Hundreds in Corkerhill, Glasgow struggle to find the right help for alcohol or drug addiction.

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 get started.

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

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.

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • People with no qualms about continuing with their destructive behaviour and not ready to personally pull up their sleeves and help themselves.

 

How Long Should A Stay In Alcohol/Drug Rehab Treatment Last?

The appropriate duration in  a treatment programme depends on your personal circumstances and history of addiction.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Corkerhill and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Common detox of 7 to 10 days for alcohol or drug treatment, without therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • Over 28 days - Typical stay, incorporating considerable therapy and planning for the future’s aftercare services.

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.

People who feel there have been positive results can leave the treatment centre after 28 days but if there is still some way to go, they can extend their stay.

 

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

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

Make clear your expectations of the whole 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.

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

 

Detox

Take an active role in discussion with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist, following your admission to rehab, when agreeing the detox protocol you'll undergo. 

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

Keep in mind that you have to give accurate information, as it will be crucial in deciding what kind of detox programme you will be put on.

 

Therapeutic Help

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

 

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

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 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?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

More than 90% of people in detox successfully complete that part of the programme. Those who begin detox in a supervised treatment centre are highly likely to finish.

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

Following pressure from potential clients regarding the long-term outcome of the rehab regimen, many rehab facilities face an uphill task when tracing former clients to gauge whether the programme was successful, in the very long term.

 

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 short term, primary care intervention in a specialist environment; to assist you to the next stage of your long term recovery journey.

What are the signs that a person requires medical help?

How Much Will My Weekly Routine Change, 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.

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

 

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 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.

Being in recovery means that you should be ready for a perpetual process of personal insight, self-approval, and getting real support backing you up.

 

What Aspects Of Life Need To Change, Dramatically, So That I Can Become Sober?

Great question.

Others starting out in recovery found out that it was vital to let go of an old part of themselves ingrained in addictive patterns.


It doesn’t imply that we have to put on brave faces and endure lots of emotional baggage to handle the urge to use, rather, we simply evaluate our situation in a controlled setting by learning why we use, and our intentions behind it.

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.

What Are The Top 3 Most Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Corkerhill, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Early Detox Symptoms

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

Releasing Harmful Social Influences

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.

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.

 

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.
  • 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.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • A bad initial experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • Unwillingness to let go of, or break contact with, a previous known trigger for addictive tendencies or behaviour.

 

 

Is It Possible To Say In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

This doesn’t have a precise answer as it depends on the devotion that the client puts in the process, particularly in therapy.

By accepting to be helped, following the directives given, acknowledging that you’re responsible for your own life and seeking the needful resources and support, you will significantly enhance the chances of recovering.

 

What Are The Differences Between AA And Rehab?

Rehab .v. Alcoholics Anonymous Corkerhill
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
  • Do you need non-clinical and mutual aid surroundings where people share their life journey and encourage others? If yes, then head to AA.

Can't I Just Taper Down On My Own? Why Do I Need Alcohol Or Drug Rehab?

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 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. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

 

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive 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.

While some facilities provide an extended stay in the event of a relapse, it differs from provider to provider so it pays to make sure.

 

 

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

#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

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

Are the aftercare services part of the final charges?

#6

Is it possible to have close relatives visit me in the clinic? 

#7

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

#8

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

#9

Does you clinic have a policy on issuing refunds?

 

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. 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.
