Rutland Centre provides treatment for individuals with substance and/or behavioural addictions. They are informed by the American Society of Addiction Medicine which defines addiction as “a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits’ leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations”. We focus on the primary nature of addiction and the harmful consequences for the dependent person and their loved ones.

They deliver a trauma- informed integrative model of treatment, that includes various modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Person Centred Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Choice Theory/ Reality Therapy as per individual client need.

The 12-Step/Minnesota model remains a key cornerstone in their treatment approach. This model strongly advocates for ‘alcoholics and addicts helping each other’ and informs their philosophy of group process and relating and sharing honestly with like-minded others as being fundamental in treating addiction.
