Located on the beautiful south coast of England, Providence Projects is an upscale rehab in the city of Bournemouth. It offers both detox and residential care for men and women struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Home to beautiful sandy beaches, the warmest temperatures in the UK and a laid back environment, Bournemouth is the perfect place to begin recovery. Clients receive individualized treatment plans, which consist of group and individual therapy utilizing traditional methods like the 12-step philosophy, evidence-based practices like CBT and more holistic options like nutritional counseling, meditation and yoga.
Providence Projects was founded in 1996 by a recovering addict and a doctor. After finding recovery, training to be a counselor and working in some of the best rehabs in the UK, Steve Spiegel met Dr Peter Turnbull, a top addiction specialist, and together they created Providence Projects.
Accommodations and Food
Residential treatment takes place in a 15-bed co-ed facility with men and women residing on separate floors. The home is a tidy white townhouse just a few blocks from the beach. Bedrooms are double occupancy with shared bathrooms throughout the facility, as well as lounge areas with large couches and flat screen TVs mounted on the walls.
All food is provided and prepared by on-site chefs. The menus are designed by a dietician to replenish nutrients and provide a blueprint for healthy eating.
Treatment and Staff
Providence Projects offers holistic care tailored to every client’s personal recovery needs, and includes a variety of therapeutic modalities. If detox is necessary, this process can last between three and seven days and is monitored 24 hours a day by a medical staff. Most clients then go directly into the residential program and begin a four-week protocol of daily group and individual therapy. Clients are welcome to stay longer than four weeks and are provided a reduced weekly rate after the first month. Group sessions focus on communication skills and coping mechanisms, along with relapse prevention planning. There are co-ed and gender specific groups available to deal with past traumas, sexual abuse, domestic violence and parenting issues.
Therapy methods include CBT, EMDR and DBT, along with holistic approaches like mindfulness meditation, nutrition and physical fitness. Psychoeducation sessions and lectures teach about the disease of addiction.
Programs are led by certified counselors, therapists and medical staff with years of experience, some of whom are also in recovery.
There is a garden on site and a yoga room. Weekly activities are planned for residents, like park outings, bike rides, beach walks, swimming, bowling and spa days. These trips are designed to help clients learn to have fun without alcohol and drugs.
Providence Projects was the first rehab of its kind in southern England. For 20 years, it has provided a safe space for clients to get clean and begin to heal. It offers a nice balance of traditional and holistic modalities, allowing clients to experience the personalization of the treatment here. Providence Projects is an excellent choice for those seeking affordable care with a luxury feel.
