Asking the right questions to find alcohol or drug help near Battlefield, Glasgow can be a minefield.

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

Get ready, and take notes from our top answers below, to finding the right addiction treatment near Battlefield, Glasgow.

Let's get started.

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

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

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 the best choice for those listed below:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • 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.

What's The Ideal Treatment Length For A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab?

The time you will spend in a rehab centre is based on your individual case.

Here’s an idea of typical 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 inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • Over 28 days - Typical stay, incorporating considerable therapy and planning for the future’s aftercare services.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It is only when the person is actually in the rehab clinic that we can know how long he’ll stay since this is the time they can be observed in different scenarios with no drugs and alcohol involved.

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

 

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

 

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.

It's best to select a Battlefield treatment service that will assign a case manager, to ease your way throughout the programme.

Physical Detox

With the consultant psychiatrist or specialist at the rehab centre at your side, take part in discussing the most ideal detoxification path for your issue. 

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

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

 

Therapy Insights

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 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?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. By staying in a secure environment, people are more inclined to finish the detox programme.

In the long run, rehab success rates can differ, because the client (him)(her)self is responsible for their own long-term recovery 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-lived primary treatment, conducted in a specialised, secure setting, to help you navigate to the subsequent stage of your recovery journey.

 

Should I Expect To Change A Lot Of My Daily Routine, 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 others, their weekly calendar will involve some group therapy and a daily meeting with their sponsor.

 

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

However, a little change of perspective could be useful here.

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*.

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?

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 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 Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Battlefield Struggle With?

#1

Detox Symptoms

Detox can be challenging in the first four to six days as the mental and physical systems are trying to come to terms with limited substance intake.

This is when you should never be quiet about any symptoms since it will relevant to help staff facilitate a seamless and safe detox process.

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

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

 At times, we find that these connections are with drug dealers and addicts and when separation happens, it is a step in the right direction.

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.

 

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

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • Returning to long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • 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. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

 

 

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

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.

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

How Are AA And Rehab Different?

Rehab .v. AA In Battlefield
Residential Rehab
  • Rehab is a clinically supervised setting, providing for primary care needs of detox, therapeutic intervention, and relapse prevention planning, in a residential environment, all under one roof, from one provider.
AA Meetings
  • 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.

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering Down On My Own?

When you choose private rehab services, you will be in an expertly supervised setting that will make the detox process much simpler, including monitoring your withdrawal, progress, and symptoms.

 

Decreasing your alcohol intake on your own can be dangerous; always seek professional help.

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.

 

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

 

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

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.

 

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.

 

What Are 9 Essential Questions To Ask A Potential Treatment Provider Near Battlefield, 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

Is it possible to enrol for a brief stay, then extend it after I am in the programme?

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

Does the clinic let the next of kin attend for visits? 

#7

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

#8

Please send me the latest Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

Does you clinic have a policy on issuing refunds?

 

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. This is a must.

Still, rehab clinics are not hospitals and they are usually not equipped to deal with complicated health issues such as liver problems and seizures.

 

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