On your admission to the Recovery Lighthouse clinic for treatment, you will receive a warm and friendly welcome. Admissions will need to be pre-booked however on most occasions, we can accommodate a new admission within 24 hours of making the booking.
Referrals can be accepted from the client themselves, family, friends, and health professionals. Once the booking is confirmed, we will ensure that our team are ready to receive you.
On arriving at our clinic you will be greeted by a designated admissions staff member who will complete administrative formalities and ensure that you fully understand all aspects of the treatment we will provide for you and your family or friends. You will be introduced to the clinical team and shown around so that you can familiarise yourself with the layout of the facility. You will be provided with a welcome pack that will explain all you need to know about your stay with us at the Recovery Lighthouse, along with a timetable of therapy sessions.
During your first 24 hours with us, we will arrange for you to see our specialist doctor and a full assessment will be carried out of any medical needs you may have. If required, a full detox regimen will be prescribed. The detox will then be administered and monitored under strict protocol by our team of professionals. Please remember that you will need to bring an ample supply of any medications that you may have been taking, as well as giving us details of your doctor’s surgery. The doctors will make recommendations and highlight any areas of your treatment that require specialist attention. It is important to us that all of your treatment needs are met during your stay, therefore we will ensure that anything highlighted or recommended is then incorporated into your bespoke treatment plan. Your treatment plan will then be continually reviewed by our counsellors, clinical director and medical team, ensuring that you are receiving the best care possible at all times.
Once your assessment has been completed, our team of staff members will then help you settle in. We fully understand that this is a very fearful and stressful time for most, but our staff are on hand to offer reassurance and advice at all times.
