The Benefits of Our Residential Programme
Higher Rehab Success Rates
Many addiction specialists believe that inpatient rehabilitation programmes offer a higher success rate for the patient’s’ physical and psychological recovery than outpatient clinics.
One of the main advantages of a residential environment is that the patient is removed from their local drug-associated environment. Patients are able to focus on their recovery without outside distractions, temptations and the stress of everyday life.
Cohesion of Care and Daily Routine
The therapeutic community provides strong bonds with therapists and other patients that aid recovery.
Complementary and Holistic Therapies
Recovery isn’t only about therapy and medical care. Holistic therapies such as equine therapy, drumming and art therapy help to heal the mind; fitness sessions help to build strength and increase energy naturally; a healthy diet is provided to restore nutrients.
A Retreat from Stress
A residential treatment programme is also advised when dealing with addiction in the workplace. This can reduce executive burn-out stress and prevent the impact that alcohol and drug addiction among employees has on the business, such as:
- Lower employee performance and quality of work;
- Impaired skills;
- Increased risk of accident;
- Disruptive tension among colleagues.
Integrated Detox and Addiction Therapy
A typical stay at Smarmore Clinic lasts from four to six weeks, or sometimes longer depending on each patient’s individual medical and substance misuse history, the severity of their drug and alcohol addiction and treatment needs.
And other complementary therapies, such as:

There are ways in which you can encourage someone to enter treatment, one of these ways is via an intervention with a trained interventionist, who facilitates an honest discussion between family members and the addict.
