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

Maybe we can be your guide.

If you've struggled to find the right questions to ask, meet our comprehensive guide to finding drug or alcohol addiction help in Cathcart, Glasgow, below.

Let's get started.

How Does Rehab For Alcohol/Drug Misuse Differ From A Detox-Only Approach?

Generally, addiction detox and rehab services, go hand in hand.

Rehab comprises the therapeutic aspects of treatment that deal with the subconscious psychological elements of addictive behaviour and generally takes place following the detox phase.

Detox-Only .v. Rehab Treatment In Cathcart, Glasgow

Detox-Only
  • Includes supervised detox
  • Residential care
  • No individual therapy elements
  • No post-detox support
Rehab
  • Includes supervised detox
  • Live in the clinic full-time
  • Individualised therapy
  • Ongoing help

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • People living with addictive behaviour who are not bothered by their life of denial, with no problem about letting other people put in all the work.

Is A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab Always The Same Length?

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

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

Someone who feels well-resourced already, may be ready to leave drug or alcohol treatment after 28 days; others may take longer.

What Should I Make A Point Of Doing, During Rehab Cathcart?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

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.

It's best to select a Cathcart treatment service that will assign a case manager, to ease your way throughout the programme.

Initial Detox

With the consultant psychiatrist or specialist at the rehab centre at your side, take part in discussing the most ideal detoxification path for your issue. 

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

Use the sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy in the rehab facility wisely, since it is where psychological gains are made.

Aftercare Planning

It is important to evaluate everything you’ve learned from support groups, keywork discussions, and one-on-one sessions. 

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 90%+. 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.

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

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

How Much Time Will Ongoing Long-Term Addiction Recovery Take Out Of My Life Each Week?

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 some, their weekly timetable will be maintained by a daily check-in with their sponsor and a few mutual aid meetings 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

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

From our personal experience, we have learned that people who succeed in long-term recovery ranging from 20 to 30 years don’t dwell much on the time it takes to recover but have come to terms with the idea that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

Being in recovery doesn’t mean that you follow some simple rules and voila!... you beat addiction.

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?

Excellent 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.


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 Cathcart 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.

This is when you should never be quiet about any symptoms since it will relevant to help staff facilitate a seamless and safe detox process.

#2

Redrawing Social Boundaries

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

 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 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

Emotional Transformation

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

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

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.

 If you keep absorbing positive attitudes over time, it will be more profitable for your long-term recovery.

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

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • Returning to long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

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.

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 Is Rehab Different To Tapering 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.

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.

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

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

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.

Does this imply that you should shoulder the entire burden? No, it means that you should establish your own areas of  vulnerability in recovery, and seek out appropriate support.

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

What Do I Ask, To Make Sure The Clinic I'm Speaking To Near Cathcart, Glasgow, Is A Good Match?

#1

Have you handled many clients with a drug/alcohol intake and case history like my own?

#2

For how long do I need to be treated?

#3

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

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#7

What changes have you made to your programme, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?

#8

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

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

In most cases, you will have an over-the-phone evaluation and most probably pay a deposit to get a reservation at the clinic. 

From this point, the provider gets authorisation from their medical staff, and thereafter can normally admit you within a day or two.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

Important: In the event of a serious medical emergency, seeing a local healthcare professional is a must.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. This is non-negotiable.

Still, rehab clinics are not hospitals and they are usually not equipped to deal with complicated health issues such as liver problems and seizures.

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