In This Guide

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

Maybe we can be your guide.

If you've struggled to find the right questions to ask, meet our comprehensive guide to finding drug or alcohol addiction help in Pollokshaws, Glasgow, below.

Let's begin:

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

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

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.

Detox-Only Treatment

  • Detox included
  • All treatment under one roof
  • Personalised therapy
  • Ongoing help

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • 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".

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

The appropriate duration in  a treatment programme depends on your personal circumstances and history of addiction.

Look at the treatment options near Pollokshaws 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 - Regular simple stay for preliminary detoxification and several therapy sessions.
  • 28 days and above - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Unless the addict starts treatment, it will be challenging to ascertain the exact duration of treatment needed. This is because being in a rehab clinic is the best time to monitor progress without the presence of drugs or alcohol.

In the event of significant progress in the treatment centre after the 28 days have passed, one can leave the facility, although some people might stay for a bit longer.

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

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

Be transparent about what you hope to achieve in the rehab centre. 

From past detox and rehab experiences, try to come up with a deliberate approach in your care plan, that overcomes previous setbacks and deals with emotional triggers.

Life will be much easier if you pick a rehab clinic in Pollokshaws that will provide you with a personal case manager to help you cope with the process.

Physical Detox

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. 

Open up about past addictions, alcohol intake, and how recently you used.

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 The Future

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

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? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. 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.

It also becomes increasingly difficult for rehab clinics to keep in touch with former clients, over very long time periods, in order to track success or efficiency 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-lived primary treatment, conducted in a specialised, secure setting, to help you navigate to the subsequent stage of your recovery journey.

How Much Time Will Ongoing Long-Term Addiction Recovery Take Out Of My Life Each Week?

This will differ from individual to individual but the common issues include how long the recovery process has taken, the supports in your life, daily triggers in your life at the moment, and the work still to be done in relation to the therapeutic steps during treatment, among others.

In some cases, some clients’ weekly schedules are upheld by everyday check-ins with respective sponsors and some mutual aid sittings every week.

Other will only make it after multiple mutual aid sessions, several group therapy sessions, a strong family support network, and consulting other specialists to deal with different health issues, among others.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely 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.

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

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?

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.


It doesn't mean that we must smile and endure immense emotional tension to release the urge to drink or consume drugs, but rather to realise the true underlying causes, in a clinical setting.

A skilled mental health therapist can help you gain the insight needed to release a pattern, not through sheer force, but by understanding, and releasing an old way of achieving something and tackling the issue in a new way, for the first time.

What Parts Of Rehab Treatment Near Pollokshaws Should I Expect To Be The Most Trying?

#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.

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

Redrawing Social Boundaries

Those who have very strong family or other connections, may struggle with the loss of this connection, temporarily.

 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.

But in cases where the connections, for instance, loved ones provide real support, it is advisable to sit down with the admissions crew and plan for supervised visits to make the person’s experience less traumatising.

#3

The Mental Shift From Dependence To Responsibility

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.

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.

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

Are There Any Common Patterns In Those Who Aren't Successful In Long Term Addiction Recovery?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Not seeking support or assistance when experiencing a trigger situation.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • Going back to old ways of coping after treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapsing.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • Maybe someone had a miserable time during their first rehab, mutual aid, or treatment stint, and this experience led them to believe that rehab/treatment is not worth it.
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Depending too much on non-qualified sources of support.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

How Can I Tell In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Is Likely To Help Someone With My Pattern Of Addiction?

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.

In essence, to have a smooth journey of recovery, you must be prepared to accept assistance, adhere to advice, be responsible for your actions. And, to accept to embrace the requisite support and help.

Are Rehab And Alcoholics Anonymous Different, Really?

Residential Rehab Treatment v Alcoholics Anonymous Pollokshaws
Rehab Treatment
  • Rehab essentially involves services like relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic intervention under one roof, by one provider in a clinically regulated environment.
AA & Mutual Aid Meetings
  • For a non-clinical and mutual aid background where individuals can freely pour out their hearts regarding their recovery journey, AA is the best place.

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. This is a must.

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.

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

#1

Have you handled many clients with a drug/alcohol intake and case history like my own?

#2

How long do I have to take the treatment?

#3

Can I join your programme for a short stay at first and then add additional days later?

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

Do you allow visits from family? 

#7

What changes have you made to your programme, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?

#8

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

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

What Happens When I Select A Rehab Clinic To Admit To?

Following an initial telephone review, you would be required to book a room at the clinic by paying a deposit. 

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

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

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.

Nevertheless, if you have non-emergency need for detox and/or rehab, most standard rehab clinics can admit in 24-48 hours.
