Here at Nova Recovery, our drug and alcohol rehab in Midlothian has an exceptional team of recovery workers who deliver the very best evidence-based therapies to individuals suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs.

Private drug and alcohol rehab hospital is widely regarded as the most effective form of addiction treatment when compared with free local health services or outpatient treatment.

This is primarily because it’s extremely difficult to cut out substance abuse at home where you’re likely to be surrounded by the distractions and general stress of daily life, leaving you unable to solely focus on your long-term recovery. Whereas at our residential rehab for drug and alcohol abuse, you stay with us at our treatment hospital which is highly recovery focused with no distractions or temptations to relapse.

We’re so proud to have supported countless people along their recovery journeys. Whilst it may feel as though it’s an impossible task right now, it is possible to regain a life free from alcohol or drugs isn’t as out of reach as you might think.

Just get in touch with us today on 01475 303998 or email us at [email protected] to begin your own journey to recovery.


What are our residential addiction treatments like?

We take the time to get to know each of our clients before they begin their residential addiction treatment at our rehab in Midlothian. This helps us to create a bespoke treatment programme for each individual, including a mix of well-being and psychological therapies, in addition to a drug and alcohol detoxification.

Initially, you’ll likely begin with this detox as it’s a crucial aspect of ridding your body of harmful toxins, allowing you to take on your subsequent therapies with a clearer mind.

Whilst we recognise that drug and alcohol detoxification can be an uncomfortable process, we wouldn’t recommend it unless we thought it was such an integral part of your recovery.

There’s no doubt that it’s an effective way to remove your physical dependency to the substance. You are likely to experience some withdrawal symptoms as a result of your drug or alcohol intake being gradually reduced.

These widely vary between each person but could include nausea, dizziness, headaches, or in more serious cases, seizures, insomnia, or delirium tremens.

As these withdrawal symptoms are so unpredictable and have the potential to be quite severe, it’s essential that you undergo a detox under the supervision of a medical team to ensure you’re safe throughout the detoxification.

Once you’ve successfully completed your drug and alcohol detoxification, you can begin your psychological and well-being therapies, hopefully with more motivation than you had before.

These therapies could include cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing, stress management, drug and alcohol relapse prevention, individual, group or family counselling, mindfulness, yoga, relaxation and sleep management, art therapy, and fitness therapy.


Do we offer mental health treatments?

In our experience, many people who join our private drug and alcohol rehab in Midlothian are also battling with mental health issues. This is quite common so it’s nothing to feel embarrassed or ashamed.

If you’re suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs and some mental health issues, then we refer to this as a dual diagnosis.

Our team are very knowledgeable and can treat both conditions simultaneously if appropriate; we provide mental health treatments and support to anyone who needs it. Our equipped and motivated team are here to support and help you through your recovery from your dual diagnosis in the most effective way possible.

We might be able to identify if there’s a more prominent condition, but it’s also possible that the two conditions are equally affecting your well-being.

When someone is living with an addiction to alcohol or drugs, it’s not unusual for them to develop problems with their mental health as a result of this excessive substance abuse.

On the other hand, it’s also quite common to see someone who is suffering from mental health issues turn to alcohol or drugs to help cope with their psychological well-being.

Either of these two ways is generally how a dual diagnosis occurs. It is a difficult condition to live with and requires immediate attention before it gets any worse.


Our Aftercare Programme

Our residential addiction treatment programmes generally last around 28 days, depending on the severity of your drug or alcohol abuse. Once you’ve completed this, you’ll return home to continue your recovery journey.

This transition back into homelife can be quite challenging as you need to adjust your new behaviours back into your lifestyle, avoiding any relapses. With this in mind, we offer all of our clients a free drug and alcohol aftercare programme for the first 12 months upon returning home.

We have a dedicated aftercare team who are there to support you in anyway that they can, whether that’s arranging additional therapy sessions, recommending local support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, or just being there to listen to you.

Our aftercare support also extends to your friends and family as this is a difficult time for them as well. We can arrange family counselling sessions or take the time to show your loved ones the tools needed to help prevent you from relapsing. Whilst you may be reluctant to involve them in your recovery process, we’ve generally seen this involvement produce positive results for everyone.
