We tracked the 19 most common questions we're asked, and laid out the answers, below:
Ready to overhaul your ideas about finding rehab near Coryton?
We'll start with:
Will Rehab Actually Help?
Rehab can and does help, *if* you take an active part, and don't remain passive, or expect everything to be done for you.
At the point of crisis we have found that rehab is the best approach available among the primary care needs of people who are in active addiction. But, rehab will not do everything for you.
You will need to take responsibility for your own life, as a lack of this is a keynote feature of addiction.
Rehab in Coryton cannot be considered a permanent "cure", which will automatically resolve all addiction issues in your life.
The addictive process takes many years to establish itself, so it will likely take a long time, and patience, to resolve it.
All of this takes patience, diligence, and active participation.
Rehab is the first step on this journey.
How Does A Rehab Programme Near Coryton Work, Exactly?
Usually, private rehab is a 3-stage overall phase of initial detox, clinical assistance for underlying psychological addiction disorders, followed by aftercare, which includes future help and services.
In the first 7 days of drug/alcohol rehab, here's what you can expect...
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. 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 these will mean you’ll be participating in complementary therapies, mutual aid meetings, physical routines, sharing your experiences with others, and a move back toward structure and order, in your daily routine.
Clinics near Coryton will tend to tell you the night before what the next day’s activities will be, and where.
This is what you should expect to experience during the final 7 days of rehab ...
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 at this stage you are able to look ahead to plan for the support you may need to prevent succumbing to the addictive triggers which may cause relapse.
Who Is Best Suited To 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.
This usually means they've been round in the circle of abusing alcohol or substances several times, seen and borne the negative consequences, and know there must be another way - but need help to achieve this.
Rehab is for those ready to do the work involved, but need the help to physically feel better, detox, and get the therapy insights needed to move forward productively.
Rehab will reward those who accept full responsibility for getting their lives back on track and who understand that only their own will can achieve this.
What Aspects Of Rehab Treatment Are Now Outdated, That I Should Watch Out For?
- Trying to quite your addiction without any professional help; this is always a bad move.
- Programmes of treatment which are extreme in nature and which tend to be geared towards one form of therapy or approach. 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.
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.
What Is The Best Way To Ensure Rehab Is Successful?
What Are The Things You Should Plan For, In Coryton Rehab?
All good clinics will send a booking acknowledgment to you prior to your stay, detailing all the things to bring with you.
All the items you’ll need to bring in with you should be sent to you prior to admission, and any reputable rehab clinic will do this in plenty time.
What Things Should I Expect To See Transformed During And After My Rehab?
If all goes according to plan you might expect to see signs of:
- You’ll find that it is much easier to fulfil the needs of the substance in ways which are positive rather than dysfunctional, and so you should plan for this.
- You should begin to notice small behavioural and emotional changes, increased structure and order, and a sense of renewed purpose.
- 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 The Top 3 Mistakes Those Entering Addiction Treatment For The First Time Make?
(i) The thought of being deprived of the addictive substance during the detox stage, leading to a wish to cancel the whole rehab treatment.
(ii) The belief that a little success experienced during the early stages of recovery means that we're “cured”.
(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 Coryton Rehab Failing?
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) You underestimated the power of triggers to push you back into addiction; this just didn’t sink in during your treatment.
You’ll be able to prepare for such situations 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) 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).
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?
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.
Alcoholics Anonymous .v. Rehab - Which Is Better And Why?
If AA didn’t work for you, we assure you that rehab is different; here’s how…
Alcoholics Anonymous is not the same as rehab, even though AA is good to have access to.
Alcoholics Anonymous Coryton has been responsible for a good deal of long term recovery success stories over the years.
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.
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.
People quite often choose to attend the AA group meetings in addition to having completed the residential rehab.
Both programmes, in fact, provide very good foundations for full recovery, and may be used in any combination which is suitable for the individual.
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.
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 a properly structured residential programme, then later you could make use of AA Coryton as part of your long-term recovery support.
Is It Alright To Spontaneously Stop Taking Drugs Or Alcohol By Myself And Call That Success?
Going it alone is rarely the answer, and often, is very dangerous.
Attempting withdrawal without qualified medical supervision can be extremely dangerous and should not be undertaken.
Cardiovascular complications may ensue, together with blood pressure variations and it may result in life threatening symptoms without appropriate supervision.
**NEVER undertake withdrawal or detox without qualified medical supervision**.
I’m Not Sure I Can Afford Treatment
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.
Standard residential rehab usually takes 28 days in full. But here is what to consider if money is short at the moment.
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.
Your short-term detox needs to be accompanied by structured support methods afterwards, or your chances of recovery from your addiction will be greatly diminished.
How Do I Find The Refund Policy For Rehab?
Each clinic will operate their own refund policies, so ask before your course begins.
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 Stages Of Admitting To Rehab?
Can I Start Rehab Right Now?
The clinic’s admissions team will carry out a suitability assessment, and provided that everything is fine, then clients can be admitted within two days.
