If you're looking for alcohol or drug addiction help near Tollcross, Glasgow - you'll already know how confusing the options can be.

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

If you've struggled to find the right questions to ask, meet our comprehensive guide to finding drug or alcohol addiction help in Tollcross, Glasgow, below.

Let's go.

How Does Rehab For Alcohol/Drug Misuse Differ From A Detox-Only Approach?

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.

Who Is Rehab NOT For?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Detoxers who routinely fall off the wagon, and have an alcohol/drug pattern they perpetually deny.
  • Individuals who are hesitant to make sense of their drug/alcohol addiction and stick to the subsequent recommendations provided.
  • Those who want to continue the pattern of denial and lack of responsibility, and want someone else to "do it all for them".

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

This is dependent on your individual needs.

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Tollcross 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.
  • 28+ days - Standard stay that consist of increased therapy sessions and coordinating for aftercare help.

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.

In the event of significant progress in the treatment centre after the 28 days have passed, one can leave the facility, although some people might stay for a bit longer.

Is There Anything Specific I Should Focus On, During Drug/Alcohol Rehab Tollcross, To Get Best Possible Results?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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.

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

Physical Detox

With the consultant psychiatrist or specialist at the rehab centre at your side, take part in discussing the most ideal detoxification path for your issue. 

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 Tollcross clinic.

Therapeutic Time

Try to take maximum advantage of the time you have in therapy, e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, and counselling work, as this is where the main psychological breakthroughs can be made, as addiction affects you personally, and your personal pattern of addiction expresses itself in your life.

Planning For Long Term Sobriety

It is important to evaluate everything you’ve learned from support groups, keywork discussions, and one-on-one sessions. 

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?

Does Alcohol & Drug Rehab Work, From A Statistical Perspective?

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. Those who begin detox in a supervised treatment centre are highly likely to finish.

In the long run, how a person fares in rehab is directly proportional to the effort they put in to the process.

In order to measure success metrics, it is now becoming more difficult for recovery centres to stay in contact with former clients over very long periods of time, as most patients are searching for promises regarding very long-term success rates.

It goes without saying that you are personally responsible for the success of your rehab process.

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 depends on a number of issues, including the duration of your recovery process, the number of supports, everyday triggers you experience at present, and the remaining work from therapeutic benefits gotten in treatment.

As part of their weekly timetable, some clients will have to have an everyday check-in with designated sponsors, group therapy, and several mutual aid sessions or calls per week.

Some clients will find it hard to be stable unless they complete group therapy several times per week, community meetings, consulting experts for unrelated health issues, plus getting lots of family support.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Nevertheless, it is essential to change your mindset.

In our experience, those who do well in long term recovery, i.e. 20-30+ years, are not focused upon how much time recovery takes from their lives, but have instead accepted that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

Recovery is not a series of "secret" steps that you undertake a few times, to be rewarded with long term sobriety.

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

Great 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.

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.

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

#1

Early Detox Symptoms

The first 48 to 72 hours can be traumatic since the mind and body of the person is in the process of adapting to the lessened substance intake.

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

Releasing Negative Social Influences

Clients with established links with loved ones or friends may at first find it challenging when they are cut off.

 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

Moving Beyond The Mindset Of Addiction

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.

But after someone stays a longer period in rehab, it can become less challenging.

It is advisable to view rehab not as a facility that is an end to some means, but as a time for learning from others in recovery with you.

 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 requesting help or support when it's needed. Giving stressors free reign over your mental health when your resources are limited.
  • Taking up a programme of out-patient treatment, while knowing very well that you will face external stressors in your daily life that will impede your progress.
  • Reverting to old patterns after treatment, leading to higher chances of relapsing.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • 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. 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.

How Can I Tell In Advance, If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Is Likely To Help Someone With My Pattern Of Addiction?

Even the worst addicts can change, through dedication and determination, especially with commitment to ongoing therapy work.

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

How Are AA And Rehab Different?

Residential Rehab Treatment v Alcoholics Anonymous Tollcross
Rehab
  • Rehab essentially involves services like relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic intervention under one roof, by one provider in a clinically regulated environment.
AA 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.

In private rehab, there is professional feedback on the whole detox programme, safe withdrawal, supervision of progress, all done in regulated surroundings.

Tapering off alcohol minus any professional aid can harm you and is not advisable.

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

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.

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.

This is highly unlikely since according to most clinics, the recovery process is largely in the hands of the client.

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.

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

#1

How experienced are you in detoxing clients with a history like mine?

#2

For my needs, what treatment length do you suggest?

#3

Is it possible to enrol for a brief stay, then extend it after I am in the programme?

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Are visits by loved ones permitted? 

#7

With COVID-19 ravaging the world, have you changed any part of your services?

#8

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

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

What Happens Immediately After I Sign Up For Rehab?

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 this point, the provider gets authorisation from their medical staff, and thereafter can normally admit you within a day or two.

Do Rehab Clinics Deal With Needs For Urgent Help Relating To Alcohol Or Drugs?

Important: In the event of a serious medical emergency, seeing a local healthcare professional is a must.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab is not a substitute for qualified emergency care. Rehab facilities can handle basic detox requirements plus therapeutic care afterwards.

Still, rehab clinics are not hospitals and they are usually not equipped to deal with complicated health issues such as liver problems and seizures.

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