A specialist addiction treatment and rehabilitation centre in Chelmsford
Set within a striking listed building, in beautiful landscaped grounds on the outskirts of Chelmsford, Priory Hospital Chelmsford is a high quality addiction rehab centre. We are dedicated to providing bespoke addiction treatment and rehabilitation, allowing our patients to achieve lifelong recovery with the best possible outcomes.
We are still able to offer expert inpatient addiction treatment during this time and many of our addiction services, including our free addiction assessment, are now taking place online or over the phone. For more information on Priory’s approach to addiction treatment during the current COVID-19 outbreak, please access our dedicated page.
Our highly qualified addiction treatment team at Chelmsford have a wealth of expertise in treating a broad range of addictions such as alcohol and drug addictions, including addiction to new psychoactive and illicit substances (legal highs) as well as a series of behavioural addictions including gambling, love and sex, shopping, porn, exercise and work addictions.
We are also able to offer a comprehensive, medically assisted withdrawal detoxification process if this is required (which is the safest and most effective way to detox), as well as a highly specialist ‘digital detox’ programme in order to deal with dysfunctional internet, gaming and social media behaviours.
Addiction rehab at Priory Hospital Chelmsford takes place as part of a comprehensive 28-day programme, which allows you to tackle any physical symptoms or problems that have been caused by your alcohol or drug addiction, through our detox process, as well as empowering you to address the underlying triggers for your addictive behaviours as part of an intensive therapy regime. We provide an evidence-based programme that is tailored to individual needs, all structured within NICE guidelines. Our Addiction Rehab Programme is based on the well-known 12-Step treatment model which focuses on your motivation to change your addictive behaviours and negative thoughts patterns, whilst also drawing upon elements of spirituality within the treatment journey. The 12-Step approach was first introduced by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and is used worldwide in the treatment of addictions, with proven results and success.
All forms of addiction, whether you are struggling with a substance or a behavioural addiction, can have a detrimental impact on all areas of your life and can also result in a range of devastating long-term effects on your general health and wellbeing. However, it is important to recognise that addictions are treatable, and specialist support is available. At Chelmsford, we ensure that you are placed at the heart of your addiction rehab and recovery, are involved in all decisions regarding your care, and benefit from a truly personalised care package. This bespoke approach means that you will receive treatment that is tailored to your unique needs and achieve the most positive results for you as an individual.
Those on the Addiction Treatment Programme at Priory Hospital Chelmsford also have access to Art Therapy for two hours each week, to help with their recovery. For more information, click here.
