Starting your addiction treatment
Here at our drug and alcohol rehab West Lothian, we’re very proud of our dedicated and experienced team of addiction experts. Throughout our years of experience, we have streamlined our admissions process to make it as easy as possible as we understand how difficult it can be to open up and ask for professional support. After you’ve taken your first step towards rehabilitation by contacting our team, we can discuss all of the treatment options available at our West Lothian drug and alcohol service. Then if you’re happy to progress, we can set a date for you to join us for a pre-screening assessment which helps us to design the most effective rehab programme which suits your unique requirements.
Upon completion of your pre-screening assessment, we can arrange for you to join us at our drug and alcohol rehab as an inpatient or as an outpatient and will ensure that you’re fully settled in before commencing your addiction treatment. The time between contacting our admissions team and actually beginning your rehab programme at our treatment centre should be no longer than 48 hours as we strive to get you started as soon as possible.
Find the best rehab for you
Before beginning your treatment programme, you’ll first need to choose between inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab. Undergoing addiction treatment as an outpatient means that you’ll stay at home throughout your rehabilitation whilst visiting our rehab in West Lothian each day to receive your therapy sessions. However, when it comes to residential rehab, you’ll stay overnight at our rehab centre until you’ve completed your addiction treatment

Whilst both of these treatment options have their own advantages and disadvantages, it’s essential that you select the best method to maximise the effectiveness of your rehabilitation. It’s clear to see that the majority of people do find more success with inpatient rehab as opposed to outpatient rehab which could linked to the benefit of being surrounded by an excellent team of recovery workers within a relaxed and motivational environment which may not always be the case at home.
Mental health problems and addiction
If you’re suffering from both an addiction to drugs or alcohol and mental health problems, then this is called a dual diagnosis. A dual diagnosis is fairly common and can either occur when someone who is suffering from an addiction, is affected by the toxins within alcohol or drugs causing psychological damage with the potential to result in long-term mental health problems. A dual diagnosis can also occur when someone who is living with mental health problems resorts to drugs and alcohol as a way to shut away from their psychological pain.
Our drug and alcohol rehab West Lothian delivers excellent treatment programmes with a holistic approach to not only focus on improving your body and mind, but also on improving your general well-being; this has long been proven to be the most effective method of drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
Our fantastic network of recovery workers includes mental health support staff, doctors, nurses, therapists, and psychologists who work endlessly to ensure all of our clients are motivated to achive success throughout the duration of their addiction treatment programme. The range of psychological and well-being therapies we deliver include stress management, mediation therapy, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), drug and alcohol relapse prevention, mindfulness, yoga, relaxation and sleep management, low level laser therapy, nutritional support therapy, art therapy, and music therapy.
Relapse prevention therapy
We feature many psychological therapies, including individual, group or family counselling, psychotherapy, stress management, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), and relapse prevention.
When it comes to drug or alcohol relapse prevention, this is one of the most essential tools to put into practice once you return home to continue your road to recovery. We have an excellent team who will work with you to identify the causes of your drug or alcohol addiction, helping you to avoid any potential relapses and to also understand how to manage a relapse if one does occur.
Along with our team, you can also access AA meetings in West Lothian, these can help people reduce the risks of relapse, and by finding a sponsor in these meetings, you can build up a relationship with somebody who has been what you are going through and come out the other side.
Suffering from a drug or alcohol relapse after addiction treatment can be quite common and is nothing to get too disheartened about. It is, however, very important that you continue to learn and put your relapse prevention sessions into practice to avoid another relapse.
What are some common signs of addiction to alcohol or drugs?A drug or alcohol addiction will have different effects on different people as each individual will have their own underlying reasons or causes as to how they became addicted to alcohol or drugs. This means that everyone will have slightly different signs and symptoms but there are some that we commonly see such as being unable to say no to the substance, being dishonest, appearing pale and unwell, being less interested in activities or socialisation, frequent mood swings, always feeling tired, and consuming more alcohol or drugs to feel the desired effects.
What happens when you return home after rehab?Typically, our treatment programmes last around 28 days, but this is really dependent on the severity of your addiction in addition to your own personal circumstances. After completing your rehab treatment, you’ll of course return home to resume your recovery journey with the continued guidance of our dedicated aftercare team. Your personalised aftercare plan could include additional cognitive behavioural therapy, relapse prevention, or counselling sessions as needed.
How expensive is private rehab?Without knowing the nature of your drug or alcohol addiction this is a difficult question to ask. The cost of drug and alcohol rehab varies on a number of factors such as whether you choose to inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab and if you select private treatment or rehab with free local health services like the NHS. It’s worth noting that despite the additional cost of private drug and alcohol rehab, this has proven to be the most effective method of addiction treatment.
