If you leave your addiction untreated, it will only worsen, potentially resulting in life-changing damage, physically, mentally, and emotionally.

At our drug and alcohol rehab in Southsea, we have a fantastic team of recovery workers who can help you to break that connection with substance abuse.

We achieve this by delivering a well-balanced, bespoke treatment programme to address the underlying reasons which caused your addiction in the first place.

Some people may attempt to recover from a drug addiction or alcohol addiction on their own, however, without the expert knowledge and guidance of rehabilitation specialists, you’re highly unlikely to succeed in your long-term recovery.

If you were to stop consuming drugs or alcohol abruptly, you’re putting yourself at serious risk; it’s very dangerous to go ‘cold turkey’. In order for a detoxification to be successful, you must reduce your consumption of the substance gradually.

Our team will supervise the entire process, ensuring you’re safe and as comfortable as possible through the detoxification.

By doing it this way, you’re much more likely to achieve an effective recovery whilst remaining safe at a much lower risk of harm.


What happens at our Rehabilitation Centre?

We work hard to create a calm and welcoming atmosphere at our drug and alcohol rehab in Southsea. We understand how nerve-wracking it can be to admit that you need support, our team are kind, compassionate, and very discrete with each client they speak to.

Put simply, we do not judge. Our goal is to help you in any way that we possibly can and turn your life around so that you have a happy, healthy future to look forward to.

Once you’ve contacted us either over the phone, text, or by email, we will arrange a pre-screening assessment to discuss your physical and psychological well-being.

Now is the time to ask any questions you might have surrounding our drug and alcohol rehab treatments. It’s also an opportunity for us to get to know you and understand your condition more so we’re able to design an effective treatment programme for you.

As all of our treatment programmes are personalised to suit each individuals’ needs, we’ll only select therapies which we believe will benefit you most to help you achieve your long-term recovery.

Typically, we welcome clients into our private drug and alcohol rehab within 48 hours after your initial contact with our admissions team.

This quick turnaround time is very important to your overall recovery as the more time you have to overthink this decision, the more likely you are to become nervous and want to drop out; this is why we minimise this time as much as possible.

This is a big disadvantage with free local health services like the NHS, as they’re unable to offer quick admission onto their drug and alcohol rehab treatment programmes.

This is simply because they’re so overstretched and underfunded, they just don’t have the resources to provide bespoke programmes or offer effective admission times.

You will be welcomed into our rehab in Southsea with open arms as a member of our recovery team will show you around, ensuring you’re familiarised with your surroundings before beginning your treatments.

All of our clients benefit from their own private room, as well as all of their housekeeping and laundry needs taken care of.

This helps you to focus on one thing only with no distractions – your long-term recovery from addiction.


What is Drug and Alcohol Detoxification?

Once you’re settled in, you’ll likely begin your stay with a drug or alcohol detoxification. This can be quite an uncomfortable process; however, we wouldn’t recommend it if we weren’t so confident of its effectiveness.

During your detox, we will gradually reduce your consumption of drugs or alcohol under the supervision of our medical team.

This is the safest and most effective way to achieve a successful detoxification and remove the harmful toxins from your body, preparing you for your subsequent therapies.

A drug or alcohol detoxification can be uncomfortable as a result of withdrawal symptoms which are very common. These can range from mild sickness or headaches to the more severe symptoms of insomnia, seizures, and delirium tremens (the DT’s).

This is why it’s critical that you undergo a detoxification within the safe setting of a rehabilitation centre as opposed to at home on your own without any essential medical support.


Which Addiction Therapies do we deliver?

In addition to drug and alcohol detoxification, we also deliver psychological therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), motivational therapy, relapse prevention, counselling, and stress management.

To ensure a holistic approach to your drug and alcohol rehab treatments, we combine a detox and psychological therapies with therapies which focus on improving your well-being.

These could include art therapy, fitness therapy, low level laser therapy, relaxation and sleep management, mindfulness, yoga, and music therapy.

Whilst these may seem like unusual techniques, they’re highly regarded as effective therapies to treat addiction and should not be overlooked.

After completing your drug and alcohol rehab treatments at our residential rehab, we will continue to offer our support through our aftercare programme. This is completely free for the first 12 months after leaving our rehab in Southsea and is just as important as your residential programme.

Most people find the first year after completing their rehabilitation to be the most challenging as they attempt to adjust to their new behaviours; this is the time when most relapses occur.

For this reason, we provide dedicated helplines, ongoing therapy sessions such as relapse prevention and counselling, and liaise with local support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous to provide additional guidance.
