Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Forfar
Forfar, the county town of Angus is easily accessible from Dundee and Aberdeen. However, the close proximity to these bustling cities has meant that substances are also easy to access. Every area in the UK has issues with drug and alcohol use, and Forfar is no different.
Whether it’s you or a loved one in the grips of addiction, we want you to know that it doesn’t have to be that way.
Classified as a medical condition with substantial physical and psychological effects, often the only way to properly treat drug or alcohol addiction is to go to drug or alcohol rehab. Here, you’ll be supported to combat physical addiction as well as any emotional addictions.
Talking therapy, art therapy and psychological therapies will help you get to the root cause of your addiction, identify any triggers, and build you up to walk away from them with new and healthier choices.
Another reason to choose rehab is that you’ll be supported through a detox. You might have already tried this at home, or maybe you’ve heard about complex side effects. Unfortunately, few detoxes when carried out at home work, but in rehab, you’ll have a team of professionals around you who know what they’re doing.
They’ll monitor you regularly and can also prescribe medication to help deal with painful withdrawal symptoms. A medically safe and assisted detox is essential for starting treatment and a massive step towards your new life.
Rehab can seem like a serious choice. But, let us tell you, if you’re serious about living a life away from addiction, it’s the best choice. Don’t worry if you’ve got any questions or want to know if rehab is right for you, as our team is always here to help.
Our Rehab Programme
Nova Recovery offers private residential rehab treatment for alcohol dependency, drug dependency and stress-related mental health issues. That includes therapy for anxiety, depression, PTSD and OCD. Based on the Scottish coast, our leading unit has access to a wide range of therapies and treatments, state-of-the-art facilities, and an expert team who is professional, friendly and trustworthy.
You might be wondering why you should choose private rehab – this decision is personal to you, and only you can decide. Private rehab is used to describe inpatient rehab as it isn’t usually offered on the NHS.
Those that attend private residential rehab are required to stay on-site for the whole duration of their treatment. Outpatient plans, on the other hand, allow individuals to return home.
It’s believed that private inpatient rehab has the best success rates as you can focus on your recovery, away from distractions. Just like other private medical settings, the facilities and overall care are believed to be of a better quality too.
When you choose Nova Recovery, you’ll get your own private room, all meals taken care of and additional services and well-being activities designed to help you create a healthier version of yourself. You’re also encouraged to get out into our beautiful grounds in your spare time as research shows that nature and your surroundings can greatly impact your recovery.
Often people are worried about being away from home and their loved ones. However, at Nova Recovery, we try to include your friends and family as much as possible – whether it’s through regular visits or family therapy. This is to give you the necessary support and allow them to understand exactly what you’re going through.
How Long Does Rehab Last?
This is one of the most common questions, alongside how much rehab costs. The length of rehab depends on a few things – mainly the centre you choose, whether you’re an inpatient or outpatient and how well you respond. Again, rehab costs depend on a few factors, including how long you stay, whether a detox is required and the centre itself.
Typically though, inpatient stays at Nova Recovery last for 28 days – even though we do have shorter ones available. We believe 28 days is the optimum length to give you everything you need for recovery, now and long-term.
Admissions Process to Rehab in Forfar
We know that choosing to come to rehab is a huge decision. You’re likely feeling scared, anxious or even confused. For this reason, we do everything we can to make the whole process easy. This starts with admissions. Whether you’re getting in touch with yourself, a loved one or even a colleague, it just takes an initial inquiry.
We’ll ask some questions to understand the situation better and then outline the options. A pre-admission screening will take place to ensure suitability, and any questions you may have will be answered.
With a centre agreed, all we ask is a deposit to secure the place, and then a date for arrival will be agreed upon. Don’t worry if you’re feeling scared on the day of arrival as you’re not alone. You’re making the best decision for your future, and everyone around you just wants the best for you.
After being shown around, your care plan will be explained, and then it’s time to get ready to start your journey to recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is inpatient treatment like?
Inpatient treatment, due to the fact that you reside full-time at the place where you are receiving treatment, is a very intensive form of treatment. You will receive around-the-clock medical care from the comfort of a top-quality private bedroom. We will also provide you with three home-cooked nutritious meals prepared by our kitchen staff each day, as well as constant support.
How do I begin my addiction recovery?
Beginning your journey of recovery starts by admitting to yourself that you have a problem with addiction and that you need professional help. Once you have made the realisation that professional addiction treatment will get you back to living the life that you want to live then all you need to do is reach out to our admissions team here at Nova Recovery. We will find the best treatment plan for you and get you on your way to a life of sobriety.
What is life like after rehab?
Life after rehab can be very difficult at first as it is a big transition to make. In residential rehab, you are surrounded by constant support in a comfortable and safe facility, which is often unlike your home environment. This is why we offer 12 months of free aftercare to ensure that you continue to be supported.
