The admissions process begins as soon as possible after you contact us. It begins with a with a pre-assessment by our team so we know the best way to start your drug or alcohol addiction treatment safely. After those checks and a bit of paperwork we'll arrange you a private room at our centre and begin your recovery journey.

You'll meet with our nurse and doctor for an assessment as well as one of our counsellors and you'll undergo a full medical before starting your drug or alcohol withdrawal treatment and detox. Once you have completed your initial detox you'll move to the recovery stage. This includes group therapy, individual counselling, the 12-step programme which is an integral part of our process and extra classes such as yoga.
Alongside your treatment, we also offer family support. We know that support from your family is a major part of your recovery so we work with you and your loved ones to help you explain your addiction to them and to rebuild your relationships with them in a new way.

Aftercare can include appointments with medical professionals or counsellors and assistance with finding new accommodation if needed. Before you leave us we'll help you draw up a plan to move on with your life including tools for dealing with relapses.
