The importance of drug & alcohol detox

Treatment aims to address the entire mental and physical aspects of drug and alcohol addiction. When you enter an Edinburgh treatment clinic, the priority is to treat the physical issue of your alcohol or drug or addiction. This involves a process known in the industry as ‘detox’. Detox is short for detoxification. Medications typically assist detox. The medications will be prescribed at the very begin of your treatment programme. A psychiatrist or other medical doctor must prescribe medications. You can take these medications in order to reduce any discomfort you experience during detox. This is because a drug or alcohol detox causes various ‘withdrawal symptoms’. These symptoms depend on the substance you are addicted to. For instance, an alcohol detox gives rise to different symptoms of withdrawal compared to opiate detox.

Therapy sessions help to identify your problem areas, your trigger patterns and any family history with alcohol abuse. Discovering these things and the role they play will aid in your recovery.

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


We strive to ensure that every recommended facility offers appropriate aftercare. This should be needs-oriented and address any additional needs you may have. It should also include a practical plan for your recovery in day-to-day life.

If you still need to go to counselling, our clinics will be able to offer these aftercare services.

For the best results, aftercare should be personalised to you and your needs, as well as the discoveries you’ve made about your addiction while you were in the clinic.

It is important that you are part of a community that helps to stay sober. Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are often recommended to help keep you on track and work with a sponsor on an ongoing basis.
