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 Bridgeton, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

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

Rehabilitation refers to the therapeutic part of treatment that work on the hidden psychological aspects of addictive habits, and comes after the initial phase of physical detox.

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.
  • 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 ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

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

  • 7-10 days - A week to ten days - regular detox - alcohol or drug treatment stay, usually minus therapy
  • 14-28 days - Typical inpatient programme for initial detox and a few therapeutic sessions.
  • 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.

After twenty eight days have passed, if a person is in a better state, they can leave the treatment centre. Still, others can stay on if the rehab is not yet complete.

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

Care Plan

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

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

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

Physical Detox

With the help of the consultant psychiatrist or professional at the detox centre, make sure that you’re involved in selecting the most suitable detox regimen. 

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

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

Therapeutic Help

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.

Aftercare Planning

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 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?

What are the ways in which you can prepare for these more fragile moments, and work towards their permanent resolution? What could make this progress a reality? 

Additional therapy sessions? Help from sponsors or recovery stalwarts that you have known for a long time?

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.

Ultimately, the success of a rehab stay differs from individual to individual because it depends on the mindset of the addict.

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.

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-lived primary treatment, conducted in a specialised, secure setting, to help you navigate to the subsequent stage of your recovery journey.

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

This is relative, depending on variables such as how long your recovery journey has been, support structures around you, everyday triggers that you have to contend with, plus the work still to be done regarding the therapeutic gains realised in treatment.

As part of their weekly timetable, some clients will have to have an everyday check-in with designated sponsors, group therapy, and several mutual aid sessions or calls 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*.

Recovery isn’t a one-time process that you go through, and end up being sober for the rest of your life.

Rather, recovery is a journey of self-assessment, accepting your weaknesses and strengths, plus incorporating support systems that will work for you.

What Do I Have To Give Up, To Become Sober?

Good 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 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.

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 Parts Of Rehab Treatment Near Bridgeton Should I Expect To Be The Most Trying?

#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.

This is a time to be vocal about your symptoms, with the professionals available, in order to maintain a detox that is both safe and comfortable.

#2

Redrawing Social Boundaries

There are some people with firm connections with loved ones and when they are severed, they end up having a tough time.

 This may be a step in a better direction in some situations, where the client's social community comprises those involved in active addiction, such as dealers and others in active addiction.

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

Transitioning both emotionally and psychologically from the addictive mindset which involves chaos, dependence and co-dependence can prove difficult.

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.

 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?

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • During recovery, returning to an old habit, coping mechanism, or way of life, raising the risk of a situation leading to relapse.
  • Chronic lack of family or external support channels combined with recurrent stressor or trigger situations that were not prepared for, or were not anticipated.
  • A poor first experience in treatment/rehab/mutual aid with one particular source, which later leads to a (mistaken) long term belief that "treatment/rehab doesn't work."
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • 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 can't be predicted easily since even the worst addictive habits can be broken by being steadfast in following the process, specifically the therapy regimen.

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?

Rehab .v. AA In Bridgeton
Residential Rehab
  • Rehab can be thought of as a clinically supervised treatment in residential surroundings that completes the primary care requirements of therapeutic intervention, detox, and prevention of relapse by one provider, under one roof.
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?

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.

Tapering off alcohol minus any professional aid can harm you and is not advisable.

Health issues are likely without clinical monitoring of signs, such as respiratory conditions, increases in blood pressure, risk of epilepsy, liver abnormalities, etc.

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

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

Make sure that you understand where the rehab clinic stands regarding refunds.

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

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.

There are clinics that have an extra stay as part of their services in the event the client relapses.

What Should I Ask, When Vetting Treatment Clinics Near Bridgeton, 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 admit for a shorter duration initially, then extend my stay once in the clinic?

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#7

Due to COVID-19, are there any modifications to your policies or care?

#8

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

#9

What is your refund policy?

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

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. 

From here, the admissions team will request medical approval for your admission from their staff, and you would normally admit to treatment 24-48 hrs later.

I/We Need Help Urgently, What Should I/We Do?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

You can never substitute rehab for competent medical care. A rehab clinic can deal with routine requirements for detox, and therapeutic intervention thereafter.

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.

Nevertheless, if you have non-emergency need for detox and/or rehab, most standard rehab clinics can admit in 24-48 hours.
