Alcohol Treatment Package
If you've made the decision to stop drinking, then our treatment programme is ready to help.
There's always a reason why people use alcohol - to numb, to escape, to forget. Our intensive treatment works to uncover the causes of drinking, and develop new ways of thinking. With time and hard work, the ongoing triggers for drinking can be minimised, and long-term sobriety achieved.
Our Alcohol Treatment Package is a complete service which offers:
Treatment on a leading alcohol programme
Over twenty-eight focused days, you'll take part in group and individual sessions, including specific exercises tailored to your particular circumstances. In the early part of your journey, you'll complete a Life Story, which systematically examines everything that has taken you to where you are now. Other exercises, including therapeutic collages, and the AA Step One, build on this, step by step.
Detox and medication
If required, medically-assisted detoxification will be provided, allowing alcohol to leave your system safely and comfortably. High-intensity vitamin supplementation is often also provided, as are any other medications required for your overall health.
Attendance at local recovery meetings
In the evenings, attendance is arranged at local AA meetings, where you'll be able to form links and build a long-term support network.
Weekly family support sessions
Families and loved-ones can often feel excluded from the process of recovery, so our programme offers weekly family sessions, enabling them to be part of the long-term solution to help keep you well.
At the end of twenty-eight days, our support continues, with weekly aftercare meetings provided for a full year.
Daycare and secondary treatment
Further daycare sessions can be arranged, to enable a smoother step-down of care, once you're back at home. If required, we have links with excellent secondary-care facilities, allowing you to continue your recovery for several more months in long-term specialist facilities.
At the beginning of your treatment, you'll have a medical check-up, including a thorough blood screen. These results will be discussed with you, and lifestyle recommendations made, in order to maximise your long-term health. In addition, the services of our house doctor will be at your disposal throughout your stay.
Appointments throughout the week with Dr Drever, to monitor progress and implement treatment changes as necessary.
Lifestyle and professional services
In addition, you'll have access to the following services:
- Yoga sessions
- 24-hour nursing and medical support
- All meals and private en-suite accommodation
