What Are The Differences Between Alcohol/Drug Detox And Rehab?

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

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

Rehab is NOT advisable 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 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 Long Should A Stay In Alcohol/Drug Rehab Treatment Last?

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Fullarton 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.
  • More than 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.

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

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

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

By reflecting on previous detox and rehab centres, you can easily identify what areas to concentrate on during treatment, and the triggers that still have power over you and need dealing with.

It's best to select a Fullarton treatment service that will assign a case manager, to ease your way throughout the programme.

Initial 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.

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.

Therapeutic Time

Focus on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling you receive since they can help you make tremendous headway into addictive patterns.

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

You should not commit to an aftercare plan without first reflecting on all the wins you have garnered from all the sessions you have been involved in while in rehab. 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

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

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. By staying in a secure environment, people are more inclined to finish the detox programme.

People in rehab are accountable for their long term recovery, and by extension, their success.

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.

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-lived primary treatment, conducted in a specialised, secure setting, to help you navigate to the subsequent stage of your recovery journey.

How Much Time Will Ongoing Long-Term Addiction Recovery Take Out Of My Life Each Week?

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.

Other client’s weekly diaries will include contact with a sponsor, group therapy, plus several weekly mutual aid discussions.

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

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

We have observed over the years that people who have realised that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*, rather than a process that takes from their lives, tend to enjoy long term success, even over 20-30 years sober.

It is wrong to assume that recovery involves some specific secret steps that you go through to achieve a lifetime of sobriety.

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?

Good 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 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 Fullarton?

#1

Early Detox Symptoms

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.

By speaking out regarding symptoms during this period, you will enable your specialist to come up with a more comfortable detox plan.

#2

Releasing Negative 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.

But in cases where the connections, for instance, loved ones provide real support, it is advisable to sit down with the admissions crew and plan for supervised visits to make the person’s experience less traumatising.

#3

Moving From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

Succeeding in psychologically and emotionally switching from the addictive mental attitude that comprises irresponsible behaviour and dependence, to one of recovery, can be an uphill task.

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.

 By doing this for an extended period of time, you will discover that it will add more value to the long-term recovery process.

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

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. 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.
  • Returning to long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • Chronic lack of family or external support channels combined with recurrent stressor or trigger situations that were not prepared for, or were not anticipated.
  • 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. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

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?

Rehab

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering Down On My Own?

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.

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. This is non-negotiable.

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

Consult with the particular rehab you're considering, regarding their refund policy before entering their programme.

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

Does this mean that you are responsible for all the work? No. In as much you have to put in some work, it is recommended that you look for vulnerabilities in your own recovery and actively ask to be helped.

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

#1

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

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#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 overall cost?

#6

Does the clinic let the next of kin attend for visits? 

#7

What changes have you made to your programme, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?

#8

Can you send me a copy of your latest Care Quality Commission or Care Inspectorate inspection reports and ratings?

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

You'll usually complete a telephone assessment, and most providers at this point will request payment of a deposit, in order to hold a room for you, in their facility. 

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.

Do Rehab Clinics Deal With Needs For Urgent Help Relating To Alcohol Or Drugs?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

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.

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