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

Maybe we can be your guide.

Get ready, and take notes from our top answers below, to finding the right addiction treatment near Dumbreck, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

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

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.

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

Rehab is NOT 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.

Is A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab Always The Same Length?

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

The following treatment options are available near Dumbreck 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 - 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.

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 Dumbreck?

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

Be forthright and honest in what you expect from the rehab programme. 

Think back to past detoxes or rehabilitation centres to learn what areas should be dealt with in treatment and how to deal with triggers to alcohol or drug use.

Try to pick a Dumbreck clinic which provides a personally assigned case manager, who works with you personally, throughout the addiction rehabilitation programme.

Physical 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. 

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

By presenting the situation as it is, the specialists will be able to place you on an ideal detox plan and it’ll ensure that you have an easier time at the Rehab Dumbreck treatment centre.

Therapy Insights

Try to take maximum advantage of the time you have in therapy, e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, and counselling work, as this is where the main psychological breakthroughs can be made, as addiction affects you personally, and your personal pattern of addiction expresses itself in your life.

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 your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Are there any mental health triggers that you have uncovered that you weren't aware of before?

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

It also becomes increasingly difficult for rehab clinics to keep in touch with former clients, over very long time periods, in order to track success or efficiency rates.

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

Should I Expect To Change A Lot Of My Daily Routine, After Drug/Alcohol 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

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

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 is not a series of "secret" steps that you undertake a few times, to be rewarded with long term sobriety.

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.

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Good question.

Others before you have almost always found that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was locked in a pattern of addiction, acting out the same coping mechanism to the point of exhaustion.


It doesn't mean that we must smile and endure immense emotional tension to release the urge to drink or consume drugs, but rather to realise the true underlying causes, in a clinical setting.

Using a cognitive behavioural therapist comes with lots of benefits, for instance, you can get the understanding required to learn new strategies and release old ones.

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

#1

Reactions To Detox

The initial 48-72 hours of detox can be the most trying, physically and emotionally, as the body and mind adjust to reduced substance intake, and detox begins.

In this phase, inform the specialists about your symptoms to ensure that the detox is suitably safe for you.

#2

Releasing Negative Social Influences

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

 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

The Mental Shift From Dependence To Responsibility

Making the emotional/psychological transition from the mindset of addiction (dependence, co-dependence, lack of responsibility, chaotic lifestyle) to the mindset of recovery, can be challenging.

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

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.

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

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. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • Going back to old ways of coping after treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapsing.
  • 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.
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • Unwillingness to let go of, or break contact with, a previous known trigger for addictive tendencies or 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.

Broadly speaking, if you are willing to accept help, willing to follow directions, accept that your life is your responsibility, and are prepared to seek out the required resource and support to help you recover, your chances of lasting success can increase.

How Is Rehab Different To AA?

Rehab .v. Alcoholics Anonymous Dumbreck
Residential Rehab
  • 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 & Mutual Aid Meetings
  • Do you need non-clinical and mutual aid surroundings where people share their life journey and encourage others? If yes, then head to AA.

Can't I Just Taper Down On My Own? Why Do I Need Alcohol Or Drug Rehab?

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.

When professional management of symptoms is absent, there can be health complications such as seizures, heart issues, liver problems, fluctuations in blood pressure, among others.

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

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.

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.

While some facilities provide an extended stay in the event of a relapse, it differs from provider to provider so it pays to make sure.

What 9 Questions Should I Ask Any Alcohol/Drug Rehab Clinic I'm Considering Near Dumbreck, Glasgow?

#1

What is your experience level in detoxing someone with my alcohol/drug intake and history?

#2

For my needs, what treatment length do you suggest?

#3

Is it possible to enrol for a brief stay, then extend it after I am in the programme?

#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

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

#9

Does you clinic have a policy on issuing refunds?

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For Rehab?

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.

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

Rehab is not the same as emergency expert medical care. Rehabs commonly offer regular, non-urgent detox solutions, plus therapeutic help.

Rehab facilities cannot take the place of hospitals since they lack the advanced equipment and trained staff to deal with any arising issues like liver decomposition and seizures.

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