Drug and alcohol detoxification
With a combination of compassionate care and effective treatment, we can support you to a more positive future by no longer being physically dependent on a substance.

When you undertake a detox, the focus is to improve physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing so your long-term recovery can be achieved. While detox can be challenging, our professional team are on hand 24/7 to support. They’ll manage your withdrawal symptoms and help give you confidence in taking the next step.

Our approach is very centred around the needs of each individual but typically, alcohol detoxes are 7 days and opiate detoxes are 21 days, with detoxes for other substances and respite from regular use of other non-addictive substances also being available.

Turning Point SmithfieldTo ensure that withdrawal symptoms are managed effectively, the units are staffed by mental health nurses and support workers 24 hours a day.

With symptoms being managed, a key aspect of recovery is in discovering who you are now and who you want to become. Peer mentors and volunteers ensure there are also activities aimed at creating a support network, building independence, and growing confidence for ongoing recovery.

Drug and alcohol rehabilitation
Our residential treatment programme, provided through Stanfield House in Cumbria and Leigh Bank in Oldham, offers a structured environment where you’ll learn the skills and behaviours to maintain long-term recovery from substance use. This includes access to the wrap-around support needed to get you back on your feet.

Residential rehab programmes are bespoke in terms of their specific approach to individual needs, but there is a focus on providing a supportive and therapeutic environment that encourages personal growth, self-awareness, and positive change.

Our programmes incorporate evidence-based practices such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing (MI), and typically range from 12 weeks to 6 months in length.

As community support is important in facilitating change, we create a safe environment where you can embrace support and challenge from the peer group, participate in structured daily activities, independent living and engage with the community in a substance-free setting.

Support plans are put in place for aftercare as well as care co-ordination between our services and the local community.
