Drug and Alcohol Rehab Heywood
Many people in the UK are suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction, in fact, this is a worldwide issue where more support needs to be made available for those who need it.
If you’re living with an addiction to alcohol or drugs, you’ll likely feel as though the substance is controlling you and find it extremely difficult to get out of the vicious circle that is substance abuse. Despite these challenges, there is help out there that many people are taking advantage of as they choose to live a life free from drugs and alcohol.
If you’re tired of your addiction impacting almost every aspect of your life from deteriorating your physical and psychological health, to devastating your relationships with loved ones, our drug and alcohol rehab Heywood is here to guide you along your road to recovery so that you can create a happier and healthier future for yourself and for your loved ones.
The first step towards seeking professional support can often be the most difficult as many people who suffer from addiction find it difficult to accept that they have a problem at all; they’re often in denial about their condition which makes seeking help very difficult.
Once you’ve contacted our drug and alcohol rehab Heywood either over the phone or via email, we can discuss the various treatment options we have available to help you achieve a long-term recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. We will invite you to a pre-screening assessment where we can get to know you better and understand more about the nature of your addiction so that we can design the most effective addiction treatment plan tailored to your needs.
If you’re happy to proceed, we aim to welcome you into our rehab centre within 48 hours of your initial contact with our admissions team.
Benefits of Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Choosing between a residential rehab or an outpatient rehab isn’t a decision that’s to be made lightly. There isn’t a right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing between the two but they’ll likely be one that’s better suited to your lifestyle or that will produce better results in your recovery.
If you join rehab as an outpatient you’ll stay at home whilst visiting our drug and alcohol rehab Heywood each day to receive your addiction treatment. Whereas, with residential rehab, you stay at our treatment centre overnight for the duration of your rehabilitation.
Some people find outpatient rehab to be more flexible around their personal circumstances as they can remain at home for the majority of their treatment. However, there are downsides to outpatient treatment if you have distractions or negative influences at home then your recovery might not be as effective as it could be.
Joining residential rehab is a bigger commitment as you spend every night at our drug and alcohol rehab centre, although, it’s been proven that by physically detaching yourself from your home environment and recovering in a highly focused setting, your recovery will likely be more successful.
In residential rehab you also benefit from around-the-clock care from our expert team of recovery workers and are able to share your experience with others who are in a similar situation to you.
What Addictions are Treated in Rehab?
Our rehab centre in Heywood predominately focuses on treating drug or alcohol addiction. We do have specialist programmes for heroin addiction, cannabis addiction, or cocaine addiction too. All of our addiction treatment plans include therapy sessions which focus on breaking both your physical and psychological connections to the substance in addition to improving your general well-being throughout the treatment process.
All of our clients will also receive simultaneous treatment for any mental health issues such as anorexia, binge eating disorder, bulimia, eating disorder treatment, food addiction treatment, and obesity treatment. Many people are surprised at how common it is to see drug or alcohol addiction and mental health issues together, but the two often come hand in hand and are closely linked.
If you’re suffering from both an addiction to alcohol or drugs and a mental health issue, then we refer to this as a dual diagnosis. Our expert team are very familiar with treating a dual diagnosis so it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. When someone is living with a mental health issue, they may resort to drugs or alcohol as a way to cope with their psychological pain.
Likewise, when someone has excessively consumed alcohol or drugs over a long period, they’ll likely develop mental health issues as a result of the toxins within these substances affecting the make-up of their brain, leaving them unable to function as they once did.
Detox Treatment Heywood
Alongside your psychological therapies which may include stress management, counselling, relapse prevention, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy, and psychotherapy, we also highly recommend undergoing a clinical drug or alcohol detoxification.
Completing detox is the most effective way to cleanse your body and mind of the toxins that are impacting your health as a result of your addiction. It’s vital that you only ever undergo a detox with the supervision of a medical team within a professional rehab centre as this is the only way to reduce the risk of withdrawal symptoms.
Whilst withdrawal symptoms are a common aspect of detoxification, they can be quite dangerous when not managed correctly. Withdrawal symptoms can range from mild nausea, headaches, and dizziness, to more severe symptoms such as insomnia, seizures, and delirium tremens (the DT’s).
Our team can administer prescribed medication where necessary to ease some of the discomforts from these withdrawal symptoms.

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.
When you have finished a course of treatment at Cassiobury Court’s drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre you will go back to living your life. However, with the benefit of the emotional and lifestyle changes adopted during your time at rehab, you will be able to start living your life safely and soberly. As mentioned above, you will also have the benefit of our one-year aftercare programme to get you through those first, all-important twelve months.
Approaching someone about their addiction is a very delicate issue. If you do not approach an alcohol intervention or substance abuse intervention correctly then you risk pushing that person further away from receiving treatment. Family intervention should be conducted with care, and compassion, and ideally with a trained professional there to assist. Making the person suffering from addiction feel attacked is the opposite of what you want to achieve. We may be able to help with this stage if you call us and ask about our family and friend referral schemes.
