Types of treatment at UKAT rehabs

This Page was last reviewed and changed on March 16th, 2022

Our specialist programmes allow you to escape external pressures, giving you the time and space to examine the self-defeating behaviours that may lie behind your addiction. When attending an addiction recovery programme at an inpatient rehabilitation centre, you can expect to receive a combination of therapies that will form your overall treatment programme. At UKAT, our programmes are based on a 12-step programme to work through a series of recovery steps. Alongside this, we have a range of holistic treatments and workshops, such as individual therapy, group therapy, meditation, and drama therapy, that you attend as a group to build trust and form a support network.

  • Individual therapy offers you a chance to communicate with a professional in private to discuss the underlying issues that may have contributed to your addiction.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a goals-oriented talking/counselling group therapy which aims to address the psychological triggers behind the compulsive behaviours which can lead to addictions.
  • Group therapy and drama therapy offer clients the chance to work collaboratively with our other clients to build confidence, identify common patterns of additive behaviours, and bond with people who are going through the same experience of rehab.

The importance of rehab treatments

When these different forms of therapy are combined, we can form a holistic addiction recovery plan. At UKAT, our goal is to provide you with the highest quality rehab treatment which addresses all areas of your life that have been affected by your addiction, helping you to:

  • Remove addictive substances from your body
    Completing an addiction detox for alcohol and substance addiction at an inpatient rehab clinic allows the addictive substance to leave your body in a setting that is designed to safeguard you from a relapse. Following an evaluation of your tolerance and the substance that you are addicted to, you will be offered a medical detox to ensure your safety when receiving your drug and alcohol detox treatment, working to manage any drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
  • Address the cause of addiction
    As mentioned previously, you will have the opportunity to participate in individual therapy. During one-on-one private conversations with a professionally trained therapist, you will have a safe space to talk about any difficulties you may have experienced in life that led you to addiction. This can play a vitally important role in your addiction recovery, as our therapists are non-judgemental, often having their own first-hand experience of addiction.
  • Learn healthy coping mechanisms
    Whilst rehab can help to transform your attitude towards addiction and encourage positive changes, it cannot change the outside world or any challenges it may present. To help you cope with life’s challenges upon leaving the drug rehab centre, your inpatient programme at a residential rehab clinic will teach you the right techniques to build your resilience to cravings and temptations during individual, group, and drama therapy sessions. Support from our aftercare services will help you to apply these tools when you return home.

The benefits of inpatient addiction treatment

Unlike outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment removes you from your home environment, where lifestyle triggers might cause a relapse in the short term. Temporarily living at an addiction rehabilitation centre for the duration of an inpatient programme permits you to learn coping mechanisms to avoid relapse before you return home, as well as build long-lasting friendships with those who understand what you’re going through.

At UKAT, we understand that returning home can often be the most challenging part of addiction recovery. Therefore, working through your newfound sobriety in a safe space with professional addiction therapists will provide you with the motivation and support that you need to achieve successful addiction recovery.

Our brand promise

If you successfully complete our 90-day inpatient treatment programme but experience a relapse within 30 days of leaving, we will welcome you back for complimentary 30 days of treatment.*
