Recovering from a serious drug or alcohol addiction can be the most difficult thing that a person accomplishes in his or her life. Patients at Harley St Organisation are given the best possible chance of a full, long-lasting recovery through personally tailored drug and alcohol rehab programmes delivered in a serenely beautiful, supportive environment. Immediate admission is available for all patients who require speedy treatment.
Here are some of the components of a typical rehabilitation programme:
1) Detoxification: The first stage in any alcohol or drug rehab programme is to cleanse the patient’s body of the substance to which they are addicted. This can be an extremely difficult part of the treatment and Harley St Organisation seeks to help by encouraging a healthy diet and engagement in physical activities.
Activity helps to improve the mood of patients and promotes the establishment of a normal sleeping pattern. Our staff are carefully selected for their ability to empathise with patients and help support their progress. A nurse will be available 24 hours a day.
2) Personalised treatment: Removing the alcohol, prescription or street drug from a patient’s system is only the beginning of the recovery process. The underlying reasons for addiction will still remain.
At Harley St Organisation, we seek to thoroughly understand the mental and physical issues that lie behind the behaviour of our patients. This helps us to deliver a selection of therapies that are tailored to help with the issues that are present.
As part of this assessment, we perform physical examinations to eliminate the possibility of misdiagnosed thyroid conditions or other physical ailments being at the root of problem behaviour.
3) Integrated therapies: The range of therapies available at Harley St Organisation is comprehensive. Therapies focus on every aspect of a patient’s well-being.
Our trained psychologists will help to deliver the support that is needed to deal with triggers that could lead to a return to drug or alcohol use. They can also help patients to replace negative thoughts with positive ones and improve their decision making.
Patients will be taught how to eat healthily by nutritional experts. We also have a state of the art sleep lab that supports patients in identifying issues that could prevent them from getting a good night’s sleep. Being properly rested is of key importance in being able to take decisions and avoid relapses.
One of our most popular and successful therapies is delivered with the help of our resident elephant, Toba. Elephants instinctively respond to the emotions and reactions of humans that they meet. They do this without expressing judgement, which can make time spent with an elephant a healing experience that helps patients to regain a sense that they can be a positive influence on those around them.
In addition to these therapies, we provide yoga classes, acupuncture and massage to help patients to relax and build a sense of health and well-being. Sound therapy is another component in promoting relaxation and reducing stress.
The precise mixture of therapies that a patient receives will be carefully chosen in order to help deal with the issues that come up during the personal assessment.
4) Kindness: Perhaps the most important aspect of our programmes is that every patient will be supported emotionally and treated with kindness by our highly trained staff.

Absolutely yes, so many people are not even aware they have a mental health problem and many people don’t make the connection in children and mental health. The alcohol can become a ‘solution’ for a persons mental health. At the start it will seem as if the alcohol is quieting the mind, but in time as the addiction progresses it will only add to any mental health problems the person has. It is also difficult to diagnose a person with mental health while under the influence of alcohol.
As well as being directly related to many serious diseases, drinking large amounts of alcohol can also lead to poor sexual performance, and it can harm an unborn baby. If you have an alcohol related problem, there are many ways in which you can get help to reduce your drinking, and there are also many services that you can use that will help you stop altogether. Definition The problems associated with alcoholism, or alcohol dependence, are wide ranging, and can be physical, psychological, and social.
There is no definitive cure for addiction. However, rehab can provide patients with the skills needed to successfully manage their addiction and remain sober. Recovery from addiction is never over and patients will need to work on their ability to avoid relapse for the rest of their lives. A high quality addiction rehab programme sets patients up for this process.
Most people can enjoy a casual night out with friends, have one or two drinks and then stop, and they might not drink again for several days. They enjoy a drink, but they don’t NEED it.
