Seo for rehab centres, the most important marketing strategy you will ever use!

For years, treatment centres have been trying to find the perfect solution to attract their local clientele. Hiring a professional SEO company is the most cost-effective way to get the best return on your investment. Now, Rehab SEO is offering guaranteed results.

SEO is about ranking keywords in Google & Bing for keywords associated with your services, ensuring local people searching for drug & alcohol rehab, gambling addiction treatments and your other services near your clinic. When this is done correctly, the clients are given a map with 3 options. These options are the centre’s Google My Business listing.


The truth of it is, and let’s face it, COVID changed a lot in the addiction space. Not only from how substance abuse centres manage their patients, but how a patient looks for the prefect care facility.

Now, more than ever, potential patients are looking to stay in their local area and to get help with their addiction. Although most inpatient centres should market nationally, local rehab centres, especially those that offer both in and outpatient services, as well as other face to face services should invest heavily in their local marketing to ensure they are getting found online.


Ranking locally for your rehab facility provides you with leverage above the larger lead generation and directory sites. In order to rank in the map, you must have a physical location. The national brands don’t have locations all over the country, therefore you can out rank the huge firms for local patients, as well as having your services ranking organically in the search results…..monopolising the results.

Local SEO differs from national drug rehab SEO by focusing ONLY on local (within 30 km) searches.

Our process is complex but very effective.

  • Update on-page and off-page factors which contribute to local rankings
  • Build monthly blogs to increase content

  • Backlink to the website to show authority on the topic of addiction treatment
