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

If you've struggled to find the right questions to ask, meet our comprehensive guide to finding drug or alcohol addiction help in Garthamlock, Glasgow, below.

Let's go.

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

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

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.

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • Drug or alcohol addicted individuals who aren't yet ready to relinquish their denial and irresponsibility, whilst still depending on others to make all the effort.

What's The Ideal Treatment Length For A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab?

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

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Garthamlock and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • 28 days and above - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It is only when the person is actually in the rehab clinic that we can know how long he’ll stay since this is the time they can be observed in different scenarios with no drugs and alcohol involved.

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 Garthamlock Do I Focus On, For Lasting Recovery?

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

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

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. 

It is vital to be transparent to the staff about how often you use, alcohol intake, and the last time you used/drank.

The info you provide at this stage can determine your prescribed detox regimen and ultimately a comfortable stay at the Rehab Garthamlock rehab centre.

Therapeutic Time

Use the sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy in the rehab facility wisely, since it is where psychological gains are made.

Aftercare Planning

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

In what areas of your recovery process are you particularly vulnerable, and need bolstering, to tolerate the ups and downs of day to day life? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

More than 90% of people in detox successfully complete that part of the programme. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

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.

Simply put, to succeed in staying sober after you have been through a private rehab, will greatly depend on your will to succeed and follow the teachings.

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.

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

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.

For some, their weekly timetable will be maintained by a daily check-in with their sponsor and a few mutual aid meetings per week.

Other will only make it after multiple mutual aid sessions, several group therapy sessions, a strong family support network, and consulting other specialists to deal with different health issues, among others.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

From what we have observed, clients with lasting success are those who have acknowledged that it is not about how long recovery work takes, but instead that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

Recovery isn’t a one-time process that you go through, and end up being sober for the rest of your life.

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?

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.

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.

Are There Elements Of Garthamlock Addiction Treatment, More Trying Than Others?

#1

Initial 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

Releasing Harmful Social Influences

Those who have very strong family or other connections, may struggle with the loss of this connection, temporarily.

 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

Changing The Mindset

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.

Still, after some time in rehab, things get better.

While in rehab, try to see it as a time to absorb the approach, and mental thinking style, of other people on the same path to recovery.

 If you keep absorbing positive attitudes over time, it will be more profitable for your long-term recovery.

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

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • 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 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."
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • By being reluctant to get rid of habits that trigger old drug or alcohol habits.

How Do I Predict If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

There is no definite answer for this since it takes effort and commitment to break even the toughest addictions, especially where therapy is concerned.

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 .v. Alcoholics Anonymous Garthamlock
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 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?

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.

Health issues are likely without clinical monitoring of signs, such as respiratory conditions, increases in blood pressure, risk of epilepsy, liver abnormalities, etc.

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

Will We Get A Refund If I/My Loved One Relapses?

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

To be realistic, not many clinics will refund you following a relapse, given that you are personally responsible for your own recovery.

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.

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

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

#1

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

#2

How long should I stay in the clinic?

#3

Will I be allowed to admit for a short duration of treatment and increase it later, once settled?

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

Do you allow visits from family? 

#7

What changes have you made to your service as a result of Covid-19?

#8

#9

Is There An Admission Process To Get Booked In To Rehab?

After first conducting a telephone questionnaire, most facilities would request you to pay a deposit to reserve a room at the clinic. 

From here, the admissions team will request medical approval for your admission from their staff, and you would normally admit to treatment 24-48 hrs later.

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 a substitute for qualified emergency care. Rehabs commonly offer regular, non-urgent detox solutions, plus therapeutic help.

Still, rehab clinics are not hospitals and they are usually not equipped to deal with complicated health issues such as liver problems and seizures.

Nevertheless, if you have non-emergency need for detox and/or rehab, most standard rehab clinics can admit in 24-48 hours.
