Shortly after your arrival, you will see a qualified addictions specialist Doctor for a consultation.

For those that have a drug or alcohol dependency, a full medical detox regime will be prescribed to assist with the detox process. We adhere to strict safety regulations ensuring your safety is paramount. Your detox will be monitored and supported by our fully trained staff for its duration. The team will work with medical staff and agencies to ensure you receive the appropriate care. If required a full assessment of any co-occurring existing illness will be arranged; we want to ensure you receive the correct treatment and medical assistance where required. Additional medication and vitamins may be prescribed in order to support your mental and physical recovery.

Any patient that needs a high level of urgent medical attention can be taken to the hospital to be seen and treated accordingly. Most complex detoxes that require 24/7 medical management, we can accommodate at our Bradford detox unit.

If you need to admit urgently support will be provided in terms of arrangements for work.

Your Stay

During your first few days of treatment with us, you will meet and work with our Counsellors and therapists. They will work with you to identify the underlying causes of your addiction. From there, your focal Counsellor will devise a full and comprehensive bespoke treatment plan. Your input into your treatment is valuable, so all goals and treatments will be pre-agreed by you so we can work together to help you recover fully.

If you are undergoing a medical detox with us, more intensive therapies will be delivered once you have finished the course of medication. During detox, you are likely to feel foggy and unfocused whilst the alcohol or drugs leave your system. You will still benefit from therapy and support delivered by our Counsellors, Therapists and Recovery Workers. Once your detox has been completed and you are able to think more clearly, we can then concentrate on your full mental, emotional and spiritual rehabilitation. Your individualised treatment plan will encompass a number of powerful and proven, effective addiction treatments, ensuring you receive the very best and advanced in cutting-edge addiction treatment care. Furthermore, you have a choice of a programme to follow. The benefits of both will be fully explained to you by your Counsellor who will assist you in making the correct decision for your recovery

Sober Transport

Taking this into account, we provide sober transportation for those that need it. We do not expect you to turn up sober, as stopping alcohol or drugs suddenly could have devastating effects on your health. Our sober transport driver is able to collect you from any location and deliver you safely to our care They will also assist you with packing and ensuring your property is secured before you leave. They are trained to help keep you calm during your journey and provide a friendly and professional service at all times.
