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 Dumfries and Blackmill

Private rehab Process
Skip The Waiting List. Self-funding: you can self refer. This means literally call or turn up at your rehabilitation service 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 Dumfries. 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 Dumfries and Galloway
  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 alcoholics

Everyone is very friendly. The staff in Dumfries and Galloway 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 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 drug and alcohol/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "42% to 64% of recovering substance abusers will avoid relapse after attending rehab"

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Aftercare: UK Statistics always show that aftercare is an important component in achieving long-term abstinence from alcoholism. Recovering addicts who do not receive appropriate aftercare are 10 times more likely to relapse within one year. Most clinics include aftercare as part of their treatment services in most cases. NHS clinics do not always have this facility

  2. Safe, Caring Environment: Residential treatment at a private clinic is conducted in a safe environment that is free of the distractions of everyday life. Alcoholics are living in a bubble, they are completely insulated from the outside world. This means that there are fewer distractions or triggers. Addicts can concentrate all of their energies on getting well. They are effectively removed from all of the outside distractions and stressors and 'immersed in recovery'.

"Counsellors and staff genuinely cared and are very knowledgeable. Highly recommend rehab for treatment. One day at a time!." Leilani June 2016 London

Why rehab might not work:

  • Poor consultants in Dumfries
  • clients going to rehab for someone other than themselves
  • 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 rehabilitation service help with?

  • Anger and rage
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Treatment
  • Treatment for alcoholism
  • Teach you new ways to think about drugs, gambling and alcohol etc.
  • Bereavement counselling and support
  • Help you understand how your addiction and behaviour hurts others

A 'normal' day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and drug and alcohol/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 and sex and shopping.

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 patients 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 Dumfries as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave my rehabilitation service? 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 drug and alcohol 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 a good idea.

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.
