Finding safe, professional help for drug or alcohol problems in Robroyston, Glasgow can be overwhelming. How do you find the right treatment, at the right cost?

Maybe we can help you navigate.

In our guide below, you'll find the right questions to ask an addiction clinic (and the right answers).

Let's begin:

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 can be described as the therapeutic component of residential treatment and it takes care of the subconscious psychological aspects of addiction.

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.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • Individuals addicted to drugs or alcohol who are not yet ready to stop using.

 

What's The Ideal Treatment Length For A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab?

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

Here’s an idea of typical treatment options for Robroyston 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 - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • More than 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 Robroyston?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

 

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.

Choose an addiction rehabilitation programme near Robroyston that will select and assign one support worker to help you navigate through your stay

 

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.

By presenting the situation as it is, the specialists will be able to place you on an ideal detox plan and it’ll ensure that you have an easier time at the Rehab Robroyston treatment centre.

 

Therapeutic Time

Keeping in mind that addiction affects life in a personal way through recognised patterns, it is critical to give cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling all your attention to help overcome the underlying psychological issues.

Relapse Prevention

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. 

 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? 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%. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

Ultimately, the success of a rehab stay differs from individual to individual because it depends on the mindset of the addict.

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.

 

It goes without saying that you are personally responsible for the success of your rehab process.

Rehab is a brief primary care process in supervised surroundings to help you reach the next phase of your recovery plan.

 

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.

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.

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

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*.

Recovery isn’t a one-time process that you go through, and end up being sober for the rest of your life.

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

Great 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.


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.

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 Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Robroyston Struggle With?

#1

Detox Symptoms

The initial 48-72 hours of detox can be the most trying, physically and emotionally, as the body and mind adjust to reduced substance intake, and detox begins.

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

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

 In some cases, these are connections with parties detrimental to the recovery process such as other alcohol users or substance dealers. Here the severing of these ties is for the better.

For others, where loved ones offer genuine support, this may be difficult, and it can be worth discussing with the admissions team, before entering a clinic, what the family/communication/visit policies are, to help plan ahead of time, and minimise this discomfort.

 

What Patterns Tend To Result In Failed Attempts At Recovery, That I Should Avoid?

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. 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.
  • During recovery, returning to an old habit, coping mechanism, or way of life, raising the risk of a situation 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 while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • 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.

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?

Rehab Clinic Treatment .v. AA Robroyston
Residential Rehab
  • 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.
Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings
  • At AA, people come together in a non-clinical and mutual aid surroundings to speak of their life story and assist one another.

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

Private rehabilitation provides a well-managed and expertly supervised process for detox and safe withdrawal. In addition, there is professional monitoring of the recovery journey and symptoms at every step.

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

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

 

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. This is non-negotiable.

 

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

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

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.

But this is not an indication that everything is up to you, without help, but that you must pinpoint the areas that you are vulnerable in, and seek support.

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

 

What Do I Ask, To Make Sure The Clinic I'm Speaking To Near Robroyston, Glasgow, Is A Good Match?

#1

Are you experienced in dealing with clients in the same situation as mine, regarding detox and intake levels?

#2

How long do I have to take the treatment?

#3

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

#4

Please elaborate on options for relapse prevention?

#5

Are the aftercare services part of the final charges?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#7

With COVID-19 ravaging the world, have you changed any part of your services?

#8

Can you send me a copy of your latest Care Quality Commission or Care Inspectorate inspection reports and ratings?

#9

Does you clinic have a policy on issuing refunds?

 

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

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 this point, the provider gets authorisation from their medical staff, and thereafter can normally admit you within a day or two.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

Important: When a medical emergency occurs, you are advised to seek local medical assistance urgently.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. This is a must.

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