This is the most detailed debriefing available on addiction treatment options in Filwood Park.
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.
At the point of crisis we have found that rehab is the best approach available among the primary care needs of people who are in active addiction. But, you should know that you also need to play an active part in this.
You will need to take back your own responsibility for your life as part of the recovery process.
Rehab near Filwood Park should not be considered a permanent "cure" that can fix all drug problems in your life immediately.
The dynamics of addiction have taken a long time to establish, and it will take time and understanding for them to be overcome.
You should know that all of this takes a good deal of active engagement and persistence.
It is only your first step on a long journey.
How Does A Rehab Programme Near Filwood Park 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.
Over the first seven days in alcohol/drug rehab you should expect the following…
The first week consists of completing the physical detox and resting more than you usually do, and also taking your medication.
This initial detox period, along with the history of addiction of the individual, can vary in length from one person to another, depending on frequency, recency, and amount of use.
What should you expect after the first week of rehab?
Once you have completed the detox, you’ll begin the therapeutic sessions with the help of the clinical team. The best way to proceed here may be group sessions or on an individual counselling basis, or both, as a means to unlock the reasons for your original addiction.
In general, residential programmes are quite diverse, and will see you taking part in mutual aid meetings, physical routines, sharing your experiences with others and undergoing physical exercise, and and transition towards regaining some structure and order in your routine.
The Filwood Park clinics, in general, will inform their clients of the following day’s activities on the preceding night.
In the last 7 days of rehab, here's what you can expect...
In the last 7 days, if not earlier, if your provider includes it, you should be planning out measures for relapse prevention, and aftercare supports.
These will assist you as you move from residential care back into the outside world and allow you to plan ahead to prevent any triggers which may cause a relapse.
Who Is Rehab For?
Rehab is designed for people who have committed themselves to full recovery.
This usually means they've been round in the circle of abusing alcohol or substances several times, seen and borne the negative consequences, and know there must be another way - but need help to achieve this.
Rehab will take commitment and effort from those who undergo the treatment, from detox through to the sessions of therapy and counselling that follow, and out into the sunlight of normal life again.
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.
Is There Anything That No Longer Works In Terms Of Rehab Treatment?
- Attempting to detox yourself and stop your addictive patterns of behaviour, even though the appropriate help and support is at hand when you need it most.
- Treatment programmes skewed to the extreme, in favour strictly of only one form of spiritual approach or outlook on recovery. 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 process-driven programme which will alienate the client and make them feel as if they are not being treated as a human being.
At the heart of recovery should be mutual support and a sense of community, with the communal respect that goes with it.
How Do I Set Myself Up For Success In Rehab?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Filwood Park Rehab Clinic?
All good clinics will send a booking acknowledgment to you prior to your stay, detailing all the things to bring with you.
Any good rehab clinic will send you details of everything you’ll need before starting your rehab residency.
What Are The Top 3 Changes In My Life, I Might See, During Or After Rehab?
As long as everything is done correctly, you might expect to see initial signs of:
- Plan for dealing with the need to fulfil your desires and wishes in healthier ways than a coping mechanism or addictive substance.
- 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 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) Fear at the prospect of taking the coping mechanism away, during the first phase of rehab.
(ii) The belief that a little success experienced during the early stages of recovery means that we're “cured”.
(iii) Not being fully equipped to comprehend future situations or events that could potentially trigger relapse.
Why Would Filwood Park Rehab Not Work?
If, following treatment, you relapse the likely explanations are:
(i) You did not make use of the support provided post-rehab.
(ii) A trigger event happened in the external world, that you didn't work on yet, during treatment.
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).
We find that people who tend to relapse will have unfortunately neglected these aspects of aftercare.
Is It Possible To Stay Sober/Clean Even Without Social Support?
You are among the millions of people in recovery across the world right now, each one with a different quality and history of support.
Even those people without a robust support network manage to recover from their drug or alcohol addiction, so it's possible for you too.
Alcoholics Anonymous Didn't Work For Me, How Is Rehab Different?
Yes, rehab is different to AA, and here’s how….
Alcoholics Anonymous is a tremendous resource to have in anyone's recovery, but AA and rehab are not mutually exclusive.
Long-term success has certainly been achieved over the years just by using AA Filwood Park.
Others have attended AA in the long term, but felt that certain elements of their recovery were missing.
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.
Mutual aid and rehab treatment co-exist very well together. Whilst they are often used in different ways, or at different parts of the journey, these details come down to each individual's experience, and the order they tackle their issues, along the way.
People quite often choose to attend the AA group meetings in addition to having completed the residential rehab.
A good recovery can be produced by both rehab and AA, each together, or at different times, depending on circumstances.
Why Can't I Just Attend Alcoholics Anonymous To Get Better?
Alcoholics Anonymous as a source of hope, courage, and a path toward sobriety.
However, Alcoholics Anonymous are not the people who are best able to provide clinical care and therapy, or to examine the triggers and reasons for your addiction in a way which will be best at preventing relapse.
For this, look for clinical detox first, and then you can follow this with AA Filwood Park 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 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.
**You should NEVER consider putting yourself through detox or cold-turkey alone**.
And If I Cannot Afford That?
Full rehab may be unreachable financially for some, so here's another option you may like to consider.
Though not the full programme, the detox-only route is available as a possibility. This is not usually widely advertised.
This isn’t for financial reasons alone, but because shorter programmes are often associated with less successful outcomes, in the longer term.
Here is what we recommend if you want a less expensive and shorter course.
Ask about short term detox **only ** if you have adequate plans for support upon completion.
...for example, a well-chosen and properly structured support plan including longer term help and therapy.
In our experience, we find that opting for a short-term detox without planning ahead for support afterward will only reduce your chances of a full and long-term recovery.
Do Rehab Clinics Provide A Refund Policy?
Refund policies will vary from clinic to clinic, be sure to ask before committing.
In general terms, most clinics do not refund fees if you relapse because the onus of responsibility lies with the client.
