Therapy and treatment programmes
The first step to recovery for the patient is to undergo an initial assessment to identify the issues, make any diagnosis and draw up the most appropriate treatment plan. For our addictions treatment programme we offer a free initial addiction assessment.

Family programme and aftercare
Within the addiction treatment programme, where possible, we encourage the patient's family to become involved in the treatment programme as this can help give a greater understanding of the illness - hopefully leading to a speedier recovery once the patient has returned home.
In addition to medical excellence we provide a safe relaxed atmosphere at the hospital, which facilitates the recovery process.
Accommodation and facilities
The environment we create for patients is as important as the treatment itself. To this end, each patient has the privacy of his or her own comfortable bedroom, with flat screen television, DVD player, telephone and en-suite facilities.
Patients are encouraged to have their meals in the main dining room, which offers an excellent choice of dishes and our chefs will be pleased to cater for any special dietary requirements.
The hospital has a number of large comfortable patient lounges, a quiet room and a games room, the Glasgow Priory Hospital also has an arrangement with local health and wellbeing provider Nuffield Health's Wellbeing & Fitness.
The hospital also has a FREE Wi-Fi network for patients to use.
For those that enjoy a country walk or to jog, the beautiful Queen’s Park is only a five minute walk from the hospital.
