Rehab 4 Addiction

Rehab 4 Addiction offers multiple drug and alcohol rehabilitation services across the Glasgow and greater West of Scotland region. This includes home detoxification, outpatient treatment and fully and quasi-residential/inpatient treatment services.

These treatment programmes typically begin with a detox, although this depends upon the nature and duration of your addiction. If you are a family or friend of those suffering from substance use disorder we also offer a professional intervention service.

Official statistics how more than 20% of Scots drink hazadous levels of alochol. The need for effective addiction treatment in Scotland is thus a vital service that is need to mitigate this harm.

About Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Glasgow

Unfortunately, Glasgow tops most Governmental and non-Governmental surveys when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction. Since 2012, Glasgow’s drug and alcohol problem has increased year-on-year.

This increase is across the board from alcohol to heroin and an array of ‘legal highs’. Glasgow’s drug and alcohol problem is an issue the City Council has failed to tackle.

Most people who seek this sort of services do so with little idea of the appropriateness of each treatment programme on offer.

Whilst Glasgow does not have any shortage of quality drug and alcohol treatment centres, it is vital you choose a programme that is suited to your particular needs. Get this decision incorrect, and you risk relapse, if not an early grave.

Over the last decade, Rehab 4 Addiction has built up a stellar record for placing those suffering from substance use disorder into rehab centres in the Glasgow area.

This service means your chances of beating drugs or alcohol are significantly increased. This is because we place you in a centre that’s optimised for treating your particular addiction and any associated mental and emotional problems you may face.

Why we recommend residential rehab treatment

At Rehab 4 Addiction we deal with thousands of people experiencing substance use disorder each year. Once rehabilitation completes we stay in touch with many of the people who have passed through our doors.

The tragedy of relapse is one of the less pleasing realities of working in the drug and alcohol rehab field. From observing the recovery of thousands of those experiences substance use disorder, we can say residential rehabilitation offers patients an achievable chance of staying in recovery for the rest of their life.

Other forms of treatment such as outpatient and home-based detox programmes are also available, alongside residential treatment.

What does residential treatment involve?

When you choose to experience a Glasgow residential rehab programme for substance misuse disorders and alcohol use disorders, you will receive a chance of remaining in recovery for the rest of your life.

Before you enter this centre you must call Rehab 4 Addiction in order to complete a pre-admission assessment. Upon the completion of this assessment, you receive an admissions date.

Upon entering a Glasgow rehabilitation centre, a full mental and physical examination are carried out by a qualified psychiatrist. Following this, you will begin an extensive detox programme. Here, all drug or alcohol toxins are removed from your system. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms are treated with specialist prescription medications. You will be given specialist medications to treat these withdrawal symptoms. You also benefit from 24/7 help and support from the rehab clinic’s staff members.

Some of the complications that could potential arise during withdrawal include:

  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations
  • Hand tremours
  • Delirium tremens
  • Disorientation
  • Excessive sweating

Please read our alcohol detox timeline article for more information about the alcohol detox process.

Once detox comes to a conclusion, the ‘rehabilitation’ process begins. This typically involves therapy and counselling session that aim to treat the underlying mental problems that give rise to addictive behaviours. These mental causes of addiction are known as ‘dual diagnosis’, and typically include depression, anxiety and PTSD.

By the time you have completed your rehabilitation programme, you will be mentally and physically rehabilitated.

Once rehab is complete, you will be able to enjoy up to 12-months of aftercare support. Aftercare sessions are help every weekend at the rehab clinic itself. Here, you can engage in 12-step work, and evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.

Furthermore, you will be armed with a number of stress-management strategies that help you fight off drug or alcohol cravings. Without these strategies, powerful cravings risk all the hard work and progress you have earned during rehabilitation.

Mutual support groups

It is beneficial to also attend fellowship/mutual support groups in Glosgow alongside the aftercare sessions. Here, you will typically follow a 12-step programme if you attend a local Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous group.  SMART Recovery offers a non-step alternative, focusing instead on behaviour therapy.
