Asking the right questions to find alcohol or drug help near East Kilbride, Glasgow can be a minefield.

Maybe we can help you navigate.

Here are the answers to the critical few FAQs you need to know, to help secure alcohol or drug treatment that meets your needs, near East Kilbride, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

You can get both rehab and detox services for addiction, in a single package.

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.

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab can't be recommended 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.
  • 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 Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

How long you will be a resident of the rehab centre is influenced by your particular situation.

Look at the treatment options near East Kilbride 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.
  • 28+ days - Typical stay, incorporating considerable therapy and planning for the future’s aftercare services.

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.

People who feel there have been positive results can leave the treatment centre after 28 days but if there is still some way to go, they can extend their stay.

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

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.

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

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. 

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 East Kilbride rehab centre.

Therapeutic Time

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.

Relapse Prevention

It pays to assess your progress from the support group sessions, therapy, keywork workshops and one-on-one discussions. 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Are there any mental health triggers that you have uncovered that you weren't aware of before?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

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

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 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 is relative, depending on variables such as how long your recovery journey has been, support structures around you, everyday triggers that you have to contend with, plus the work still to be done regarding the therapeutic gains realised in treatment.

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.

KEY takeaway

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

Clients who have welcomed the idea that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*, progress far better than those who view it as a burden that takes from their lives.

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.

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Good question.

Others starting out in recovery found out that it was vital to let go of an old part of themselves ingrained in addictive patterns.


It doesn’t imply that we have to put on brave faces and endure lots of emotional baggage to handle the urge to use, rather, we simply evaluate our situation in a controlled setting by learning why we use, and our intentions behind it.

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 Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near East Kilbride, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Adjusting To Detox

The first 48 to 72 hours can be traumatic since the mind and body of the person is in the process of adapting to the lessened 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

There are some people with firm connections with loved ones and when they are severed, they end up having a tough time.

 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

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.

Rehab shouldn’t be thought of as just a centre to handle some emotional issues but also as an experience where you can learn from other people facing the same addictions as 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?

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Taking up a programme of out-patient treatment, while knowing very well that you will face external stressors in your daily life that will impede your progress.
  • During recovery, returning to an old habit, coping mechanism, or way of life, raising the risk of a situation leading to relapse.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • Maybe someone had a miserable time during their first rehab, mutual aid, or treatment stint, and this experience led them to believe that rehab/treatment is not worth it.
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

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

This is difficult to predict since even the most extreme histories of addiction can be turned around, by someone who is determined, and dedicated enough, especially in the therapy elements of rehab.

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.

Others Have Suggested I Taper Down On My Own, And Don't Need Help - Is That Correct?

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.

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.

It's vital to consult your regular medical professional before registering for any kind of alcohol treatment. This is a must.

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.

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.

Some rehab facilities include an extension, should a client relapse, but to be on the safe side, it is better to confirm.

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

#1

Have you handled many clients with a drug/alcohol intake and case history like my own?

#2

How long should I stay in the clinic?

#3

Can I admit for a shorter duration initially, then extend my stay once in the clinic?

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#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

Is there any refund policy I should be aware of?

What Happens When I Select A Rehab Clinic To Admit To?

After you are through with an initial telephone assessment, the most likely course of action will be to pay an amount to book a room at the clinic. 

From this point, the provider gets authorisation from their medical staff, and thereafter can normally admit you within a day or two.

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

Important: When a medical emergency occurs, you are advised to seek local medical assistance urgently.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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 your problem is not emergency based, you can be admitted within 24 to 48 hours.
