Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centres in Tyne & Wear


Residential rehab is the most effective treatment method for drug and alcohol addiction. There are many benefits to recovering within a community rather than trying to recover in isolation. There are many options for alcohol and drug rehab in Tyne and Wear. They are safe spaces, facilitated by trained and dedicated therapists

Why Choose Residential Rehab in Tyne & Wear?

An atmosphere of compassion and respectfulness in encouraged in the rehab community. Within this atmosphere of nurture, you will have the opportunity to recover alongside like-minded peers. During group therapy you will have the experience of sharing insights with one another – looking at yourself through the perception of others can be a very eye-opening and humbling experience.

We are all mirrors of each other:

Because we are all mirrors for each other, you will learn a lot about yourself from your peers in the community. The qualities we see in others are often directly related to the traits that we ourselves possess. Sometimes it can be really easy for us to perceive traits in other people and yet much more difficult to realise that we possess those same traits ourselves.

It is easy to see the traits you do not like in others. It is much more difficult to realise that you possess those same traits. When you see strength, resilience and kindness in others often you are seeing qualities in them which exist also in you.

When you see things in others which make you feel anger or hatred,  you may be seeing reflected back to you those parts of your own self that you cannot accept or do not like. We are all mirrors of each other.

Do I Need Rehab?

Top of Form

Everyone experiences challenging times in life, grief when we lose a loved one or anxiety about money. In difficult times drinking and using drugs may seem like an effective coping mechanism for a while. But it does not take long before addiction starts making all our problems much worse.

Going to alcohol or drug rehab will teach you skills for dealing with life safely and constructively. The key to understanding, if your using or drinking has become a problem, is in asking yourself how your using is impacting your life. Is your drug and alcohol use, or other addictive behaviours negatively affecting your relationships, your work and your health?

If you have been struggling in these areas and are still unable to stop drinking and using, the Tyne and Wear rehab services can offer you tailored and comprehensive support.

Do I Need Detox?

In rehab, you will have access to a full medical detox and a tailored alcohol and drug rehab programme for those suffering from alcohol and drug addiction. If you have become physically dependent on drugs or alcohol, it is important that you do not stop abruptly without the advice of a doctor, doing so can be both painful and dangerous.

If you attend rehab services in Tyne and Wear you will be assessed by a consultant on the day of your admission who will prescribe you a substance-specific medical detox. Dealing with the obsession to use and drink whilst going through detox can be really challenging.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need rehab or will detox be enough?

Getting clean and sober is a necessary first step but rehabilitation is much more than that. If we are to learn to cope with the illness of addiction, and our lives as sober people we must change our attitude and outlook, as well as getting clean. Through going to rehab we can change our thinking and our lives. We may not have been responsible for having the illness of addiction but we can take responsibility for our recovery.

In rehab, we will learn thinking skills which will allow us to move out of our problems and into solutions. If we do not change and learn a new way of being we will continue to live in the problem. We can recover and be happy, productive people. You do not have to be defined by your addiction. For every problem, there is a solution.

How can I fund my treatment?

If you are able to privately fund your rehab program you will probably find that there is little or even no waiting list prior to your assessment and admission. Because of this quick access, privately funding treatment is often the preferred option for those who can afford it.

To find out about an NHS funded place in rehab the first port of call should be a visit to your GP. Your doctor may then refer you on to a Tyne and Wear drug and alcohol service, please be aware there will usually be a significant wait for an NHS funded place in residential treatment.

What about my family?

We provide family therapy to support all of your healing as much as possible. If your family members are worried about you or need support they will are welcome to call and get support from our team.
