How To Get Rehab Treatment In Wishaw?

If you want help with drug or alcohol addiction, you have two options: seeking free NHS care through your GP or paying for treatment at a private drug and alcohol rehab.

The waiting lists for NHS drug treatment services are long, in every area of the UK, including Wishaw, North Lanarkshire and Glasgow. Therefore, if you have a severe drug or alcohol addiction, the NHS isn’t the best route for you.

The NHS usually offer outpatient services, where you visit a centre every day and return home at night. Outpatient treatment can be effective, but more for those with mild or manageable addictions.

Private rehab isn’t free, and it costs around £7000 per month. People tend to stay in rehab for anything from a few weeks for a mild addiction to up to three months for a more severe habit. The costs of rehab are high, but you get:

  • 24-hour support from highly qualified addiction experts. You’ll be looked after by doctors, counsellors, therapists, nurses and support staff.
  • Supervised drug or alcohol detox, with support every step of the way.
  • A focus on your mental health. Staff support you in managing your mental health.
  • Intensive individual counselling with a qualified therapist.
  • A timetable of therapy and activities EVERY DAY to help you beat your addiction. Activities range from meditation, art therapy, and fitness and life skills classes.
  • Fully furnished luxury bedrooms with maid service.
  • Freshly cooked and wholesome meals cooked by an in-house chef.

Where Can I Get Free Rehab Treatment?

You can get free drug and alcohol addiction treatment via your GP, but the waiting times are long. NHS outpatient services suit people who have a mild addiction or those who don’t need regular supervised support. Those with a longstanding or severe addiction ideally need residential care to be supervised and supported.

Speak to your doctor if you think NHS services are the best route for you, as they can refer you to a local service. Find out more about NHS drug services in Scotland. You can also self-refer.


Private Rehab V Outpatient Treatment

As we mentioned earlier, you can seek help for addiction through a private rehab clinic or as an NHS outpatient. Private clinics help you to manage your mental health, as well as your addiction; two services in one.

People often arrive at rehab with declining mental health due to prolonged substance abuse. We recommend private rehab every time if you have a severe, embedded addiction and if you find your life spiralling out of control.

NHS drug treatment services don’t treat other issues associated with drug addiction, such as mental health. Outpatient treatment can be effective, but we only recommend it for mild addictions.

As you’ll return home every day, you’ll potentially be exposed to drugs and alcohol through socialising, family and friends. The likelihood of relapse at home is higher than if you are staying at private rehab.

Private rehab has another benefit: you’ll have support from others in recovery. In rehab, there’s always someone to talk to if you’re having a tough day.


Can I Go To Rehab For Any Addiction?

Yes. Drug and alcohol rehab centres treat a wide range of drug addictions. Our staff have working knowledge of the latest street and synthetic drugs and have treated thousands of people addicted to prescription and illegal drugs. Here’s a list of the drugs we treat:

  • Cocaine and crack
  • Alcohol Addiction Treatment
  • Heroin and fentanyl
  • ‘Party’ drugs such as ecstasy, MDMA and GBH
  • Cannabis and hash
  • Crystal meth
  • Speed
  • Painkillers: Morphine, codeine, methadone and oxycodone
  • Benzodiazepines: Diazepam, Xanax, Klonopin and Librium
  • Stimulants: Adderall and Ritalin
  • Prescription medicines for sleep
  • Synthetic street drugs such as synthetic cannabis


Where Is A Local Rehab?

Our rehab centre is in Scotland, in a large town called Wishaw. We’re just a short drive away if you live in North Lanarkshire or Glasgow, but you want to complete rehab away from where you live.

Completing rehab away from home, as an inpatient rather than as an outpatient, has many benefits. The first is privacy. If you want to keep your addiction private, then moving away will help. If you stay at home and visit a treatment centre every day, the likelihood of bumping into friends, neighbours or colleagues is high.

There’s a slim chance that you’ll know others in rehab, so it’s a safe space for recovery.

As an inpatient, you’ll benefit from 24 hours of support, plus a daily schedule of counselling, support groups and holistic and soothing activities. With residential rehab, the focus is on your recovery but also on keeping you occupied. You’ll still have free time to relax, read and exercise, but a timetable helps keep patients focused and eliminates boredom.

Completing rehab away from where you live brings a change of scene. Many addictions are made more accessible due to familiar places, people and routines. Taking away temptations helps those in recovery focus on healing, away from potentially harmful influences.


How Long Does Rehab Last?

The time you spend in rehab varies depending on what you’re addicted to, the severity and your consumption levels. Some patients enter rehab for up to three months, while others stay for a few weeks.

Every rehab centre has an admissions team that will access you and suggest a suitable length of stay. Addicts are often reluctant to commit to a more extended stay when they first arrive as they’re still craving drugs and alcohol. Once patients detox and cravings subside, they relax and commit to treatment.

Every rehab centre aims to make people better. But if the team and you feel you’re not ready to leave, you can extend your stay.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Achieve Sobriety?

Achieving sobriety can be difficult, especially if you attempt to go at it alone. However, with our professional support, you will achieve sobriety by completing a number of treatments, such as detoxification and rehabilitation. Relapse prevention and aftercare support will additionally contribute to your sobriety. Although the treatments administered during your time in our rehab will assist you in recovering from your addiction, completing aftercare will help you remain sober in the weeks, months and years that follow.

Can you recover from an addiction without attending rehab?

Recovering from addiction without attending rehab is extremely difficult. This is because recovering without attending rehab will prevent you from securing psychological treatment, such as therapy and counselling. Attempting to recover from an addiction without attending rehab will also put you at a much greater risk of relapsing.

How long does rehab last?

A typical rehab treatment programme lasts for 28-days. However, some individuals remain in rehab for up to 90-days at a time. Whilst we understand that you will want to determine how long it will take you to complete rehab, many factors will ultimately determine how long you will require treatment. With this in mind, we would encourage you to remain open-minded about your recovery.
