Our success in treatment is based on years of experience with what works in addiction recovery.
We treat each person who comes to us with care and respect, while providing a safe place for treatment. Our treatment philosophy is based on our belief that addiction is a disease and that abstinence is the best way to manage the condition.
We approach treatment in a holistic way, working with mind, body and spirit as components for a healthy life. Alcohol and drug addiction treatment is delivered by our team of professionals including nurses, psychiatrists, substance abuse/addiction counsellors and recreation specialists.
We offer a broad range of counselling services designed exclusively to meet the unique emotional and mental health needs of individuals, and their families, recovering from alcohol, drugs and related diseases. Given our years of experience, we ensure that clients receive high quality, professional mental health, and counselling services consistent with Twelve Step principles, including abstinence from mood-altering drugs.
In Ireland it is estimated that one in ten people are alcoholic, and that alcoholism in one person, directly affects the lives of at least 4-5 others. Alcohol is a drug, a sedative, which depresses the central nervous system. Used consistently and long term, it can cause liver damage, heart and other health problems, and inevitably physical dependency. Alcoholism has a devastating impact on each family member and on the family as a whole.
Our Continuing Care Programme is available to everyone who completes the Residential Programme. It involves attending a support group session every week. At this meeting you will be encouraged to discuss your recovery and share the issues and problems that arise. We strongly encourage family members to become involved in the Continuing Care Programme. Everyone in a family is effected by addiction and can benefit from help and support through recovery.
If you are concerned about someone and your husband/wife or partner/sibling/friend doesn’t think he/she has a problem, then our family programme may be able to help.
One of the key features of addiction is that the individuals will often deny that there is any problem. You may also find that you, your family, friends, colleagues become involved in this denial, making excuses for, covering up for, and keeping secret the problems that arise.
