Drug and Alcohol Rehab Ellesmere Port

Some people might also think that there is something wrong or shameful about suffering from addiction and going into rehab. Addiction can affect anyone, however. It’s true that there are some demographics that are more likely to be affected by substance misuse issues and some individuals might be more susceptible to some types of addiction than others. Anyone can become addicted to drugs or alcohol though and, once they do, it can be very difficult to break free.

Addiction is considered to be a disease or disorder of the brain but there will probably always be people who remain judgemental about the whole issue. This doesn’t apply to anyone working within drug and alcohol treatment centres, however.

Our professional staff and resident experts have a wealth of experience dealing with all aspects of addiction and people from all sorts of situations. Rehab places for drugs and alcohol can offer discrete and confidential advice and treatment in a secure and completely non-judgemental environment.


Why is addiction so hard to beat?

As mentioned, addiction is a serious disease or disorder.

Psychology Today says: “Substance use and gambling disorders are complex conditions that affect the reward, reinforcement, motivation, and memory systems of the brain. They are characterized by impaired control over usage; social impairment, involving the disruption of everyday activities and relationships; and craving.”

Crucially, a key characteristic of addiction is that the addict will continue to use the substance or pursue the activity regardless of any physical and psychological damage or other negative consequences. This means that it is extremely difficult for the addict to simply stop drinking or taking drugs because they are aware of the harm they are doing to themselves and others around them.

Addictions can also get worse over time, as tolerance for drugs or alcohol increase and the withdrawal symptoms when the addict does not get the substance they crave get progressively worse.

Many addicts do want to stop but will fail to do so as the cravings and withdrawal symptoms prove too much to overcome. This can lead to a constant yo-yo-ing with addict’s confidence and self-esteem damaged every time they fail to quit or fall back off the wagon. This can be counterproductive and can even lead to the problem getting worse.

Thankfully though, addiction CAN be treated and a stay in a drug rehab UK clinic is perhaps the single most effective way to break that destructive cycle.


Coming off drugs or alcohol in rehab

Some people do attend rehab without having taken any drugs or drank alcohol recently, but it is far more common for an addict to go through detox as part of the treatment program. This is when alcohol or drugs leave your system and it can be a very difficult time to get through.

Withdrawal symptoms can vary depending on a number of factors, including the substance involved and the heaviness and length of use. You will have access to round the clock support and medical assistance if required though, such as monitoring for delirium tremens (the DTs) for alcohol withdrawal.

The majority of withdrawal symptoms will have subsided within 10-14 days of starting detox, but some psychological issues could last much longer and cravings can continue to occur for a very long time.



Further treatment options for long term recovery

There are many reasons why people who have got clean and sober relapse and fall back into their bad old habits. There’s no guarantee and for lots of recovering addicts, that recovery is a long-term and sometimes a lifelong battle. There are things that you can do to minimise the risk of returning to drinking or drug use though, and that is the focus of the next part of most addiction treatment programmes.

Group and individual therapy sessions can help you to explore the roots of your addiction and the way you think about your relationship with alcohol or drugs. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can be very valuable in this regard. CBT works on the theory that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations are all connected.

By breaking down overwhelming problems into more manageable parts and working on them, you can change the way you think and act and break vicious cycles of negativity. CBT is commonly used to treat anxiety and depression but can also be very helpful for a number of other psychological issues, including addiction.

Many addicts do suffer from mental health issues as well, which may be caused or exacerbated by the addiction and substance misuse. The relationship between substance misuse and mental health is complex but many recovering addicts find they need help during and after detox. We can ensure a range of highly skilled psychologists and psychiatrists are on hand to help you if you do suffer from these problems.

Our treatment service for drug or alcohol addiction does not stop as soon as you leave the premises either. We know that many people struggle with the threat of relapse so we will draft a personalised discharge plan accompanied with a range of aftercare options. We can also familiarise you with concepts like the 12-step programme and put you in touch with relevant and reputable charities and other organisations that can offer support going forward.

Outpatient Treatment

You can also seek outpatient treatment in the local area through your local GP. If you are registered with Hope Medical Centre, York Road Medical Centre or any other GP in the Ellesmere Port Area.

Your GP will be able to give you a physical check and also give you information about support for any NHS services available to you in Ellesmere Port and the wider Wirral region.

So don’t delay, get in touch today for your first steps towards a brighter life free from the misery of addiction to drugs or alcohol.


Our Drug and Alcohol Rehab Costs

Our rehab centre offers customised treatment plans tailored to your individual needs, meaning the cost of your stay with us will vary depending on factors such as the length of your programme, the specific therapies required, and any medications you may need.

For those seeking just a supervised medical detox for drug or alcohol addiction, we recommend our 7-day programme, which typically costs around £3,500.

If you’re looking for a more comprehensive treatment option, we suggest our 28-day rehab programme. This option includes detoxification, therapy, and counselling, with our team working closely with you to address any underlying issues and equip you with the tools to lead a fulfilling life in sobriety.

It’s important to note that additional costs may be incurred based on factors such as the location of our facility, the amenities available, and your insurance coverage.

Our team is always here to assist you in making the best decision for your recovery journey. If you would like more information on our services and pricing, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

    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.

    I stayed at Cassiobury Court for 28 days in December 2021 to January 2022 and I'm now 110 days clean and sober. The level of care and support you receive here from all the staff is outstanding. From admissions, to leaving through to aftercare I cannot thank everybody enough. They tirelessly go above and beyond to help every individual to get them back on track with detox, step work, one-to-one therapy, group therapy, acupuncture, fitness and good food. Each patient is different and the staff keep a very close eye on each individuals personal circumstances and try to guide them to the best of their abilities. Truely inspirational as have all been through the hell of addiction themselves so there is zero judgement. If you want it bad enough this is the safest environment to be in. I actually miss them all!!!

    I have just finished up my treatment at Cassiobury Court which is my 2nd in two years. Initially I had gone for only 2 weeks but did 21 days (28 days is still recommended). The staff was absolutely incredibly; knowledgable, supportive, organised and REAL. Addiction is a serious disease and if you are serious about recovery and want to live a strong, healthier, more spiritual and joyful life - you should admit you are powerlessness and get the support from Cassiobury Court. The programs are incredibly valuable in group settings to hear other like experiences with the addition of private `Step (1-3) work and therapy sessions with professionals. If you are looking at this review, it means you are looking for help. Get here, get sober, find your new life starting at Cassiobury Court.

    A superb venue for anyone who would like to begin the real journey of recovery from addiction. Every single member of staff cares and they cannot do enough with an always cheerful approach and outlook. This was my third visit to different Rehabs and this one has made by far the most difference. The therapy is second to none and the food is outstanding. Highly recommended.

    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.
