UK Addiction Treatment Centres are committed to doing all they can to help those looking to recover from their addictions. Their highly trained and deeply committed staff, together with beautifully maintained rehab facilities, are a fast-growing family but, as UKAT Nurse Therapist Anita Chellamah says “As big as we get, it’s always about the individual.” And this commitment to each individual patient is not just short term, UK Addiction Treatment Centres offer lifetime support to their patients, even after they’ve moved on.

With 160 bed spaces spread across 8 UK-wide sites, UK Addiction Treatment Centres strive to provide a sanctuary space that will help each individual recover in the best environment possible. With everything from in-room TVs to en-suite bathrooms and pleasant outdoor spaces, the rehab centres at UKAT are designed to be both a refreshing break from the everyday and a comfortable home-away-from home.

With many years of experience treating a whole range of addictions (from drink and drugs through to internet and sex addiction) UK Addiction Treatment Centres have a firm belief that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all road to recovery. Every individual and addiction is unique. So each person who steps through the doors at UK Addiction Treatment Centres will receive a therapeutic approach that is tailored especially to them. Always underpinned by the 12-step philosophy, an individual may receive treatment which includes cognitive behavioural therapy, trauma therapy, person centred and motivational groups, life skills workshops and one to one therapy.

But this list is where many addiction centres would finish. UK Addiction Treatment Centres however also include both music and art therapies in the list of potential treatments for their patients. These more unusual branches of therapy can offer clients an avenue of expression that can help them communicate both their traumas and their feelings. Art therapy itself could include painting and drawing, pottery, sculpture, dance, writing and poetry.

“The benefits of art and music therapy are manifold, whether it is to enhance the effects of other treatments, or to help promote relaxation, mental calm, and introspection. That’s why we have added them into our list of therapies for troubled addicts.” Daniel Gerrard, CEO of UK Addiction Treatment Centres.
