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

Maybe we can help you navigate.

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

Let's get started.

Treatment Is More Than Just Withdrawal And Detox

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

Rehab comprises the therapeutic aspects of treatment that deal with the subconscious psychological elements of addictive behaviour and generally takes place following the detox phase.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab is NOT advisable for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • 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.

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

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

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Linthouse and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Common detox of 7 to 10 days for alcohol or drug treatment, without therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • 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.

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 Linthouse, To Get Best Possible Results?

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Make clear your expectations of the whole rehab programme. 

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 Linthouse that will provide you with a personal case manager to help you cope with the process.

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

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. 

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

By presenting the situation as it is, the specialists will be able to place you on an ideal detox plan and it’ll ensure that you have an easier time at the Rehab Linthouse treatment centre.

Therapeutic Time

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

Relapse Prevention

Before committing anything to paper, reflect firstly on the learnings you've gained from support groups, from mutual aid work, from keywork sessions, from one-to-one work. 

In what areas of your recovery process are you particularly vulnerable, and need bolstering, to tolerate the ups and downs of day to day life? 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. What could make this progress a reality? 

More time in therapy? Help from sponsors or recovery stalwarts that you have known for a long time?

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?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

In the long run, rehab success rates can differ, because the client (him)(her)self is responsible for their own long-term recovery process.

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.

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.

How Much Will My Weekly Routine Change, 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.

quotation mark

KEY takeaway

In this case, a different perspective on the original question could help your recovery journey more.

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*.

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

Rather, recovery is a journey of self-assessment, accepting your weaknesses and strengths, plus incorporating support systems that will work for you.

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Good question.

Others have discovered they had to give up a part of themselves that had become enmeshed in an addictive pattern.


It doesn’t imply that we have to put on brave faces and endure lots of emotional baggage to handle the urge to use, rather, we simply evaluate our situation in a controlled setting by learning why we use, and our intentions behind it.

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 Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Linthouse, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Early 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.

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

#2

Releasing Harmful Social Influences

Individuals with deep family connections or friendships may at first have a hard time coping with the loss of connection.

 In some instances, where the social group consists of those in active addiction, such as dealers and other users, this can be a move in a positive direction.

Some people entering the programme may be too attached to support systems such as loved ones and it is recommended to discuss this with the clinical specialists so as to agree on appropriate visit policies for the sake of the client.

#3

Moving Beyond The Mindset Of Addiction

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.

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.

 By doing this for an extended period of time, you will discover that it will add more value to the long-term recovery process.

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

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Taking up a programme of out-patient treatment, while knowing very well that you will face external stressors in your daily life that will impede your progress.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Over-reliance on non-expert sources of assistance.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

Is It Possible To Say In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

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

In essence, to have a smooth journey of recovery, you must be prepared to accept assistance, adhere to advice, be responsible for your actions. And, to accept to embrace the requisite support and help.

How Is Rehab Different To AA?

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

When you choose private rehab services, you will be in an expertly supervised setting that will make the detox process much simpler, including monitoring your withdrawal, progress, and symptoms.

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

Without professional supervision of symptoms, medical emergencies are possible, such as cardiovascular issues, blood pressure changes, risk of seizure, liver complications, etc.

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

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.

Essentially, very few clinics can offer refund after you relapse because long-term recovery is the responsibility of the client.

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.

While some facilities provide an extended stay in the event of a relapse, it differs from provider to provider so it pays to make sure.

Are There Specific Questions I Should Ask, To Find The Right Addiction Rehab That Meets My Needs, Near Linthouse, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

How long should I stay in the clinic?

#3

Can I admit for a shorter duration initially, then extend my stay once in the clinic?

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#7

Due to COVID-19, are there any modifications to your policies or care?

#8

Could you give me a copy of the current inspection and ratings Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate?

#9

Do you have a 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. 

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.

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

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

quotation mark

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. This is mandatory.

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.

But if your problem is not emergency based, you can be admitted within 24 to 48 hours.
