The Need for Rehabs in Glasgow
Glasgow has some of the worst rates for substance abuse in the world. There are different theories to explain why addiction has gotten such a hold on the city – some say it is due to poverty, others try to blame the culture, and there are even suggestions it may be because of lack of sunshine. The likelihood is that it is going to be a combination of many factors.
The parts of Glasgow most associated with drug abuse would include Easterhouse, Springburn, Pollok, Baillieston, Possil, Castlemilk, and Drumchapel, but these are just the areas where this type of behaviour is more out in the open. In recent years, there has been a rise in prescription drug addiction, and this is often hidden behind ‘laced curtains’.
How to Find a Suitable Rehab in Glasgow for Alcohol or Drugs
It may be a long time before we fully understand the causes driving drug addiction in Glasgow, but the one thing we can be sure of is that a lack of effective treatment options is leaving people trapped in this situation. There are some fairly decent private rehabs in the city such as The Priory Hospital Glasgow, but this type of option can be too expensive for most of us. There are also organisations like Turning Point which do great work.
The reality is that if you are looking for NHS/government funded rehab in Glasgow, you may not have many options. The number of people engaging in substance abuse is on the rise, but the resources available for dealing with the problem is dwindling. Rehabs that rely on government funding are having to close their doors – a good example of this would be Red Tower and Ronachan House which both closed when Glasgow City Council stopped paying for clients to go there. There can be tough criteria in order to qualify for free rehab treatment, and even if you do qualify, you may be put on a long waiting list. It seems unlikely that this situation is going to improve any time soon.
