CBT focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviour. CBT works by addressing destructive thought patterns that drive addiction by questioning if these beliefs are true and replacing them with constructive ones. Click the button below to learn more.

Frequently asked questions

Are UKAT therapists certified for addiction counselling?
Yes. All our therapists and counsellors are certified professionals, who have had extensive trainings in their field.
How long does addiction counselling take?
Whilst in rehab, we recommend clients stay with us for at least twenty-eight days. This is to ensure they give themselves time to adjust to each mode of treatment. Once they leave rehab, they’re likely to have found one or more methods of treatment that resonate with them most. Clients can continue working on these for the rest of their lives, as they can be crucial tools for long-term sobriety. Additionally, to ensure clients get the best possible start to life-long recovery, we provide one-year free aftercare so clients can maintain a good start to their recovery.
What if I don’t want to do all the therapies?
It’s important to enter rehab with an open mind. Some treatments may work better for you than others, but you may surprise yourself when you discover a new mode of thinking or approach to expressing your emotions, so we advise you to try all treatments offered. If you don’t want to do something, for example, you don’t like needles and don’t want to try acupuncture; this is okay. You can chat with your lead counsellor to discuss your concerns.
What are the most effective therapies for addiction?
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to recovery treatment. Addiction looks different for everyone; therefore, recovery will too. However, there are likely to be one or more treatments that call to you and propel you further towards recovery. It’s up to you to discover what those will be. In general, most people find that a combination of treatments helps them to sustain long-term recovery.
Does UKAT provide addiction counselling in all centres?
Yes. UKAT has eight centres located across the UK, including Sanctuary Lodge, and all of them provide addiction counselling therapies lead by qualified therapists.
