Bridge of Dee

Dumfries and Galloway/Bridge of Dee/DG7

Are you ready to stop drinking? Alcoholism affects people of any race, sex, and class in Scotland. If you have a problem with cannabis, 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 treatment centre) or outpatient treatment (therapy), a detox may be required. A good cannabis addiction help 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 cannabis addiction help is the best solution. Not admitting to a drinking problem (denial) can often be an effective barrier to getting help for alcoholics/addicts.

Common mental illnesses include anxiety disorders like panic disorder, mood disorders/manic depression, psychotic disorders like suffering from delusions or hallucinations and eating disorders like binge eating disorder

The process of getting into rehab

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: Your GP in Bridge of Dee is a good place to start. They can discuss your SAD problems with you and help get you the right residential seasonal affective disorder (SAD) treatment in Dumfries and Galloway.

Private rehab Process
Skip The Waiting List. Self-funding: you can self refer. This means literally call or turn up at your cannabis addiction help 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 Bridge of Dee. 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 clients etc.
  5. You are then possibly assigned a therapist or support worker/nurse locally in Dumfries and Galloway

  7. You are probably shown your room which you may have to share
  8. You might then meet the rest of the addicts

Does rehab work in Dumfries and Galloway?

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 cannabis/addictions.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Aftercare: UK Statistics show that aftercare is an important component in achieving long-term abstinence. Recovering clients who do not receive appropriate aftercare are 10 times more likely to relapse within one year.

  2. Ownership: The treatment provided through hospital forces alcoholics/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.

"Did not know what to expect. But I was very impressed by the staff, the facilities and, most of all, the therapy. Right now, it's like this." Owen July 2019 Dumfries and Galloway

Why rehab might not work:

  • Lack of participation in groups and therapy
  • Rehab is too close to home in Bridge of Dee
  • See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?

The duration of your cannabis addiction help 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

Bridge of Dee

A 'normal' day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and cannabis/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Dumfries and Galloway 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 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 Bridge of Dee as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave my cannabis addiction help? 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 best location for treatment

Finding the best rehab programme for issues from SAD is vital to long-term success. But where, close or far?

Every patient is different. However, most consultants often recommend that removing addicts 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.
