Hundreds in Mosspark, Glasgow struggle to find the right help for alcohol or drug addiction.

Maybe we can help you navigate.

Get ready, and take notes from our top answers below, to finding the right addiction treatment near Mosspark, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

It is possible to receive rehabilitation and detox services  for addiction, all at once.

Rehab can be described as the therapeutic component of residential treatment and it takes care of the subconscious psychological aspects of addiction.

Detox .v. Rehab In Mosspark, Glasgow

Detox-Only Treatment
  • Professional detox
  • Residential care
  • No therapy component
  • No post-detox support
Full Rehab Programme
  • Professional detox
  • Live in the clinic full-time
  • Individual care planning & therapy input
  • Aftercare planning provided

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab should probably be avoided 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.
  • Individuals content to live in denial about their mental health and continued irresponsible behaviour.

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

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Look at the treatment options near Mosspark and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • More than 28 days - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It might be difficult to measure an ideal treatment duration until the individual is actually in the rehab clinic, gaining the required insights, and visualising their ability to deal with triggers and difficult scenarios without the coping mechanism of alcohol or drugs.

If an individual feels better after 28 days in the treatment centre, they may depart, but many stay beyond this.

How Do I Make Best Use Of My Time, In Drug/Alcohol Rehab Treatment Mosspark?

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

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

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.

Life will be much easier if you pick a rehab clinic in Mosspark that will provide you with a personal case manager to help you cope with the process.

Detox

Take an active role in discussion with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist, following your admission to rehab, when agreeing the detox protocol you'll undergo. 

It is in your best interest to speak the truth about patterns of drug and alcohol intake, former periods of use, and the most recent 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 Mosspark treatment centre.

Therapy Insights

It is true that people have particular addictive trends that rule over their lives. This is why it is advisable to concentrate on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling sessions to get some psychological wins.

Planning For The Future

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 your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Are there any mental health triggers that you have uncovered that you weren't aware of before?

What is your strategy to deal with these vulnerable moments before they happen? In what way could you make this a reality? 

More therapy time? Outside assistance from a sponsor in Rehab Mosspark or long-term recovery supporter?

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?

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. Those who begin detox in a supervised treatment centre are highly likely to finish.

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.

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 term, primary care intervention in a specialist environment; to assist you to the next stage of your long term recovery journey.

Would Recovery Activities Take A Lot Of Time Out Of My Life, In An Average Week, After Rehab?

This is dependent on a number of factors such as the point you are at in your journey of recovery, your existing supports, daily triggers you have to deal with, plus the remaining benefits from the therapeutic work during treatment.

As part of their weekly timetable, some clients will have to have an everyday check-in with designated sponsors, group therapy, and several mutual aid sessions or calls 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

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.

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

What Aspects Of Life Need To Change, Dramatically, So That I Can Become Sober?

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 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.

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 Mosspark, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#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.

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 Negative Social Influences

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

 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 others, where loved ones offer genuine support, this may be difficult, and it can be worth discussing with the admissions team, before entering a clinic, what the family/communication/visit policies are, to help plan ahead of time, and minimise this discomfort.

#3

Changing The Mindset

The emotional and psychological transformation to an attitude of recovery from one of addictive behaviours such as carelessness, dependence and co-dependence, is not easy, for most people.

Nevertheless, the longer one stays in rehab, the easier it becomes.

Rehab shouldn’t be thought of as just a centre to handle some emotional issues but also as an experience where you can learn from other people facing the same addictions as you.

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

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

  • 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.
  • Reverting to old patterns after treatment, leading to higher chances of relapsing.
  • Absent support systems from family and friends together with trigger situations and stressors, which become a recipe for disaster.
  • A poor first experience in treatment/rehab/mutual aid with one particular source, which later leads to a (mistaken) long term belief that "treatment/rehab doesn't work."
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

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

This is difficult to predict since even the most extreme histories of addiction can be turned around, by someone who is determined, and dedicated enough, especially in the therapy elements of rehab.

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.

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.

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.

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

This is highly unlikely since according to most clinics, the recovery process is largely in the hands 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.

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

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

#1

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

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

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

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Are the aftercare services part of the final charges?

#6

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

#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

What is your policy on refunds?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

Keep in mind that rehab clinics are not a substitute for hospitals - they do not have the equipment and experts to handle issues like liver complications and the probability of seizures.

Nevertheless, if you have non-emergency need for detox and/or rehab, most standard rehab clinics can admit in 24-48 hours.
