Drug addiction rehab in Southampton
A drug addiction is a type of addiction that is characterised by repeatedly administering or taking drugs, whether these are illegal substances such as heroin, cocaine or methamphetamine, or legal prescription drugs. Addictions to illegal drugs usually develop as a result of peer pressure or curiosity and what can initially be thought of as a ’one-off’, can soon become a serious, long-term problem. People often fall into the destructive habit of prescription drug abuse after being prescribed the drug for a legitimate medical reason, such as pain relief following an operation or injury, before developing an addiction to the substance or using it recreationally.
Regardless of the type of substance that you have become addicted to, continued drug use can have a hugely detrimental impact on all areas of your life, affecting you mentally, socially, emotionally and physically.However, it’s important to understand that drug addictions are entirely treatable and it’s possible for you to make a full and sustainable recovery from these devastating conditions.
The most crucial step in your treatment and recovery journey is to seek specialist support. Our highly qualified team at Manor Clinic in Hampshire, consisting of expert psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, nurses and other addiction professionals, are dedicated to helping you every step of the way towards achieving sobriety and wellbeing. We provide specialist care and place you at the centre of your drug addiction rehab journey. This means that you are empowered to achieve the most positive post-treatment outcomes for you as an individual.
Taking the first step towards treatment for a drug addiction
At Manor Clinic, we recognise that it can be difficult to take the first step towards recovery from an addiction. Our free, no obligation addiction assessment allows you to discuss your unique concerns with one of our specialists in a confidential and non-judgemental environment. This initial assessment will begin to help you to identify the underlying causes of your addiction, and is the first step towards developing your addiction treatment journey.
Once you commence with drug addiction treatment at Manor Clinic, the first step will usually be for you to undergo a medically assisted withdrawal detoxification (detox) programme. The purpose of drug detox is to remove all traces of harmful substances from your body in a carefully controlled environment, whilst helping you to manage the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that you may experience. During this process, you will gradually become physically stable, which will allow you to progress to our intensive therapeutic programme where the underlying psychological elements of your drug addiction can be addressed. Following successful detox, private drug addiction treatment at Manor Clinic consists of daily group therapy and a variety of evidence-based treatment approaches. All treatment programmes are designed to help you to achieve your own personal goals and take steps towards the healthy, fulfilling and drug-free life that you deserve.

If it is left untreated, drug addiction can cause a broad range of severe physical and psychological problems, and can even be fatal. In addition, without expert, timely support, your drug addiction may lead you to develop an addiction to other harmful substances, including alcohol, or lead you to engage in compulsive behaviours such as gambling. That’s why it’s absolutely crucial that you seek treatment as soon as possible, in order to overcome your addiction and regain control of your life.
