We provide an evidence-based programme that is tailored to individual needs, all structured within NICE guidelines. Priory Hospital Woodbourne’s 28-day, residential Addiction Treatment Programme for alcohol, drug and behavioural addictions has been specifically designed to:
Address any physical symptoms that are associated with your substance addiction, via a medically assisted withdrawal detoxification process. This is the safest and most effective way to detox
Stabilise your mood
Improve your physical and psychological health
Help you to develop an understanding of the triggers for your addiction
Learn to manage your cravings and urges
Acquire lifelong coping strategies, enabling discharge and long-term recovery
The Addiction Treatment Programme at Woodbourne is based on the renowned 12-Step addiction treatment model. The 12-Step philosophy is an abstinence based programme, originally pioneered by the organisation Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The programme focuses on combining an individual’s spirituality with their motivation to recover, and is used worldwide to treat a range of substance and behavioural addictions.
“When I first came to Woodbourne I had absolutely no idea what to expect, I just hoped that I could get better. The whole experience has built me back up to who I used to be before I fell into this illness. I’ve got a really positive outlook on life and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”
- Former patient at Priory Hospital Woodbourne

What addictions are treated at Priory Hospital Woodbourne?
At Woodbourne, we are able to provide bespoke treatment and rehab for a range of substance and behavioural addictions, including:
Alcohol addiction rehab
Alcohol addiction, commonly referred to as ‘alcoholism’ or ‘alcohol use disorder’, develops as a result of excessive alcohol consumption, to the extent that you become physically and psychologically dependent on alcohol in order to function effectively on a daily basis. Without comprehensive alcohol addiction treatment, alcoholism can cause a range of devastating physical and psychological problems, and can even result in death.
Drug addiction rehab
Drug addiction is characterised by repeatedly administering or taking drugs, whether these are illegal substances such as cocaine, heroin or ecstasy, or legal prescription drugs. People usually develop an illegal drug addiction as a result of peer pressure or curiosity, whereas a prescription drug addiction often develops after consuming a certain drug for a legitimate medical reason. Regardless of the type of drug addiction that you have developed, continued use of these substances can become a serious problem and can lead to a range of serious long-term consequences.
The behavioural addictions that we are able to treat at Woodbourne include:
At Priory Hospital Woodbourne, we recognise that it is not uncommon for addictions to co-occur alongside other mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, stress and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). As such, our expert multidisciplinary addiction treatment team are also able to provide comprehensive support for other mental health conditions that may be exacerbating your destructive addictive behaviours.
What happens during addiction treatment at Woodbourne?
Our rigorous Addiction Treatment Programme has been developed by our highly skilled team of psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health nurses, therapists, and other addiction specialists, all of whom are highly experienced in supporting patients from many walks of life, and have an extensive clinical knowledge base within the field of addiction treatment. The treatment that we provide adheres to robust National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines and is guided by the latest research within the area of addiction rehab.
Seven-day, medically assisted withdrawal detox at Woodbourne
Detoxification, or ‘detox’, is the process by which these addictive substances are systematically removed from your body in a medically assisted setting, which helps to manage the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that can occur when you stop consuming alcohol or drugs. At Woodbourne, we are able to provide a safe alcohol and drug detox programme, based on a bespoke detox plan, which provides full medical supervision during this process. You can read more about our detoxification programme on our drug detoxification and alcohol detoxification pages.
Residential addiction treatment
Once all traces of harmful substances have been removed from your body as part of the detox process, you will be prepared to commence with comprehensive residential (inpatient) treatment for your addiction. Our expert team deliver a rigorous programme of evidence-based therapies, ensuring that these are tailored to the unique needs of each and every one of our patients, thus ensuring the best possible outcomes.
Inpatient treatment provides you with a structured environment, round-the-clock support, and also enables you to spend some time away from your usual living situation in order to remove any temptations or negative influences that may be fuelling your addiction. Inpatient treatment aims to equip you with the tools and coping mechanisms to improve your lifestyle, and take steps towards a positive and healthy future.
At Woodbourne, we understand that the thought of attending a hospital to undergo residential treatment can be overwhelming, and this form of treatment can have far-reaching consequences on both a personal and a professional level. However, you can be assured that Woodbourne’s Addiction Treatment programme has been designed to provide you with a truly life-changing experience, and delivers the expert care and attention that you need to take steps towards a full and sustainable recovery.
