We have treatment centres for drug and alcohol rehab in Eastleigh
Anybody that has been affected by addiction will know how truly devastating this illness can be. Although there are fewer physical symptoms for family members and loved ones, the psychological trauma they undergo can be equally damaging. Nothing hurts more than watching a person you care about disintegrate almost completely under the influence of harmful, dangerous substances.
With this in mind, our Cassiobury Court drug and alcohol rehab centre in Eastleighaims to provide both addicts and their close ones with a supportive, open space to recover from addiction. Addiction is a serious illness which needs proper care and management to overcome. Unfortunately, many people suffering from drug and alcohol addiction don’t receive the medical attention they need. If their case worsens, addiction can even be fatal.
Drug deaths in Eastleigh have recently doubled and it is important to know that help is available through our private rehab centre if needed. The first step to overcoming your addiction is to pick up the phone and call our friendly team today on 0800 001 4070.
The Effects That Alcoholism Can Have on Your Mental Health
If there’s one thing you must understand about addiction it’s that it is a serious mental illness. The overwhelming, powerful urges to reach for an alcoholic drink all come from the brain. Under the grips of addiction, the chemical balance of your brain is significantly affected.
Your brain understands the ‘reward system’ and if something makes your body feel good, it will crave more and more of it. But your brain also develops a tolerance to alcohol – the same as your other major organs. When certain levels of alcohol don’t have the same effect, the urges to consume more and more will become impossible to ignore.
Alcoholism is the most severe case of alcohol abuse. People suffering from alcoholism will rarely go a day without drinking. Even worse, they’ll rarely be able to settle for ‘one or two drinks’. A small glass of wine with dinner can quickly turn in to multiple bottles.
Alcohol Abuse and Your Mental Health
But everything we’ve discussed so far, believe it or not, is focusing on the effect of alcohol on your major organs – even when we’re talking about your brain. The truth is that alcohol addiction has a serious and potentially long-lasting effect on your mental health as well.
There have been many studies attempting to establish a link between mental health issues and alcohol abuse. Some studies point towards one being the cause of the other: others suggest the opposite. Alcohol addiction is a complex disease, and there is believed to be no one defining reason that a person can become addicted.
For those that are addicted, pre-existing mental health conditions will only worsen. The initial feelings of relaxation and confidence addicts enjoy after one or two drinks will quickly become negative and dark feelings.
Alcoholics will often complain of anxiety and depression. These are two of the most common mental health problems that alcohol addicts will suffer from. Stress is another common issue and without alcohol in their system, alcohols can go to very dark places. Many addicts, waking up after a heavy session, will suffer from panic attacks and suicidal thoughts. Their irritability and low moods can also have an effect on relationships with family members and colleagues.
Alcohol addiction can have a grave effect on your mental health. It’s important that you know what alcohol can do to your mental wellbeing. That way, you’ll be aware of the warning signs.
Are There Cures for Alcohol Addiction?
So how do you cure the effects of alcohol on your mental health? You might be drinking to smother the feelings of stress. You might end up having a heavy session in an attempt to forget about anxious, nervy feelings. If alcohol is the answer to your mental health, then how do you solve the mental health issues caused by alcohol?
At Cassiobury Court, we teach you that alcohol isn’t the answer to any of your problems. Expert therapists at our drug and alcohol rehab centre in Eastleigh will show you how detrimental alcohol can be.
They’ll teach you to look for triggers which would normally make you reach for a drink. After attending our private rehab centres, patients leave with a deeper understanding about their addiction. Not only that, they leave with new mechanisms and techniques to cope with any of the triggers which would have pushed them towards a drink in the past.
Going ‘cold turkey’ alone can be fatal. That’s how serious alcohol addiction can be. Once you’ve undergone the detox phase under the supervision of our medical team, your time at our rehab centres will be spent exploring any underlying mental health issues. You’ll learn about them, about how to combat them, and how to deal with life’s daily conundrums in a healthy, positive way.

Contact Cassiobury Court Today
Addiction can take everything from you. As well as putting your body at risk, you might also be seriously affecting your mental health and happiness. Extremely low feelings lead some addicts to suicide. Irritability and short tempers damage relationships with people who are trying to help you the most. If you haven’t already isolated family members and friends, they’ll find it even more difficult to support you.

It’s a pleasure to have been a client at Cassiobury Court. From the moment I arrived I felt like a welcome part of the family, it’s non judgmental and compassionate approach to recovery has differed from any center which I have previously attended. The structure allowed me to develop at my own pace and to work through my recovery journey, which started with me at an all time low. When I entered I was a shell of a person, after a toxic relationship. My substance misuse and eating disorder was out of control and my health, mental and physical, was deteriorating rapidly. The staff, each with there own expertise and experience guided me compassionately and from a genuine place of kindness and warmth. The facilities, all departments from housekeeping, kitchen to admin and support staff, have made a genuine difference to the person I am leaving as. Strong, rebuilt and confident. Ready to step into a life of sobriety and positivity. I have made life long friends and made life long changes thanks to Cassiobury. I can genuinely recommend Cassiobury, to anyone who has found themselves in the depths of there addiction, they will help you find the path out, however unmanageable life may seem. All my love to the team there and to the clients past, present and future Amy x
I’ve very recently attended the Cassiobury Court rehab facility and highly recommend the services provided. Set in a quiet location with enclosed courtyard the bedrooms, tutorial rooms and dining rooms are well maintained, impeccably clean and mostly modern internally The biggest plus is the wealth of experience and quality of counsellors, tutors and many of the supporting staff who themselves are recovering alcoholics/ addicts. Conducted in a structured but relaxed atmosphere the breadth and depth of tuition and counselling is such that it stimulates the open, positive participation of Clients whilst always being supportive of both the group and the individual. This is greatly enhanced with the attendance of local ‘live’ external CA meetings, zoom meetings and visiting ‘shares’ from recovering addicts. With superb catering and even a washing and cleaning service included It’s an experience that bettered my expectations and was great fun also.
The only way that I can start this review is by saying that Cassiobury Court saved my life. I have had a severe problem with alcohol for over 10 years and I almost lost everything, but due to the care, consideration and commitment the facility has to offer, I have been given the opportunity to start again and live a full life with sobriety. The sessions have not only taught me more about the illness and severity of it, but has also equipped me with the coping mechanisms and skills to manage those negative feelings and maintain a happy & healthy lifestyle. Each Recovery Practitioner provides a different approach and continued to show their professionalism and dedication to the cause before and even after my stay. I will be forever grateful to Cassiobury and I couldn't recommend it more.
I have had serious addiction problems for the last 10 years that have ruined my life and the life of my loved ones. I am in my early 30’s and this was my third time in rehab but my first time staying at Cassiobury Court. The difference between Cassiobury and other facilities is incredible and you can’t compare with the level of support and love. The staff are kind, caring and know exactly what you are going through and what you need to do in order to get better. They have multiple different ways and techniques to support you and go above and beyond in every possible way to help you. Not only do they support you while you’re there but they also support you for the first year you leave with weekly catch up sessions. I have left Cassiobury with a huge network of people in recovery. Before I was lost and alone. I can’t thank Cassiobury enough for giving me another chance at life and I’ll be forever truly grateful ❤️❤️❤️
Had the most amazing experience at Cassiobury Court, guided me through my issues and left me full of knowledge, positivity and hope. The amazing staff are always smiling, always offering sound advice when needed, and always there if you just need a chat, they treat you as their peers and make you feel instantly relaxed. Couldn't recommend the place more - go in with an open mind, be honest about everything and be willing to recover! (P.s. also great food ?)
Cassiobury Court is a fantastic, peaceful place to recover. I am leaving today and can’t be more grateful to the staff and fellow residents who have made my stay such a wonderful experience. All the staff are happily prepared to go the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. There are a great range of workshops and activities to help you explore how your mind, body and spirit can assist with your recovery. The kitchen team provide nutritionally balanced food options and if you don’t fancy what is on the menu they are happy to make something to your taste. The rooms, facilities and grounds are immaculately maintained. I am positive about the future.
