What is included in your detox programme?

Introduction to neuroscience and addiction

Neuroscience shows that the brain of an addict can operate very differently from a non-addict – and that the brain can repair and develop under the right circumstances.

Introduction to cognitive behavioural therapy

CBT is the most widely-utilised orthodox therapeutic model for the treatment of addiction, and is based on the premise that a person’s thoughts directly influence their behaviour.

Introduction to
the 12 step programme

The number one recovery solution – worldwide, and in our vast experience at ECR – is the phenomenally powerful 12 step programme.

What will happen?


On admission you’ll be warmly welcomed by our team into the centre. We completely understand how intimidating this feels, but in our broad experience, once a client has been with us for 24-48 hours they already feel at home and know that they’re in the right place. This centre is here to serve you and your needs – you’re in safe hands.

Key worker assignment

To make sure that you always feel seen and supported, you will be assigned a key worker on arrival. This person will be with you for the entire duration of your treatment, assist you throughout, and check in with you on a one-to-one basis. Your key worker will liaise with our support and therapy teams to ensure your recovery needs are fully met.


During your stay with us you’ll engage in a combination of group therapies to suit your specific needs, including 12-step work, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), neuroscience, and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). The therapy itself can be intensive, so part of your treatment also involves entertaining activities, sports, relaxing, meditation, and beautiful seaside walks – all of which add to the enhancement of your wellbeing.

The support from staff and peers was a vital help.

Jo’s 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.
