Trying to find the right drug/alcohol treatment near Barlanark, Glasgow can begin to feel like your going round in circles.

Maybe we can be your guide.

In the answers below, we showcase the insights needed to find the right help, at the right cost, near Barlanark, Glasgow.

Let's get started.

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

You can get both rehab and detox services for addiction, in a single package.

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.

Detox-Only Treatment
  • Professional detox
  • Fully residential
  • Not individualised
  • No long-term support
Rehab Programme

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • People living with addictive behaviour who are not bothered by their life of denial, with no problem about letting other people put in all the work.

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.

The following treatment options are available near Barlanark and the greater Glasgow area:

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

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.

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

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

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Have realistic expectations regarding your stay in alcohol/drug rehab. 

From past detox and rehab experiences, try to come up with a deliberate approach in your care plan, that overcomes previous setbacks and deals with emotional triggers.

Choose an addiction rehabilitation programme near Barlanark that will select and assign one support worker to help you navigate through your stay

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

Be proactive in talking with the consultant psychiatrist or expert after entering rehab and come to an agreement regarding the detox regimen you'll follow. 

It is in your best interest to speak the truth about patterns of drug and alcohol intake, former periods of use, and the most recent 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 Barlanark treatment centre.

Therapy Time

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

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

It is important to evaluate everything you’ve learned from support groups, keywork discussions, and one-on-one sessions. 

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 triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

Additional therapy sessions? Help from sponsors or recovery stalwarts that you have known for a long time?

Are there suitable safety measures you could implement, that fit the day-to-day situations you face in life?

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

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

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.

Even after receiving superior therapy services from a private rehab, whether or not you will be successful all boils down to your effort.

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.

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

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.

Other client’s weekly diaries will include contact with a sponsor, group therapy, plus several weekly mutual aid discussions.

Some clients will find it hard to be stable unless they complete group therapy several times per week, community meetings, consulting experts for unrelated health issues, plus getting lots of family support.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Nevertheless, it is essential to change your mindset.

From our personal experience, we have learned that people who succeed in long-term recovery ranging from 20 to 30 years don’t dwell much on the time it takes to recover but have come to terms with the idea that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

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 Do I Have To Give Up, To Become Sober?

Good question.

For others who have experienced the same scenario, in most cases, they have come to terms with letting go of a part of them that was locked up in a cycle of addiction.


This does not mean we have to grin and bear a tremendous amount of emotional stress in order to release the need to drink or misuse substances, but instead seek to understand, in a therapeutic environment, the real reasons we indulge in these behaviours and what we're trying to gain by doing so.

By getting rid of old mindsets and embracing new ones, an accomplished cognitive behavioural therapist can assist you to learn what is needed to get eliminate patterns that fuel your habits but not through brute force.

What Parts Of Rehab Treatment Near Barlanark Should I Expect To Be The Most Trying?

#1

Reactions To Detox

During the initial 4 to 6 days, detox can feel like an uphill task because the mind and body are trying to adapt to the diminished supply of the substance.

During this time, make sure that the specialist handling your case knows about any kind of symptoms you may be experiencing to ensure an appropriate and painless detox process.

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

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.

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

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.

 By doing this for an extended period of time, you will discover that it will add more value to the long-term recovery process.

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

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Taking up a programme of out-patient treatment, while knowing very well that you will face external stressors in your daily life that will impede your progress.
  • Reverting to old patterns after treatment, leading to higher chances of relapsing.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • Maybe someone had a miserable time during their first rehab, mutual aid, or treatment stint, and this experience led them to believe that rehab/treatment is not worth it.
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • By being reluctant to get rid of habits that trigger old drug or alcohol habits.

How Can I Tell In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Is Likely To Help Someone With My Pattern Of 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.

If you're willing to stick to instructions, find support systems and accept responsibility for your recovery, you will have an easier journey.

Are Rehab And Alcoholics Anonymous Different, Really?

Residential Rehab Treatment v Alcoholics Anonymous Barlanark
Rehab
  • Rehab essentially involves services like relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic intervention under one roof, by one provider in a clinically regulated environment.
Alcoholics Anonymous
  • AA is a non-clinical, mutual aid setting, where individuals come together in community-based meetings, to share their collective journeys, in the hope of helping others, and themselves.

Can't I Just Taper Down On My Own? Why Do I Need Alcohol Or Drug Rehab?

Private rehabilitation provides a well-managed and expertly supervised process for detox and safe withdrawal. In addition, there is professional monitoring of the recovery journey and symptoms at every step.

Tapering down alcohol intake independently, without professional assistance, can be extremely dangerous and is expressly *not* recommended.

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

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

What Happens If I/My Loved One Relapses After Leaving Treatment - Do We Get A Refund?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

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.

There are clinics that have an extra stay as part of their services in the event the client relapses.

What 9 Questions Should I Ask Any Alcohol/Drug Rehab Clinic I'm Considering Near Barlanark, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

Will I be allowed to admit for a short duration of treatment and increase it later, once settled?

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

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

#7

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

#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 refund policy?

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

After first conducting a telephone questionnaire, most facilities would request you to pay a deposit to reserve a room at the clinic. 

After the provider has gotten consent for admission from the medical team, they can proceed to admit you to the facility; a process that usually takes 1-2 days.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

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. A rehab clinic can deal with routine requirements for detox, and therapeutic intervention thereafter.

Rehab facilities cannot take the place of hospitals since they lack the advanced equipment and trained staff to deal with any arising issues like liver decomposition 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.
