Hundreds in Bridgeton, Glasgow struggle to find the right help for alcohol or drug addiction.

Maybe we can help you navigate.

Here are the answers to the critical few FAQs you need to know, to help secure alcohol or drug treatment that meets your needs, near Bridgeton, Glasgow.

How Does Detox And Rehab Treatment Work?

Detox and rehab in addiction care are usually provided as a package.

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

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • 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 Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

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

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Bridgeton 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 - Typical stay, incorporating considerable therapy and planning for the future’s aftercare services.

KEY TAKEAWAY

As long as the individual is not yet in the rehab clinic, it will be hard to estimate the duration of treatment. Why is this? Because it's only during treatment that we can evaluate reactions to triggers minus the presence of drugs and alcohol.

In the event of significant progress in the treatment centre after the 28 days have passed, one can leave the facility, although some people might stay for a bit longer.

Is There Anything Specific I Should Focus On, During Drug/Alcohol Rehab Bridgeton, To Get Best Possible Results?

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Have a honest approach to what you need to achieve out of rehab treatment. 

Use previous work in detox or rehabilitation to understand what areas need your focus, and the triggers that still need a lot of attention.

Life will be much easier if you pick a rehab clinic in Bridgeton that will provide you with a personal case manager to help you cope with the process.

Physical Detox

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. 

Be open and honest with staff, re previous usage, patterns of use, and recency of use.

Lying is not recommended since the treatment you will get is dependent on your answers.

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.

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. 

Where do you feel most helpless in your recovery process, and need enhanced support levels to make it through? 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?

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.

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

In order to measure success metrics, it is now becoming more difficult for recovery centres to stay in contact with former clients over very long periods of time, as most patients are searching for promises regarding very long-term success rates.

You can get all the support and five-star therapy services in the world but it is all in vain if you do not play your part and adhere to the learning.

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

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

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

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.

quotation mark

KEY takeaway

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

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 is not a series of "secret" steps that you undertake a few times, to be rewarded with long term sobriety.

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?

Good 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.

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.

What Are The Top Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Bridgeton Struggle With?

#1

Detox Symptoms

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.

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

#2

Releasing Harmful Social Influences

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

 But when these connections comprise of parties directly involved in drug or alcohol abuse such as sellers and other addicts, cutting links is recommended.

Some people entering the programme may be too attached to support systems such as loved ones and it is recommended to discuss this with the clinical specialists so as to agree on appropriate visit policies for the sake of the client.

#3

Changing The Mindset

The emotional and psychological transformation to an attitude of recovery from one of addictive behaviours such as carelessness, dependence and co-dependence, is not easy, for most people.

But after someone stays a longer period in rehab, it can become less challenging.

Your time in rehab can be beneficial if you try to absorb the mindsets of other people in the clinic with you, and embrace some of their outlook.

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

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

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Not seeking support or assistance when experiencing a trigger situation.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • 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 encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. 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.

Is It Possible To Say In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

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.

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

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.

Reducing alcohol use without professional help is a no-no and should not be done.

If there is no professional management of the symptoms, there are higher chances of arising health issues like heart and liver complications, seizures, blood pressure problems, and others.

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.

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

Consult with the particular rehab you're considering, regarding their refund policy before entering their programme.

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

It's vital to consult your regular medical professional before registering for any kind of alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

Keep in mind that rehab clinics are not a substitute for hospitals - they do not have the equipment and experts to handle issues like liver complications and the probability of seizures.
