Drug Addiction

Drug use, originally as harmless fun, or legitimately for health reasons, can end with serious consequences physically and psychologically. Drug abuse is a disease that can be life threatening and could destroy your life and the life of those you care about.

You can recover and we can help you take that vital step to regain a life free from drug addiction. Our specialist drug addiction service provides treatment for drug misuse and addiction to substances including cannabis, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, crystal meth and amphetamines. It is a progressive disease, so do seek treatment.

Our treatment approach for drug addiction

Our approach to treating drug addiction combines individualised treatment programmes with therapies that are based on current clinical evidence. Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) and Twelve Step Facilitation (TSF) we consider biological, psychological and social factors in our drug addiction treatment programmes. If detoxification from a chemical or substance is required we have experts in this field to carry out specialist detoxification as the first stage of treatment. Our programmes aim to achieve abstinence from your ‘drug of choice’.
