Alcohol Abuse & Rehab

Sadly, alcoholism and alcohol misuse have grown common over the years in Edinburgh. 

People suffer without knowing that they can access alcohol recovery options in Edinburgh.

If you, your friend or loved one is suffering from alcohol abuse, you can access treatment options through us.

We have access to various rehab centers and treatment clinics in Edinburgh and can help guide you through the process.

Alcoholism Causes & ​Rehab

There are many causes of alcohol abuse.

With an increase in the expectations that come with time and age, some people find it hard to cope without help from alcohol.

Some young people fall into the pattern of substance abuse as they try to keep up with their peers.

Others are predisposed to addiction because of family history. It, therefore, takes a little amount of alcohol to send them spiraling down the path of alcoholism. 

Whatever the cause, we grant you easy access and admission to various ​addiction recovery treatment options in and around Edinburgh.

With professional help and monitoring, you can get better and break the pattern of alcohol abuse.

The Process of Alcohol Rehabilitation

Before you are admitted to any facility, ​they'll usually complete a pre-admission assessment over the phone to determine various integral factors that might be causing or encouraging alcohol addiction.

The information gathered helps to tailor your rehab treatment program, and experience, in the clinic.

We help you through these initial stages to ensure that your rehab starts as soon as possible, so you can get better faster.

​Recovering from alcohol addiction, like other rehabilitation processes, follows three major steps. These are:

  • Detox

When someone has been dependent on alcohol for a while, it isn’t a good idea to stop ‘cold turkey.’ An alcohol addict will suffer from withdrawal symptoms once alcohol use is discontinued. These symptoms start can about 6-24 hours after use is discontinued and can last a week or even more.

Withdrawal symptoms can be physical: sweating profusely, shaking and high or low blood pressure. They can also be mental: delusions or hallucinations. These symptoms can be dangerous if they aren’t addressed and handled medically.

Alcohol detox entails taking medication that reduces the pain or intensity of the withdrawal symptoms. The medication is ​usually prescribed by the appropriate medical Doctor within the rehab clinic. Furthermore, you are under the care of healthcare professionals who monitor you through the process.

  • ​Rehab Program

Although ​recovery from alcoholism in Edinburgh is multi-pronged, one of the integral parts or treatment is therapy.

These sessions help to identify your problem area, trigger, patterns and any family history with alcohol abuse. Discovering these things and the role they play informs your recovery.

​Identifying and assessing the underlying emotional discord, that fuels your addiction, is critical to long term success, as simply admitting for a fast detox, may be more likely to result in a relapse.

Through continued treatment therapy, you learn to recognize your triggers and how to address them when they arise. You are also able to break free of unhealthy patterns that lead back to alcohol misuse and abuse.

Inpatient treatment on one of our partner clinics is recommended for more severe cases of alcohol abuse. During this time, you are removed from your ‘using’ environment and housed in a place that is free from alcohol and triggers.

Everyone in a residential clinic is on the same journey. ​This way, it is easier to wean off the dependence on alcohol.

  • Aftercare - ​Beyond Treatment

We strive to ensure that every recommended facility offers aftercare. If you still need to go to counseling, these aftercare services are available.

​For best results, aftercare should be personalised to you and your needs, as well as the discoveries you've made about your addiction whilst in a clinic.

Furthermore, you need to be part of a community that helps to stay sober. AA meetings are recommended to help keep you on track.

Why ​Rehab?

Looking for alcohol rehab Edinburgh isn’t an easy task. When you are looking for help, you need to find it as soon as possible before ​the addicted individual changes their mind.

​We offer advice and options on the fastest ways to access treatment options.

  • Variety Of Treatment Facilities

We have a variety of facilities that you can choose from. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to alcohol rehab Edinburgh. Some people prefer outpatient facilities while others lean toward inpatient ones. Some people prefer to have their own space while undergoing treatment while others don’t mind being around other people. When it comes to cost, some don’t have much to spend on rehab while others have no problem with high costs. With our variety of facilities, you can pick one which suits your needs and preferences. 

  • Personal Care During Recovery

We know how easy it is to get lost in a sea of people at a facility. This is why we only recommend facilities that are not overcrowded and where your individual needs are catered to. From the time treatment starts to aftercare, health professionals are constantly checking up on you at a personal level. Every patient is handled as an individual to ensure that only the best care is offered.

Rehab & Detox ​Costs

Depending on your budget, the severity of dependence on alcohol, concurrent drug, and alcohol abuse, living situation, and length of treatment, alcohol rehab Edinburgh can take varying costs. Our goal is to provide rehab costs options for patients. That way, you are able to access treatment regardless of the aforementioned factors. 

For those who don’t have money, there are facilities that offer subsidized or free treatment. This, however, is dependent on fulfilling certain characteristics. We always present the various options to people before they can settle on a particular facility in the vicinity.

  • Personalised ​Alcoholism Approach

The ​partner clinics on our list offer personalized detox and treatment.

All of this is determined through your first consultation or interview.

The facilities personalize a program for each patient so that one can get better as soon as possible.

This is very important because people are not alike.
