Trying to find the right drug/alcohol treatment near Tollcross, Glasgow can begin to feel like your going round in circles.

Maybe we can help you navigate.

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 Tollcross, Glasgow.

Let's begin:

Detox v Rehab - Are Both Necessary?

Usually, in residential addiction treatment, rehab and detox are delivered together.

Rehab refers to the therapeutic elements of a stay in treatment, that tackle the underlying psychological components of addiction, and usually occurs after the initial physical detox stage.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab is not the best choice for those listed below:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • People with no qualms about continuing with their destructive behaviour and not ready to personally pull up their sleeves and help themselves.

What's The Ideal Treatment Length For A Stay In Drug Or Alcohol Rehab?

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

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Tollcross and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - A week to ten days - regular detox - alcohol or drug treatment stay, usually minus therapy
  • 14-28 days - Regular simple stay for preliminary detoxification and several therapy sessions.
  • 28+ days - 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.

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.

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

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

Make clear your expectations of the whole rehab programme. 

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.

Detox

With the help of the consultant psychiatrist or professional at the detox centre, make sure that you’re involved in selecting the most suitable detox regimen. 

It is in your best interest to speak the truth about patterns of drug and alcohol intake, former periods of use, and the most recent use.

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

Therapeutic Help

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.

Relapse Prevention

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. 

In your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? What triggers have you discovered that need attention, that you weren't aware of before?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. It makes sense that people who start detox in a supervised programme complete the regimen.

Success rates of rehab, in the long term, will vary, since the individual themselves is responsible for their long-term recovery.

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.

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 specialist environment; to assist you to the next stage of your long term recovery journey.

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

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.

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

Nonetheless, it pays to look more closely here.

From what we have observed, clients with lasting success are those who have acknowledged that it is not about how long recovery work takes, but instead that recovery is a *lifestyle choice*.

Recovery isn’t a one-time process that you go through, and end up being sober for the rest of your life.

Rather, recovery is a journey of self-assessment, accepting your weaknesses and strengths, plus incorporating support systems that will work for you.

What Do I Have To Give Up, To Become Sober?

Excellent question.

For others who have experienced the same scenario, in most cases, they have come to terms with letting go of a part of them that was locked up in a cycle of addiction.


This does not mean we have to grin and bear a tremendous amount of emotional stress in order to release the need to drink or misuse substances, but instead seek to understand, in a therapeutic environment, the real reasons we indulge in these behaviours and what we're trying to gain 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 Parts Of Rehab Treatment Near Tollcross Should I Expect To Be The Most Trying?

#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.

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

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

 But when these connections comprise of parties directly involved in drug or alcohol abuse such as sellers and other addicts, cutting links is recommended.

For others, where loved ones offer genuine support, this may be difficult, and it can be worth discussing with the admissions team, before entering a clinic, what the family/communication/visit policies are, to help plan ahead of time, and minimise this discomfort.

#3

The Mental Shift From Dependence To Responsibility

Transitioning both emotionally and psychologically from the addictive mindset which involves chaos, dependence and co-dependence can prove difficult.

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

Think of rehab itself as not just a place and time to achieve certain outcomes, but also a time to absorb the attitudes, and mindsets, of recovery, from those around you, on the same journey.

 As you do this for a long period, you will realise that the long-term gains can be spectacular.

What Patterns Tend To Result In Failed Attempts At Recovery, That I Should Avoid?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Getting in an out-patient recovery programme but having to cope with external stressors that negate your gains on a daily basis.
  • Reverting to old patterns after treatment, leading to higher chances of relapsing.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A poor first experience in treatment/rehab/mutual aid with one particular source, which later leads to a (mistaken) long term belief that "treatment/rehab doesn't work."
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • By being reluctant to get rid of habits that trigger old drug or alcohol habits.

How Do I Predict If Alcohol/Drug Rehab Will Work For Me?

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.

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

How Is Rehab Different To Tapering 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.

Decreasing your alcohol intake on your own can be dangerous; always seek professional help.

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. There can be no exceptions to this, to ensure your safety.

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

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

Essentially, very few clinics can offer refund after you relapse because long-term recovery is the responsibility 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.

What Do I Ask, To Make Sure The Clinic I'm Speaking To Near Tollcross, Glasgow, Is A Good Match?

#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

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

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#8

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

#9

What is your refund policy?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

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. 

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

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

Important: When a medical emergency occurs, you are advised to seek local medical assistance urgently.

KEY TAKEAWAY

It's vital to consult your regular medical professional before registering for any kind of alcohol treatment. This is mandatory.

Rehab facilities cannot take the place of hospitals since they lack the advanced equipment and trained staff to deal with any arising issues like liver decomposition and seizures.

What if your detox or rehab case is not an emergency? In this case, you can gain admission in many clinics within one or two days.
