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

Maybe we can be your guide.

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

Let's go.

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

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

Rehab comprises the therapeutic aspects of treatment that deal with the subconscious psychological elements of addictive behaviour and generally takes place following the detox phase.

  • Includes supervised detox

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab should probably be avoided 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.

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

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

The following treatment options are available near Gartloch 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.
  • 28 days and above - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

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.

 

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

Setting Goals For Your 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.

Try to pick a Gartloch clinic which provides a personally assigned case manager, who works with you personally, throughout the addiction rehabilitation programme.

 

Physical Detox

Be proactive in talking with the consultant psychiatrist or expert after entering rehab and come to an agreement regarding the detox regimen you'll follow. 

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

By presenting the situation as it is, the specialists will be able to place you on an ideal detox plan and it’ll ensure that you have an easier time at the Rehab Gartloch treatment 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.

 

Planning For The Future

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. 

 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Are there any triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. Those who begin detox in a supervised treatment centre are highly likely to finish.

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

In order to measure success metrics, it is now becoming more difficult for recovery centres to stay in contact with former clients over very long periods of time, as most patients are searching for promises regarding very long-term success rates.

 

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 Will My Weekly Routine Change, After Drug/Alcohol Rehab?

This will vary depending on (e.g.) how far along your recovery journey you are; how many supports you have around you; how many day-to-day triggers you typically experience in your life right now; how much left over work you had from the therapeutic gains made in treatment; and many others.

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

 

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.

 

quotationmark

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*.

Recovery is not a series of "secret" steps that you undertake a few times, to be rewarded with long term sobriety.

Instead, it is a gradual process of personal discovery and evaluation, accepting yourself and being in the company of supportive systems that will make it easier.

 

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Excellent 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.


This does not mean that we must smile and suffer an enormous amount of mental discomfort to alleviate the urge to drink or misuse medications, but should strive to consider the true reason we engage in these actions and what we are seeking to accomplish by doing so.

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.

 

Free Personalised Advice

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

#1

Early 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 Harmful Social Influences

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

 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.

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 Reasons Some People Fail To Achieve Lasting Recovery From Drug/Alcohol Addiction?

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • 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 with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

 

Is Rehab Likely To Work For Someone Like Me, With My History Of Usage, And Intake Pattern?

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.

 

Are Rehab And Alcoholics Anonymous Different, Really?

Rehab .v. AA In Gartloch
Rehab Clinic Treatment
  • 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
  • For a non-clinical and mutual aid background where individuals can freely pour out their hearts regarding their recovery journey, AA is the best place.

Others Have Suggested I Taper Down On My Own, And Don't Need Help - Is That Correct?

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

Decreasing your alcohol intake on your own can be dangerous; always seek professional help.

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. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

 

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

To be on the safe side, check with the clinic re their refund policy before committing.

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

Other rehab clinics provide an extended stay if there is a relapse but again it is important to inquire first.

 

What Should I Ask, When Vetting Treatment Clinics Near Gartloch, Glasgow?

#1

Are you experienced in dealing with clients in the same situation as mine, regarding detox and intake levels?

#2

What treatment duration do you suggest for my needs?

#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 the aftercare services part of the final charges?

#6

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

#7

With COVID-19 ravaging the world, have you changed any part of your services?

#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?

 

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For 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. 

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

For Urgent Or Emergency Drug/Alcohol Problems, Does A Rehab Centre Take Care Of That?

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

quotationmark

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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.
