Drugs Addictions we Treat in our Clinics

Here at our drug rehab clinic we treat many types of drug addictions including:

The most common form of drug addiction, but our rehab clinics do see people needing treatment for a lot of other drugs. These can often be severely debilitating and impede a normal way of life.

Each drug requires specific medications and therapies to be undertakes as we move through the drug detox and rehabilitation stages. Rest assured whatever your addiction, our trained professionals have the resources and experience to help you through these stages.


A Tailored Approach to Drug Rehab

Drug addiction is treatable and there are a number of different treatment options but your journey to recovery starts when you make the decision to enter a residential drug rehab clinic or treatment programme.

We can offer you a fully personalised rehabilitation plan. Once you arrive at one of our rehab clinics, a consultant psychiatrist carries out a full physical and psychological examination.

During this examination, you will need to explain to the psychiatrist the nature of your along with the severity and history of your addiction to drugs. The psychiatrist will also need to be informed of any additional substance misuse.

When you enter our drug rehab programme, you will be assessed by a team of medical professionals including a doctor, psychiatrist and psychologist as well as therapists, counsellors and other addiction specialists, all of whom are dedicated to helping you beat your addiction.

Personalised Treatment

Once you have been assessed, the rehab team will decide on the type of treatment that you require and draw up a comprehensive personalised treatment plan designed to help you make a full recovery. Your treatment plan will take into account the types of drugs you are addicted to, the length and severity of your addiction, your medical and mental health history, your social situation and your family background.

Our drug rehab centres use a holistic approach and treatment involves group therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), medically assisted detox, family therapy and skills development programmes. You will have the opportunity to explore and discuss the underlying causes of your drug addiction in a safe environment and you will be able to learn from the experiences of other drug users in the rehab programme. Every day is carefully structured, and all your time is accounted for.

During drug rehab, you will experience withdrawal symptoms as your body adjusts to cope without drugs. Depending on the severity of your addiction you may have to undergo medically assisted detox where you will be given substitute drugs, under medical supervision, to help you cope with the withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal from drugs like opioids, benzodiazepine and heroin can be fatal and detoxing on your own is extremely dangerous.

A Medicated Detox Regime

The majority of rehabilitation programmes for drug addictions require you to undertake a medically assisted drug detoxification. This is required in order to flush all harmful toxins from your system.

All our clinics are able to offer a full medically assisted detox programme with specific medications that are designed to ease withdrawal symptoms experienced during drug detox.

During detox, you receive 24/7 support. Rehab Clinics Group employs an expert team of medical/therapeutic professionals, complemented by our experienced team of support staff. Call us on 03301 596 494 if you have any further questions about detoxification.


Drug Rehab Therapy

Upon successful completion of your medically assisted detoxification from drugs, you will move onto intensive therapy sessions that will help gain better control of the psychological side of your addiction.

Substance abuse can be a complex problem as the diagnosis of how it developed could be down to a number of different factors such as environment and genetics.

Our team of therapists and psychologists will carry out one-to-one counselling and CBT therapy to help identify the root cause of your problem to determine how you can most effectively control your addictive behaviours and maintain abstinence from drugs upon successful treatment at one of our clinics.

To add to the intensive therapy you undergo with our therapists and psychologists you will also partake in regular support group sessions, these sessions are very helpful as you will be around other individuals who are also undertaking private rehab.

This will give you an insight into what others are feeling in their own personal journeys whilst also sharing your own struggles and achievements which can be a great source of comfort and motivation for anyone undertaking a drug rehab programme.
