We understand your Addiction to Prescription drugs
If you or someone you know and care for is suffering with prescription drug addiction we can offer a comprehensive support package.
Prescription drug addiction has seen a dramatic rise across the UK and the world in the recent years due to the increasing availability and overly prescriptive doctors. Many people are unaware just how addictive prescription drugs are and see them in a different light from illegal drugs.
At The Sensatori retreat we believe we have one of the best programs in the world to stop prescription drug addiction. Prescription Drug addiction has a devastating effect on many people’s lives. Not only does it affect the user but normally those closest to them. Without the correct treatment, guidance and advice the consequences can eventually be fatal. Some people may become addicted to more than one prescription drug and even cross addict with illegal substances and alcohol. Thankfully here at The Sensatori Retreat we can offer detox from a wide range of substances and even complex cross addictions.
The first step in treatment for prescription drug addiction is the realisation that a problem exists. Acceptance can be the hardest step in recovery and denial plays a big part in this. Here at Serenity Health we offer an abstinence based treatment programme that avoids the use of mind altering substances. Firstly we like to assess our clients and in particular their drug use and quantities involved. We are fully aware each individual differs in their usage and also investigate the possibility of other dependencies. We will then provide a comprehensive personalised program to suit your individual needs. We assign a specialist counsellor to work with you on a one on one basis to explore the underlying issues and ultimately help you understand why you are using.
Our daily program consists of group therapy, workshops, relaxation, stress management and a healthy diet. We believe this is the best approach to conquering addictions. We are strong believers that education to those around you is a foundation of recovery and as such offer family days within the retreat. We believe this is a beneficial part of recovery as prescription drug addiction can have devastating effects on family and friends as well as the addict.
Once you have completed your residential program we offer on-going support. We pride ourselves on taking a personal interest in our clients and ensuring the stay clean. We offer a comprehensive aftercare program that covers relapse prevention, risk management and life management.
At Serenity Health we improve our client’s behaviours and thought patterns surrounding drug use and how to live a fulfilling life free of addiction. All of our staff have been there themselves and demonstrate there is the possibility of living a successful and fulfilling life after prescription drug addiction.
