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 Woodlands, Glasgow.

Let's go.

Is Alcohol/Drug Detox Different From Rehab?

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

Rehab can be described as the therapeutic component of residential treatment and it takes care of the subconscious psychological aspects of addiction.

Who Should NOT Try Rehab?

Rehab is NOT for:

  • Detoxers with deeply-embedded behavioural problems or a maintaining cause, fuelling their alcohol/drug problem, that they are reluctant to let go of.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • People with no qualms about continuing with their destructive behaviour and not ready to personally pull up their sleeves and help themselves.

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

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

Look at the treatment options near Woodlands 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 - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • 28 days and above - Normal stay length, encompasses numerous therapy sessions and the chance to schedule post-rehab relapse prevention.

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.

If an individual feels better after 28 days in the treatment centre, they may depart, but many stay beyond this.

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

Planning Your Care During Your Stay

Have realistic expectations regarding your stay in alcohol/drug rehab. 

From past detox and rehab experiences, try to come up with a deliberate approach in your care plan, that overcomes previous setbacks and deals with emotional triggers.

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

Physical Detox

Take an active role in discussion with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist, following your admission to rehab, when agreeing the detox protocol you'll undergo. 

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.

Keep in mind that you have to give accurate information, as it will be crucial in deciding what kind of detox programme you will be put on.

Therapy 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 The Future

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? What triggers have you discovered that need attention, that you weren't aware of before?

How Likely Am I To Achieve Long Term Recovery, After Alcohol & Drug Rehab?

More than 90% of people in detox successfully complete that part of the programme. Generally, individuals who embrace detox in controlled environments, do finish the process.

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

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.

How Much Will My Weekly Routine Change, After Drug/Alcohol Rehab?

This is dependent on a number of factors such as the point you are at in your journey of recovery, your existing supports, daily triggers you have to deal with, plus the remaining benefits from the therapeutic work during treatment.

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

Other will only make it after multiple mutual aid sessions, several group therapy sessions, a strong family support network, and consulting other specialists to deal with different health issues, among others.

KEY TAKEAWAY

However, a little change of perspective could be useful here.

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

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

Good 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.


It doesn't mean that we must smile and endure immense emotional tension to release the urge to drink or consume drugs, but rather to realise the true underlying causes, in a clinical setting.

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 Three Things People Entering Rehab Treatment Near Woodlands Struggle With?

#1

Early Detox

The initial 48-72 hours of detox can be the most trying, physically and emotionally, as the body and mind adjust to reduced substance intake, and detox begins.

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

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.

In circumstances where genuine support systems may be interfered with, there can be a middle point where visitation and communication channels with these connections are established to make the stay at the clinic more bearable.

#3

Moving From Addiction To Recovery, Psychologically

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.

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.

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

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

  • Failing to ask for support when the situation calls for it. Allowing things that stress you to take over your life while you are seriously under-resourced.
  • Attempting to complete an out-patient programme for recovery but external life stressors or events negate progress made, between sessions.
  • Going back to old ways of coping after treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapsing.
  • Non existent support networks such as family, fused with stressors and trigger situations.
  • 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 expert assistance, and community assistance. Extreme reliance on layman or community-based support systems.
  • Refusal to do away with past known triggers for drug or alcohol addictions.

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

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

By accepting to be helped, following the directives given, acknowledging that you’re responsible for your own life and seeking the needful resources and support, you will significantly enhance the chances of recovering.

Others Have Suggested I Taper Down On My Own, And Don't Need Help - Is That Correct?

When you choose private rehab services, you will be in an expertly supervised setting that will make the detox process much simpler, including monitoring your withdrawal, progress, and symptoms.

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

With no professional input and monitoring of symptoms, the likelihood of health issues like cardiovascular and liver complications, blood pressure issues, seizures, and many more, increases significantly.

It goes without saying that you should always see your qualified doctor prior to entering alcohol treatment. This is a must.

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.

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.

But this is not an indication that everything is up to you, without help, but that you must pinpoint the areas that you are vulnerable in, and seek support.

Some rehab facilities include an extension, should a client relapse, but to be on the safe side, it is better to confirm.

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

#1

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

#2

How long do I have to take the treatment?

#3

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

#4

What kind of aftercare service do you offer clients?

#5

Is aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

#6

Are family members allowed to visit? 

#7

Has COVID-19 affected service provision?

#8

Could you give me a copy of the current inspection and ratings Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate?

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

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. 

After the provider has gotten consent for admission from the medical team, they can proceed to admit you to the facility; a process that usually takes 1-2 days.

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

You can never substitute rehab for competent medical care. Rehab facilities can handle basic detox requirements plus therapeutic care afterwards.

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.

But if your problem is not emergency based, you can be admitted within 24 to 48 hours.
