Oxgangs

Edinburgh/Oxgangs/EH13

Alcoholism affects people of any race, sex, and class in Scotland. If you have a problem with alcohol or drugs, 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 12-step facility with talking therapy, counselling and expertise in addiction is also medically recommended. Keeping the alcoholic apart from alcohol and all the triggers associated with acting out can mean hospitalisation or detox centre is the best solution. Not admitting to a drinking problem (denial) can often be an effective barrier to getting help for addicts.

Other mental illnesses include anxiety disorders like generalised anxiety disorder, mood disorders/postnatal depression, psychotic disorders like suffering from delusions and eating disorders.

The process of getting into rehab

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: Your GP in Oxgangs is a good place to start. They can discuss your alcohol or drugs problems with you and help get you the right abstinence recovery clinic in Edinburgh.

Private rehab Process
Skip The Waiting List. Self-funding: you can self refer. This means literally call or turn up at your detox centre 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 Oxgangs. 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 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 alcoholics

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 or drugs/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "99% of alcoholics/addicts from the Castle Craig addiction treatment programme stated that when they arrived on site, numerous staff made them feel welcome for treating alcohol or drugs issues"

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 clients have co-occurring issues like personality disorders or past traumas or abuse. Addiction is often seen as a response to inner turmoil.

    The ability to custom tailor a treatment plan enables clinic staff to achieve maximum benefits from every therapy chosen. Remember time is limited to 28-days if you have health insurance.

    Every patient receiving treatment at a UK residential facility is part of a group that is constantly in one another presence, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  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.

"Rehab gave me a new lease on life. The experience allowed me to pull my soul out of the dark abyss that was my drug addiction. I am deeply grateful to everyone who played a role in my recovery. Really enjoy having a place to go to if things get bad again." Cheyenne May 2019 Morval

Why rehab might not work:

  • Lack of 12 step programme
  • Co-occurring disorders such as mood disorders and body dysmorphic disorders are not identified
  • See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?

Patients are usually admitted into treatment at a private clinic or hospital from four weeks to 6 months, depending on the severity of the addiction. The best results are achieved when people stay in treatment for at least 12 weeks. Detox can take place before admission or on arrival alongside other therapies. More.

The Perfect Rehab Location

Finding the best rehab programme for alcohol or drugs/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 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.
