Trying to find the right drug/alcohol treatment near Ruchill, Glasgow can begin to feel like your going round in circles.

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

Get ready, and take notes from our top answers below, to finding the right addiction treatment near Ruchill, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

Are Alcohol/Drug Rehab And Detox Two Different Things?

You can get both rehab and detox services for addiction, in a single 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.

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab is not the best choice for those listed below:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • Those who want to continue the pattern of denial and lack of responsibility, and want someone else to "do it all for them".

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

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

Here’s an idea of typical treatment options for Ruchill and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - A week to ten days - regular detox - alcohol or drug treatment stay, usually minus therapy
  • 14-28 days - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • Over 28 days - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It is only when the person is actually in the rehab clinic that we can know how long he’ll stay since this is the time they can be observed in different scenarios with no drugs and alcohol involved.

If an individual feels better after 28 days in the treatment centre, they may depart, but many stay beyond this.

How Do I Make Best Use Of My Time, In Drug/Alcohol Rehab Treatment Ruchill?

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

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

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

Take an active role in discussion with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist, following your admission to rehab, when agreeing the detox protocol you'll undergo. 

Be open and honest with staff, re previous usage, patterns of use, and recency of use.

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

Therapeutic Help

Try to take maximum advantage of the time you have in therapy, e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, and counselling work, as this is where the main psychological breakthroughs can be made, as addiction affects you personally, and your personal pattern of addiction expresses itself in your life.

Planning For The Future

Before committing anything to paper, reflect firstly on the learnings you've gained from support groups, from mutual aid work, from keywork sessions, from one-to-one work. 

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?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

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

Clients searching for rehab services are increasingly seeking reassurance about the success of the services offered and this has made it hard to keep an eye on *all* former clients for purposes of ongoing evaluation.

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 treatment, to get you on the next step of your journey to healing.

Would Recovery Activities Take A Lot Of Time Out Of My Life, In An Average Week, After 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.

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

Some clients will find it hard to be stable unless they complete group therapy several times per week, community meetings, consulting experts for unrelated health issues, plus getting lots of family support.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Nevertheless, it is essential to change your mindset.

From what we have observed, clients with lasting success are those who have acknowledged that it is not about how long recovery work takes, but instead that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

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

Instead, it is a gradual process of personal discovery and evaluation, accepting yourself and being in the company of supportive systems that will make it easier.

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

Good question.

Others starting out in recovery found out that it was vital to let go of an old part of themselves ingrained in addictive patterns.


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 Ruchill?

#1

Adjusting 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 when you should never be quiet about any symptoms since it will relevant to help staff facilitate a seamless and safe detox process.

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

There are some people with firm connections with loved ones and when they are severed, they end up having a tough time.

 But when these connections comprise of parties directly involved in drug or alcohol abuse such as sellers and other addicts, cutting links is recommended.

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

Moving From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

The emotional and psychological transformation to an attitude of recovery from one of addictive behaviours such as carelessness, dependence and co-dependence, is not easy, for most people.

But after someone stays a longer period in rehab, it can become less challenging.

While in rehab, try to see it as a time to absorb the approach, and mental thinking style, of other people on the same path to recovery.

 The longer the timeframe you have to do this, the greater the longer-term rewards are likely to be.

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • During recovery, returning to an old habit, coping mechanism, or way of life, raising the risk of a situation leading to relapse.
  • Non-existent support from loved ones and other external parties, coupled with repetitive trigger scenarios and unexpected stressors.
  • A bad initial experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • By being reluctant to get rid of habits that trigger old drug or alcohol habits.

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

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

Broadly speaking, if you are willing to receive assistance, willing to follow instructions, accept that your life is your own responsibility, and are willing to pursue the services and care needed to help you heal, your chances of success will improve.

What's The Difference Between Going To Rehab And Tapering Down On My Own?

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.

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

When professional management of symptoms is absent, there can be health complications such as seizures, heart issues, liver problems, fluctuations in blood pressure, among others.

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

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.

Essentially, very few clinics can offer refund after you relapse because long-term recovery is the responsibility of the client.

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.

What Should I Ask, When Vetting Treatment Clinics Near Ruchill, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

What treatment duration do you suggest for my needs?

#3

Will I be allowed to admit for a short duration of treatment and increase it later, once settled?

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

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

#8

Please send me the latest Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

What is your refund policy?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

You'll usually complete a telephone assessment, and most providers at this point will request payment of a deposit, in order to hold a room for you, in their facility. 

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

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

Important: If there is a severe emergency, it is recommended that you contact local trained medical personnel immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab is not a substitute for qualified emergency care. Rehab clinics offer standard detox services followed by therapeutic intervention.

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.
