Drug and Alcohol Rehab Glossop
Are There Rehab Centres in Glossop?
As Glossop is a relatively small town, you might have to look a little further afield for private residential rehab centres. Manchester lies around 15 miles to the west and Sheffield is around 24 miles in the opposite direction. You might also decide to travel further if you find a rehab centre that is the right fit for you. As you ‘live in’ during the treatment programme, the only issues may be transport to and from the centre (which can be provided) and accessibility if your treatment programme involves family therapy.
Inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab is generally the most effective way of treating serious addiction problems as you will be in a safe environment away from the stresses and triggers of everyday life, allowing you to really concentrate on your recovery.
You will be able to undergo the important period of detoxification under medical supervision and participate in a completely tailored treatment programme designed to address every aspect of your drug addiction.
Outpatient Treatment in Glossop
There are other alternatives to residential rehab available in Glossop and surrounding areas. Drug and alcohol services for adults in Derbyshire are provided by the Derbyshire Recovery Partnership. This is a partnership between 4 organisations – Derbyshire Healthcare Foundation Trust, Phoenix Futures, DAAS and Intuitive Thinking Skills.
They offer a number of treatment options including:
- Opiate Substitute Prescribing
- Alcohol Relapse Prevention Prescribing
- Detox options for both opiates & alcohol
- Psychosocial Interventions
- Recovery Support
This can be very valuable of course, but there are limitations in any kind of outpatient treatment. Unlike residential rehab such as ours at Cassiobury Court, you may still be surrounded by the people, places and situations that are associated with your drinking or drug use. It can be all too tempting to seek out drugs or alcohol when the going gets tough, especially when intense cravings or withdrawal symptoms kick in.
You will also have to attend various sessions and appointments, which can be difficult if you are struggling with motivation and/or organisation due to your substance misuse issues.
Find a GP in Glossop
Your GP can also help you in a number of ways. They might not have the skills or resources to treat drug or alcohol issues directly but can be great for signposting and referring you to the people who can. Doctors can also assess your overall health, including any physical or mental health issues that may be connected with your drinking or drug use.
There are a number of GP practices in Glossop, including Manor House Surgery, Howard Medical Practice and Cottage Lane Surgery.
You can also search for GPs in your local area on the NHS website.
Addiction Support Groups
Support groups and helplines can also be valuable resources if you are struggling with drug and alcohol issues. Some, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous hold in-person meetings as well as virtual ones. Some of these may be in or around Glossop but the locations and schedules can change over time so check on their websites – each allows you to quickly search for meetings close to you.
There are also numerous helplines and websites you can contact for help and advice, including:
What Happens in Rehab?
Rehab programmes can vary, as can the facilities available from one place to the next. There are some things you can reasonably expect to find at any rehab centre, however.
For most people, the rehabilitation programme starts with a period of drug or alcohol detoxification. This is the point during which you process the alcohol and drugs already in your system, sometimes from years or decades of abuse.
It can be accompanied by severe cravings and a range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. These can vary widely depending on the substance involved and the heaviness and duration of use, as well as other factors. Any withdrawal symptoms tend to be very unpleasant though and some may be dangerous.
Undergoing drug detox in rehab means you will have access to care, support and medical supervision, with no temptation to alleviate the symptoms yourself by going back to drugs or alcohol.
Detox will be followed or accompanied by a range of therapies and other treatments aimed at addressing the psychological aspects of your addiction and the root causes of your drinking or drug use. This is important for helping you to maintain your recovery when you leave, as are relapse prevention sessions that can help you to develop strategies for staying clean moving forward.
At Cassiobury Court, we use evidence-led techniques such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing and mental health support, along with well-being therapies including art and music therapies, relaxation and sleep management, and diet and nutrition therapies. The idea is to use a holistic approach to treat every part of the addiction and improve your overall physical and mental well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions
Anyone who is struggling with addiction is welcome at Cassiobury Court. All you need to do is contact us and go through our free pre-admission screening process, so we can assess your case and determine the best course of treatment for you.
There are lots of different warning signs that you may be developing an addiction, and no list will be definitive. The biggest red flags to look out for are if you find yourself constantly looking forward to or planning your next drink or hit, and if you find yourself feeling unwell or unusual if you haven’t had any alcohol or drugs. If you regularly find yourself drinking or using in secret, or feeling ashamed and trying to hide your consumption from friends and family, that may also be a sign that things are getting out of hand. Ultimately, if you find yourself truly worried that you may have developed an addiction, the chances are that there is a problem growing. The best thing to do is reach out for help and advice.
Any reputable drug and alcohol treatment centre will provide you with a personalised aftercare plan. Our rehab understands that your aftercare is equally as important as your main treatment programme. Once you’ve completed your drug or alcohol detox and subsequent therapies at our addiction rehab, you’ll return home to continue along your road to recovery. All of our clients will receive a 12-month aftercare plan free of charge inclusive of dedicated helplines and access to local support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous.
