The hunt for addiction treatment near Coryton can be confusing. But our companion guide can lend a hand...
In this comprehensive 19 Q&A guidebook, we laid out answers to:
Ready to overhaul your ideas about finding alcohol/drug rehab near Coryton?
Let's get started.
How Much Work Do I Have To Put In, In Rehab?
Provided that you do not expect everything to be done for you, treatment in a residential rehab should be beneficial for you.
Rehab is the most structured approach available, to the initial primary care needs for drug/alcohol addiction detox and therapy, at the point of crisis. Although, you will need to actively apply yourself to the rehab process.
You will need to take back your own responsibility for your life as part of the addiction recovery process.
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.
All this requires patience, persistence, and constructive engagement.
It is only your first step on a long journey.
What Should I Expect, From Inpatient Rehab Coryton?
Private rehab typically comprises three stages, consisting of the detox followed by help with psychological aspects of the addiction and then aftercare which seeks to provide a basis for life in the future.
What should you expect in the first week of drug/alcohol rehab?
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, along with the history of addiction of the individual, can vary in length from one person to another, depending on frequency, recency, and amount of use.
After the first 7 days, here's what you can expect...
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 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.
Residential programmes near Coryton and Cardiff tend to be multi-faceted in nature, and will see you participating in mutual aid meetings, complementary or holistic therapies, sharing experiences with other clients, physical exercise routines, and progress back to an ordered life with a more structured feel to it.
Rehab Coryton clinics, in general, will inform their clients of the following day’s activities on the preceding night.
In the last 7 days of a rehab clinic stay, here's what you can expect...
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 assist you as you move from residential care back into the outside world 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 a Good Candidate For Rehab?
Residential rehab is for those who are genuinely serious about long term recovery.
Such people have tried time and time again to quit their misuse 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.
Rehab clinic treatment is for people who know that there is a way through this and who are willing to undertake the effort necessary to achieve this, and who are willing to fully detox then take part in the counselling and therapies which follow afterwards.
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.
Are There Outmoded Methods In Rehab, That I Should Avoid?
- DIY recovery attempts. The delusion that trying to get your life back on track without outside professional help might work, even though you know that help is available.
- Any approaches which do not take a holistic view of what is required and only go down one narrow route. Most clinics and rehab 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.
The essence of alcoholism and drug addiction recovery is in mutual aid, community, and respect for each other as individuals.
How Do I Set Myself Up For Success In Addiction Treatment?
How Should I Make Plans For My Upcoming Coryton Rehab Treatment Admission?
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.
What Are The Top 3 Changes In My Life, I Might See, During Or After Alcohol/Drug Rehab?
If all goes according to plan you might expect to see signs of:
- 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.
- 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 Treatment For Alcohol Or Drugs For The First Time?
(i) Fear at the prospect of taking the coping mechanism away, and entering withdrawal, during the first phase of rehab.
(ii) The erroneous belief that success has been achieved in long term recovery when only small/initial gains have been made.
(iii) Not fully accounting for all potential trigger situations that could occur after treatment completes, resulting in under preparedness, and a higher than normal risk of relapse, following treatment, without the right support.
How Likely Is It That Coryton Detox & Treatment Will Not Work For Me?
In the event of a relapse post-treatment, there are several possible causes:
(i) You did not make use of the support provided post-rehab.
(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) 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) Continuing with the therapy as part of your aftercare and taking action on the support and help offered; trigger scenarios will inevitably happen, it is a case of when and not if.
Those who relapse, tend to have missed out any one of the above safeguards.
I Don't Have Any Support Or Family Members: Is Recovery Possible?
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.
You need to remember that even those people without a good support network continue to recover successfully.
I’m Hoping Rehab Is Different?...Because Alcoholics Anonymous Didn’t Work For Me.
Yes, rehab is different to AA, and here’s how….
AA is a great resource to have, but AA and rehab are not the same thing.
Many have used only AA Coryton in their recovery over the years, and achieved very long-term success.
Others have attended AA in the long term, but felt that certain elements of their recovery were missing.
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.
AA meetings are often taken up by people after they’ve successfully completed their residential rehab programmes.
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, 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, look for clinical detox first, and then you can follow this with AA Coryton meetings which are ideal as a way of supporting you in preventing relapse.
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.
Undergoing withdrawal alone and by yourself can carry with it serious clinical consequences.
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**.
I’m Not Sure I Can Afford Treatment
Full alcohol or drug rehab may be unreachable financially for some, so here's another option you may like to consider.
Though not the full programme, the detox-only route is available as a possibility. This is not usually widely advertised.
However, the success rates for these shorter courses can be lower than with the longer more established programmes.
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 plans, **but only** if you already have additional emotional supports setup for once detox completes.
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.
How Do Clinics Approach Their Rehab 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.
