If you're looking for alcohol or drug addiction help near Corkerhill, Glasgow - you'll already know how confusing the options can be.

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

In the answers below, we showcase the insights needed to find the right help, at the right cost, near Corkerhill, Glasgow.

Let's get started.

What Are The Differences Between Detoxing And A Full Rehab Programme?

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

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.

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.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • Those who want to continue the pattern of denial and lack of responsibility, and want someone else to "do it all for them".

What's The Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

This is dependent on your individual needs.

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

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • More than 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.

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 Corkerhill?

Care Plan

Have a honest approach to what you need to achieve out of rehab treatment. 

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.

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

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.

Giving false answers, due to pride, is not a good idea at this stage, since your answers to questions will help determine the specific detox you receive, and hence your comfort and safety, in the Rehab Corkerhill clinic.

Therapy Time

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

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

You should not commit to an aftercare plan without first reflecting on all the wins you have garnered from all the sessions you have been involved in while in rehab. 

In your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Are there any triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

In what ways could you plan to pre-empt these susceptible areas, and move towards their permanent resolution? What could make this progress a reality? 

Increased therapy hours? Support from outwith the programme, especially from a sponsor located near Rehab Corkerhill or a previous recovery partner?

Are there suitable safety measures you could implement, that fit the day-to-day situations you face in life?

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

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. 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, how a person fares in rehab is directly proportional to the effort they put in to the process.

In order to measure success metrics, it is now becoming more difficult for recovery centres to stay in contact with former clients over very long periods of time, as most patients are searching for promises regarding very long-term success rates.

You can get all the support and five-star therapy services in the world but it is all in vain if you do not play your part and adhere to the learning.

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

Should I Expect To Change A Lot Of My Daily Routine, After Drug/Alcohol 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.

In some cases, some clients’ weekly schedules are upheld by everyday check-ins with respective sponsors and some mutual aid sittings every week.

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.

quotation mark

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.

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.

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Excellent question.

Others have discovered they had to give up a part of themselves that had become enmeshed in an addictive pattern.


This does not mean that we must smile and suffer an enormous amount of mental discomfort to alleviate the urge to drink or misuse medications, but should strive to consider the true reason we engage in these actions and what we are seeking to accomplish by doing so.

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.

Are There Elements Of Corkerhill Addiction Treatment, More Trying Than Others?

#1

Adjusting To Detox

The initial 48-72 hours of detox can be the most trying, physically and emotionally, as the body and mind adjust to reduced substance intake, and detox begins.

In this phase, inform the specialists about your symptoms to ensure that the detox is suitably safe for you.

#2

Releasing Negative Social Influences

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

 But when these groups with strong ties to the client include active users and dealers, it is in the best interest of the client to sever them.

Some people entering the programme may be too attached to support systems such as loved ones and it is recommended to discuss this with the clinical specialists so as to agree on appropriate visit policies for the sake of the client.

#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.

Nevertheless, the longer one stays in rehab, the easier it becomes.

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.

 By doing this for an extended period of time, you will discover that it will add more value to the long-term recovery process.

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

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Not seeking support or assistance when experiencing a trigger situation.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • 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.
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

Is Rehab Likely To Work For Someone Like Me, With My History Of Usage, And Intake Pattern?

Even the worst addicts can change, through dedication and determination, especially with commitment to ongoing therapy work.

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.

Are Rehab And Alcoholics Anonymous Different, Really?

Rehab .v. AA In Corkerhill
Rehab
  • Rehab is a clinically supervised setting, providing for primary care needs of detox, therapeutic intervention, and relapse prevention planning, in a residential environment, all under one roof, from one provider.
Alcoholics Anonymous
  • For a non-clinical and mutual aid background where individuals can freely pour out their hearts regarding their recovery journey, AA is the best place.

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering Down On My Own?

In private rehab, there is professional feedback on the whole detox programme, safe withdrawal, supervision of progress, all done in regulated surroundings.

Tapering off alcohol minus any professional aid can harm you and is not advisable.

Health issues are likely without clinical monitoring of signs, such as respiratory conditions, increases in blood pressure, risk of epilepsy, liver abnormalities, etc.

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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

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

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 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 Should I Ask, When Vetting Treatment Clinics Near Corkerhill, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

For how long do I need to be treated?

#3

Can I join your programme for a short stay at first and then add additional days later?

#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

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

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

What Happens When I Select A Rehab Clinic To Admit To?

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. 

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.

If I Need Alcohol Or Drug Help Urgently, Who Do I Contact?

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

quotation mark

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

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.

Nevertheless, if you have non-emergency need for detox and/or rehab, most standard rehab clinics can admit in 24-48 hours.
