Let's get started.

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

Are There People Who Should NOT Go To Rehab?

  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • People living with addictive behaviour who are not bothered by their life of denial, with no problem about letting other people put in all the work.

 

How Long Should A Stay In Alcohol/Drug Rehab Treatment Last?

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

The following treatment options are available near Shieldhall and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • 28 days and above - 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.

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 Shieldhall?

Care Plan

Make clear your expectations of the whole rehab programme. 

 

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.

Do your best to find an addiction treatment programme near Shieldhall which has a specialist assigned to you personally, as long as you are there.

 

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. 

Open up about past addictions, alcohol intake, and how recently you used.

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.

Therapy Insights

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

 

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

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? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. 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.

The majority of people seeking a rehab programme need guarantees about extended success rates, and it can be difficult for clinics to track all previous clients, exhaustively.

 

Even after receiving superior therapy services from a private rehab, whether or not you will be successful all boils down to your effort.

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.

 

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

Other will only make it after multiple mutual aid sessions, several group therapy sessions, a strong family support network, and consulting other specialists to deal with different health issues, among others.

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.

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?

Excellent question.

Others before you have almost always found that they had to give up an old part of themselves that was locked in a pattern of addiction, acting out the same coping mechanism to the point of exhaustion.


This does not mean that we need to smile and suffer an immense amount of mental discomfort to move beyond the need to drink or consume drugs, but instead, we should strive to explore the true motives behind these habits.

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 Shieldhall, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Initial 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.

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

#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.

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.

 

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • 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 long-left habits and coping strategies following treatment, and this ending up triggering a relapse.
  • Absent support systems from family and friends together with trigger situations and stressors, which become a recipe for disaster.
  • A bad initial encounter in mutual aid, rehab or treatment which gives rise to the misconception that rehab doesn’t work.
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Over-reliance on non-expert sources of assistance.
  • Unwillingness to let go of, or break contact with, a previous known trigger for addictive tendencies or behaviour.

 

Is Rehab Likely To Work For Someone Like Me, With My History Of Usage, And Intake Pattern?

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 accept help, willing to follow directions, accept that your life is your responsibility, and are prepared to seek out the required resource and support to help you recover, your chances of lasting success can increase.

Others Have Suggested I Taper Down On My Own, And Don't Need Help - Is That Correct?

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.

Tapering down alcohol intake independently, without professional assistance, can be extremely dangerous and is expressly *not* recommended.

Without professional supervision of symptoms, medical emergencies are possible, such as cardiovascular issues, blood pressure changes, risk of seizure, liver complications, etc.

 

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

 

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

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.

Does this imply that you should shoulder the entire burden? No, it means that you should establish your own areas of  vulnerability in recovery, and seek out appropriate support.

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

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For Rehab?

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. 

Next, the admissions team would ask their personnel for medical permission to admit you and be admitted 24 to 48 hours later.

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

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.

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.

Still, for any non-emergency detox/rehab services, most clinics can get you a place in a couple of days.
