If you or a loved one are considering getting professional help in dealing with drug or alcohol abuse, or any other of a wide range of destructive and addictive behaviours, getting help from trained medical and psychiatric personnel can mean the end to a chronic, progressive, relapsing, and potentially fatal illness. With over 20 years of experience in dealing with addiction, Gladstones Clinic has helped numerous people from Cornwall County and the south overcome their addictions and start rebuilding their lives in our clinics.
Our fully residential facilities offer professional, medical- and evidence-based therapies with intensive, focused, and individualised care. The Gladstones process makes use of a broad spectrum, integrative, and non-12-step approach that has proven itself to be highly effective at successful long-term rehabilitation.
Unlike other multi-purpose medical facilities, our small-group rehab clinics offer private rooms in a residential setting with limited spaces, allowing you to focus on the healing process in a calming and restful environment.
If you or someone you care about is struggling with addiction, contact Gladstones today to find out how we can help you overcome harmful patterns of behaviour and get you back on track towards a happy, healthy, and productive life.
Gladstones Clinics offers a variety of services aimed at helping individuals recover from substance addiction and other addictive behaviours. To learn more about any of our medically supervised detoxification, rehabilitation, recovery, and support programmes, click the links below.
Our treatment philosophy is based on an abstinence, integrative, and holistic addiction rehabilitation approach. This means that we’ve combined evidence-backed medical and psychiatric therapies, modern counselling techniques, and proven alternative therapies such as meditation, yoga, and reflexology into the Gladstones approach. We’ve been honing and refining our methods for more than 20 years, and in the process, we’ve helped thousands of people from all walks of life overcome their addictions.
We recognise that addiction of any kind is a complex and multifaceted phenomenon. As such, we’ve moved away from the ‘chemical hook’ addiction model that often standardised treatment to the ‘disconnection treatment’ model. In layman’s terms, this means that we take the time to investigate each client’s root cause of addiction before designing an appropriate and effective strategy, as opposed to resorting to a one-size-fits-all solution. Typical treatments could include a combination of Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioural Therapies (CBT & DBT Therapy), group and one-on-one counselling, and transactional analysis, all depending on the client’s individual needs and addiction profile.
Our primary care drug and alcohol detox and rehabilitation services are provided in a private-room fully-residential facility under trained medical supervision. Our highly-trained and experienced multi-disciplinary staff are on hand around the clock to provide both medical intervention and counselling whenever needed. Our clinics provide everything you need to make your stay as comfortable and productive as possible without external distraction or interruption. Limited admission space means that each client gets focused, individualised care and attention.
Our staff understands the pains and challenges of detox and substance addiction and is compassionate, kind, and encouraging. Many of our staff have gone through rehabilitation programs themselves –some through Gladstones– and have now reached senior positions with us. This level of detailed and personal service from people who understand addiction from firsthand experience make successfully completing detox and rehab much easier and more comfortable.
At Gladstones, you aren’t simply forgotten when you leave our clinic after rehab. We understand that complete drug or alcohol rehab is a process that can take months or even years, and we’ll walk with you every step of the way. After completing the primary care phase of rehab, all former clients are automatically entered into our lifelong aftercare services programme. This is just another way that we show how much we’re committed to your long-term, successful recovery.
We regularly meet with former clients who wish to stay in touch with our wonderful staff and other clients they meet at Gladstones, whether it’s just for a friendly check-in, or if they are feeling vulnerable and at risk of falling back into destructive behaviours. You can expect a lifelong commitment of understanding, compassion, and advice as we walk the road to a full recovery with you, regardless of how long it takes.
This lifelong commitment to our clients’ well-being is just another way of showing how committed we are to making permanent changes for the better.
When a family member is struggling with substance abuse, it’s an unfortunate reality that the rest of the family suffers along with them. Whether this is caused by feelings of helplessness, neglect, or financial harm, families suffer as a whole when a member falls victim to substance abuse.
Gladstones Clinic has helped hundreds of British families from all walks of life come to terms with addiction, understand how it works and how they can create more nurturing and compassionate environments, and how to discover and make use of coping mechanisms. Through this, we help these families restore broken trust, heal, and move forward together.
When someone in the family is undergoing treatment for drug or alcohol abuse, we encourage the entire family to be a part of the rehabilitation process. Families that participate in our Family Workshops and Wellness Programmes come out better equipped to deal with addiction. They understand the causes to a greater extent and understand what they can do to be supportive and nurturing, while at the same time receiving support themselves. These families have a much greater chance of helping their loved ones achieve long-term success on their road to recovery.
Many people in the clutches of drug or alcohol abuse find it difficult to acknowledge the damage that they are causing themselves and their loved ones. In these cases, many families resort to interventions as a method to get the individual substance user to first admit the damage that they are causing to themselves or their families, and then seek professional advice and help.
Gladstones Clinic offers specialist intervention services to help families plan and execute successful interventions. There are many pitfalls that could cause an intervention to go poorly, and our trained and experienced intervention specialists can offer expert advice and guidance on how to avoid them.
Contact Gladstones today at 0808 258 2350 for professional and experienced assistance in making this very important step towards rehab work for your family.
When it comes to addiction rehabilitation, the experts know that a combination of experience, methodology, and understanding of the root causes of addiction are all important tools. However, the rehab process, particularly the often-painful detox phase, can be incredibly challenging, uncomfortable, and painful. That’s why it’s essential to go through it in a calm, supportive, and stress-free environment. At Gladstones Clinic, we understand the importance of creating the ideal setting for rehabilitation, and we have taken every step to ensure that our clients get the most out of their stay with us.
Our residential care facilities, located in Bristol, the Cotswolds, and London, are designed to provide a comfortable and productive stay. We deliberately keep our facilities small to create a more intimate and private atmosphere, where you can focus on your recovery without feeling overwhelmed by a large number of people. Our aim is to provide a relaxing environment where you can feel supported throughout your journey to recovery. Many of our clients leave with lasting friendships and support networks that help them through the challenges of recovery.
While it’s important that our clients stay within the facility during the first few weeks of therapy and detox, we understand the need for occasional supervised trips to nearby parks or other recreational areas to get some sun and fresh air. We also welcome visiting family members and supportive friends on Sundays.
We believe that good nutrition is essential to the recovery process, and we have full-time professional chefs on staff who prepare nutritious, delicious, and varied meals. Nutritional deficiencies can lead to unwanted psychological effects and cravings, so our chefs are skilled at catering to different dietary needs and preferences, regardless of cultural or background differences. We provide 100% home-cooked meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as fruit, snacks, drinks, and other refreshments throughout the day.
Feel free to reach out to us if you require additional details about addiction, rehab, the Gladstones Process, our facilities, or any other inquiries. You can contact us through our portal or by calling 0808 258 2350.
With a highly skilled team and full confidence in our procedures, we’re certain that we’re the best choice to help you or a loved one take control and start walking the road to recovery with all the support and motivation you need.
