Primary Treatment for drug addiction

Drug Rehab Centre

Primary treatment in our drug rehab programme can cover a period of time from 4 weeks to 12 weeks. Whatever the length, each of our programmes are tailored to suit the needs of the individual and take into account, amongst other issues, the type of substance involved, the extent of the problem and the background to the problem.

We always start the process with a careful and detailed assessment of the individual concerned so we can look beyond the surface and begin to treat the underlying issues in order that we do not just help them to stop using but we help them to stay stopped. Long-term recovery is our aim with everyone we treat.

The head of our medical team, Dr. Peter Turnbull, will decide if a drug detox is required and the nature and length of that detox. Peter has been involved in the field of drug and alcohol treatment for over 20 years and has taken a particular interest in making the period of detox as comfortable as possible.

The individual is absorbed into our daily activity programme gradually during the detox period. It is hugely important for both the resident and his or her family to realise that although there are physical signs of recovery shown at this stage the real work is just beginning. Our primary treatment programme is holistically designed to deal with the underlying causes or issues which, unless addressed, will continually lead to relapse.

Structured programme

We provide a daily programme of activities delivered by a team of qualified and highly skilled drug treatment specialists. As well as group therapy and one-to-one counselling we provide family therapy, music therapy and relapse prevention.An important part of our programme are regular workshops on addiction related issues including relationships, stress or anger management, assertiveness, shame and guilt or issues of self-esteem. Our structured, timetabled activities also include a number of fun activities and the provision of complimentary therapies including acupuncture, reiki, head massage and various types of fitness classes.

The programme is structured to help the individual understand more about their drug problem, discover the root causes and develop a skillset to enable them to complete the rehab programme and cope with life without the need to resort to drugs.

We have developed our programme over 18 years and have a reputation for the high quality of our team of medical professionals, therapists and support workers who have consistently enabled us to deliver outstanding success rates during that period. That success is delivered in a safe, caring and loving environment by a staff who have an average of over 10 years service each here with us at The Providence Project.

"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..."
