Finding safe, professional help for drug or alcohol problems in Barrowfield, Glasgow can be overwhelming. How do you find the right treatment, at the right cost?

Maybe we can help you navigate.

In our guide below, you'll find the right questions to ask an addiction clinic (and the right answers).

Let's get started.

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

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

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 for:

  • Detoxers who routinely fall off the wagon, and have an alcohol/drug pattern they perpetually deny.
  • 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.

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

This is dependent on your individual needs.

Look at the treatment options near Barrowfield 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.
  • More than 28 days - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It might be difficult to measure an ideal treatment duration until the individual is actually in the rehab clinic, gaining the required insights, and visualising their ability to deal with triggers and difficult scenarios without the coping mechanism of alcohol or drugs.

If an individual feels better after 28 days in the treatment centre, they may depart, but many stay beyond this.

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

Care Plan

Be transparent about what you hope to achieve in the rehab centre. 

Think back to past detoxes or rehabilitation centres to learn what areas should be dealt with in treatment and how to deal with triggers to alcohol or drug use.

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

Physical Detox

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. 

Open up about past addictions, alcohol intake, and how recently you used.

Lying is not recommended since the treatment you will get is dependent on your answers.

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 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 what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? What triggers have you discovered that need attention, that you weren't aware of before?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 90%+. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

In the long run, rehab success rates can differ, because the client (him)(her)self is responsible for their own long-term recovery process.

Following pressure from potential clients regarding the long-term outcome of the rehab regimen, many rehab facilities face an uphill task when tracing former clients to gauge whether the programme was successful, in the very long term.

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 specialist environment; to assist you to the next stage of your long term recovery journey.

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

This is relative, depending on variables such as how long your recovery journey has been, support structures around you, everyday triggers that you have to contend with, plus the work still to be done regarding the therapeutic gains realised in treatment.

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

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

From what we have observed, clients with lasting success are those who have acknowledged that it is not about how long recovery work takes, but instead that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

Being in recovery is a gradual and systematic process as opposed to a few magic steps that provide instant results.

Recovery is an ongoing practice of self-insight, self-acceptance, and surrounding oneself with active supports that can help all this happen.

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

Good 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.


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.

Using a cognitive behavioural therapist comes with lots of benefits, for instance, you can get the understanding required to learn new strategies and release old ones.

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

#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 a time to be vocal about your symptoms, with the professionals available, in order to maintain a detox that is both safe and comfortable.

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

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

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

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.

#3

Changing The Mindset

Making the emotional/psychological transition from the mindset of addiction (dependence, co-dependence, lack of responsibility, chaotic lifestyle) to the mindset of recovery, can be challenging.

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

Think of rehab itself as not just a place and time to achieve certain outcomes, but also a time to absorb the attitudes, and mindsets, of recovery, from those around you, on the same journey.

 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?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • Returning to long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • 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 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. 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?

This is difficult to predict since even the most extreme histories of addiction can be turned around, by someone who is determined, and dedicated enough, especially in the therapy elements of rehab.

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 AA?

Rehab .v. AA In Barrowfield
Rehab Treatment
  • Rehab can be thought of as a clinically supervised treatment in residential surroundings that completes the primary care requirements of therapeutic intervention, detox, and prevention of relapse by one provider, under one roof.
Alcoholics Anonymous
  • 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?

Private rehab offers a supervised and professionally controlled environment to complete detox and withdrawal safely, with expert supervision, and feedback on symptoms and progress throughout.

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

If there is no professional management of the symptoms, there are higher chances of arising health issues like heart and liver complications, seizures, blood pressure problems, and others.

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

Will We Get A Refund If I/My Loved One Relapses?

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

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.

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

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

#1

Have you handled many clients with a drug/alcohol intake and case history like my own?

#2

How long should I stay in the clinic?

#3

Can I admit for a shorter duration initially, then extend my stay once in the clinic?

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

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

#8

Could you give me a copy of the current inspection and ratings Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate?

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

After you are through with an initial telephone assessment, the most likely course of action will be to pay an amount to book a room 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.

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

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.

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