Alcoholism affects people of any race, sex, and class in Scotland. If you have a problem with depression, either binge drinking or excessive drinking there's a wide range of mental health services that can help.

Treatments offered for alcoholism may start with an intervention, discussion on 'moderation vs abstinence' and possibly the opinions of inpatient (residential postnatal depression treatment) or outpatient treatment (therapy), a detox may be required. A good long-term Residential rehab with talking therapy, counselling and expertise in addiction is also a very good idea. Keeping the alcoholic apart from alcohol and all the triggers associated with acting out can mean hospitalisation or residential postnatal depression treatment is the best solution. Not admitting to a drinking problem (denial) can often be an effective barrier to getting help for patients.

Common mental illnesses include anxiety disorders like generalised anxiety disorder, mood disorders/depression or cyclothymic disorder, psychotic disorders like substance-induced psychotic disorder and eating disorders like compulsive overeating

The process of getting into rehab

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: Successfully dealing with addiction often requires outside help. Start by talking to your GP and asking to be referred. There's a wide range of NHS services that can help near Leochel Cushnie and Edith Weston

Private rehab Process
Skip The Waiting List. Self-funding: you can self refer. This means literally call or turn up at your residential postnatal depression treatment of choice with a credit card. See admissions.

Health insurance: choose your rehab and then ask GP to write a referral letter for you to take away. Alternatively, ask the doctor of advice on which hospital or clinic he recommends. More.

Arriving at the treatment centre

This will differ at different facilities but it is much the same everywhere

  1. You will be assessed so that your treatment needs and medical requirements are understood and a treatment plan is created
  2. You may need to detox
  3. You may be assigned a consultant psychiatrist near Sandfordhill. They are in overall charge of your care and medication plan. They may make suggestions based on your diagnosis for additional medication or individual therapy on top of group work
  4. You may then assigned to a group of other alcoholics/addicts etc.
  5. You are then possibly assigned a therapist or support worker/nurse locally in Aberdeenshire
  6. You may be given 12 step recovery literature
  7. You are probably shown your room which you may have to share
  8. You might then meet the rest of the clients

Everyone is very friendly. The staff in Aberdeenshire have seen it all before so you are just another addict trying to recover. As patients, you are all in the same boat as everyone feels as raw and vulnerable as each other so making friends is normally easy.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Ownership: The treatment provided through UK hospital forces addicts to take ownership of their circumstances, feelings/emotions, actions and relationships, as opposed to blaming others.

    Without anyone or anything else to blame, he or she must come to terms with the fact that they alone are responsible for changing their addictive behaviour AND they are responsible for their own recovery. Rehab quickly teaches that those who try and get better for others will ultimately fail.

"The people at rehab were fantastic. They knew when to be tough and when to go easy. Thanks to them I haven't used since my release - and don't intend to. My recovery new must come first." Luciana August 2019 Aberdeenshire

Why rehab might not work:

  • Poor counsellors in Leochel Cushnie
  • Co-occurring disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorders and depression are not identified
  • See addiction myths

What is it like?

There are many different ways to treat addiction, including weekly hour-long group discussion groups and full 12-week programme residential stays.

Usually, clients come to rehab when they have either a) exhausted all other options or b) are conscious that their case is severe enough that they require the full support of a residential programme.

One of the reasons why residential rehab is so much more effective than outpatient treatment alone is that it usually incorporates all of the benefits of outpatient treatment (group therapy, reintegration, a space to share your experience with a supportive community) while it also removes you from the everyday stresses that can often trigger substance use. or other behavioural addiction issues. More.

How else can going to a local residential postnatal depression treatment help with?

  • Self-Harm Treatment
  • Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD)
  • Phobias Treatment
  • Help you come to terms with your own weaknesses or failings
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Treatment
  • Anxiety Attack Treatment

A typical day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and depression/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Aberdeenshire will follow a similar pattern.

A significant focus during treatment is on achieving clarity about the issues, people and surroundings in your life that have fuelled the desire to abuse drugs or alcohol/problems with internet, love bitcoin, food and shopping.


Sleeping in is not part of the programme. You get up early, get dressed, attend breakfast. Some clinics have morning meditation. Some clinics ask patients to clear away breakfast things on a rota.

  1. Breakfast is followed by group (often 90 minutes)
  2. (Break)
  3. Another Group (60 minutes)
  4. (Lunch)
  5. One to one session or Group (60 minutes)
  6. Group, yoga or Pilates session or lecture; (60 minutes)
  7. Possible meeting with your consultant, social worker, help team
  8. There is often written step or life story work to do

Evening time: Normally patients are bused to a meeting of AA, NA or relevant 12 step programmes.

Diet: A number of rehabs have adopted nutritional diets to combat mental health issues. There may be an absence of sugar and caffeine. Smoking is still allowed outside as it is said that alcoholics would not attend otherwise.

Devices: In some clinics phones or laptops use is forbidden or discouraged. Bear in mind that a person with internet or a gaming addiction may find other patient using their devices triggering.

Visitor/family contact: It was common for patients to be advised to limit any or all contact with friends or family during the first week of treatment. Again this differs by provider. NHS rehabs are often further from your home in Sandfordhill as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave: Yes, these are not secure facilities or locked wards.

Can I come back? Not always, the NHS is sometimes stricter, if you drink or use you may be barred from returning either, at all or within 48 hours.

The best location for treatment

Finding the best rehab programme for issues and mental health problems caused by drug abuse is vital to long-term success. But where, close or far?

Every patient is different. However, most doctors often recommend that removing clients away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably sensible.

It is better that the location is quiet and has an atmosphere that is both calm, peaceful and still 100% recovery-focused. However, that does not mean that city rehabs do not have appeal.

The difficulty with towns and city location is that offer easy access to alcohol and drugs, whereas locations without shops and fewer people make accessing substances that little bit harder. Perhaps this could be the difference between a moment's weakness leading to relapse or sobriety.
