What Are The Differences Between Alcohol/Drug Detox And Rehab?

Rehab refers to the therapeutic elements of a stay in treatment, that tackle the underlying psychological components of addiction, and usually occurs after the initial physical detox stage.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • Individuals content to live in denial about their mental health and continued irresponsible behaviour.

How Do I Work Out How Long To Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Addiction Rehab?

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Here’s an idea of typical treatment options for Anderston and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular simple stay for preliminary detoxification and several therapy sessions.
  • 28 days and above - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Once the person is finally in the rehab clinic, gaining the necessary insights, and visualising their ability to cope with stimuli and stressful situations without the coping mechanism of alcohol or narcotics, only then will it be easier to determine how long treatment should last.

Someone who feels well-resourced already, may be ready to leave drug or alcohol treatment after 28 days; others may take longer.

What Elements Of Drug/Alcohol Treatment Anderston Do I Focus On, For Lasting Recovery?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

Have a honest approach to what you need to achieve out of rehab treatment. 

Use the learnings you've had from experience of previous detoxes, or even previous rehab treatment, to help inform what you should tackle in treatment, where the focus should be, what triggers need underlying or additional work.

It's best to select a Anderston treatment service that will assign a case manager, to ease your way throughout the programme.

Detox

Take an active role in discussion with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist, following your admission to rehab, when agreeing the detox protocol you'll undergo. 

Be open and honest with staff, re previous usage, patterns of use, and recency of use.

By presenting the situation as it is, the specialists will be able to place you on an ideal detox plan and it’ll ensure that you have an easier time at the Rehab Anderston treatment centre.

Therapy Insights

Try to take maximum advantage of the time you have in therapy, e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, and counselling work, as this is where the main psychological breakthroughs can be made, as addiction affects you personally, and your personal pattern of addiction expresses itself in your life.

Planning For The Future

Before committing anything to paper, reflect firstly on the learnings you've gained from support groups, from mutual aid work, from keywork sessions, from one-to-one work. 

In your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Are there any mental health triggers that you have uncovered that you weren't aware of before?

How Many Succeed In Staying Dry Or Clean, Following Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment?

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

Success rates of rehab, in the long term, will vary, since the individual themselves is responsible for their long-term recovery.

In order to measure success metrics, it is now becoming more difficult for recovery centres to stay in contact with former clients over very long periods of time, as most patients are searching for promises regarding very long-term success rates.

Simply put, to succeed in staying sober after you have been through a private rehab, will greatly depend on your will to succeed and follow the teachings.

Rehab is a short-lived primary treatment, conducted in a specialised, secure setting, to help you navigate to the subsequent stage of your recovery journey.

Would Recovery Activities Take A Lot Of Time Out Of My Life, In An Average Week, After Rehab?

This will differ from individual to individual but the common issues include how long the recovery process has taken, the supports in your life, daily triggers in your life at the moment, and the work still to be done in relation to the therapeutic steps during treatment, among others.

As part of their weekly timetable, some clients will have to have an everyday check-in with designated sponsors, group therapy, and several mutual aid sessions or calls per week.

For other to find a firm footing, they will have to attend group therapy several times a week, see professional health practitioners to deal with other complications, gets tons of support from people around them and attend mutual aid sessions.

KEY TAKEAWAY

In this case, a different perspective on the original question could help your recovery journey more.

In our experience, those who do well in long term recovery, i.e. 20-30+ years, are not focused upon how much time recovery takes from their lives, but have instead accepted that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

Recovery isn’t a one-time process that you go through, and end up being sober for the rest of your life.

Being in recovery means that you should be ready for a perpetual process of personal insight, self-approval, and getting real support backing you up.

What Aspects Of Life Need To Change, Dramatically, So That I Can Become Sober?

Great question.

Others have discovered they had to give up a part of themselves that had become enmeshed in an addictive pattern.


It doesn’t imply that we have to put on brave faces and endure lots of emotional baggage to handle the urge to use, rather, we simply evaluate our situation in a controlled setting by learning why we use, and our intentions behind it.

An expert cognitive behavioural therapist will assist you to get the understanding required to eliminate patterns, not forcefully, but via doing away with old ways of handling the situation and learning new ways.

What Are The Top Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Anderston Struggle With?

#1

Early Detox Symptoms

In the first 4-6 days of detox, it can be a difficult time, both emotionally and physically since the mind and body are attempting to cope with the decreased intake of the substance.

This is when you should never be quiet about any symptoms since it will relevant to help staff facilitate a seamless and safe detox process.

#2

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

Clients with established links with loved ones or friends may at first find it challenging when they are cut off.

 This may be a step in a better direction in some situations, where the client's social community comprises those involved in active addiction, such as dealers and others in active addiction.

But in cases where the connections, for instance, loved ones provide real support, it is advisable to sit down with the admissions crew and plan for supervised visits to make the person’s experience less traumatising.

#3

Emotional Transformation

Transitioning both emotionally and psychologically from the addictive mindset which involves chaos, dependence and co-dependence can prove difficult.

Although this usually becomes easier with longer stay times in rehab.

It is advisable to view rehab not as a facility that is an end to some means, but as a time for learning from others in recovery with you.

 The longer you spend in treatment, the more you will gain in your recovery journey.

Are There Any Common Patterns In Those Who Aren't Successful In Long Term Addiction Recovery?

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Not seeking support or assistance when experiencing a trigger situation.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • A bad initial experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

How Can I Tell If Rehab Will Work For Me, And My History With Drugs Or Alcohol Addiction?

Even the worst addicts can change, through dedication and determination, especially with commitment to ongoing therapy work.

Broadly speaking, if you are willing to receive assistance, willing to follow instructions, accept that your life is your own responsibility, and are willing to pursue the services and care needed to help you heal, your chances of success will improve.

How Are AA And Rehab Different?

Rehab Clinic Treatment
  • Rehab essentially involves services like relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic intervention under one roof, by one provider in a clinically regulated environment.
AA Meetings
  • For a non-clinical and mutual aid background where individuals can freely pour out their hearts regarding their recovery journey, AA is the best place.

I Don't Think I Need Rehab, I Could Taper Down On My Own.

In private rehab, there is professional feedback on the whole detox programme, safe withdrawal, supervision of progress, all done in regulated surroundings.

Tapering off alcohol minus any professional aid can harm you and is not advisable.

When professional management of symptoms is absent, there can be health complications such as seizures, heart issues, liver problems, fluctuations in blood pressure, among others.

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

Check with the individual rehab clinic you've engaged with, *before* entering treatment, about their refund policy.

Generally, it's extremely unlikely they will offer any form of refund for a relapse following treatment, since (brutal truth here) *you* are the only one responsible for your long-term recovery.

This does not mean you have to do all the work; but it does mean you need to clearly identify where you need help or support, for weak areas in your recovery, and actively ask for that help or support until you receive it.

Some clinics offer an additional stay if relapse occurs, but again, this varies, check with the prospective provider you're speaking with.

What Are 9 Essential Questions To Ask A Potential Treatment Provider Near Anderston, Glasgow?

#1

Are you experienced in dealing with clients in the same situation as mine, regarding detox and intake levels?

#2

What treatment duration do you suggest for my needs?

#3

Can I join your programme for a short stay at first and then add additional days later?

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

Is it possible to have close relatives visit me in the clinic? 

#7

What changes have you made to your service as a result of Covid-19?

#8

Can I get copies of the most up-to-date Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports, plus ratings?

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

You'll usually complete a telephone assessment, and most providers at this point will request payment of a deposit, in order to hold a room for you, in their facility. 

Next, the admissions team would ask their personnel for medical permission to admit you and be admitted 24 to 48 hours later.

Do Rehab Clinics Deal With Needs For Urgent Help Relating To Alcohol Or Drugs?

Important: In case of a serious health issue, seek medical assistance locally, without delay.

KEY TAKEAWAY

You can never substitute rehab for competent medical care. Rehab clinics offer standard detox services followed by therapeutic intervention.

Still, rehab clinics are not hospitals and they are usually not equipped to deal with complicated health issues such as liver problems and seizures.

What if your detox or rehab case is not an emergency? In this case, you can gain admission in many clinics within one or two days.
