Will Rehab Help Me On My Bigger Picture Journey Of Recovery?
Provided that you do not expect everything to be done for you, rehab should be beneficial for you.
For those suffering from addiction, detox followed by a well-managed rehab stay is the way forward in to recovery. But, you should know that you also need to play an active part in this.
Reclaiming responsibility for yourself is necessary to recovery, as it is likely that lack of this is what forms the basis of addiction in the first place.
You should know from the start that rehab in Crofts End is not some kind of magic cure-all which will take away all addictive impulses.
The dynamics of addiction have taken a long time to establish, and it will take time and understanding for them to be overcome.
All this requires patience, persistence, and constructive engagement.
It is only your first step on a long journey.
How Does A Rehab Programme Near Crofts End Work, Exactly?
Private rehab typically comprises three stages, consisting of the detox followed by help with psychological aspects of the addiction and then aftercare which seeks to provide a basis for life in the future.
This is what you should find in the first 7 days of alcohol/drug rehab ...
The first 7 days are usually spent completing physical detox, resting more than normal, and following advice for prescribed medication.
Everyone is different, so the length of the detox initially will vary depending on the depth of dependency, how recent the dependency has taken hold, and amount of usage.
After the first 7 days, here's what you can expect...
Once you have completed the detox, you’ll begin the therapeutic sessions with the help of the clinical team. It is important for you to understand why you became addicted in the first place, so you’ll be taking part in group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or one-on-one counselling.
Crofts End and Bristol Residential programmes are, as a whole quite diverse, and you’ll be sharing your experiences with the other clients, participating in physical routines and in complementary therapy sessions and mutual aid meetings, And gradually you’ll sense a shift back towards an ordered and structured life.
You’ll be told the previous evening what the following day’s events and activities are to be.
In the last 7 days of rehab, here's what you can expect...
In this final week the clinic will put in place measures which will be designed to help prevent you from relapse.
You’ll be helped, in this way, back towards your life outside residential care and at this stage you are able to look ahead to plan for the support you may need to prevent succumbing to the addictive triggers which may cause relapse.
Who Is Best Suited To Rehab?
Rehab is for those who are genuinely serious about long term recovery.
In practice, people will have been trapped in a cycle of alcohol or drug abuse on multiple occasions, have tried and failed to recover, and seek the help to get their lives back on track.
Rehab is for those ready to do the work involved, but need the help to physically feel better, detox, and get the therapy insights needed to move forward productively.
People who fully understand that they must be responsible for their own lives will be successful in this undertaking, and who fully commit to it.
Is There Anything That No Longer Works In Terms Of Rehab Treatment?
- Going it alone. Believing that even though although external support channels are available, they are not required.
- Programmes of treatment which are extreme in nature and which tend to be geared towards one form of therapy or approach. The majority of rehab clinics favour a broader approach which takes into account all routes to recovery and don’t insist that religious adherence is required.
- A clinical programme that is driven almost entirely by process, can lead to individuals feeling like "just a number".
The core of a successful rehab programme will treat the client as an individual and part of a community of people who have similar issues and share a common goal in making a full recovery.
To Ensure My Rehab Success... What Should I Be Doing?
What Are The Things You Should Plan For, In Crofts End Rehab?
All good clinics will send a booking acknowledgment to you prior to your stay, detailing all the things to bring with you.
All the items you’ll need to bring in with you should be sent to you prior to admission, and any reputable rehab clinic will do this in plenty time.
What Are The Top 3 Changes In My Life, I Might See, During Or After Rehab?
If all goes according to plan you might expect to see signs of:
- As long as you’ve accepted what the substance is doing to you, you’ll find that it’s easier to fulfil your need for this in healthier ways, and you should plan for this accordingly.
- By dealing with all of these things, in turn, you should find that you emotional life, the way that you behave and interact with other people will be brighter and more positive, and without the need for your addictive behaviour.
- When these behavioural changes occur, other major life factors have the breathing space to improve also, e.g. relationships, family life, work, etc.
What Are 3 Things New Rehab Clients Do Wrong When Going Into Addiction Treatment For The First Time?
(i) Fear at the prospect of taking the coping mechanism away, during the first phase of rehab.
(ii) Overconfidence following a few therapeutic gains made, early in the process. Believing that one or two individual insights is equal to lasting recovery.
(iii) The failure to properly take into account, and prepare for, any unexpected situation which could trigger a relapse back into addiction, and without the support and backup to prevent this from happening.
How Likely Is It That Crofts End Rehab Will Not Work For Me?
A few specifics often lie underneath potential relapses after completing rehab:
(i) You did not make use of the support provided post-rehab.
(ii) Your understanding of the psychology of what causes your addictive behaviour was not yet advanced enough; sometimes this just takes time to work through.
Make yourself less vulnerable to these events by:
(i) Engaging with the therapeutic and aftercare planning throughout; and taking action on what is being offered to you; your chances of successfully staying clean may depend on this.
(ii) Keep your contact with your aftercare support strong, as this will be much needed when you find yourself in a potential trigger situation (it is bound to happen).
In most cases, relapses are almost certainly due to omitting one of the above.
Can Recovery Work For Me? I Have No Family Or Friends Support
No two people are alike, and each person will have a different calibre of support when they begin their treatment.
You need to remember that even those people without a good support network continue to recover successfully.
I Did Not Succeed With Alcoholics Anonymous; Why Is Rehab Different?
If AA didn’t work for you, we assure you that rehab is different; here’s how…
AA is not the same as rehab.
There have been many success stories with people using only AA Crofts End to resolve their issues.
Some people have said that certain parts of their recovery were missing, having only attended AA over the years.
This tends to be related to psychological drivers of addiction which are undiscovered in a mutual aid environment, and need focussed one-to-one therapeutic help, to make progress on.
*Both* rehab and mutual aid, such as AA, or SMART recovery, are beneficial, especially when used at different times or for different purposes, in any one person's recovery pathway.
People who complete the residential rehab requirements do quite often attend AA later on as part of their relapse prevention measures.
A good recovery can be produced by both rehab and AA, each together, or at different times, depending on circumstances.
Isn’t It Sufficient Just To Attend AA?
Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are a wonderful resource in recovery and a source of inspiration, hope and the power of the community.
But AA do not provide clinical detoxes or professional therapy into the underlying causes of addiction, or accountability in a structure recovery plan.
You can indeed reap the benefits of AA meetings near Crofts End and the group support that they bring, but first you do need to undergo the residential clinical rehab, including the important detox stage at the start of the programme.
Is It Alright To Spontaneously Stop Taking Drugs Or Alcohol By Myself And Call That Success?
We must expressly advise against this.
Trying to do this by yourself carries with it some grave medical concerns and we really advise against it.
There are a multitude of risks associated with this, including heart issues and convulsions/seizures.
**Proper medical supervision must always be close at hand during any detox or withdrawal**.
I’m Not Sure I Can Afford Treatment
If a complete treatment programme is a financial challenge right now, there are other options.
Though not widely advertised, many centres can provide a detox-only alternative.
However, the success rates for these shorter courses can be lower than with the longer more established programmes.
A standard stay at a rehab clinic is usually 28 days. Here's what we recommend if you feel like budget is too tight right now.
Shorter detox programmes are available, **but only** if there are adequate support structures in place for when you complete this.
i.e. if a support plan were to be put in place ready to provide for your long term care and recovery.
Going in for a detox without having planned support ahead will risk a relapse and hence lower your chances of a full recovery.
How Do Clinics Approach Their Rehab Refund Policy?
Each clinic will operate their own refund policies, so ask before your course begins.
Any refunds given are not provided on the basis of a client relapsing, as long term success is a matter of individual responsibility.
How Do I Actually Sign Up For Rehab?
