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 Newlands, Glasgow.

Ready? Let's get started:

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

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.

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • Individuals addicted to drugs or alcohol who are not yet ready to stop using.

How Long Should A Stay In Alcohol/Drug Rehab Treatment Last?

This is dependent on your individual needs.

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

  • 7-10 days - Ranging from one week to a week and a half, a general detox programme that caters for alcohol or drug addicts but there is usually no therapy included.
  • 14-28 days - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • 28 days and above - Typical stay, incorporating considerable therapy and planning for the future’s aftercare services.

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.

People who feel there have been positive results can leave the treatment centre after 28 days but if there is still some way to go, they can extend their stay.

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

Think back to past detoxes or rehabilitation centres to learn what areas should be dealt with in treatment and how to deal with triggers to alcohol or drug use.

Try to pick a Newlands clinic which provides a personally assigned case manager, who works with you personally, throughout the addiction rehabilitation programme.

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. 

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

Lying is not recommended since the treatment you will get is dependent on your answers.

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.

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 particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Are there any triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

In what ways could you plan to pre-empt these susceptible areas, and move towards their permanent resolution? What would you require to do that? 

Increased therapy hours? Help from sponsors or recovery stalwarts that you have known for a long time?

What other additional resources could you come up with, mapped to the context and situations of *your* life, personally?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. By staying in a secure environment, people are more inclined to finish the detox programme.

In the long run, how a person fares in rehab is directly proportional to the effort they put in to the process.

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.

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.

Should I Expect To Change A Lot Of My Daily Routine, After Drug/Alcohol Rehab?

This depends on a number of issues, including the duration of your recovery process, the number of supports, everyday triggers you experience at present, and the remaining work from therapeutic benefits gotten in treatment.

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.

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*.

Being in recovery doesn’t mean that you follow some simple rules and voila!... you beat addiction.

Being in recovery means that you should be ready for a perpetual process of personal insight, self-approval, and getting real support backing you up.

What Aspects Of My Current Lifestyle, Do I Need To Say Goodbye To, To Become Sober?

Good 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.

An expert cognitive behavioural therapist will assist you to get the understanding required to eliminate patterns, not forcefully, but via doing away with old ways of handling the situation and learning new ways.

What Are The Top 3 Most Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Newlands, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Reactions To 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.

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

Releasing Negative Social Influences

There are some people with firm connections with loved ones and when they are severed, they end up having a tough time.

 In some instances, where the social group consists of those in active addiction, such as dealers and other users, this can be a move in a positive direction.

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

Making the emotional/psychological transition from the mindset of addiction (dependence, co-dependence, lack of responsibility, chaotic lifestyle) to the mindset of recovery, can be challenging.

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.

 By doing this for an extended period of time, you will discover that it will add more value to the long-term recovery process.

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

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • 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 experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • By being reluctant to get rid of habits that trigger old drug or alcohol habits.

How Can I Tell If Rehab Will Work For Me, And My History With Drugs Or Alcohol Addiction?

This doesn’t have a precise answer as it depends on the devotion that the client puts in the process, particularly in therapy.

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 Are Alcoholics Anonymous, And Rehab, Different?

Residential Rehab Treatment v Alcoholics Anonymous Newlands
Rehab
  • Rehab essentially involves services like relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic intervention under one roof, by one provider in a clinically regulated environment.

  • Do you need non-clinical and mutual aid surroundings where people share their life journey and encourage others? If yes, then head to AA.

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

In private rehab, there is professional feedback on the whole detox programme, safe withdrawal, supervision of progress, all done in regulated surroundings.

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

Health issues are likely without clinical monitoring of signs, such as respiratory conditions, increases in blood pressure, risk of epilepsy, liver abnormalities, etc.

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?

To be on the safe side, check with the clinic re their refund policy before committing.

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

Some clinics offer an additional stay if relapse occurs, but again, this varies, check with the prospective provider you're speaking with.

What Are 9 Essential Questions To Ask A Potential Treatment Provider Near Newlands, 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 a shorter duration initially, then extend my stay once in the clinic?

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#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

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

#9

Does you clinic have a policy on issuing refunds?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

After you are through with an initial telephone assessment, the most likely course of action will be to pay an amount to book a room 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.

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

Important: In the event of a serious medical emergency, seeing a local healthcare professional is a must.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehabilitation can never take the place of professional emergency care. Rehab only caters for common detox needs and therapeutic care.

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.

But if you are facing non-emergency detox requirements, you can get admission in one to two days.
