Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Buxton
Anxiety around taking those all-important first steps and entering rehab is to be expected. Depending on how long you have been drinking or using, drugs and alcohol may have become a crutch to hold onto for you.
They may even be an escape from facing loved ones, mental health, and the general obstacles of life. Our rehab programmes in Buxton are essentially a gentle way to slowly remove that reliance on drugs and alcohol and to eventually allow you to stand on your own two feet.
Rehab is there to help y0ou find yourself again, your independence, and your freedom from the shackles of substances.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we believe that overcoming substance abuse takes a holistic approach. Our programmes bring in the elements of the body, mind, and for many a spiritual aspect too.
By combining these components together, you create a solid foundation to continue this lifelong journey of abstinence.

Treatments Available to You
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we pride ourselves on offering a range of treatments to help you unlearn the psychological aspects of addiction. It is important to note that addiction is more than just the physical aspects.
There is a deep-rooted psychological aspect embedded into it and unlearning all of that and finding new coping skills is just as important as doing the physical work.
During your initial consultation, one of our trained team members will go through the best course of treatment that will suit you the most.
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): This form of therapy is one of the more well-known treatments that investigates the thought process. By identifying any negative thought patterns, you may have, you will be able to unlearn this process and learn better and more positive thinking techniques with the help of your therapist. You will be able to use the skills learnt from CBT to quell any negative thoughts that may come up post-rehab, potentially preventing you from relapsing.
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): ACT focuses on developing psychological flexibility to overcome any difficulties. Psychological flexibility is needed when navigating a world full of drugs and alcohol. This form of therapy will inspire and motivate patients and enable them to come up with coping mechanisms during difficult situations such as cravings, disagreements or any other negative emotions that may arise.
- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): This form of therapy is similar to CBT in that it is another talking therapy. However, DBT requires a lot more group therapy. Although there are one-to-one sessions in DBT, you will also be placed into skill groups. In this setting, you will learn the relevant skills needed outside of the rehab facilities to help navigate a world full of substances and potential relapses. DBT places and emphasis on accepting your addiction and then looking at ways to change the situation. By placing emphasis on acceptance as well as change, DBT will help reduce the stigma of addiction and in turn advocate for a more rounded recovery.
The process of recovery should be a holistic one combined with the treatments that are just right for you.
Traditional therapies such as the different types of talking therapies have been used for a long time. Nowadays, many rehab programmes implement alternative forms of therapy to complement traditional treatments.
Through these treatments, patients can often pick up skills and hobbies that they can then utilise outside of the rehab programme, particularly when they have the urge to have a drink or use.
- Art Therapy: A popular choice in the treatment, art therapy allows patients to use the medium of art to express themselves. This is a great treatment for patients whose wounds may still be fresh. Without pushing them to retell a traumatic experience, patients can use different art mediums to explain those experiences. Addiction can bring a lot of shame and embarrassment it, especially when in a group setting or having to explain to your therapist. This form of therapy does not involve words and can be a great way to express feelings at that time or even how a patient is feeling now.
- Light Therapy: This form of therapy looks at treating sleeplessness that could be caused by addiction. A lack of sleep will have major detriments to your overall quality of life which will also impact the effectiveness of treatment. Using light therapy as a complementary treatment alongside others will allow patients to thrive in their other treatments during their rehab programme too. This treatment entails being surrounded by bright artificial light while awake which should then help you sleep at night.
- Acupuncture: A customary practice originating from China, acupuncture has traditionally been used to help with pain from chronic diseases. The process involves an acupuncturist inserting small needles into pressurised points of the body. This will stimulate blood flow into certain areas of the body. Acupuncture has been shown to help ease symptoms of pain and depression from people suffering from alcoholism (although research is still being done to connect stronger links).
- Yoga: Yoga is an ancient Indian practice that focuses on creating harmony between the body, mind, and soul. Substance abuse and alcohol addiction can bring a lot of chaos into someone’s life. The idea of yoga is to bring back that control and centre it within yourself. You will be able to utilise the skills that are learned from yoga such as breathing techniques, to help you in everyday life such as when cravings arise.
- Equine Therapy: This form of therapy involves a horse. You will be required to take care of the horse and build a bond. That sense of responsibility you get from looking after a horse can help you build confidence back in yourself. Once carer and horse have built mutual trust, riding can start. This is a great treatment for people who need more of outdoor space to recover from their addiction.
