Trying to find the right drug/alcohol treatment near Mount Vernon, Glasgow can begin to feel like your going round in circles.

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

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 Mount Vernon, Glasgow.

Let's get started.

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

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

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

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.
  • People living with addictive behaviour who are not bothered by their life of denial, with no problem about letting other people put in all the work.

What's The Ideal Treatment Length For A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab?

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

The following treatment options are available near Mount Vernon and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular simple stay for preliminary detoxification and several therapy sessions.
  • 28 days and above - 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.

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

What Should I Make A Point Of Doing, During Rehab Mount Vernon?

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Have realistic expectations regarding your stay in alcohol/drug rehab. 

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.

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

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. 

Ensure that you tell it as it as, in relation to previous use, patterns of abuse, alcohol intake, and 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 Mount Vernon treatment centre.

Therapeutic Help

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.

Planning For The Future

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 your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

How Many Succeed In Staying Dry Or Clean, Following Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. 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.

Clients searching for rehab services are increasingly seeking reassurance about the success of the services offered and this has made it hard to keep an eye on *all* former clients for purposes of ongoing evaluation.

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 brief primary care process in supervised surroundings to help you reach the next phase of your recovery plan.

How Much Will My Weekly Routine Change, 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.

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

However, a little change of perspective could be useful 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.

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

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

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

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.


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 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 Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Mount Vernon?

#1

Reactions To Detox

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.

This is when you should never be quiet about any symptoms since it will relevant to help staff facilitate a seamless and safe detox process.

#2

Releasing Negative Social Influences

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

 But when these connections comprise of parties directly involved in drug or alcohol abuse such as sellers and other addicts, cutting links is recommended.

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.

#3

Moving From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

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.

Although this usually becomes easier with longer stay times in rehab.

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.

 If you keep absorbing positive attitudes over time, it will be more profitable for your long-term recovery.

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

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. Not seeking support or assistance when experiencing a trigger situation.
  • 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.
  • Going back to old ways of coping after treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapsing.
  • 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.
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • By being reluctant to get rid of habits that trigger old drug or alcohol habits.

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

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 accept help, willing to follow directions, accept that your life is your responsibility, and are prepared to seek out the required resource and support to help you recover, your chances of lasting success can increase.

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering Down On My Own?

Private rehabilitation provides a well-managed and expertly supervised process for detox and safe withdrawal. In addition, there is professional monitoring of the recovery journey and symptoms at every step.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 Mount Vernon, Glasgow?

#1

What is your track record in dealing with cases similar to mine?

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

Is it possible to enrol for a brief stay, then extend it after I am in the programme?

#7

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

#8

#9

How Do I Get Started With Rehab?

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

Next, the admissions team would ask their personnel for medical permission to admit you and be admitted 24 to 48 hours later.

If I Need Alcohol Or Drug Help Urgently, Who Do I Contact?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

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.

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.
