It's easy to get overwhelmed searching for the right alcohol or drug addiction treatment near Netham. But answers *are* available.
Below, we lay out 19 critical Q&A insights into:
Ready to overhaul your ideas about finding rehab near Netham?
Let's get started.
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.
For those suffering from addiction, detox followed by a well-managed rehab stay is the way forward in to recovery. But, you should know that you also need to play an active part in this.
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.
Rehab in Netham cannot be considered a permanent "cure", which will automatically 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.
It will take plenty of perseverance and self-will.
The first step on this path is rehab.
What Should I Expect, From Rehab Netham?
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.
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.
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.
Netham and Bristol Residential programmes are, as a whole quite diverse, and will see you participating in mutual aid meetings, complementary or holistic therapies, sharing experiences with other clients, physical exercise routines, And gradually you’ll sense a shift back towards an ordered and structured life.
Most Netham 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.
This is what you should expect to experience during the final 7 days of rehab ...
During the final week, if not before, your provider will probably plan precautions against relapsing, together with other support.
You’ll be helped, in this way, back towards your life outside residential care 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 designed for people who have committed themselves to full recovery.
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.
Rehab means putting in the work necessary to get your life back, and with the support and help of a proper detox followed by therapy and other forms of support.
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.
What Doesn't Work Anymore, In Rehab Treatment?
- Trying to quite your addiction without any professional help; this is always a bad move.
- Any approach to therapy which is demonstrably tied to only one type of outlook on what works best. A wider approach to the problem of addiction is now in favour across most rehab clinics, and a big difference is the lack of a strict adherence to religious dogma at the heart of recovery.
- 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 Do I Need To Do To Make Rehab A Success, For Me?
How To Plan For My Stay In Netham Rehab?
Any good addiction clinic will confirm the booking and send you a list of the things that you should bring with you.
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:
- If you've understood what the substance is doing *for* you, it becomes easier to fulfil this need in other, healthier ways, and plan this in aftercare planning.
- 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.
- How much better your whole life will become when you allow the positive things in life fill the massive space which was previously occupied by addiction, and the associated behaviours that went with it!
What Are 3 Things New Rehab Clients Do Wrong When Going Into Addiction Treatment For The First Time?
(i) Fear associated with the initial detox phase leading to a desire to leave treatment before it has begun.
(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.
What Are The Chances Of Netham Rehab Failing?
If a relapse occurs after treatment there may be a couple of causes of this:
(i) You did not make use of the support provided post-rehab.
(ii) You didn't make enough progress on underlying psychological issues prior to experiencing an external trigger.
You can help yourself from falling foul of such circumstances 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) To avoid succumbing to trigger events (which are 100% certain to happen) make sure you make continued therapeutic care, your priority.
In our experience, those who relapse repeatedly over time, have almost always missed one of the above elements.
Do People Without Any Support Network Fail In Long-Term Recovery?
Of the millions in recovery globally, everyone has a different history and level of support available in their lives, when they enter treatment.
Alcoholism or drug addiction recovery is certainly possible even if you don’t have continual support from family members.
Alcoholics Anonymous .v. Rehab - Which Is Better And Why?
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.
In fact, people have reported long-term recovery success just with AA Netham alone.
Some people have attended AA meetings over the long term but reported that they felt something was lacking from just the one service.
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.
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.
Full and long-term recoveries have been recorded by people who have used both resources, either individually or in conjunction with each other.
Can’t I Just Stick With Alcoholics Anonymous, Or Other Mutual Aid Groups, To Recover?
AA, and other mutual aid groups, are often reported as the drivers behind maintaining long term sobriety and being the provider of hope.
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, turn first to a structured residential rehab programme, then later, enjoy the benefits of Alcoholics Anonymous or your chosen mutual aid programme, in Netham in the longer term.
Is It Wise To Just Stop My Substance Abuse Without Outside Help?
This is specifically advised against, due to risks involved.
Withdrawal without the expert help of experienced and qualified clinicians is extremely risky and we explicitly advise against this.
Risks include elevated risk of seizure, heart and cardiovascular complications, blood pressure variations.
**You must never attempt withdrawal or any detox without suitable clinical support**.
What If My Finances Won’t Allow That?
Another option can be available to you if the full rehab programme isn’t realistic right now.
Though not widely advertised, many centres can provide a detox-only alternative.
This isn’t because it just costs less, but because this can be associated with lower success rates.
Although the standard rehab stay is 28 days in total, we can suggest shorter stays if it is still clinically appropriate.
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.
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.
How Do I Find The Refund Policy For Rehab?
Refund policies will vary from clinic to clinic, be sure to ask before committing.
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.
How Do I Actually Sign Up For Rehab?
Can I Begin Rehab As Soon As Possible?
Some clinical checks need to be carried out and then the admissions staff will be able to welcome you to the residential programme in less than 48 hours.
