Trying to find the right drug/alcohol treatment near Lambhill, Glasgow can begin to feel like your going round in circles.

Maybe we can help you navigate.

In the answers below, we showcase the insights needed to find the right help, at the right cost, near Lambhill, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

What Are The Differences Between Alcohol/Drug Detox And Rehab?

Generally, addiction detox and rehab services, go hand in hand.

Rehab usually means the therapeutic treatment that addresses the bottled up psychological components of addiction, and takes place after the primary physical detox period.

Detox .v. Rehab In Lambhill, Glasgow

Detox
  • Includes supervised detox
  • Residential care
  • No therapy component
  • No post-detox support
Full Rehab Programme
  • Includes supervised detox
  • Live in the clinic full-time
  • Individualised therapy
  • Long term support

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • Individuals who are hesitant to make sense of their drug/alcohol addiction and stick to the subsequent recommendations provided.
  • People with no qualms about continuing with their destructive behaviour and not ready to personally pull up their sleeves and help themselves.

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

The appropriate duration in  a treatment programme depends on your personal circumstances and history of addiction.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Lambhill 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 - Typical inpatient programme for initial detox and a few therapeutic sessions.
  • More than 28 days - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It might be difficult to measure an ideal treatment duration until the individual is actually in the rehab clinic, gaining the required insights, and visualising their ability to deal with triggers and difficult scenarios without the coping mechanism of alcohol or drugs.

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 Should I Make A Point Of Doing, During Rehab Lambhill?

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

Be forthright and honest in what you expect from the rehab programme. 

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

Try to pick a Lambhill clinic which provides a personally assigned case manager, who works with you personally, throughout the addiction rehabilitation programme.

Initial 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. 

Ensure that you tell it as it as, in relation to previous use, patterns of abuse, alcohol intake, and recent 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 Lambhill clinic.

Therapeutic Help

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

It pays to assess your progress from the support group sessions, therapy, keywork workshops and one-on-one discussions. 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Are there any mental health triggers that you have uncovered that you weren't aware of before?

Get clear on how to overcome the vulnerable moments, and required actions to deal with them for good. In what way could you make this a reality? 

More time in therapy? Support from outwith the programme, especially from a sponsor located near Rehab Lambhill or a previous recovery partner?

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

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. 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.

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 is relative, depending on variables such as how long your recovery journey has been, support structures around you, everyday triggers that you have to contend with, plus the work still to be done regarding the therapeutic gains realised in treatment.

For others, their weekly calendar will involve some group therapy and a daily meeting with their sponsor.

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.

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.

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

Being in recovery means that you should be ready for a perpetual process of personal insight, self-approval, and getting real support backing you up.

What Do I Have To Give Up, To Become Sober?

Great 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.

An expert cognitive behavioural therapist will assist you to get the understanding required to eliminate patterns, not forcefully, but via doing away with old ways of handling the situation and learning new ways.

What Are The Top 3 Most Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Lambhill, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Detox Symptoms

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.

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

#2

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

People who are used to having family near them may briefly wrestle with their absence.

 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 others, where loved ones offer genuine support, this may be difficult, and it can be worth discussing with the admissions team, before entering a clinic, what the family/communication/visit policies are, to help plan ahead of time, and minimise this discomfort.

#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.

What Are The Most Common Reasons For Failure In Recovery Or Alcohol/Drug Rehab?

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • 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. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

How Do I Predict If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

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 Are Alcoholics Anonymous, And Rehab, Different?

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

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.

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. This is mandatory.

What Happens If I/My Loved One Relapses After Leaving Treatment - Do We Get A Refund?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

This is highly unlikely since according to most clinics, the recovery process is largely in the hands of the client.

But this is not an indication that everything is up to you, without help, but that you must pinpoint the areas that you are vulnerable in, and seek support.

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

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

#1

What is your experience level in detoxing someone with my alcohol/drug intake and history?

#2

For how long do I need to be treated?

#3

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

#4

Please elaborate on options for relapse prevention?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

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

#7

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

#8

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

#9

What is your refund policy?

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

You'll usually complete a telephone assessment, and most providers at this point will request payment of a deposit, in order to hold a room for you, in their facility. 

After the provider has gotten consent for admission from the medical team, they can proceed to admit you to the facility; a process that usually takes 1-2 days.

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

Important: in the event of serious emergency, you must contact your local emergency department and access qualified medical care immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

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.

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