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

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 Pollok, Glasgow.

Let's get started.

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

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

Rehab refers to the therapeutic elements of a stay in treatment, that tackle the underlying psychological components of addiction, and usually occurs after the initial physical detox stage.

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Detoxers who routinely fall off the wagon, and have an alcohol/drug pattern they perpetually deny.
  • Individuals who are hesitant to make sense of their drug/alcohol addiction and stick to the subsequent recommendations provided.
  • 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.

How Do I Work Out How Long To Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Addiction Rehab?

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

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Pollok 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 - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • Over 28 days - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It is only when the person is actually in the rehab clinic that we can know how long he’ll stay since this is the time they can be observed in different scenarios with no drugs and alcohol involved.

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.

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

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

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

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.

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

Physical Detox

After admission, take an active part in the conversation with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist before committing to the detox procedure that you will undergo. 

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

The info you provide at this stage can determine your prescribed detox regimen and ultimately a comfortable stay at the Rehab Pollok rehab 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 Long Term Sobriety

Taking a moment and assessing what kind of gains you have made from the therapy sessions, one-on-one interactions, and support groups, is highly recommended before committing to specifics in your aftercare plan. 

In what areas of your recovery process are you particularly vulnerable, and need bolstering, to tolerate the ups and downs of day to day life? Are there any mental health triggers that you have uncovered 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.

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.

Even after receiving superior therapy services from a private rehab, whether or not you will be successful all boils down to your effort.

Rehab is a short-term, primary care treatment, to get you on the next step of your journey to healing.

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

For other to find a firm footing, they will have to attend group therapy several times a week, see professional health practitioners to deal with other complications, gets tons of support from people around them and attend mutual aid sessions.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Still, it doesn’t hurt to rethink your perspective on this question.

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.

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

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?

Good 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 must smile and suffer an enormous amount of mental discomfort to alleviate the urge to drink or misuse medications, but should strive to consider the true reason we engage in these actions and what we are seeking to accomplish 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.

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

#1

Detox Symptoms

During the initial 4 to 6 days, detox can feel like an uphill task because the mind and body are trying to adapt to the diminished supply of the substance.

By speaking out regarding symptoms during this period, you will enable your specialist to come up with a more comfortable detox plan.

#2

Releasing Negative Social Influences

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

 This may be a step in a better direction in some situations, where the client's social community comprises those involved in active addiction, such as dealers and others in active addiction.

In circumstances where genuine support systems may be interfered with, there can be a middle point where visitation and communication channels with these connections are established to make the stay at the clinic more bearable.

#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.

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

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • 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.
  • During recovery, returning to an old habit, coping mechanism, or way of life, raising the risk of a situation leading to relapse.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • 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.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

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

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

When you admit that your life is in your own hands, follow instructions and embrace the resources and support systems necessary to help you in your recovery, odds are, that you will succeed.

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

By admitting to rehab, you will be embracing professionally supervised surroundings for detox and safe withdrawal. Here, you will also get constant feedback on your progress and symptoms.

Decreasing your alcohol intake on your own can be dangerous; always seek professional help.

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.

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. This is non-negotiable.

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

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

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.

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

#1

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

#2

For how long do I need to be treated?

#3

Can I admit for a shorter duration initially, then extend my stay once in the clinic?

Please elaborate on options for relapse prevention?

#9

How Do I Get Started With 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. 

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

I/We Need Help Urgently, What Should I/We Do?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab is not the same as emergency expert medical care. Rehab facilities can handle basic detox requirements plus therapeutic care afterwards.

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.

Still, for any non-emergency detox/rehab services, most clinics can get you a place in a couple of days.
