Drug and Alcohol Rehab Glasgow

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres in Glasgow

Often, simply making a statement is a sign that someone struggling with alcohol dependence in Glasgow is ready for help. Just saying “I need help with alcohol” is an important step on the road to recovery and finding alcohol support groups can make a huge difference.

For many people, having a strong support network and being able to talk about substance abuse problems in a group is all that’s needed to start the drug and alcohol addiction recovery journey.

Other people find it more of a struggle and they seek additional support with their addiction at a trusted rehab in Glasgow. This is particularly true for those whose working and personal lives have been seriously affected by alcohol or drugs.

A GP can make a referral to local and alcohol rehab centres but some patients prefer to make contact with alcohol recovery centres themselves directly.

At the Ocean Recovery Centre, we specialise in supporting our valued Glasgow patients with alcohol withdrawal treatment and long-term alcohol recovery strategies. By working together with you, we can help you regain control over your life and body.

Our highly experienced, caring Glasgow rehabilitation centre team is completely committed to your treatment and ongoing sustainable recovery. To talk to a member of our team in total confidence, please contact us on 0800 880 7596 or complete the contact form.


Drug and Alcohol Addiction We Treat

At our treatment centre, we provide multiple treatment options for a variety of addictions. Some addictions we treat include:

  • Alcohol addiction
  • Cocaine addiction
  • Cannabis addiction
  • Prescription drugs addiction
  • Dual diagnosis treatment


Do I Need Alcohol or Drug Addiction Treatment?

Are you considering seeking drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment? Alcohol and casual drug use is synonymous with fun and socialising in Britain, and can be fine in moderation.

However, alcohol and drug addiction can easily form and ruin lives.

Some signs that you could have an alcohol or drug addiction problem include:

  • You often drink alcohol or abuse drugs in the daytime
  • You get very drunk in social situations
  • Your drinking causes you to “black out” and forget what you have said or done
  • You rely on alcohol or drugs to help you relax and unwind
  • Your tolerance for alcohol or drugs is higher than it used to be, and you can consume a lot more than your friends without feeling the effects
  • Others have expressed concern about your substance abuse
  • Your weight or appetite have been affected by alcohol or drugs
  • You feel depressed or anxious

You may find that you know you have developed an unhealthy relationship with substances but feel that you no longer have control. It may also be that the idea of going without alcohol or drugs makes you feel anxious or unwell. This is a key characteristic of alcohol addiction as often the brain tricks people into thinking they need a drink or drugs to cope with daily life.

If this sounds familiar, you may have become physically dependent and you should seek immediate help from a drug and alcohol rehab Glasgow.


Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Programmes at our Glasgow Rehab Clinic

Drug or alcohol rehabilitation is a personalised treatment programme which is designed to stop you from drinking excessive amounts of alcohol or taking drugs. The treatments are carried out at our Glasgow rehab clinic by friendly, professional and highly supportive staff.

As with other addictions, drinking too much alcohol affects your brain chemistry and your ability to reason. If going without a drink or drugs makes you feel unwell but you still convince yourself you’ve got things under control, this is your brain playing tricks on you so you carry on your alcohol or drug addiction.

We offer effective addiction treatment for drug and alcohol abuse at our addiction rehab facility, as well as around-the-clock support and aftercare. This means that you can rest assured that you will be safe and supported throughout the entire recovery process.


What is an Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre Like in Glasgow?

Our drug and alcohol rehab clinic in Glasgow is a friendly, supportive environment in which you can start your road to recovery. Typical rehab treatment programmes last 28 days and consist of detox and therapy sessions.

Drug and Alcohol Detox

During your alcohol and drug rehab treatment, your body and brain will have the chance to recover from the damage alcohol or drugs have caused.

The first step of rehab is the medically assisted withdrawal detoxification process. Our support workers and medical team help you throughout the process and manage withdrawal symptoms.

You may experience severe Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms or Delirium Tremens; dangerous health conditions that require you to be supervised by the round-the-clock medical team here at our Glasgow clinic.

The drug and alcohol detox is a critical stage in your recovery, so please do not attempt to do this yourself at home.

Detox treatment is not an easy process but it’s so important to remember that what you feel during those early stages will be more than worth it in the long run. Medically assisted detox is the best and safest method to overcome drug and alcohol addiction and is the first step of the recovery process.


Our Therapy Addiction Treatment

During your time with us, we will work with you to identify the underlying issues that led you to alcohol or drugs in the first place. For the vast majority of people, understanding key triggers and answering difficult questions have a huge impact on their ability to avoid alcohol or drug abuse in the future.

Some therapies offered at inpatient rehab includes:

  • Group therapy
  • Holistic therapies such as art therapy sessions
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy style sessions
  • Alternative therapies such as yoga and meditation
  • Daily walks
  • Nutritional sessions

Group therapy sessions are known to be very successful at treating drug or alcohol addiction. Addiction therapy and peer support are key to achieving long term recovery.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

For many struggling with addiction, mental health problems arise either as a result of substance abuse or were a contributing factor for the alcohol or drug addiction forming.

This is why dual diagnosis treatment programmes are offered to help address any mental health issues. It is common for mental health problems to get in the way of recovery, which is why therapy sessions, particularly group therapy, are used to treat mental health and physical addiction.

Does Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab Really Work?

Yes, private rehab in Glasgow works when people commit to it.

Drug and alcohol rehab definitely works, but it won’t be an easy process. It’s important that you understand that it’s going to be a challenge, you will be out of your comfort zone and away from your home comforts while you’re staying with us at rehab in Glasgow.

If you want to be successful, you have to be prepared to work hard and accept support. Inpatient addiction treatment is the best form of drug and alcohol treatment available in Glasgow.

Although outpatient treatment programmes are local and free, they are not as successful or as intensive as private rehab, which is why this form of treatment is recommended. Outpatient rehab is a good choice for less severe addictions, however it is not as appropriate for people struggling with long-term addiction.

Call a member of our admissions team to learn more about private drug and alcohol rehab in Glasgow. Seeking residential treatment is the first step to take to overcome drug or alcohol use disorder.


Aftercare at Our Alcohol Rehab Glasgow

Residential rehab programmes typically take 28 days, however longer periods of addiction treatment are available. Once your rehab treatment programme has ended, you will feel better than you have in a long time. But this is just the beginning of your journey.

We will do everything we can to help you stay free from alcohol and drug addiction. Our non-judgemental, highly skilled therapists are here to support you with various forms of therapy today and in the future.

We offer one year of free aftercare to help you during the first difficult year after your addiction treatment programme has ended. These take place as weekly sessions and offer you the group support that is important to help you succeed with addiction recovery.

We also recommend that you seek local outpatient treatment to help you recover in Glasgow after you have left our rehab centre. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are great support networks to keep you on the right recovery track.


Does Alcohol Rehab Affect Custody and Visitation Rights?

Courts and Social Services departments definitely look more favourably on claims for custody or visitation rights if people can show a commitment to making positive changes. If you have completed an alcohol treatment course, you are likely, in many cases, to have a much greater chance than someone who has never sought help with their addiction problems.
