You may think that you’re in control of your addiction, but it’ll only get worse and you’ll end up pushing away anyone that cares about you.

With the highest rate of alcohol-specific deaths in the UK, Scotland is experiencing high volumes of addiction and a demand for drug and alcohol treatment services.

Here at Nova Recovery, we provide residential drug and alcohol rehab hospital. With luxury accommodation, peaceful grounds and a personalised treatment programme, you can distance yourself from your daily life and focus on your own recovery.

Without professional help the chances of long term recovery are slim.

How Do You Know You Need Rehab?

Admitting you have an addiction is the first step towards recovery, but often the hardest step to take.

Addiction is something you have no control over, but which causes you harm. Anyone can become an addict, despite stereotypes. It could be stress from your work, or family life that drives your addiction, or a trauma that you experience.

Whatever the cause, it’s important to understand that addiction is both a physical and psychological illness. This means that when you’re looking to recover, you must treat both your mind and body.

Going ‘cold turkey’ or detoxing at home is never advised and rarely provides long term recovery, as you don’t treat the full addiction.

At Nova Recovery we provide personalised dual-diagnosis treatment programmes. You’ll undertake a detox, supervised by medical professionals, as well as undertaking a therapy programme to learn about your addiction and its triggers.


Finding The Right Drug And Alcohol Rehab For You

Local treatment options at a detox hospital in Peterhead may seem like the most appealing option. With outpatient drug and alcohol treatment programmes you can stay at home whilst receiving your treatment and, to some degree, continue with your daily life.

Despite the initial appeal, outpatient addiction treatment is often much more challenging than residential treatment programmes, as you’re surrounded by the negative influences that drive your addiction.

In contrast, at a residential rehabilitation hospital you’ll gain distance between yourself and your daily life; full of the pressures, stress and negatively that fuels your addiction.

Residential addiction treatment is the most effective form of rehabilitation, with higher success rates at achieving long recovery.


Benefits Of Residential Rehab

You may think that rehabilitation is a simple and easy process that can be achieved on your own. Unfortunately, this is not the case.

Without a substantial programme that includes treatments designed to help your physical and psychological self-recovery, long term recovery isn’t likely.

Private drug and alcohol rehabilitation offer a variety of treatments, from detox to therapy to stress management workshops and fitness sessions. Each programme is tailored specifically to the individual.

However, the treatment benefits are not the only advantages to residential rehab. Each addiction treatment programme lasts for an initial 28 days, during which time you’ll get to know the staff and other residents.

By living alongside peers with similar experiences our hospital provides a supportive environment in which to recover. You’ll also have access to a range of facilities and the peaceful grounds during your stay.

It’s important to remember that recovery takes time and is dependant on your own personal circumstances, but most importantly that recovery can only take place if you’re fully committed to it.


What You Can Expect From Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Upon arrival at Nova Recovery, you’ll undergo a medial assessment to determine your physical and psychological health.

Our medical team will work with you to design a personalised addiction treatment programme. All treatment programmes will include detox and therapy.

Detox is the first step, as it’s important to diminish your body’s dependence on the substance before starting your therapy.

During detox the level of consumption will be slowly reduced and you’ll experience withdrawal symptoms, but these symptoms will vary person to person depending on the length and severity of your addiction.

We ensure that all detoxes are supervised by our medical professionals and, where required, prescription drugs can be provided to help alleviate your symptoms.

Once detox has been achieved, you’ll start your therapy sessions. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is the most common type of therapy used. It works by identifying your negative thought patterns and working with you to change negative habits.

Most addicts also suffer with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, which is why our dual-diagnosis treatment is so vital to your recovery.

Alongside therapy, you’ll also have the chance to take part in various workshops and fitness sessions to help you develop a more positive and healthier lifestyle.


Life After Rehab

The thought of leaving drug and alcohol rehab can seem like a daunting step to take, but upon successfully completing your addiction treatment we’ll work with you to complete a Relapse Prevention Plan to ensure you have the necessary tools and understanding to reenter your daily life.

From our years of experience, we have found that peer support is the most effective tool for maintaining long term sobriety.

That is why we will put you in contact with local support groups, so that even after your rehab you can find the support you require.

Recovery takes a long time, as people require time to adjust. When you leave the rehabilitation hospital you may find that slotting back into family life or relationships is not as easy as you first thought.

You may find that people treat you differently, perhaps give you too much space, or try to wrap you on cotton wool. Rebuilding your relationships will take time, but if you find that you require some professional help we also offer family and friend referral alongside family group therapy sessions.

The first 12 months are the most challenging in terms of recovery, which is why we offer 12 months of free support.
