Case Studies & Research

At Alcohol & Drug Recovery Centre, we base our practice on measurable results and evidence. Our case studies and research prove the efficiency and performance of our approach.

We design our approach to establish long term changes that are measurable. We have identified previous cases while maintaining our patient’s anonymity. This way, you further understand our program’s performance.

Our visitor arrived with severe anxiety, severe stress, and a moderate depressive condition. We applied our equine therapy, music therapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy. Our goal was to help him achieve recovery from chronic stress and his substance abuse concerns.

The program spanned five weeks, and at the end of the program, his stress and depression level dropped from severe to normal. However, he maintained a moderate level of anxiety. 

Then, seven months into our post-residential help and support, the anxiety level dropped to normal as he had developed healthy coping techniques that allowed him to establish positive life changes. 

Our visitor arrived with severe anxiety, severe stress, and a severe depressive condition. We applied our equine therapy, personalised therapy, and brainspotting therapy. 

The program spanned five weeks, and at the end of the program, her anxiety, stress, and depression level dropped from severe to normal.

Our visitor arrived with normal anxiety, normal stress, and moderate depression. However, the primary concern was his unhealthy consumption of alcohol. We applied our personalised therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and brainspotting therapy. We also provided some form of physical exercise.

Our program spanned four weeks, and the end of the program, his depression level was normal. Although this got to the moderate level for anxiety and mild level for depression some four weeks after, this was understandable as the guest was adapting to a life without alcohol.

At Alcohol & Drug Recovery Centre, our rehabilitation and recovery program are evidence-based. We have considerable industry research that affirms that our programs are relevant to recovery from substance abuse, addiction and dependency, anxiety and depression, trauma and grief, and other mental health conditions.
