Asking the right questions to find alcohol or drug help near Roughmussel, Glasgow can be a minefield.

But, if you know what to ask, support *is* available.

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

Let's get started.

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

Usually, in residential addiction treatment, rehab and detox are delivered together.

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

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • Drug or alcohol addicted individuals who aren't yet ready to relinquish their denial and irresponsibility, whilst still depending on others to make all the effort.

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

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

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Roughmussel 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 - 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.

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 Roughmussel, To Get Best Possible Results?

Care Plan

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

By reflecting on previous detox and rehab centres, you can easily identify what areas to concentrate on during treatment, and the triggers that still have power over you and need dealing with.

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

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.

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.

Therapeutic Help

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

Aftercare Planning

Reflect first on the experiences you have learned from support groups, from mutual aid work, from keywork workshops, from one-to-one work, before committing something to paper for future supports. 

Where do you feel most helpless in your recovery process, and need enhanced support levels to make it through? Are there any triggers, or associations with addiction, that make you want to use, that you weren’t aware of before?

What are your plans for pre-empting these helpless moments and dealing with the addiction for good? What is the action needed to make this happen? 

More therapy time? External aid by sponsors or long-term recovery support groups?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

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

Following pressure from potential clients regarding the long-term outcome of the rehab regimen, many rehab facilities face an uphill task when tracing former clients to gauge whether the programme was successful, in the very long term.

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 specialised setting, that can support you in reaching the next steps of your bigger 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.

For others, it might be several sessions of therapy, attending secondary specialists for other health issues, and family support, amongst others, before a stable footing is found.

KEY TAKEAWAY

In this case, a different perspective on the original question could help your recovery journey more.

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.

Recovery is not a series of "secret" steps that you undertake a few times, to be rewarded with long term sobriety.

Recovery is a continuous exercise that involves a lot of introspection, self-acceptance and having a supportive network around you.

What Do I Have To Give Up, To 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 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.

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 Demanding Elements Of Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment Near Roughmussel?

#1

Detox Symptoms

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.

In this phase, inform the specialists about your symptoms to ensure that the detox is suitably safe for you.

#2

Redrawing Social Boundaries

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

 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

Changing The Mindset

To make the psychological and emotional evolution from an addicted individual with dependence and co-dependence, to a recovery mindset, is not a walk in the park.

Nevertheless, the longer one stays in rehab, the easier it becomes.

Think of rehab itself as not just a place and time to achieve certain outcomes, but also a time to absorb the attitudes, and mindsets, of recovery, from those around you, on the same journey.

 The longer you spend in treatment, the more you will gain in your recovery journey.

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

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • Going back to old ways of coping after treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapsing.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A bad initial experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. 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?

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

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.

How Are AA And Rehab Different?

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

I Don't Think I Need Rehab, I Could Taper Down On My Own.

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

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

If there is no professional management of the symptoms, there are higher chances of arising health issues like heart and liver complications, seizures, blood pressure problems, and others.

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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

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.

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.

There are clinics that have an extra stay as part of their services in the event the client relapses.

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

#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 detox-only, then increase my stay once admitted?

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#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

I'd like copies of the up-to-date Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

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

After the provider has gotten consent for admission from the medical team, they can proceed to admit you to the facility; a process that usually takes 1-2 days.

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

You can never substitute rehab for competent medical care. Rehab facilities can handle basic detox requirements plus therapeutic care afterwards.

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.

What if your detox or rehab case is not an emergency? In this case, you can gain admission in many clinics within one or two days.
