We specialise in drug and alcohol withdrawal and treatment, so we focus on your acute care during your detox process and plan with you a comprehensive treatment plan to ensure sustainable long term recovery. Our staff are devoted to getting you through the initial stages of your detox in the most comfortable way possible.
We offer clients a complete addiction withdrawal program including medical assessment and supervision, counselling, medication, healthy nutrition and lifestyle advice.
We are with you every step of the way
Every step of your recovery is supported. You may need a 7-day drug or alcohol withdrawal program. You may need a longer all inclusive holistic treatment plan. You may need both. Or you may just need a big rest away from the pressures of life to work on your health recovery.
Our intake staff will assist you to plan your stay to achieve your goals. Identifying the root cause of your addiction and having lifestyle strategies to overcome cravings is vital.
Our goal is to make sure you complete your withdrawal and recovery process successfully and learn relapse prevention strategies. Our post-withdrawal support program team will support your sobriety after you leave and help you stay in touch. Relapse prevention is an integral part of this program to ensure sustainable long term recovery.
Medication and pharmacotherapy
During your detox phase, medication is an important strategy to help minimise side effects and cravings or help you sleep. This is called pharmacotherapy and is a specialised area of medicine. Our visiting doctors and staff nurses are qualified to assist you in your medication management. We also offer a healthy dietary regime for your recovery.
Daily therapies include one-one counselling therapy. Our therapists offer the following counselling strategies and therapies for addiction management:
- Psychology and Psychotherapy
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Psycho-dynamic Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Solution Focused Therapy
- Narrative Therapy
- Relapse Prevention
- Brief and Early Intervention
- Pharmacotherapy (medication)
We also believe addiction recovery responds well to specialised medical intervention alongside complementary therapies.
For this reason all clients are offered complementary therapies for their withdrawal and rehabilitation phases as a personal choice.
Finding emotional balance and mental relaxation is vital to prevent relapse. Our team will help you design a wellbeing routine that will suit your recovery program.
- Methamphetamine (Ice)
Our complementary therapists offer a range of modalities to complement your detox, including:
- Acupressure, Reflexology and Bowen therapy
- Diet, supplementation and nutritional advice
- Swimming, water and spa therapy
- Far Infra-Red therapy
Why residential detox?
A residential detox provides a medically supervised environment in which clients can safely withdraw from their substance/s of choice. Clients are monitored 24/7 by trained staff to ensure withdrawal symptoms are managed and clients feel as comfortable as they can.
Detoxing from all substances will lead to withdrawal symptoms. Even stopping something as benign as coffee can give daily coffee drinkers severe headaches, fatigue and anxiety as their body adjusts to the lack of caffeine in their system.
A residential supported detox helps reduce the risks of medical complications arising from withdrawal symptoms. It helps minimise the risk of a quick relapse and gives clients the best chance at long term recovery.
