What we offer at Ocean Recovery Centre
We offer you a fully bespoke drug rehab treatment plan. When you decide to join Ocean Recovery Centre, a consultant psychiatrist will carry out a full examination, psychological and physical. During this examination, you can explain the nature and severity of your drug addiction and the history associated with it. Any other substance misuse, whether that be alcohol or other drugs, must be disclosed.
The rehab treatment we provide consists of a holistic-based approach with aims at healing the body and soul of an individual through the use of therapy sessions and counselling. But before you move onto therapy and counselling you will have to go through a successful detox which aims at flushing out all harmful toxins from your system and making you fully ‘clean’ from whatever substance you have been using.
During your detoxification process, you may experience withdrawal symptoms which can vary depending on the type of drug you’re addicted to and the actual severity of your addiction. Prescription medication is available to help ease the symptoms and our team of health professionals are available 24/7 to provide the help and support needed throughout the process.
The 12 step programme created by alcoholics anonymous is usually a common treatment method for alcohol rehab programmes but it can also be very effective for those suffering from a drug addiction as well. The 12 step plan is a treatment method used by most rehab clinics but at Ocean Recovery we have created a personalised version of the plan with input from recovered alcoholics and drug users who have used the programme to achieve long term recovery and it’s completely optional to include it in your rehabilitation plan.

A medicated drug detox regime
For most instances of drug abuse, a medically assisted drug rehab and drug detox programme is required. Detox requires you to flush all toxins from your body.
Ocean Recovery Centre offers a medicated detox regime which means you will be offered medication that will ease any withdrawal symptoms during the drug detox.
After completing your drug detox programme, we would move on to a full rehabilitation programme. This will typically take place at the same treatment clinic where you undertook your detox programme. We often elect to work with you in order to understand your drug habit and urges better.
This is done through CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. It allows you to change your way of thinking, back to the way it was before drug addiction hijacked the decision making skill in your brain.

Links between mental health and addiction
Having an addiction can be directly linked to a mental illness you may be experiencing, this can be down to a number of reasons such as your addiction to certain substances is a way of self-medicating by using the drugs to deal with the symptoms of the illness, this is subsequently how dependency is developed.
The diagnosis for individuals using drugs as well as having a mental illness is called ‘dual diagnosis’ or ‘co-occurring diagnosis’ by health professionals and requires urgent attention. We are able to provide treatment of co-occurring disorders with the use of effective therapy and counselling which is focused on helping you take control of your mind to stop your addictive behaviours.
Drug Rehab FAQ
There are a few indicators that could show you that your loved one could be suffering from a drug addiction, but there is often no way to talk to them about it – as drug addicts tend to keep their addiction quiet. This is often due to feelings of shame, as there is still a stigma surrounding drug addiction worldwide. It is often seen as a weakness – but nothing is further from the truth. Drug addiction is a disease that is often too hard too battle on your own.
Many people with an addiction often do not believe that they are addicted to anything. It is important to acknowledge your addiction before it causes serious health problems and realising that you might have an addiction is already the first step towards finding out if you are addicted.
The therapy sessions you will take part in includes cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), one-to-one therapy sessions, group therapy and holistic therapy, you will also take part in support group sessions where you can talk openly about your addiction to other people who are going through the same experience. During your therapy sessions, you will be taught the different coping mechanisms you can use to stop yourself whenever you are feeling the need to relapse and start using again.
