Rehab 4 Addiction

Rehab 4 Addiction offers a variety of drug and alcohol treatment options in Edinburgh.

To book into an Edinburgh-based drug or alcohol rehab, call us today on 0800 140 4690.

We endeavour to help you locate a treatment provider in the Edinburgh area. We refer you to multiple different treatment providers, so you are able to make an informed decision with reference to your treatment needs, budget and time you have available.

Recovery from drug or alcohol addiction is one of the most important life events you will ever experience.

It is vital you locate a treatment provider that is capable of meeting your unique needs whilst also offering an extended programme of aftercare.

Unrivalled care and support during rehab

When you attend an Edinburgh rehab centre for drug or alcohol addiction, you receive unrivalled support. This is because the rehab centres we work with are entirely residential in nature.

You ‘move-in’ to the treatment centre whilst you undergo your detox and rehabilitation programme. This means you are removed from your ‘using environment’ whilst you undergo treatment.

This gives you an achievable chance of attaining that elusive recovery goal. In contrast, home or ‘outpatient’ treatments are most likely to result in failure.

Residential treatment usually means you do not have to make your own food or do your own laundry. You typically sleep in an en-suite suite bedroom and receive 24/7 support.

If this description matches what you seek then call Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690.

The importance of physical detox

Our treatment methods aim to address the mental and physical aspects of drug and alcohol addiction. When you enter an Edinburgh treatment clinic, the priority is to treat the physical aspect of drug or alcohol addiction.

This involves a process known in the industry as ‘detox’.

Detox is short for detoxification. Detox is typically assisted by medications. These medications are prescribed at the very start of your treatment programme. Medications must be prescribed by a psychiatrist or other medical doctor.

You take these medications in order to reduce the pain you will experience during detox. This is because detox causes various ‘withdrawal symptoms’. These symptoms differ depending on the substance you are addicted to.

For instance, an alcohol detox gives rise to different withdrawal symptoms when compared to opiate detox.

We provide a more thorough explanation of the detox process here.

Tackling the mental aspects of addiction

Detox is fully complete within around seven days of your rehab treatment. Following detox, you will be treated for the mental causes of drug or alcohol addiction.

These emotional causes have likely affected you for many years. You thus must spend many days undergoing therapy sessions. These sessions aim to tackle thought patterns that promote drug or alcohol use.

Negative thought patterns are typically the by-product of traumatic events that occurred in your past. These events may have occurred during early childhood, or perhaps later in life in your teens or during your ‘twenties’. During rehab, a team of gifted therapists aim to unravel these events.

You are given the power to cope with stress and trauma in ways that do not involve drug or alcohol use. Therapists give you this power by using a number of highly proven therapy techniques.

These techniques include CBT and psychotherapy. You also participate in so-called ‘holistic therapies’ such as Reiki, art therapy, meditation and yoga.

You provide you with an in-depth look at the types of treatment on offer at rehabs here.

How long should I stay in rehab for in Edinburgh?

Each rehab centre we refer you to is bound by a strict duty of care. This means your well-being is given much importance, both during your time at rehab and when you immediately leave.

Before you leave the rehab centre, you will receive a thorough assessment. This assessment determines your mental and physical stability. If you are not fit to leave the rehab centre then you will be recommended to remain within the centres care until you are fit to leave.

We typically recommend your treatment last for at least fourteen days. This ensures you are fully capable of returning to your home following the completion of treatment.

Rehabs designed for five to even ten days may mean you are not fully ready to return to your home following the completion of your treatment. This may mean you are more at risk of relapse.
