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

Maybe we can help you navigate.

Below, we've laid out the key need-to-knows, to narrow down the search and find drug or alcohol treatment which meets your needs for cost, location, and getting help fast, in Milton, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

Would I Be Able To Complete Detox Separately From Rehab?

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

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • Those who want to continue the pattern of denial and lack of responsibility, and want someone else to "do it all for them".

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

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

The following treatment options are available near Milton 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.
  • Over 28 days - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

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.

What Elements Of Drug/Alcohol Treatment Milton Do I Focus On, For Lasting Recovery?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

Have a honest approach to what you need to achieve out of rehab treatment. 

By reflecting on previous detox and rehab centres, you can easily identify what areas to concentrate on during treatment, and the triggers that still have power over you and need dealing with.

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

Initial Detox

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 Milton treatment centre.

Therapy 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.

Relapse Prevention

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. 

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? Are there any triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

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

The majority of people seeking a rehab programme need guarantees about extended success rates, and it can be difficult for clinics to track all previous clients, exhaustively.

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-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.

Other client’s weekly diaries will include contact with a sponsor, group therapy, plus several weekly mutual aid discussions.

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

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

We have observed over the years that people who have realised that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*, rather than a process that takes from their lives, tend to enjoy long term success, even over 20-30 years sober.

Being in recovery doesn’t mean that you follow some simple rules and voila!... you beat addiction.

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?

Great 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.


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.

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 3 Most Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Milton, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Early Detox

The first 48 to 72 hours can be traumatic since the mind and body of the person is in the process of adapting to the lessened substance intake.

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

#2

Releasing Harmful Social Influences

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

 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.

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

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.

Despite this, with an extended stay in rehab, people are able to cope more easily.

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 the timeframe you have to do this, the greater the longer-term rewards are likely to be.

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • During recovery, returning to an old habit, coping mechanism, or way of life, raising the risk of a situation leading to relapse.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • 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.
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

Is Rehab Likely To Work For Someone Like Me, With My History Of Usage, And Intake Pattern?

There is no definite answer for this since it takes effort and commitment to break even the toughest addictions, especially where therapy is concerned.

Broadly speaking, if you are willing to receive assistance, willing to follow instructions, accept that your life is your own responsibility, and are willing to pursue the services and care needed to help you heal, your chances of success will improve.

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

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.

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

Do I Get Treatment Costs Reimbursed If I Relapse After Treatment?

Make sure that you understand where the rehab clinic stands regarding refunds.

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.

There are clinics that have an extra stay as part of their services in the event the client relapses.

What Do I Ask, To Make Sure The Clinic I'm Speaking To Near Milton, Glasgow, Is A Good Match?

#1

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

#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

What is your aftercare provision?

#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 service as a result of Covid-19?

#8

Can I get copies of the most up-to-date Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports, plus ratings?

#9

Does you clinic have a policy on issuing refunds?

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 this point, the provider gets authorisation from their medical staff, and thereafter can normally admit you within a day or two.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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