Addiction is classed as a chronic disorder and considered a disease of the brain.

This means that it impacts all spheres of life.

If your drinking or use of other substances is making it hard to maintain your mental and physical health, social life and relationships, there is a chance that you may be experiencing addiction.

If you think that you or a loved one may be experiencing addiction, there are some questions you can ask to check:

  • Do you drink (or use substances) early in the morning to make it through the day?
  • Do you think you should cut down on your drinking (or use of substances)?
  • Do you ever feel angry or judged if people criticise your drinking (or use of substances)?
  • Do you ever feel guilty about your drinking (or use of substances)?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, it is possible you are struggling with addiction.

You will be able to talk about what concerns you and may also discuss patterns in your behaviour or thoughts that your professional has noticed.

The aim of individual therapy is to increase your self-awareness and allow you to reconnect with your feelings and feel comfortable sharing them with others.

Group Therapy

Family Therapy is when two or more relatives come together with a clinician to discuss a particular topic.

It focuses on the idea that when something affects one person, it might also impact their family members too.

Family therapy allows loved ones to come together and discuss their feelings about the situation in a safe and controlled manner.

Here are some examples of the different kinds of therapy you may access during drug and alcohol rehab in Bognor Regis.

Co-dependency treatment works to position relationships as equal, safe spaces where both individuals feel valued, respected and confident both as a partner and as their own person.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (also known as CBT) is a common kind of psychotherapy.

CBT focuses on the link between thoughts and behaviours.

CBT helps us to understand that challenging our thoughts can mean our behaviours change, and the other way round – challenging our behaviours can change our ways of thinking.

CBT therapists can talk through different kinds of tools and techniques to help you to challenge thoughts and behaviours that you may be struggling with.

Often you will be given exercises to help you practice using these tools outside of sessions.

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

Individual therapy

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (also known as DBT) is a kind of psychotherapy closely linked to CBT.

Like CBT, DBT focuses on the link between thoughts and behaviours.

DBT, however, is specifically designed to help you to deal with very intense emotions and impulsive behaviours.

DBT builds on CBT’s tools and techniques to help you to regulate your feelings and work to prevent quick reactions to feelings that could be potentially harmful.

DBT also teaches that is key to be accepting and to not judge yourself for your thoughts, feelings or behaviours ,as this can cause further distress.

Holistic Therapy

Twelve-Step Facilitation Therapy (TSF)
