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

Maybe we can help you navigate.

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

Let's get started.

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

Detox and rehab in addiction care are usually provided as a package.

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.

Detox-Only
Rehab
  • Supervised detox
  • Fully residential
  • Individual care planning & therapy input
  • Long term support

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • People living with addictive behaviour who are not bothered by their life of denial, with no problem about letting other people put in all the work.

How Do I Work Out How Long To Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Addiction Rehab?

The time you will spend in a rehab centre is based on your individual case.

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Crossmyloof 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.
  • 28+ days - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

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.

If an individual feels better after 28 days in the treatment centre, they may depart, but many stay beyond this.

How Do I Make Best Use Of My Time, In Drug/Alcohol Rehab Treatment Crossmyloof?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

Use the learnings you've had from experience of previous detoxes, or even previous rehab treatment, to help inform what you should tackle in treatment, where the focus should be, what triggers need underlying or additional work.

Do your best to find an addiction treatment programme near Crossmyloof which has a specialist assigned to you personally, as long as you are there.

Detox

Be proactive in talking with the consultant psychiatrist or expert after entering rehab and come to an agreement regarding the detox regimen you'll follow. 

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

The info you provide at this stage can determine your prescribed detox regimen and ultimately a comfortable stay at the Rehab Crossmyloof rehab centre.

Therapeutic Help

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.

Aftercare Planning

Taking a moment and assessing what kind of gains you have made from the therapy sessions, one-on-one interactions, and support groups, is highly recommended before committing to specifics in your aftercare plan. 

In what areas of your recovery process are you particularly vulnerable, and need bolstering, to tolerate the ups and downs of day to day life? What triggers have you discovered that need attention, that you weren't aware of before?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

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

In the long run, rehab success rates can differ, because the client (him)(her)self is responsible for their own long-term recovery 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 treatment, to get you on the next step of your journey to healing.

After Addiction Rehab, Does Recovery Take Up A Lot Of Time?

This will differ from individual to individual but the common issues include how long the recovery process has taken, the supports in your life, daily triggers in your life at the moment, and the work still to be done in relation to the therapeutic steps during treatment, among others.

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

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

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*.

Being in recovery doesn’t mean that you follow some simple rules and voila!... you beat addiction.

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 My Current Lifestyle, Do I Need To Say Goodbye To, To Become Sober?

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 need to smile and suffer an immense amount of mental discomfort to move beyond the need to drink or consume drugs, but instead, we should strive to explore the true motives behind these habits.

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 Crossmyloof Addiction Treatment, More Trying Than Others?

#1

Detox Symptoms

Detox can be challenging in the first four to six days as the mental and physical systems are trying to come to terms with limited substance intake.

During this time, make sure that the specialist handling your case knows about any kind of symptoms you may be experiencing to ensure an appropriate and painless detox process.

#2

Releasing Harmful Social Influences

Those who have very strong family or other connections, may struggle with the loss of this connection, temporarily.

 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

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.

Despite this, with an extended stay in rehab, people are able to cope more easily.

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.

 If you keep absorbing positive attitudes over time, it will be more profitable for your long-term recovery.

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

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. 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.
  • Returning to long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • 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. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • By being reluctant to get rid of habits that trigger old drug or alcohol habits.

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

This can't be predicted easily since even the worst addictive habits can be broken by being steadfast in following the process, specifically the therapy regimen.

Broadly speaking, if you are willing to receive assistance, willing to follow instructions, accept that your life is your own responsibility, and are willing to pursue the services and care needed to help you heal, your chances of success will improve.

What's The Difference Between Going To Rehab And 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.

Weaning off alcohol alone, without expert support, can be life-threatening and is specifically 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. This is a must.

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

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 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.

What Are 9 Essential Questions To Ask A Potential Treatment Provider Near Crossmyloof, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

How long should I stay in the clinic?

#3

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

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

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

#7

Due to COVID-19, are there any modifications to your policies or care?

#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?

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For Rehab?

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

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

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 the same as emergency expert medical care. Rehab facilities can handle basic detox requirements plus therapeutic care afterwards.

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.

Still, for any non-emergency detox/rehab services, most clinics can get you a place in a couple of days.
