How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

Rehab usually means the therapeutic treatment that addresses the bottled up psychological components of addiction, and takes place after the primary physical detox period.

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab is NOT advisable for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • 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.

How Long Should A Stay In Alcohol/Drug Rehab Treatment Last?

This is dependent on your individual needs.

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

  • 7-10 days - Seven to ten days standard detox where addicts are treated for alcohol or drug addiction, normally without therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • 28+ days - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Once the person is finally in the rehab clinic, gaining the necessary insights, and visualising their ability to cope with stimuli and stressful situations without the coping mechanism of alcohol or narcotics, only then will it be easier to determine how long treatment should last.

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.

 

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

 

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.

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

 

Physical Detox

With the help of the consultant psychiatrist or professional at the detox centre, make sure that you’re involved in selecting the most suitable detox regimen. 

Be open and honest with staff, re previous usage, patterns of use, and recency of use.

The info you provide at this stage can determine your prescribed detox regimen and ultimately a comfortable stay at the Rehab Barrowfield rehab centre.

Therapy Time

Focus on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling you receive since they can help you make tremendous headway into addictive patterns.

 

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. 

 

Where do you feel most helpless in your recovery process, and need enhanced support levels to make it through? Are there any triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

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

The majority of people seeking a rehab programme need guarantees about extended success rates, and it can be difficult for clinics to track all previous clients, exhaustively.

 

It goes without saying that you are personally responsible for the success of your rehab process.

Rehab is a short-lived primary treatment, conducted in a specialised, secure setting, to help you navigate to the subsequent stage of your 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

Still, it doesn’t hurt to rethink your perspective on this question.

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.

Being in recovery doesn’t mean that you follow some simple rules and voila!... you beat addiction.

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

 

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Good 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.


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 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 Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Barrowfield, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Early 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

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

People who are used to having family near them may briefly wrestle with their absence.

 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.

 

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Absent support systems from family and friends together with trigger situations and stressors, which become a recipe for disaster.
  • A bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • 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 doesn’t have a precise answer as it depends on the devotion that the client puts in the process, particularly in therapy.

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.

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.

With no professional input and monitoring of symptoms, the likelihood of health issues like cardiovascular and liver complications, blood pressure issues, seizures, and many more, increases significantly.

 

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

 

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

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

This is highly unlikely since according to most clinics, the recovery process is largely in the hands 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.

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.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

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.

Still, for any non-emergency detox/rehab services, most clinics can get you a place in a couple of days.
