Starting the rehab process

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: First stop is GP. Ask to be referred for both counselling sessions for your depression or anxiety etc./addiction and to a local drug and alcohol team nearest to you in Angus. Although NHS resources are limited, it is still possible to receive funding for treatment.

Private rehab Process
Self-funding: you can self refer. This means you can literally call and book, or simply turn up with a credit card to your detox centre of choice. 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 Waulkmills. 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 patients etc.
  5. You are then possibly assigned a therapist or support worker/nurse locally in Angus
  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 Angus 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.

Does rehab work in Angus?

Yes it does. There is a strong evidence base to support the treatment methods used at Castle Craig, as well as in support of residential rehabilitation treatment for alcohol or drugs/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "Compared to going it alone, alcoholics who attend rehab are 5 times more likely to recover"

What's it like? Click here for more information.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Ownership: The treatment provided through hospital forces addicts to take ownership of their circumstances, feeling, 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.

  2. Professional Addiction Support: Rehab in Angus offers a level of group support not available through community-based services. Addicts have many similarities with other addicts regardless of the drug (or behaviour) of choice.

    People with a range of mental health problems can be very different from patients suffering from an addiction, although their symptoms, depression, anxiety etc may appear similar. An addict can often only find solace in another addict. Many rehab counsellors are recovering addicts/alcoholics.

    AA and NA whilst very important as a way of staying sober are sometimes not sufficient in early sobriety, especially when detox is required. However, they are voluntary charities. They are not professional and cannot always identify or address other mental health issues. Members are not trained.

"depression or anxiety etc. was my life. We have a chance at a new and happier life together with our daughter who is recovering well and so are we. I am grateful for all the help." Brysen December 2018 UK

Why rehab might not work:

  • Lax screening process, i.e. taking anyone who will pay
  • The rehab program doesn't meet individual needs in Arbirlot
  • See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?

The duration of your detox centre stay will depend on the severity of your dependency, your own commitment, family support and willingness to live a life free from dependency, and the amount of time and money you have available to spend. If you have insurance then it will generally be 28-days.

Generally, the longer the rehab programme the less likely you are to relapse. NHS rehab normally accommodates longer inpatient treatments sometimes up to a year. More.

Average UK inpatient times

  • Detox: 7-10 days (Methadone/20 days and Benzodiazepines/2-8 weeks).
  • Hospital residential treatment, general mental health issues, depression/anxiety etc.: 7-14 days
  • Most common Addiction programme/residential treatment: 28-days
  • long-term residential treatment: 90 days
  • NHS funded treatment, non private: 3months - 1 year
  • Long term Outpatient treatment (including treatment for alcohol or drugs: 130 days
  • More.

A 'normal' day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and alcohol or drugs/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Angus 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 shopping, sex or love.

Daytime

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 programme.

Diet: Several 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 Waulkmills as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave my detox centre? Yes, there are not secure facilities.

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 Perfect Rehab Location

Finding the best rehab programme for issues from depression or anxiety etc. is vital to long-term success. But where close or far? Every addict is different. However, most consultants often recommend that removing patients 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.

Recommended rehabs. One rehab that ticks all of these boxes is Castle Craig based outside Edinburgh. Only a 4-hour train ride or less from Angus.
