Hundreds in Kennishead, Glasgow struggle to find the right help for alcohol or drug addiction.

But, help *is* available, if you know what to ask.

If you've struggled to find the right questions to ask, meet our comprehensive guide to finding drug or alcohol addiction help in Kennishead, Glasgow, below.

Let's go.

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

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

Rehab can be described as the therapeutic component of residential treatment and it takes care of the subconscious psychological aspects of addiction.

Detox .v. Rehab In Kennishead, Glasgow

Detox-Only
  • Supervised detox
  • Live in the clinic full-time
  • No therapy component
  • No ongoing help
Full Rehab Programme
  • Supervised detox
  • All treatment under one roof
  • Individual care planning & therapy input
  • Long term support

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • Individuals content to live in denial about their mental health and continued irresponsible behaviour.

What's The Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

This is dependent on your individual needs.

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

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • Over 28 days - Typical stay, incorporating considerable therapy and planning for the future’s aftercare services.

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.

What Should I Make A Point Of Doing, During Rehab Kennishead?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

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

Choose an addiction rehabilitation programme near Kennishead that will select and assign one support worker to help you navigate through your stay

Detox

After admission, take an active part in the conversation with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist before committing to the detox procedure that you will undergo. 

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

Lying is not recommended since the treatment you will get is dependent on your answers.

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 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 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?

More time in therapy? External input from a sponsor near Rehab Kennishead or long-term recovery stalwart?

Are there suitable safety measures you could implement, that fit the day-to-day situations you face in life?

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

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

People in rehab are accountable for their long term recovery, and by extension, their success.

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.

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

Should I Expect To Change A Lot Of My Daily Routine, 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.

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.

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.

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

Recovery is an ongoing practice of self-insight, self-acceptance, and surrounding oneself with active supports that can help all this happen.

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.

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 Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Kennishead Struggle With?

#1

Detox Symptoms

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

Releasing Negative Social Influences

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

 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

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.

Still, after some time in rehab, things get better.

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.

 If you keep absorbing positive attitudes over time, it will be more profitable for your long-term recovery.

What Are The Reasons Some People Fail To Achieve Lasting Recovery From Drug/Alcohol Addiction?

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • Reverting to old patterns after treatment, leading to higher chances of relapsing.
  • 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.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

How Can I Tell In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Is Likely To Help Someone With My Pattern Of Addiction?

Even the worst addicts can change, through dedication and determination, especially with commitment to ongoing therapy work.

When you admit that your life is in your own hands, follow instructions and embrace the resources and support systems necessary to help you in your recovery, odds are, that you will succeed.

How Are AA And Rehab Different?

What's The Difference Between Going To Rehab And Tapering Down On My Own?

Private rehabilitation provides a well-managed and expertly supervised process for detox and safe withdrawal. In addition, there is professional monitoring of the recovery journey and symptoms at every step.

Weaning off alcohol alone, without expert support, can be life-threatening and is specifically 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.

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. This is non-negotiable.

Will We Get A Refund If I/My Loved One Relapses?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

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.

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.

What Are 9 Essential Questions To Ask A Potential Treatment Provider Near Kennishead, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

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

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

Do you allow visits from family? 

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#8

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For Rehab?

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

I/We Need Help Urgently, What Should I/We Do?

Important: In case of a serious health issue, seek medical assistance locally, without delay.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. This is non-negotiable.

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.

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