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

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

Get ready, and take notes from our top answers below, to finding the right addiction treatment near Townhead, Glasgow.

Ready? Let's get started:

How Is Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Different From Detox?

Detox and rehab in addiction care are usually provided as a package.

Rehab usually means the therapeutic treatment that addresses the bottled up psychological components of addiction, and takes place after the primary physical detox period.

  • Aftercare planning provided

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab should probably be avoided for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • Those who are unwilling to go the extra mile in understanding their drug or alcohol addiction and adhere to the recommended advice.
  • Individuals addicted to drugs or alcohol who are not yet ready to stop using.

What's The Right Duration Of Stay, For Alcohol Or Drug Addiction Treatment?

The ideal length will depend on your unique situation.

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

  • 7-10 days - Common detox of 7 to 10 days for alcohol or drug treatment, without therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Regular inpatient programme for primary detoxification as well as some therapy work.
  • More than 28 days - Standard stay including significant therapeutic time, and time to plan aftercare supports for the future.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Unless the addict starts treatment, it will be challenging to ascertain the exact duration of treatment needed. This is because being in a rehab clinic is the best time to monitor progress without the presence of drugs or alcohol.

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.

What Elements Of Drug/Alcohol Treatment Townhead Do I Focus On, For Lasting Recovery?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

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

Use the learnings you've had from experience of previous detoxes, or even previous rehab treatment, to help inform what you should tackle in treatment, where the focus should be, what triggers need underlying or additional work.

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

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. 

Be open and honest with staff, re previous usage, patterns of use, and recency of use.

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

Therapy Time

Focus on the cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling you receive since they can help you make tremendous headway into addictive patterns.

Relapse Prevention

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

In what areas of the recovery process do you feel exposed, and require greater support to overcome? Have you unearthed particular triggers that you feel need to be dealt with?

What Is The Success Rate Of Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

The win rate for detox itself, is tremendous at over 90%. 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.

It also becomes increasingly difficult for rehab clinics to keep in touch with former clients, over very long time periods, in order to track success or efficiency rates.

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

Rehab is a brief primary care process in supervised surroundings to help you reach the next phase of your recovery plan.

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

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.

For some, their weekly timetable will be maintained by a daily check-in with their sponsor and a few mutual aid meetings per 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.

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*.

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

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

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

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.


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.

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 Townhead Should I Expect To Be The Most Trying?

#1

Detox Symptoms

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.

During this time, make sure that the specialist handling your case knows about any kind of symptoms you may be experiencing to ensure an appropriate and painless detox process.

#2

Breaking Detrimental Social Ties

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

 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 From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

To make the psychological and emotional evolution from an addicted individual with dependence and co-dependence, to a recovery mindset, is not a walk in the park.

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.

 By doing this for an extended period of time, you will discover that it will add more value to the long-term recovery process.

Are There Any Common Patterns In Those Who Aren't Successful In Long Term Addiction Recovery?

  • Not requesting help or support when it's needed. Allowing stressors to occur when you don’t have enough resources.
  • 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.
  • 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 while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • An imbalance between expert assistance, and community assistance. Over-reliance on non-expert sources of assistance.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

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

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.

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.

Reducing alcohol use without professional help is a no-no and should not be done.

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

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

Do I Get Treatment Costs Reimbursed If I Relapse After Treatment?

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

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

Does this imply that you should shoulder the entire burden? No, it means that you should establish your own areas of  vulnerability in recovery, and seek out appropriate support.

Some clinics offer an additional stay if relapse occurs, but again, this varies, check with the prospective provider you're speaking with.

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

#1

What is your track record in dealing with cases similar to mine?

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

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

#4

Are there any aftercare provisions with your clinic?

#5

Is aftercare included in the overall cost?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

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

#8

Can I get copies of the most up-to-date Care Inspectorate inspection and Care Quality Commission reports, plus ratings?

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

What Happens When I Select A Rehab Clinic To Admit To?

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

Next, the admissions team would ask their personnel for medical permission to admit you and be admitted 24 to 48 hours later.

I/We Need Help Urgently, What Should I/We Do?

Important: If there is a severe emergency, it is recommended that you contact local trained medical personnel immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Rehab is not the same as emergency expert medical care. A rehab clinic can deal with routine requirements for detox, and therapeutic intervention thereafter.

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.
