Outpatient Treatment Options in Locharbriggs

Living with an addiction is difficult.

It can consume your time, energy and money to keep it going. It can leave you physically and mentally exhausted just to live your normal life.

It is easy to feel as though this is all your life will ever be. Like addiction has its claws in you, and no matter how hard you try, you will never be rid of it.

This is simply not true.

Yes, addiction can be difficult to overcome, but it is more than doable if you are willing to accept help.

The first way you can seek treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction in Locharbriggs is through outpatient treatment.

Outpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment is very simply a treatment where you travel for each session. This allows you to plan it around your life and can be very helpful for people who can’t take time away from their treatments, for example, someone with childcare responsibilities.

It can be very helpful to still access your treatments without ignoring your normal life.

The main sources of outpatient treatments are support groups and NHS rehab services.

Support groups such as alcoholics anonymous and narcotics anonymous hold meetings across the country, including in Locharbriggs. You can find local meetings at the Grangemouth Sports Complex. There’s no need to book in, all you have to do is show up, and everything will be handled from there.

You can also seek help from the NHS, which will help you access their treatments by securing a formal addiction diagnosis so that you can receive treatment from them.

While outpatient treatment is good, you should remember that it isn’t for everyone. It does have its drawbacks.

For example, one of the biggest issues with outpatient treatment is that you will still have access to drugs and alcohol as you won’t have anyone to keep you away. While support groups do offer sponsorship programs that give you someone to offer you support, they can’t keep you away from temptation.

It all falls on your shoulders to make good decisions.

That is why many people find that the best treatment option you have is to seek help from a private inpatient drug and alcohol rehab centre. You will receive all your treatments in the centre’s security and be kept from all drugs and alcohol.


How to Seek Treatment for Addiction

You can start your journey to long-term recovery by contacting your local GP to discuss your addiction.

From there, you can make an appointment to see a local hospital specialist who can give you an official diagnosis. With a diagnosis, you will be able to access treatments.

The issue, however, is that the NHS simply does not have enough resources for everyone who needs it. So you will be placed on a waiting list for weeks, maybe even months, while you wait for a spot to open up.

Alternatively, if you prefer to access private drug and alcohol addiction treatment, you only need to call us at 01475 303998. We are Nova Recovery, a company that provides private drug and alcohol rehab in Scotland.

Accessing our treatments is as simple as calling us up and completing a quick 20-minute pre-admission assessment, where a member of our admissions team ensures we can cater to your specific needs. Following this, you must pay a deposit for your treatments and then book to start your stay at your earliest convenience.

We are even able to arrange your transportation from Locharbriggs to our facility.

We can offer you a welcoming and safe environment for you to take the time you need to overcome your addiction.


Is Travelling for Residential Rehab Worthwhile?

It is not uncommon for people to feel a bit put off by the idea of having to travel away from home for medical treatment. It can add gravity to the situation as you are essentially saying goodbye to your old life and taking steps to embrace a new healthier one.

Residential rehab gives you one of the best opportunities to break your cycle of addiction by taking you away from what is familiar and fully immersing yourself in your treatments.

By travelling for residential rehab, you fully embrace this idea by putting your treatments above all else. You can avoid limiting yourself by just relying on what help you have locally.

Twenty-eight days seem like a long time to be away for rehab, but it is worth it so that you can get through all of your treatments. Treatments that would be dragged out even longer if you were to go for the outpatient option.

Inpatient rehab treatment has proven time and again to be the best option available to you and anyone living with an addiction. It can allow you to make your life recover for almost a month and experience all of your treatments one after the other.


Addictions We Treat

How We Treat Drug and Alcohol Addiction

We treat alcohol addiction by moving you to the detox wing to receive your detox treatment. The detox is designed to help your body rid itself of all alcohol in its system safely.

This must be done carefully, as you will experience withdrawal symptoms ranging from headaches to hallucinations. Because of this, you will be monitored by the medical team.

Following the detox, you will move on to therapy, where you will learn how to manage your addiction and avoid the triggers of your cravings.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is life like after rehab?

Making the adjustment back into your everyday life post-rehab can seem like it will be an overwhelming experience at first — and this is a perfectly natural thing to be experiencing. However, as mentioned above, with the help of an aftercare programme that Nova Recovery will have sorted for you, you will be able to reach out to a professional support worker if you ever feel at risk of relapsing. The first twelve months after finishing rehab are crucial in terms of a long term recovery, which makes aftercare all the more important.

How long does rehab last?

Different treatment plans can have differing durations as is to be expected. Often the severity of the addiction that you are trying to overcome can impact the lengths of time your treatment will last for as well as whether you are engaged with an inpatient or outpatient treatment programme. However, most of the treatment plans that we recommend for people overcoming addiction last for around 28 days.

What is Dual Diagnosis?

Dual diagnosis is when mental health and addiction issues happen concurrently. The conditions are separate but often they interact and impact one another. When it comes to treating addiction, the mental health issues must be dealt with as well to better the odds of maintaining sobriety long-term.
