Finding addiction help for a loved one

Addiction disorder can have a devastating impact on the friends and family of the person suffering, but we’re here to step in and help as an additional member of that person’s support network.

What is the treatment process?

East Coast Recovery Therapist Assessment


Our addiction treatment specialists are uniquely positioned to help your loved one who is suffering to face the realities of their disorder and make positive change. Contact us for a completely confidential discussion, where we can determine exactly what level of intervention is required, after which we can assess the client and collaborate on the right recovery plan for them.


Clients can be shown around our facilities in advance, with family members, to put any anxieties, for all involved, to rest. Then, when an admission date is set, they will be warmly welcomed to the centre. In our experience, within 24-48 hours, clients already feel at home and know that they’re in the right place. Your loved one is in safe hands.

East Coast Recovery Key Works Assignments

Key worker assignment

At no point will your loved one feel lost or alone without family or friends nearby. On admission to our centre, they will be assigned a one-to-one key worker to support them during every step of the recovery process. That person will remain with them for the duration of their stay, liaising between the client and our support and therapy teams, to ensure all their needs are met.

Therapy walking in the sand


The actual therapy involves a combination of 12-step work, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), neuroscience, and neuro-linguistics programming (NLP). The exact mixture of therapies will depend on your loved one’s needs, and it can be very intensive, so our treatment also involves entertainment, exercise, relaxation, meditation, and enjoying the Suffolk coastline.

East Coast Recovery Transition Tunnel

Transitioning to normal life

We completely understand how stressful and upsetting returning to normal life can be – for the client and their loved ones – so rest assured we will stay in touch and ensure that nobody is facing this adjustment alone. This includes making sure your loved one is signposted to community networks that can support them as their recovery continues, and take some of the pressure off family and friends.

Jo's Addiction StoryEast Coast Recovery

The support from staff and peers was a vital help.

Jo’s addiction story

I came to ECR coming off methadone and heroin. I had a lot of fears coming into treatment, and the fear of detoxing was one of them, my past experiences with detoxes had been a failure. Generally, my detox at ECR went smoothly, only slight levels of discomfort in my head. I had believed it was going to be hellish. How wrong I was! The support from staff and peers was a vital help as most had been through drug withdrawals and their loving support gave me strength. With ECR’s help, I became free of substances for the first time in a very long time, and continue to remain so.
