About Serena House

Serena House is a luxury detox clinic in central London, providing the highest standards of care and comfort.

Our integrated bio-psycho-social programme has been designed and is led by the UK's most renowned addiction specialists. 

Our doctors first identify and diagnose the precipitating factors of your physical condition and your addiction. After your unique needs have been identified, your detox programme is custom-built, and tailored to your individual needs. 

London's most advanced medical detox centre

At Serena House we have world-class medical expertise all under one roof. Unlike most detox units, the clinic offers the benefit of an on-site diagnostic pathology laboratory and a state of the art imaging suite. Those with addictions often sustain a range of potentially serious side-effects because of substance misuse. This may include:

  • A loss in bone density
  • Liver damage
  • Kidney damage
  • Lipid disorders

Biochemical imbalances and addiction

Biochemical imbalances can cause and exacerbate addictive behaviours. At Serena House our biochemists can identify these – along with any organ damage that may have been caused by addiction to drugs and alcohol.

Biochemical imblances may include:

  • Micronutrient deficiencies
  • Thyroid problems
  • Histamine levels
  • Heavy metals
  • Amino acid imbalance
  • Hormonal issues

Once the root causes of any physical problems are known, a treatment plan can be devised, allowing the client to reach optimal health and vitality, ready for rehabilitation both mentally and physically.

Our experts will work to minimise the chances of relapse by identifying the underlying factors, and working with clients to formulate a long-term plan back to sobriety and wellness.

The Serena method

Clients will enjoy nutritionist-led, dietary care. Detox dining will help nourish the body back to good health, addiction specialists provide emotional support during their stay.

The client returns to the world with revitalised health, a new outlook and a set of mental tools designed to help them cope.

Detox at Serena House may be a potentially life-saving intervention for many patients.

Our experts have excellent rates of success at helping those suffering from addictions avoiding relapse and going on to lead healthy and happy lives.
