The epitome of rural tranquillity and privacy is available in our rehab in Aberdeenshire. The clinic boasts a blend of the finest Scottish hospitality and experienced addiction counsellors and doctors on-hand. The rehab clinic is surrounded by its own private grounds and several acres of countryside offering clients peace and space to breathe during their recovery. The Aberdeenshire rehab centre also has the advantage of being a fully registered independent hospital with ample facilities and highly trained staff. This is also one of the few locations which offer a full 12-step program. The program is well known for its effective results in helping people struggling with addiction to remain clean and sober after leaving rehabilitation.
The bespoke program offered by the Aberdeenshire rehab clinic is designed for the long-term recovery of their clients. The centre not only offers Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), widely recognised as one of the most effective strategies in dealing with addiction but also Acceptance and Commitments Therapy (ACT). ACT is well known in addiction circles as an effective method of practising mindfulness and changing the thought patterns that lead people into addictive behaviour. It has been found to be effective in helping people achieve the long-term abstinence they need.
With long-term abstinence in mind, the Aberdeenshire rehab clinic also introduces clients to the 12-step program and holds in-house AA meetings. The group Alcoholics Anonymous is well known around the world and membership helps those recovering from alcohol addiction to continue with their recovery and sobriety during and after their stay. The AA and its groups are available around the world providing those suffering from addiction with a support network long after they leave the Aberdeenshire rehab clinic.
Creating a support network is one of the ways in which the clinic counsellors try to ensure continued sobriety. Therefore, family sessions are a cornerstone of the Aberdeenshire rehab centre’s treatment plan and are overseen by the centre’s counsellors and psychiatrist. These sessions help to build strong bonds and create understanding and support between those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction and those that care about them.
One of the features that stands out about the Aberdeenshire rehab centre is that it is a fully registered and equipped hospital specialising in the treatment of addiction sufferers. Therefore, round the clock nursing staff will be available to care for and assist clients, with one staff member to every two clients during the day-time. The clinic also has its own psychiatrist and detox doctor available to give medical advice and provide expert therapy.
The Aberdeenshire rehab clinic has twenty-three beds available in shared single-sex rooms. This improves the chances of immediate admission which can often be important for those struggling with addiction who know they need to get sober and clean as soon as possible. There is also a recreation room with a television and books for clients to relax. Outside in the gardens, there is a picnic area with tables for those who would like to eat ‘al fresco’. Otherwise, meals are taken together in the dining room, and all meals are homemade by the in-house cooks. Special dietary needs and nutrition plans are incorporated into the meals.
After the initial six-week program in the main area of the Aberdeenshire rehab clinic’s clients can move to the second building where they can have a longer stay. At this time, they will be given a more relaxed program which continues with therapies and group sessions but also gives you time for rest and recreation. New healthier habits are key to addiction recovery, and so gym access and opportunities for country walks and other activities such as golf are available.
The length of time you stay in the Aberdeenshire rehab clinic will depend on the nature of your addiction and your individual progress and how you feel about your readiness to return home. The initial medical detox period is usually around a week or more depending on the advice of the detox doctor you will meet upon admission. After this period a six-week residential program is offered by the Aberdeenshire rehab centre. Once you have completed this program, your counsellor and doctors will consult with you about returning home or continuing a more relaxed wellbeing program until you are ready to go back to life outside of the rehab centre.
The Aberdeenshire rehab clinic has an in-house pay phone which is available for clients to use after they have completed their first week of addiction treatment. This is done with a view to reducing distractions and focusing on rehab treatment in the initial period. With this in mind, the Aberdeenshire rehab centre does not allow personal electronic devices to be used during your stay.
Those suffering from addiction benefit greatly from a strong support network in order to recover and stay sober and healthy. Therefore, the Aberdeenshire rehab centre helps to nurture and rebuild the relationships between clients, their families and loved ones. Visits are encouraged as are family sessions in order to keep your family and loved ones involved and connected to your addiction recovery.
