When Is Drug and Alcohol Rehab Required?

Do you find it hard to go through 24 hours without thinking about, craving or consuming drugs and alcohol? Are you suffering from regular side effects and withdrawal symptoms from consistent drug and alcohol abuse? Are you suffering from secondary health problems linked to your addiction?

It is very common for individuals using drugs and alcohol to experience negative side effects, including mental health issues, serious illnesses such as organ failure and a weakened immune system.

No matter how small your addiction may seem, seeking the right support before greater damage is caused is important.

As drug and alcohol consumption continues, more and more damage will be brought to your physical and mental health, increasing the difficulty of rehabilitation.

Although addiction can be treated and worked through, the sooner expert support at a rehab facility is sourced, the sooner your life will be back on track and positive. Sadly, in some cases, individuals do not seek treatment, which can cause life-changing illnesses or death from overdose.

Avoid any further damaging effects by visiting a residential rehab facility here at Rehab Clinics Group. We have helped patients from across the globe, including Scotland to achieve sobriety.

Call us today if you are concerned that a drug and alcohol addiction may be on the horizon for you or a family member. We can start your rehab journey today at our rehab in Scotland.

Options for Addiction Treatment in Scotland

There are many different options for rehab in Scotland. There are two main options for addiction treatment, outpatient rehab and residential rehab. Some free options and private options.

For those struggling with addiction, there are several different treatment centres that offer help and support. There are also several free support groups available such as AA and NA, which can provide vital information and advice.

In addition, there are several charities that offer financial assistance to those in need, such as Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol & Drugs, Turning Point, We Are With You and River Garden.

For those who are not able to access private treatment, there are some limited funded options within the NHS. Visit your local GP to find out if you can get funded help for addiction.


Free Help for Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Overcoming addiction is not easy, but it is possible. There are many resources available to help you on your journey to recovery. Here are some of the most common types of free addiction help:

Our Free Helpline Service

We provide a free addiction helpline service to people in Scotland and across the country. Our addiction helpline service is free and provides valuable advice and help for vulnerable people across Scotland. If you require free advice and help with addiction, please call us on 0800 470 0382.

Support Groups

Support groups are one of the most important free tools in recovery, providing structure, accountability, and social support.

Members of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous, for example, have a proven track record of success in abstaining from alcohol use.

In addition to AA, there are other types of support groups available, including the likes of SMART Recovery and FRANK.

Each program takes a different approach to recovery, but all share the common goal of helping people overcome addiction.

Support groups provide an important sense of community and connection for those in recovery, and they offer a level of accountability that individual treatment cannot always provide.

If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, seek out a support group in your area to get started on the road to recovery.

NHS – GP Help

It can be difficult to overcome addiction without help, but fortunately, there are many doctors who specialise in treating this disease.

Doctors can help addicts by providing them with medication to ease withdrawal symptoms, counselling to help them cope with their addiction, and support to help them stay on track.

In addition, doctors can also refer addicts to treatment programs that can provide additional support. The benefit of this help is that it is free, however, there are many people who do not receive the proper treatment when they need it due to long waiting lists and insufficient quality of treatment.


Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab is a type of treatment that allows people to live at home while receiving therapeutic care. This type of care is often used for people who have substance abuse disorders or mental health conditions.

Outpatient rehab typically involves attending regular therapy sessions and participating in other activities that promote recoveries, such as support groups and 12-step programs. While outpatient care can be effective, it is important to remember that it requires a great deal of motivation and commitment.

People who are not ready to make significant changes in their lives may not be successful in outpatient rehab and will far better benefit from residential rehab.

For some people, however, outpatient care provides an excellent way to at least begin the journey of recovery.


Residential Rehab

For many people struggling with addiction, residential rehab provides an invaluable opportunity to recover in a safe and supportive environment.

Cut off from the outside world, residents can focus solely on their recovery, without having to worry about work, family, or other responsibilities.

In addition, they have access to around-the-clock care from trained professionals. This can be especially helpful for those who are dealing with complex issues such as trauma or co-occurring mental disorders.

While residential rehab is not right for everyone, it can be a lifesaving step for those who are ready to commit to recovery.


Benefits of Residential Rehab

There are a number of benefits of residential rehab treatment, as it is the most successful type of addiction treatment.

Although outpatient treatment is a cost-effective route to take, it is not as intensive as the detox and therapy that is provided at our rehab facilities, and with outpatient therapy, you won’t have regular therapists’ access.

Outpatient rehab is a rehab treatment option that works for some people, particularly for those who have less severe addiction problems. It is not always a suitable treatment provider for people who have severe alcohol and drug addiction though, as they need often need more intensive alcohol or drug treatment to achieve sobriety.

Pros of Residential Addiction Treatment

  • Medically-assisted detox programmes
  • Intensive therapy
  • Catering provided, including nutritious meals and laundry
  • Dual diagnosis treatment

How Long do you Have to Stay in Residential Rehab?

Residential rehab programs offer a safe and structured environment where people can detox from drugs or alcohol, receive treatment for their addiction, and begin the process of recovery.

The length of stay in a residential rehab program can vary depending on the severity of the addiction, the presence of any co-occurring mental health disorders, and the individual’s progress in treatment.

In most cases, people spend 28 to 90 days in residential rehab. However, some programs may last longer, and some people may need to transition to a less intensive level of care after completing a residential program.

Ultimately, the goal of residential rehab is to help people achieve long-term sobriety, and the length of stay should be tailored to each person’s needs.

Here at Rehab Clinics Group, we recommend a 28-day treatment programme which is usually the most effective as it allows enough time for you to have a full medical detox and receive world-class therapy treatment so you do not turn to substance abuse in the future.


How Much Does Residential Rehab Cost?

The cost of residential rehab can vary depending on several factors, including the length of stay, the type of treatment, and the location of the facility.

In general, however, most programs will fall somewhere in the range of £3,000 to £30,000.

With us, the cost of rehab is around £3000 per week. This includes the full service of accommodation, treatments, medical detox, professional therapies as well as an aftercare programme.

While this may seem like a large amount of money, it is important to remember that rehab is an investment in your future health and well-being.

In many cases, insurance will cover at least part of the cost of treatment, and there are often financial assistance programs available to help with the remainder.

When considering the cost of rehab, it is important to weigh the potential benefits against the price tag. For many people, residential rehab provides the best and only chance for a full and lasting recovery.

Treatment Programmes For Addiction

If you believe that residential rehab is required for you or a loved one to overcome severe addiction, here at our drug and alcohol rehabs which are situated across the UK and Scotland, you will complete a number of our industry-leading addiction treatments.

Each of our programmes is designed with long-term addiction recovery in mind to ensure that you remain sober after leaving our centre. We work to help you to stop drinking and consuming dangerous substances completely during your drug and alcohol detox.

Once you’ve started your rehab journey, our medical team will assess your addiction history and current health. From here a personalised residential treatment plan will be put in place to help you work through your cravings.

Drug and Alcohol Detox

For the vast majority of our clients, the first step at our drug and alcohol rehab in Scotland will be a drug and alcohol detox.

Although this is the most difficult step throughout the whole rehab process, it is the biggest step to take for your future recovery. Without completing a medically supervised detox, susceptibility to further treatment may be reduced, decreasing the chance for a full recovery.

You will likely experience some uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms during your detox, but our medical recovery team can organise prescription medication to help you alleviate symptoms. This is a major benefit of doing your detox as a residential rehab rather than as an outpatient programme or alone.

During the entire process, you will receive support and guidance from our expert team. This method will further prepare your body for a life without drugs and alcohol, as well as help you to understand that a sober life is possible.

Therapy Treatment

After your medical detox, a number of addiction therapy treatments will be recommended to work through your psychological fixation on drugs and alcohol at our rehab in Scotland.

Treatment options you can expect to complete include cognitive behavioural therapy, individual therapy, group therapy sessions, holistic therapies, as well as social activities.

Each of these treatment methods is important to understanding the underlying issues you are living through with drugs and alcohol.

From here, our specialised counsellors will be able to break down your barriers and understand your negative thoughts, while helping you turn these into positive outlooks.

To further increase your recovery success rate, our teams here at Rehab Clinics Group are passionate about educating our clients and loved ones on addiction at our alcohol rehab in Scotland.

You will understand your addictive behaviours greater and how to curb any future cravings with relapse prevention planning sessions. These steps will help you prepare for your return home to Scotland, as well as how to deal with any previous habits or triggers.

After rehab, our support and care will continue through outpatient treatment. We understand how difficult the transition back home to Scotland may be. This is a vulnerable time, where relapses are possible.

With that said, our team are on hand to help you through this time of change with free aftercare support. This will include regular contact, support groups and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and any further appropriate addiction treatment.

We pride ourselves on our continuous support which helps our clients fully recover from their previous drug and alcohol addictions.


Our Scotland Rehab Centres

Whether you want to stay at our rehab clinic in Scotland, or would like to visit another across the UK, each of our centres offers comfort, luxury and rehabilitation.

Whichever rehab centre you select, you will receive exceptional immediate care, which provides you with everything you need to work through this life-changing period and overcome substance use disorders.

Although we understand this process can be daunting, here at Rehab Clinics Group, we promote a short relocation for residential treatment. This step will provide you with the time, focus and energy to rehabilitate and avoid any negative influences at home.

Our private drug and alcohol rehab will welcome you to a home-from-home. Our alcohol rehab centres provide you with a relaxing setting which helps you to unwind, rejuvenate and work on yourself. We believe that this will provide you with the best possible outcome of returning home drug and alcohol-free.

For convenience, we can arrange accommodation and transport for you, starting your rehab journey off on a positive note. We can also offer additional services to make your time with us positive and comfortable.

We will provide around-the-clock support for you, along with including your family as and when possible. Your support network will influence your recovery probability; therefore, we will ensure you are surrounded by the right people.

  • Inpatient Or Outpatient Rehab?

    Deciding whether inpatient or outpatient rehab will work best for you is not an easy choice and you need to consider your options carefully before you make a decision and decide on a treatment plan. Ultimately, we know inpatient rehab is the most successful option – one of the main reasons being, that you will also be removed from bad influences, temptation and the source of your addiction. Unlike outpatient rehab, during inpatient rehab, you will not have any access to drugs and alcohol. Learn more about the two different choices.
  • Should I Go To A Local Rehab Centre?

    When you are thinking of going to rehab, the first question that may pop into your mind may be 'where do I go'? Should you travel far away to attend rehab? Or should you try a centre that is closer to home and more local? Both options have their advantages. Here's a breakdown of the options.
  • How Can Alcoholics Anonymous Help Me?

    At Rehab Clinics Group, we have always recommended Alcoholics Anonymous services to every person that reaches out to us for help with alcohol addiction. Continuing to remain sober following rehab can be challenging, and Alcoholics Anonymous gives former alcoholics continued support. Read more about the reasons we recommend AA meetings to our clients .
