Ocean Recovery is a rehabilitation centre based in Blackpool, in the North West of England. Our treatment approach to drug, alcohol and behavioural addiction is based on abstinence. Each and every one of our patients receives a fully personalised addiction treatment plan when attending our residential rehabilitation centre. However our treatment methodology does abide by some guiding principles which are pervasive for all treatment plans we offer. For instance we adhere to the 12 Step approach to abstinence and enforce a strict regime of detoxification for every patient entering our centre.

Our approach to addiction treatment

Following initial detoxification our patients receive counselling and therapy sessions which aim to treat the psychological component of addiction. We employ a team of psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists who administer therapy and counselling sessions. Therapy ensures patients come to terms with the damage addiction inflicts on personal health as well as on professional and social life.

The majority of our therapies revolve around ‘talking therapies’. Typically this will involve our patients discussing and discovering the reasons which give rise to the addictive behaviour. Wider problems will be discussed and neutralised. Our patients are encouraged to make positive lifestyle changes essential for long term recovery and in avoiding triggers which give rise to addictive behaviours.

  • Standard detoxification

Addiction treatments goals

Our treatment models are designed to prevent patients from relapsing back into addiction upon leaving our centre. Unhealthy psychological states which allow addictions to thrive are cut off at their core and replaced with positive coping strategies which aid long-term recovery. Our therapy sessions are intense and conducted to ensure learning has taken place. Staff and patients often describe our therapy as ‘mental healing’ and therapy proper takes place once initial detoxification has successfully been tackled.

Post rehabilitation treatment

Treatment also extends beyond the duration of residential rehabilitation in the form of after-care and extended care. After-care and relapse prevention go some way to ensuring recovery is lasting. Patient receive a tailored relapse prevention plan and will be assigned to a relapse support team. This resource becomes particularly useful if patients relapses or come close to relapse upon leaving our centre. We also encourage our patients to work with local Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous groups once residential rehabilitation has concluded.
