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 alcohol 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 alcohol 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 alcohol rehabilitation 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 Wester Hailes. 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?

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 eating disorders or body dysmorphic disorders. 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.

  2. Tailored Treatment: Private clinics in Edinburgh tend to use a bespoke treatment model rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Many addicts have co-occurring issues like agoraphobia ADHD or ADD or bipolar disorder. 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.

"Rehab has supported us all the way. They really listened to us parents and were very sensitive and compassionate in hearing what we had to say. Am sober." Blaze March 2016 Edinburgh

Why rehab might not work:

  • Absence of dual diagnosis residential treatment
  • Rehab is too close to home in Wester Hailes

The best Rehab Location

Finding the best rehab programme for alcohol difficulties is vital to long-term success. But where close or far? Every patient is different. However, most consultants often recommend that removing alcoholics/addicts 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.

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.
