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

Two reasons why rehabs work so well
Aftercare: UK Statistics show that aftercare is an important component in achieving long-term abstinence. Recovering alcoholics/addicts who do not receive appropriate aftercare are 10 times more likely to relapse within one year.
Safe, Caring Environment: Residential treatment at a private clinic is conducted in a safe environment that is free of the distractions of everyday life. Clients are living in a bubble, they are completely insulated from the outside world. This means that there are fewer distractions or triggers. Alcoholics 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'.

Why rehab might not work:

How long does rehab take?
The duration of your food addiction rehab 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

A 'normal' day in rehab
Days will differ from rehab to rehab and food/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in East Lothian 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 bitcoin, food, sex 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.
- Breakfast is followed by group (often 90 minutes)
- Another Group (60 minutes)
- One to one session or Group ;(60 minutes)
- Group, yoga or Pilates session or lecture ;(60 minutes)
- Possible meeting with your consultant, social worker, help team
- 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 clients 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 Athelstaneford as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.
Can I leave my food addiction rehab? 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.
Effective treatment solutions:
- Art group therapy

The Perfect Rehab Location
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 addict is different. However, most psychologists often recommend that removing addicts 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.

alcoholism often results in sepsis, infections and other transmitted diseases like HIV/AIDS, in the case of injected drugs. Many people believe that using the same needle repeatedly does not cause any infections because it isn't shared with others. However, this is not true. Using the same needles without sterilizing them can cause infections.Other local areas: Trottick, Barrhead, Darwell Hole, Whyteleafe, Trevor, Dreenhill, Kilmacolm, Lye Green, Binscombe, Pendine, Watlington and Garrachan.
