Ready? Let's get started:

How Are Detox And Rehab Different?

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

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.

Detox-Only
  • Supervised detox

Is There Anyone Who Should Avoid Rehab Altogether?

Rehab can't be recommended for:

  • Serial alcohol/drug detoxers who have an established behavioural issue or trigger in their life they're not willing to relinquish.
  • Someone not ready to do the work required to understand their drug or alcohol addiction, take action on recommendations given, and supports offered.
  • People living with addictive behaviour who are not bothered by their life of denial, with no problem about letting other people put in all the work.

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

The appropriate duration in  a treatment programme depends on your personal circumstances and history of addiction.

Check out the following rough outline of treatment options available for Yorkhill and the greater Glasgow area:

  • 7-10 days - Typical detox-only stay for alcohol treatment; usually no therapy.
  • 14-28 days - Common inpatient programme for initial detoxification and some therapy.
  • 28+ days - Typical stay, incorporating considerable therapy and planning for the future’s aftercare services.

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.

Someone who feels well-resourced already, may be ready to leave drug or alcohol treatment after 28 days; others may take longer.

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

Setting Goals For Your Treatment

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

Use previous work in detox or rehabilitation to understand what areas need your focus, and the triggers that still need a lot of attention.

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

Detox From Alcohol Or Drugs

Don't shy away from talking honestly with the consultant psychiatrist or specialist  assigned to you, regarding the detox regimen with the best chance of working. 

Open up about past addictions, alcohol intake, and how recently you used.

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

Therapeutic Help

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.

Aftercare Planning

It pays to assess your progress from the support group sessions, therapy, keywork workshops and one-on-one discussions. 

In your recovery process, which aspects make you feel susceptible and demand for more focus to handle the troubles of daily life? Have you identified any mental health factors that trigger the need to use, that were absent before?

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

Over 90% of people who enrol for detox make it. It would be unusual for an individual to undergo prescribed detox in a supervised residential setting, and not complete the detox.

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.

Simply put, to succeed in staying sober after you have been through a private rehab, will greatly depend on your will to succeed and follow the teachings.

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.

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.

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.

quotation mark

KEY takeaway

Still, it doesn’t hurt to rethink your perspective on this question.

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 an ongoing practice of self-insight, self-acceptance, and surrounding oneself with active supports that can help all this happen.

Does Success In Recovery Mean Letting Go Of Old Habits?

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.


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 Yorkhill Struggle With?

#1

Reactions To 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.

In this phase, inform the specialists about your symptoms to ensure that the detox is suitably safe for you.

#2

Releasing Negative Social Influences

Individuals with deep family connections or friendships may at first have a hard time coping with the loss of connection.

 In some cases, these are connections with parties detrimental to the recovery process such as other alcohol users or substance dealers. Here the severing of these ties is for the better.

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

Changing The Mindset

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.

Nevertheless, the longer one stays in rehab, the easier it becomes.

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.

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

What Are The Reasons Some People Fail To Achieve Lasting Recovery From Drug/Alcohol Addiction?

  • Not asking for help or support when it is required. Not seeking support or assistance when experiencing a trigger situation.
  • 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.
  • Chronic lack of family or external support channels combined with recurrent stressor or trigger situations that were not prepared for, or were not anticipated.
  • 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. Too much dependence on sources of support that are not qualified.
  • The reluctance to say goodbye to a recognised trigger for addictive behaviour.

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

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.

When you admit that your life is in your own hands, follow instructions and embrace the resources and support systems necessary to help you in your recovery, odds are, that you will succeed.

How Are AA And Rehab Different?

Rehab Clinic Treatment .v. AA Yorkhill
Rehab Clinic Treatment
  • Rehab essentially involves services like relapse prevention, detox, and therapeutic intervention under one roof, by one provider in a clinically regulated environment.
AA & Mutual Aid 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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

To be on the safe side, check with the clinic re their refund policy before committing.

It goes without saying that you are ultimately in charge of your long-term recovery process, meaning it will be highly unlikely that you will be refunded should you relapse.

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

What 9 Questions Should I Ask Any Alcohol/Drug Rehab Clinic I'm Considering Near Yorkhill, Glasgow?

#1

Have you handled many clients with a drug/alcohol intake and case history like my own?

#2

What treatment duration do you suggest for my needs?

#3

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

#4

Do you provide aftercare or continuing care services?

#5

Are the aftercare services part of the final charges?

#6

Does the clinic let the next of kin attend for visits? 

#7

Due to COVID-19, are there any modifications to your policies or care?

#8

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

#9

Do you have a refund policy?

What Happens When I Call A Rehab To Book In?

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 here, the admissions team will request medical approval for your admission from their staff, and you would normally admit to treatment 24-48 hrs later.

What Should I Do If I Need Help Urgently?

Important: in the event of serious emergency, you must contact your local emergency department and access qualified medical care immediately.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Again, before contemplating some sort of alcohol therapy, *always* check with your qualified medical practitioner. This is a must.

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.

Nevertheless, if you have non-emergency need for detox and/or rehab, most standard rehab clinics can admit in 24-48 hours.
