I’m a Celebrity…..Get me in Somewhere!

Jan 13, 2015 By Paul Spanjar 0 comments

To many people the most surprising news item just before Christmas 2014 was the story that Pete Doherty had successfully completed a spell in rehab and was now clean. Doherty was known to his fans as a talented songwriter and musician with two successful bands, The Libertines and Babyshambles, but to a larger number of people Doherty was a drug addict who was in and out of prison leading a chaotic life and wasting his talent. We don’t claim to be music critics but we can only applaud anyone who manages to find recovery from the horror of addiction via our drug rehab that caters for celebrities and hope that the recovery is lasting.

Addiction to drugs and alcohol is an illness that can affect people of all ages and backgrounds and money and fame are no defence. Many famous people from the world of music reached a point in their life when the problem had reached the stage when only a spell in treatment centre could help. Both Elton John and Robbie Williams openly admit that their lives were changed by attending a rehab and accepting the help that was available and an important aspect of that help was that it was the same that was available to anyone who had treatment.

At the Providence Project we have treated a number of famous people and in many of those cases we must respect their anonymity, but among those who have gone public with their stay with us are Norman Cook, better known as Fatboy Slim, and Matt Willis now of McBusted. Both of them were treated exactly the same as all of the other people they were in treatment with and both have remained clean and sober ever since. It is precisely because the disease of addiction makes no distinction as to who it attacks so we make no difference to the nature of the treatment we deliver. Of course we tailor that treatment where required to cater for specific individual needs but the celebrity alcohol rehab is for just another alcoholic or celebrity drug rehab is for just another addict, in the eyes of all the people they are in treatment with.

Not everyone that enters treatment completes the programme and among those that do, some will relapse. We are now in our eighteenth year of providing treatment to people from all walks of life and that experience enables us to give the best possible chance of success. You don’t have to be famous to ask for our help; if you think you have a problem with drugs or alcohol, or if you think you know someone with a problem you can call us 24 hours a day. All calls are answered by a member of our professional, highly qualified counselling term and are treated in complete confidence.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
