Around Glasgow, there’s a large number of people suffering from either a drug addiction, alcohol problem, or sometimes both. Unfortunately, this means services are stretched extremely thin, so if you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab around the Glasgow area, then Action Rehab can help.
We’re experts in finding drug and alcohol rehab for people with addictions across the UK, and we can often get you admitted in as little as 48 hours, so you don’t have to wait any longer. All you have to do is pick up the phone and you can find the right treatment to suit your needs.
Finding drug and alcohol rehab in Glasgow
While Glasgow is a great city, nobody can deny that there are problems with addiction in the area. The statistics speak for themselves, Glasgow often tops government studies about addiction rates, and there are on average three deaths a day in the city that are due to drugs. Unfortunately, because the number of people with addiction is so high, it’s hard to get NHS treatment. That’s why many people thinking about rehab in Glasgow will call Action Rehab instead.
Whether you have an addiction to drugs or alcohol, Action Rehab offers a place to finally get the support you need. We can find rehabilitation centres that are close to your home, or further away if you need a break from everyday life, so you get the treatment you need.
Do I have an addiction?
Many people start to look for alcohol and drug rehab in Glasgow because they have reached the point where they suspect they might have an addiction. No two addictions are the same, although many follow the same pattern, so you may be wondering whether you need to go to a rehab clinic. When you call Action Rehab, we can carry out an initial assessment over the phone to discuss whether you need treatment and what might work best for your situation.
There can be a number of signs that you have an addiction. If you’re hiding how much you drink or use drugs, are using more and more of these substances just to feel normal, or have tried to stop and experienced withdrawal symptoms, then these can all be signs of a problem.
Action Rehab often hears from concerned loved ones who are friends or family of those with drug and alcohol addictions. Loved ones will often notice signs such as mood swings, dishonest behaviour or personality changes in the people they know and will be keen for them to go into residential treatment. While we can’t physically force anyone to get help, if you call Action Rehab, we can talk you through the options and discuss what we can do for your family member.
Can I put off treatment until a more convenient time?
Many people with addictions are aware, deep down, that they have a problem, but the thought of going to a treatment programme may be too scary to contemplate. They may often sink deeper into denial, which will allow them to keep drinking or using drugs, despite the impact on their health and well-being.
People with addictions will often make excuses as to why they can’t go into residential rehab or attend support groups, whether it’s work or family commitments.
Unfortunately, delaying rehab never usually ends well. Addiction is a disease, and like any disease, if it’s not treated then it’s likely to get worse. Many addicts wait until they hit rock bottom before they address their substance misuse. This can come in the form of a health scare, relationship breakdown or job loss. But you don’t have to wait for things to get worse, you can get help today through a number of treatment services.
What are my options for rehab?
When you contact Action Rehab about drug and alcohol rehab in Glasgow, you’ll be given a number of treatment options to suit your needs.
Many people simply want to go through a drug or alcohol detox, then return home to continue treatment. We can sometimes find you a clinic that offers this kind of treatment, but would recommend a minimum stay of 10 days, so you get the full benefit of a detox.
In general, most treatment centres will require you to stay with them for a 28-day programme. This may sound like a lot but completing a month in rehab will give you the best possible chance of long-term success. This is because you can go through intensive therapy and spend time away from home reflecting on negative behavioural patterns. While some providers will offer options such as outpatient rehab, in our experience, residential stays are the best for people with addictions.
Can I get help after rehab?
When you leave rehab, a care plan is put in place, so you still have plenty of support when you get home. There are many Glasgow drug and alcohol support groups that can be great be for people just out of rehab and can keep you on track along your journey.
The first year after rehab is often the toughest, so it’s important to find a programme for you that has support even once you’ve completed it.
