About drug addiction


Drug addiction can be very damaging to an individual’s overall health and wellbeing. Depending on what type of drug is consumed, the severity of side effects can vary. However, the damage can be caused from a wide spectrum of substances, from prescribed to class A.

If consumed long-term, the danger and side effects, including deterioration of health, homelessness, the inability to live a quality life, and even death in some unfortunate cases, is a greater risk.

Fortunately, addiction can be treated, and the above negative effects can be overcome if completed with expert support. Here at Asana Lodge, we understand how difficult this time of your life can be. We offer tailored drug rehab programs to accommodate your needs, giving you the best possible chance of recovery. Reach out to our friendly team today.

What is drug rehabilitation?

Drug rehab is the treatment process of overcoming an addiction to a drug substance under the professional care and guidance of trained medical professionals. Often drug rehab is carried out within an inpatient setting where the individual undergoes physical drug detox and psychological therapy treatment to help to overcome their addiction.

We understand that the idea of rehab can be daunting, and knowing whether it is the right thing for you to start your recovery journey can be a difficult decision. If you need help deciding whether residential rehab is right for you, watch our short video to hear from members of our team.

Why Choose Asana Lodge

If you’ve been living with long-term drug addiction, we are sure you have come across residential addiction treatment clinics. However, Asana Lodge is different.

Everything about your care within our facility is personalised to you. From the therapists, you work with the meals prepared by the in-house chef.

That’s because we don’t just treat the addiction. We treat the whole person, mind and body. Only through reviewing every aspect of your health and wellbeing can you ensure a long-term recovery.

Asana Lodge is nestled in the countryside so there is space to reflect and reset, away from the troubles of outside life. Each client has their own luxury private room with ensuite bathroom, to provide the opportunity to truly relax.

Communal areas and group activities allow clients to connect through a shared understanding. Formal and informal time with our team of professionals makes everyone accessible and breaks down boundaries.

Industry Leading Drug Addiction Treatment

In order to increase recovery probability, here at Asana Lodge, we believe in personalisation. We understand how addiction affects every individual differently.

We further understand how addiction recovery journeys differ depending on a variety of factors. With that said, we take these factors into consideration by designing a tailored treatment programme.

Throughout your addiction treatment process, you will have full input, ensuring you are comfortable with the recommended route. We will take your long-term goals into consideration, along with your previous addiction history to ensure suitability is maintained.

Within your personalised treatment plan, you should expect to see a wide variety of recommended methods, helping to heal you holistically. Residential addiction treatment will work on your psychological and physical fixation to drugs, ensuring you are fully treated for a drug-free future.

Our inpatient evidence-based addiction treatment options include cognitive behavioural therapy, individual and group therapy sessions, medical detoxes, physical activity and relapse prevention classes.

Each is designed to work together to strengthen your long-term recovery likelihood. You will be armed with tools and techniques to combat your tie to harmful substances and lead a future overcoming any relapses.

It is important to remember that without expert addiction treatment, long-term recovery is highly improbable. Attempting to complete a period of cold turkey alone has the potential to lead to greater consumption. Ensure you seek support through a structured, high-quality addiction programme today.

Once you’ve completed treatment and leave our residential centre, free 12-months aftercare will be offered to all of our clients. Here at Asana Lodge, we are passionate about promoting long-term health and recovery. With this in mind, we ensure our clients receive ongoing support, compassion and guidance, along with future required treatment.

Consistent support group sessions, counselling and aftercare services will be recommended to create a positive transition back into reality. To discuss how we can support you or a loved one post-rehab, get in touch with our experienced admissions team today.
