Both of the centres available for alcohol rehab in South Lanarkshire are located in Hamilton. If you’re unable to travel to Hamilton, we provide telephone counselling for a small fee, which is suitable treatment if you won’t go through serious physical withdrawal. Try to gauge the severity of your own or your loved one’s drinking; if it isn’t likely to be taking a severe physical toll, counselling is the only treatment you really need. If it’s more severe, you may require benzodiazepines during withdrawal or an anti-alcohol medication.
Alcohol Rehabilitation Treatment Centres , South Lanarkshire
There are only two centres which offer alcohol rehab in Hamilton, and these both only offer psychological treatments. One of the centres helps drinkers of any age and mainly treats through structured counselling. This helps individuals identify the factors which cause them to rely on alcohol and teaches them new, healthier coping mechanisms. They also offer general advice and can help alcoholics with the criminal justice system. Aftercare is on offer for any drinkers who’ve already been through treatment, which helps them settle back into sober life.
The other alcohol rehab in Hamilton is a service which specialises in structured day programmes. These use counselling and keyworking sessions in combination with additional activities designed to do things like improve confidence and help with employment. Any drinkers over the age of 16 can attend treatment at this centre and they also have an aftercare service. The programme lasts for 12 weeks, and runs from Monday to Friday.
Unfortunately, neither of the options for alcohol rehab in South Lanarkshire offer medical help during withdrawal. We can help you make the right decision if you are likely to need medical assistance, and have a detailed knowledge of the centres available in neighbouring counties. We can help any alcoholics or their loved ones determine their treatment requirements and find a centre which offers the services you need. Our advice is absolutely free, so pick up the phone and see what we can do for you!
