Trying to find the right drug/alcohol treatment near Fullarton, Glasgow can begin to feel like your going round in circles.

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

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 Fullarton, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

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

Rehab can be described as the therapeutic component of residential treatment and it takes care of the subconscious psychological aspects of addiction.

Detox .v. Rehab In Fullarton, Glasgow

  • No aftercare provided
Rehab Programme
  • Detox included
  • All treatment under one roof
  • Individual care planning & therapy input

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.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • Individuals addicted to drugs or alcohol who are not yet ready to stop using.

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

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 - A week to ten days - regular detox - alcohol or drug treatment stay, usually minus therapy
  • 14-28 days - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • Over 28 days - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

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.

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.

 

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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 Fullarton which has a specialist assigned to you personally, as long as you are there.

 

Physical Detox

With the help of the consultant psychiatrist or professional at the detox centre, make sure that you’re involved in selecting the most suitable detox regimen. 

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 Fullarton rehab centre.

Therapy Insights

Keeping in mind that addiction affects life in a personal way through recognised patterns, it is critical to give cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling all your attention to help overcome the underlying psychological issues.

 

Relapse Prevention

Before committing anything to paper, reflect firstly on the learnings you've gained from support groups, from mutual aid work, from keywork sessions, from one-to-one work. 

 

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?

How Likely Am I To Achieve Long Term Recovery, After Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

Ultimately, the success of a rehab stay differs from individual to individual because it depends on the mindset of the addict.

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.

 

The short answer here is that success is down to you - a rehab clinic can provide the best therapy and support in the world - but if you take no action or pay no attention, success will be lacking.

Rehab is a short term, primary care intervention in a specialist environment; to assist you to the next stage of your long term recovery journey.

 

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

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

Nevertheless, it is essential to change your mindset.

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 is a gradual and systematic process as opposed to a few magic steps that provide instant results.

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.

Others have almost all discovered that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was trapped in a cycle of addiction, carrying out the same coping mechanism in order to feel a little brief satisfaction, but with great long-term repercussions.


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.

An expert cognitive behavioural therapist will assist you to get the understanding required to eliminate patterns, not forcefully, but via doing away with old ways of handling the situation and learning new ways.

What Are The Top 3 Most Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Fullarton?

#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.

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 Negative Social Influences

People who are used to having family near them may briefly wrestle with their absence.

 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.

 

What Are The Most Common Reasons For Failure In Recovery Or Alcohol/Drug Rehab?

  • 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.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A bad initial experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

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

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.

When you admit that your life is in your own hands, follow instructions and embrace the resources and support systems necessary to help you in your recovery, odds are, that you will succeed.

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.

Weaning off alcohol alone, without expert support, can be life-threatening and is specifically not recommended.

With no professional input and monitoring of symptoms, the likelihood of health issues like cardiovascular and liver complications, blood pressure issues, seizures, and many more, increases significantly.

 

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

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.

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 clinics offer an additional stay if relapse occurs, but again, this varies, check with the prospective provider you're speaking with.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. This is mandatory.

Keep in mind that rehab clinics are not a substitute for hospitals - they do not have the equipment and experts to handle issues like liver complications and the probability of seizures.
