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

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

In our guide below, you'll find the right questions to ask an addiction clinic (and the right answers).

Let's go.

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

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.

Initial Detox .v. Full Rehab Programme In Dennistoun, Glasgow

Detox-Only
  • Includes supervised detox
  • Fully residential
  • No therapy component
  • No post-detox support
Full Rehab Treatment
  • Professional detox
  • Residential care
  • Individualised therapy
  • Ongoing help

 

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • Individuals who are hesitant to make sense of their drug/alcohol addiction and stick to the subsequent recommendations provided.
  • People with no qualms about continuing with their destructive behaviour and not ready to personally pull up their sleeves and help themselves.

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

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

The following treatment options are available near Dennistoun and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • Over 28 days - Standard stay that consist of increased therapy sessions and coordinating for aftercare help.

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.

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.

 

What Elements Of Drug/Alcohol Treatment Dennistoun Do I Focus On, For Lasting Recovery?

Care Plan

Be transparent about what you hope to achieve in the rehab centre. 

 

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.

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

 

Initial 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. 

Be open and honest with staff, re previous usage, patterns of use, and recency of use.

Lying is not recommended since the treatment you will get is dependent on your answers.

Therapeutic 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

It is important to evaluate everything you’ve learned from support groups, keywork discussions, and one-on-one sessions. 

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

In the long run, how a person fares in rehab is directly proportional to the effort they put in to the 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.

 

Even after receiving superior therapy services from a private rehab, whether or not you will be successful all boils down to your effort.

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 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.

For some, their weekly timetable will be maintained by a daily check-in with their sponsor and a few mutual aid meetings per week.

 

Some clients will find it hard to be stable unless they complete group therapy several times per week, community meetings, consulting experts for unrelated health issues, plus getting lots of family support.

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.

Recovery is an ongoing practice of self-insight, self-acceptance, and surrounding oneself with active supports that can help all this happen.

 

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Great 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.

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 Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Dennistoun?

#1

Reactions To Detox

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.

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

Releasing Harmful Social Influences

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

 This may be a step in a better direction in some situations, where the client's social community comprises those involved in active addiction, such as dealers and others in active addiction.

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.

 

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

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • Reverting to old patterns after treatment, leading to higher chances of relapsing.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • A bad initial experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

 

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

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

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.

 

What Are The Differences Between AA And Rehab?

Residential Rehab Treatment v Alcoholics Anonymous Dennistoun
Rehab Treatment
  • Rehab essentially involves services like relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic intervention under one roof, by one provider in a clinically regulated environment.
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.

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

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

 

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

 

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

To be on the safe side, check with the clinic re their refund policy before committing.

This is highly unlikely since according to most clinics, the recovery process is largely in the hands of the client.

 

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 Dennistoun, Glasgow, Is A Good Match?

#1

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

#2

For my needs, what treatment length do you suggest?

#3

Will I be allowed to admit for a short duration of treatment and increase it later, once settled?

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

Do you allow visits from family? 

#7

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

#8

I'd like copies of the up-to-date Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

What is your 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. 

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.

I/We Need Help Urgently, What Should I/We Do?

Important: In case of a serious health issue, seek medical assistance locally, without delay.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. This is non-negotiable.

Nevertheless, do not confuse a rehab centre with a hospital as it doesn’t have the equipment or personnel to handle advanced medical issues like liver decomposition, seizures and other problems.

What if your detox or rehab case is not an emergency? In this case, you can gain admission in many clinics within one or two days.
