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

Below, we've laid out the key need-to-knows, to narrow down the search and find drug or alcohol treatment which meets your needs for cost, location, and getting help fast, in Summerston, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

What Are The Detox And Rebab Options Available?

Generally, addiction detox and rehab services, go hand in hand.

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.

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Habitual alcohol/drug detoxers with addictive behaviours or triggers that they don’t want to accept.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • 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.

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

The time you will spend in a rehab centre is based on your individual case.

Look at the treatment options near Summerston and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • 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.

After twenty eight days have passed, if a person is in a better state, they can leave the treatment centre. Still, others can stay on if the rehab is not yet complete.

How Do I Make Best Use Of My Time, In Drug/Alcohol Rehab Treatment Summerston?

Care Plan

Have a honest approach to what you need to achieve out of rehab treatment. 

Use previous work in detox or rehabilitation to understand what areas need your focus, and the triggers that still need a lot of attention.

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

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

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. 

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

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

Therapeutic Time

It is true that people have particular addictive trends that rule over their lives. This is why it is advisable to concentrate on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling sessions to get some psychological wins.

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

You should not commit to an aftercare plan without first reflecting on all the wins you have garnered from all the sessions you have been involved in while in rehab. 

Where do you feel particularly vulnerable in your recovery process, and need more support to overcome everyday difficulties? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

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.

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 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 differ from individual to individual but the common issues include how long the recovery process has taken, the supports in your life, daily triggers in your life at the moment, and the work still to be done in relation to the therapeutic steps during treatment, among 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

Still, it doesn’t hurt to rethink your perspective on this question.

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*.

Being in recovery doesn’t mean that you follow some simple rules and voila!... you beat addiction.

Recovery is a continuous exercise that involves a lot of introspection, self-acceptance and having a supportive network around you.

What Aspects Of Life Need To Change, Dramatically, So That I Can 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 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.

A skilled mental health therapist can help you gain the insight needed to release a pattern, not through sheer force, but by understanding, and releasing an old way of achieving something and tackling the issue in a new way, for the first time.

What Are The Top 3 Most Difficult Elements Of Addiction Treatment Near Summerston, That I Should Be Prepared For?

#1

Reactions To 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.

This is a time to be vocal about your symptoms, with the professionals available, in order to maintain a detox that is both safe and comfortable.

#2

Redrawing Social Boundaries

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

 At times, we find that these connections are with drug dealers and addicts and when separation happens, it is a step in the right 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.

#3

Moving Beyond The Mindset Of Addiction

Succeeding in psychologically and emotionally switching from the addictive mental attitude that comprises irresponsible behaviour and dependence, to one of recovery, can be an uphill task.

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

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.

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.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • 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.
  • The wrong balance between specialist and non-specialist help and support. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

Is It Possible To Say In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

This doesn’t have a precise answer as it depends on the devotion that the client puts in the process, particularly in therapy.

When you admit that your life is in your own hands, follow instructions and embrace the resources and support systems necessary to help you in your recovery, odds are, that you will succeed.

What Are The Differences Between AA And Rehab?

Rehab Clinic Treatment .v. AA Summerston
Rehab Treatment
  • Rehab can be thought of as a clinically supervised treatment in residential surroundings that completes the primary care requirements of therapeutic intervention, detox, and prevention of relapse by one provider, under one roof.
AA Meetings
  • AA is a mutual aid and non-clinical environment where people gather to share their experiences and support each other.

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.

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 mandatory.

Will We Get A Refund If I/My Loved One Relapses?

Consult with the particular rehab you're considering, regarding their refund policy before entering their programme.

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.

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

What Should I Ask, When Vetting Treatment Clinics Near Summerston, Glasgow?

#1

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

#2

How long should I stay in the clinic?

#3

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

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

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

#8

Please send me the latest Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports and ratings.

#9

Does you clinic have a policy on issuing refunds?

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For Rehab?

In most cases, you will have an over-the-phone evaluation and most probably pay a deposit to get a reservation at the clinic. 

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.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

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. This is mandatory.

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.
