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

Maybe we can be your guide.

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 Whiteinch, Glasgow.

Let's go.

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

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

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

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab is NOT advisable for:

  • Chronic alcohol/drug detoxers with a recognised habit or trigger that they still hold on to.
  • People who are unenthusiastic about recovery and also unwilling to embrace the support and help laid on the table.
  • Individuals content to live in denial about their mental health and continued irresponsible behaviour.

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.

Here is a rough guideline to treatment options for Whiteinch 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 - Normal inpatient programme for first detox session and some therapy work.
  • 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.

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 Should I Make A Point Of Doing, During Rehab Whiteinch?

What Do You Want Out Of Treatment?

Be transparent about what you hope to achieve in the rehab centre. 

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.

Do your best to find an addiction treatment programme near Whiteinch which has a specialist assigned to you personally, as long as you are there.

Physical Detox

After admission, take an active part in the conversation with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist before committing to the detox procedure that you will undergo. 

It is vital to be transparent to the staff about how often you use, alcohol intake, and the last time you used/drank.

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

Therapy Insights

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.

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 what areas of your recovery process are you particularly vulnerable, and need bolstering, to tolerate the ups and downs of day to day life? 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?

Nearly every individual who starts detox, successfully completes. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

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

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.

Even after receiving superior therapy services from a private rehab, whether or not you will be successful all boils down to your effort.

Rehab is a short-term, primary care treatment, to get you on the next step of your journey to healing.

How Much Will My Weekly Routine Change, 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.

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.

For other to find a firm footing, they will have to attend group therapy several times a week, see professional health practitioners to deal with other complications, gets tons of support from people around them and attend mutual aid sessions.

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

Instead, it is a gradual process of personal discovery and evaluation, accepting yourself and being in the company of supportive systems that will make it easier.

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

Great 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 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.

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

#1

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.

By speaking out regarding symptoms during this period, you will enable your specialist to come up with a more comfortable detox plan.

#2

Releasing Negative Social Influences

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

 In some instances, where the social group consists of those in active addiction, such as dealers and other users, this can be a move in a positive direction.

For some individuals who are used to support from family and loved ones, it can be stressful leaving them and getting into the clinic. This is why there should be a discussion with the clinic regarding visits and communication with family.

#3

Emotional Transformation

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.

Although this usually becomes easier with longer stay times in rehab.

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.

 The longer you spend in treatment, the more you will gain in your recovery journey.

What Are The Most Common Reasons For Failure In Recovery Or Alcohol/Drug Rehab?

  • Refusing to ask for assistance when necessary. Allowing stressors to happen while being under-resourced.
  • Undertaking an out-patient recovery programme although you still have to contend with stressful factors in the outside world, that limit your progress.
  • Returning to an old pattern, coping mechanism, or way of being, following treatment, that increases likelihood of a scenario leading to relapse.
  • Missing support systems such as family, combined with constant stress and trigger circumstances that were not expected.
  • A bad initial experience while in rehab or treatment which subsequently makes leads to the belief that rehab won't work.
  • An imbalance between professional and non-professional assistance and intervention. Over-dependence on unqualified assistance.
  • The hesitation to leave behind some destructive habits that trigger drug or alcohol use.

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

This is difficult to predict since even the most extreme histories of addiction can be turned around, by someone who is determined, and dedicated enough, especially in the therapy elements of rehab.

Broadly speaking, if you are willing to accept help, willing to follow directions, accept that your life is your responsibility, and are prepared to seek out the required resource and support to help you recover, your chances of lasting success can increase.

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.

If there is no professional management of the symptoms, there are higher chances of arising health issues like heart and liver complications, seizures, blood pressure problems, and others.

Before enlisting in an alcohol treatment programme, make sure that you get your doctor’s opinion. This is a must.

Do Clients Who Relapse Receive A Refund?

Always get clear guidance regarding refunds before confirming a booking.

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

Does this mean that you are responsible for all the work? No. In as much you have to put in some work, it is recommended that you look for vulnerabilities in your own recovery and actively ask to be helped.

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

What Are 9 Essential Questions To Ask A Potential Treatment Provider Near Whiteinch, Glasgow?

#1

What is your experience level in detoxing someone with my alcohol/drug intake and history?

#2

Suggest a treatment duration that suits my needs?

#3

Can I admit for a shorter duration initially, then extend my stay once in the clinic?

#4

Please elaborate on options for relapse prevention?

#5

Do you include the aftercare fees in the overall billing?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

What changes have you made to your service as a result of Covid-19?

#8

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

#9

What is your policy on refunds?

Is There An Admission Process To Get Booked In To 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. 

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.

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

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

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, *always* consult your local qualified medical professional before considering any form of alcohol treatment. To be on the safe side, this is absolutely necessary.

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.

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.
