If you're looking for alcohol or drug addiction help near Barmulloch, Glasgow - you'll already know how confusing the options can be.

But, help *is* available, if you know what to ask.

Below, we've laid out the key need-to-knows, to narrow down the search and find drug or alcohol treatment which meets your needs for cost, location, and getting help fast, in Barmulloch, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

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

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 is NOT advisable for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • 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 Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

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

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

  • 7-10 days - Ranging from one week to a week and a half, a general detox programme that caters for alcohol or drug addicts but there is usually no therapy included.
  • 14-28 days - Typical inpatient programme for initial detox and a few therapeutic sessions.
  • More than 28 days - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Unless the addict starts treatment, it will be challenging to ascertain the exact duration of treatment needed. This is because being in a rehab clinic is the best time to monitor progress without the presence of drugs or alcohol.

People who feel there have been positive results can leave the treatment centre after 28 days but if there is still some way to go, they can extend their stay.

 

Is There Anything Specific I Should Focus On, During Drug/Alcohol Rehab Barmulloch, To Get Best Possible Results?

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

Be forthright and honest in what you expect from the rehab programme. 

 

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

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

 

Detox

Don't shy away from talking honestly with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist  assigned to you, regarding the detox regimen with the best chance of working. 

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

Giving false answers, due to pride, is not a good idea at this stage, since your answers to questions will help determine the specific detox you receive, and hence your comfort and safety, in the Rehab Barmulloch clinic.

 

Therapy Time

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 Long Term Sobriety

Reflect first on the experiences you have learned from support groups, from mutual aid work, from keywork workshops, from one-to-one work, before committing something to paper for future supports. 

 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

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

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

People in rehab are accountable for their long term recovery, and by extension, their success.

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.

 

You can get all the support and five-star therapy services in the world but it is all in vain if you do not play your part and adhere to the learning.

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 Will My Weekly Routine Change, After Drug/Alcohol 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.

For some, their weekly timetable will be maintained by a daily check-in with their sponsor and a few mutual aid meetings per week.

 

Others will only reach a stable point after several weekly therapy sessions, consulting different specialists for different health problems, support from loved ones and mutual aid sessions or calls.

KEY takeaway

Nevertheless, it is essential to change your mindset.

Clients who have welcomed the idea that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*, progress far better than those who view it as a burden that takes from their lives.

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

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.

By working with a cognitive behavioural therapist, you can release old patterns and old ways of doing things, and learn fresh methods instead.

What Are The Top 3 Most Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Barmulloch?

#1

Reactions To 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.

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

Redrawing Social Boundaries

There are some people with firm connections with loved ones and when they are severed, they end up having a tough time.

 In some instances, where the social group consists of those in active addiction, such as dealers and other users, this can be a move in a positive direction.

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.

 

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

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Not seeking support or assistance when experiencing a trigger situation.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • 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.
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • Unwillingness to let go of, or break contact with, a previous known trigger for addictive tendencies or behaviour.

 

 

Is Rehab Likely To Work For Someone Like Me, With My History Of Usage, And Intake Pattern?

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

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 Are AA And Rehab Different?

Rehab .v. Alcoholics Anonymous Barmulloch
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 & Mutual Aid 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.

Others Have Suggested I Taper Down On My Own, And Don't Need Help - Is That Correct?

By admitting to rehab, you will be embracing professionally supervised surroundings for detox and safe withdrawal. Here, you will also get constant feedback on your progress and symptoms.

Weaning off alcohol alone, without expert support, can be life-threatening and is specifically not recommended.

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.

 

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

 

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

Consult with the particular rehab you're considering, regarding their refund policy before entering their programme.

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

But this is not an indication that everything is up to you, without help, but that you must pinpoint the areas that you are vulnerable in, and seek support.

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.

 

Are There Specific Questions I Should Ask, To Find The Right Addiction Rehab That Meets My Needs, Near Barmulloch, 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

Please elaborate on options for relapse prevention?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

With COVID-19 ravaging the world, have you changed any part of your services?

#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?

 

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

Following an initial telephone review, you would be required to book a room at the clinic by paying a deposit. 

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.

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. This is a must.

However, a rehab clinic is not a hospital, and does not have the appropriate medical equipment or staffing to deal with issues such as advanced liver decomposition, high risk of seizure, or other complications.

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.
