About Addiction

Your referring doctor may have recommended you to receive treatment because of a substance or addiction issue.  If this is the case you will more than likely enroll in the Phoenix Program.  Our mental health team will create your treatment plan with you to ensure that your individual needs are met, however, during your assessment it may be recommended that you stay in one of our other wards at The Hills Clinic. For further information about The Hills Clinic in general visit our main website, www.thehillsclinic.com.au.

The Phoenix addiction program is a combination of a range of therapies that empower clients to take control of their own recovery.  The program takes on a holistic philosophy and embraces a range of techniques including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).  The combination of therapies used will provide individuals with the opportunity and skill set to change their addictive behaviours whether it is substance misuse or a behaviour issue like gambling.
