The feelings that drugs and alcohol induce are extremely addictive. Once consumption is normalised, it can be very difficult to withdraw from their effects. As both tap into the reward circuit, the positives of consumption can engulf a user, making them tolerate the lows of addiction.

Whilst regularly consuming drugs and alcohol, changes are expected to the body and brain, including a personal tolerance. As consumption is fuelled, those changes will make it harder to quit alcohol or drugs, for most making withdrawal an impossible goal.

Drug and alcohol withdrawal can however be possible with professional and medical help. Delivered through drug and alcohol rehab, various treatments and therapies can be worked through to encourage withdrawal. Sessions are also arranged to restore the body and brain and teach clients how to cope through absenteeism.

Addiction treatment help

Without intervention, treatment, and management, addiction is a relapsing condition. For those with an untreated drug or alcohol problem, internal and external changes which are experienced through substance abuse can make it difficult to break away and reverse the effects of consumption.

As drugs and alcohol are also normalised and heavily promoted, attempting to withdraw and recover whilst surrounded by them can be highly influential and disruptive.

Breaking away, withdrawing, and recovering will therefore be recommended through rehab. Offering the advice, tools, treatments and therapies to withdraw, rehab is professionally led. An escape from drugs, alcohol and their influences is also available, by checking into private rehab for a safe, progressive, and positive experience.

Finding and checking into a CQC drug and alcohol rehab in Ballater will offer this type of recovery experience, providing the chance to overcome their addictiveness. Addiction treatment help can be personalised to meet your needs, available in a wealth of effective forms through rehab.


How does rehab work?

Rehab is an accredited service which recommends a range of evidence-based, holistic, and mental health treatments. Treatment sessions are bespoke, delivering safe and effective forms whilst considering individual needs.

Professional advice and support is also directly available through private rehab, offered by a highly qualified team of addiction, mental health, and nursing experts. You can expect a reassuring experience whilst investing into a CQC registered rehab clinic.

Our drug and alcohol addiction recovery hospital offers both clinical yet comfortable facilities to our clients. By opting for inpatient rehab, a safe space will be formed, standing as a meeting point, an escape, and a community.

Via a private drug and alcohol rehab in Ballater, a personalised programme will be ready for you after completing a confidential and quick admissions process. From here, a 28-day programme will unfold, offering 24/7 support and progress through inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Alternatively, an outpatient treatment programme can be arranged, completed, and funded on the NHS. Yet due to waiting lists, delays are expected, along with additional obstacles, found to make progress difficult to come by.

Before pressing ahead with your admission, you should compare your available treatment options to make sure that your needs are accommodated. At Nova Recovery, we can help you by providing the most beneficial and suitable rehab programme for your needs and circumstances.


What happens during drug and alcohol rehab?

Drug and alcohol rehab is broken up into necessary and bespoke steppingstones. Necessary steps help to promote drug and alcohol withdrawal, rebuild and long-term planning. Bespoke steps help to improve wellbeing, quality of life, and mental health. Various addiction treatments and therapies will be recommended throughout each step of the rehab process.

To plan a 28-day residential treatment programme, assessments and observations will firstly be made. Treatment sessions will then follow, working alongside a dedicated team of addiction professionals.

The withdrawal process will be the first step, offering a medically safe and accredited treatment. Via a drug and alcohol rehab in Ballater, the most suitable environment will be provided, to comfortably work through withdrawal symptoms. Medical intervention and prescription medications will be available to ease the detoxification step.

Addiction therapy will be the next focus of rehab, offering support with coping and emotional control. Our sessions are formed to improve mental health, boost accountability, and to also support loved ones and friends. Individual therapy sessions are recommended, along with group and family arrangements.

Long-term planning is the final necessary step of rehab, providing our clients with the tools to excel on a post-rehab basis. Our treatment plans include relapse prevention sessions, educational services, and support with lifestyle management. Goal setting will also be promoted, as will the chance to make some positive changes, to carry forward post-rehab.

Bespoke treatment sessions will work into the above steps, making sure that individual symptoms, responses, and triggers can be addressed. Our treatment programmes follow a holistic approach here at Nova Recovery to increase the likelihood of recovery. We also specialise in mental health treatment, helping those with mental health conditions or dual diagnosis.

How long is rehab?

Some clients will however require additional treatment, prolonging their rehab programme. Programmes will always be accommodating of availability and will follow with 12 months of aftercare in Ballater.

Outpatient treatment is flexible yet is organised over a 6-month timeline. As it is a longer process, progress and motivation can be challenging to maintain.

Private rehab can cost between £3,000 and £10,000, ranging across treatment providers and programmes. Factors such as location, the severity of an addiction and the type of treatment that’s completed can also impact the cost of rehab.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is medically-assisted detox?

Withdrawal is a very dangerous process. Therefore, medically-assisted detox is a course of physical addiction treatment implemented at the rehabilitation centres we refer clients to. As the name suggests, medically-assisted detox sees a person experiencing withdrawal receive medical treatment in order to manage any side-effects that the alcohol detox and/or drug detox causes them to present with. The medication the patient receives will be carefully prescribed depending upon their medical history as well as the addiction which they are presently overcoming.

How do I access drug and alcohol rehab in Kinghorn?

Nova Recovery treatment services are ready and waiting to help you get set up in our state-of-the-art drug and alcohol rehab centre so that you can start overcoming your drug and/or alcohol addiction through the best possible addiction treatments.

However, one of the hardest things that an addict can do is actually reach out for help when they need it most. Admitting that you have an issue is never easy, but the fact that you are here suggests that you have already made this admission to yourself. The next step is to pick up the phone or even send us a message, only then can we help you get the assistance you need.

Does rehab work?

Professional rehabilitation works in a multitude of different ways. The blend of physical and psychological addiction treatment alongside being in an environment that is detached from your normal day-to-day life are all critical to how rehab works.

However, for rehabilitation to truly work, you must be prepared to make necessary changes to yourself. If you’re ready to change your life to overcome your addiction, then drug and alcohol rehab will work for you.
