Addiction does not only relate to substance abuse and dependence but can actually mean a whole host of behavioural afflictions and issues. The aim of treatment that our associated rehabilitation centres provide is to help you in the direction of long term recovery. In order for our centres to do this, we need to evaluate and assess individual needs, as well as the expectation from the get-go.
Continuing on from the assessment period, we then give you assistance in long term recovery.
The important thing is that the treatment is tailored to your needs, many of our centres offer a flexible recovery plan where care and help are planned around you and your needs.
Due to the way our brains distribute dopamine and serotonin, two important happiness chemicals, in order to reward us for completing tasks, we can sometimes wire-ourselves in a way that creates harmful habits. This can theoretically be attached to almost any action or behaviour imaginable.
Why are some behaviours considered addictions? Behavioural addiction is an interesting phenomenon, we can observe certain addictions that we know to be harmful, for example, gambling addiction has been well documented and observed for centuries. Because each behavioural addiction ahs slightly different actions and behaviours based around it, it can arise from common and harmless habits such as shopping and exercise and therefore affect really anyone who has the potential to develop the habits, it’s also true however that some of these addictions can be particularly harmful like sex addiction and gambling addiction.
With a full diagnostic, we can determine what part of the behaviour you are struggling with and break the cycle of behaviour which perpetuates itself. Once it is broken you can steer yourself on the path to a healthier lifestyle and move forward in a positive way.

No matter what the problem is, we can offer a holistic and professional approach to unpack and resolve the issues presented. The recovery trust and associated rehabs can work to determine the source of the problem and underlying issues, which are usually rooted in trauma and negative thinking. We can then challenge these thoughts giving you a new outlook on life. And teach you to abstain from acting on your habitual behaviours. We can offer some powerful coping mechanisms for when you encounter times of crisis, this will prevent relapse.
All the approaches that are adopted by our recovery centres are constructed using purely evidence-based science and clinical understanding. As such, we utilise therapies and treatment that have been proven to work time and time again. All therapies are conducted by trained and experienced professionals. A therapist can include a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, counsellors, and specialists.
