The world is currently facing an unprecedented healthcare challenge in the shape of the Coronavirus pandemic and for those struggling with alcohol or drug problems the physical and psychological effects of isolation and uncertainty can be particularly severe. Indeed, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently issued a warning about the effects of alcohol on the immune system and its official guidance is that people should abstain from drinking completely at this current time.
Consequently, we believe it is more important than ever that clients are still able to access our treatment services. We routinely test all staff and clients entering day care, sober living and luxury residential rehab and follow all WHO and government guidelines on social distancing and other protocols.
However, not everyone is able or willing to travel in order to undertake treatment and that is why we are seeing more and more clients turning to our Online Recovery programme, which provides full access to the proven Phoenix Programme and our world leading therapists from the safety and comfort of home.
