The flexible Addiction Treatment Programme at The Manor Clinic focuses on addressing the physical symptoms of the addiction via a comprehensive medically assisted detox, before examining underlying causes for the addictive behaviours and enabling lifelong recovery. Our programme is based on the well-known 12-Step treatment philosophy, which was first pioneered by the organisation Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).

What addictions are treated at The Priory Southampton?

We are able to treat the following addictions and addictive behaviours at The Manor Clinic in Southampton:

Alcohol addiction

Alcohol addiction, also commonly known as alcoholism or alcohol use disorder, is typified by an individual repeatedly consuming alcohol in an excessive manner, until their body eventually becomes dependent on this in order to function effectively on a day-to-day basis. Without professional help, alcohol addiction can cause a range of long-term psychological and physical problems, and can even result in death.

Drug addiction

Drug addiction is a serious condition, characterised by frequently taking or administering drugs. Individuals can become addicted to illegal drugs such as heroin or cocaine, or legal prescription drugs. Illegal drug addiction is usually the result of peer pressure or curiosity, whereas prescription drugs are usually taken for a legitimate medical reason, before an individual begins to abuse the drug or use it recreationally. Without help, illegal and legal drug use can soon become a serious problem.

Some of the most common drug addictions include:

  • Heroin addiction – heroin is a form of opiate drug. This dangerous substance is a derivative of the painkiller morphine and is most commonly injected, although it is also possible for heroin to be smoked or snorted. Due to its strong anaesthetic properties, heroin is extremely addictive. This causes tolerance to build quickly which means that individuals need to take more and more of the drug in order to experience the same initial effects.
  • Cocaine addiction – cocaine is a powerful stimulant drug which is most commonly snorted in white powder form, although it can also be injected. Cocaine causes users to experience intense euphoria, which often causes them to become addicted quickly and develop a high tolerance to the drug.
  • Methamphetamine addiction – methamphetamine, part of the amphetamine family, is a dangerous stimulant drug that often looks like small crystals. Commonly referred to as ‘crystal meth’, this substance is extremely potent and addictive, and causes tolerance to build quickly. Methamphetamine is most commonly smoked, and results in alertness, confidence, extreme energy and euphoria.
  • Cannabis addiction – cannabis, widely known as ‘weed’ or ‘marijuana’, is taken from the cannabis plant and is one of the most widely abused substances in the UK. This drug is most commonly smoked although it is becoming increasingly common for cannabis to be baked or cooked in food. Cannabis use results in feelings of relaxation and tranquillity which can be very addictive for some people.
  • Prescription drug addiction – legal prescription drugs are often prescribed by medical professionals following an operation or injury, in order to provide a patient with short-term pain relief. However, these drugs are known to cause feelings of tranquillity, pleasure and euphoria, which can cause individuals to develop an addiction and tolerance to them.

Gambling addiction treatment in Southampton

A gambling addiction is characterised by individuals engaging in repeated, risky gambling behaviours, despite the negative outcomes that this causes. Gambling addictions often develop due to the rush of excitement and adrenaline that people experience when they win a lot of money, which therefore induces a natural high. However, as this behaviour becomes more and more frequent, gambling can have a destructive effect on relationships and work performance, and can result in serious financial problems.

Addiction therapy at The Manor Clinic

We use a wide range of established addiction treatment methods at The Manor Clinic, which have demonstrated worldwide success in enabling recovery and rehabilitation from these serious conditions. Examples of the types of therapy that we use include:

1:1 therapy

1:1 therapy takes place on an individual basis, between yourself and the most appropriate addictions specialist for your requirements. 1:1 therapy sessions enable you to discuss your unique concerns and challenges in detail with one of our experts, allowing these to be addressed in a comprehensive manner. The format of these sessions is flexible and guided by the unique nature of your addiction, thus enabling the best possible progress and outcomes.

Group therapy

As its name suggest, group therapy is a method of therapy that takes place as part of a broader group of addictions patients, and are led by one or two of our specialists. At The Manor Clinic, we understand that the thought of group therapy can be quite daunting for many people. However, there is a wealth of evidence that suggests that group therapy is very effective in treating a number of mental health conditions, particularly addictions. Group therapy empowers individuals to share their experiences, offer mutual understanding and feedback, and learn from each other in an extremely supportive and compassionate environment.

Family therapy

Family therapy centres on the patient and their family or loved ones. The purpose of family therapy is to enable a two-way dialogue and understanding of the patient’s addiction, and the impact that this is having on each family member and their relationships with others.

Holistic therapies

At The Manor Clinic, we recognise that healing a patient’s mind and body is extremely important as part of their addiction treatment journey. For this reason, The Manor Clinic offers a variety of holistic therapies that complement other therapeutic methods and allow healing on a physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual level. We are pleased to offer the following holistic therapies at The Manor Clinic:

  • Emotional freedom technique (EFT)

  • Mood management

  • Yoga

  • Meditation

  • Mindfulness

  • Acupuncture

What happens during The Manor Clinic’s Addiction Treatment Programme?

Individuals can attend The Manor Clinic’s Addiction Treatment Programme for 7, 14 or 28 days, depending on which treatment plan and programme works best for them. Our robust programme is guided by best practice and the very latest thinking in the treatment of addictions. Our highly qualified multidisciplinary team guarantee a truly bespoke journey for each and every one of our patients and adhere to national addictions treatment guidelines, in order to produce the best possible outcomes and long-lasting rehabilitation and recovery.

Free addictions assessment

At The Manor Clinic, we recognise that it can be difficult to take the first step towards recovery from an addiction. Our free, no obligation addiction assessment allows you to discuss your unique concerns with one of our specialists, in a confidential and non-judgemental environment. This initial assessment will begin to help you to identify the underlying causes of your addiction, and is the first step towards developing a personalised addiction treatment journey.

Medically assisted detoxification

Detoxification, or ‘detox’, is often a necessary first step towards recovery from alcohol or drug addiction. Detox refers to the process by which all traces of harmful, addictive substances are removed from your body in a safe and medically assisted environment. A controlled detox programme also helps you to manage the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that are experienced when you stop consuming alcohol or drugs. At The Manor Clinic, we are able to provide a safe and secure alcohol and drug detox programme, providing 24-hour medical supervision and a bespoke detox plan for each and every one of our patients.

Residential treatment

Depending on the length of the Addiction Treatment Programme that you have opted for, the next step following detox may be to progress to intensive residential treatment. Our beautiful Georgian mansion offers a comfortable, friendly and highly therapeutic environment in which to recover from an addiction, whilst our expert team are on-hand 24 hours a day to deliver a comprehensive programme of evidence-based therapies, ensuring that these are best suited to the unique requirements of each individual.

Medication management

For addictions patients who require medication in order to manage the symptoms of an existing mental health condition, our expert team are able to provide a bespoke medication management service. Our dedicated psychiatrists are on-hand to assess the medical needs of each and every one of our patients and to prescribe medication if this is required. Our on-call clinicians and 24-hour nursing staff are then able to monitor the progress and effectiveness of any of these additional medications.

Free aftercare for life

At The Manor Clinic, we are dedicated to ensuring that our patients are provided with the support that they need when they leave treatment, enabling life-long recovery and wellbeing. That’s why we offer free aftercare for life, for those who have completed the 28-day Addiction Treatment Programme with us. This consists of weekly aftercare group sessions, as well as ongoing support via telephone and email, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In addition to formal aftercare sessions and support, we also host an annual summer barbeque and Christmas party for patients who have completed The Manor Clinic’s 28-day programme. This enables patients to keep in touch, share experiences, and support each other throughout their ongoing recovery and abstinence journey.
