Rehab Won't Help. Change My Mind.
Inpatient rehab could play a good part in helping you, *if* you allow it to help you, *and* you play an active role in facilitating this.
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. 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.
Rehab near Culverhouse Cross should not be considered a permanent "cure" that can fix all drug problems in your life immediately.
It has taken a long time to develop the complexities of drug or alcohol addiction in your life, and it will take time and awareness for them to be resolved.
You should know that all of this takes a good deal of active engagement and persistence.
A stay in a rehab centre is the first step on this journey.
What Happens In Addiction Rehab Culverhouse Cross?
The detox itself is the initial phase of the private rehab process, and it’s followed by therapy which deals with the causes of addiction and then counselling and care which looks to the future.
This is what you should find in the first 7 days of alcohol/drug rehab ...
Usually the first seven days are spent finishing physical detox, sleeping more than usual, and following prescribed drug advice.
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.
After the first seven days in rehab you should expect the following…
The clinical team will guide you to begin therapy sessions, when your detox has been completed. 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 Culverhouse Cross and Cardiff tend to be multi-faceted in nature, 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 gradual return to the kind of ordered life that may be regarded as normal for most people.
Treatment clinics near Culverhouse Cross will tend to tell you the night before what the next day’s activities will be, and where.
Once in the final week in an alcohol/drug clinic, you should expect…
Measures to assist you in relapse prevention will take place in the final week, provided by the clinic.
Such measures will assist you in your transition towards living a normal life outside the clinic and give an opportunity for you to plan supports in advance, for addictive triggers you've identified during treatment.
Who Is Likely To Benefit From Rehab?
Rehab clinic treatment is designed for people who have committed themselves to full recovery.
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 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 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 Addiction Treatment Are Now Outdated, That I Should Watch Out For?
- Attempting to detox yourself and stop your addictive patterns of behaviour, even though the appropriate help and support is at hand when you need it most.
- Any approaches which do not take a holistic view of what is required and only go down one narrow route. The majority of rehab clinics favour a broader approach which takes into account all routes to recovery and don’t insist that religious adherence is required.
- A process-driven programme which will alienate the client and make them feel as if they are not being treated as a human being.
Mutual support and cooperation as part of a group whose goals are the same will be, and should be, at the heart of any successful drug or alcohol rehab programme.
How Can I Succeed In Alcohol/Drug Rehab?
How To Plan For My Stay In A Culverhouse Cross Rehab Clinic?
Any good addiction clinic will confirm the booking and send you a list of the things that you should 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 Drug/Alcohol Rehab?
If the underlying work is done, substantial changes could be achieved:
- 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.
- You should begin to notice small behavioural and emotional changes, increased structure and order, and a sense of renewed purpose.
- When these behavioural changes occur, other major life factors have the breathing space to improve also, e.g. relationships, family life, work, etc.
What Are 3 Things New Rehab Clients Do Wrong When Going Into Treatment For Alcohol Or Drugs For The First Time?
(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) Mistaking a couple of early successful milestones for a complete and lasting recovery from substance abuse.
(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.
How Likely Is It That Culverhouse Cross Detox & Treatment Will Not Work For Me?
If you relapse following treatment, there are a few possibilities:
(i) You failed to implement aftercare advice following treatment.
(ii) A trigger event happened in the external world, that you didn't work on yet, during treatment.
You can look to prevent these scenarios 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) 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.
Can Recovery Work For Me? I Have No Family Or Friends Support
No two people are alike, and each person will have a different calibre of support when they begin their treatment.
The facts show that even people lacking in a strong support network find drug/alcohol recovery possible, and so can you.
Alcoholics Anonymous .v. Rehab - Which Is Better And Why?
Rehab does take a different approach, than AA.
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 Culverhouse Cross to resolve their alcoholism.
Others have attended AA in the long term, but felt that certain elements of their recovery were missing.
With treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, we need to understand the psychological drivers of addiction which are undiscovered in a mutual aid environment, and need focussed one-to-one therapeutic help.
Mutual aid and rehab treatment co-exist very well together. Whilst they are often used in different ways, or at different parts of the journey, these details come down to each individual's experience, and the order they tackle their issues, along the way.
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.
Why Can't I Just Attend Alcoholics Anonymous To Get Better?
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, turn first to a structured residential rehab programme, then later, enjoy the benefits of Alcoholics Anonymous or your chosen mutual aid programme, in Culverhouse Cross in the longer term.
I Want To Stop Using Alcohol Or Drugs Without Professional Help
Going it alone is rarely the answer, and often, is very dangerous.
Withdrawal without the expert help of experienced and qualified clinicians is extremely risky and we explicitly advise against this.
There are a multitude of risks associated with this, including heart issues and convulsions/seizures.
**You must NOT attempt to undergo detox yourself, or any kind of DIY withdrawal method**.
And If I Cannot Afford That?
If a full alcohol/drug rehab programme is too much for your right now, here's another option.
Several clinics now provide an option which is detox only, though this isn’t usually publicised.
This isn’t for financial reasons alone, but because shorter programmes are often associated with less successful outcomes, in the longer term.
A standard stay at a rehab clinic is usually 28 days. Here's what we recommend if you feel like budget is too tight right now.
Ask about short term detox plans, **but only** if you already have additional emotional supports setup for once detox completes.
...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.
What Is The Refund Policy On 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 Steps To 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.
