Choosing between residential treatment or outpatient treatment
Searching through the range of various treatment options available to you can be quite an overwhelming process. After your initial search, you’ll likely notice two main options for addiction treatment which are either private drug and alcohol rehab or addiction treatment provided by the NHS. Although free addiction treatment with local health services like the NHS might sound attractive, it’s not usually the most effective method of rehabilitation. Due to their lack of funding and resources, they’re unable to tailor any of their treatment programmes to suit the individual which means you’ll receive a generic rehab programme to follow which might not benefit your recovery at all. Another downside to free addiction treatment is that you’ll have to join a long waiting list to start your rehab which could be detrimental to your long-term recovery.
With private clinics providing drug and alcohol rehab, they’ll aim to welcome you into their treatment centre within 48 hours of you making your initial contact. With a high level of personalisation, excellent facilities, and evidence-based addiction therapies, private clinics like our drug and alcohol rehab Lanark produce the highest rate of successful recoveries; particularly when compared to free addiction treatment.
Despite the costs attached to private drug and alcohol rehab, you’ll be saving yourself a lot of time and effort by choosing the best treatment straight away, especially if you have an unsuccessful attempt with the NHS. The advantages of private clinics certainly outweigh the cost as you’re so much more likely to achieve a long-term recovery with the expert support and motivation of our recovery focused team; we’re confident that we can help you to create a future from alcohol or drugs.
Drug and alcohol addiction treatment
We’re very proud of the wide range of addiction therapies delivered at our drug and alcohol rehab Lanark. It’s very important to receive a personalised rehab programme if you want to achieve a successful long-term recovery from alcohol or drugs. Before your carefully selected therapy sessions begin, you’ll most likely start your rehabilitation journey with a visit to our detox clinic. We know that a lot of people are nervous about undergoing drug or alcohol detoxification but put simply, detoxing is the process of gradually reducing your consumption of the substance in a controlled environment so that we can minimise any risks and reduce the discomfort as much as possible.

The discomfort of detoxification usually stems from the withdrawal symptoms which present themselves as your consumption of the substance is gradually reduced. These can range from mild nausea, headaches, and dizziness to the more severe symptoms of seizures, insomnia, and delirium tremens (the DT’s).
After your drug or alcohol detoxification, you should feel as though your body and your mind have been cleansed, encouraging you to stay motivated as you take on your psychological and well-being therapies. These psychological therapies may include relapse prevention, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), individual, group, or family counselling, psychotherapy, and stress management, whereas the therapies which focus on improving your general well-being could include art therapy, fitness therapy, yoga, mindfulness, music therapy, relaxation and sleep management, low level laser therapy, nutritional supplement therapy, and meditation.
From our years of experience, we’ve found that those people who receive a holistic approach to their addiction treatment, utilising physical, psychological and well-being therapies, achieve the most successful long-term recoveries from drug or alcohol addiction. Combine this proven method with our excellent team of recovery workers and exceptional rehab facilities, you’ll have the best opportunity to overcome your drug or alcohol addiction once and for all.
Personalised aftercare plan
Following a personalised aftercare plan is crucial to the success of your rehabilitation. This dedicated aftercare is included for all of our clients and provides them with access to support networks such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous which have proven to be fantastic spaces to share with others in a similar situation to you. Within your aftercare plan, we can also arrange additional therapy sessions such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), counselling, or relapse prevention should you need it. Some people also find it useful to include their friends or family within their aftercare plan as this gives them additional support, particularly when it comes to relapse prevention.
How do you start your addiction treatment?
At our drug and alcohol rehab Lanark, the first step towards receiving addiction treatment is to get in touch with our admissions team either over the phone or via email. We appreciate that this can be a daunting experience but rest assured, we’re here to help and will have the answer to all of your questions about our drug or alcohol rehab.
Are there any free addiction treatment options?
Yes, there are free addiction treatment options. However, these aren’t always the best option and have proven to produce less successful recoveries than private rehab has. Local health services like the NHS do offer rehab programmes but because of their lack of resources and funding, they’re unfortunately unable to offer any kind of personalisation to their treatments meaning you’re unlikely to achieve a long-term recovery from a severe drug or alcohol addiction using this method.
What does a typical day at your rehab facility look like?
Each day at our rehab clinic will be slightly different, although will usually include a mix of psychological and well-being therapies, some time for lunch and some downtime in the evenings where you can participate in our organized activities such as quiz nights, film nights, family visits, and group walks or runs. A typical day in rehab will also vary dependent on whether you’ve chosen inpatient or outpatient treatment. As an inpatient you’ll stay at our rehab in Lanark for the duration of your addiction treatment whereas with outpatient treatment, you’ll visit us each day before returning home for the night.
