Asking the right questions to find alcohol or drug help near Hutchesontown, Glasgow can be a minefield.

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 Hutchesontown, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

How Does Rehab For Alcohol/Drug Misuse Differ From A Detox-Only Approach?

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

Rehab refers to the therapeutic elements of a stay in treatment, that tackle the underlying psychological components of addiction, and usually occurs after the initial physical detox stage.

Detox-Only .v. Rehab Treatment In Hutchesontown, Glasgow

  • Includes supervised detox
  • Live in the clinic full-time
  • Not individualised
  • No ongoing help

  • Detox included
  • All treatment under one roof
  • Personalised therapy
  • Long term support

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • 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".

Is A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab Always The Same Length?

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Here’s an idea of typical treatment options for Hutchesontown and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • 28 days and above - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

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.

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

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

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Have a honest approach to what you need to achieve out of rehab treatment. 

Use previous work in detox or rehabilitation to understand what areas need your focus, and the triggers that still need a lot of attention.

It's best to select a Hutchesontown treatment service that will assign a case manager, to ease your way throughout the programme.

Physical Detox

With the help of the consultant psychiatrist or professional at the detox centre, make sure that you’re involved in selecting the most suitable detox regimen. 

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 Hutchesontown clinic.

Therapy 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

Taking a moment and assessing what kind of gains you have made from the therapy sessions, one-on-one interactions, and support groups, is highly recommended before committing to specifics in your aftercare plan. 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

What is your strategy to deal with these vulnerable moments before they happen? In what way could you make this a reality? 

Additional therapy sessions? Help from sponsors or recovery stalwarts that you have known for a long time?

You can come up with resources that are linked to your particular life situation.

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

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

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

In order to measure success metrics, it is now becoming more difficult for recovery centres to stay in contact with former clients over very long periods of time, as most patients are searching for promises regarding very long-term success rates.

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 term, primary care intervention in a specialist environment; to assist you to the next stage of your long term recovery journey.

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.

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

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

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*.

It is wrong to assume that recovery involves some specific secret steps that you go through to achieve a lifetime of sobriety.

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?

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.


This does not mean that we must smile and suffer an enormous amount of mental discomfort to alleviate the urge to drink or misuse medications, but should strive to consider the true reason we engage in these actions and what we are seeking to accomplish 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 Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Hutchesontown Struggle With?

#1

Initial Detox

The first 48 to 72 hours can be traumatic since the mind and body of the person is in the process of adapting to the lessened substance intake.

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

#2

Redrawing Social Boundaries

There are some people with firm connections with loved ones and when they are severed, they end up having a tough time.

 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.

For some individuals who are used to support from family and loved ones, it can be stressful leaving them and getting into the clinic. This is why there should be a discussion with the clinic regarding visits and communication with family.

#3

Emotional Transformation

Making the emotional/psychological transition from the mindset of addiction (dependence, co-dependence, lack of responsibility, chaotic lifestyle) to the mindset of recovery, can be challenging.

Although this usually becomes easier with longer stay times in rehab.

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.

 By doing this for an extended period of time, you will discover that it will add more value to the long-term recovery process.

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

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. 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.
  • Going back to old ways of coping after treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapsing.
  • Chronic lack of family or external support channels combined with recurrent stressor or trigger situations that were not prepared for, or were not anticipated.
  • A bad initial experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. 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?

This is difficult to predict since even the most extreme histories of addiction can be turned around, by someone who is determined, and dedicated enough, especially in the therapy elements of rehab.

If you're willing to stick to instructions, find support systems and accept responsibility for your recovery, you will have an easier journey.

How Is Rehab Different To AA?

Rehab Clinic Treatment
  • Rehab essentially involves services like relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic intervention under one roof, by one provider in a clinically regulated environment.
Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings
  • For a non-clinical and mutual aid background where individuals can freely pour out their hearts regarding their recovery journey, AA is the best place.

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

In private rehab, there is professional feedback on the whole detox programme, safe withdrawal, supervision of progress, all done in regulated surroundings.

Weaning off alcohol alone, without expert support, can be life-threatening and is specifically not recommended.

Without professional supervision of symptoms, medical emergencies are possible, such as cardiovascular issues, blood pressure changes, risk of seizure, liver complications, etc.

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

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive 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.

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.

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

#1

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

#2

How long do I have to take the treatment?

#3

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

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Are the aftercare services part of the final charges?

#6

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

#7

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

#8

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

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

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

After you are through with an initial telephone assessment, the most likely course of action will be to pay an amount to book a room at the clinic. 

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.

If I Need Alcohol Or Drug Help Urgently, Who Do I Contact?

Important: In the event of a serious medical emergency, seeing a local healthcare professional is a must.

KEY TAKEAWAY

You can never substitute rehab for competent medical care. Rehabs commonly offer regular, non-urgent detox solutions, plus therapeutic help.

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.

Still, for any non-emergency detox/rehab services, most clinics can get you a place in a couple of days.
