Why Choose Us

Step by Step Choosing a rehab clinic is a big step to take; we have complete confidence that we have everything you need to help you make a full and lasting recovery from addiction and substance abuse; all within the comfortable and beautifully furnished, tranquil setting of our Lighthouse rehab.

Recovery takes a unique four stepped approach to addiction treatment; ensuring that you are supported each and every step of the way from the transition of active addiction, to daily sober living. We achieve this through:

  1. A medically managed detoxification
  2. A bespoke rehabilitation programme
  3. Supported transition to sober living through our support living houses
  4. Ongoing aftercare and continuity of care

Personalised Approach to Addiction Treatment

Our approach is both holistic and therapeutic; we use a number of highly effective treatment techniques and models that are adapted to each individuals personal and specific treatment needs. We recognise that there is no one size fits all when it comes to treating addiction successfully. We pride ourselves on our flexible, professional and nurturing approach.
We will go that extra mile for each and every client; ensuring that no stone is left unturned, that could prove a potential stumbling block to their on ongoing future recovery.

Support Living Accommodation

Unlike other rehabs, we dont believe that treatment ends when rehab does. We provide supported living accomodation for those that need additional support or that do not have a suitable home environment to return to.

Open Door Policy – Life Long Aftercare

We believe that all of our clients should have access to free aftercare. Clients can choose to attend our weekly aftercare sessions for as long as they wish. Recovery is a lifelong process of growth and learning.

Any client that completes 4 weeks of inpatient Step By step Recovery treatment, can continue to benefit from our commitment and continuity of care through our life long aftercare programme.

Whenever you need that extra support, we are here for you, and so offer an indefinite period of aftercare that you can continue to access and learn from.

We also find, those who are further down the line in their recovery provide valuable experience to those whom are new to recovery.

Latest in Addiction Treatment Techniques

When it comes to treating addiction, we treat each individual as a whole person: physically, mentally, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually and socially. Addiction is a destructive, progressive and chronic disease of the brain. It takes time and the correct therapies to help heal fully.

Step By Step Recovery combines years of addiction treatment experience with clinical excellence. Offering a very high standard of treatment and accommodation at an affordable cost. We are passionate about helping addicts and their families to recovery and reunite.

Nothing brings us more satisfaction than to witness the miracle of healing that takes place in our rehab centre on a daily basis.

Family Support

We understand that it is not just the individual suffering from addiction that is affected, but that also family and loved ones suffer too. We will do all we can to support the family and loved ones of our clients, as they go through their own individual treatment experience with us.

Family are welcome to contact us at anytime with any concerns that they may have. We can also arrange, where we feel the treatment would be beneficial, a family intervention; where family can attend with their loved one and a counsellor present, who will facilitate a productive, therapeutic treatment session for all.
