Drug and Alcohol Rehab Bingley
If you have a problem with drugs or alcohol, you are certainly not alone. There are an estimated 600,000 dependent drinkers in England alone, with less than a fifth of them currently receiving any kind of treatment.1
It is not as easy to provide accurate estimates for the number of people addicted to legal and prescription drugs due to their illicit nature, but this is also a major problem throughout the UK and any kind of addiction can be extremely harmful.
If you are struggling with these issues, there’s no need to struggle alone. Breaking free from drug and alcohol addiction can be extremely difficult without expert guidance, but any addiction can be successfully treated. At Cassiobury Court, we offer high-quality accommodation with medically supervised detox and outstanding therapy programmes that are proven to support your recovery from addiction and help improve all aspects of your life.

Signs That You Have an Addiction
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), drug and alcohol addiction refers to the repeated and compulsive use of a psychoactive substance where they have great difficulty in stopping or modifying their substance use and where they show determination to get the substance by almost any means.
They will generally have built up a tolerance to the substance (meaning they need more and more for the same effect) and withdrawal symptoms will often occur when the substance use is interrupted. The addict’s life may also be dominated by the drugs or alcohol “to the virtual exclusion of all other activities and responsibilities”.2
If any of that sounds familiar, you might have an addiction problem that needs dealing with urgently. Even if you do not have a full-blown addiction, there may be a problem with drugs or alcohol leading you in that direction.
- Do you drink or use drugs regularly
- Do you frequently get intoxicated?
- Do you continue to use despite the negative consequences?
- Have you tried and failed to quit or cut down?
- Do you need to use more for the same effect?
- Do you get anxious when you don’t have access to drugs or alcohol?
- Do you avoid situations where you can’t drink or use drugs?
- Does substance use ever take priority over other activities and responsibilities?
- Do you feel negative effects (withdrawal symptoms) when you don’t drink or use drugs?
If the answer to any of these is ‘yes’, you may have a problem and it is always best to seek professional help at alcohol rehab as early as possible. Left untreated, a drug or alcohol problem can easily spiral into addiction. Continued substance misuse can cause a lot of harm to your physical and mental health, relationships, work-life and pretty much every other aspect of your life.
Benefits of Choosing Private Rehab
Realising that you need help is always a positive step but there are still decisions to be made. One big choice is whether to seek help through the NHS or to go to a private residential rehab. The NHS route is free but unfortunately, resources tend to be very stretched.
There may be waiting lists and treatment is generally delivered on an outpatient basis. This means you stay at home and attend treatment sessions at various clinics. Managing your own appointments and detoxification can be very challenging when you are struggling with addiction. Many people tend to be very disorganised and it can be difficult to resist temptations and triggers.
With residential alcohol and drug rehab, you are away from the people and places associated with your drinking and/or drug use. In fact, you will be in a secure environment with no access to these substances, which can really help you focus on your recovery. You will be able to go through the crucial detox period under medical supervision and will have access to the best round-the-clock care and support.
You will also benefit from a structured programme of therapies tailored to your own unique situation and requirements. Because a residential rehab programme is so structured and compact, it actually takes a lot less time than most outpatient treatment programmes.
Alcohol and Drug Detox Process
Detoxification or the drug and alcohol detox is when your body processes the toxic elements of drugs and alcohol out of your system. Long-term drug or alcohol use can change the way the brain works and your system comes to rely on the chemicals they provide. When the drug is removed, this can result in a range of different physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms.
These can vary in type and severity depending on the substance involved and other factors. They are all unpleasant though and can also be dangerous. Going through drug detox in rehab is still very challenging but you will have the full support and medical supervision to make sure the process is safe and to help you get through the worst of any withdrawal symptoms and cravings. This may involve prescription medications, but only where this is appropriate.
Therapies for Drug and Alcohol Addiction
As well as detox you will also need to look at the root causes and psychological aspects of your substance misuse and addiction. This is done through a range of evidence-backed therapies, including:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Bereavement Counselling
- Trauma & Abuse Counselling
- Motivational Interviewing
- Recovery Planning
- Stress Management
- Relapse Prevention
- Family Intervention & Mediation Therapy
- NLP Counselling Therapy
- Reflections & Hope Group Therapy
At Cassiobury Court, we also offer dual diagnosis treatment where necessary and wellbeing therapies such as art, drama and music therapies, mindfulness and acupuncture.

Frequently Asked Questions
Professional rehabilitation works in a multitude of different ways. The blend of physical and psychological addiction treatment alongside being in an environment that is detached from your normal day-to-day life are all critical to how rehab works. However, for rehabilitation to truly work, you must be prepared to make necessary changes to yourself. If you’re ready to change your life to overcome your addiction, then drug and alcohol rehab will work for you.
Different treatment options require different timeframes. For some outpatient treatment programmes, therapy can last for up to twelve months. However, for most of Cassiobury Court’s residential treatment plans, you will be at our facility for around 28 days. This means that our residential rehab programmes are intensive courses during which you focus on nothing but your recovery. Sure, it might sound like a long time to be away, but that time will fly by before you know it.
