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

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

If you've struggled to find the right questions to ask, meet our comprehensive guide to finding drug or alcohol addiction help in Milton, Glasgow, below.

Let's begin:

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

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

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.

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

Detox-Only Treatment
  • Includes supervised detox
  • Live in the clinic full-time
  • No individual therapy elements
  • No aftercare provided
Rehab
  • Detox included
  • Live in the clinic full-time
  • Individual care planning & therapy input
  • Ongoing help

 

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • Those who want to continue the pattern of denial and lack of responsibility, and want someone else to "do it all for them".

 

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.

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.
  • More than 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.

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.

 

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

Use the learnings you've had from experience of previous detoxes, or even previous rehab treatment, to help inform what you should tackle in treatment, where the focus should be, what triggers need underlying or additional work.

Do your best to find an addiction treatment programme near Milton which has a specialist assigned to you personally, as long as you are there.

 

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.

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 Insights

Focus on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling you receive since they can help you make tremendous headway into addictive patterns.

 

Relapse Prevention

It is important to evaluate everything you’ve learned from support groups, keywork discussions, and one-on-one sessions. 

 

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?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

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

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.

 

The short answer here is that success is down to you - a rehab clinic can provide the best therapy and support in the world - but if you take no action or pay no attention, success will be lacking.

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 will vary depending on (e.g.) how far along your recovery journey you are; how many supports you have around you; how many day-to-day triggers you typically experience in your life right now; how much left over work you had from the therapeutic gains made in treatment; and many others.

For some, their weekly timetable will be maintained by a daily check-in with their sponsor and a few mutual aid meetings per week.

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.

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.

Recovery isn’t a one-time process that you go through, and end up being sober for the rest of your life.

Recovery is a continuous exercise that involves a lot of introspection, self-acceptance and having a supportive network around you.

 

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Excellent 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.


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.

Using a cognitive behavioural therapist comes with lots of benefits, for instance, you can get the understanding required to learn new strategies and release old ones.

What Are The Top 3 Most Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Milton?

#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.

During this time, make sure that the specialist handling your case knows about any kind of symptoms you may be experiencing to ensure an appropriate and painless detox process.

#2

Redrawing Social Boundaries

Clients with established links with loved ones or friends may at first find it challenging when they are cut off.

 But when these groups with strong ties to the client include active users and dealers, it is in the best interest of the client to sever them.

For some individuals who are used to support from family and loved ones, it can be stressful leaving them and getting into the clinic. This is why there should be a discussion with the clinic regarding visits and communication with family.

 

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to 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.
  • A bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • The wrong balance between professional and non-professional help and intervention. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

 

 

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

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.

 

How Is Rehab Different To AA?

Rehab .v. Alcoholics Anonymous Milton
Residential Rehab
  • Rehab is a clinically managed environment providing for primary care services under one roof and offered by one provider. Such needs include relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic services.
Alcoholics Anonymous
  • AA is a non-clinical, mutual aid setting, where individuals come together in community-based meetings, to share their collective journeys, in the hope of helping others, and themselves.

Can't I Just Taper Down On My Own? Why Do I Need Alcohol Or Drug Rehab?

By admitting to rehab, you will be embracing professionally supervised surroundings for detox and safe withdrawal. Here, you will also get constant feedback on your progress and symptoms.

 

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

When professional management of symptoms is absent, there can be health complications such as seizures, heart issues, liver problems, fluctuations in blood pressure, among others.

 

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.

 

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

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.

 

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

#1

Are you experienced in dealing with clients in the same situation as mine, regarding detox and intake levels?

#2

What treatment duration do you suggest for my needs?

#3

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

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

Do you allow visits from family? 

#7

What changes have you made to your service as a result of Covid-19?

#8

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

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

Is There An Admission Process To Get Booked In To Rehab?

After first conducting a telephone questionnaire, most facilities would request you to pay a deposit to reserve a room at the clinic. 

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: When a medical emergency occurs, you are advised to seek local medical assistance urgently.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It's vital to consult your regular medical professional before registering for any kind of alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

Nevertheless, do not confuse a rehab centre with a hospital as it doesn’t have the equipment or personnel to handle advanced medical issues like liver decomposition, seizures and other problems.

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.
