At The Haven it is our philosophy that addiction is a treatable condition, addiction rehabilitation treatment programmes at the Haven, are based upon a multi model approach and are individually tailored to each individual client’s needs. Addiction rehabilitation treatment programmes are based around Minnesota twelve step system, supported by elements of cognitive behavioural therapy and positive psychology and include both group and individual counselling. We also focus on the underlying causes of the addiction, with personalised assessments and an individually tailored care plan formulated by our clinical psychologist. A medically managed detoxification programme is available for those clients who need it.

As many as 10% of people will, at some stage in their lives suffer from depression, at the Haven we offer an effective treatment programme for this debilitating illness.


An aftercare program is formulated for all clients before they leave the rehabilitation centre, with appropriate referrals in place for a successful transition.
