However, before deciding on a treatment service, see our most commonly asked questions below regarding localised drug and alcohol treatment centres. Once you’re familiarised with your rehab treatment options, you’ll benefit from our addiction services greater.


Am I Ready for Rehab?

Timing is a very important factor when considering drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Many believe that a certain type or level of alcohol or drug addiction is required to benefit from rehab. This is in fact incorrect, where varying treatment programmes are available through drug rehab. However, what can control the value of rehab is personal readiness to recover.

This level of commitment can take some time for some individuals. Denial will cloud their outlook on drug and alcohol rehabilitation. For others, a life without drugs and alcohol is viewed as impossible. For further clients, the readiness to change is lacking.

In order to progress through rehab, clients must be ready. They must understand the process of rehab, they just appreciate the results they can experience, they must commit to long-term recovery efforts. Without this level of commitment, rehab will be a pointless investment. Ongoing substance abuse is likely for those who aren’t ready for rehab.

With this in mind, before searching for a drug and alcohol rehab in Aberdeen to recover from, you must prepare yourself mentally. You must face up to your addiction, ensure you have the resources to recover and open up to those around you. Once you reach this point, you’ll be in the mind frame to recover.

Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatments

There are two main treatments for drug and alcohol abuse – the detox process and addiction recovery therapies. Physical and psychological health are equally important in treating drug and alcohol addiction, which is why we have both trained psychiatrists and medical professionals as part of the medical team in rehab.

Medical Detox

The drug or alcohol detox process is the first stage of addiction treatment, and typically lasts around 5-10 days. You can expect to experience withdrawal symptoms during this period, but unpleasant withdrawal symptoms will be treated with prescription medication provided by medical professionals.

Physical withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Hot and cold flashes
  • Muscle aches
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Mental health issues such as depression and anxiety

Therapy Treatments

Treating psychological addiction is just as important as the withdrawal process, as psychological dependence is commonly the cause of relapse. We have registered mental health nurses on hand to support and guide you throughout the addiction treatment programme and manage any mental health disorders which may arise during treatment.

Some of the main treatments offered at residential rehab includes:

  • Individual therapy
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Dialectical behavioural therapy
  • Holistic therapies
  • Art therapy
  • Intensive therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Aftercare services
  • Relapse prevention planning

What Are My Expected Recovery Rates?

Recovery rates will deviate significantly depending on a number of factors. From your readiness to recover and your ability to maintain sobriety, to your long-term efforts post-rehab, there are many variables which can change recovery likelihoods.

However, by investing in a drug and alcohol rehab in Aberdeen, completing a comprehensive treatment programme and preparing for life after rehab, you will have a high chance of long term recovery.

It is important to note that although initial recovery can be achieved, you must continue this level of maintenance post-rehab. If your behaviours slip, if you make a bad choice or if you surround yourself with drugs and alcohol, a high-risk situation may present itself, known as a relapse.

In order to increase your recovery rates, you must be committed to the entire rehab process and evidence-based addiction treatments at inpatient rehab, as well as through post-rehab life in Aberdeen. You will be provided with tools to uphold your efforts.


What is the Private Rehab Process?

Although rehab is a personal experience, there is a structured treatment programme process that you will complete. Once we’ve selected the most fitting drug and alcohol rehab in Aberdeen, a referral will be made. Here a convenient and efficient admission date will be set.

On your admission date, you will check into your rehab facility, with a high probability of completing inpatient rehab. Before the commencement of treatment, a final assessment will be made to ensure that you’re ready and fit for a drug and alcohol rehab programme.

From here, you will be provided with a personalised treatment programme. This programme will follow your needs when considering rehabilitation efforts. Through combining physical and psychological methods, you’ll withdraw, learn, realign and recover from addiction. An alcohol and drug detox, therapy sessions, cognitive behavioural therapy and family therapy are a few to mention.

While residing at rehab, you’ll experience a positive environment, surrounded by other like-minded individuals. You’ll receive 24/7 care, and consistent access to treatment options and services which will benefit your post-rehab life.

Through this service, you will prepare for life beyond rehab through relapse prevention planning sessions and techniques to uphold your quality of life.

Throughout drug rehab, observations will be made to ensure that you’re healthy, safe and progressing. Once you reach a point where you’re able to cope without drugs and alcohol, likely to be 28 days into rehab, returning home will be recommended. Through this transition, you will be supported by aftercare services, ensuring that you can maintain your recovery efforts.

Please be aware that recommendations to return home will only be made once you’re fully ready. Rehab timescales will also deviate for all clients, depending on progression.

To experience this invaluable process, reach out for our support here at Addiction Advocates. You’ll soon see the value of visiting a drug and alcohol rehab in Aberdeen, while following aftercare services.

Through this combined effort, you’ll increase your recovery rates, helping you rehabilitate from drugs and alcohol for the future – call us to start your recovery journey today on 0800 012 6088.
