Let's go.

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

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

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.

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

Rehab is NOT advisable for:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • Individuals addicted to drugs or alcohol who are not yet ready to stop using.

What's The Ideal Treatment Length For A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab?

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

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Cowcaddens 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 - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • Over 28 days - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It might be difficult to measure an ideal treatment duration until the individual is actually in the rehab clinic, gaining the required insights, and visualising their ability to deal with triggers and difficult scenarios without the coping mechanism of alcohol or drugs.

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.

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

Have realistic expectations regarding your stay in alcohol/drug rehab. 

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.

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 Help

Keeping in mind that addiction affects life in a personal way through recognised patterns, it is critical to give cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling all your attention to help overcome the underlying psychological issues.

Aftercare Planning

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 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?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

More than 90% of people in detox successfully complete that part of the programme. 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.

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.

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

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.

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

This depends on a number of issues, including the duration of your recovery process, the number of supports, everyday triggers you experience at present, and the remaining work from therapeutic benefits gotten in treatment.

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.

KEY TAKEAWAY

However, a little change of perspective could be useful here.

We have observed over the years that people who have realised that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*, rather than a process that takes from their lives, tend to enjoy long term success, even over 20-30 years sober.

Being in recovery is a gradual and systematic process as opposed to a few magic steps that provide instant results.

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.

What Aspects Of Life Need To Change, Dramatically, So That I Can 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.

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 Parts Of Rehab Treatment Near Cowcaddens Should I Expect To Be The Most Trying?

#1

Reactions To 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

Individuals with deep family connections or friendships may at first have a hard time coping with the loss of connection.

 At times, we find that these connections are with drug dealers and addicts and when separation happens, it is a step in the right 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

Changing The Mindset

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.

Although this usually becomes easier with longer stay times in rehab.

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.

 The longer you spend in treatment, the more you will gain in your recovery journey.

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • 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 experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

How Can I Tell In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Is Likely To Help Someone With My Pattern Of Addiction?

There is no definite answer for this since it takes effort and commitment to break even the toughest addictions, especially where therapy is concerned.

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.

I Don't Think I Need Rehab, I Could Taper 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.

Decreasing your alcohol intake on your own can be dangerous; always seek professional help.

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

Do I Get Treatment Costs Reimbursed If I Relapse After Treatment?

Consult with the particular rehab you're considering, regarding their refund policy before entering their programme.

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.

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

#1

What is your track record in dealing with cases similar to mine?

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

Can I admit for detox-only, then increase my stay once admitted?

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#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

Could you give me a copy of the current inspection and ratings Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate?

#9

What is your refund policy?

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

After first conducting a telephone questionnaire, most facilities would request you to pay a deposit to reserve a room at the clinic. 

Next, the admissions team would ask their personnel for medical permission to admit you and be admitted 24 to 48 hours later.

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

Important: in the event of serious emergency, you must contact your local emergency department and access qualified medical care immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab is not a substitute for qualified emergency care. A rehab clinic can deal with routine requirements for detox, and therapeutic intervention thereafter.

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.
