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

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

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 Ruchill, Glasgow.

Does Rehab Treatment Incliude Detox?

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

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.

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

Rehab is NOT advisable for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • 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.

What's The Ideal Treatment Length For A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol 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 Ruchill 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.
  • More than 28 days - Regular stay that has lots of therapy sessions and the opportunity to facilitate post-rehab support.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Once the person is finally in the rehab clinic, gaining the necessary insights, and visualising their ability to cope with stimuli and stressful situations without the coping mechanism of alcohol or narcotics, only then will it be easier to determine how long treatment should last.

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 Elements Of Drug/Alcohol Treatment Ruchill Do I Focus On, For Lasting Recovery?

Care Plan

Be forthright and honest in what you expect from the rehab programme. 

Use previous work in detox or rehabilitation to understand what areas need your focus, and the triggers that still need a lot of attention.

Try to pick a Ruchill clinic which provides a personally assigned case manager, who works with you personally, throughout the addiction rehabilitation programme.

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. 

It is vital to be transparent to the staff about how often you use, alcohol intake, and the last time you used/drank.

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

Therapy Time

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.

Relapse Prevention

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. 

In your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Are there any mental health triggers that you have uncovered that you weren't aware of before?

Click to Tweet

Get clear on how to overcome the vulnerable moments, and required actions to deal with them for good. In what way could you make this a reality? 

Extra therapy sessions? Support from outwith the programme, especially from a sponsor located near Rehab Ruchill or a previous recovery partner?

You can come up with resources that are linked to your particular life situation.

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

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

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.

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 term, primary care intervention in a specialist environment; to assist you to the next stage of your long term recovery journey.

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 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.

It is wrong to assume that recovery involves some specific secret steps that you go through to achieve a lifetime of sobriety.

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 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.

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 Ruchill Should I Expect To Be The Most Trying?

#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.

During this time, make sure that the specialist handling your case knows about any kind of symptoms you may be experiencing to ensure an appropriate and painless detox process.

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

Clients with established links with loved ones or friends may at first find it challenging when they are cut off.

 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.

#3

Moving From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

Transitioning both emotionally and psychologically from the addictive mindset which involves chaos, dependence and co-dependence can prove difficult.

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.

 If you keep absorbing positive attitudes over time, it will be more profitable for your long-term recovery.

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

  • Shying away from asking for help when it matters. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • 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.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • A bad initial experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • By being reluctant to get rid of habits that trigger old drug or alcohol habits.

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

Even the worst addicts can change, through dedication and determination, especially with commitment to ongoing therapy work.

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?

Rehab .v. Alcoholics Anonymous Ruchill
Rehab Treatment
  • Rehab is a clinically controlled environment that caters for the primary care requirements such as prevention of relapse, therapeutic intervention, and detox, in a residential setting by a single provider.
Alcoholics Anonymous
  • 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?

Private rehab offers a supervised and professionally controlled environment to complete detox and withdrawal safely, with expert supervision, and feedback on symptoms and progress throughout.

Tapering off alcohol minus any professional aid can harm you and is not advisable.

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 a must.

Do I Get Treatment Costs Reimbursed If I Relapse After Treatment?

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

To be realistic, not many clinics will refund you following a relapse, given that you are personally responsible for your own 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.

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

#1

How experienced are you in detoxing clients with a history like mine?

#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

What changes have you made to your service as a result of Covid-19?

#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 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. 

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.

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

Important: in the event of serious emergency, you must contact your local emergency department and access qualified medical care immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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.
