Getting alcohol or drug addiction treatment help, that meets your needs near Coryton can be challenging...but help *is* available.
We tracked the 19 most common questions we're asked, and laid out the answers, below:
Brace yourself for warts and all answers, to the toughest questions about overcoming addiction near Coryton.
Rehab Won't Help. Change My Mind.
As long as you actively participate and don’t remain passive, rehab can and will help you.
In fact, alcohol or drug addiction treatment in a clinic continues to be the best structured approach to tackling addiction at the point when it is needed most. But, a rehab centre is only part of the way to success.
A lack of personal responsibility is the hallmark of addiction, and thus reclaiming responsibility for your own life is a cornerstone of recovery.
You should not expect addiction treatment in Coryton to completely “cure” you of all your addictive impulses or feelings.
The addictive process takes many years to establish itself, so it will likely take a long time, and patience, to resolve it.
You should know that all of this takes a good deal of active engagement and persistence.
Rehab should be considered the first stage in a journey which you choose to make.
What Does Rehab Coryton Consist Of?
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 7 days are usually spent completing physical detox, resting more than normal, and following advice for prescribed 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.
This is what you should find after the first 7 days of rehab ...
Our clinical team will begin to guide you, once you’ve completed your detox from alcohol or drugs, through the start of your therapy. The purpose of this is to help your understanding of the root cause of your alcohol or drug abuse, and it may take the form of group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, one-to-one counselling, or similar procedures.
Usually, residential programmes near Coryton and the surrounding Cardiff area are multi-faceted, and you’ll be sharing your experiences with the other clients, participating in physical routines and in complementary therapy sessions and mutual aid, and a move back toward structure and order, in your daily routine.
Rehab Coryton clinics, in general, will inform their clients of the following day’s activities on the preceding night.
Once in the final week in an alcohol/drug clinic, you should expect…
Help and support to prevent you from relapsing will be provided by your clinic in the final week.
These will help you move on from residential treatment back into life outside the clinic and will provide opportunities in advance for you to plan your support against any addictive triggers which, by now, you should be aware of.
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 a rehab stay.
This usually means they've been round in the circle of abusing alcohol or drugs several times, seen and borne the negative consequences, and know there must be another way - but need help to achieve 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.
Rehab clinics are 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.
What Doesn't Work Anymore, In Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment?
Attempting to quit alcohol or drugs without help. This is a recipe for failure, and is especially ridiculous given that the support you need from professionals is available to you if only you would ask for it.
- 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.
- A process-driven programme which will alienate the client and make them feel as if they are not being treated as a human being.
Drug or alcohol rehab programmes which are known to work are those which place the client within a community of people with shared problems and a corresponding shared will to succeed in conquering their addictive behaviour.
How Do I Set Myself Up For Success In Addiction Treatment?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Coryton Rehab Clinic?
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.
What 3 Main Areas Of Life Should I Expect Changes In, After Addiction Rehab?
If you've integrated with the group, actively participated and taken responsibility along the way, you could expect:
- Plan for dealing with the need to fulfil your desires and wishes in healthier ways, than a coping mechanism or addictive substance like alcohol or drug use.
- 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.
- You’ll find that once the addictive substance is removed, you’ll be letting all the other things in your life, such as work, family and relationships, expand, to fill the void previously occupied by the addictive substance.
Tell Me The Top 3 Errors I Should Avoid When Entering Addiction Rehab?
(i) Anxiety at the prospect of drug/alcohol withdrawal, before treatment has even started.
(ii) Mistaking a couple of early successful milestones for a complete and lasting recovery from substance abuse.
(iii) Not being fully equipped to comprehend future situations or events that could potentially trigger relapse.
What If Coryton Inpatient Rehab Doesn't Work For Me?
If, following detox and rehab, you relapse the likely explanations are:
(i) You failed to implement aftercare advice following treatment.
(ii) You didn't make enough progress on underlying psychological issues behind alcoholism or drug addiction, prior to experiencing an external trigger.
You can look to prevent these scenarios 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) 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.
I Have No Family Or Support Channels, Will Recovery Work For Me?
As you read this, millions of people are in recovery after having been through rehab, and each one of these will have a different quality of support as well as a different support history.
Alcoholism or drug addiction recovery is certainly possible even if you don’t have continual support from family members.
Alcoholics Anonymous Didn't Work For Me, How Is Rehab Different?
If AA didn’t work for you, we assure you that rehab is different; here’s how…
AA is not the same as rehab.
Alcoholics Anonymous Coryton 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.
Residential 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.
After rehab has been completed, people quite regularly choose to attend AA meetings as well, as an ongoing part of their relapse prevention programme.
Both AA and residential rehab can be effective approaches to long-term recovery, and usage of both can be done in a variety of combinations.
Can’t I Just Stick With Alcoholics Anonymous, Or Other Mutual Aid Groups, To Recover?
Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are a wonderful resource in recovery and a source of inspiration, hope and the power of the community.
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, turn first to a structured residential rehab programme, then later, enjoy the benefits of Alcoholics Anonymous or your chosen mutual aid programme, in Coryton in the longer term.
Is Ceasing My Addictive Behaviour Without Assistance Useful...Or Dangerous?
We must expressly advise against this.
Withdrawal without the expert help of experienced and qualified clinicians is extremely risky and we explicitly advise against this.
Dangerous medical risks include heart attack and the dangers which are always associated with seizures and fits.
**Proper medical supervision must always be close at hand during any detox or withdrawal**.
I’m Not Sure I Can Afford Treatment
If a full rehab programme is out of your reach at the moment, here's something to ask about.
Several clinics now provide an option which is detox only, though this isn’t usually publicised.
However, shorter programmes can result in lower success rates, for long term recovery.
It usually takes 28 days for the full residential course; but we can recommend an alternative if that suits your pocket at the moment.
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.
Attempting to arrange a short-term detox, without these supports already in place, increases risk of relapse, and may considerably lower the chances of long-term recovery success, in our experience.
Do Rehab Clinics Provide A Refund Policy?
Refund policies will vary from clinic to clinic, be sure to ask before committing.
If you relapse you should not expect a refund, as the cause of the relapse is down to the client in each case.
What Are The Steps To Sign Up For Rehab?
What If I Need To Get Started Quickly?
