Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

It is possible to receive treatment for alcohol  and detox services  for addiction, all at once.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab is NOT 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.
  • Individuals addicted to drugs or alcohol who are not yet ready to stop using.

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

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Look at the treatment options near Braidfauld and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Typical inpatient programme for initial detox and a few therapeutic sessions.
  • More than 28 days - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Unless the addict starts treatment, it will be challenging to ascertain the exact duration of treatment needed. This is because being in a rehab clinic is the best time to monitor progress without the presence of drugs or alcohol.

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.

What Should I Make A Point Of Doing, During Rehab Braidfauld?

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Make clear your expectations of the whole 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.

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

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

After admission, take an active part in the conversation with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist before committing to the detox procedure that you will undergo. 

It is vital to be transparent to the staff about how often you use, alcohol intake, and the last time you used/drank.

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 Braidfauld clinic.

Therapy Time

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.

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? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

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

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 90%+. Those who begin detox in a supervised treatment centre are highly likely to finish.

Success rates of rehab, in the long term, will vary, since the individual themselves is responsible for their long-term recovery.

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.

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.

How Much Will My Weekly Routine Change, 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.

Other will only make it after multiple mutual aid sessions, several group therapy sessions, a strong family support network, and consulting other specialists to deal with different health issues, among others.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

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.

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

Instead, it is a gradual process of personal discovery and evaluation, accepting yourself and being in the company of supportive systems that will make it easier.

What Aspects Of My Current Lifestyle, Do I Need To Say Goodbye To, To Become Sober?

Great question.

Others before you have almost always found that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was locked in a pattern of addiction, acting out the same coping mechanism to the point of exhaustion.


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.

A skilled mental health therapist can help you gain the insight needed to release a pattern, not through sheer force, but by understanding, and releasing an old way of achieving something and tackling the issue in a new way, for the first time.

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

#1

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.

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.

 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.

But in cases where the connections, for instance, loved ones provide real support, it is advisable to sit down with the admissions crew and plan for supervised visits to make the person’s experience less traumatising.

#3

Emotional Transformation

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.

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.

 The longer you spend in treatment, the more you will gain in your recovery journey.

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

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • Taking up a programme of out-patient treatment, while knowing very well that you will face external stressors in your daily life that will impede your progress.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • A bad initial experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

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.

I Don't Think I Need Rehab, I Could Taper Down On My Own.

By admitting to rehab, you will be embracing professionally supervised surroundings for detox and safe withdrawal. Here, you will also get constant feedback on your progress and symptoms.

Weaning off alcohol alone, without expert support, can be life-threatening and is specifically 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, *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?

To be on the safe side, check with the clinic re their refund policy before committing.

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

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 Should I Ask, When Vetting Treatment Clinics Near Braidfauld, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

For my needs, what treatment length do you suggest?

#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

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

Is it possible to have close relatives visit me in the clinic? 

#7

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

#8

Can I get copies of the most up-to-date Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports, plus ratings?

#9

Is there any refund policy I should be aware of?

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

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. 

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: 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. Rehab facilities can handle basic detox requirements plus therapeutic care afterwards.

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

But if you are facing non-emergency detox requirements, you can get admission in one to two days.
