Alcohol addiction isn’t easy to kick without a helping hand, so finding out about the options for alcohol rehab Scotland is absolutely essential if you’re hoping to get sober. Different facilities offer different services, so it’s important to find out as much as you can before you make your decision. Centres are available all across Scotland, from the northern islands such as Orkney right down to the regions bordering on England in the Scottish Borders. The majority of centres are found in Glasgow and Edinburgh, but most regions are adequately served by centres.
Alcohol Rehabilitation Treatment North Scotland
Several centres offer alcohol rehab in the north of Scotland, but it isn’t as widely covered as the more central regions of the country. On the island of Orkney, there are a couple of options, but detoxification isn’t available, with the options focusing more on the psychological elements of treatment. You can find treatment in Elgin on the mainland, and there are also options in Aberdeen, Fraserburgh, Peterhead, Perth and Inverurie. Detoxification is available at the centre in Inverurie, making it the best option for the heaviest drinkers.
Alcohol Treatment Programmes Scotland
Dumfries and Galloway, South Lanarkshire and Scottish Borders have centres offering alcohol rehab in the south of Scotland. Both of the centres in South Lanarkshire are located in Hamilton, and the majority of those in Scottish Borders are found in Galashiels (including one with detoxification services). You can also find detoxification at West Linton in Scottish Borders. There are also centres in Dumfries, Castle Douglas and Stranraer, as well as plenty over the border in the north of England. Detoxification is also available at one of the centres in Dumfries, with the remainder of the centres focusing on psychological support.
Alcohol Counselling Programmes West Scotland
Most of the centres for alcohol rehab in the west of Scotland are found in Glasgow, which has options for inpatient and outpatient detoxification, as well as plenty of centres offering psychological support. You can also find treatment in Greenock, Barrhead, Dumbarton, Stornoway, Johnstone, Coatbridge and Motherwell. Residential treatment can be found in Paisley and Coatbridge, which is particularly useful if you’ve tried to sober up before and relapsed.
Alcohol Treatment Centres Scotland
Two cities dominate the options for alcohol rehab in the East of Scotland, with Dundee and Edinburgh offering numerous rehab centres each. If you can travel to either of these cities, you’ll have more than enough possibilities for treatment. Outside of the large cities, treatment is available in Bonnyrigg, Dalkieth, Kirkcaldy, Leven and Falkirk. However, it’s worth finding out more about each option before you make your decision, because some centres cater to specific clientele. For example, the centre in Falkirk only helps young people aged between 12 and 18.
