Hundreds in Anniesland, Glasgow struggle to find the right help for alcohol or drug addiction.

Maybe we can be your guide.

Here are the answers to the critical few FAQs you need to know, to help secure alcohol or drug treatment that meets your needs, near Anniesland, Glasgow.

Let's get started.

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

Generally, addiction detox and rehab services, go hand in hand.

Rehabilitation refers to the therapeutic part of treatment that work on the hidden psychological aspects of addictive habits, and comes after the initial phase of physical detox.

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab is NOT advisable for:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • Individuals who are hesitant to make sense of their drug/alcohol addiction and stick to the subsequent recommendations provided.
  • People with no qualms about continuing with their destructive behaviour and not ready to personally pull up their sleeves and help themselves.

Is A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab Always The Same Length?

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Anniesland and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • More than 28 days - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

KEY TAKEAWAY

As long as the individual is not yet in the rehab clinic, it will be hard to estimate the duration of treatment. Why is this? Because it's only during treatment that we can evaluate reactions to triggers minus the presence of drugs and alcohol.

After twenty eight days have passed, if a person is in a better state, they can leave the treatment centre. Still, others can stay on if the rehab is not yet complete.

How Do I Make Best Use Of My Time, In Drug/Alcohol Rehab Treatment Anniesland?

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

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

By reflecting on previous detox and rehab centres, you can easily identify what areas to concentrate on during treatment, and the triggers that still have power over you and need dealing with.

Try to pick a Anniesland clinic which provides a personally assigned case manager, who works with you personally, throughout the addiction rehabilitation programme.

Physical 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. 

Ensure that you tell it as it as, in relation to previous use, patterns of abuse, alcohol intake, and recent use.

Keep in mind that you have to give accurate information, as it will be crucial in deciding what kind of detox programme you will be put on.

Therapeutic Time

It is true that people have particular addictive trends that rule over their lives. This is why it is advisable to concentrate on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling sessions to get some psychological wins.

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

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. 

Where do you feel most helpless in your recovery process, and need enhanced support levels to make it through? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Work, From A Statistical Perspective?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

In the long run, how a person fares in rehab is directly proportional to the effort they put in to the process.

Clients searching for rehab services are increasingly seeking reassurance about the success of the services offered and this has made it hard to keep an eye on *all* former clients for purposes of ongoing evaluation.

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-term, primary care intervention in a specialised setting, that can support you in reaching the next steps of your bigger recovery journey.

How Much Time Will Ongoing Long-Term Addiction Recovery Take Out Of My Life Each Week?

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.

For others, their weekly calendar will involve some group therapy and a daily meeting with their sponsor.

For others, it might be several sessions of therapy, attending secondary specialists for other health issues, and family support, amongst others, before a stable footing is found.

KEY TAKEAWAY

However, a little change of perspective could be useful here.

We have observed over the years that people who have realised that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*, rather than a process that takes from their lives, tend to enjoy long term success, even over 20-30 years sober.

It is wrong to assume that recovery involves some specific secret steps that you go through to achieve a lifetime of sobriety.

Recovery is a continuous exercise that involves a lot of introspection, self-acceptance and having a supportive network around you.

What Do I Have To Give Up, To Become Sober?

Excellent question.

Others starting out in recovery found out that it was vital to let go of an old part of themselves ingrained in addictive patterns.


It doesn't mean that we must smile and endure immense emotional tension to release the urge to drink or consume drugs, but rather to realise the true underlying causes, in a clinical setting.

A skilled mental health therapist can help you gain the insight needed to release a pattern, not through sheer force, but by understanding, and releasing an old way of achieving something and tackling the issue in a new way, for the first time.

Are There Elements Of Anniesland Addiction Treatment, More Trying Than Others?

#1

Initial Detox

The first 48 to 72 hours can be traumatic since the mind and body of the person is in the process of adapting to the lessened substance intake.

By speaking out regarding symptoms during this period, you will enable your specialist to come up with a more comfortable detox plan.

#2

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

Individuals with deep family connections or friendships may at first have a hard time coping with the loss of connection.

 But when these connections comprise of parties directly involved in drug or alcohol abuse such as sellers and other addicts, cutting links is recommended.

For some individuals who are used to support from family and loved ones, it can be stressful leaving them and getting into the clinic. This is why there should be a discussion with the clinic regarding visits and communication with family.

#3

Moving Beyond The Mindset Of Addiction

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 the timeframe you have to do this, the greater the longer-term rewards are likely to be.

What Are The Most Common Reasons For Failure In Recovery Or Alcohol/Drug Rehab?

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • 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 from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • A bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • Unwillingness to let go of, or break contact with, a previous known trigger for addictive tendencies or behaviour.

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

This can't be predicted easily since even the worst addictive habits can be broken by being steadfast in following the process, specifically the therapy regimen.

In essence, to have a smooth journey of recovery, you must be prepared to accept assistance, adhere to advice, be responsible for your actions. And, to accept to embrace the requisite support and help.

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering 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.

Without professional supervision of symptoms, medical emergencies are possible, such as cardiovascular issues, blood pressure changes, risk of seizure, liver complications, etc.

It's vital to consult your regular medical professional before registering for any kind of alcohol treatment. This is non-negotiable.

Do I Get Treatment Costs Reimbursed If I Relapse After Treatment?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

Essentially, very few clinics can offer refund after you relapse because long-term recovery is the responsibility of the client.

Does this mean that you are responsible for all the work? No. In as much you have to put in some work, it is recommended that you look for vulnerabilities in your own recovery and actively ask to be helped.

Other rehab clinics provide an extended stay if there is a relapse but again it is important to inquire first.

What Should I Ask, When Vetting Treatment Clinics Near Anniesland, Glasgow?

#1

What is your track record in dealing with cases similar to mine?

#2

What treatment duration do you suggest for my needs?

#3

Can I admit for detox-only, then increase my stay once admitted?

#4

Please elaborate on options for relapse prevention?

#5

Are the aftercare services part of the final charges?

#6

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

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#8

Can you send me a copy of your latest Care Quality Commission or Care Inspectorate inspection reports and ratings?

#9

What is your refund policy?

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. 

The next step the provider would take is to ask the clinical staff for medical consent. Thereafter, it can take one to two days to be admitted.

For Urgent Or Emergency Drug/Alcohol Problems, Does A Rehab Centre Take Care Of That?

Important: in the event of serious emergency, you must contact your local emergency department and access qualified medical care immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab is not a substitute for qualified emergency care. Rehabs commonly offer regular, non-urgent detox solutions, plus therapeutic help.

Nevertheless, do not confuse a rehab centre with a hospital as it doesn’t have the equipment or personnel to handle advanced medical issues like liver decomposition, seizures and other problems.

But if your problem is not emergency based, you can be admitted within 24 to 48 hours.
