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

Maybe we can be your guide.

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

Does Rehab Include Help For The Behavioural Elements Of Addiction?

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

Rehab can be described as the therapeutic component of residential treatment and it takes care of the subconscious psychological aspects of addiction.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab is NOT advisable for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • 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 time you will spend in a rehab centre is based on your individual case.

Look at the treatment options near Craigton and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Ranging from one week to a week and a half, a general detox programme that caters for alcohol or drug addicts but there is usually no therapy included.
  • 14-28 days - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • More than 28 days - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Unless the addict starts treatment, it will be challenging to ascertain the exact duration of treatment needed. This is because being in a rehab clinic is the best time to monitor progress without the presence of drugs or alcohol.

In the event of significant progress in the treatment centre after the 28 days have passed, one can leave the facility, although some people might stay for a bit longer.

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

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Make clear your expectations of the whole rehab programme. 

Use previous work in detox or rehabilitation to understand what areas need your focus, and the triggers that still need a lot of attention.

Choose an addiction rehabilitation programme near Craigton that will select and assign one support worker to help you navigate through your stay

Physical 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 in your best interest to speak the truth about patterns of drug and alcohol intake, former periods of use, and the most 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.

Therapy Time

It is true that people have particular addictive trends that rule over their lives. This is why it is advisable to concentrate on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling sessions to get some psychological wins.

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 your strategy to deal with these vulnerable moments before they happen? What could make this progress a reality? 

More time in therapy? Support from outwith the programme, especially from a sponsor located near Rehab Craigton or a previous recovery partner?

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

How Many Succeed In Staying Dry Or Clean, Following Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment?

More than 90% of people in detox successfully complete that part of the programme. By staying in a secure environment, people are more inclined to finish the detox programme.

In the long run, rehab success rates can differ, because the client (him)(her)self is responsible for their own long-term recovery process.

Clients searching for rehab services are increasingly seeking reassurance about the success of the services offered and this has made it hard to keep an eye on *all* former clients for purposes of ongoing evaluation.

The short answer here is that success is down to you - a rehab clinic can provide the best therapy and support in the world - but if you take no action or pay no attention, success will be lacking.

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 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 others, their weekly calendar will involve some group therapy and a daily meeting with their sponsor.

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.

quotation mark

KEY takeaway

Still, it doesn’t hurt to rethink your perspective on this question.

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

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 Do I Have To Give Up, To Become Sober?

Excellent question.

For others who have experienced the same scenario, in most cases, they have come to terms with letting go of a part of them that was locked up in a cycle of addiction.


This does not mean we have to grin and bear a tremendous amount of emotional stress in order to release the need to drink or misuse substances, but instead seek to understand, in a therapeutic environment, the real reasons we indulge in these behaviours and what we're trying to gain by doing so.

An expert cognitive behavioural therapist will assist you to get the understanding required to eliminate patterns, not forcefully, but via doing away with old ways of handling the situation and learning new ways.

What Are The Top Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Craigton Struggle With?

#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 a time to be vocal about your symptoms, with the professionals available, in order to maintain a detox that is both safe and comfortable.

#2

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

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

 But when these connections comprise of parties directly involved in drug or alcohol abuse such as sellers and other addicts, cutting links is recommended.

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

Emotional Transformation

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.

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.

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

Are There Any Common Patterns In Those Who Aren't Successful In Long Term Addiction Recovery?

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • 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. 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?

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

When you admit that your life is in your own hands, follow instructions and embrace the resources and support systems necessary to help you in your recovery, odds are, that you will succeed.

What Are The Differences Between AA And Rehab?

Residential Rehab Treatment v Alcoholics Anonymous Craigton
Rehab Treatment
  • 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 Meetings
  • 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?

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.

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

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

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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

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

To be realistic, not many clinics will refund you following a relapse, given that you are personally responsible for your own recovery.

But this is not an indication that everything is up to you, without help, but that you must pinpoint the areas that you are vulnerable in, and seek support.

Some clinics offer an additional stay if relapse occurs, but again, this varies, check with the prospective provider you're speaking with.

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

#1

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

#2

How long do I have to take the treatment?

#3

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

#4

Please elaborate on options for relapse prevention?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

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

#7

With COVID-19 ravaging the world, have you changed any part of your services?

#8

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

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

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

After the provider has gotten consent for admission from the medical team, they can proceed to admit you to the facility; a process that usually takes 1-2 days.

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.

quotation mark

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

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.
