If you're looking for alcohol or drug addiction help near Merchant City, Glasgow - you'll already know how confusing the options can be.

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

Here are the answers to the critical few FAQs you need to know, to help secure alcohol or drug treatment that meets your needs, near Merchant City, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

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

Detox and rehab in addiction care are usually provided as a package.

Rehabilitation refers to the therapeutic part of treatment that work on the hidden psychological aspects of addictive habits, and comes after the initial phase of physical detox.

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

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

This is dependent on your individual needs.

The following treatment options are available near Merchant City 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 - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • 28+ days - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

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.

 

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

Care Plan

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.

It's best to select a Merchant City treatment service that will assign a case manager, to ease your way throughout the programme.

 

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

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. 

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

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.

 

Therapy Time

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

Relapse Prevention

Taking a moment and assessing what kind of gains you have made from the therapy sessions, one-on-one interactions, and support groups, is highly recommended before committing to specifics in your aftercare plan. 

 

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? What triggers have you discovered that need attention, that you weren't aware of before?

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

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

Success rates of rehab, in the long term, will vary, since the individual themselves is responsible for their long-term recovery.

Following pressure from potential clients regarding the long-term outcome of the rehab regimen, many rehab facilities face an uphill task when tracing former clients to gauge whether the programme was successful, in the very long term.

 

Even after receiving superior therapy services from a private rehab, whether or not you will be successful all boils down to your effort.

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 Time Will Ongoing Long-Term Addiction Recovery Take Out Of My Life Each Week?

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.

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

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

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.

Instead, it is a gradual process of personal discovery and evaluation, accepting yourself and being in the company of supportive systems that will make it easier.

 

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

Great 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 working with a cognitive behavioural therapist, you can release old patterns and old ways of doing things, and learn fresh methods instead.

Are There Elements Of Merchant City Addiction Treatment, More Trying Than Others?

#1

Initial Detox

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.

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

#2

Redrawing Social Boundaries

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

 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.

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.

 

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

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Absent support systems from family and friends together with trigger situations and stressors, which become a recipe for disaster.
  • A bad initial experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • Unwillingness to let go of, or break contact with, a previous known trigger for addictive tendencies or behaviour.

 

 

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

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

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?

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.

Weaning off alcohol alone, without expert support, can be life-threatening and is specifically not recommended.

Health issues are likely without clinical monitoring of signs, such as respiratory conditions, increases in blood pressure, risk of epilepsy, liver abnormalities, etc.

 

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

 

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

Consult with the particular rehab you're considering, regarding their refund policy before entering their programme.

It goes without saying that you are ultimately in charge of your long-term recovery process, meaning it will be highly unlikely that you will be refunded should you relapse.

 

Does this mean that you are responsible for all the work? No. In as much you have to put in some work, it is recommended that you look for vulnerabilities in your own recovery and actively ask to be helped.

Other rehab clinics provide an extended stay if there is a relapse but again it is important to inquire first.

 

 

What Should I Ask, When Vetting Treatment Clinics Near Merchant City, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

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

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Does the clinic let the next of kin attend for visits? 

#7

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

#8

Please send me the latest Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

Is there any refund policy I should be aware of?

 

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For 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.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. 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.

 

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.
