Once a client has made the decision to commit to residential treatment, or is waiting to be accepted for statutory funding, admissions staff will provide up to six weeks prehab support to sustain their initial motivation to achieve change. This is delivered via a combination of clinic visits, community appointments and digital health platforms.
One to One Counselling:
It is also possible to access individual one-to-one counselling with an addictions therapist on a sessional or hourly basis. This service runs from the clinic or can be facilitated via our digital health platform. This service is particularly appropriate for people who may feel that a residential intervention is not a viable alternative or suitable for their needs.
Prehab is available to everyone:
As with all areas of the country Aberdeenshire is an unfortunately an area affected by alcohol and drug addiction. We are actively finding ways to prevent the deep hurt and loss of a person that addiction can cause. Instead of avoiding the fact that addiction is prominent in our area we are here to work with families, companies and individuals to rehabilitate but also to offer prehab counselling services to vulnerable people.
Getting there First counts
Our Prehab service not only offers a comprehensive lifeline to those who are waiting for a placement at Alexander clinic, but also, it can be used to advise and educate people to the signs of alcoholism, drug and activity abuse in a family member, a work colleague or even yourself!
Prevention is Better than Cure
After Years of working in the industry and working in social sector industries Alexander Clinic have illustrated within the prehab work that prevention and highlighting and fully educating how addiction will effect family, the individual, friends and colleagues much more than non addicted people previously imagined. Prevention has always been a better or easier process to implement than to cure someone of there addiction and the harm it has caused.
