Addiction treatment programme - 12 step model
The service specialises in addiction treatment and rehabilitation for substance and behavioural dependency, such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, relationships and shopping. The service is a residential programme normally 28 days in length although this can be tailored to suit your needs. The programme follows the principles of the 12 step model and includes detoxification where necessary and is supervised by a specialist consultant and ward doctor. The team consists of qualified specialists some who are in recovery and their unique insight and approach will ensure that your stay is as beneficial and as comfortable as possible whilst giving you the tools to use once you discharge.

The rehabilitation treatment programme includes:

What we treat - acute mental health
Our team has the expertise and experience to treat all major acute mental health conditions, including stress, depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive states and mood disorders. We also have consultant psychiatrists who specialise in treating child and adolescent mental health problems and old age psychiatry.
The length and nature of the treatment will depend on the care plan devised by your specialist consultant and or therapist. This may involve a short inpatient stay involving group and one to one therapy (as prescribed by your consultant) followed by day therapy or it may be that you don’t require an inpatient stay and would benefit with an hour long, one to one session on a weekly basis with a qualified therapist. The hospital has a wide range of specialists on hand including CBT, person centred and art therapists as well as consultants who specialise in all major mental health illnesses.
In addition sometimes individuals face difficulties in life that can cause distress. Often, as a way of coping, there can be an engagement in unhelpful behaviours such as the over use of alcohol or other substances. This in itself can cause difficulties for the individual, their family and friendships.
If controlling drinking or the self medication of tablets has become problematic in life, and the thought of cutting it out completely seems challenging; then drinking or taking substances in moderation and reducing the risk of harm may be a more realistic goal. Our harm reduction treatment has helped many people to improve the quality of their lives and their general health.
