Rehab treatment in the Aberdeenshire rehab clinic

The bespoke program offered by the drug and alcohol rehab Aberdeenshire 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). The 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 drug and alcohol rehab in Aberdeenshire 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 private alcohol detox Aberdeenshire 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.

There Is No Rehab Centre Near Me, What Should I Do?

This means seeking advice to find the best rehab centre and therapeutic program that fits you (or your loved one) personally.
I Can’t Afford Private Residential Treatment. What Should I Do?
Contact your own GP and accurately & honestly explain to him or her your addiction problems and express your desire for help and treatment.
