Getting simple, practical guidance on addiction help near Mayfield Park is difficult....but not impossible.
In this comprehensive 19 Q&A guidebook, we laid out answers to:
Ready to overhaul your ideas about finding rehab near Mayfield Park?
Will Rehab Actually Help?
As long as you actively participate and don’t remain passive, rehab can and will help you.
Along with the primary care needs for addiction, detox and therapy, rehab is the most structured method available for people to get well. Although, you will need to apply yourself to the rehab process.
Addiction comes about through the absence of personal responsibility, so taking back responsibility for ones life is necessary in order to recover.
Rehab near Mayfield Park should not be considered a permanent "cure" that can fix all drug problems in your life immediately.
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.
What Exactly Happens During Rehab Mayfield Park?
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.
During the initial week in drug or alcohol rehab, you should expect…
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 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.
What should you expect after the first week of rehab?
Our clinical team will begin to guide you, once you’ve completed your detox, through the start of your therapy. 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.
In general, residential programmes are 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 and transition towards regaining some structure and order in your routine.
Most Mayfield Park clinics have an agenda of daily activities, distributed the night before, detailing the events of the next day, and where you should be, and when.
What should you expect in the last week of rehab?
During the final week, if not before, your provider will probably plan precautions against relapsing, together with other support.
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 Likely To Benefit From Rehab?
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.
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.
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?
- Trying to quit your addictive behaviour alone and without the professional support which you nevertheless know exists.
- Any approach to therapy which is demonstrably tied to only one type of outlook on what works best. 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.
- A rather dogmatic approach to treatment which tends to leave patients feeling alienated.
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?
What Are The Things You Should Plan For, In Mayfield Park Rehab?
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.
Prior to your admission, your clinic should send you a list of things you should bring with you to rehab.
How Should Life Be Different, After Rehab?
If you've integrated with the group, actively participated and taken responsibility along the way, you could expect:
- 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.
- 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 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.
For Those Entering Addiction Rehab For Their First Time, What Are 3 Things They Do Wrong?
(i) Initial nerves at the thought of withdrawal/detox, ceasing usage, and this fear being so strong that the client will stop treatment before any has even begun.
(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.
What Are The Chances Of Mayfield Park Rehab Failing?
If, following treatment, you relapse the likely explanations are:
(i) You didn't follow through on aftercare supports provided.
(ii) You didn't make enough progress on underlying psychological issues prior to experiencing an external trigger.
Make yourself less vulnerable to these events 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 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?
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.
You need to remember that even those people without a good support network continue to recover successfully.
Is Rehab Different From Alcoholics Anonymous, If So, How?
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.
There have been many success stories with people using only AA Mayfield Park to resolve their issues.
Some people have attended AA meetings over the long term but reported that they felt something was lacking from just the one service.
Some feel that the psychological causes of addiction were not fully addressed by the AA meetings alone.
Rehab and mutual aid meetings can *both* be beneficial, and are *not* mutually exclusive. They can be especially useful when applied at different times in each individual's recovery journey.
Those who have successfully completed a residential rehab programme often attend AA as part of their ongoing relapse prevention planning.
Both rehab and AA provide excellent foundations for recovery, and can be used individually, together, or at different times in any one individual's overall recovery pathway.
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 AA do not provide clinical detoxes or professional therapy into the underlying causes of addiction, or accountability in a structure recovery plan.
For this you need a properly structured residential programme, then later you could make use of AA Mayfield Park as part of your long-term recovery support.
Is It Wise To Just Stop My Substance Abuse Without Outside Help?
We don’t consider this to be a good move at all.
Trying to do this by yourself carries with it some grave medical concerns and we really advise against it.
There are the dangers of having seizures and blood pressure issues, with serious risk of heart issues.
**You must never attempt withdrawal or any detox without suitable clinical support**.
What If My Finances Won’t Allow That?
If a full rehab programme is too much for your right now, here's another option.
Though not widely advertised, many centres can provide a detox-only alternative.
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.
Short-term detox plans are available, ** only ** if you already have plans in place for support upon completion.
...for example, a well-chosen and properly structured support plan including longer term help and therapy.
Going in for a detox without having planned support ahead will risk a relapse and hence lower your chances of a full recovery.
Do Rehab Clinics Provide A Refund Policy?
Please ask the clinic prior to beginning your residential programme; each clinic has its own policy.
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?
I’d Like To Start The Programme Immediately; Can I Do That?
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.
