World class addiction treatment at Priory
At Priory, we recognise that substance addictions, including alcohol and drug addictions, as well as broader behavioural addictions such as gambling, internet, love and sex and shopping addictions, can have a profoundly negative impact on all areas of your life, including your ability to function on a daily basis, your interpersonal relationships, performance at work, and your physical and psychological health.
However, it is important to recognise that addictions are treatable, and the most important first step is to seek help. At Priory, our specialist addiction treatment is led by our expert teams of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, nurses and other highly trained mental health and addiction professionals, and all treatment is individually tailored to your personal needs and requirements, enabling us to provide the highest standards of care to you. We ensure that you are placed at the heart of your addiction treatment journey so that you benefit from a truly bespoke package of care, in order to produce the best possible outcomes for you as an individual, and allow you to overcome your substance misuse or addictive behaviours.
Addiction treatment programmes at Priory
Our Addiction Treatment Programmes typically take place as part of a 28-day residential programme, although the length of treatment can be flexible according to your unique needs, requirements and commitments. As part of this, you will have the opportunity to tackle any physical symptoms that are associated with your addiction, during detox, before undergoing intensive group and individual therapy in order to address the underlying causes and triggers for your addictive behaviours.
Addiction treatment at Priory is underpinned by the renowned 12-Step model, which is an abstinence-based approach that was first popularised by the organisation Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The 12-Step model provides a set of guiding principles for the addiction treatment journey, and focuses on your motivation to change your unhealthy thought patterns and addictive behaviours, whilst also drawing upon elements of spirituality within the treatment and recovery process.

In addition to our comprehensive inpatient offering, addiction treatment at Priory can also take the form of day care or outpatient therapy. These options can be used as a step-down in intensity for individuals who have completed a rigorous residential programme, or can also be used as an entry-point to therapy, depending on the nature of your addiction and the intensity of the support that you require.

These rigorous programmes offer leading treatment for a wide range of addictions, as well as a dedicated aftercare offering, ensuring that each and every one of our patients are equipped to make a strong and sustainable recovery long after treatment. We are also able to offer an intensive, medically assisted withdrawal detoxification process, for substance addictions, if this is required.
