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 Hillington, Glasgow.

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

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

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

Rehab is not the best choice for those listed below:

  • 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.
  • 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 Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

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

The following treatment options are available near Hillington 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 - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • 28 days and above - Standard stay that consist of increased therapy sessions and coordinating for aftercare help.

KEY TAKEAWAY

As long as the individual is not yet in the rehab clinic, it will be hard to estimate the duration of treatment. Why is this? Because it's only during treatment that we can evaluate reactions to triggers minus the presence of drugs and 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.

What Elements Of Drug/Alcohol Treatment Hillington 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.

Life will be much easier if you pick a rehab clinic in Hillington that will provide you with a personal case manager to help you cope with the process.

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

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. 

It is in your best interest to speak the truth about patterns of drug and alcohol intake, former periods of use, and the most recent use.

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 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

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. 

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 Work, From A Statistical Perspective?

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 90%+. 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.

It also becomes increasingly difficult for rehab clinics to keep in touch with former clients, over very long time periods, in order to track success or efficiency rates.

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

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 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.

As part of their weekly timetable, some clients will have to have an everyday check-in with designated sponsors, group therapy, and several mutual aid sessions or calls per week.

Others will only reach a stable point after several weekly therapy sessions, consulting different specialists for different health problems, support from loved ones and mutual aid sessions or calls.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

Clients who have welcomed the idea that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*, progress far better than those who view it as a burden that takes from their lives.

Being in recovery doesn’t mean that you follow some simple rules and voila!... you beat addiction.

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

What Aspects Of Life Need To Change, Dramatically, So That I Can Become Sober?

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.


This does not mean that we need to smile and suffer an immense amount of mental discomfort to move beyond the need to drink or consume drugs, but instead, we should strive to explore the true motives behind these habits.

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 Hillington, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#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.

In this phase, inform the specialists about your symptoms to ensure that the detox is suitably safe for you.

#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.

 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.

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

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.

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

Think of rehab itself as not just a place and time to achieve certain outcomes, but also a time to absorb the attitudes, and mindsets, of recovery, from those around you, on the same journey.

 The longer you spend in treatment, the more you will gain in your recovery journey.

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • During recovery, returning to an old habit, coping mechanism, or way of life, raising the risk of a situation leading to relapse.
  • 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.
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

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 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.

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.

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. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

To be realistic, not many clinics will refund you following a relapse, given that you are personally responsible for your own recovery.

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.

Other rehab clinics provide an extended stay if there is a relapse but again it is important to inquire first.

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

#1

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

#2

How long should I stay in the clinic?

#3

Can I admit for a shorter duration initially, then extend my stay once in the clinic?

#4

Please elaborate on options for relapse prevention?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#8

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

#9

What is your refund policy?

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

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.

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

Important: When a medical emergency occurs, you are advised to seek local medical assistance urgently.

KEY TAKEAWAY

You can never substitute rehab for competent medical care. A rehab clinic can deal with routine requirements for detox, and therapeutic intervention thereafter.

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 you are facing non-emergency detox requirements, you can get admission in one to two days.
