologically scar you for years to come.
We treat your body, mind and soul during our intensive 28-day treatment plan. We guarantee at the end of your stay with us you will have a new outlook on yourself and your addiction allowing you to let go of the past and look forward to living life on life’s terms moving forward. The below is a sample of our rehabilitation programme. View the timetable in full here
We believe that the support from family and loved ones is crucial for maintaining long-term heroin recovery. Addicts who are treated at Oasis Runcorn respond well to family and friends being involved in their post detox recovery as isolation and loneliness is unlearned.
Being in a close and supportive family recovery network is crucial in breaking the vicious cycle which led to repeated heroin use and addiction in the first place. Therefore, we offer the chance for close loved ones to attend weekly therapy sessions at our very own clinic.
We understand that leaving rehab and having to face the reality of day-to-day life can be an extremely daunting thought. While you may be determined to continue living a clean and sober life, external triggers and temptations exist and dealing with these alone can leave you feeling isolated. To support you during this vital time, we have created a two-tier approach to long-term sobriety.
Short-term: we provide one year’s worth of free aftercare support sessions every week in the rehab you attended (or nearest clinic). Here you will engage with a group based therapeutic approach, with loved ones in attendance (if you so wish) but with the opportunity to speak with a counsellor one-to-one.
Long-term: we have built the UK’s first recovery network for all those who have attended a UKAT treatment facility. This lifelong recovery network is called Alumni – a gateway to lifelong sober companionship. Events include Christmas parties, dinners, adventure days out and, of course, summer BBQs.
This is the future of permanent recovery, and we are proud to be the first rehab family in the UK to offer it. Many people fear that putting down the drugs means ending their social life. At UKAT we say it’s only just begun! Please call to hear more about rehab, recovery and lifelong happiness.
