Our addiction treatment programme in Scotland
Our intensive addiction treatment programme for alcohol and drug addiction is a 28-day residential service. It allows you to tackle the physical side of your addiction through our detox programme, address the underlying causes and triggers for your addictive behaviours, develop useful coping strategies and pave the way to long-term recovery. We provide an evidence-based programme that is tailored to individual needs, all structured within National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines. Priory Hospital Glasgow’s addiction treatment programme is underpinned by the renowned 12-Step addiction treatment approach, which was first pioneered by the organisation Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). This model encourages lifelong abstinence and focuses on your motivation to change. The 12-Step approach has been successfully used to treat millions of people struggling with addictions worldwide, and is designed to empower you to resume the meaningful, addiction-free life you deserve.
If you or someone you know is struggling with a substance or behavioural addiction, it’s important to recognise that you don’t have to suffer on your own; treatment is available. We ensure that you’re placed at the centre of the addiction treatment process, and receive addiction treatment that has been tailored according to your needs and requirements. This approach means that you will be involved in all decisions regarding your treatment and care, and will be allocated to the most appropriate addiction specialist for your needs in order to produce the best outcomes for you.

What addictions are treated at Priory Hospital Glasgow?
At Priory Hospital Glasgow, we provide expert treatment for the following substance and behavioural addictions:
Alcohol addiction, also known as ‘alcoholism’ or ‘alcohol use disorder’, develops when you consume alcohol in an excessive and repeated manner, to the extent that you become dependent on this in order to function effectively on a daily basis. Without treatment, alcoholism can result in a whole host of physical and psychological problems and can even be fatal.
Drug addiction develops when an individual repeatedly takes or administers drugs, until they become both physically and psychologically dependent on the substance in order to function. People can 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 death.
Cocaine addiction is one of the most common forms of drug addiction that we treat at Priory Hospital Glasgow. Cocaine is a stimulant drug that usually comes as a white powder. The most common method of consuming cocaine is by snorting it, although it’s also possible for it 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 can treat include:
- Gambling addiction
- Love and sex addiction
- Internet addiction
- Shopping addiction
At Priory Hospital Glasgow, we recognise that addictive behaviours can sometimes develop because of 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 your addiction or making it worse.
