What happens in rehab?

Rehab doesn’t have to be intimidating – we make recovery a positive, safe, comfortable process, in a setting that quickly becomes a second home for you.

Your therapy plan

The collaborative therapy plan we create during the assessment phase is a combination of the world’s most effective treatments, put together in a way that suits your specific needs. Every member of the ECR team is focused entirely on helping clients understand their addiction disorder, before overcoming it.

Our Therapeutic Recovery Community (TRC), created by us, exists to provide an entirely recovery-orientated, structured environment. Everything, 24 hours a day, every day of the year, is centred around client recovery. Clients are given full access to TRC group therapy sessions alongside their one-to-one support, to facilitate long-term change.

Recreational activities

Addiction disorder therapy is an intensive process that requires a lot of mental strength and bravery, which can be draining. So, to support the broader mental and physical wellbeing of our clients, we offer a range of recreational activities, taking place both inside and outside our facilities. They are designed to give clients plenty of opportunities to relax, recharge, and have fun between treatments.

Within the centre, there are movie nights, game nights, art therapy, meditation, and good old-fashioned free time. Outside of our facilities, we’re fortunate enough to boast beautiful beach walks and activities, woodland walks, bowling, cinema, wall-climbing, swimming, table tennis, squash, badminton – and more. Some local activities are not currently available due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Live in comfort

When you receive treatment at East Coast Recovery, you’re not just visiting – you live here. Our goal is to create a home-away-from-home atmosphere, where you feel safe, relaxed, and comfortable. You’ll be able to choose between a single or double room in one of our beautiful Victorian townhouses, which are just minutes away from award-winning Lowestoft beaches.

The homes have relaxing communal spaces and are fully equipped with HD TV, Sky TV, and DVD players. The cleanliness of our homes is maintained by a dedicated housekeeping team, and all meals are provided by the in-house chef. Most importantly, support staff are available 24 hours a day to support you at every stage of your recovery and ensure you feel cared for at all times.
