Addiction Advocates’ state-of-the-art drug and alcohol rehab in Berwick Upon Tweed may well be just the thing that you need.


One very common misconception around addiction recovery is that a successful recovery simply consists of stopping consuming drugs or alcohol. However, addiction recovery is a much more complex problem that requires a series of treatments, both physical and psychological.

It is only natural that you may feel some trepidation around the idea of attending a residential rehab, but, in the end, it is likely a necessary step for you to take if you are looking to make a serious and long-term recovery from drug addiction and/or alcohol addiction and overcome your addiction for good.

Hopefully, any questions or worries you have around attending rehab will be covered below, but if you still have any other questions you can call us at any time on 0800 012 6088 for a free, no-obligation chat about recovery.

Here at Addiction Advocates, we want to make sure that the recovery process is as easy and stress-free as possible, as we want anyone struggling with addiction to feel as comfortable as possible in getting the help that they are in need of.


Why Are Our Drug And Alcohol Treatment Facilities Beneficial

While it is possible to get treatment for addiction through the NHS, due to underfunding from the government you will likely face long waiting periods before you are able to get treatment.

However, unlike NHS rehabilitation treatment programs, Addiction Advocates’ private residential rehab treatment can be set in motion almost instantly.

While there is an element of costs when it comes to the option of private residential rehab treatment, the type of care that is provided will be much more advantageous to your recovery.

With our treatment option, for example, our patients will benefit from 24/7 care, a personalised treatment plan set up by one of our highly-trained addiction specialists, a variety of psychological and physical therapy options as well as the chance to recover in a peaceful and positive atmosphere.


How Does Our Treatment Program Work?

When you finally make the all-important step of actually reaching out to us and setting in motion the process of attending one of our drug and alcohol rehab centres, our staff will administer a brief pre-admission screening. This will help us to ascertain the current state of your addiction, your medical history, your budget, as well as your accessibility requirements.

Once we have this information, this will help us to work out your best possible recovery plan.

We are aware that everyone is fighting their own demons when it comes to the struggle of addiction, so we want to make sure that your recovery plan has your best interests at heart and gets right to the core of what lead to the development of your substance abuse disorder or alcohol abuse disorder.

From then on it is simply a case of making your way to our drug and alcohol treatment facility. By removing yourself from your daily life for a while you will also be able to remove yourself from any triggers or stressors that exist in your daily life which may be contributing to your addiction.

While it is only natural that leaving your friends and loved ones behind can be a very nerve-wracking prospect, it is truly in your very best interest for this short period of time.

It is very common that drug and alcohol addictions can be stemming from problems which are present at home or work. With this in mind, not removing yourself from your daily routine as you work through a treatment program may well mean that you are at a higher risk of relapsing.


What Specific Treatments May We Administer?

Most treatment programs will consist of a series of treatment following the structure of detoxification, rehabilitation treatment, and then aftercare support.

When you first arrive at one of our facilities, it is most likely that you will start your recovery with a course of treatment at our detox clinic.

While at the detox clinic, our specialist staff will make sure that you can get through drug withdrawal or alcohol withdrawal safely. Withdrawal can cause a person to present with very serious and even life-threatening side-effects, which his what can make simply going cold turkey an incredibly dangerous option.

Our medically-assisted detox program will see you have the negative substances in your system lowers careful over time, and provide you with the best foundation for the rest of your recovery treatments.

Once you have passed through detoxification, you will them start the rest of your treatments.  This stage of treatment will typically involve a blend of physiological and physical treatments in order to tackle all aspects of your addiction.

Due to the fact that we offer personalised treatment plans, it is impossible to say what treatments you will experience until you reach out to us; however, some of the most common treatments that are implemented at our facilities include the likes of: cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), one-to-one and group therapies, art therapy, dual-diagnosis treatment, stress management classes, meditation classes, and much more.

Finally, we will also provide you with 12-months of complimentary aftercare support. This will help to make sure that your first year of recovery after having left our facility is spent clean and sober should you ever find yourself struggling when back in your day-to-day life.

We know that the shift back to your daily life can be difficult, but we are confident that with the release prevention training and our complimentary aftercare scheme, you will be perfectly primed to spend the rest of your days free from addiction’s clutches.
