Drug and alcohol rehabilitation can have a severe effect on the human body.

To help individuals navigate drug and alcohol detox, at Cassiobury Court, we provide holistic therapies to all of our clients.

Not only do holistic therapies help an individual relax, but they offer a sense of normality to those progressing through detoxification.


What Is Drug and Alcohol Detox?

Prior to delving into the holistic therapies for drug and alcohol detox at Cassiobury Court, it may be beneficial for you to understand what drug and alcohol detox is.

Essentially, drug and alcohol detox is the process in which you withdraw from the substance that you have become addicted to.  Often medically induced, detoxification is administered within our residential rehab by medical professionals who are on hand to provide around the clock care and support to our clients.

Although detox is a vital part of an individual’s recovery and is required in order to progress onto rehabilitation, detox can sadly cause a number of withdrawal symptoms to emerge.  While manageable, these symptoms can cause individuals pain and discomfort.

Considering this, we provide holistic therapies for drug and alcohol detox at Cassiobury Court to minimise the overall effect of the detox process.

Unlike detoxification and psychological therapies that focus solely on treating specific symptoms and conditions, holistic therapies provide unified treatments that focus on healing all aspects of an individual.

At present, it is estimated that nine million people take advantage of holistic therapies alongside medical treatments in the United Kingdom.
