Alcohol Rehab in Somerset
This Clinic provides a comprehensive, specialist and individualised addiction programme for the assessment and treatment of those suffering from addiction problems, both substance and behavioural.
Our service is for people whose lives are being damaged by the compulsive use of alcohol, illegal or prescribed drugs, food, gambling, shopping, sex or any other substance or behaviour which provides immediate mood change or escape or avoidance from reality.
What makes us special?
Our addiction programmes are Consultant-led and provide intensive treatment, education and support designed to help individuals face the reality of their dependency and promote the restoration of physical and emotional health. The programmes aim to minimise the psychological and physical distress of withdrawal by establishing abstinence in a safe and supportive environment.
We focus on the underlying issues that manifest in someone’s addictive use, offering psycho-education around all aspects of addiction and relapse prevention. We specialise in treating dual diagnosis and addiction.
The programmes are based on the 12-step abstinence model and provide treatment for a wide range of substance and behavioural dependencies. Programmes are also available to treat the more complex and increasingly common conditions such as poly-addictions or dual diagnosis.
Treatment for most programmes is normally provided on an inpatient basis, typically lasting between four and six weeks.
However, the programme can vary in duration and content, depending on the package of care required and more flexible programme structures involving daycare or out-patient treatment may be available to suit individuals’ personal circumstances and lifestyle commitments.
The treatment programme consists of a range of activities such as:
- Individual and group therapy/counselling
- Educational lectures, workshops and seminars
- Family participation programme
- Relapse Prevention
- Holistic activities, including Yoga/Mindfulness
- Attendance at 12 step fellowship meetings
Facilities and accommodation
The environment we create for patients is as important as the treatment itself. To this end, each patient has the privacy of his or her own individual comfortable bedroom, with television, telephone and en-suite facilities.
Communal areas are pleasant and homely. Facilities including a tennis court, recreation room and well-equipped art room are available for patients to use.
Patients are encouraged to have their meals in the dining room which offers an excellent choice of hot and cold dishes to suit different tastes and nutritional needs. Special dietary requirements can also be catered for.
