28 day addiction treatment programme in Bristol
Addiction treatment at Priory Hospital Bristol takes place as part of our intensive 28-day residential treatment programme.

Ultimately, our aim is to empower you to become physically stable, address the underlying causes and triggers for your addiction, improve your self-esteem and take steps towards a full and sustainable recovery.
Our comprehensive, abstinence-based Addiction Treatment Programme is underpinned by the renowned 12-Step addiction treatment model.

The 12-Step philosophy is used worldwide in the treatment of all forms of addiction, with proven results and success.

What addictions are treated at Priory Hospital Bristol?
At Bristol, we are able to provide expert treatment for a wide range of substance and behavioural addictions.
Alcohol addiction rehab in Bristol
Alcohol addiction, which is also referred to as ‘alcoholism’ or ‘alcohol use disorder’, develops as a result of consuming alcohol in an excessive manner, to the extent that you become both physically and psychologically dependent on alcohol in order to function effectively on a daily basis. Without comprehensive alcohol addiction treatment, alcoholism can result in a whole host of devastating physical and psychological problems, and can even be fatal.
Drug addiction rehab in Bristol
Drug addiction is characterised by repeatedly administering or taking drugs, whether these are legal prescription drugs, or illegal substances such as cocaine, heroin or ecstasy. Regardless of the type of drug addiction that you have developed, continued use of these substances can soon become a serious problem and can lead to a range of severe long-term consequences.
Other behavioural addictions that we are able to treat at Bristol include:
In addition, we understand that addictions can often go hand in hand with other mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, stress and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Our multidisciplinary team are also able to deliver treatment and counselling for dual diagnoses and multiple presenting issues, in order to tackle the underlying causes of your addictive behaviours, as well as the addiction itself.
