If you're looking for alcohol or drug addiction help near Braidfauld, Glasgow - you'll already know how confusing the options can be.

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

In the answers below, we showcase the insights needed to find the right help, at the right cost, near Braidfauld, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

Rehab .v. Detox - How Do They Differ?

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

Rehab refers to the therapeutic elements of a stay in treatment, that tackle the underlying psychological components of addiction, and usually occurs after the initial physical detox stage.

Detox .v. Rehab In Braidfauld, Glasgow

Detox-Only
  • Professional detox
  • Fully residential
  • Not individualised
  • No ongoing help
Rehab
  • Detox included
  • Fully residential
  • Personalised therapy
  • Long term support

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • Individuals addicted to drugs or alcohol who are not yet ready to stop using.

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

The appropriate duration in  a treatment programme depends on your personal circumstances and history of addiction.

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Braidfauld and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular simple stay for preliminary detoxification and several therapy sessions.
  • Over 28 days - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

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.

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

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

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.

Do your best to find an addiction treatment programme near Braidfauld which has a specialist assigned to you personally, as long as you are there.

Detox

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 in your best interest to speak the truth about patterns of drug and alcohol intake, former periods of use, and the most recent use.

By presenting the situation as it is, the specialists will be able to place you on an ideal detox plan and it’ll ensure that you have an easier time at the Rehab Braidfauld treatment centre.

Therapy Time

It is true that people have particular addictive trends that rule over their lives. This is why it is advisable to concentrate on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling sessions to get some psychological wins.

Relapse Prevention

Reflect first on the experiences you have learned from support groups, from mutual aid work, from keywork workshops, from one-to-one work, before committing something to paper for future supports. 

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? 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?

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 90%+. By staying in a secure environment, people are more inclined to finish the detox programme.

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

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 short term, primary care intervention in a specialist environment; to assist you to the next stage of your long term recovery journey.

Would Recovery Activities Take A Lot Of Time Out Of My Life, In An Average Week, After Rehab?

This is dependent on a number of factors such as the point you are at in your journey of recovery, your existing supports, daily triggers you have to deal with, plus the remaining benefits from the therapeutic work during treatment.

For some, their weekly timetable will be maintained by a daily check-in with their sponsor and a few mutual aid meetings per week.

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

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*.

Being in recovery is a gradual and systematic process as opposed to a few magic steps that provide instant results.

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?

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 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 getting rid of old mindsets and embracing new ones, an accomplished cognitive behavioural therapist can assist you to learn what is needed to get eliminate patterns that fuel your habits but not through brute force.

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

#1

Reactions To 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.

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

Redrawing Social Boundaries

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

 But when these groups with strong ties to the client include active users and dealers, it is in the best interest of the client to sever them.

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 From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

Making the emotional/psychological transition from the mindset of addiction (dependence, co-dependence, lack of responsibility, chaotic lifestyle) to the mindset of recovery, can be challenging.

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

While in rehab, try to see it as a time to absorb the approach, and mental thinking style, of other people on the same path to recovery.

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

What Are The Reasons Some People Fail To Achieve Lasting Recovery From Drug/Alcohol Addiction?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • During recovery, returning to an old habit, coping mechanism, or way of life, raising the risk of a situation leading to relapse.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A bad initial experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. 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.

Is Rehab Likely To Work For Someone Like Me, With My History Of Usage, And Intake Pattern?

This doesn’t have a precise answer as it depends on the devotion that the client puts in the process, particularly in therapy.

By accepting to be helped, following the directives given, acknowledging that you’re responsible for your own life and seeking the needful resources and support, you will significantly enhance the chances of recovering.

I Don't Think I Need Rehab, I Could Taper 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.

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. This is mandatory.

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

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

Essentially, very few clinics can offer refund after you relapse because long-term recovery is the responsibility of the client.

This does not mean you have to do all the work; but it does mean you need to clearly identify where you need help or support, for weak areas in your recovery, and actively ask for that help or support until you receive it.

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

#1

Are you experienced in dealing with clients in the same situation as mine, regarding detox and intake levels?

#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?

#8

If I Need Alcohol Or Drug Help Urgently, Who Do I Contact?

Important: When a medical emergency occurs, you are advised to seek local medical assistance urgently.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

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.

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.
