The process of getting into rehab

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: A GP is a good place to start. They can discuss your gender problems with you and get you into treatment. They may offer you treatment at the practice or refer you to your local drug service. If you're not comfortable talking to a GP, you can approach your local gender treatment service yourself.

Private rehab Process
Skip The Waiting List. Self-funding: you can self refer. This means literally call or turn up at your prescription drugs rehab 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 Newton Mearns. 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 East Renfrewshire
  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 addicts

Everyone is very friendly. The staff in East Renfrewshire 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 East Renfrewshire?

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 prescription drug abuse/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "67% of alcoholics who attend rehab plus continued attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous in the patient's home community in Newton Mearns recovery?."

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

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.

"I just want to thank you all for all the help you have been, are being and will be in helping our son in his rehab. Words can't describe how thankful I am." Benicio August 2019 UK

Why rehab might not work:

  • Under-qualified addiction treatment staff
  • Co-occurring disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorders and gender dysphoria are not identified
  • See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?

The duration of your prescription drugs 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

Newton Mearns

A typical day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and prescription drug abuse/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in East Renfrewshire 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 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 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 Newton Mearns 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.

Ideal location for treatment

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

Every addict is different. However, most qualified psychiatrists often recommend that removing alcoholics away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably recommended.

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 East Renfrewshire. Over 10,000 patients have passed through our doors since 1988, and the majority have gone on to achieve, long-term abstinent recovery from their addictions. Another is Smarmore Castle in Ireland.

Why Castle Craig?

  • Recommended prescription drugs rehab
  • Holistic therapies
  • Offer therapy and detoxification
  • Cravings management
  • Professional, specialised, accessible and confidential
  • After Castle Craig's rehab programme,  91.8% of those questioned either living with reduced alcohol or drug use or totally abstinent. More.
