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

Maybe we can help you navigate.

In the answers below, we showcase the insights needed to find the right help, at the right cost, near Muirend, Glasgow.

Let's go.

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

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

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

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.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • Individuals content to live in denial about their mental health and continued irresponsible behaviour.

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.

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Muirend 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 - 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.

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

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

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

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

Use previous work in detox or rehabilitation to understand what areas need your focus, and the triggers that still need a lot of attention.

Choose an addiction rehabilitation programme near Muirend that will select and assign one support worker to help you navigate through your stay

Initial 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 in your best interest to speak the truth about patterns of drug and alcohol intake, former periods of use, and the most recent use.

Giving false answers, due to pride, is not a good idea at this stage, since your answers to questions will help determine the specific detox you receive, and hence your comfort and safety, in the Rehab Muirend clinic.

Therapeutic Help

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

Relapse Prevention

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

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%. Those who begin detox in a supervised treatment centre are highly likely to finish.

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

In order to measure success metrics, it is now becoming more difficult for recovery centres to stay in contact with former clients over very long periods of time, as most patients are searching for promises regarding very long-term success rates.

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 short-term, primary care intervention in a specialised setting, that can support you in reaching the next steps of your bigger recovery journey.

After Addiction Rehab, Does Recovery Take Up A Lot Of Time?

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.

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

Others will only reach a stable point after several weekly therapy sessions, consulting different specialists for different health problems, support from loved ones and mutual aid sessions or calls.

KEY TAKEAWAY

In this case, a different perspective on the original question could help your recovery journey more.

From what we have observed, clients with lasting success are those who have acknowledged that it is not about how long recovery work takes, but instead that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

Being in recovery is a gradual and systematic process as opposed to a few magic steps that provide instant results.

Recovery is an ongoing practice of self-insight, self-acceptance, and surrounding oneself with active supports that can help all this happen.

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

Great question.

Others have almost all discovered that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was trapped in a cycle of addiction, carrying out the same coping mechanism in order to feel a little brief satisfaction, but with great long-term repercussions.


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.

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.

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

#1

Early Detox

In the first 4-6 days of detox, it can be a difficult time, both emotionally and physically since the mind and body are attempting to cope with the decreased intake 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

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

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

 At times, we find that these connections are with drug dealers and addicts and when separation happens, it is a step in the right direction.

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

Emotional Transformation

Transitioning both emotionally and psychologically from the addictive mindset which involves chaos, dependence and co-dependence can prove difficult.

Still, after some time in rehab, things get better.

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.

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

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. 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 long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • 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 specialist and non-specialist help and support. 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 Rehab Likely To Work For Someone Like Me, With My History Of Usage, And Intake Pattern?

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 Tapering Down On My Own?

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.

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. This is mandatory.

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

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

To be realistic, not many clinics will refund you following a relapse, given that you are personally responsible for your own recovery.

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.

While some facilities provide an extended stay in the event of a relapse, it differs from provider to provider so it pays to make sure.

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

#1

What is your experience level in detoxing someone with my alcohol/drug intake and history?

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

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

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#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?

Is There An Admission Process To Get Booked In To 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. 

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.

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

You can never substitute rehab for competent medical care. Rehab clinics offer standard detox services followed by therapeutic intervention.

Still, rehab clinics are not hospitals and they are usually not equipped to deal with complicated health issues such as liver problems 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.
