It's easy to get overwhelmed searching for the right alcohol or drug addiction treatment near Headley Park. But answers *are* available.
Below, we've laid out our 19 most forthright answers, to unflinching questions about rehab near Headley Park:
This is the ultimate consumer guide for finding addiction treatment in Headley Park.
Let's get started.
Will Rehab Do Any Good?
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 will not work in a vacuum, or without your cooperation.
A lack of personal responsibility is the hallmark of addiction, and thus reclaiming responsibility for your own life is a cornerstone of recovery.
Rehab near Headley Park is not to be considered a "cure" that will completely resolve all addiction issues in your life.
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 Headley Park Work, Exactly?
Three stages can be identified as being part of the private rehab course, the first being the detox itself, followed by therapy and counselling to address the causes of addiction and then the aftercare element which seeks to engage with matters over the longer term.
This is what you should find in the first 7 days of alcohol/drug rehab ...
The first week consists of completing the physical detox and resting more than you usually do, and also taking your medication.
Factors which will dictate the length of the initial detox phase will include the degree and length of dependency as well as the individual’s history of addiction.
After the first seven days in rehab you should expect the following…
Once you have completed the detox, you’ll begin the therapeutic sessions with the help of the clinical team. The purpose of this is to help your understanding of the cause of your addiction, and it may take the form of group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, one-to-one counselling, or similar procedures.
Usually, residential programmes near Headley Park and the surrounding Bristol area are multi-faceted, and during these you share your experience with other clients, participate in various therapy sessions and do physical exercise, and a move back toward structure and order, in your daily routine.
The Headley Park clinics, in general, will inform their clients of the following day’s activities on the preceding night.
What should you expect in the last week of rehab?
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 help you move on from residential treatment back into life outside the clinic and give an opportunity for you to plan supports in advance, for addictive triggers you've identified during treatment.
Who Is Best Suited To Rehab?
Rehab is for those who are genuinely serious about long term recovery.
Such people have tried time and time again to quit their harmful use of alcohol or drugs and know there must be a way for them to succeed even though they’ve failed before – if only they had the right support.
The people who will get the most out of rehab will be willing to commit to the work involved but will need help to do so in a structured way, beginning with detox and following on with the proper therapy.
Only those who take responsibility for their own lives will gain from rehab, and the great benefits which follow.
Are There Outmoded Methods In Rehab, That I Should Avoid?
- Doing it yourself. The delusion that trying to get your life back on track without outside professional help, even though you know that help is available.
- 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.
- 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?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Headley 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.
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?
As long as everything is done correctly, you might expect to see initial signs of:
- You’ll find that it is much easier to fulfil the needs of the substance in ways which are positive rather than dysfunctional, and so you should plan for this.
- By taking care of these things you should find that your behaviour, modes of communicating and especially your emotional responses should all change, and this is a reflection that you needs are being addressed in a positive way, free of the addictive substance.
- When these behavioural changes occur, other major life factors have the breathing space to improve also, e.g. relationships, family life, work, etc.
For Those Entering Addiction Rehab For Their First Time, What Are 3 Things They Do Wrong?
(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) Overconfidence following a few therapeutic gains made, early in the process. Believing that one or two individual insights is equal to lasting recovery.
(iii) Not being fully equipped to comprehend future situations or events that could potentially trigger relapse.
What If Rehab Headley Park Doesn't Work?
If, following treatment, you relapse the likely explanations are:
(i) You failed to implement aftercare advice following treatment.
(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) Whilst still in treatment, actively engaging in aftercare planning, and actively following through on the supports given, to make sure you stay on track in sobriety.
(ii) Ensuring you prioritise therapy in aftercare, which will provide real support when you need it most.
In most cases, relapses are almost certainly due to omitting one of the above.
I Don't Have Any Support Or Family Members: Is Recovery Possible?
No two people are alike, and each person will have a different calibre of support when they begin their treatment.
Even without regular support from family, recovery from alcohol or substance addiction is possible.
I Did Not Succeed With Alcoholics Anonymous; Why Is Rehab Different?
Rehab is different to the AA approach, and this is how…
AA is a great resource to have, but AA and rehab are not the same thing.
Alcoholics Anonymous Headley Park has been responsible for a good deal of long term recovery success stories over the years.
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.
Those who have successfully completed a residential rehab programme often attend AA as part of their ongoing relapse prevention planning.
A good recovery can be produced by both rehab and AA, each together, or at different times, depending on circumstances.
Is AA Alone Likely To Lead To Long Term Recovery?
AA is a great help for anyone in recovery and is often seen as the light at the end of the tunnel.
However, AA cannot provide a structured therapeutic framework in which to address the underlying issues which cause addiction, nor do they offer any clinical support.
For this, look for clinical detox first, and then you can follow this with AA Headley Park meetings which are ideal as a way of supporting you in preventing relapse.
Is Ceasing My Addictive Behaviour Without Assistance Useful...Or Dangerous?
We must expressly advise against this.
Undergoing withdrawal alone and by yourself can carry with it serious clinical consequences.
Cardiovascular complications may ensue, together with blood pressure variations and it may result in life threatening symptoms without appropriate supervision.
**You must NOT attempt to undergo detox yourself, or any kind of DIY withdrawal method**.
What If I Can't Afford It?
If a full rehab programme is too much for your right now, here's another option.
Many clinics offer a detox-only programme, although 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.
Although the standard rehab stay is 28 days in total, we can suggest shorter stays if it is still clinically appropriate.
Ask about short term detox **only ** if you have adequate plans for support upon completion.
i.e. if a support plan were to be put in place ready to provide for your long term care and recovery.
Experience has shown that there is a risk of not being able to enjoy a full recovery if you don’t make plans for the support required after the short-term detox has completed.
Is There A Refund Policy For Rehab?
You should ask the clinic you are about to attend about its own refund policy, as each is different.
Generally speaking, most clinics will not offer a refund policy on the basis of future relapse, as the responsibility for that comes down to the individual.
How Do I Get Started In Treatment?
How Do I Go About Starting My Residential Treatment Right Away?
The majority of clinics are able to admit people within two days, assuming that all the medical checks are established together with an assessment that the treatment is suitable for the client.
