The Treatment Program
The aim of the treatment program at the centre is to treat the underlying problem and not just the symptoms. This means that helping the individual stop the alcohol and drug abuse is just the beginning of the journey. Each client will be assessed and will then be given their own unique treatment plan. The aim is to self empower the individual so that they will be better able to manage their own future and find happiness.
Best Suited For
This facility will work well for clients of varying needs and requirements. The program is based on providing each person with what they need. This is also a particularly good option for those individuals who may be dealing with other mental health problems alongside their addiction. It may also be a good choice for couples who wish to go through treatment together.
