This Clinic specialises in treating patients with a wide range of mental health issues including addictions. The hospital has an excellent reputation for its range of services and standards of psychiatric and psychological care in the areas of addictions, general psychiatry and maternal mental health.
The goal of treatment is to facilitate long-term recovery through abstinence, restoring psychological and physical wellbeing as quickly as possible; thus helping patients to regain control of their lives. All patients are admitted under the care of a consultant psychiatrist and have a named primary nurse who co-ordinates their programme.
Treatment plans are tailored to the specific needs of the individual by a highly experienced multi-disciplinary team of Consultant Psychiatrists, Therapists and clinical staff. The addiction treatment programme is delivered using a 12 step abstinence-based therapeutic model.
The general therapy programme is ideal for those seeking freedom from depression, anxiety, intrusive and obsessive thoughts and stress. It uses cognitive behavioural techniques delivered during individual one-to-one sessions or in a group setting.
The programme is suitable for all addictions including:
• Alcohol addiction
• Drug addiction and substance misuse
• Gambling addiction
• Shopping addiction
• Bulimia Nervosa
• Sex addiction
• Internet addiction
Our expertise in treating dual-diagnosis patients is unmatched by other service providers. Conditions frequently treated include depression, anxiety, PTSD and trauma, or other illness that comes in addition to a primary addiction.
The addiction treatment programme provides a year’s 28-day in-patient stay. The hospital also offers a free and comprehensive 10-week family programme to family members of the person in treatment.
The family programme offers family members the opportunity to gain support and insight into recovery from addiction, focusing on key aspects of addiction such as co-dependency, the symptoms and phases of addiction and healthy detachment. Seven-day inpatient detoxification or a special 14- day inpatient detox can also be arranged on request.
The Clinic offers a comprehensive Addiction Treatment Programme including:
Each day is designed to keep you engaged in the recovery process and make full use of your time. You may be accompanied by one of the team on a brisk morning walk following a healthy breakfast, before early morning meditation prior to your first group therapy session.
After lunch, you may have one-to-one counselling, yoga, equine psychotherapy or group work. All clients are encouraged to attend local Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, Narcotics Anonymous or similar, for three evenings a week.
You will be driven to meetings by the Clinic support staff in order to initiate the habit of attending regular meetings on completion of the treatment programme.
The hospital has a calm, homely atmosphere offering patients hope, healing and sanctuary in a discrete residential building just 5 minutes from the sea.
Patients enjoy the privacy of their own room with television, telephone and en-suite facilities and are encouraged to have their meals in the main dining room, which caters for special dietary requirements.
The hospital has residential facilities for 19 patients aged 16 years and over. Many rooms have an inspiring view of the sea. The service provides an excellent opportunity to begin your recovery by the sea.
The hospital has a number of consulting rooms, group rooms and activity rooms that have been designed for maximum comfort and well-being. A range of complementary therapies is also provided including art therapy, yoga and relaxation.
The clinic strives to support families and offer family group meetings with a counsellor every Sunday afternoon (contact is only made with family members or partners when clients have given permission).
Family workshops are available throughout the year to assist loved ones with the impact of addiction and help them understand the nature of the disease, whilst allowing them to explore their own feelings and experiences focusing directly on them and not their loved one.
