Finding safe, professional help for drug or alcohol problems in Glasgow, Glasgow can be overwhelming. How do you find the right treatment, at the right cost?

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

In our guide below, you'll find the right questions to ask an addiction clinic (and the right answers).

Let's get started.

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

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

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.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab is NOT advisable for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • 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.

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

How long you will be a resident of the rehab centre is influenced by your particular situation.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Glasgow 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 - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • 28+ days - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

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.

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 Glasgow, To Get Best Possible Results?

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

Make clear your expectations of the whole rehab programme. 

Use the learnings you've had from experience of previous detoxes, or even previous rehab treatment, to help inform what you should tackle in treatment, where the focus should be, what triggers need underlying or additional work.

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

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. 

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 Glasgow rehab centre.

Therapy Time

Focus on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling you receive since they can help you make tremendous headway into addictive patterns.

Relapse Prevention

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

Where do you feel most helpless in your recovery process, and need enhanced support levels to make it through? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

How Many Succeed In Staying Dry Or Clean, Following Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

In the long run, rehab success rates can differ, because the client (him)(her)self is responsible for their own long-term recovery process.

The majority of people seeking a rehab programme need guarantees about extended success rates, and it can be difficult for clinics to track all previous clients, exhaustively.

It goes without saying that you are personally responsible for the success of your rehab process.

Rehab is a short-term, primary care treatment, to get you on the next step of your journey to healing.

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

This is dependent on a number of factors such as the point you are at in your journey of recovery, your existing supports, daily triggers you have to deal with, plus the remaining benefits from the therapeutic work during treatment.

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

In this case, a different perspective on the original question could help your recovery journey more.

From our personal experience, we have learned that people who succeed in long-term recovery ranging from 20 to 30 years don’t dwell much on the time it takes to recover but have come to terms with the idea 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.

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.

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

Great 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 mean that we must smile and endure immense emotional tension to release the urge to drink or consume drugs, but rather to realise the true underlying causes, in a clinical setting.

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 Glasgow?

#1

Detox Symptoms

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 a time to be vocal about your symptoms, with the professionals available, in order to maintain a detox that is both safe and comfortable.

#2

Releasing Negative Social Influences

There are some people with firm connections with loved ones and when they are severed, they end up having a tough time.

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

Some people entering the programme may be too attached to support systems such as loved ones and it is recommended to discuss this with the clinical specialists so as to agree on appropriate visit policies for the sake of the client.

#3

Emotional Transformation

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.

Rehab shouldn’t be thought of as just a centre to handle some emotional issues but also as an experience where you can learn from other people facing the same addictions as you.

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

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.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • Reverting to old patterns after treatment, leading to higher chances of relapsing.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • A bad initial experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

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 AA And Rehab Different?

Rehab .v. AA In Glasgow
Rehab Clinic Treatment
  • Rehab is a clinically managed environment providing for primary care services under one roof and offered by one provider. Such needs include relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic services.
AA & Mutual Aid Meetings
  • 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.

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering 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.

Tapering down alcohol intake independently, without professional assistance, can be extremely dangerous and is expressly *not* recommended.

If there is no professional management of the symptoms, there are higher chances of arising health issues like heart and liver complications, seizures, blood pressure problems, and others.

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?

Check with the individual rehab clinic you've engaged with, *before* entering treatment, about their refund policy.

This is highly unlikely since according to most clinics, the recovery process is largely in the hands of the client.

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.

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 Glasgow, Glasgow?

#1

Have you handled many clients with a drug/alcohol intake and case history like my own?

#2

What treatment duration do you suggest for my needs?

#3

Can I admit for detox-only, then increase my stay once admitted?

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Are the aftercare services part of the final charges?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

What changes have you made to your programme, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?

#8

Please send me the latest Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

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

Following an initial telephone review, you would be required to book a room at the clinic by paying a deposit. 

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.

Do Rehab Clinics Deal With Needs For Urgent Help Relating To Alcohol Or Drugs?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab is not a substitute for qualified emergency care. Rehab clinics offer standard detox services followed by therapeutic intervention.

Rehab facilities cannot take the place of hospitals since they lack the advanced equipment and trained staff to deal with any arising issues like liver decomposition and seizures.

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