Why watch this film?

Treating the whole person

The reasons behind someone’s addiction will be different for each person. Our programme deals with the patterns of destructive behaviour, as well as providing supportive psychological therapies to address any underlying emotional issues. At Priory, we are able to focus and treat both physical health and mental wellbeing which enables our patients to be more likely to achieve long-term abstinence. 

Peer support

The advantage of being on a programme with other people means our patients can make friends with each other (often for life) as they benefit from supporting each other through recovery. Priory also runs a ‘peer support’ programme which involves former patients coming back to support current patients with their recovery which is a highly valuable addition to our programme of care as patients see first-hand how the treatment programme has helped others. Our service users laugh together too, as our consultant Dr Campbell points out “recovery is not all doom and gloom” it’s about us supporting someone taking that first step on the road to getting their life back.
