Are you looking for rehab in Cumbernauld? Perhaps your loved one is suffering with drug or alcohol addiction and you want to know what support there is in the local community? Either way, you’ve come to the right place.

Rehabilitation Services Available in Cumbernauld

A large town in Dunbartonshire, there isn’t a specialist drug and alcohol rehab facility in Cumbernauld. However, just 20 minutes away, in the centre of Glasgow, there are both inpatient and outpatient rehab centres. At Addiction Advocates, we’re one of the UK’s leading rehabilitation referral services, meaning we can help you find the right rehab centre and programme.

One of the centres we’ve partnered with is just one hour away from Cumbernauld. Nestled in Largs, Nova Recovery has helped hundreds of people to get their life back on track, and you could be next.

Before you can access alcohol and drug rehab treatment, you need to be referred to a centre. GPs commonly complete referrals. If you’re not registered with a local GP in Cumbernauld, you need to do this first. Once registered, you should make an appointment to speak to a GP. At this appointment, your GP can discuss your symptoms, prescribe any medication, and refer you for addiction recovery treatment.

Alternatively, at Addiction Advocates, we can make the referral for you. Simply get in touch with our team via our online form.


Benefits of Travelling for Rehab Treatment in Cumbernauld

As there isn’t a rehab facility in the immediate area of Cumbernauld, you will need to travel further afield to access treatment. When choosing your desired addiction recovery treatment centre, you have two options: outpatient or inpatient.

Outpatient rehab is where you’d receive treatment at a centre and then return home to recover. This is a popular choice for individuals with other commitments or responsibilities, such as childcare or even a job. As an outpatient, you’ll be required to recover at home with limited support though, so it’s important that you consider how challenging it will be to return to familiar areas where drugs and alcohol may be readily available.

Alternatively, there are inpatient rehab centres like the ones that we work with at Addiction Advocates. As an inpatient, you’re required to stay on-site, in a private room, for the duration of your treatment. While you might be concerned about being away from home, or loved ones, this type of rehab offers the best chance of long-term recovery. Friends and family are always encouraged to visit where possible.

Another benefit of travelling to inpatient rehabilitation facilities, like the one in Largs just 60 minutes away from Cumbernauld, is that you’ll have access to leading doctors and state-of-the-art facilities around the clock. Think of it like respite and a decision that’s good for your future.


How Long Are Rehab Programmes?

This is a really common question and depends on the rehab centre you choose, whether you attend as an outpatient or inpatient and how well you respond to therapy. Not to mention, whether you require a detox or not. Typically though, at Addiction Advocates, we refer individuals to private clinics for a 28-day programme.

That doesn’t mean that your recovery journey will come to an end at the end of these 28 days. In fact, it’s just beginning but there are lots of local groups in Cumbernauld that will keep you on track. This includes Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) in Cumbernauld itself as well as Airdrie and Kirkilltolich. Our team is able to provide details of these to you as well as your GP.

Local meetings in Cumbernauld are a crucial part of recovery for both inpatients and outpatients. For outpatients, it provides a level of accountability and support. For inpatients, it helps them to stay resilient once their programme has come to an end. They’re a great place to meet people who are on the same journey as you and can provide that much-needed guidance and advice.


Addictions We Treat

At Addiction Advocates, our referral service has helped so many people to access the therapy and support they need all over the UK – including in Scotland. We work with some of the UK’s leading private rehab clinics.

While every rehab centre is different, they each use a combination of treatments and therapy to combat physical addictions while mitigating any behavioural symptoms. This includes treatment for various drug addictions, alcohol addiction, behavioural addiction and dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis is when there is an addiction and mental health concern present. It’s crucially important to get the right diagnosis in these instances as the treatment needs to be tailored accordingly.

When you first arrive at rehab, your physical and mental health will be assessed. Any medication will be prescribed too. Before you begin any therapy, you’ll have to complete a drug and alcohol detox. It’s completely normal to experience side effects like shaking, muscle aches and sweating.

These can even become more serious and include hallucinations and seizures. You’ll be monitored regularly, though and prescribed medication to help ease any side effects. A medically-assisted detox is the safest and most effective way to detox – and one of the biggest benefits of attending rehab as an inpatient.

Having completed an alcohol and drug detox, it’s time to start therapy. This will typically be done in group and individual sessions and will be a combination of talking, creative, and sometimes psychological therapy. You will also work with medical professionals on aftercare and relapse prevention advice. Plus, you’ll be given a point of contact should you need any help once you leave rehab.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does rehabilitation take?
Most stays in rehab last between 14 and 90 days with 28 days perhaps being the most common. This can vary though depending on your own circumstances and requirements. In general terms, a longer rehab will tend to be more effective as more work can be done through therapy and other treatments.
How beneficial is residential rehab?
Residential rehab is very beneficial because it takes the addict away from their everyday triggers and provides a safe environment with constant support throughout their recovery. A major benefit of rehab is the aftercare support to ensure long-term recovery.
How Long Will I Need To Wait For Treatment?
When you contact us to secure addiction treatment at a private drug and alcohol rehab in Hucknall, you will find that you can commence treatment within a short period. Typically, clients enter a drug and alcohol rehab days after completing our admissions process.
