Drug Rehab West Dunbartonshire

Finding out about the different centres offering drug rehab in West Dunbartonshire is absolutely integral to getting the right treatment for you or your loved one. There are facilities available in Alexandria, Clydebank and Dumbarton. Finding out about the specific drug (or drugs) you require treatment for helps you determine the specific services you need. It can also be helpful to learn about the different models for the treatment of addiction, because some centres employ one specifically. There are three centres in total for drug rehab in West Dunbartonshire.


Drug Rehab Alexandria, West Dunbartonshire


The drug rehab in Alexandria offers a comprehensive array of treatments, but only helps pregnant women with ongoing or previous drug issues. They have a drop in clinic with a midwife, obstetrician, a social worker and community psychiatric nurse on hand to help patients. The centre can provide inpatient detoxification, or work with a local GP to offer substitute medications (and ones to manage withdrawal symptoms) in a more convenient location.


Medical staff test for blood-borne viruses and can provide antenatal and postnatal services. The psychiatric nurse helps users address the issues which led them to addiction, and teaches them healthier coping mechanisms to help them control their use. The social worker helps the users with things like housing, debt and child protection, providing an aftercare-style service. Women of any age are welcome at the drug rehab in Alexandria.

The only drug rehab in Clydebank provides a wide range of services to anybody struggling with addiction.

They also offer counselling, in both one to one and group sessions. Harm reduction facilities are available, which aim to reduce the risks associated with drug use by providing things like blood-borne virus testing and clean injecting equipment. The centre also has a specialist programme to help users find work, and can assist with the criminal justice system.
