Recovery is a Choice!
Addiction is not a choice but recovery is.
Nobody wants or chooses to be an addict.
However, you need to choose to stop your addiction.
The only way to change and recover from addiction is if you choose to do so.
Recovery requires you to comply with everything that your rehab programme askes of you.
It will not work if you only comply with parts that you like and defy the things that you don’t like.
Recovery only works when you completely commit yourself to change.
Recovery takes enormous effort especially for someone suffering from addiction.
It is not simple or easy.
It takes a lot of discipline, patience, commitment, and hard work.
At Abbeycare, our team of addiction experts will craft a customised treatment plan that will heal your mind, body, and spirit.
We will restore your health from the inside out so that you can achieve a lifetime of sobriety and wellness.
If you are ready to take the first step in your recovery, call us on 01603 513 091.
The First Step to Recovery
The first step to recovery is accepting that you have an addiction problem.
You acknowledge that drugs or alcohol have disrupted your life.
Addiction may have caused you to lose your job, quit school, lose your family and friends, or failing to do your responsibilities in life.
Once you recognise that drugs and alcohol have destroyed your life, you must now decide to change.
The decision to addictive disorder treatment requires commitment.
This is a lifetime commitment, which can be tough.
Treatment plans are customised based on the type of addiction, co-occurring disorder, length and severity of use, and personal strengths and circumstances (i.e. gender).
Common approaches to treatment involve a combination of detox, medication, psychological counselling, self-help groups, and holistic alternative therapies.
The treatment plans are comprehensive to provide healing of your mental, physical, social, psychological, and spiritual being.
There are instances when the treatment plans will be modified to your changing needs (e.g. frequent relapse).
To begin your journey, call Abbeycare at 01603 513 091 and we will take things to step by step to recovery.
What counts as a Relapse?
Relapse is one of the things that people in recovery fear.
It is often equated as a failure to sobriety or recovery.
But what exactly is a relapse that some people make a big fuss about?
In general, relapse pertains to the use of drugs or alcohol after recovering from addiction.
Just one drink or use of drugs may not be considered a relapse if it causes you to quickly regret the act.
In which case, the slip helped strengthen your commitment to recovery.
What really counts as a relapse is when you return to the regular use of drugs or alcohol.
This can start from one drink or use of drugs that spirals out of control and leading you back to square one.
This is why a small slip or relapse remains incredibly risky.
It can awaken your compulsion and drag you back to addiction.
Relapse, however, should not be considered a failure nor should it lead to hopelessness.
Instead, it should be viewed in the recovery context as part of the journey.
Call Abbeycare now on 01603 513 091 and we will help you keep your balance to keep you moving in your recovery.
Rehab clinics offer different types of alternative therapies designed to promote healing through creativity.
Some offer art therapy like painting, photography, and other forms of art which can serve as a channel for self-expression that eases the tension and stress caused by substance abuse.
Journaling is also a popular activity therapy adopted by many rehab centres.
Journaling helps people in recovery to reflect on their thoughts helping them to understand and process their experiences and emotions deeper.
Music therapy is another popular activity for people with addiction.
Music has a way to relax and penetrate the soul to relieve you from stress and other emotions.
Yoga Therapy is also a common activity therapy in rehab centres too.
Yoga involves movement and physical postures to relieve stress from the mind-and-body.
It is often integrated with mindfulness and meditation for self-reflection.
Pet Therapy is a type of animal-assisted therapy in which healing to improve motor skills, independence, sense of responsibility, self-esteem, communication, and social skills and interactions with people is facilitated with the use and company of a pet.

- Can I bring my car in rehab?
No. If you are entering treatment, we assume that your dependency on alcohol or drugs may impair your driving skills.
Instead, we would advise a family or friend to drive you to our clinic.
If you brought your car with you, you will be asked to surrender car keys upon admission for safekeeping.
You will not be allowed to use your car while undergoing treatment.
- Will I see the doctor before admission?
Our addiction specialists will perform a comprehensive medical assessment before your admission.
This is essentially used to rule out applicants that need hospitalisation instead of rehabilitation.
If you are found to have health conditions (e.g. liver problems) that require medical attention, you will not be admitted for rehab but will be referred to the hospital for proper medical treatment.
- Are families included in the treatment process?
Yes. Abbeycare keenly encourages families or next of kin to be involved in every step of the rehab process.
Our rehab programme incorporates activities that involve family participation.
Your family may be invited for therapies, group activities, and visitation.
