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

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

In our guide below, you'll find the right questions to ask an addiction clinic (and the right answers).

Ready? Let's get started:

Is Detox Part Of Rehabilitation?

You can get both rehab and detox services for addiction, in a single 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.

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

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • Drug or alcohol addicted individuals who aren't yet ready to relinquish their denial and irresponsibility, whilst still depending on others to make all the effort.

How Do I Work Out How Long To Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Addiction Rehab?

How long you will be a resident of the rehab centre is influenced by your particular situation.

Here’s an idea of typical treatment options for Lancefield 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.
  • 28+ days - 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.

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.

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

Care Plan

Have realistic expectations regarding your stay in alcohol/drug rehab. 

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.

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

Initial Detox

Be proactive in talking with the consultant psychiatrist or expert after entering rehab and come to an agreement regarding the detox regimen you'll follow. 

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

Keep in mind that you have to give accurate information, as it will be crucial in deciding what kind of detox programme you will be put on.

Therapeutic 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

Reflect first on the experiences you have learned from support groups, from mutual aid work, from keywork workshops, from one-to-one work, before committing something to paper for future supports. 

Where do you feel most helpless in your recovery process, and need enhanced support levels to make it through? Are there any mental health triggers that you have uncovered that you weren't aware of before?

In what ways could you plan to pre-empt these susceptible areas, and move towards their permanent resolution? What could be your next move? 

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.

How Likely Am I To Achieve Long Term Recovery, After 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.

Ultimately, the success of a rehab stay differs from individual to individual because it depends on the mindset of the addict.

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 treatment, to get you on the next step of your journey to healing.

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.

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.

quotation mark

KEY takeaway

However, a little change of perspective could be useful 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*.

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

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Excellent question.

Others before you have almost always found that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was locked in a pattern of addiction, acting out the same coping mechanism to the point of exhaustion.


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.

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 Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Lancefield?

#1

Adjusting To Detox

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.

This is a time to be vocal about your symptoms, with the professionals available, in order to maintain a detox that is both safe and comfortable.

#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.

 In some cases, these are connections with parties detrimental to the recovery process such as other alcohol users or substance dealers. Here the severing of these ties is for the better.

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

Moving From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

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

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

Your time in rehab can be beneficial if you try to absorb the mindsets of other people in the clinic with you, and embrace some of their outlook.

 The longer you spend in treatment, the more you will gain in your recovery journey.

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

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • 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 bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

How Can I Tell If Rehab Will Work For Me, And My History With Drugs Or Alcohol Addiction?

This doesn’t have a precise answer as it depends on the devotion that the client puts in the process, particularly in therapy.

By accepting to be helped, following the directives given, acknowledging that you’re responsible for your own life and seeking the needful resources and support, you will significantly enhance the chances of recovering.

What's The Difference Between Going To Rehab And Tapering 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.

Tapering down alcohol intake independently, without professional assistance, can be extremely dangerous and is expressly *not* recommended.

With no professional input and monitoring of symptoms, the likelihood of health issues like cardiovascular and liver complications, blood pressure issues, seizures, and many more, increases significantly.

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 I Get Treatment Costs Reimbursed If I Relapse After Treatment?

To be on the safe side, check with the clinic re their refund policy before committing.

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 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 Lancefield, Glasgow?

#1

Have you handled many clients with a drug/alcohol intake and case history like my own?

#2

For how long do I need to be treated?

#3

Can I admit for detox-only, then increase my stay once admitted?

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Do you allow visits from family? 

#7

What changes have you made to your programme, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?

#8

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

#9

Is there any refund policy I should be aware of?

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

Following an initial telephone review, you would be required to book a room at the clinic by paying a deposit. 

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.

For Urgent Or Emergency Drug/Alcohol Problems, Does A Rehab Centre Take Care Of That?

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

quotation mark

KEY TAKEAWAY

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

Still, rehab clinics are not hospitals and they are usually not equipped to deal with complicated health issues such as liver problems and seizures.

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.
