Choosing to embark on your recovery from drug or alcohol addiction in Ayrshire offers all the tranquillity and warmth that is so desperately needed during this challenging period of your life.
Those who choose to recover from a drug or alcohol addiction in the Ayrshire rehab will find experienced staff and a safe and welcoming atmosphere.
The rehab centre has been helping people struggling with addiction for many years and has experienced addiction counsellors and a psychiatrist specialising in mental health in those dealing with drug and alcohol problems. The clinic specialises in combining mental health treatment with rehab centre’s staff, your recovery isn’t just about stopping substance abuse but finding your happiness in life again.
The rehab combines the peaceful and therapeutic surroundings of rural Scotland with easy access from the international airport and transports hubs in nearby Glasgow. The proximity to Glasgow means that a quick admission process is possible as the staff understand that these situations can often be urgent. This clinic is also ideal for people who are suffering from addiction in Scotland, access is easy, and it is possible for family and friends to visit to support you during your recovery. The clinic also offers a pickup service within Scotland for those who prefer that transport be arranged by the centre.
The area is quiet and there is plenty of opportunities to get outside and go for walks, exercise and see the sights. It has been shown that exercise and even just spending time outdoors is highly beneficial to your mental health and decreases stress. This is also a chance to spend some time talking, in a relaxed and informal way, with others who are going through the same struggle as you are.
A stay in a rehab centre will almost always begin with a full detox. The Ayrshire rehab offers a medical detox under the supervision of a specialist doctor. This is highly recommended for both drug and alcohol addictions as it significantly reduces withdrawal symptoms. Severe withdrawal can be one of the hurdles that people struggling with substance abuse fear and medical detox can help to alleviate these concerns.
The rehab provides treatment for both alcohol and drug addiction issues as well as mental health problems. The clinic uses CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) to help treat addiction problems. This is a widely respected approach that allows you to identify the deep-rooted causes of addiction through role-play, counselling and group therapy.
As addiction and mental health issues often go hand in hand the Ayrshire clinic has both psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses on staff. Using the well-renowned therapy method of DBT Dialectical Behaviour Therapy the staff help residents to work on emotional regulation and mindfulness. This combination therapy is vitally important for long term recovery and often continues after a stay in rehab as part of the aftercare program.
You will also find that the other half of recovery is rediscovering your health in body and mind. In a vicious circle, addiction damages our body and depletes our spirits. We may find we cannot exercise or enjoy hobbies due to substance abuse, which in turn leads to deeper unhappiness. Rehabilitation will in part be rebuilding your physical strength and starting to enjoy activities and mindfulness. Walking on the nearby beach and enjoying the outdoors in the surrounding countryside. It is also possible for your loved ones to visit you and take part in these activities with you. This can either be simply a fun visit to stay connected or as part of your treatment program.
The accommodation offers tastefully refurbished single occupancy large ensuite bedrooms. Clients have use of two comfortable lounges, a dining room and a beautiful garden area.
Delicious home-cooked meals and home baking are prepared daily by the catering team with all dietary needs catered for.
Most residential rehab treatment lasts from around a month up to three months. This includes a full detox supervised by a doctor and several weeks of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and counselling to help you to determine the cause and triggers of your addiction.
As long as using your phone or computer in a rehab centre does not hinder your recovery in any way, you are more than welcome to use them. It is important to stay in touch with your support network and keep them informed of your progress and lean on them during this difficult time.
Life after rehab will be a new and liberating experience for those who have been suffering from addiction. It is an opportunity to find new passions and discover the things that you truly enjoy in life. The Ayrshire rehab provides a year of aftercare to all former residents including telephone service and continued counselling. For those who live in the area, there are meeting groups of previous residents.
If you are from another area of Scotland or further afield the staff will help you to find a suitable group in your local area. This can be very helpful as larger cities such as London, Edinburgh and Glasgow can have large numbers of groups that specialise in different ages and addictions. The best-known groups are the AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) however there are many local community groups in smaller towns and the one that is organised by the rehab centre.
