A Guide To Ketamine Rehab Treatment Programmes

If you’re going through the ordeal of a Ketamine addiction, you shouldn’t despair, as there are various treatment options that can help you achieve full recovery. At Primrose Lodge, we offer people-focused treatment programmes for Ketamine addiction and dependence. Our facility is CQC registered, meaning we only carry out treatment services that are up to the Care Quality Commission standard.

We deliver various methods of treatment that will be streamlined to your particular needs, regardless of the level of addiction. We provide 24/7 care and support, en-suite rooms, laundry service and all-inclusive meals and snacks. Our facility sports comfortable private bedrooms, dedicated therapy rooms, as well as an onsite gym.


Being a hallucinogenic drug that interferes with brain chemistry, Ketamine has a marked psychological impact when abused to the point of addiction. You could be treated for any psychological problem that may have been caused by your use of Ketamine or those that might have been present prior to you using the drug.

At Primrose Lodge, our rehab programme includes daily group therapies and regular one-to-one sessions with experienced psychologists. These sessions will work to help you regain mental balance, enhance your social and communication skills, as well as teach you new ways to manage relapse triggers and maintain your long-term recovery.

Medical Detoxification

We have a Ketamine medical detox team that will work to keep you stabilised if your addiction to Ketamine is particularly severe. Using Ketamine over a long period can lead to tolerance and dependence, which will result in withdrawal symptoms flaring up whenever you attempt to quit or drastically reduce the dosage. Complications can arise during withdrawal, but with a medical detox, you can safely negotiate this phase.

This will be achieved via medication and therapies to alleviate certain symptoms, as well as 24/7 care and support to ensure the detox process runs smoothly. Whatever the case, be assured that you will undergo detox in the most comfortable way possible.

Detox Timeline

Everyone experiences detox differently, so there is no specific timeline that you must adhere to. Your progress and duration of detox will turn out as your personal condition dictates. The detoxification process for Ketamine is normally psychological in nature, whereby you’ll mostly experience withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and depression. Other symptoms like hallucinations and delusions may also surface.

You’ll likely begin to experience withdrawal symptoms within the first 24 hours after your last intake. Withdrawal symptoms will likely peak during days two to four, but our doctors will help alleviate these.

Depending on your body’s rate of metabolism and how much of the drug you’ve consumed, the Ketamine remnants in your system will be fully eliminated within a week. However, our medical detox team will still continue to monitor you closely, until you’re free from acute withdrawal symptoms.


Your personalised detox process will be followed by an individualised rehabilitation programme, during which you’ll undergo different forms of therapies in order to help you regain mental balance. Being addicted to ketamine means you’re going through a psychological illness because the drug is known to cause changes in the brain. If these changes are not reversed, they’re likely to cause you to relapse, even after you’ve successfully gone through detox.

We have a 28-day rehab programme at Primrose Lodge that’s designed to help you heal psychologically, physically and spiritually. We go the extra mile because we’re dedicated to making sure you achieve a full and lasting recovery. There will be a daily group and individual counselling sessions, where your psychological issues will be treated and you’ll be coached to make lifestyle changes that will aid your recovery in the long run.

Rehab Programme

Our rehab programme involves innovative behavioural and holistic therapies that will be streamlined to your personal condition. However, treatment won’t be restricted to just psychological therapies; you’ll also undergo holistic physical and spiritual therapies that will work to heal your mind as well. Therapies that will be applied via our rehab programme include:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
  • Meditation classes
  • Fitness programme
  • 12-step therapy
  • Music and art therapy

We also carry out a family support programme, where members of your family (who may have been going through mental trauma as a result of your addiction) will be treated.

Treatment for 16 to 18 Year Olds

If you have a teenager who has an addiction to Ketamine, you can get them to undergo treatment and break free from their dependence. Teens can easily become addicted to Ketamine, as the drug is often present at parties, raves and nightclubs that young people frequent. The results of Ketamine on a teenager can be devastating, because they might not be fully aware of the true dangers of this drug.

This is why we provide a structured treatment programme, developed especially for teens of 16-18 years old. Your teen can get help at our sister rehab centre, located in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

One Year’s Free Aftercare

Your recovery doesn’t end with treatment; going through detox and rehab will set you up for a substance-free life by flushing out any drug remnants from your system and teaching you relapse prevention skills. After treatment is over, you’ll need to continue maintaining your recovery for the rest of your life. To give you a head-start, we provide a free one-year aftercare programme, where you’ll continue to receive ongoing support through weekly group therapy sessions, individual therapy, and regular check-ups. This programme will see you re-adjust into your home environment, without any issues. Our commitment to ensuring you remain abstinent will be further exhibited through check-ups over the phone from time-to-time.
