Trying to find the right drug/alcohol treatment near Carnwadric, Glasgow can begin to feel like your going round in circles.

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

In our guide below, you'll find the right questions to ask an addiction clinic (and the right answers).

Let's begin:

What Are The Differences Between Alcohol/Drug Detox And Rehab?

It is possible to receive rehabilitation and detox services  for addiction, all at once.

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.

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.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • People with no qualms about continuing with their destructive behaviour and not ready to personally pull up their sleeves and help themselves.

How Do I Work Out How Long To Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Addiction 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 Carnwadric 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 - 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.

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 Carnwadric?

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Be forthright and honest in what you expect from the rehab programme. 

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

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

Therapeutic Time

Focus on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling you receive since they can help you make tremendous headway into addictive patterns.

Relapse Prevention

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

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

In what ways could you plan to pre-empt these susceptible areas, and move towards their permanent resolution? What is the action needed to make this happen? 

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

What other additional resources could you come up with, mapped to the context and situations of *your* life, personally?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Work, From A Statistical Perspective?

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

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.

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

After Addiction Rehab, Does Recovery Take Up A Lot Of Time?

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.

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

Some clients will find it hard to be stable unless they complete group therapy several times per week, community meetings, consulting experts for unrelated health issues, plus getting lots of family support.

KEY takeaway

In this case, a different perspective on the original question could help your recovery journey more.

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.

Instead, it is a gradual process of personal discovery and evaluation, accepting yourself and being in the company of supportive systems that will make it easier.

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Good question.

Others before you have almost always found that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was locked in a pattern of addiction, acting out the same coping mechanism to the point of exhaustion.


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 Carnwadric Addiction Treatment, More Trying Than Others?

#1

Adjusting To Detox

Detox can be challenging in the first four to six days as the mental and physical systems are trying to come to terms with limited substance intake.

During this time, make sure that the specialist handling your case knows about any kind of symptoms you may be experiencing to ensure an appropriate and painless detox process.

#2

Redrawing Social Boundaries

Those who have very strong family or other connections, may struggle with the loss of this connection, temporarily.

 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 From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

Succeeding in psychologically and emotionally switching from the addictive mental attitude that comprises irresponsible behaviour and dependence, to one of recovery, can be an uphill task.

Still, after some time in rehab, things get better.

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.

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • 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.
  • Going back to old ways of coping after treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapsing.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • A bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • Unwillingness to let go of, or break contact with, a previous known trigger for addictive tendencies or behaviour.

How Do I Predict If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

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.

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.

What's The Difference Between Going To Rehab And Tapering Down On My Own?

Private rehabilitation provides a well-managed and expertly supervised process for detox and safe withdrawal. In addition, there is professional monitoring of the recovery journey and symptoms at every step.

Tapering down alcohol intake independently, without professional assistance, can be extremely dangerous and is expressly *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, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. This is non-negotiable.

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

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

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

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.

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

#1

What is your experience level in detoxing someone with my alcohol/drug intake and history?

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

Is it possible to enrol for a brief stay, then extend it after I am in the programme?

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#7

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

#8

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

#9

What is your refund policy?

Is There An Admission Process To Get Booked In To Rehab?

Following an initial telephone review, you would be required to book a room at the clinic by paying a deposit. 

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

However, a rehab clinic is not a hospital, and does not have the appropriate medical equipment or staffing to deal with issues such as advanced liver decomposition, high risk of seizure, or other complications.

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