Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Scotland

According to the Scottish Government the average adult in Scotland drinks over a third more than the UK-wide lower-risk guidelines of 14 units per week. Drinking is culturally normalised but for many, it can become a serious problem, as can the abuse of illegal and prescription drugs.

There were at least 1,136 alcohol-specific deaths and 1,187 drug-related deaths in Scotland in 2018 but substance abuse does not have to lead to death to be harmful. As the Government also points out: “Higher risk alcohol use and problematic drug use are significant issues in Scotland, causing damage to people’s lives, families and communities, and contributing to violence and crime.”

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programmes

Detox is a crucial part of recovery but beating an addiction is a long-term, ongoing process. An effective rehab programme will help you to get the toxic substance out of your system and help you to deal with the immediate fallout. Beyond that, it will also equip you with the knowledge, strategies and skills you need to remain clean or sober once you leave our hospital.

This could involve a range of therapy types such as group therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy, as well as one to one counselling. Dealing with root causes, examining triggers and understanding addiction can all help you to deal with cravings, relapses and other issues that can recur once you return to your normal life.

Drug and Alcohol Detox

One of the most difficult and potentially dangerous steps in tackling an addiction is getting the substance out of your system and dealing with the immediate after-effects. This is a process known as detox or detoxification.

Detox can be extremely difficult to do without help. The withdrawal process can lead to severe physical and psychological symptoms as the body gets rid of the harmful substances. Addicts undergoing withdrawal may suffer pain, stress and extreme discomfort.

Many find it difficult to stay the course, especially when going ‘cold turkey’ alone. Detoxing without medical assistance or expert supervision can be dangerous and is far less likely to succeed.

We can offer 24-hour care and supervision during this vital stage of recovery. The process of detox can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of substance involved and the length and severity of addiction. We also recognise that many people may be struggling with addictions to more than one substance.

We never forget that everyone struggling with these issues is an individual. All our programmes are specifically tailored to help the individual and to give you the best chance to kick your dependency for good.
