Starting the rehab process

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: First stop is GP. Ask to be referred for both counselling sessions for your schizophrenia/addiction and to a local drug and alcohol team nearest to you in Edinburgh. Although NHS resources are limited, it is still possible to receive funding for treatment.

Private rehab Process
Self-funding: you can self refer. This means you can literally call and book, or simply turn up with a credit card to your alcohol drug rehabilitation centre of choice. 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 Merchiston. 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 addicts etc.
  5. You are then possibly assigned a therapist or support worker/nurse locally in Edinburgh
  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 clients

Everyone is very friendly. The staff in Edinburgh 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 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.

What Are The Success Rates? "Compared to going it alone, patients who attend rehab are 5 times more likely to recover"

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Tailored Treatment: Private clinics in Edinburgh tend to use a bespoke treatment model rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Many alcoholics have co-occurring issues like eating disorders or self harm or stress disorders. Addiction is often seen as a response to inner turmoil.

  2. 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.

How long does rehab take?

The duration of your alcohol drug rehabilitation centre 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
  • long-term residential treatment: 90 days
  • NHS funded treatment, non private: 3months - 1 year
  • Long term Outpatient treatment (including treatment for alcohol: 130 days
  • More.

A 'normal' 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 bitcoin, food, 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 Merchiston as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave my alcohol drug rehabilitation centre? 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.

Ideal location for treatment

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

Every patient is different. However, most psychologists often recommend that removing alcoholics 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.
