Getting Help for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Essex

If you or someone you love are struggling with drug addiction or alcohol addiction in Essex, our team of specialists are here to walk you through the necessary steps into recovery.

Addiction is a complex disease and effective treatment requires a rehab programme that works to address the underlying causes of drug and alcohol addiction, such as trauma, PTSD, grief or co-occurring disorders such as depression, while simultaneously helping individuals to overcome their physical dependence on drugs or alcohol.

For over 26 years the Providence Projects have been successfully treating thousands of individuals and their families from Essex, helping them heal collectively from the pain of drug and alcohol addiction. Many of whom arrived here from Essex and had either attempted rehab previously and relapsed, or needed an effective first-time treatment.

Sober Transportation from Essex to The Providence Projects

To ensure our clients from Essex arrive safely to begin treatment, as well as to assist families that are concerned about their loved one arriving at our centre from Essex, we can provide a sober Transportation service that involves being collected by a person in recovery and bringing you to our treatment clinic.

Upon successfully completing our drug or alcohol rehab programme, you or a loved one will return home to Essex to begin a life free from drug and alcohol dependence with additional support from our team.

Arriving for Treatment from Essex

Your stay with us will start with a warm welcome from our counselling team. As you are guided through the induction to our centre, our team will introduce you to the other residents and show you to your private room.

Before treatment begins, our medical team will discuss the options available to you for treatment and design a treatment programme around you as an individual. They will discuss your goals during rehab and familiarise you with the programme.

A medical assessment will need to be carried out by our in-house GP, to check your general health, discuss any medications that are currently prescribed and assess your drug or alcohol dependence. Our GP may provide detox medication to help reduce difficult withdrawal symptoms that may arise, this is known as a medically-assisted detox programme.

Some clients require a medically-assisted drug or alcohol detox before rehab therapy can begin. Detox can feel uncomfortable, but our team of medical professionals will ensure that you or your loved one are kept safe during the detox phase. All detox programmes provided at The Providence Projects, are managed by highly skilled healthcare professionals and support staff to ensure safety.
