Ready? Let's get started:

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

Detox and rehab in addiction care are usually provided as a 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 included
  • Live in the clinic full-time

  • Professional detox
  • All treatment under one roof
  • Personalised therapy
  • Long term support

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • 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.

The following treatment options are available near Carntyne 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 - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • More than 28 days - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

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.

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

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

Make clear your expectations of the whole rehab programme. 

Use the learnings you've had from experience of previous detoxes, or even previous rehab treatment, to help inform what you should tackle in treatment, where the focus should be, what triggers need underlying or additional work.

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

Initial 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.

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

Therapy Insights

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.

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. 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Are there any triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

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

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

In the long run, rehab success rates can differ, because the client (him)(her)self is responsible for their own long-term recovery process.

It also becomes increasingly difficult for rehab clinics to keep in touch with former clients, over very long time periods, in order to track success or efficiency rates.

The short answer here is that success is down to you - a rehab clinic can provide the best therapy and support in the world - but if you take no action or pay no attention, success will be lacking.

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.

Should I Expect To Change A Lot Of My Daily Routine, After Drug/Alcohol 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 others, their weekly calendar will involve some group therapy and a daily meeting with their sponsor.

For others, it might be several sessions of therapy, attending secondary specialists for other health issues, and family support, amongst others, before a stable footing is found.

KEY takeaway

However, a little change of perspective could be useful 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 isn’t a one-time process that you go through, and end up being sober for the rest of your life.

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 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.

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

#1

Initial 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

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

Individuals with deep family connections or friendships may at first have a hard time coping with the loss of connection.

 In some instances, where the social group consists of those in active addiction, such as dealers and other users, this can be a move in a positive direction.

For others, where loved ones offer genuine support, this may be difficult, and it can be worth discussing with the admissions team, before entering a clinic, what the family/communication/visit policies are, to help plan ahead of time, and minimise this discomfort.

#3

Changing The Mindset

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.

Despite this, with an extended stay in rehab, people are able to cope more easily.

Think of rehab itself as not just a place and time to achieve certain outcomes, but also a time to absorb the attitudes, and mindsets, of recovery, from those around you, on the same journey.

 The longer the timeframe you have to do this, the greater the longer-term rewards are likely to be.

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. 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.
  • 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 bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

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.

When you admit that your life is in your own hands, follow instructions and embrace the resources and support systems necessary to help you in your recovery, odds are, that you will succeed.

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.

Decreasing your alcohol intake on your own can be dangerous; always seek professional help.

Without professional supervision of symptoms, medical emergencies are possible, such as cardiovascular issues, blood pressure changes, risk of seizure, liver complications, etc.

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.

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

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

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.

Some clinics offer an additional stay if relapse occurs, but again, this varies, check with the prospective provider you're speaking with.

Are There Specific Questions I Should Ask, To Find The Right Addiction Rehab That Meets My Needs, Near Carntyne, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

For my needs, what treatment length do you suggest?

#3

Can I admit for detox-only, then increase my stay once admitted?

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#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

Please send me the latest Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

What is your refund policy?

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. 

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

Do Rehab Clinics Deal With Needs For Urgent Help Relating To Alcohol Or Drugs?

Important: If there is a severe emergency, it is recommended that you contact local trained medical personnel immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

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.

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