There can be a number of reasons why you may be searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Dundee. It may be that you have friends or family members who are insisting you get help, or it may be because you are getting into debt, have problems in your career, or have other issues caused by your addiction. Or it may just be you want to make a positive change in your life and get off drugs or alcohol for good. Whatever your reasons, the Ocean Recovery Centre is here to help.

If you decide you want to come to us for treatment, and we assess you as suitable, our admissions team can usually get you a bed within 48 hours, so there’s no need to wait.

When you search for drug and alcohol rehab in Dundee, you’ll notice many different options are available for your treatment. You may be wondering whether residential treatment is the right choice, and whether you want to travel to Blackpool to stay at the Ocean Recovery Centre, when there are of course, options in Dundee.
In our experience, those who opt for residential treatment and stay away from home, have the best possible chance of recovery in the long term. Treatment options such as outpatient care mean you’re close to temptation, and if you have friends or family who use alcohol and drugs, it can be hard to be around them. Staying with us for just a few weeks can change your perspective in the long term, so it’s worth taking this time out and clearing your head.
A good part of residential rehab is that it’s very hard to relapse. While you aren’t locked up in the Ocean Recovery Centre, it is extremely hard to go out and buy drugs or alcohol, plus you’re away from the usual people you’d buy from. Just being in a positive environment with other recovering addicts can go a long way to keeping you on track.
Going through detox
Detox is perhaps one of the parts that people with addiction dread going through, but it’s an important start to your drug and alcohol rehab in Dundee. When you stop taking drugs or drinking, it’s likely your body will go through some withdrawal symptoms, which can range from mild to severe. That’s why it’s better to be in a safe place like the Ocean Recovery Centre, where you’ll get 24/7 support and can be monitored for any signs you may need medical attention.
A stay with the Ocean Recovery Centre includes inpatient detox, where you can opt to take prescription medication to dull some of the worst of the side effects. This medication is only available as an inpatient, as you’ll need to be closely supervised.
Your rehab treatment
The treatment you are offered when you come for drug and alcohol rehab in Dundee will depend on a number of factors. On arrival at the Ocean Recovery Centre, you’ll go through a full assessment, and this will help us decide the best types of treatment to suit your needs. We understand that addiction is extremely complex and not all treatments work for all people, you’re likely to need a combination of therapies.
Everyone who stays with us will go through individual and group therapy sessions, using proven methods such as CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. These sessions will explore the root of your addiction, what your triggers are, and how you can avoid relapsing in the future. You’ll also have a mixture of traditional and holistic therapies, giving you the best possible chance of staying sober when you leave us.
When you have a drug or alcohol addiction, it doesn’t stop once you complete your time at a rehab clinic. That’s why aftercare is so important to the process. We give you a year of free aftercare, helping you get through the most difficult time in your sobriety and giving you a support network. Of course, you may also want to find your own support network through organisations for example Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous, who can help you with your journey.
Life at the Ocean Recovery Centre
The Ocean Recovery Centre is a private rehab facility, so you enjoy a homely, welcoming environment when you stay with us. From private rooms to communal areas with sea views, there are lots of things that make this a pleasant place to stay and recover. We’re set on Blackpool’s promenade in a large, historic house, so coming into rehab isn’t like being in a hospital or clinic, it feels more like sharing a house, and we’ve worked hard to ensure you have great facilities for your stay.
