Asking the right questions to find alcohol or drug help near Springburn, Glasgow can be a minefield.

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

In the answers below, we showcase the insights needed to find the right help, at the right cost, near Springburn, 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.

Rehab comprises the therapeutic aspects of treatment that deal with the subconscious psychological elements of addictive behaviour and generally takes place following the detox phase.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

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".

Is A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab Always The Same Length?

The appropriate duration in  a treatment programme depends on your personal circumstances and history of addiction.

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

  • 7-10 days - Seven to ten days standard detox where addicts are treated for alcohol or drug addiction, normally without therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • Over 28 days - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

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.

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

Be forthright and honest in what you expect from the 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.

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

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. 

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

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 Springburn clinic.

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.

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

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 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?

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

More than 90% of people in detox successfully complete that part of the programme. Those who begin detox in a supervised treatment centre are highly likely to finish.

People in rehab are accountable for their long term recovery, and by extension, their success.

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.

Should I Expect To Change A Lot Of My Daily Routine, After Drug/Alcohol Rehab?

This is dependent on a number of factors such as the point you are at in your journey of recovery, your existing supports, daily triggers you have to deal with, plus the remaining benefits from the therapeutic work during treatment.

In some cases, some clients’ weekly schedules are upheld by everyday check-ins with respective sponsors and some mutual aid sittings every 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

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.

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

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

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 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.

By getting rid of old mindsets and embracing new ones, an accomplished cognitive behavioural therapist can assist you to learn what is needed to get eliminate patterns that fuel your habits but not through brute force.

Are There Elements Of Springburn 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.

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

Cutting Ties With Those Enabling Active Addiction

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

 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.

In circumstances where genuine support systems may be interfered with, there can be a middle point where visitation and communication channels with these connections are established to make the stay at the clinic more bearable.

#3

The Mental Shift From Dependence To Responsibility

Making the emotional/psychological transition from the mindset of addiction (dependence, co-dependence, lack of responsibility, chaotic lifestyle) to the mindset of recovery, can be challenging.

Still, after some time in rehab, things get better.

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.

 If you keep absorbing positive attitudes over time, it will be more profitable for your long-term recovery.

How/Why Might Some People Fail In Addiction Recovery?

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Enrolling in an out-patient recovery programme but being hindered by external stress factors that ruin your recovery process.
  • Going back to old ways of coping after treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapsing.
  • 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.
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

How Can I Tell If Rehab Will Work For Me, And My History With Drugs Or Alcohol Addiction?

There is no definite answer for this since it takes effort and commitment to break even the toughest addictions, especially where therapy is concerned.

If you're willing to stick to instructions, find support systems and accept responsibility for your recovery, you will have an easier journey.

What Are The Differences Between AA And 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
  • 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.

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.

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 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?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

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.

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.

Are There Specific Questions I Should Ask, To Find The Right Addiction Rehab That Meets My Needs, Near Springburn, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

How long do I have to take the treatment?

#3

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

#4

What is your aftercare provision?

#5

Are the aftercare services part of the final charges?

#6

Do you allow visits from family? 

#7

Due to COVID-19, are there any modifications to your policies or care?

#8

I'd like copies of the up-to-date Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

After first conducting a telephone questionnaire, most facilities would request you to pay a deposit to reserve 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.

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

Important: In case of a serious health issue, seek medical assistance locally, without delay.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab is not the same as emergency expert medical care. Rehab clinics offer standard detox services followed by therapeutic intervention.

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.

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