Hundreds in Garnethill, Glasgow struggle to find the right help for alcohol or drug addiction.

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 Garnethill, Glasgow.

Let's go.

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

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.

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • 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 Do I Work Out How Long To Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Addiction Rehab?

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

Here’s an idea of typical treatment options for Garnethill 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 - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • 28 days and above - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

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 Garnethill, To Get Best Possible Results?

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

Have realistic expectations regarding your stay in alcohol/drug rehab. 

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.

Choose an addiction rehabilitation programme near Garnethill that will select and assign one support worker to help you navigate through your stay

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

After admission, take an active part in the conversation with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist before committing to the detox procedure that you will undergo. 

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

Giving false answers, due to pride, is not a good idea at this stage, since your answers to questions will help determine the specific detox you receive, and hence your comfort and safety, in the Rehab Garnethill clinic.

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. 

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? What triggers have you discovered that need attention, that you weren't aware of before?

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.

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.

After Addiction Rehab, Does Recovery Take Up A Lot Of Time?

This will differ from individual to individual but the common issues include how long the recovery process has taken, the supports in your life, daily triggers in your life at the moment, and the work still to be done in relation to the therapeutic steps during treatment, among others.

As part of their weekly timetable, some clients will have to have an everyday check-in with designated sponsors, group therapy, and several mutual aid sessions or calls per week.

For others, it might be several sessions of therapy, attending secondary specialists for other health issues, and family support, amongst others, before a stable footing is found.

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.

Being in recovery doesn’t mean that you follow some simple rules and voila!... you beat addiction.

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.

What Aspects Of My Current Lifestyle, Do I Need To Say Goodbye To, To Become Sober?

Excellent 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.


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 Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Garnethill?

#1

Adjusting 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 when you should never be quiet about any symptoms since it will relevant to help staff facilitate a seamless and safe detox process.

#2

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

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

 But when these connections comprise of parties directly involved in drug or alcohol abuse such as sellers and other addicts, cutting links is recommended.

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

The Mental Shift From Dependence To Responsibility

To make the psychological and emotional evolution from an addicted individual with dependence and co-dependence, to a recovery mindset, is not a walk in the park.

Although this usually becomes easier with longer stay times in rehab.

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.

 As you do this for a long period, you will realise that the long-term gains can be spectacular.

Are There Any Common Patterns In Those Who Aren't Successful In Long Term Addiction Recovery?

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • Returning to long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • A poor first experience in treatment/rehab/mutual aid with one particular source, which later leads to a (mistaken) long term belief that "treatment/rehab doesn't work."
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • 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.

Broadly speaking, if you are willing to receive assistance, willing to follow instructions, accept that your life is your own responsibility, and are willing to pursue the services and care needed to help you heal, your chances of success will improve.

I Don't Think I Need Rehab, I Could Taper Down On My Own.

Private rehabilitation provides a well-managed and expertly supervised process for detox and safe withdrawal. In addition, there is professional monitoring of the recovery journey and symptoms at every step.

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

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. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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

Make sure that you understand where the rehab clinic stands regarding refunds.

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.

This does not mean you have to do all the work; but it does mean you need to clearly identify where you need help or support, for weak areas in your recovery, and actively ask for that help or support until you receive it.

There are clinics that have an extra stay as part of their services in the event the client relapses.

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

#1

What is your track record in dealing with cases similar to mine?

#2

For my needs, what treatment length do you suggest?

#3

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

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#8

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

#9

What is your refund policy?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

In most cases, you will have an over-the-phone evaluation and most probably pay a deposit to get a reservation at the clinic. 

Next, the admissions team would ask their personnel for medical permission to admit you and be admitted 24 to 48 hours later.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

You can never substitute rehab for competent medical care. Rehabs commonly offer regular, non-urgent detox solutions, plus therapeutic help.

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.

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