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

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

Here are the answers to the critical few FAQs you need to know, to help secure alcohol or drug treatment that meets your needs, near Hamiltonhill, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

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

Rehab usually means the therapeutic treatment that addresses the bottled up psychological components of addiction, and takes place after the primary physical detox period.

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • People with no qualms about continuing with their destructive behaviour and not ready to personally pull up their sleeves and help themselves.

What's The Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

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

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

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.

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.

What Elements Of Drug/Alcohol Treatment Hamiltonhill Do I Focus On, For Lasting Recovery?

Care Plan

Be forthright and honest in what you expect from the rehab programme. 

Think back to past detoxes or rehabilitation centres to learn what areas should be dealt with in treatment and how to deal with triggers to alcohol or drug use.

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

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. 

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 Hamiltonhill treatment centre.

Therapeutic Time

Try to take maximum advantage of the time you have in therapy, e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, and counselling work, as this is where the main psychological breakthroughs can be made, as addiction affects you personally, and your personal pattern of addiction expresses itself in your life.

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

You should not commit to an aftercare plan without first reflecting on all the wins you have garnered from all the sessions you have been involved in while in rehab. 

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? 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?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. 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.

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.

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.

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

This will differ from individual to individual but the common issues include how long the recovery process has taken, the supports in your life, daily triggers in your life at the moment, and the work still to be done in relation to the therapeutic steps during treatment, among 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.

KEY takeaway

Still, it doesn’t hurt to rethink your perspective on this question.

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.

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

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Excellent question.

Others before you have almost always found that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was locked in a pattern of addiction, acting out the same coping mechanism to the point of exhaustion.


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 Parts Of Rehab Treatment Near Hamiltonhill Should I Expect To Be The Most Trying?

#1

Initial 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

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

 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.

For others, where loved ones offer genuine support, this may be difficult, and it can be worth discussing with the admissions team, before entering a clinic, what the family/communication/visit policies are, to help plan ahead of time, and minimise this discomfort.

#3

Emotional Transformation

The emotional and psychological transformation to an attitude of recovery from one of addictive behaviours such as carelessness, dependence and co-dependence, is not easy, for most people.

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

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.

 If you keep absorbing positive attitudes over time, it will be more profitable for your long-term recovery.

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

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. 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.
  • 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. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

Is It Possible To Say In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

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

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.

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

Private rehabilitation provides a well-managed and expertly supervised process for detox and safe withdrawal. In addition, there is professional monitoring of the recovery journey and symptoms at every step.

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

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

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

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.

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.

Some clinics offer an additional stay if relapse occurs, but again, this varies, check with the prospective provider you're speaking with.

What Are 9 Essential Questions To Ask A Potential Treatment Provider Near Hamiltonhill, Glasgow?

#1

What is your track record in dealing with cases similar to mine?

#2

For my needs, what treatment length do you suggest?

#3

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

#7

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

#8

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

#9

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
