In This Guide

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

Maybe we can be your guide.

Below, we've laid out the key need-to-knows, to narrow down the search and find drug or alcohol treatment which meets your needs for cost, location, and getting help fast, in Carntyne, Glasgow.

Let's get started.

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

Usually, in residential addiction treatment, rehab and detox are delivered together.

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.

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Detoxers who routinely fall off the wagon, and have an alcohol/drug pattern they perpetually deny.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • 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 Ideal Treatment Length For A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab?

How long you will be a resident of the rehab centre is influenced by your particular situation.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Carntyne 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 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.

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 Should I Make A Point Of Doing, During Rehab Carntyne?

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

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

By reflecting on previous detox and rehab centres, you can easily identify what areas to concentrate on during treatment, and the triggers that still have power over you and need dealing with.

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

Detox

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. 

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

The info you provide at this stage can determine your prescribed detox regimen and ultimately a comfortable stay at the Rehab Carntyne rehab centre.

Therapeutic 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.

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

It pays to assess your progress from the support group sessions, therapy, keywork workshops and one-on-one discussions. 

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? What triggers have you discovered that need attention, that you weren't aware of before?

How Likely Am I To Achieve Long Term Recovery, After Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

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.

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.

It goes without saying that you are personally responsible for the success of your rehab process.

Rehab is a short-term, primary care intervention in a specialised setting, that can support you in reaching the next steps of your bigger recovery journey.

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

For others, their weekly calendar will involve some group therapy and a daily meeting with their sponsor.

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.

KEY TAKEAWAY

However, a little change of perspective could be useful 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.

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

Recovery is an ongoing practice of self-insight, self-acceptance, and surrounding oneself with active supports that can help all this happen.

What Aspects Of My Current Lifestyle, Do I Need To Say Goodbye To, 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.


It doesn't mean that we must smile and endure immense emotional tension to release the urge to drink or consume drugs, but rather to realise the true underlying causes, in a clinical setting.

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 Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Carntyne Struggle With?

#1

Adjusting To Detox

During the initial 4 to 6 days, detox can feel like an uphill task because the mind and body are trying to adapt to the diminished supply 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

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

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

In circumstances where genuine support systems may be interfered with, there can be a middle point where visitation and communication channels with these connections are established to make the stay at the clinic more bearable.

#3

Moving Beyond The Mindset Of Addiction

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.

It is advisable to view rehab not as a facility that is an end to some means, but as a time for learning from others in recovery with you.

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

What Patterns Tend To Result In Failed Attempts At Recovery, That I Should Avoid?

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • Reverting to old patterns after treatment, leading to higher chances of relapsing.
  • Chronic lack of family or external support channels combined with recurrent stressor or trigger situations that were not prepared for, or were not anticipated.
  • 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 specialist and non-specialist help and support. Over-reliance on non-expert sources of assistance.
  • 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?

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 receive assistance, willing to follow instructions, accept that your life is your own responsibility, and are willing to pursue the services and care needed to help you heal, your chances of success will improve.

Are Rehab And Alcoholics Anonymous Different, Really?

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.

Tapering down alcohol intake independently, without professional assistance, can be extremely dangerous and is expressly *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.

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. This is a must.

Will We Get A Refund If I/My Loved One Relapses?

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

Generally, it's extremely unlikely they will offer any form of refund for a relapse following treatment, since (brutal truth here) *you* are the only one responsible for your long-term recovery.

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.

Other rehab clinics provide an extended stay if there is a relapse but again it is important to inquire first.

What 9 Questions Should I Ask Any Alcohol/Drug Rehab Clinic I'm Considering Near Carntyne, Glasgow?

#1

How experienced are you in detoxing clients with a history like mine?

#2

For how long do I need to be treated?

#3

Will I be allowed to admit for a short duration of treatment and increase it later, once settled?

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

Does the clinic let the next of kin attend for visits? 

#7

With COVID-19 ravaging the world, have you changed any part of your services?

#8

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

#9

What is your refund policy?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

You'll usually complete a telephone assessment, and most providers at this point will request payment of a deposit, in order to hold a room for you, in their facility. 

Next, the admissions team would ask their personnel for medical permission to admit you and be admitted 24 to 48 hours later.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab is not a substitute for qualified emergency 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.

But if your problem is not emergency based, you can be admitted within 24 to 48 hours.
