In a report by the National Records of Scotland from June, 1,330 drugs occurred in 2021 due to drug misuse. 15 of these deaths were in Clackmannanshire. Though this is a slight decrease, it is an anomaly as figures around drug and alcohol addiction have increased year on year over the last decade.
Scotland suffers greatly from issues around addiction – especially when it comes to drinking and recreational drugs such as heroin.
Many people need help and don’t know where to turn. Others are still in denial and need help realising that they have a problem.
Nova Recovery is a private alcohol and drug rehab centre that provides comprehensive treatment to fight addiction. Built on a culture of acceptance and openness, we offer our clients a bespoke treatment programme that will help them achieve their recovery goals. With your well-being and mental health at the forefront of everything we do, we help guide you through this difficult period and supply you with the methods to change your life.
Addictions We Treat
Besides drug addiction and alcoholism, we can help you with many forms of addiction you may be suffering from. We also provide services for behavioural addictions such as gambling – which is becoming more commonplace due to the rise of online betting.
Under the umbrella of drug addiction, we treat people struggling with cannabis, cocaine, heroin, prescription drugs, and crystal meth.
Our staff are experts in all facets of addiction and the range of treatment options available means you are guaranteed at Nova Recovery to find the correct help for your addiction.
Do I Have an Addiction?
If you are asking yourself this question then you might be having a drug or alcohol addiction.
The most common signs that point toward addiction are experiencing withdrawal symptoms if you stop drinking and taking drugs for a time. The severity of the symptoms may indicate how bad your addiction is.
Other clear signs such as losing interest in hobbies, being more secretive, losing your job and pulling away from daily responsibilities may signal that drinks and drugs are taking over your life. If most of your thoughts are taken up by how to obtain drugs and alcohol, using them and keeping the practice a secret then you are addicted to those substances.
If any of those signs seem familiar then you should seek professional help by booking yourself into a drug or alcohol rehab.
How Private Rehab Can Help You
Private drug and alcohol rehab comes with it many benefits that can help you in your recovery journey.
Our private hospital is located on the idyllic West Coast of Scotland, offering respite from the outside world. Private rehab gives you a chance to step back from your chaotic life and not worry about your daily pressures and responsibilities. In this safe environment, you can better focus on yourself and engage more fully in the treatment.
The range of treatments offered by a private facility is much beyond what you can access via the NHS or on an outpatient basis. If your addiction is severe, you may need more specific treatments that only a private treatment centre can provide you with.
Our facilities at Nova Recovery are to a high standard and we strive to deliver industry-leading treatment via our dedicated staff. With the resources and expert guidance that Nova Recovery offers, you will better understand your addiction and build a stronger foundation to achieve your recovery goals.
Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Nova Recovery aims to provide you with a comprehensive addiction treatment plan that deals with both the physical and psychological aspects of your addiction. Over a minimum 28-day stay you will undergo a detoxification program and attend numerous therapy sessions where you will learn skills to help you cope with your addiction in the outside world.
The first portion of your stay with us will be spent going through detox. Once you stop taking drugs or drinking, your body reacts to this change negatively. The withdrawal symptoms that occur due to detoxing occur as your body begins to heal itself and get used to not having harmful chemicals affecting your body anymore.
To help deal with the worst of symptoms that come up when undergoing alcohol detox or drug detox, you will have access to medication. Symptoms vary from person to person and depend on several including your physiology and history with addiction.
Detox can last 5 – 10 days, depending again on many factors.
The bulk of your time at Nova Recovery will be spent in therapy. Individual sessions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Therapy will help you understand your emotions better and manage them. With this knowledge, you can begin to make positive changes in your life and become better at coping with difficulties. This should help you not turn to substances when you face struggles in the future.
Individual sessions will be complemented by group therapy and well-being treatments. If you are suffering from concurrent mental health issues then we provide dual-diagnosis treatment to help deal with the separate but potentially linked conditions.
What Happens After Rehab in Scotland?
When it comes to long-term recovery, rehab is just a milestone in the journey. Many people upon completing treatment feel they have reached the end of the road or feel they are not ready for what comes next. This anxiety and fear can often lead to relapse not long after rehab, undoing all the good work done.
We at Nova Recovery understand this, which is why we offer a FREE 12-month aftercare plan to everyone that completes their treatment plan. By attending weekly support meetings and talking to your peers about your respective recovery journeys you can hone the coping techniques you learned.
Staying on top of your coping skills and having access to emotional support are important aspects of relapse prevention.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I achieve sobriety?
While there is no one single answer to this question, there are a multitude of things that you can do to help become sober. Firstly, you should be committed to the idea of recovery, as if you are not 100% committed then you will simply fall down at the first hurdle. You should also be prepared to make significant changes to your day-to-day life, as change is a massive part of the recovery process. Finally, you should reach out for the assistance of a professional treatment centre — becoming sober along can be nearly impossible, and there is no shame in asking for help when you need it.
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 inpatient treatment like?
Inpatient residential addiction treatment is the course of treatment which we recommend for most individuals who are looking to overcome a drug addiction and/or alcohol addiction. Inpatient treatment, due to the fact that you reside full-time at the place where you are receiving treatment, is a very intensive form of treatment. You will receive round-the-clock medical care from the comfort of a top quality private bedroom. We will also provide you with three home-cooked nutritious meals prepared by our kitchen staff each day.
