When you contact Rehab Recovery, a telephone advisor will assist you by carrying out an initial assessment. This assessment requires around 10 minutes of your time to complete. We determine the severity and nature of your addiction to drugs or alcohol. We also determine whether or not you suffer from dually diagnosed mental health problems. This information allows us to consult our database of Scottish rehab clinics. We will then advise you on suitable rehab clinics in Scotland from this database that best meet your needs.
Overcoming denial and admitting you need help
Perhaps the most important step in overcoming your addiction to drugs or alcohol is to admit you have a problem in the first place. Overcoming denial is far less simple than it may seem. When you enter recovery, you will need to make drastic lifestyle changes, and many people will generally resist these changes for many different reasons. However, if your recovery is to work, you really must admit to yourself that you have a problem you cannot solve without professional help.
Different types of rehab in Scotland
In Scotland, there exists many different types of rehab clinic. These clinics specialise in helping solve different addictions and different mental health problems. Rehabs also differ in the quality of services on offer. Some offer a luxury rehab service. If you choose to go to a luxury rehab clinic, you will benefit from an en suite bedroom, gym facility and you will not have to cook your own food whilst your treatment programme takes place. Luxury rehab clinics are not inexpensive.
If you do not seek a luxury rehab clinic, Rehab Recovery is also able to refer you to a mid-range rehab clinic in Scotland. Here, you will undergo treatment in more modest settings. When you select a mid-range rehab clinic, the quality of therapy is equal in quality to that offered at a luxury rehab clinic. The only key point of difference is that a luxury rehab clinic offers superior surroundings and an enhanced degree of personal comfort.
What’s the difference between inpatient and outpatient rehab?
Inpatient rehab requires you to remove yourself from your living environment and reside within the actual clinic for around 10-28 days whilst you undergo addiction treatment. You will have limited contact with the outside world during this time. Inpatient rehab eliminates the risk of relapse because you will not be able to physically access drink and drugs whilst you undergo your treatment. This means inpatient rehab is ideal for people who may have tried and failed at other forms of outpatient addiction treatment.
Outpatient rehab is when you attend therapy and treatment sessions during the day time, but return home during the evening. Outpatient rehab is not as intensive as inpatient rehab, and the risk of relapse is greater because you are not removed from your drug or alcohol using environment whilst you undergo treatment. Outpatient rehab is generally recommended for people who suffer from a mild addiction, or perhaps for people who have gone through the rehabilitation process before but have experienced relapse.
How do I get into rehab in Scotland?
To gain entry into a rehab clinic in Scotland, you must contact Rehab Recovery today and complete a short telephone assessment. This assessment allows us to recommend a rehab clinic in Scotland that’s suited to your needs. Once we’ve located suitable rehab clinics in Scotland, we then refer your details to the rehab clinics you decide to consider in more detail.
Each rehab clinic will contact you directly. You will converse with each rehab clinics’ admission team. Once you’ve chosen a rehab clinic, you will then undertake a preadmission assessment. Following the completion of this assessment, you will then agree a date and time for your actual admission.
What happens during my rehab programme in Scotland?
When you arrive at a rehab clinic in Scotland, you will begin your treatment by undergoing a psychiatric assessment. This assessment is vitally important for all that follows during your rehab programme, because the psychiatrist will prescribe a suitable cause of action that will be followed by clinical staff for the entire duration of your rehab programme. During this assessment, the psychiatrist will conduct a physical and psychiatric assessment. You will also be given drugs to help to ease drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
Once your rehab begins, you will undergo a detox programme. A detox programme allows the clinical staff to monitor and treat withdrawal symptoms. This helps to ensure you do not suffer from potentially deadly withdrawal symptoms during your detox.
Both during and following your detox, you will engage in clinically proven therapy sessions. These sessions treat underlying emotional problems that are really the cause of drug and alcohol addiction. These therapy sessions continue until the conclusion of your rehabilitation programme. In fact, therapy sessions continue even following your discharge from the rehab centre because you will benefit from therapy sessions when you attend your personalised aftercare programme.
