However, securing treatment at a drug and alcohol rehab in Stroud can often be somewhat challenging due to demand.

If you have previously attempted to secure treatment at a drug and alcohol rehab in Stroud and found yourself having to wait for addiction treatment, we can offer you an immediate place in our residential rehab hospital.

Located in Largs, Scotland, our rehab hospital boasts a tranquil setting, peaceful surrounding and industry-leading treatments for substance addictions and mental health disorders.

Our Addiction Treatment

Whether you have become addicted to drugs or alcohol, here at Nova Recovery, we can provide a wealth of effective and highly recommended addiction treatments to help you take the first step in addressing and overcoming your addiction.

Although the treatment you obtain upon entering our rehab hospital will depend on many different factors, such as the severity of your addiction, you will likely encounter detoxification and rehabilitation.

Detoxification is the process in which the brain and body withdraws from the substance that may have been administered for weeks, months or years.  This particular treatment can, at times, be uncomfortable.

However, it is imperative to understand that you will be at risk of relapsing shortly after leaving rehab if you do not complete a detoxification programme.

This is because your body and brain will still rely on and crave drugs and alcohol.  It is also important to complete detoxification before undergoing rehabilitation as withdrawing from substances will give you a much clearer outlook and will help you focus during rehabilitation.

Rehabilitation at Nova Recovery combines various psychological and well-being therapies.

Although the therapies encountered will also depend on the severity of your addiction and the psychological impact your addiction has had, you will likely participate in one-to-one cognitive behavioural therapy and group therapy sessions.

As you participate in one-to-one cognitive behavioural therapy, you will begin to appreciate the cause of your addiction.  You will also have the opportunity to address any underlying factors and triggers that could ignite your addiction in the future.

Working with a qualified counsellor, cognitive behavioural therapy will also encourage you to change the way you think.  Upon completing cognitive behavioural therapy, you will find that you can manage any problems you encounter better, and you will find that you have a much more optimistic outlook.

Not only will this enhance the quality of your life, but it will help you maintain your sobriety.

Unlike cognitive behavioural therapy, group therapy will encourage you to share how your addiction has impaired your life with others who are also completing addiction treatment.

For many, the thought of participating in group therapy is extremely daunting, yet they soon find that group therapy is a wholesome and positive experience.

In addition to sharing how your addiction has impaired your life, group therapy will provide you with the opportunity to understand how others have overcome their addiction with the support of treatment.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Sadly, when drug and alcohol addictions arise, mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety and stress often come hand-in-hand.

Unbeknown to many, addictions can give way to mental health disorders, and they can also stem from undiagnosed and untreated mental health disorders.

If you find yourself reliant on drugs or alcohol and also experience a mental health disorder, you are not alone.  Research suggests that approximately 37% of adults who develop an alcohol addiction also experience a mental health disorder.

Likewise, 53% of adults who find themselves reliant on drugs also have a mental health disorder.

Unfortunately, an increase in the number of adults abusing substances to alleviate mental health disorders has been noted.  Although treatment is widely available, many choose to self-medicate instead.  Sadly, this is not recommended.

In the instance that an addiction and mental health disorder coexist, dual diagnosis treatment must be administered.

Dual diagnosis treatment ensures that addictions and mental health disorders can be treated simultaneously.  This not only guarantees that the symptoms of both disorders can be alleviated at the same time, but it ensures that the risk of relapsing due to triggers can be mitigated.

Should you struggle with an addiction and mental health disorder, you will be provided with a personalised dual diagnosis treatment programme upon attending our drug and alcohol rehab hospital.

Similarly to addiction treatment programmes, dual diagnosis treatment programmes combine a wealth of treatments such as detoxification and rehabilitation.

Aftercare Support At Nova Recovery

As you consider attending a drug and alcohol rehab in Stroud, the future may have crossed your mind. Yet, when an addiction controls your life, you may find yourself somewhat worried that you will once again turn to substances even after completing a drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme.

At Nova Recovery, we would like to reinforce that this is completely normal.  When an addiction is present, you will at times think that you will never be able to overcome your struggles.

You may also believe that you will relapse and do not have the willpower to commit to a long-term recovery.

If any of the above thoughts have crossed your mind, it is important to understand that as you complete treatment at our rehab hospital, you will not be left to continue your recovery alone when you leave our hospital.  Instead, you will be supported with 12-months of free aftercare support.

By providing aftercare support to our clients, we can help them get through the first 12-months of their recovery.

Typically, our aftercare support combines group therapy sessions and one-to-one cognitive behavioural therapy.  Our group therapy sessions are carried out in our rehab hospital, while our one-to-one cognitive behavioural therapy is often provided via Zoom or Skype.
