Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Kent
Cassiobury Court now offers drug and alcohol rehabilitation services for patients living in Kent. Our drug and alcohol recovery team consists of expert psychiatrists, psychotherapists and psychiatric nurses. If you suffer from an addiction to drugs or alcohol then call our team today on 01923 804 139. We offer fully tailored and personalised detox and rehab services. The recovery plan you receive is written up with specific reference to your unique physical and emotional challenges that must be overcome. We believe each individual is unique and thus we reject any notion of a ‘standardised’ recovery plan. Our fresh approach to drug and alcohol treatment is proven to afford our patients with strong odds of staying ‘in recovery’ for the rest of their lifetime.
When you contact Cassiobury Court for drug and alcohol treatment in Kent, the first milestone we must address is patient fact-finding. This fact-finding process is known as ‘assessment’. This assessment typically takes place over the phone. You will be guided by an experienced admissions counsellor. This counsellor asks questions to allow us to collect all relevant information regarding your addiction to drugs or alcohol. Once we’ve built up an accurate picture of the severity and duration of your addiction, we then recommend a suitable rehabilitation programme. The severity of addiction generally impacts the required duration of rehabilitation. Many long-term addicts will require around twenty-eight days in our care in order to fully recover, whilst patients suffering from a recent ‘relapse’ may require only seven or ten days in our care.
Upon admission, each patient receives a thorough physical and psychological assessment carried out by a fully qualified psychiatrist. Patients must attend our rehabilitation centre on a ‘residential’ basis. This really means you must live within the recovery centre whilst undergoing treatment. The first stage of rehabilitation for drug and alcohol addiction in Kent is detoxification. Detoxification marks the beginning of an abstinence lifestyle that living ‘in recovery’ demands. Patients are given a range of medications that reduce otherwise painful ‘withdrawal symptoms’ that occur during detoxification. The so-called ‘acute’ period of detoxification carries on for around five days following admission.
Emphasising therapy and counselling
During rehabilitation, patients also take part in a structured programme of therapy. Therapy techniques we offer include cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy and so-called ‘holistic therapies’. The latter includes reiki, reflexology, art therapy, music therapy, mindfulness and yoga. Taken together, these therapies arm patients with the mental strength required to remain ‘in recovery’ for the rest of their lifetime.
Following residential treatment, each patient receives a tailored aftercare programme. This programme is dispensed on an outpatient basis. This means patients return to their home and attend the rehabilitation centre one day a week, typically during the weekend. We also encourage patients to attend their local Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or SMART Recovery meeting upon their return home.
