Sleeping Pill Detoxification and Rehabilitation
Cassiobury Court offers a bespoke sleeping pill detoxification programme tackling the challenges arising from sleeping pill addiction.

Details of our sleeping pill detoxification programme
Before rehabilitation commences you must first tackle detoxification. During detoxification, sleeping pill drugs exit the body. Dosages may be gradually tapered away to avoid painful withdrawal symptoms. Detoxification takes place in our residential rehabilitation centre. Patients are starved of ‘addiction triggers’ during the period.
Powerful and painful withdrawal symptoms are monitored by our medical team. Typical withdrawal symptoms associated with sleeping pill detoxification include muscle pain, anxiety, insomnia, hallucinations, convulsions and possible digestion problems.
Once patients’ withdrawal symptoms decline a programme of therapy and counselling begins. Patients receive group and individual therapy but offered by experienced therapists. Cognitive behavioural therapy is used to alter thoughts and behaviours triggering addiction. Coping strategies are also taught. Patients learn to tackle external stimuli giving rise to thoughts and emotions promoting addiction. Learn more about our rehabilitation programme here.
