Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

Usually, in residential addiction treatment, rehab and detox are delivered together.

Rehab can be described as the therapeutic component of residential treatment and it takes care of the subconscious psychological aspects of addiction.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • 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.

 

What's The Ideal Treatment Length For A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab?

How long you will be a resident of the rehab centre is influenced by your particular situation.

Look at the treatment options near Arden and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Common detox of 7 to 10 days for alcohol or drug treatment, without therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • 28 days and above - Typical stay, incorporating considerable therapy and planning for the future’s aftercare services.

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.

In the event of significant progress in the treatment centre after the 28 days have passed, one can leave the facility, although some people might stay for a bit longer.

 

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

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

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

 

Use previous work in detox or rehabilitation to understand what areas need your focus, and the triggers that still need a lot of attention.

Life will be much easier if you pick a rehab clinic in Arden that will provide you with a personal case manager to help you cope with the process.

 

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

After admission, take an active part in the conversation with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist before committing to the detox procedure that you will undergo. 

It is vital to be transparent to the staff about how often you use, alcohol intake, and the last time you used/drank.

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.

 

Therapy Time

Use the sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy in the rehab facility wisely, since it is where psychological gains are made.

Aftercare Planning

It pays to assess your progress from the support group sessions, therapy, keywork workshops and one-on-one discussions. 

 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

How Likely Am I To Achieve Long Term Recovery, After Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. By staying in a secure environment, people are more inclined to finish the detox programme.

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.

 

The short answer here is that success is down to you - a rehab clinic can provide the best therapy and support in the world - but if you take no action or pay no attention, success will be lacking.

Rehab is a brief primary care process in supervised surroundings to help you reach the next phase of your recovery plan.

 

After Addiction Rehab, Does Recovery Take Up A Lot Of Time?

This will vary depending on (e.g.) how far along your recovery journey you are; how many supports you have around you; how many day-to-day triggers you typically experience in your life right now; how much left over work you had from the therapeutic gains made in treatment; and many others.

In some cases, some clients’ weekly schedules are upheld by everyday check-ins with respective sponsors and some mutual aid sittings every week.

 

Other will only make it after multiple mutual aid sessions, several group therapy sessions, a strong family support network, and consulting other specialists to deal with different health issues, among others.

KEY takeaway

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

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.

Instead, it is a gradual process of personal discovery and evaluation, accepting yourself and being in the company of supportive systems that will make it easier.

 

What Aspects Of My Current Lifestyle, Do I Need To Say Goodbye To, To Become Sober?

Excellent question.

Others have almost all discovered that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was trapped in a cycle of addiction, carrying out the same coping mechanism in order to feel a little brief satisfaction, but with great long-term repercussions.


This does not mean that we must smile and suffer an enormous amount of mental discomfort to alleviate the urge to drink or misuse medications, but should strive to consider the true reason we engage in these actions and what we are seeking to accomplish by doing so.

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 Arden Addiction Treatment, More Trying Than Others?

#1

Initial Detox

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

Releasing Negative Social Influences

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.

Some people entering the programme may be too attached to support systems such as loved ones and it is recommended to discuss this with the clinical specialists so as to agree on appropriate visit policies for the sake of the client.

 

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

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • Reverting to old patterns after treatment, leading to higher chances of relapsing.
  • Chronic lack of family or external support channels combined with recurrent stressor or trigger situations that were not prepared for, or were not anticipated.
  • A bad initial experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Over-reliance on non-expert sources of assistance.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

 

 

How Do I Predict If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

This doesn’t have a precise answer as it depends on the devotion that the client puts in the process, particularly in therapy.

Broadly speaking, if you are willing to accept help, willing to follow directions, accept that your life is your responsibility, and are prepared to seek out the required resource and support to help you recover, your chances of lasting success can increase.

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering Down On My Own?

When you choose private rehab services, you will be in an expertly supervised setting that will make the detox process much simpler, including monitoring your withdrawal, progress, and symptoms.

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

Health issues are likely without clinical monitoring of signs, such as respiratory conditions, increases in blood pressure, risk of epilepsy, liver abnormalities, etc.

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. This is a must.

 

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

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 is not to say that you have to carry all the effort personally, but that it is vital to establish your weak points in recovery, and request help where needed, along the way.

While some facilities provide an extended stay in the event of a relapse, it differs from provider to provider so it pays to make sure.

 

 

What Do I Ask, To Make Sure The Clinic I'm Speaking To Near Arden, Glasgow, Is A Good Match?

#1

What is your experience level in detoxing someone with my alcohol/drug intake and history?

#2

For how long do I need to be treated?

#3

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

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#7

What changes have you made to your programme, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?

#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?

In most cases, you will have an over-the-phone evaluation and most probably pay a deposit to get a reservation at the clinic. 

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

I/We Need Help Urgently, What Should I/We Do?

KEY TAKEAWAY

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. This is a must.

Keep in mind that rehab clinics are not a substitute for hospitals - they do not have the equipment and experts to handle issues like liver complications and the probability of seizures.

 

Nevertheless, if you have non-emergency need for detox and/or rehab, most standard rehab clinics can admit in 24-48 hours.
