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

Maybe we can be your guide.

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 Hillhead, Glasgow.

Ready? Let's get started:

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

It is possible to receive rehabilitation and detox services  for addiction, all at once.

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

Detox-Only Treatment
  • Professional detox
  • Residential care
  • No therapy input
  • No ongoing help
Rehab

  • Live in the clinic full-time
  • Individualised therapy
  • Ongoing help

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Detoxers who routinely fall off the wagon, and have an alcohol/drug pattern they perpetually deny.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • Those who want to continue the pattern of denial and lack of responsibility, and want someone else to "do it all for them".

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

The time you will spend in a rehab centre is based on your individual case.

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Hillhead and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - A week to ten days - regular detox - alcohol or drug treatment stay, usually minus therapy
  • 14-28 days - Typical inpatient programme for initial detox and a few therapeutic sessions.
  • 28 days and above - Standard stay that consist of increased therapy sessions and coordinating for aftercare help.

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.

After twenty eight days have passed, if a person is in a better state, they can leave the treatment centre. Still, others can stay on if the rehab is not yet complete.

 

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

Make clear your expectations of the whole 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.

Do your best to find an addiction treatment programme near Hillhead which has a specialist assigned to you personally, as long as you are there.

 

Initial Detox

Don't shy away from talking honestly with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist  assigned to you, regarding the detox regimen with the best chance of working. 

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

Keep in mind that you have to give accurate information, as it will be crucial in deciding what kind of detox programme you will be put on.

 

Therapy Time

It is true that people have particular addictive trends that rule over their lives. This is why it is advisable to concentrate on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling sessions to get some psychological wins.

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

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

 

In your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 90%+. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

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

 

The short answer here is that success is down to you - a rehab clinic can provide the best therapy and support in the world - but if you take no action or pay no attention, success will be lacking.

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 depends on a number of issues, including the duration of your recovery process, the number of supports, everyday triggers you experience at present, and the remaining work from therapeutic benefits gotten in treatment.

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

For other to find a firm footing, they will have to attend group therapy several times a week, see professional health practitioners to deal with other complications, gets tons of support from people around them and attend mutual aid sessions.

KEY takeaway

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

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.

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

Rather, recovery is a journey of self-assessment, accepting your weaknesses and strengths, plus incorporating support systems that will work for you.

 

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Great 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 imply that we have to put on brave faces and endure lots of emotional baggage to handle the urge to use, rather, we simply evaluate our situation in a controlled setting by learning why we use, and our intentions behind it.

A skilled mental health therapist can help you gain the insight needed to release a pattern, not through sheer force, but by understanding, and releasing an old way of achieving something and tackling the issue in a new way, for the first time.

What Are The Top 3 Most Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Hillhead, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Reactions 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

People who are used to having family near them may briefly wrestle with their absence.

 At times, we find that these connections are with drug dealers and addicts and when separation happens, it is a step in the right direction.

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.

 

What Patterns Tend To Result In Failed Attempts At Recovery, That I Should Avoid?

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • During recovery, returning to an old habit, coping mechanism, or way of life, raising the risk of a situation leading to relapse.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • A poor first experience in treatment/rehab/mutual aid with one particular source, which later leads to a (mistaken) long term belief that "treatment/rehab doesn't work."
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

 

 

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

This doesn’t have a precise answer as it depends on the devotion that the client puts in the process, particularly in therapy.

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.

 

How Is Rehab Different To AA?

Can't I Just Taper Down On My Own? Why Do I Need Alcohol Or Drug Rehab?

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.

 

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.

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

 

What Happens If I/My Loved One Relapses After Leaving Treatment - Do We Get A Refund?

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

It goes without saying that you are ultimately in charge of your long-term recovery process, meaning it will be highly unlikely that you will be refunded should you relapse.

 

This is not to say that you have to carry all the effort personally, but that it is vital to establish your weak points in recovery, and request help where needed, along the way.

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 Hillhead, 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

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

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

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

#7

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

#8

Could you give me a copy of the current inspection and ratings Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate?

#9

Is there any refund policy I should be aware of?

 

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

After first conducting a telephone questionnaire, most facilities would request you to pay a deposit to reserve a room at the clinic. 

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

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