Our centre

While you may be looking for rehab centres in Aberdeen, the Ocean Recovery Centre is a good place to consider for people from this area, as it allows you to spend some time away from home to get perspective.

We’re based in Blackpool, and being in the North East of England means we’re just a few hours away by car or train, which means you get away from bad influences and other things that can affect your recovery.

Our centre is a great place to undergo addiction treatment, with comfortable surroundings and a homely feel. There are private rooms, some of which are ensuite, so you get privacy and peace when you need it, plus there are communal areas where you can enjoy a cup of tea and a chat.


The rehab process

We work with people with both drug and alcohol addiction and those with a dual diagnosis such as a mental health issue, eating disorder or similar.

When you first come to us for drug and alcohol rehab, you’ll go through a full assessment of your physical and mental health, so we can tailor our treatment programmes to suit your needs.

Most people who arrive at the Ocean Recovery Centre who have drug or alcohol problems will still have these substances in their system. That’s why we help you arrange transport, so you aren’t in danger by drug or drink driving.

It also means we need you to go through a drug and alcohol detox as soon as you get here. Many people are keen to detox, as it’s a good first step toward recovery, although it can mean you suffer from withdrawal symptoms. We can prescribe medication to take the edge off these symptoms and get you through the process.

The next step is rehab treatment, which includes a wide range of different therapies to give you the best possible chance of success.

When you come to us for drug and alcohol rehab in Aberdeen, you’ll get intensive therapy, both as an individual and with your peers, which will help give you the tools you need once you leave rehab.

Working with others who are drug addicted or have alcohol problems can give you a whole new perspective.

Our rehab programme also includes a number of workshops, alcohol and drug education and holistic therapies, so when you leave us, you know how to spot a relapse and know what to do if you’re tempted. Sessions of mindfulness, yoga, and other alternative therapies show you ways to stay calm and relax, without using alcohol or drugs, which can be useful skills in your recovery.


When you leave Rehab

Come to the Ocean Recovery Centre for drug and alcohol rehab in Aberdeen, and you’ll stay for 28 days, during which you’ll get intensive treatment. However, we understand that a month isn’t very long in the context of recovery, so when it’s time to leave us, we look at your treatment options in the long term.

Some people find ongoing support can help, perhaps in a centre in Aberdeen, which means you can build a local support group. This can help during that difficult first year of recovery, in which you may find you need to make big changes to your life.

Complete your stay with us and you’ll get a year of free aftercare. Compared to other rehab centres in Aberdeen, we focus a lot on keeping you sober in the long term so that you can live a life free from drugs and alcohol.

We can also support you in reaching your goals post-rehab. Many people who stay with us have a particular goal in mind, whether it’s reconciling with family members, getting a new job or volunteering. Those who are busy, productive, and happy are less likely to go back to drugs or alcohol and enjoy their lives.


Help when you need it

Many people with addictions encounter a problem getting treated because they reach out for help, only to find a long waiting list. That’s why, at the Ocean Recovery Centre, we’ve tried to make the process as smooth and straightforward as possible.

We can often admit people within 48 hours, so there’s no time for them to change their mind or go on one last binge. Our initial consultation is carried out over the phone, so you don’t need to visit the centre, and we don’t ask for a referral.

This means that anyone who has an issue with addiction can pick up the phone and begin the process, and we’ll be there whenever you need us.

Will I still have access to my phone during rehab?

Yes, but phone and internet use will not be allowed during any counselling or therapy sessions. The reason for this is so you are fully focused throughout the duration of the programme and any distractions like this may disrupt your ability to recover.

Typical rehabilitation programmes carried out at our clinic last for 28 days with the detoxification stage of treatment lasting around 10 days with intensive therapy and counselling sessions taking place after that.

Will my family be allowed to visit me during my stay?

Family members are allowed to arrange visits to see you, we would encourage anyone undertaking treatment to have visits from family members as having this support provides valuable motivation that’s needed when in recovery for addiction.
