When To Consider Addiction Treatment Through A Drug Rehab?

If you’re currently hoping to recover from a drug addiction, please be reassured that there are a number of different rehabilitation programmes, all offering various degrees of addiction treatment. Many users believe that drug rehab can only be visited once a chronic fixation is present. This however is incorrect, deviating significantly from the range of treatment options available. With this in mind, no matter how strong your dependence on drugs may be, professional treatment services are available.

The most important factor to gauge the appropriateness of timing for drug rehab is your readiness to recover. Completing a drug rehab programme can be challenging. There are many barriers to surpass, especially when withdrawal symptoms appear. With this in mind, it is imperative that you’re ready to combat those barriers throughout your rehab journey.

Rehab is one of the only treatment options which offers honest and realistic opportunities to reach addiction recovery. By embracing its recovery-designed steps, drug rehab can motivate worthwhile results. The more effort you instil within your recovery process, the greater chance you’ll have to overcome your drug addiction at rehab and beyond.

Addiction Treatments Available Through Scottish Rehab

When visiting our drug rehab facility, you will have access to our leading addiction treatments. As touched on above, you will experience a range of addiction treatments which target your physical and psychological dependence on drugs. Treatment options do vary depending on the severity of your addiction, and whether you require inpatient or outpatient care.

Expected drug addiction treatment in our Scottish rehab includes a drug detox programme, group therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, support groups and relapse prevention sessions. This combination is a common foundational treatment programme for all clients, along with further suitable treatment options to promote recovery.

Please be mindful that treatment options may vary, along with timeframes. Many individuals will achieve addiction recovery after 28 days at drug rehab. This however may differ for you to fit your personal needs. Yet, the general consensus is that through our treatment services, recovery is likely, no matter the time frame.

What Drugs We Treat

We treat all drug addictions here at our rehabilitation facility. Some people class certain drug addictions more dangerous than others. We know more people die each year from heroin addiction compared to cannabis use. But all drug addictions can be dangerous and have dreadful consequences at some point in time.

  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Sleeping Pills
  • Painkillers
  • Meth
  • Amphetamines
  • Ecstasy
  • Cannabis

How To Identify A Drug Addiction

If you’ve been abusing drugs for some time, your judgment may be clouded. You may struggle to understand the severity of your drug consumption. In tandem, many onlookers will categorise all drug users into the addiction box, making it hard to identify if mild drug abuse or an embedded addiction is present.

Of course, if drug consumption does continue, where high quantities are used to surpass tolerances, there is great potential for drug addiction to develop. However, for an addiction to develop, both a physical and psychological connection to drugs must be present. Without a mental fixation, consumption will reflect substance abuse or drug dependence.

Yet, it’s important to remember that no matter how your drug consumption impacts you, substance abuse shouldn’t be taken lightly. Any form of drug abuse can cause hazardous, long-lasting damages; with a large focus on physical and mental health.

The most important step you can take to avoid a future of deterioration is by understanding and acknowledging your drug addiction while completing a suitable treatment programme. If you’re struggling to stop abusing drugs, suffer from chronic withdrawal symptoms, experience mental health issues commonly associated with drug consumption and believe drugs are controlling your life, visiting a drug rehab should be your next step.

Why Visit A Private Drug Rehab Centre?

When looking to recover from addiction, it is advised that you visit a private drug rehabilitation centre. Although a majority of individuals will initially attempt to recover either alone or through free treatment services, completing immediate and consistent addiction treatment is the most effective route to take; only available through drug rehab.

By opting for cheaper, lower-quality addiction treatment, sessions will be sparse, reducing the likelihood of progression. It’s important to remember that addiction is a habitual behaviour which has been formed over time. To diminish this habit, highly targeted treatment will be required. This level of addiction treatment can only be sourced through a drug rehab facility; like ours here at Nova Recovery.

It’s also important to consider your health and safety while recovering. Completing the likes of a drug detox programme can influence chronic withdrawal symptoms. With this in mind, it is imperative that you complete medically assisted, recovery-driven treatment options, prioritising your health and safety.

To truly combat drug addiction, the completion of a wide range of addiction treatments will be required. This is down to the physical and psychological fixation present with drugs. With this in mind, visiting a drug rehab and completing a comprehensive treatment programme will ensure that this degree and variation of treatments will be available.

For your best opportunity to recover, consider visiting a private drug rehab facility, no matter the attached rehab cost or time frame.

Although you may feel that this damage is now set for your future, that long-term recovery is unrealistic, and that drug rehab won’t work, there is professional help to support you. Whether you’ve abused prescription drugs or illegal substances, here at Nova Recovery, we can help you through our sought-after treatment programmes and drug rehab plans.
