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

Maybe we can be your guide.

Below, we've laid out the key need-to-knows, to narrow down the search and find drug or alcohol treatment which meets your needs for cost, location, and getting help fast, in Garthamlock, 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 usually means the therapeutic treatment that addresses the bottled up psychological components of addiction, and takes place after the primary physical detox period.

Detox .v. Rehab In Garthamlock, Glasgow

  • Supervised detox
  • All treatment under one roof

Rehab

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.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • Individuals content to live in denial about their mental health and continued irresponsible behaviour.

 

How Long Should A Stay In Alcohol/Drug Rehab Treatment Last?

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Garthamlock 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 - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • Over 28 days - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

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.

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.

What Should I Make A Point Of Doing, During Rehab Garthamlock?

Care Plan

Have a honest approach to what you need to achieve out of rehab treatment. 

 

Use previous work in detox or rehabilitation to understand what areas need your focus, and the triggers that still need a lot of attention.

Life will be much easier if you pick a rehab clinic in Garthamlock that will provide you with a personal case manager to help you cope with the process.

 

Detox

Don't shy away from talking honestly with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist  assigned to you, regarding the detox regimen with the best chance of working. 

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 Garthamlock clinic.

Therapy Time

It is true that people have particular addictive trends that rule over their lives. This is why it is advisable to concentrate on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling sessions to get some psychological wins.

 

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

Taking a moment and assessing what kind of gains you have made from the therapy sessions, one-on-one interactions, and support groups, is highly recommended before committing to specifics in your aftercare plan. 

How long does it take to recover from alcohol addiction?

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? Are there any triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

In what ways could you plan to pre-empt these susceptible areas, and move towards their permanent resolution? What is the action needed to make this happen? 

Extra therapy sessions? External aid by sponsors or long-term recovery support groups?

You can come up with resources that are linked to your particular life situation.

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 90%+. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

In the long run, how a person fares in rehab is directly proportional to the effort they put in to the process.

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.

Denying Alcohol due to Anxiety.

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 intervention in a specialist environment; to assist you to the next stage of your long term recovery journey.

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.

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.

 

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

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

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*.

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

Recovery is a continuous exercise that involves a lot of introspection, self-acceptance and having a supportive network around you.

 

What Do I Have To Give Up, To Become Sober?

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.

Using a cognitive behavioural therapist comes with lots of benefits, for instance, you can get the understanding required to learn new strategies and release old ones.

What Are The Top 3 Most Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Garthamlock, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Early 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.

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

#2

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

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

 But when these groups with strong ties to the client include active users and dealers, it is in the best interest of the client to sever them.

In circumstances where genuine support systems may be interfered with, there can be a middle point where visitation and communication channels with these connections are established to make the stay at the clinic more bearable.

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

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Not seeking support or assistance when experiencing a trigger situation.
  • 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.
  • Absent support systems from family and friends together with trigger situations and stressors, which become a recipe for disaster.
  • 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 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 In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Is Likely To Help Someone With My Pattern Of 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.

 

How Are Alcoholics Anonymous, And Rehab, Different?

Rehab .v. AA In Garthamlock
Residential Rehab
  • Rehab is a clinically controlled environment that caters for the primary care requirements such as prevention of relapse, therapeutic intervention, and detox, in a residential setting by a single provider.
Alcoholics Anonymous 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.

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

In private rehab, there is professional feedback on the whole detox programme, safe withdrawal, supervision of progress, all done in regulated surroundings.

Tapering off alcohol minus any professional aid can harm you and is not advisable.

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.

 

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. This is non-negotiable.

 

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

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.

 

This is not to say that you have to carry all the effort personally, but that it is vital to establish your weak points in recovery, and request help where needed, along the way.

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 Garthamlock, 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

Is it possible to enrol for a brief stay, then extend it after I am in the programme?

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#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?

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

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

The next step the provider would take is to ask the clinical staff for medical consent. Thereafter, it can take one to two days to be admitted.

I/We Need Help Urgently, What Should I/We Do?

Important: In the event of a serious medical emergency, seeing a local healthcare professional is a must.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

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

What if your detox or rehab case is not an emergency? In this case, you can gain admission in many clinics within one or two days.
