What To Expect
It’s a daunting prospect to go and stay in a new and unfamiliar place, particularly during recovery from addiction, when an individual is feeling particularly physically and mentally vulnerable. We try to make the process as easy as possible, and reassure everyone who begins treatment with us, by putting them in a peaceful and calm environment.
We make every effort to ease the transition when you first arrive for treatment. You’ll get an in-depth tour of the facility, we’ll introduce you to those who’ll be overseeing your treatment, and we’ll give you some time to make yourself at home.
There will be a little paperwork during the admission process. Any confidentiality issues will be addressed at the same time, and we’ll ensure that only those you’re comfortable with know about your treatment.
The detox process
Detoxing from heavy drug use is an uncomfortable and unpleasant process. We try to make this as comfortable as possible during your stay, and supervise the withdrawal process throughout to ensure medical safety. Sudden detox is very dangerous in a lot of situations, as it can cause seizures, convulsions and even death.
Put all images of a cold and sterile hospital building out of your mind – our treatment home is exactly that; a home. It’s warm and inviting with plenty of natural light and a comfortable interior. We’ve worked very hard to make it welcoming.
The stress and chaos of your previous addiction can be left behind in a safe environment where your wellness is paramount. We treat everyone who stays with us with complete dignity and respect, and encourage teamwork and relationship building during your stay.
Therapies and Treatments
No one’s recovery experience is the same, so we tailor your treatment program around your specific needs. All of our treatments are proven and based on firm evidence; they’ve proven very effective for recovered addicts throughout the country.
Your individual treatment plan will evolve as your recovery develops, and we’re always keen to encourage our patients to try new methods when they feel ready. Sometimes it’s important to keep recovery varied, and some prefer to maintain a strict routine. We’ll accommodate you whatever your preferences.
Your stay with us includes:
Individuals are encouraged to reflect on their sessions and identify their own personal emotional triggers.
Peer feedback and discussion in an open and honest environment.
The aim is to equip everyone with the right information to keep moving forward and stay healthy.
