Guide to getting help

Wherever you live in Edinburgh or Scotland, there is the perfect drug rehab centre that can help you beat your addiction. We'll help you find it.

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 OCD/Obsessive 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 OCD/Obsessive 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 obsessive compulsive disorder (cod) treatment 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 Drylaw. 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 patients

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.

A 'normal' day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and OCD/Obsessive/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 shopping, sex or love.


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

Can I leave my obsessive compulsive disorder (cod) treatment? 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 OCD/Obsessive/mental health difficulties is vital to long-term success. But where, close or far?

Every alcoholic/addict is different. However, most counsellors often recommend that removing alcoholics/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.

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. 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.
