Inpatient detoxification provides a structured and supervised approach to managing alcohol and drug withdrawal symptoms. Under the care of trained medical professionals, patients can undergo a comprehensive treatment plan that includes medical detox, therapy, and counselling.

By being away from their familiar environment and providing round-the-clock care, inpatient detox provides a safer and more supportive environment for those in recovery.

Our detox admission programme is often the first step before an intensive rehab programme. You can expect a minimum 7-night inpatient stay during your admission.

(during which you will receive round-the-clock care and support.) Our specialist nurses and therapists are experienced in supporting patients withdrawing from substances.

They will be with you 24 hours a day to provide the care and support you need to manage the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal. Our team will work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan that fits your individual needs.

We understand that withdrawal symptoms can be challenging and uncomfortable, which is why we use appropriately controlled medication to manage your symptoms and improve your comfort levels.

Our focus is not just on detoxing your body but also on preparing you for the next step on your journey to recovery.

Residential treatment

Addiction and mental health issues can be daunting, and dealing with them alone can be incredibly difficult. That’s why seeking professional residential treatment can be so important for those who are struggling with addiction and mental health disorders.

Residential treatment provides individuals with a safe environment where they can receive specialized, individualized care that addresses all aspects of their physical, mental, social, and spiritual well-being.

In a residential treatment setting, individuals reside at the clinic, providing them with 24-hour care and supervision.

This immersive environment allows for an intense focus on recovery, which can be especially beneficial during the early stages of treatment when withdrawal symptoms and cravings may be most intense.

In residential treatment, individuals have access to physical healthcare professionals who can address any co-occurring medical conditions that may be contributing to their addiction or mental health disorder.

Moreover, mental health professionals provide specialized care for all forms of addiction and mental health issues, including bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, personality disorders, and many more.

Our treatment program encompasses a holistic range of services tailored to address each individual’s unique needs. This might include individual psychotherapy, group therapy, family counselling, medication management, and life skills training.

A strong emphasis is placed on treating the whole person – not just their addiction or mental health disorder – through integrating physical health care, mental health services, and wellness activities such as yoga, meditation, and nutritional counselling.

One of the critical aspects of residential treatment is the therapeutic community. By living with others who are going through similar struggles, residents can offer each other support and understanding, fostering a sense of camaraderie and shared purpose.

This peer-to-peer interaction, coupled with professional guidance, can be a powerful catalyst for change and recovery.

Moreover, the clinic provides a safe, structured, and supportive environment, which can help residents break away from harmful patterns and triggers present in their everyday life.

This environment allows them to focus acutely on recovery, acquiring the necessary skills and strategies to manage their condition once they transition back into their regular lives.

Day therapy

Our day therapy services offer a balanced, comprehensive approach to mental health care, bridging the gap between full-time residential treatment and outpatient services.

This program, sometimes known as partial hospitalisation or day treatment, provides intensive, structured therapy while still allowing individuals to return home at the end of the day.

Day therapy operates for a set number of hours daily, often five to seven days a week, but this can be tapered down as needs require. The structured schedule generally includes a mix of individual therapy, group therapy, family counselling, and educational sessions about mental health.

This may also encompass medication management, wellness activities like art therapy or mindfulness meditation, and skill-building workshops aimed at stress management, social skills, or coping strategies.

One of the primary benefits of day therapy is the balance it strikes between intensive treatment and personal freedom.

While participants can access the same level of professional, comprehensive care as in a residential setting, they can also maintain some of their daily routines and responsibilities.

This setup allows for the real-time application of the skills and strategies learned during therapy sessions, fostering independence and self-efficacy.

Furthermore, day therapy provides a supportive community where individuals can connect with others experiencing similar challenges. This peer interaction can be a powerful source of encouragement, understanding, and mutual growth.

For many, the sense of belonging fostered in this environment can significantly contribute to their recovery journey.

In summary, day therapy provides a highly supportive and flexible approach to treatment. This program can be particularly effective for individuals seeking intensive care while wishing to stay connected with their home, work, or school environments.

It emphasises empowering individuals with the knowledge, skills, and support network necessary for a successful recovery and long-term mental health management.


Aftercare can significantly increase the chances of long-term recovery. Our The programs provide ongoing therapy and support to individuals after primary treatment with the main focus being on prevention, including developing healthy coping mechanisms and addressing any issues that may arise.

One of the most significant benefits of aftercare is that it helps individuals develop coping strategies to deal with life’s stresses and challenges.

Many people who have completed primary treatment need additional help in managing their daily activities and coping with stressful situations. Aftercare programs provide the opportunity for ongoing therapy and support to help individuals develop positive coping mechanisms that can improve their overall quality of life.

Aftercare also focuses on prevention, helping individuals to avoid future crises by maintaining their progress in the long term. The program provides ongoing education and resources to prevent relapse and maintain mental wellness.

By participating in aftercare programs, individuals can learn valuable skills to deal with negative consequences that might arise.

Ongoing therapy and support are available in aftercare programs, and these are designed to help individuals stay on track with their recovery journey.

Mental health professionals and self-help groups provide a supportive environment for individuals to discuss their thoughts and feelings while receiving constructive feedback. These resources can also serve as a social network for people in recovery, allowing them to connect and build a sense of community.

Is Cannabis a Gateway Drug?

The question of whether cannabis is a gateway drug has been a contentious issue for decades – while some argue that using cannabis leads to experimentation with other illicit substances, others contend that there is no evidence to support this claim.

What is clear is that the majority of individuals who experiment with cannabis do not go on to use other drugs. Moreover, factors such as genetics, environment, and mental health are likely to play a more substantial role in determining the likelihood of drug abuse than cannabis use itself.

It is important to acknowledge the potential risks associated with cannabis use, particularly for young people and those with a history of substance abuse.

However, it is equally important to avoid making sweeping generalisations about the nature of drug addiction and to promote evidence-based policies and interventions that address the complex factors underlying drug abuse. 

With this said, there is always a potential for an individual who is addicted to cannabis to go on and pursue other drugs however the importance should be focused on how to deal with the addiction at hand and not one that is simply a “could be” situation.

Is a treatment programme necessary?

Treatment for cannabis addiction is often required if you’re struggling to quit cannabis and have tried other methods of stopping with little or no success.

Friends or associates may also be struggling with addiction so attempts to quit cannabis around them could prove difficult, to say the least – this is why a treatment plan at a rehab centre can provide a setting to overcome their addiction away from peer pressure and environments where frequent cannabis use is prolific.

FAQ About CANNABIS Addiction


Marijuana addiction is a form of substance abuse. The person who abuses the drug feels compelled to use it and will feel withdrawal symptoms if they stop using it abruptly.


Marijuana is usually smoked in a cigarette, commonly called a joint. However, It can also be used in many other ways that are considered recreational use of the drug rather than delivery of medical marijuana. Below are the ways marijuana is used:


This is either through a rolled cigarette or using a pipe or bong where water is used as a filtration device. Blubbers or mini bongs the size of a pipe are also common. Marijuana users can get creative making bongs out of anything from soda bottles to even fruit! The smoke is carcinogenic so the effects are manyfold. Gravity, bucket, or waterfall bongs are made from plastic bottles, milk jugs, buckets, and two-liter soda bottles where gravity pulls the smoke into the chamber using water, or sometimes beer or wine.


This is a relatively new method of consuming marijuana where the device heats the marijuana to a point just below the point of combustion. The active ingredients are inhaled as a vapor excluding the carcinogenic smoke giving a stronger high, without the marijuana smell and the vaporizers are small and easy to conceal


This is similar to vaping, but it uses tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) resins in the form of oil (hash oil or honey oil), a soft solid (wax or budder), or a hard solid (shatter). A blowtorch is used to heat a glass pipe or bong creating a vapour almost immediately producing a greater high than smoking marijuana the traditional way.


Cookies or brownies that are home-baked with marijuana brownies have been around for decades, but now marijuana is being cooked in many different foods called marijuana edibles. Cakes, cookies, gummy bears, cereal, granola bars, and even chewing gum containing marijuana. Teas, sodas, and even beers are used with marijuana oil additives are also increasingly available. Because people feel that the ingestion of the substance is less harmful, the delayed onset of its effect is the frequent cause of overdose.


Infusing liquids with THC or cannabinol (CBD) to make sprays, where the users can spray under the tongue, is done to avoid the harmful effects of smoke. This method is used where marijuana is still illegal as they are difficult to detect. Some users spray differently flavored infusions on joints and blunts as a combined method of use.


Extracted from marijuana plants, these liquid tinctures are infused with alcohol or alcohol and water, and a few drops are placed under the tongue to be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream.

This form of marijuana is highly concentrated, highly potent, and fast-acting, and is typically used for medical purposes. Because of the intense high produced, it is often abused by recreational marijuana users


Topical marijuana oils are thicker than those used in edible products and are placed on the skin to relieve muscle pain and soreness by absorption. They do not produce a high and are generally used for medicinal purposes only.


The short-term effects of marijuana use include *distorted perceptions; *time distortion (a sense that time is slowing down);*disorientation and confusion.

Marijuana addiction treatment can help by providing counseling, therapy, and support groups.


Long-term use of marijuana can lead to addiction. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, about 9% of those who try it will become addicted. Marijuana is addictive because it affects the brain’s dopamine levels, which control both mood and movement.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse continues that those addicted to marijuana may be more likely to suffer from anxiety or depression as a result of using it.


Marijuana is addictive for some people. The most common addiction to marijuana is not physical, but psychological. It is the euphoric feeling of being high or “stoned” that is addictive. This high feeling can be caused by the chemicals in marijuana or it may come from a person’s expectations of what they think smoking will do to them.


Marijuana can be detected in urine, saliva, or blood. It is also possible to detect the drug through a hair follicle test. All of these tests are conducted using sophisticated equipment that can detect the presence of THC, which is what makes marijuana addictive. Some visible signs of marijuana use are weight loss, burns on the fingertips or lips, and a lack of motivation.

I will always be grateful for this life saving opportunity, which combined with the aftercare and recovery plan – is invaluable.
