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

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

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

Let's get started.

What Are The Differences Between Detox And Rehab Options?

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.

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited 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.
  • Individuals who are hesitant to make sense of their drug/alcohol addiction and stick to the subsequent recommendations provided.
  • 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 time you will spend in a rehab centre is based on your individual case.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Shettleston and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Ranging from one week to a week and a half, a general detox programme that caters for alcohol or drug addicts but there is usually no therapy included.
  • 14-28 days - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • More than 28 days - Standard stay that consist of increased therapy sessions and coordinating for aftercare help.

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.

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.

What Should I Make A Point Of Doing, During Rehab Shettleston?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

From past detox and rehab experiences, try to come up with a deliberate approach in your care plan, that overcomes previous setbacks and deals with emotional triggers.

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

Detox

With the help of the consultant psychiatrist or professional at the detox centre, make sure that you’re involved in selecting the most suitable detox regimen. 

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.

The info you provide at this stage can determine your prescribed detox regimen and ultimately a comfortable stay at the Rehab Shettleston rehab centre.

Therapy Time

Use the sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy in the rehab facility wisely, since it is where psychological gains are made.

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

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 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?

In what ways could you plan to pre-empt these susceptible areas, and move towards their permanent resolution? What would you require to do that? 

More time in therapy? Support from outwith the programme, especially from a sponsor located near Rehab Shettleston or a previous recovery partner?

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

How Many Succeed In Staying Dry Or Clean, Following Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment?

Success rate for detox, is usually very high, i.e. 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.

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.

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

After Addiction Rehab, Does Recovery Take Up A Lot Of Time?

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.

For some, their weekly timetable will be maintained by a daily check-in with their sponsor and a few mutual aid meetings per week.

Others will only reach a stable point after several weekly therapy sessions, consulting different specialists for different health problems, support from loved ones and mutual aid sessions or calls.

KEY takeaway

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely 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?

Excellent 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.

An expert cognitive behavioural therapist will assist you to get the understanding required to eliminate patterns, not forcefully, but via doing away with old ways of handling the situation and learning new ways.

Are There Elements Of Shettleston Addiction Treatment, More Trying Than Others?

#1

Adjusting To Detox

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.

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

#2

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

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

 This may be a step in a better direction in some situations, where the client's social community comprises those involved in active addiction, such as dealers and others in active addiction.

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

Emotional Transformation

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.

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.

 By doing this for an extended period of time, you will discover that it will add more value to the long-term recovery process.

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

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • 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 doesn’t have a precise answer as it depends on the devotion that the client puts in the process, particularly in therapy.

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?

Rehab .v. Alcoholics Anonymous Shettleston
Residential Rehab
  • 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.

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering Down On My Own?

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.

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

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.

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. This is a must.

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.

It goes without saying that you are ultimately in charge of your long-term recovery process, meaning it will be highly unlikely that you will be refunded should you relapse.

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.

Some rehab facilities include an extension, should a client relapse, but to be on the safe side, it is better to confirm.

Is There An Admission Process To Get Booked In To Rehab?

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.

I/We Need Help Urgently, What Should I/We Do?

KEY TAKEAWAY

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.

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.

Nevertheless, if you have non-emergency need for detox and/or rehab, most standard rehab clinics can admit in 24-48 hours.
