Will Rehab Treatment Actually Help Me In The Long Term?
Rehab could play a good part in helping you, *if* you allow it to help you, *and* you play an active role in facilitating this.
Along with the primary care needs for addiction, detox and therapy, rehab is the most structured method available for people to get well. But, rehab is only part of the way to success.
Addiction comes about through the absence of personal responsibility, so taking back responsibility for ones life is necessary in order to recover.
Rehab near Crofts End is not to be considered a "cure" that will completely resolve all addiction issues in your life.
It will always take a great deal of time and perseverance to deal with a habit that was a long time in the making.
You should know that all of this takes a good deal of active engagement and persistence.
Rehab should be considered the first stage in a journey which you choose to make.
What Exactly Happens During Rehab Crofts End?
The detox itself is the initial phase of the private rehab process, and it’s followed by therapy which deals with the causes of addiction and then counselling and care which looks to the future.
Over the first seven days in alcohol/drug rehab you should expect the following…
Your first seven days will see the detox completed and this will be accompanied by becoming accustomed to your new regime of medication.
This initial detox period will vary in duration from one individual to another, depending on frequency, recency, and amount of usage, together with the individual's history of addiction.
This is what you should find after the first 7 days of rehab ...
Upon completing your detox, you’ll be in the safe hands of the clinicians who will guide you through the therapeutic process. This could be group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, individual counselling, or similar, as a means to help you understand how you arrived in addiction, and how to get out.
Residential programmes near Crofts End and Bristol tend to be multi-faceted in nature, and these will mean you’ll be participating in complementary therapies, mutual aid meetings, physical routines, sharing your experiences with others, and and transition towards regaining some structure and order in your routine.
You’ll be told the previous evening what the following day’s events and activities are to be.
This is what you should expect to experience during the final 7 days of rehab ...
Help and support to prevent you from relapsing will be provided by your clinic in the final week.
These will help you move on from residential treatment back into life outside the clinic and give you the chance to plan ahead and get the support to thwart any triggers that may be the cause of your addiction.
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.
Rehab is for those who are ready to accept responsibility again for their own life, and reap the gains accordingly.Rehab is designed for those willing to undertake the responsibility for their own lives and who know that they will gain the benefits once this is achieved.
Aren't There Aspects Of Rehab That No Longer Work?
- Trying to quit your addictive behaviour alone and without the professional support which you nevertheless know exists.
- Programmes of treatment which are extreme in nature and which tend to be geared towards one form of therapy or approach. Clinics nowadays are mostly geared to a broad perspective to how best to treat addictive behaviours, without recourse to religious philosophy or other similar strictures.
- Any programme which is dogmatic and process-driven, which will tend to make patients feel that they’re numbers rather than people.
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.
What Is The Best Way To Ensure Rehab Is Successful?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Crofts End Rehab Clinic?
You will get a confirmation of your booking, and the clinic will also send you details of what you should bring with you when you start the treatment.
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 3 Main Areas Of Life Should I Expect Changes In, After Rehab?
If the underlying work is done, substantial changes could be achieved:
- You should plan for a life where you take care of your needs in ways which are healthier than before and without the need for the thing that held you in its addictive grip.
- In understanding all these disparate but connected elements, your behaviour, your emotions and the way you interact with people should all change for the better, and – crucially – without any need of the substance which you were previously addicted to.
- When these changes in your behaviour take place you’ll find that there’s ample room for other things to improve also, such as improvements in family life, your work, etc.
Tell Me The Top 3 Errors I Should Avoid When Entering Addiction Rehab?
(i) The thought of being deprived of the addictive substance during the detox stage, leading to a wish to cancel the whole rehab treatment.
(ii) The erroneous belief that success has been achieved in long term recovery when only small/initial gains have been made.
(iii) The risk of relapsing due to improper preparation for, or misreading of, trigger events which present themselves after the rehab has been completed.
What Are The Chances Of Crofts End Rehab Failing?
A few specifics often lie underneath potential relapses after completing rehab:
(i) For whatever reason, you didn’t make use of any of the follow-up help and support resources after treatment completed.
(ii) You were't able to understand enough about your own personal triggers, during treatment.
Help yourself to safeguard against these circumstances by:
(i) While in the rehab process, participate in any planning for aftercare whenever it is an option for you; this will increase the chances that you don’t succumb to triggers after you come out of rehab.
(ii) Making continuing therapeutic care a priority in your aftercare plan, to ensure you have active support, when you do experience triggers (this is inevitable).
In our experience, those who relapse repeatedly over time, have almost always missed one of the above elements.
Is It Possible To Stay Sober/Clean Even Without Social Support?
Every one of the huge number of people in recovery at any one time will have a different level of support as they start their rehab.
The facts show that even people lacking in a strong support network find drug/alcohol recovery possible, and so can you.
I Did Not Succeed With Alcoholics Anonymous; Why Is Rehab Different?
Rehab is different to the AA approach, and this is how…
AA is not the same as rehab.
In fact, people have reported long-term recovery success just with AA Crofts End alone.
Other people have reported, however, that there was something missing by using AA alone.
In hindsight, it may be that the AA meetings, which lack the one-to-one aspect of rehab, failed to fully address the psychological triggers of addiction.
Residential rehab and mutual aid do not have to be mutually exclusive, and work very well together, in sequence, or, in some rehab programmes, together.
People who complete the residential rehab requirements do quite often attend AA later on as part of their relapse prevention measures.
Both programmes, in fact, provide very good foundations for full recovery, and may be used in any combination which is suitable for the individual.
Is Recovery Possible By Attending AA Meetings Alone?
AA is a great help for anyone in recovery and is often seen as the light at the end of the tunnel.
But medical detoxes are not the province of Alcoholics Anonymous, and it is not their role to provide in-depth clinical therapy which addresses the causes of your addiction.
For this, look for clinical detox first, and then you can follow this with AA Crofts End meetings which are ideal as a way of supporting you in preventing relapse.
Is It Wise To Just Stop My Substance Abuse Without Outside Help?
We don’t consider this to be a good move at all.
Withdrawal without the expert help of experienced and qualified clinicians is extremely risky and we explicitly advise against this.
Dangerous medical risks include heart attack and the dangers which are always associated with seizures and fits.
**You must never attempt withdrawal or any detox without suitable clinical support**.
And If I Cannot Afford That?
If a full rehab programme is too much for your right now, here's another option.
There is sometimes a shorter programme which involves only completing the initial detox, although not available in all cases.
However, the success rates for these shorter courses can be lower than with the longer more established programmes.
It usually takes 28 days for the full residential course; but we can recommend an alternative if that suits your pocket at the moment.
You can ask about short-term detox, **but only** if support is planned for your continued recovery on the other side.
...such as a well-organised support plan with a sponsor for your long term recovery.
Attempting to arrange a short-term detox, without these supports already in place, increases risk of relapse, and may considerably lower the chances of long-term recovery success, in our experience.
Is There A Refund Policy For Rehab?
Each clinic will operate their own refund policies, so ask before your course begins.
You will find that most clinics will not offer a refund in cases where a relapse has taken place after a certain amount of time, as the cause of such a relapse is almost always a matter of individual behaviour.
