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

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

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 Newlands, Glasgow.

Let's get started.

Detox versus Rehab - What Are The Differences?

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

Rehabilitation refers to the therapeutic part of treatment that work on the hidden psychological aspects of addictive habits, and comes after the initial phase of physical detox.

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

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.
  • 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?

How long you will be a resident of the rehab centre is influenced by your particular situation.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Newlands and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Seven to ten days standard detox where addicts are treated for alcohol or drug addiction, normally without therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • 28+ days - Standard stay that consist of increased therapy sessions and coordinating for aftercare help.

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.

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

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.

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

Physical 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. 

Be open and honest with staff, re previous usage, patterns of use, and recency of use.

Keep in mind that you have to give accurate information, as it will be crucial in deciding what kind of detox programme you will be put on.

Therapy Time

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

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

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 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. 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.

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.

You can get all the support and five-star therapy services in the world but it is all in vain if you do not play your part and adhere to the learning.

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 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.

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

For others, it might be several sessions of therapy, attending secondary specialists for other health issues, and family support, amongst others, before a stable footing is found.

KEY takeaway

Nevertheless, it is essential to change your mindset.

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*.

Recovery is not a series of "secret" steps that you undertake a few times, to be rewarded with long term sobriety.

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

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

Excellent question.

Others have discovered they had to give up a part of themselves that had become enmeshed in an addictive pattern.


This does not mean that we need to smile and suffer an immense amount of mental discomfort to move beyond the need to drink or consume drugs, but instead, we should strive to explore the true motives behind these habits.

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 Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Newlands, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Initial 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

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

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

 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.

Some people entering the programme may be too attached to support systems such as loved ones and it is recommended to discuss this with the clinical specialists so as to agree on appropriate visit policies for the sake of the client.

#3

Moving From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

Succeeding in psychologically and emotionally switching from the addictive mental attitude that comprises irresponsible behaviour and dependence, to one of recovery, can be an uphill task.

But after someone stays a longer period in rehab, it can become less challenging.

It is advisable to view rehab not as a facility that is an end to some means, but as a time for learning from others in recovery with you.

 The longer you spend in treatment, the more you will gain in your recovery journey.

What Are The Reasons Some People Fail To Achieve Lasting Recovery From Drug/Alcohol Addiction?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. 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.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. Over-reliance on non-expert sources of assistance.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

Is It Possible To Say In Advance, 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.

By accepting to be helped, following the directives given, acknowledging that you’re responsible for your own life and seeking the needful resources and support, you will significantly enhance the chances of recovering.

How Is Rehab Different To AA?

Residential Rehab Treatment v Alcoholics Anonymous Newlands
Rehab Treatment
  • Rehab can be thought of as a clinically supervised treatment in residential surroundings that completes the primary care requirements of therapeutic intervention, detox, and prevention of relapse by one provider, under one roof.
AA Meetings
  • AA is a mutual aid and non-clinical environment where people gather to share their experiences and support each other.

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

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.

Reducing alcohol use without professional help is a no-no and should not be done.

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, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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

Check with the individual rehab clinic you've engaged with, *before* entering treatment, about their refund policy.

Generally, it's extremely unlikely they will offer any form of refund for a relapse following treatment, since (brutal truth here) *you* are the only one responsible for your long-term recovery.

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.

Other rehab clinics provide an extended stay if there is a relapse but again it is important to inquire first.

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

#2

For my needs, what treatment length do you suggest?

#3

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#7

#8

Could you give me a copy of the current inspection and ratings Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate?

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

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

In most cases, you will have an over-the-phone evaluation and most probably pay a deposit to get a reservation at the clinic. 

From here, the admissions team will request medical approval for your admission from their staff, and you would normally admit to treatment 24-48 hrs later.

Do Rehab Clinics Deal With Needs For Urgent Help Relating To Alcohol Or Drugs?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

It's vital to consult your regular medical professional before registering for any kind of alcohol treatment. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

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.
