Maybe we can help you navigate.

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 Gorbals, Glasgow.

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

Generally, addiction detox and rehab services, go hand in hand.

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.

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

Rehab is NOT advisable 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.
  • People with no qualms about continuing with their destructive behaviour and not ready to personally pull up their sleeves and help themselves.

How Do I Work Out How Long To Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Addiction Rehab?

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

Here’s an idea of typical treatment options for Gorbals 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

Once the person is finally in the rehab clinic, gaining the necessary insights, and visualising their ability to cope with stimuli and stressful situations without the coping mechanism of alcohol or narcotics, only then will it be easier to determine how long treatment should last.

Someone who feels well-resourced already, may be ready to leave drug or alcohol treatment after 28 days; others may take longer.

How Do I Make Best Use Of My Time, In Drug/Alcohol Rehab Treatment Gorbals?

Care Plan

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 Gorbals that will select and assign one support worker to help you navigate through your stay

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

Take an active role in discussion with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist, following your admission to rehab, when agreeing the detox protocol you'll undergo. 

Open up about past addictions, alcohol intake, and how recently you used.

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 Gorbals clinic.

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.

Aftercare Planning

It is important to evaluate everything you’ve learned from support groups, keywork discussions, and one-on-one sessions. 

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? Are there any mental health triggers that you have uncovered that you weren't aware of before?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Work, From A Statistical Perspective?

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

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

Following pressure from potential clients regarding the long-term outcome of the rehab regimen, many rehab facilities face an uphill task when tracing former clients to gauge whether the programme was successful, in the very long term.

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.

How Much Time Will Ongoing Long-Term Addiction Recovery Take Out Of My Life Each Week?

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.

For others, their weekly calendar will involve some group therapy and a daily meeting with their sponsor.

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

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.

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

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

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

Good 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.


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.

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.

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

#1

Initial Detox

During the initial 4 to 6 days, detox can feel like an uphill task because the mind and body are trying to adapt to the diminished supply of the substance.

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 Negative Social Influences

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

 In some instances, where the social group consists of those in active addiction, such as dealers and other users, this can be a move in a positive direction.

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.

#3

Changing The Mindset

Succeeding in psychologically and emotionally switching from the addictive mental attitude that comprises irresponsible behaviour and dependence, to one of recovery, can be an uphill task.

Nevertheless, the longer one stays in rehab, the easier it becomes.

Your time in rehab can be beneficial if you try to absorb the mindsets of other people in the clinic with you, and embrace some of their outlook.

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

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

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • 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.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A bad initial experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

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

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

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.

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering Down On My Own?

When you choose private rehab services, you will be in an expertly supervised setting that will make the detox process much simpler, including monitoring your withdrawal, progress, and symptoms.

Reducing alcohol use without professional help is a no-no and should not be done.

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.

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. This is a must.

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

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

Essentially, very few clinics can offer refund after you relapse because long-term recovery is the responsibility of the client.

Does this imply that you should shoulder the entire burden? No, it means that you should establish your own areas of  vulnerability in recovery, and seek out appropriate support.

While some facilities provide an extended stay in the event of a relapse, it differs from provider to provider so it pays to make sure.

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

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

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

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

#7

Due to COVID-19, are there any modifications to your policies or care?

#8

I'd like copies of the up-to-date Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

Does you clinic have a policy on issuing refunds?

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For Rehab?

You'll usually complete a telephone assessment, and most providers at this point will request payment of a deposit, in order to hold a room for you, in their facility. 

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.

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.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. This is non-negotiable.

However, a rehab clinic is not a hospital, and does not have the appropriate medical equipment or staffing to deal with issues such as advanced liver decomposition, high risk of seizure, or other complications.

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