All treatment providers we recommend are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) or Care Inspectorate.
In recent years, police in Scotland, along with Turning Point Scotland’s Ayrshire Prevention, Early Intervention and Recovery Service (PEAR) have been patrolling the streets of Irvine and offering support to those struggling with drug or alcohol addiction.
The aim has been to crack down on substance abuse in the area and get more people in to drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine, something that is sorely needed.
In addiction treatment, rehab is usually used to refer to an inpatient clinical facility where someone goes to overcome their addiction with the help of addiction specialists and trained medical professionals.
The detox stage is not always necessary, but if your addiction causes physical withdrawal symptoms – such as alcohol or heroin – you will need to detox first.
The rehabilitation stage is when you attend therapies and treatments designed to help you overcome your addiction.
The aftercare stage is designed to continue to care for you after you have returned home.
When you attend private drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine, you will be given a treatment plan that is tailored to your own individual needs.
The staff will determine your treatment plan using the following factors:
Based on their findings, the staff will decide what treatments you need and how long you will be required to stay at the facility.
These factors will determine the cost of your stay at drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine.
The cost also varies depending on the facility you choose.
Many facilities can keep their costs low by offering basic accommodation and shared rooms.
However, some facilities are considered high-end and offer some extra luxuries like spas and pools in large, peaceful surroundings.
These high-end facilities can cost up to £70,000 per month.
However, many facilities charge anywhere between £1,000 and £10,000 per week.
It is also worth noting that most facilities offering drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine have payment plans to make it more affordable, and most accept health insurance as part-payment.

If you are worried about the substance use of someone you know, there are some steps that can be taken before you bring up the idea of rehab.
Many people believe that the only options are a traditional intervention or rehab, however, traditional interventions don’t always go as planned, and not everyone is open to the idea of rehab straight away.
Non-traditional interventions – one example of which is the CRAFT approach – are becoming more popular in Irvine and the surrounding areas.
Community Reinforcement And Family Training uses the help of a professional interventionalist who can help and support the family throughout the process of helping their loved one.
CRAFT interventions do not require any sort of confrontation.
With the help of a professional interventionalist, people using the CRAFT approach to interventions will learn how they have been inadvertently enabling their loved ones addiction by lending them money or making excuses for them.
Families will learn how to make their loved one accountable for their decisions, so they are left to deal with the consequences of their actions themselves.
Finally, when the time is right, they will be told exactly how to bring up the idea of attending rehab so that it is better received.
The only way to find out exactly what treatments are available in each facility is to contact them directly.
This is because different facilities offer different treatment options.
However, there are some commonly used treatments across most facilities that offer drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine.
We are on hand 24/7 to answer any questions you have and give free and confidential advice.
It is possible to get addiction treatment through the NHS in Irvine, however, it is worth noting that only a very small percentage of people get accepted for treatment on the NHS.
Many people turn to the NHS straight away because they believe that privately funded rehab is too costly.
However, the NHS is already incredibly stretched and they are unfortunately unable to offer the same level of care that you can expect from a private facility offering drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine.
It is important to weigh up the pros and cons of both privately funded and NHS funded rehabilitation in Irvine.
Some points to be taken in to consideration are:
If you would like to discuss your options more in-depth, please contact us today.
An alcohol addiction – sometimes called an alcohol dependency or alcohol use disorder – is when someone feels that they cannot function correctly without taking alcohol.
Someone with an alcohol addiction may feel sick until they have taken a drink, and they usually begin to lose interest in hobbies or activities that do not involve drinking.
They usually have problems limiting the amount of alcohol they drink, and they will need to drink more alcohol to continue to feel the desired effects of drinking.
You may be suffering from alcohol use disorder if:
Alcohol is easily available and widely accepted in today’s society, so many people believe that it is not dangerous.
However, in 2020, almost 9,000 people in the UK died from alcohol-specific causes – an 18.6% increase from 2019.
Alcohol also causes a physical addiction, which means that you will suffer from physical withdrawal symptoms when you give it up, and it is not safe to give up alcohol ‘cold-turkey’.
When you attend drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine for an addiction to alcohol, you will have to spend your first 7 to 10 days going through a medically assisted detox.
This means that you will be prescribed Librium to ease the symptoms of withdrawal, and a doctor will keep a close eye on you while you detox.
During this time, you will not usually be well enough to attend therapy.
This means that your therapy will begin only after the detox is complete.
It is recommended to spend around 28 days in drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine when you are battling an alcohol dependency.
Users of cocaine report feeling short bursts of intense focus and energy.
However, when the drug has wore off, people often end up taking more in a single session.
As well as taking cocaine several times because of the short-lived effects, they are also needing more of the drug to feel the desired effects.
However, drug dealers often mix their cocaine with other substances in order to make more money from it.
This means that there is no way to know what it is mixed with.
While cocaine is addictive, it does not cause a physical addiction.
You will not need to go through a medically assisted detox if you are only addicted to cocaine.
Many people can overcome an addiction to cocaine within 2 weeks in private drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine.
Treating a cocaine addiction as an outpatient will likely take longer.
Heroin is dangerous and addictive, and once you become addicted to it, it can be incredibly difficult and dangerous to recover.
It is most commonly injected, and people become so lost in their addiction that they often resort to sharing needles, which opens them up to a range of other possibly deadly illnesses such as HIV.
Heroin causes a physical dependency which means that you cannot quit ‘cold-turkey’ – instead, you need to go through a medical detox to safely be weaned off the dangerous substance.
This usually involves a replacement drug called methadone.
You will be prescribed methadone by a doctor at the facility, and your dosage will be gradually reduced until you are substance free.
Because you will be too unwell during the first week to attend therapy, it is normally recommended that a person spends around a month in drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine to fully recover from a drug addiction as dangerous as this one.
Cannabis is arguably one of the most widely used drugs in the UK, and many people believe that it should be legalised due to it’s supposed healing qualities.
However, there have been very few scientific studies that back these claims, and cannabis users often report feeling paranoid and anxious while taking the drug.
It is commonly mixed with tobacco and inhaled directly into the lungs.
This means that you are also adding to the negative affects that this drug already has on your overall health.
Cannabis does not cause a physical addiction, however, so you can safely stop taking it without the need for a medical detox.
However, it is a good idea to have someone with you because the cravings in the first few days will be intense.
You can usually expect to fully recover from this drug addiction in a private drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine in as little as 10 days.
One of the many reasons why private drug and alcohol rehab in Irving has higher success rates than council-funded rehab, is that it focuses on dual-diagnosis.
Dual diagnosis is when you have other co-occurring mental health conditions running parallel to your addiction.
If you only treat the addiction, its underlying causes are not treated, and the chances of relapse are high.
However, if the whole person is treated, and any mental health condition they have is also treated alongside the addiction, the root cause of the addiction is uncovered and dealt with.
When someone has control of their mental health and they no longer feel the need to turn to harmful substances to cope, they are less-likely to relapse.
Yes, every good rehab service will consider aftercare a vital part of the recovery process and you will not be left to deal with things alone once you leave the facility.
Each facility will have its own unique aftercare policy, however, some common types of aftercare offered are:
These are group meetings often held in church halls or community centres.
Anyone can attend, and while they are technically free, a small donation is usually expected.
These sessions also commonly take place in community centres.
SMART stands for Self-Management And Recovery Training.
A facilitator will oversee these meetings and be on hand to answer any questions.
You may get a home detox kit if you have relapsed and the staff at the facility feel that you are able to recover safely at home.
These groups are for friends and family members of someone with a drug addiction or an alcohol addiction to find support.
Sometimes, people struggling with an addiction will attend and listen to the stories of how addiction has negatively affected relationships.
Many facilities offering drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine offer outpatient services for a certain length of time after you have checked out of the facility.
You may also be referred to the local drug and alcohol team to continue getting any help or support you may need.
In Irvine, this is the North Ayrshire Drug and Alcohol Recovery Services (NADAARS).
They are a charity will help you find community support groups or any other help you require.
