Ready? Let's get started:

What Are The Differences Between Alcohol/Drug Detox And Rehab?

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

Rehab can be described as the therapeutic component of residential treatment and it takes care of the subconscious psychological aspects of addiction.

  • Long term support

What Sorts Of Folks Are NOT Suited To Rehab?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • 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 Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

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 Sighthill 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 - 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

As long as the individual is not yet in the rehab clinic, it will be hard to estimate the duration of treatment. Why is this? Because it's only during treatment that we can evaluate reactions to triggers minus the presence of drugs and alcohol.

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 Sighthill Do I Focus On, For Lasting Recovery?

Care Plan

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 Sighthill that will select and assign one support worker to help you navigate through your stay

Detox

Don't shy away from talking honestly with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist  assigned to you, regarding the detox regimen with the best chance of working. 

Ensure that you tell it as it as, in relation to previous use, patterns of abuse, alcohol intake, and recent use.

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

Therapy Time

Keeping in mind that addiction affects life in a personal way through recognised patterns, it is critical to give cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling all your attention to help overcome the underlying psychological issues.

Relapse Prevention

Taking a moment and assessing what kind of gains you have made from the therapy sessions, one-on-one interactions, and support groups, is highly recommended before committing to specifics in your aftercare plan. 

In your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

Click to Tweet

In what ways could you plan to pre-empt these susceptible areas, and move towards their permanent resolution? What is the action needed to make this happen? 

Increased therapy hours? Outside assistance from a sponsor in Rehab Sighthill or long-term recovery supporter?

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

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Guarantee Success?

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

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

Following pressure from potential clients regarding the long-term outcome of the rehab regimen, many rehab facilities face an uphill task when tracing former clients to gauge whether the programme was successful, in the very long term.

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

Other client’s weekly diaries will include contact with a sponsor, group therapy, plus several weekly mutual aid discussions.

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

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.

Being in recovery means that you should be ready for a perpetual process of personal insight, self-approval, and getting real support backing you up.

What Aspects Of Life Need To Change, Dramatically, So That I Can Become Sober?

Great 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.


It doesn’t imply that we have to put on brave faces and endure lots of emotional baggage to handle the urge to use, rather, we simply evaluate our situation in a controlled setting by learning why we use, and our intentions behind it.

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 Sighthill?

#1

Initial Detox

Detox can be challenging in the first four to six days as the mental and physical systems are trying to come to terms with limited substance intake.

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

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

Individuals with deep family connections or friendships may at first have a hard time coping with the loss of connection.

 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.

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

Emotional Transformation

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.

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 you spend in treatment, the more you will gain in your recovery journey.

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • A bad initial experience with one specific source, which later leads to a long-term (mistaken) assumption that "treatment/rehab doesn't work.".
  • Too much non-professional input into your recovery, and not enough qualified advice. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • 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.

How Is Rehab Different To AA?

Residential Rehab Treatment v Alcoholics Anonymous Sighthill
Residential Rehab
  • Rehab essentially involves services like relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic intervention under one roof, by one provider in a clinically regulated environment.
Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings
  • AA is a non-clinical, mutual aid setting, where individuals come together in community-based meetings, to share their collective journeys, in the hope of helping others, and themselves.

I Don't Think I Need Rehab, I Could Taper 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.

Health issues are likely without clinical monitoring of signs, such as respiratory conditions, increases in blood pressure, risk of epilepsy, liver abnormalities, etc.

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

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

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

Generally, it's extremely unlikely they will offer any form of refund for a relapse following treatment, since (brutal truth here) *you* are the only one responsible for your long-term recovery.

This does not mean you have to do all the work; but it does mean you need to clearly identify where you need help or support, for weak areas in your recovery, and actively ask for that help or support until you receive it.

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 Sighthill, Glasgow?

#1

Are you experienced in dealing with clients in the same situation as mine, regarding detox and intake levels?

#2

For my needs, what treatment length do you suggest?

#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

Are there additional charges for aftercare?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

What changes have you made to your programme, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?

#8

Could you give me a copy of the current inspection and ratings Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate?

#9

What is your refund policy?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

After you are through with an initial telephone assessment, the most likely course of action will be to pay an amount to book a room at the clinic. 

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.

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab and qualified emergency medical services are two different things. Rehab facilities can handle basic detox requirements plus therapeutic care afterwards.

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.
