Maybe we can help you navigate.

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 Battlefield, Glasgow.

Let's go.

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 .v. Rehab Treatment In Battlefield, Glasgow

Detox-Only
  • Professional detox
  • Residential treatment
  • Not individualised
  • No post-detox support
Rehab
  • Detox included
  • Residential care
  • Personalised therapeutic input
  • Ongoing help

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • Individuals who are hesitant to make sense of their drug/alcohol addiction and stick to the subsequent recommendations provided.
  • Drug or alcohol addicted individuals who aren't yet ready to relinquish their denial and irresponsibility, whilst still depending on others to make all the effort.

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

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Battlefield 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 - Regular simple stay for preliminary detoxification and several therapy sessions.
  • Over 28 days - Typical stay, incorporating considerable therapy and planning for the future’s aftercare services.

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.

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

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

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

By reflecting on previous detox and rehab centres, you can easily identify what areas to concentrate on during treatment, and the triggers that still have power over you and need dealing with.

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

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

Take an active role in discussion with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist, following your admission to rehab, when agreeing the detox protocol you'll undergo. 

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

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 Insights

Keeping in mind that addiction affects life in a personal way through recognised patterns, it is critical to give cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling all your attention to help overcome the underlying psychological issues.

Relapse Prevention

Taking a moment and assessing what kind of gains you have made from the therapy sessions, one-on-one interactions, and support groups, is highly recommended before committing to specifics in your aftercare plan. 

In what areas of your recovery process are you particularly vulnerable, and need bolstering, to tolerate the ups and downs of day to day life? 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?

More than 90% of people in detox successfully complete that part of the programme. By staying in a secure environment, people are more inclined to finish the detox programme.

Ultimately, the success of a rehab stay differs from individual to individual because it depends on the mindset of the addict.

It also becomes increasingly difficult for rehab clinics to keep in touch with former clients, over very long time periods, in order to track success or efficiency rates.

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

Should I Expect To Change A Lot Of My Daily Routine, After Drug/Alcohol Rehab?

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.

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

For others, it might be several sessions of therapy, attending secondary specialists for other health issues, and family support, amongst others, before a stable footing is found.

KEY takeaway

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

In our experience, those who do well in long term recovery, i.e. 20-30+ years, are not focused upon how much time recovery takes from their lives, but have instead accepted that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

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

Rather, recovery is a journey of self-assessment, accepting your weaknesses and strengths, plus incorporating support systems that will work for you.

What Do I Have To Give Up, To Become Sober?

Excellent question.

Others have discovered they had to give up a part of themselves that had become enmeshed in an addictive pattern.


This does not mean that we need to smile and suffer an immense amount of mental discomfort to move beyond the need to drink or consume drugs, but instead, we should strive to explore the true motives behind these habits.

An expert cognitive behavioural therapist will assist you to get the understanding required to eliminate patterns, not forcefully, but via doing away with old ways of handling the situation and learning new ways.

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

#1

Adjusting To Detox

The initial 48-72 hours of detox can be the most trying, physically and emotionally, as the body and mind adjust to reduced substance intake, and detox begins.

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.

 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.

For some individuals who are used to support from family and loved ones, it can be stressful leaving them and getting into the clinic. This is why there should be a discussion with the clinic regarding visits and communication with family.

#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.

Nevertheless, the longer one stays in rehab, the easier it becomes.

Rehab shouldn’t be thought of as just a centre to handle some emotional issues but also as an experience where you can learn from other people facing the same addictions as you.

 If you keep absorbing positive attitudes over time, it will be more profitable for your long-term recovery.

Are There Any Common Patterns In Those Who Aren't Successful In Long Term Addiction Recovery?

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. 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.
  • Absent support systems from family and friends together with trigger situations and stressors, which become a recipe for disaster.
  • A bad initial experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • Unwillingness to let go of, or break contact with, a previous known trigger for addictive tendencies or behaviour.

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

There is no definite answer for this since it takes effort and commitment to break even the toughest addictions, especially where therapy is concerned.

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

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

In private rehab, there is professional feedback on the whole detox programme, safe withdrawal, supervision of progress, all done in regulated surroundings.

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

Without professional supervision of symptoms, medical emergencies are possible, such as cardiovascular issues, blood pressure changes, risk of seizure, liver complications, etc.

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

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

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

To be realistic, not many clinics will refund you following a relapse, given that you are personally responsible for your own recovery.

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.

Some rehab facilities include an extension, should a client relapse, but to be on the safe side, it is better to confirm.

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

#1

What is your track record in dealing with cases similar to mine?

#2

How long should I stay in the clinic?

#3

Can I admit for detox-only, then increase my stay once admitted?

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

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

#8

Can you send me a copy of your latest Care Quality Commission or Care Inspectorate inspection reports and ratings?

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

What Happens When I Select A Rehab Clinic To Admit To?

You'll usually complete a telephone assessment, and most providers at this point will request payment of a deposit, in order to hold a room for you, in their facility. 

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.

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

Important: If there is a severe emergency, it is recommended that you contact local trained medical personnel immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

Nevertheless, do not confuse a rehab centre with a hospital as it doesn’t have the equipment or personnel to handle advanced medical issues like liver decomposition, seizures and other problems.

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