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

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

If you've struggled to find the right questions to ask, meet our comprehensive guide to finding drug or alcohol addiction help in Blackhill, Glasgow, below.

Let's begin:

How Does Rehab For Alcohol/Drug Misuse Differ From A Detox-Only Approach?

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

Rehab can be described as the therapeutic component of residential treatment and it takes care of the subconscious psychological aspects of addiction.

Detox .v. Rehab In Blackhill, Glasgow

Detox
  • Includes supervised detox
  • Fully residential
  • No therapeutic help
  • No long-term support
Rehab
  • Includes supervised detox
  • Live in the clinic full-time
  • Individual care planning & therapy input
  • Ongoing help

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • Individuals who are hesitant to make sense of their drug/alcohol addiction and stick to the subsequent recommendations provided.
  • Individuals content to live in denial about their mental health and continued irresponsible behaviour.

Is A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab Always The Same Length?

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Blackhill 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.
  • More than 28 days - Standard stay that consist of increased therapy sessions and coordinating for aftercare help.

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.

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 Blackhill?

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Make clear your expectations of the whole rehab programme. 

Use the learnings you've had from experience of previous detoxes, or even previous rehab treatment, to help inform what you should tackle in treatment, where the focus should be, what triggers need underlying or additional work.

Try to pick a Blackhill clinic which provides a personally assigned case manager, who works with you personally, throughout the addiction rehabilitation programme.

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

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. 

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 Blackhill 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

You should not commit to an aftercare plan without first reflecting on all the wins you have garnered from all the sessions you have been involved in while in rehab. 

In your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

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

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. 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, how a person fares in rehab is directly proportional to the effort they put in to the 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.

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

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.

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

In this case, a different perspective on the original question could help your recovery journey more.

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*.

It is wrong to assume that recovery involves some specific secret steps that you go through to achieve a lifetime of sobriety.

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

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

Great 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 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.

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.

Are There Elements Of Blackhill Addiction Treatment, More Trying Than Others?

#1

Reactions 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.

In this phase, inform the specialists about your symptoms to ensure that the detox is suitably safe for you.

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

Individuals with deep family connections or friendships may at first have a hard time coping with the loss of connection.

 In some cases, these are connections with parties detrimental to the recovery process such as other alcohol users or substance dealers. Here the severing of these ties is for the better.

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

To make the psychological and emotional evolution from an addicted individual with dependence and co-dependence, to a recovery mindset, is not a walk in the park.

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.

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

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

How Can I Tell If Rehab Will Work For Me, And My History With Drugs Or Alcohol Addiction?

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 Alcoholics Anonymous, And Rehab, Different?

What's The Difference Between Going To Rehab And Tapering Down On My Own?

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.

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.

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

What Happens If I/My Loved One Relapses After Leaving Treatment - Do We Get A Refund?

Check with the individual rehab clinic you've engaged with, *before* entering treatment, about their refund policy.

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

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

#1

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

#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

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#8

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

#9

Is there any refund policy I should be aware of?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

After first conducting a telephone questionnaire, most facilities would request you to pay a deposit to reserve a room at the clinic. 

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.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehabilitation can never take the place of professional emergency care. A rehab clinic can deal with routine requirements for detox, and therapeutic intervention thereafter.

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

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.
