What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

Rehab is not the best choice for those listed below:

  • 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".

How Long Should A Stay In Alcohol/Drug Rehab Treatment Last?

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

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Kennishead 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 - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • Over 28 days - Standard stay that consist of increased therapy sessions and coordinating for aftercare help.

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.

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

Care Plan

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

From past detox and rehab experiences, try to come up with a deliberate approach in your care plan, that overcomes previous setbacks and deals with emotional triggers.

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

Detox

With the consultant psychiatrist or specialist at the rehab centre at your side, take part in discussing the most ideal detoxification path for your issue. 

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

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 Kennishead clinic.

Therapeutic 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.

Aftercare Planning

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

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?

How Many Succeed In Staying Dry Or Clean, Following Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment?

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 90%+. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

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.

Simply put, to succeed in staying sober after you have been through a private rehab, will greatly depend on your will to succeed and follow the teachings.

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.

Should I Expect To Change A Lot Of My Daily Routine, After Drug/Alcohol Rehab?

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.

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

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 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*.

Recovery is not a series of "secret" steps that you undertake a few times, to be rewarded with long term 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?

Excellent question.

For others who have experienced the same scenario, in most cases, they have come to terms with letting go of a part of them that was locked up in a cycle of addiction.


This does not mean we have to grin and bear a tremendous amount of emotional stress in order to release the need to drink or misuse substances, but instead seek to understand, in a therapeutic environment, the real reasons we indulge in these behaviours and what we're trying to gain by doing so.

By getting rid of old mindsets and embracing new ones, an accomplished cognitive behavioural therapist can assist you to learn what is needed to get eliminate patterns that fuel your habits but not through brute force.

What Are The Top 3 Most Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Kennishead?

#1

Early Detox Symptoms

Detox can be challenging in the first four to six days as the mental and physical systems are trying to come to terms with limited substance intake.

This is when you should never be quiet about any symptoms since it will relevant to help staff facilitate a seamless and safe detox process.

#2

Releasing Harmful Social Influences

Clients with established links with loved ones or friends may at first find it challenging when they are cut off.

 This may be a step in a better direction in some situations, where the client's social community comprises those involved in active addiction, such as dealers and others in active addiction.

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.

#3

Emotional Transformation

Transitioning both emotionally and psychologically from the addictive mindset which involves chaos, dependence and co-dependence can prove difficult.

But after someone stays a longer period in rehab, it can become less challenging.

While in rehab, try to see it as a time to absorb the approach, and mental thinking style, of other people on the same path to recovery.

 As you do this for a long period, you will realise that the long-term gains can be spectacular.

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

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • Returning to long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • 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 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."
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • 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?

There is no definite answer for this since it takes effort and commitment to break even the toughest addictions, especially where therapy is concerned.

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

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.

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, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

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.

There are clinics that have an extra stay as part of their services in the event the client relapses.

What 9 Questions Should I Ask Any Alcohol/Drug Rehab Clinic I'm Considering Near Kennishead, 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

Can I join your programme for a short stay at first and then add additional days later?

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

Is it possible to have close relatives visit me in the clinic? 

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#8

Can you send me a copy of your latest Care Quality Commission or Care Inspectorate inspection reports and ratings?

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For 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. 

Next, the admissions team would ask their personnel for medical permission to admit you and be admitted 24 to 48 hours later.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehabilitation can never take the place of professional emergency care. Rehab only caters for common detox needs and therapeutic care.

Nevertheless, do not confuse a rehab centre with a hospital as it doesn’t have the equipment or personnel to handle advanced medical issues like liver decomposition, seizures and other problems.

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.
