Rehab Gloucester Programme

Beyond the stunning surroundings, your experience at Abbeycare Hygrove Gloucester focuses on your needs, in order to foster true long term recovery.

We’ve helped hundreds overcome addiction, and whether you’re seeking treatment for alcohol or drugs – or something else – we’ll help you:

  • Complete a full and comfortable detox
  • Make sense of how events led to alcohol or drug addiction in your life
  • Address the underlying issues behind addiction in rehab, like beliefs, values, or behavioural patterns.
  • Build a robust aftercare plan, to avoid the mistakes of the past, and move forward in life with confidence


Typical Day In Rehab

After breakfast, a typical day’s schedule in our Gloucester clinic could see you enjoying meditation, uncovering personal insights in therapy, or making plans to regain structure in life, via aftercare support.

The Hygrove Gloucestershire programme is balanced, and structured. So, after the days work, perhaps you’ll be present at peer group meetings, enjoying holistic therapies, or simply socialising with other clients.

Detox, Rehab, Aftercare

With your personally assigned case manager in the clinic, together you’ll map out an individually tailored care plan, to help you move through detox, to therapy, aftercare, and beyond.

Wherever possible, we’ll personalise this to your needs, your progress in the clinic, and the areas of life which presented as most challenging, before treatment.

Are you ready to grow beyond addiction? At Abbeycare we have an established recovery program, that works.

We understand the signature of addiction, and the impact not only on your life, but on those around you.

Our Gloucester rehab therapists are ready to help you discover the triggers, conditionings, and associations paired up with your addiction, and what to do about them.

We can help you understand why addiction is in your life…what purpose it’s serving, and how to recover from it. You’ll identify and learn from the situations of the past, so that the future is brighter.

Holistic therapies and physical fitness are often an important part of the journey, helping maintain balance and equilibrium, as you continue to learn about yourself, and grow beyond addiction.

The Abbeycare Hygrove Gloucestershire Team Are Ready:
  • Our medical team are ready to help you detox, comfortably, and safely
  • Our clinic & therapeutic rehab team are ready to help you understand, forgive, and overcome
  • Your case manager is ready to help you regain structure in life…and lay out a road map for the future.

Are you ready to move beyond alcohol or drug addiction?
