If you're looking for alcohol or drug addiction help near Scotstoun, Glasgow - you'll already know how confusing the options can be.

Maybe we can be your guide.

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

Let's get started.

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

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

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.

Detox .v. Rehab In Scotstoun, Glasgow

Detox
  • Supervised detox
  • Residential care
  • No individual therapy elements
  • No aftercare provided
Rehab Programme
  • Professional detox
  • Fully residential
  • Individualised therapy
  • Long term support

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Detoxers who routinely fall off the wagon, and have an alcohol/drug pattern they perpetually deny.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • 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 Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

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

Look at the treatment options near Scotstoun 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.
  • More than 28 days - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It might be difficult to measure an ideal treatment duration until the individual is actually in the rehab clinic, gaining the required insights, and visualising their ability to deal with triggers and difficult scenarios without the coping mechanism of alcohol or drugs.

Someone who feels well-resourced already, may be ready to leave drug or alcohol treatment after 28 days; others may take longer.

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

Be transparent about what you hope to achieve in the rehab centre. 

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.

It's best to select a Scotstoun treatment service that will assign a case manager, to ease your way throughout the programme.

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. 

It is in your best interest to speak the truth about patterns of drug and alcohol intake, former periods of use, and the most recent use.

Giving false answers, due to pride, is not a good idea at this stage, since your answers to questions will help determine the specific detox you receive, and hence your comfort and safety, in the Rehab Scotstoun clinic.

Therapeutic Time

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

Planning For The Future

It pays to assess your progress from the support group sessions, therapy, keywork workshops and one-on-one discussions. 

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? What triggers have you discovered that need attention, that you weren't aware of before?

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

Are there suitable safety measures you could implement, that fit the day-to-day situations you face in life?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Work, From A Statistical Perspective?

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. 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.

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.

Simply put, to succeed in staying sober after you have been through a private rehab, will greatly depend on your will to succeed and follow the teachings.

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 vary depending on (e.g.) how far along your recovery journey you are; how many supports you have around you; how many day-to-day triggers you typically experience in your life right now; how much left over work you had from the therapeutic gains made in treatment; and many others.

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

Nevertheless, it is essential to change your mindset.

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.

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.

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

Good question.

Others have almost all discovered that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was trapped in a cycle of addiction, carrying out the same coping mechanism in order to feel a little brief satisfaction, but with great long-term repercussions.


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.

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 Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Scotstoun, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Reactions To Detox

The first 48 to 72 hours can be traumatic since the mind and body of the person is in the process of adapting to the lessened substance intake.

By speaking out regarding symptoms during this period, you will enable your specialist to come up with a more comfortable detox plan.

#2

Releasing Harmful Social Influences

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

 But when these groups with strong ties to the client include active users and dealers, it is in the best interest of the client to sever them.

For some individuals who are used to support from family and loved ones, it can be stressful leaving them and getting into the clinic. This is why there should be a discussion with the clinic regarding visits and communication with family.

#3

Moving Beyond The Mindset Of Addiction

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.

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

Your time in rehab can be beneficial if you try to absorb the mindsets of other people in the clinic with you, and embrace some of their outlook.

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

What Are The Reasons Some People Fail To Achieve Lasting Recovery From Drug/Alcohol Addiction?

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. 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.
  • Returning to long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A poor first experience in treatment/rehab/mutual aid with one particular source, which later leads to a (mistaken) long term belief 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.
  • Unwillingness to let go of, or break contact with, a previous known trigger for addictive tendencies or behaviour.

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

This can't be predicted easily since even the worst addictive habits can be broken by being steadfast in following the process, specifically the therapy regimen.

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 Are The Differences Between AA And Rehab?

What's The Difference Between Going To Rehab And Tapering 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.

Weaning off alcohol alone, without expert support, can be life-threatening and is specifically not recommended.

With no professional input and monitoring of symptoms, the likelihood of health issues like cardiovascular and liver complications, blood pressure issues, seizures, and many more, increases significantly.

It's vital to consult your regular medical professional before registering for any kind of alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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

Check with the individual rehab clinic you've engaged with, *before* entering treatment, about their refund policy.

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

Does this mean that you are responsible for all the work? No. In as much you have to put in some work, it is recommended that you look for vulnerabilities in your own recovery and actively ask to be helped.

Some clinics offer an additional stay if relapse occurs, but again, this varies, check with the prospective provider you're speaking with.

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

#1

Have you handled many clients with a drug/alcohol intake and case history like my own?

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

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

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#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. 

The next step the provider would take is to ask the clinical staff for medical consent. Thereafter, it can take one to two days to be admitted.

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

Important: In the event of a serious medical emergency, seeing a local healthcare professional is a must.

KEY TAKEAWAY

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

However, a rehab clinic is not a hospital, and does not have the appropriate medical equipment or staffing to deal with issues such as advanced liver decomposition, high risk of seizure, or other complications.

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