What addictions are treated at Priory Hospital Glasgow?
At Priory Hospital Glasgow, we are able to provide expert, bespoke treatment for the following substance and behavioural addictions:
Alcohol addiction, also known as ‘alcoholism’ or ‘alcohol use disorder’, develops as a result of an individual consuming alcohol in an excessive and repeated manner, to the extent that they become dependent on this in order to function effectively on a daily basis. If expert alcohol addiction treatment is not sought, alcoholism can result in a whole host of physical and psychological problems and can even be fatal.
Drug addiction is characterised by an individual repeatedly taking or administering drugs, until they become both physically and psychologically dependent on the substance in order to function. Individuals may become addicted to illegal drugs such as cocaine or heroin, or legal prescription drugs, usually prescribed for pain relief purposes. With continued use, illegal and legal drug use can soon become a serious problem and can result in drug overdose and even death.
Cocaine addiction is one of the most common forms of drug addiction that we treat at Priory Glasgow. Cocaine is a stimulant drug that typically comes as a white powder. The most common method of consuming cocaine is via snorting, although it is also possible for cocaine to be injected. Cocaine use results in extreme euphoria, which can be highly addictive to many people, and causes tolerance to build quickly.
Other behavioural addictions that we are able to treat include:
At Priory Hospital Glasgow, we recognise that addictive behaviours can sometimes develop as a result of struggling with other mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, and stress.
That’s why our expert addiction treatment team at Priory Glasgow not only have the expertise to treat your substance and behavioural addictions, but are also able to address any co-occurring mental health conditions that may be triggering or intensifying your addiction.
