Gladstones Clinic has launched it’s newest Drug and Alcohol Rehab Clinic in Notting Hill, London. Located in a Victorian townhouse on St Charles Square, the clinic is a fully residential 8 bed detox and primary care facility. Specializing in drug and alcohol detox and rehab, the clinic also treats addictions to gambling and sex, as well as eating disorders.
The treatments and services offered to all clients follow the Gladstones Clinic model and philosophy in every detail. By combining traditional medical, psychiatric and counselling techniques with the latest alternative remedies and therapies, the London Clinic is able to deliver a uniquely effective Recovery Programme to all clients.
What To Expect
Gladstones Clinic has a fully abstinence-based treatment policy. Upon admission, clients will undergo a medically supervised alcohol or drug detox programme that usually lasts two weeks. During this period a short course of doctor prescribed medication may be administered to take the edge off of the worst of the withdrawal symptoms. Successful completion of detox is necessary before the Primary Care stage of Recovery treatment can begin.
The Primary Care phase of treatment lasts for four weeks. During this stage clients are exposed to a range of group and one-to-one counselling, cognitive and dialectical behaviour therapies, creative psychodrama, transactional analysis and alternative therapies like meditation and acupuncture. This unique combination of therapies is aimed at getting to the root of the addiction and healing it at the base level. Coping mechanisms and effective strategies for maintaining long-term sobriety are essential to any lasting recovery back in the real world. Clients leave Gladstones Clinic London armed with the knowledge and skills necessary to face life’s challenges without reverting back to old, damaging habits.
Should clients wish to continue their association with Gladstones after successfully completing Primary Care, Our Bristol Clinic offers a range of Secondary, aftercare and half-way services. Additionally, all clients who complete the Primary Programme are offered free Saturday morning group aftercare meetings for life.
