What Are The Differences Between Alcohol/Drug Detox And Rehab?

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

Rehab comprises the therapeutic aspects of treatment that deal with the subconscious psychological elements of addictive behaviour and generally takes place following the detox phase.

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab is not the best choice for those listed below:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • 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.

Is A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab Always The Same Length?

This is dependent on your individual needs.

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

  • 7-10 days - Common detox of 7 to 10 days for alcohol or drug treatment, without therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • 28+ days - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

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.

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

Care Plan

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 Riddrie which has a specialist assigned to you personally, as long as you are there.

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. 

Ensure that you tell it as it as, in relation to previous use, patterns of abuse, alcohol intake, and recent use.

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

Therapy Insights

Focus on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling you receive since they can help you make tremendous headway into addictive patterns.

Relapse Prevention

You should not commit to an aftercare plan without first reflecting on all the wins you have garnered from all the sessions you have been involved in while in rehab. 

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 triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

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, rehab success rates can differ, because the client (him)(her)self is responsible for their own long-term recovery process.

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.

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 short-lived primary treatment, conducted in a specialised, secure setting, to help you navigate to the subsequent stage of your recovery journey.

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

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 others, their weekly calendar will involve some group therapy and a daily meeting with their sponsor.

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

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

Clients who have welcomed the idea that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*, progress far better than those who view it as a burden that takes from their lives.

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

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?

Excellent question.

For others who have experienced the same scenario, in most cases, they have come to terms with letting go of a part of them that was locked up in a cycle of addiction.


It doesn’t imply that we have to put on brave faces and endure lots of emotional baggage to handle the urge to use, rather, we simply evaluate our situation in a controlled setting by learning why we use, and our intentions behind it.

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 Are The Top 3 Most Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Riddrie?

#1

Reactions To Detox

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.

This is a time to be vocal about your symptoms, with the professionals available, in order to maintain a detox that is both safe and comfortable.

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

People who are used to having family near them may briefly wrestle with their absence.

 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.

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.

Despite this, with an extended stay in rehab, people are able to cope more easily.

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.

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

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • 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.
  • Returning to long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a 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.
  • 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.
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

How Do I Predict If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

There is no definite answer for this since it takes effort and commitment to break even the toughest addictions, especially where therapy is concerned.

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 Is Rehab Different To Tapering Down On My Own?

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.

Without professional supervision of symptoms, medical emergencies are possible, such as cardiovascular issues, blood pressure changes, risk of seizure, liver complications, etc.

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. This is non-negotiable.

What Happens If I/My Loved One Relapses After Leaving Treatment - Do We Get A Refund?

Make sure that you understand where the rehab clinic stands regarding refunds.

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.

This is not to say that you have to carry all the effort personally, but that it is vital to establish your weak points in recovery, and request help where needed, along the way.

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

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

#1

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

#2

How long should I stay in the clinic?

#3

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

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#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 Immediately After I Sign Up For Rehab?

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.

For Urgent Or Emergency Drug/Alcohol Problems, Does A Rehab Centre Take Care Of That?

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab and qualified emergency medical services are two different things. 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.

But if your problem is not emergency based, you can be admitted within 24 to 48 hours.
