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

Maybe we can help you navigate.

Get ready, and take notes from our top answers below, to finding the right addiction treatment near Hyndland, Glasgow.

Let's get started.

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.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • Individuals content to live in denial about their mental health and continued irresponsible behaviour.

 

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

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Hyndland 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 - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and 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

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.

Someone who feels well-resourced already, may be ready to leave drug or alcohol treatment after 28 days; others may take longer.

 

How Do I Make Best Use Of My Time, In Drug/Alcohol Rehab Treatment Hyndland?

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

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

 

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 Hyndland clinic which provides a personally assigned case manager, who works with you personally, throughout the addiction rehabilitation programme.

 

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

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. 

Be open and honest with staff, re previous usage, patterns of use, and recency of use.

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 Hyndland clinic.

 

Therapeutic Time

Use the sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy in the rehab facility wisely, since it is where psychological gains are made.

Planning For The Future

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. 

 

Where do you feel most helpless in your recovery process, and need enhanced support levels to make it through? What triggers have you discovered that need attention, that you weren't aware of before?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 90%+. By staying in a secure environment, people are more inclined to finish the detox programme.

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.

 

You can get all the support and five-star therapy services in the world but it is all in vain if you do not play your part and adhere to the learning.

Rehab is a brief primary care process in supervised surroundings to help you reach the next phase of your recovery plan.

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.

For some, their weekly timetable will be maintained by a daily check-in with their sponsor and a few mutual aid meetings per week.

 

Some clients will find it hard to be stable unless they complete group therapy several times per week, community meetings, consulting experts for unrelated health issues, plus getting lots of family support.

KEY takeaway

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

From what we have observed, clients with lasting success are those who have acknowledged that it is not about how long recovery work takes, but instead 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.

Instead, it is a gradual process of personal discovery and evaluation, accepting yourself and being in the company of supportive systems that will make it easier.

 

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.


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 Are The Top Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Hyndland Struggle With?

#1

Early Detox Symptoms

In the first 4-6 days of detox, it can be a difficult time, both emotionally and physically since the mind and body are attempting to cope with the decreased intake of the substance.

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

#2

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

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.

But in cases where the connections, for instance, loved ones provide real support, it is advisable to sit down with the admissions crew and plan for supervised visits to make the person’s experience less traumatising.

 

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

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. 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 long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • Maybe someone had a miserable time during their first rehab, mutual aid, or treatment stint, and this experience led them to believe that rehab/treatment is not worth it.
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Over-reliance on non-expert sources of assistance.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

 

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

This can't be predicted easily since even the worst addictive habits can be broken by being steadfast in following the process, specifically the therapy regimen.

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.

 

What Are The Differences Between AA And Rehab?

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

Private rehab offers a supervised and professionally controlled environment to complete detox and withdrawal safely, with expert supervision, and feedback on symptoms and progress throughout.

 

Decreasing your alcohol intake on your own can be dangerous; always seek professional help.

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.

 

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

 

Do I Get Treatment Costs Reimbursed If I Relapse After Treatment?

Check with the individual rehab clinic you've engaged with, *before* entering treatment, about their refund policy.

Generally, it's extremely unlikely they will offer any form of refund for a relapse following treatment, since (brutal truth here) *you* are the only one responsible for your long-term 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.

Some rehab facilities include an extension, should a client relapse, but to be on the safe side, it is better to confirm.

 

 

What Do I Ask, To Make Sure The Clinic I'm Speaking To Near Hyndland, Glasgow, Is A Good Match?

#1

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

#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

Please elaborate on options for relapse prevention?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

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

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#8

I'd like copies of the up-to-date Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

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

In most cases, you will have an over-the-phone evaluation and most probably pay a deposit to get a reservation 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: When a medical emergency occurs, you are advised to seek local medical assistance urgently.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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.

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.

 

Nevertheless, if you have non-emergency need for detox and/or rehab, most standard rehab clinics can admit in 24-48 hours.
