If you're looking for alcohol or drug addiction help near Govanhill, Glasgow - you'll already know how confusing the options can be.

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

In the answers below, we showcase the insights needed to find the right help, at the right cost, near Govanhill, Glasgow.

Let's go.

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

Detox and rehab in addiction care are usually provided as a 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.

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • 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.

 

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.

Look at the treatment options near Govanhill and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Ranging from one week to a week and a half, a general detox programme that caters for alcohol or drug addicts but there is usually no therapy included.
  • 14-28 days - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • More than 28 days - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

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.

If an individual feels better after 28 days in the treatment centre, they may depart, but many stay beyond this.

 

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

Care Plan

Be transparent about what you hope to achieve in the rehab centre. 

 

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 Govanhill 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. 

Ensure that you tell it as it as, in relation to previous use, patterns of abuse, alcohol intake, and recent use.

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 Govanhill treatment centre.

 

Therapy Time

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

 

Aftercare Planning

Before committing anything to paper, reflect firstly on the learnings you've gained from support groups, from mutual aid work, from keywork sessions, from one-to-one work. 

How long does it take to detox from alcohol dependence?

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?

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

More than 90% of people in detox successfully complete that part of the programme. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

Ultimately, the success of a rehab stay differs from individual to individual because it depends on the mindset of the addict.

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.

 

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

Rehab is a short-term, primary care intervention in a specialised setting, that can support you in reaching the next steps of your bigger recovery journey.

 

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

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.

In some cases, some clients’ weekly schedules are upheld by everyday check-ins with respective sponsors and some mutual aid sittings every week.

For others, it might be several sessions of therapy, attending secondary specialists for other health issues, and family support, amongst others, before a stable footing is found.

 

quotationmark

KEY takeaway

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

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*.

Being in recovery is a gradual and systematic process as opposed to a few magic steps that provide instant results.

Recovery is an ongoing practice of self-insight, self-acceptance, and surrounding oneself with active supports that can help all this happen.

 

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

Good question.

Others starting out in recovery found out that it was vital to let go of an old part of themselves ingrained in addictive patterns.


This does not mean we have to grin and bear a tremendous amount of emotional stress in order to release the need to drink or misuse substances, but instead seek to understand, in a therapeutic environment, the real reasons we indulge in these behaviours and what we're trying to gain by doing so.

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 Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Govanhill, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Adjusting To Detox

The initial 48-72 hours of detox can be the most trying, physically and emotionally, as the body and mind adjust to reduced substance intake, and detox begins.

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

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

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

 This may be a step in a better direction in some situations, where the client's social community comprises those involved in active addiction, such as dealers and others in active addiction.

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.

 

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

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Not seeking support or assistance when experiencing a trigger situation.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • 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 encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Over-reliance on non-expert sources of assistance.
  • 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?

Even the worst addicts can change, through dedication and determination, especially with commitment to ongoing therapy work.

Broadly speaking, if you are willing to accept help, willing to follow directions, accept that your life is your responsibility, and are prepared to seek out the required resource and support to help you recover, your chances of lasting success can increase.

Are Rehab And Alcoholics Anonymous Different, Really?

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

By admitting to rehab, you will be embracing professionally supervised surroundings for detox and safe withdrawal. Here, you will also get constant feedback on your progress and symptoms.

 

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

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

 

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.

 

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

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

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

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

#1

How experienced are you in detoxing clients with a history like mine?

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#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

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#7

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

#8

Can you send me a copy of your latest Care Quality Commission or Care Inspectorate inspection reports and ratings?

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

 

What Happens When I Select A Rehab Clinic To Admit To?

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

From this point, the provider gets authorisation from their medical staff, and thereafter can normally admit you within a day or two.

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

Important: If there is a severe emergency, it is recommended that you contact local trained medical personnel immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

Keep in mind that rehab clinics are not a substitute for hospitals - they do not have the equipment and experts to handle issues like liver complications and the probability of 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.
