How Do I Access Rehab In Kirkintilloch?
Our drug and alcohol rehab clinic is located in the historical town of Kirkintilloch, in East Dunbartonshire, Scotland. The centre is just eight miles from Glasgow.
If you live in East Dunbartonshire and don’t want to complete your treatment too far from home, staying at our Kirkintilloch clinic is ideal. You’ll likely stay in rehab as an inpatient for an average of 28 days, but people stay anything from a few weeks to three months – it all depends on their addiction.
What Local Drug Services Are There?
You can access your local NHS drug services if you live near or in Kirkintilloch. Your nearest service is run by East Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership, and you can find more information on their website.
There’s also a voluntary service based in Kirkintilloch called Arc (Addiction Recovery Service), run by volunteers. These services support people suffering from alcohol and drug addiction and their families by offering drop-ins, wellbeing activities and outpatient care.
What is The Difference Between Private Rehab and Community Drug Services in Kirkintilloch?
There are big differences in the type of drug services you can access in Kirkintilloch. With private rehab, you live at the centre as an outpatient for up to a few months. If you use community drug services, you’ll access them as an outpatient. This means you’ll visit the centre every day, or a few times a week, and return home in the evening.
Most community drug services don’t provide a drug detox and will often help you detox safely at home, but only if you have a mild addiction. All private drug and alcohol rehab clinics offer drug detox. You’ll be supervised by professionals who make you feel as comfortable as possible by monitoring withdrawal symptoms.
Waiting lists for community drug services tend to be long, whereas you can start private rehab at short notice.
Do You Need To Pay For Private Treatment?
Private treatment isn’t free, but it’s an excellent investment in your future. Many people who arrive at private rehab have used free, local drug services, but it didn’t work for them.
On average, 28 days at rehab costs up to £7,000, so that’s around £1,500 weekly. The costs cover a comprehensive package, including:
- A medically supervised detox
- Daily counselling and therapy
- Group therapy
- Your own luxury bedroom
- Complementary therapies
- 24-hour support
- Freshly cooked, nutritious meals
- Up to 12 months of free aftercare to support you when you leave rehab.
The costs can usually be spread using a payment plan, which is more affordable than paying the whole amount upfront.
What Happens In Rehab?
Everyone’s experience in rehab is different, and treatment plans are tailored to each individual. We don’t use a blanket approach when it comes to treatment plans, and we’ll work with you to create a bespoke programme so you get the care you need to beat your addiction.
Your time in rehab is geared to your recovery. You’ll spend a large chunk of your time in therapy, and by that, we mean counselling with a qualified psychotherapist who specialises in addiction.
As well as individual therapy, you’ll take part in support groups. Support groups are led by a counsellor who guides every patient to speak about their experience of addiction.
Patients are initially wary of talking to strangers about their private lives but soon start to understand the therapeutic nature of sharing their stories with fellow patients in recovery.
Nova Recovery’s treatment model focuses significantly on patients’ mental health, as we believe mental health difficulties come hand-in-hand with addiction. Our team comprises psychiatrists, nurses and addiction specialists who are mental health and addiction experts.
Like many addicts, you may drink or take drugs to numb your feelings and forget about your problems. Drug and alcohol use can cause depression, anxiety, anger and paranoia, and in some cases, bipolar and schizophrenia.
You may have been struggling with a mental health condition before you started abusing drink and drugs, and it’s worsened over time. Can you relate to this?
Our specialists could diagnose you with a mental health condition when you’re with us, which could surprise you, but we’ll explain your diagnosis in a way that’s easy to understand. We may prescribe appropriate medication and create a treatment plan such as dual diagnosis treatment to help you feel your best.
Despite a busy timetable, you’ll still have free time to catch up on activities you enjoy, whether that’s reading, relaxing or exercising. Our organised activities vary between centres but tend to include: meditation, fitness and dance classes, mindfulness and art classes.
How Long Will I Need To Stay In Rehab?
Most patients stay with us for a month on average. The time you stay in rehab depends on your addiction and your needs. Some patients come to us wanting to shake off a long-standing habit. They may have been addicted to drugs and alcohol for years.
In this case, they would stay anything for up to three months. Others arrive battling a short but intense addiction, and they may remain for a few weeks or a month.
It’s a condition of stay that all patients complete a detox when they arrive at a rehab centre. A detox lasts one to two weeks and is monitored by trained professionals. For real healing to start, you need to rid your body of toxins built up throughout your addiction.
