"The care provided doesn’t end after the 28 days and returning to Priory Hospital Altrincham always feels like going home. I continue to work through a plan of recovery, the foundation of which was created during my time at Priory.”
- Former patient at Priory Hospital Altrincham
The Addiction Treatment Programme at Priory Hospital Altrincham is a comprehensive, 28-day residential programme. As part of this, you will have the opportunity to tackle any physical symptoms that are associated with your addiction through our detox process, before undergoing intensive group and individual therapy in order to address the underlying causes and triggers for your addictive behaviours.
12-Step rehab programme in Cheshire
We provide an evidence-based programme that is tailored to individual needs, all structured within NICE guidelines. Addiction treatment at Altrincham is underpinned by the renowned and widely used 12-Step model, which is an abstinence-based approach that was first pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The 12-Step technique focuses on your motivation to change your unhealthy thought patterns and addictive behaviours, and also incorporates elements of spirituality within the treatment and recovery process.
We recognise that substance and behavioural addictions can have a destructive impact on all areas of your life, including your day-to-day behaviour, relationships with loved ones, performance at work, as well as your physical and psychological wellbeing. However, the good news is that addictions are treatable, and expert help, support and therapy is available.
At Altrincham, we are dedicated to placing our patients at the centre of their addiction treatment journey, ensuring that you receive a completely tailored treatment plan and are involved in all decisions made about your care, in order to produce the best possible outcomes for you as an individual.
Free aftercare for 12 months
At Priory Hospital Altrincham, we understand that during the first 12 months following treatment, it is likely that you will require additional support as you progress in your early stages of recovery. That’s why we offer free aftercare for 12 months, once you have completed our full 28-day Addiction Treatment Programme. Our aftercare programme consists of twice-weekly support groups, continuous networking assistance, talks and advice for patients, as well as weekly family support groups. In addition, you will finish the Addiction Treatment Programme with a tailored Continuing Care Plan and we are dedicated to supporting you in your ongoing transition from hospital back to your day-to-day life.
What addictions are treated at Priory Hospital Altrincham?
At Altrincham, we are able to provide high quality, bespoke treatment for a wide range of substance and behavioural addictions, including:
Alcohol addiction rehab
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 rehab
Drug addiction is a serious condition, characterised by frequently taking or administering drugs. Individuals can become addicted to illegal drugs such as 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 drug rehab, illegal and legal drug use can soon become a serious problem, and can even be fatal.
Cocaine addiction rehab
Cocaine addiction is one of the most common forms of drug addiction that we treat at Altrincham. 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.
Other behavioural addictions that we are able to treat at Altrincham include:
- Gambling addiction
- Love and sex addiction
- Shopping addiction
- Internet addiction
- Food addiction
We are also able to treat poly (multiple) addictions at Priory Hospital Altrincham.
In addition, we understand that addictive behaviours are often triggered by underlying mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress and eating disorders. As such, we are also able to treat multiple presenting issues at Altrincham, addressing the root cause of your addiction, as well as tackling the addiction itself.
Crisis care at Priory
Priory’s customer service team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure that those in crisis can be signposted to the best possible support, as quickly as possible. The specialist teams at our residential facilities can help to stabilise those in need of immediate assistance, including providing access to medically assisted detoxification for drug and alcohol addictions, where required.
