Drug And Alcohol Rehab Options

When you first contact us, you’ll speak to a member of our friendly admissions team. They’ll ask you questions about your addiction, such as how long you’ve been taking drugs or alcohol, the levels and frequency, and how your habit affects your life. Don’t hold back. Make sure you tell us everything you can about your addiction so we can recommend a treatment plan to suit you.

The idea of leaving home daunts many people, but our Bishopbriggs clinic is a tranquil sanctuary designed to offer you maximum comfort in rehab. As an inpatient, you’ll have your own bedroom. We’ll provide you with healthy meals, expert help, daily counselling and therapeutic activities such as yoga and reiki to help heal your mind and body.

There are many benefits to being an inpatient. Firstly, you’ll be living away from home and breaking your old routine. Being away from the temptations of drugs or alcohol gives you a better chance of recovery.

Some patients prefer to seek treatment miles away from where they live as they want complete anonymity and a change of scene.

As an inpatient, you’ll benefit from 24-hour care. Staff are always on hand, even in the middle of the night, if you want a chat. You’ll also be living with other recovering addicts, and this is a great learning experience.

Patients enjoy the support they find in each other, with some even becoming lifelong friends, bonded by a shared experience.

Another benefit of the inpatient experience is that you can access daily counselling, support groups, and therapeutic activities such as art therapy, and meditation. Our staff are addiction experts and the best in their field. Our expert team consists of doctors, addiction specialists, nurses and support staff.

Some patients choose to become an outpatient, where they live at home but visit the centre daily for treatment—this type of treatment suits people with mild addictions or those with family or work commitments.


Can I Get Treatment In Bishopbriggs?

We run a private drug and alcohol rehab centre in Bishopbriggs. As we are a private facility that offers bespoke care, it costs money, but prices vary. Please call us to discuss typical costs. Tell us about your budget, and we’ll recommend a treatment programme that matches your finances.

East Dunbartonshire Council provides free drug and alcohol addiction treatment through their community rehabilitation service.


Do I Need To Travel To Go To Rehab?

Our drug and alcohol rehab centre is ideally located if you live near Glasgow. We’re just a short car journey from Glasgow, and direct trains take just seven minutes to Bishopbriggs. If you’re travelling by train, a staff member will welcome you at the train station and take you to our centre.

If you don’t want to travel, you can receive treatment at home as an outpatient. Outpatient treatment is only recommended for low-level addictions, and for people when an inpatient stay isn’t practical.


How Long Does Alcohol Rehab Take?

Alcohol and drug rehab can last from a few weeks to three months. You’ll need a longer stay if you’ve been drinking alcohol or using drugs for years. You could be with us for a few weeks for a shorter and less severe addiction.

Long-term recovery lasts a lifetime, way beyond the limits of our rehab centre. We recommend you attend weekly recovery groups such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) to help you stay alcohol-free.


What Drug Addictions Do You Treat?

At Nova Recovery, we treat a range of drug addictions, as well as alcohol addictions:

  • Cocaine and crack
  • Heroin
  • Cannabis
  • Crystal Meth
  • A range of prescription drugs
  • Ecstasy
  • Painkillers
  • Sleeping pills
  • Amphetamines


What Happens In Private Rehab?

Most, if not all of our patients, complete a drug or alcohol detox when they first arrive at the centre. The withdrawal process isn’t sudden; it’s gradual and controlled, supervised by doctors and qualified addiction specialists.

Detox is difficult on your mind and body, but you won’t be alone. You’ll likely feel ill when detoxing, as your body is getting rid of toxins.

When you’ve finished detox, you’ll participate in daily counselling and support groups. Counselling, such as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), looks at your feelings, thoughts and actions concerning addiction and gives you tools to cope in the future.

Every activity at rehab focuses on your long-term recovery. You’ll learn ways to manage your mental and physical health and learn coping strategies when you leave rehab.

We can guide and signpost you to relevant support organisations if you need help with life skills and finding employment or housing. For patients who need further assistance with managing a mental health diagnosis, we’ll liaise with your doctor or health professionals, so we’re working on the same page.

People often feel nervous when it’s time to leave rehab and return to their everyday lives. We offer a fantastic aftercare programme, so you still access support when you leave us.

You can participate in support groups and counselling sessions near where you live, fitting them in with work and family commitments. And if you’re struggling, our dedicated helpline is there for you 24 hours a day.

If you’re ready to take control of your life, call us on 01475 303998. We’re here for you any time of day or night.


Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of inpatient drug rehab?

There are many benefits to inpatient drug rehab. The rehab provides a safe and comfortable environment where you can recover. This puts you away from all of your usual triggers at home and makes it much easier for you to stay away from the substance that you’re addicted to. You will also have access to prescribed medication, if needed, to help you cope with the withdrawal symptoms during the detox stage. Additionally, you will have access to aftercare services to help you continue with your recovery after leaving the rehab facility.

Are there free options for alcohol addiction help?

You can get some free help for alcohol addictions. There are several charities that offer free advice and counselling for those struggling with alcohol addictions. There are also some NHS rehab positions. However, these tend to be very high in demand and have very long waiting lists. If you want the best alcohol addiction treatment possible, it’s recommended that you choose a reputable rehab centre that can provide the treatment that you specifically need.

What are the most common treatments for addiction?

Detoxification, rehabilitation, individual therapy, group therapy, relapse prevention and aftercare are among the most common treatments for addiction. As addictions often coexist with mental health disorders, dual diagnosis is also a common treatment. However, it should be noted that for these treatments to be effective, they must be personalised to your needs.
