Rehab treatment in Essex
The drug and alcohol rehab in Essex is focussed on a holistic approach to treatment. A wide range of addictions can be remedied here including alcohol, drugs (legal and illegal). This means that your addiction treatment will be about much more than just the physical symptoms, that is only the first step. Rebuilding the body, mind and spirit is at the heart of all of the treatments available at this centre.
The first step is a full medical detox prescribed and supervised by an addiction doctor with support from the centres’ well-trained staff. The symptoms of withdrawal can be challenging and painful to deal with without medication. Medical detox uses carefully selected medication to ease the symptoms and manage the physical effects on your body. For this reason, addiction detox without medication is not recommended. The detox period usually lasts around one week and once it is complete clients can begin to rebuild themselves as a clean and sober person through therapy with the centre’s councillors.
The drug and alcohol rehab in Essex specialises in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, recognised by the NHS and other health bodies as the best way to help those with addiction issues. CBT treatment is given by trained, qualified addiction councillors and helps you deal with the destructive thoughts and feelings that lead to addiction and self-destructive behaviour. Looking to build new, healthy thought patterns and a positive self-image is vital in dealing with addiction and its effects on your life.
Cognitive Behaviour Treatment helps those suffering from addiction to deal with the intellectual and emotional side of drug and alcohol rehabilitation. However, in our Essex rehab centre, there is also a focus on the physical health side of addiction. The body and mind are profoundly linked hence, the saying ‘healthy body healthy mind’. The Essex rehab program offers an optional fitness regime in a gym close by and yoga sessions to practice mindfulness and relaxation techniques. Clients are encouraged to take part in beach walks and make use of the garden area of the centre as well.

Can I use my phone in the Essex rehab centre?
