Addiction Information referralform2

Are you, or a family member struggling with an addiction? You’re not alone. We have helped a great many people to face, understand, repair and recover from addictions. Be it addiction to alcohol, substance misuse, gambling or internet-based addictions. We can help you to find ways to cope and to change your behaviour, improving your mental and physical wellbeing and setting yourself free. We have years of experience in helping people to end addictive behaviours.

Features of the service

Your GP, or another doctor can arrange a referral to our service. At your first appointment we will carry out a careful assessment to examine your addiction and begin to identify the causes. Then we will put together an individual treatment programme, built around you. The team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, a social worker, senior addiction counsellors and nursing staff. Our treatment programmes usually involve a stay in Saint John of God Hospital where we will welcome you and make you as comfortable as possible.

What it costs : If you have private health insurance, it will cover your treatment, depending of course on your cover (call us to check). If you don’t have private health insurance, you will be asked to pay a deposit on admission and regular payments thereafter.
