Want sobriety? Alcoholism affects people of any race, sex, and class in Scotland.
If you have a problem with alcohol, 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 (drug or alcohol rehabilitation centre) or outpatient treatment (therapy), a detox may be required. A good rehab with talking therapy, counselling and expertise in addiction is also a good step forward. Keeping the alcoholic apart from alcohol and all the triggers associated with acting out can mean hospitalisation or alcohol rehab treatment is the best solution. Not admitting to a drinking problem (denial) can often be an effective barrier to getting help for addicts.
The 10 most common mental disorders are Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Anxiety Disorders and phobias, Addiction/Substance Use, Bulimia/anorexia, Personality Disorders and finally mood disorders which include depression.

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.

Does rehab work in Edinburgh?
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/addictions.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well
Local community-based or local outpatient services based in Edinburgh does not offer this opportunity or level or isolation. It is proven that taking a person out of their home and away from 'using friends' or 'dealers' offers a better chance of staying sober long term.
Aftercare: UK Statistics show that aftercare is an important component in achieving long-term abstinence. Recovering patients who do not receive appropriate aftercare are 10 times more likely to relapse within one year.
"alcohol was ruining my life. My experience in rehab was much more than I expected it to be. I came here broken and confused; I am leaving here, back in touch with my Higher Power. Count your blessings." Cameron May 2020 Dechmont
Why rehab might not work:
- Under-qualified addiction treatment staff
- Co-occurring disorders such as sleep disorders and personality disorders are not identified
- See addiction myths
Want an Addiction Recovery Program that works? See Getting into the right rehab, counselling and addiction therapy centre.
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.

A typical day in rehab
Days will differ from rehab to rehab and alcohol/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Edinburgh 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 gambling, internet 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 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 alcoholics/addicts 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 Pilton 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.
Cost of rehab
Costs can range from £2,000 per week for a basic service to around £10,000 per week for a boutique service. Some clinics charge extras which have to be covered separately and which you may not anticipate in advance. More on Costs.
Ideal Rehab Location
Finding the best rehab programme for issues and mental health problems caused by alcohol is vital to long-term success. But where close or far? Every addiction client is different. However, most therapists often recommend that removing addicts 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 Edinburgh.
