Below, we've laid out our 19 most forthright answers, to unflinching questions about rehab near Horfield:
This is the primary guidebook for finding drug or alcohol rehab help near Horfield.
Let's dive in.
Rehab Won't Help. Change My Mind.
Provided that you do not expect everything to be done for you, rehab should be beneficial for you.
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.
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 Horfield is not some kind of magic cure-all which will take away all addictive impulses.
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 is just the beginning.
How Does A Rehab Programme Near Horfield Work, Exactly?
Private rehab is typically a 3-stage overall process, of initial detox, therapeutic help with underlying psychological issues of addiction, followed by aftercare planning, which provides support and resources for 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.
No two people are alike, so the time it takes for the detox phase to last will depend on things like the length of dependency, the history of addiction and the degree to which the dependency has taken hold of the body.
This is what you should find after the first 7 days of rehab ...
After initial detox is complete, the clinical team will invite you to begin taking part in therapeutic sessions. 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.
Horfield and Bristol Residential programmes are, as a whole quite diverse, and will see you taking part in mutual aid meetings, physical routines, sharing your experiences with others and undergoing physical exercise, and a gradual return to the kind of ordered life that may be regarded as normal for most people.
Most Horfield clinics will set you daily activities which you’ll be allocated the night before, detailing when and where these are to be.
What should you expect in the last week of rehab?
Help and support to prevent you from relapsing will be provided by your clinic in the final week.
This is designed to help you and guide you towards a normal life outside of the residential system and allow you to plan ahead to prevent any triggers which may cause a relapse.
Who Is Rehab For?
Those who are genuinely serious about getting back their lives, relationships, families, and children, are the people who will get the most out of rehab.
This generally means that they have been round many times in the circle of alcohol or drug abuse, seen and borne the harmful effects, and know that there must be another way-but need support to do this.
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.
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.
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. Most clinics and centres have now accepted a wider perspective on the underlying principles of recovery, and do not insist you adopt specific religious philosophies or similar.
- An approach which is doomed to failure at worst will be one which depersonalizes individuals.
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.
How Can I Succeed In Rehab?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Horfield Rehab Clinic?
Reputable addiction clinics will give you a booking confirmation, including a list of what items to bring to rehab when admitting.
Ask the admissions team you're dealing with for this, if they do not provide it.
In What 3 Areas Of My Life Should I See Noticeable Change, Following Treatment?
As long as you put in the work, significant changes could be expected:
- 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 understanding and taking care of these elements, behavioural changes, patterns of communication, and emotions should change, reflecting that basic needs are being met in a functional way, without the presence of the substance.
- Many find that relationships, family life and the world of work are also improved, because they're now given the room to grow into the space which previously had been given over entirely to addiction.
What Are 3 Things New Rehab Clients Do Wrong When Going Into Addiction Treatment For The First Time?
(i) Anxiety at the prospect of detoxing, before treatment has even started.
(ii) The belief that a little success experienced during the early stages of recovery means that we're “cured”.
(iii) An increased risk of relapse because of inadequate preparedness for any trigger situations which may come into play when the treatment has concluded, and without necessary support to deal with these situations.
Why Would Horfield Rehab Not Work?
In the event of a relapse post-treatment, there are several possible causes:
(i) You didn't follow through actively, on your relapse prevention plan, compiled during treatment.
(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) During treatment, ensuring you plan for aftercare and engage with all the help on offer.
(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).
Those who relapse, tend to have missed out any one of the above safeguards.
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.
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 does take a different approach, than AA.
Alcoholics Anonymous is not the same as rehab, even though AA is good to have access to.
In fact, people have reported long-term recovery success just with AA Horfield alone.
Others have attended AA in the long term, but felt that certain elements of their recovery were missing.
Rehab, with its focus on one-on-one therapy, is different to the group-based AA meetings, and it may be that the causes of addiction are more properly uncovered with the former type of approach.
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.
Both programmes, in fact, provide very good foundations for full recovery, and may be used in any combination which is suitable for the individual.
Isn’t It Sufficient Just To Attend AA?
Alcoholics Anonymous as a source of hope, courage, and a path toward sobriety.
However, AA cannot provide medical detox, personalised therapeutic insight into the reasons behind your personal pattern of addiction, or structure and accountability in a cohesive aftercare plan.
For this you need to turn to rehab in its residential form, including a full detox, after which you can enjoy the full benefits of what Alcoholics Anonymous Horfield has to offer in terms of group support.
Is It Alright To Spontaneously Stop Taking Drugs Or Alcohol By Myself And Call That Success?
This is specifically advised against, due to risks involved.
Going "cold turkey" is something which we do not recommend on serious medical grounds.
There are the dangers of having seizures and blood pressure issues, with serious risk of heart issues.
**You must NOT attempt to undergo detox yourself, or any kind of DIY withdrawal method**.
What Is My Financial Situation Isn’t Up To That At The Moment?
If a full rehab programme is out of your reach at the moment, here's something to ask about.
Though not the full programme, the detox-only route is available as a possibility. This is not usually widely advertised.
This isn’t because it just costs less, but because this can be associated with lower success rates.
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.
You can ask about short-term detox, **but only** if support is planned for your continued recovery on the other side.
...for example, a well-chosen and properly structured support plan including longer term help and therapy.
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.
How Do I Find The Refund Policy For Rehab?
Please ask the clinic prior to beginning your residential programme; each clinic has its own policy.
Any refunds given are not provided on the basis of a client relapsing, as long term success is a matter of individual responsibility.

What If I Need To Get Started Quickly?
