Success Rates

Since 1995, The BONDS protocols have been used to detox more than 12,000 patients. 97% were abstinent on completion of the initial detox. For opiate addiction, 66% were still abstinent after 12 months*. This compares to 8-16% for some other services and as low as 2-8% for some traditional methadone programmes.

The BONDS protocols were first published in 2000 in Addiction Biology and are one of only a few addiction programmes to publish outcomes. With proven success, we believe in transparency and will work with you towards a brighter future.

 

*Outcome measures recorded at a time in previous years when Dr Amal Beaini was previously providing the BONDS protocols from the Detox5 service, not The BONDS clinic at Broughton. We are very pleased to say that these BONDS protocols are now part of The BONDS Clinic at Broughton. Detox5(TM) has closed a few years ago. Abstinence data at 12 months did not include those patients who could not be contacted or lost to follow up.

  • Consolidation and Relapse Prevention

    Our Consolidation and Relapse Prevention programme is a 12 month programme consisting of inpatient and outpatient. Within this 12 month programme the patient will go through:

    • Consultant-led Dual Diagnosis
    • Addiction-focused talking therapy
    • Medicated relapse prevention
    • Naltrexone implants
    • Re-integration into society – work & family

    Our aftercare model is here to support you when you leave the clinic and our team are here if you feel you need an extra hand or struggling to re-integrate back into society or the home environment.

  • What happens if I relapse

    Here at The BONDS Clinic we never judge or criticise; we’ll do our best to support you on the path to recovery. We would expect there may be some cravings at times and these cravings could increase the risk of relapse. If a relapse happens, this is by no means an admission of defeat. In fact we see this as a learning and how we help prevent relapse in the future. We have many options to consider if you do relapse and our dedicated team are on hand to work with you on the areas that contributed to relapse.
