Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Here at Nova Recovery, we recognise the importance of drug and alcohol rehab clinics as vital treatment centres for those in need. While Scotland has the same drug laws as the rest of the UK, it has more drug deaths than any European country. The Scottish government are providing additional funding for drug and alcohol rehab programmes and residential rehab to help with these problems.

Addiction Treatment Options
Whilst there are options to receive addiction treatment through free local health services, these government-funded schemes are very limited and generally don’t provide effective treatment. With such complex disorders such as alcohol and drug addiction, many people find better results from specialist intervention at a private residential rehab. Our drug and alcohol rehab Methil provides continuous care through detoxification, psychological and wellbeing therapies, help with underlying addictive behaviours, and any mental health issues.
Choosing the right treatment centre for you is an important decision. What works for one person, might not necessarily work for you and your personal circumstances. As we mentioned, addiction treatment is available with free local health services; it’s important to note that the majority of these treatment programmes are offered as outpatient rehab rather than residential. In our experience, people with have been struggling with addictions for a short period and have milder symptoms benefit more from this free service. Whereas a long-term sufferer from addiction will likely have more complex issues, leaving them feeling hopeless; this is where free addiction treatment won’t likely be suitable.
When it comes to private drug and alcohol rehab, you’ll be welcomed into the rehab clinic within 48 hours of contacting our friendly admissions team. This timeframe is actually very important to the success of your rehabilitation as it prevents you from having too much time to rethink your decision. You’ll also benefit from an addiction specialist team who are more familiar with the 12-step process and with the effects you’re experiencing from alcohol and drug addiction.
Inpatient rehab in Fife
Taking the first step on your recovery journey can be a very challenging time, particularly as it seems as though there are a lot of important decisions to be made at the beginning. At our drug and alcohol rehab Methil, we have an excellent team of addiction specialists who are happy to talk through the various addiction treatment options and therapies available to help you make the best decision.
After you’ve chosen to receive addiction treatment through free local health services or with a private drug and alcohol rehab, you’ll then need to choose between inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab. With residential rehab, you’ll stay overnight at our rehab centre until you’ve completed your alcohol and drug addiction programme. Whereas if you choose to receive treatment as an outpatient, you’ll stay at home throughout your treatment whilst visiting each day to receive your therapy sessions.
Whilst studies show that inpatient rehab generates a higher rate of successful long-term recoveries, this isn’t to say that it’s the best option for you. You must look at all of the factors before deciding which is more suitable for your unique circumstances. Residential drug rehab is likely to produce more successful recoveries because you benefit from a recovery-focused environment with 24/7 support from a team of experts. This motivating environment may not be realistic to achieve at home if you choose outpatient rehab. Unfortunately, many people feel as though their home environment is a negative space full of distractions and stresses which could deter away from their recovery.
Drug and alcohol relapse prevention
We will recommend the most beneficial therapy sessions for each individual. Although every addiction treatment programme is personalised, there are some highly recommended psychological therapies that we frequently deliver. These include counselling, stress management cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychotherapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, and relapse prevention.
Relapse prevention is a very important therapy session you will undertake, as this will be challenged as you return home to an enviroment you have lived in with an addiction. These sessions will help you to understand your addiction, helping you to recognise any triggers which will in turn reduce the risk of any potential drug or alcohol relapses. Although it’s not essential, some people find it beneficial to include their friends or family within relapse prevention sessions as it helps their loved ones to support them through rehabilitation.
When you join our drug and alcohol rehab Methil, you’ll be giving yourself the best chance possible to achieve a successful recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. When it comes to struggling with addictions, there’s no time to waste. Addiction only gets worse the longer you leave it, now is the time to take a step towards creating a happy and healthy future.
Drug and Alcohol Aftercare
Every person who joins our rehab centre leaves with a 12-month aftercare plan free of charge. The first 12 months after completing your addiction treatment will likely be the most challenging for you, this is why we have a dedicated aftercare team to make the transition as easy as possible. Our fantastic team will provide you with support, motivation, structure, and accountability as you navigate your rehabilitation journey after leaving our treatment centre.
Just like your addiction treatment plan, your aftercare plan will also be personalised. A big focus will be placed on relapse prevention where we can provide additional therapy sessions if needed. We can also arrange sessions as local support groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous should you need it. We understand that not everyone is comfortable opening up about their alcohol and drug addiction in group settings, but if you can get past this then we can assure you that you’ll find some great value in these group counselling sessions.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I achieve sobriety?
That is a big question that has no set answer. Some (very rare) people can achieve sobriety with no help from anyone, others try many times over many years until they succeed. Achieving sobriety is a process that requires commitment and discipline to last a lifetime and the best way to start is by reaching out. Those that ask for help and gain access to drug and alcohol services provided by professionals greatly increase their chances of long-term recovery.
How do I get into rehab?
Getting in touch with our admissions team is a free and easy way to start the recovery journey. Our admissions team can take you through the whole process and get an admission date sorted out quickly so you can get the addiction treatment that you need. If you are going to a private drug and alcohol rehab like Nova Recovery you will have to pay, including a deposit, so it’s important to have the available funds.
Can you recover without rehab?
Yes, you can but doing it successfully and maintaining sobriety is a very difficult feat to accomplish without professional help. Coming off drugs or alcohol alone can be very dangerous as your body may have become dependent on the substances – some people experience serious medical difficulties if they go it alone. Also attending a drug and alcohol rehab will help you confront the emotional issues that led to addiction and provide you with neccessary coping techniques. It takes a rare kind of strength to recover without rehab and it is best to seek professional help in any kind of capacity.
