Addiction rehabilitation treatment programmes
For many years addiction was seen as an addict’s weakness or personal choice.
Sadly, there are still rehabilitation centres, some local, that refuse to acknowledge the years of careful research verifying that addiction is a chronic disease.
As with any chronic illness/disease (diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure) the threat of relapsing back into addiction will always exist.

Step Away Drug Addiction and Alcohol Abuse Treatment Centre is open to any persons wanting to live free from substance dependency.
Our approach to treating drug addiction and alcohol abuse is tolerant of any religion, race, gender and sexuality.
You and your life matter.
We all have a story about the first time we used, drank or used and drank.
Back then we chose to use.
Back then we chose to drink.
But we also have a time in our lives when that all changed and we could no longer choose.
We are called addicts.
But we are more than addicts, we are people.
We love. We care. We feel. We fail.
Making the decision to seek help for your addiction requires a great deal of strength and courage.
Unfortunately it is not the only decision you'll have to make.
There are a number of questions you need to ask and rehabilitation procedures you need to check in order to guarantee that the rehab you choose is not just a "luxury guesthouse" pretending to be a "luxury rehab centre".
Prescription drug abuse can be defined as taking medication differently to how you were instructed in order to feel the pleasurable effects or a “high” or to avoid the unpleasant side-effects of not taking the drug.
For example this could be taking your prescribed Ambien three or four times a day instead of the prescribed frequency and duration.
It’s important to be conscious of the long-term effects that continued prescription medication abuse can have on your body and overall quality of life.
Approximately 20% of alcoholics worldwide are highly functional, and are able to maintain the façade of their public lives, and their professional and personal relationships along with their jobs and responsibilities.
By maintaining their everyday lives at work and in public they avoid being labelled as having a drinking problem. , They are often hard-working, effective individuals who would never be assumed to have an alcohol addiction.
