Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centres in Scotland
Are you having trouble controlling your use of alcohol or drugs? Perhaps you are visiting our website because you are concerned about a friend or family member whose substance misuse seems to be out of control. In either case, we want you to know that alcohol and drug rehab in Scotland are readily available. There’s no need for you or your loved one to travel a great distance to receive adequate treatment.
Drug and alcohol rehab in Scotland comes in many forms including residential rehab, outpatient treatments, counselling and group support. The key is understanding the situation you are dealing with in order to match you with the best possible treatment programme. Believe us when we say that matching you or your loved one with the right programme could make the difference between success and failure.
The truth is that no single drug or alcohol treatment works for everyone. We used to think there was, but decades of achieving less-than-favourable results with a one-size-fits-all approach have led us to change the way we do things. Now we approach every person on an individual basis. Now we develop bespoke treatment plans that meet individual needs.
Local Rehab in Scotland
We are happy to say that there are plenty of local options available for drug and alcohol rehab in Scotland. In the major cities, such as Glasgow, there are obviously more choices than you’ll find in rural areas. Still, there are enough facilities across the country that you or your loved one could get treatment here without having to travel.
The benefits of local rehab in Scotland are numerous:
- Local treatments tend to offer patients a sense of comfort
- Family member visits are easier when treatments are local
- Clinic staff are usually locals as well, so they know local conditions
- Aftercare is easier to arrange when treatments are local
- Getting involved with a local support group is easier after rehab
- Local companies are more likely to participate in job training programmes after rehab.
There are some definite advantages to undertaking rehab elsewhere in the UK or Europe. And sometimes, travelling far away is the best thing for the drug addict or alcoholic. But local rehab is usually the best bet.
What about Drug Rehab Centres in Scotland
Some of the clients we talk to are not ready to discuss alcohol or drug rehab in Scotland as opposed to travelling for treatment. Why? Because they haven’t even come to terms with the necessity of rehab. This hurdle is one that must be overcome before Addiction Helper can be of any assistance locating and accessing a rehab programme.
Let’s look at your situation. If you are visiting our website because you’re concerned about your own drug and alcohol use, we want to ask you this question: are you ready to acknowledge you might need professional help? If so, we can move on to other things. You can call our 24-hour helpline to immediately speak with a counsellor who can assess your situation and offer treatment recommendations.
If you’re not ready to acknowledge your need for treatment, that becomes our starting point. You are the only person who can make the decision about treatment. We encourage you to step back and take an honest look at your circumstances. Do you:
- find yourself obsessed with having enough drugs or alcohol;
- have trouble performing at work or school because of your substance use;
- struggle to pay your bills because you’re spending so much money and drugs or alcohol; or
- find you are having to increase the amount you use in order to still feel good?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then you may already be on the road to addiction. If you answered ‘yes’ to all of them, there’s a good chance you are already addicted. That means you need professional treatment. Are you willing to admit that?
