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

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

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

Let's begin:

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

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

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.

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

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.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • Individuals content to live in denial about their mental health and continued irresponsible behaviour.

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

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Here’s an idea of typical treatment options for Cowcaddens 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.
  • 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.

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

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Make clear your expectations of the whole rehab programme. 

By reflecting on previous detox and rehab centres, you can easily identify what areas to concentrate on during treatment, and the triggers that still have power over you and need dealing with.

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

Ensure that you tell it as it as, in relation to previous use, patterns of abuse, alcohol intake, and recent use.

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

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

Relapse Prevention

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. 

Where do you feel most helpless in your recovery process, and need enhanced support levels to make it through? 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?

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

People in rehab are accountable for their long term recovery, and by extension, their success.

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.

Simply put, to succeed in staying sober after you have been through a private rehab, will greatly depend on your will to succeed and follow the teachings.

Rehab is a short-term, primary care intervention in a specialised setting, that can support you in reaching the next steps of your bigger recovery journey.

Would Recovery Activities Take A Lot Of Time Out Of My Life, In An Average Week, After 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.

For other to find a firm footing, they will have to attend group therapy several times a week, see professional health practitioners to deal with other complications, gets tons of support from people around them and attend mutual aid sessions.

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*.

Recovery isn’t a one-time process that you go through, and end up being sober for the rest of your life.

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 Do I Have To Give Up, To Become Sober?

Good 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.

By working with a cognitive behavioural therapist, you can release old patterns and old ways of doing things, and learn fresh methods instead.

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

#1

Detox Symptoms

The first 48 to 72 hours can be traumatic since the mind and body of the person is in the process of adapting to the lessened substance intake.

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

Clients with established links with loved ones or friends may at first find it challenging when they are cut off.

 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

Moving Beyond The Mindset Of Addiction

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

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

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.

 As you do this for a long period, you will realise that the long-term gains can be spectacular.

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • Going back to old ways of coping after treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapsing.
  • 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 experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Over-reliance on non-expert sources of assistance.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

How Can I Tell If Rehab Will Work For Me, And My History With Drugs Or Alcohol Addiction?

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

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.

How Is Rehab Different To AA?

Residential Rehab Treatment v Alcoholics Anonymous Cowcaddens
Residential Rehab
  • Rehab is a clinically managed environment providing for primary care services under one roof and offered by one provider. Such needs include relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic services.
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.

Others Have Suggested I Taper Down On My Own, And Don't Need Help - Is That Correct?

By admitting to rehab, you will be embracing professionally supervised surroundings for detox and safe withdrawal. Here, you will also get constant feedback on your progress and symptoms.

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

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

It's vital to consult your regular medical professional before registering for any kind of alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

Essentially, very few clinics can offer refund after you relapse because long-term recovery is the responsibility of the client.

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.

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 Cowcaddens, Glasgow?

#1

How experienced are you in detoxing clients with a history like mine?

#2

What treatment duration do you suggest for my needs?

#3

Can I admit for a shorter duration initially, then extend my stay once in the clinic?

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Does the clinic let the next of kin attend for visits? 

#7

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

#8

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

#9

Is there any refund policy I should be aware of?

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

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

The next step the provider would take is to ask the clinical staff for medical consent. Thereafter, it can take one to two days to be admitted.

For Urgent Or Emergency Drug/Alcohol Problems, Does A Rehab Centre Take Care Of That?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. This is mandatory.

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