The hunt for addiction treatment near Lisvane can be confusing. But our companion guide can lend a hand...
Below, we lay out 19 critical Q&A insights into:
This is the primary guidebook for finding drug or alcohol rehab help near Lisvane.
Will Rehab Actually Help?
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.
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. Although, you will need to apply yourself to the rehab process.
A lack of personal responsibility is the hallmark of addiction, and thus reclaiming responsibility for your own life is a cornerstone of recovery.
Rehab in Lisvane 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.
All of this requires patience, dedication, and active involvement.
It is only your first step on a long journey.
What Happens In Rehab Lisvane?
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…
Usually the first seven days are spent finishing physical detox, sleeping more than usual, and following prescribed drug advice.
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 ...
Upon completing your detox, you’ll be in the safe hands of the clinicians who will guide you through the therapeutic process. This could be group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, individual counselling, or similar, as a means to help you understand how you arrived in addiction, and how to get out.
Lisvane and Cardiff Residential programmes are, as a whole quite diverse, and during these you share your experience with other clients, participate in various therapy sessions and do physical exercise, And gradually you’ll sense a shift back towards an ordered and structured life.
Most Lisvane clinics will set you daily activities which you’ll be allocated the night before, detailing when and where these are to be.
What should you expect in the last week of rehab?
During the final week, if not before, your provider will probably plan precautions against relapsing, together with other support.
Such measures will assist you in your transition towards living a normal life outside the clinic 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 Likely To Benefit From Rehab?
Rehab is designed for people who have committed themselves to full recovery.
They’ve run the gamut of various ways to quite their addiction but have failed each time, but know that they can quit if only they had the help and support.
Rehab will take commitment and effort from those who undergo the treatment, from detox through to the sessions of therapy and counselling that follow, and out into the sunlight of normal life again.
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?
- Going it alone. Believing that even though although external support channels are available, they are not required.
- Any approach to therapy which is demonstrably tied to only one type of outlook on what works best. Clinics now tend not to insist on the religious determinism aspect of recovery from addiction, and favour a broader approach to treatment which incorporates a holistic outlook to rehab.
- Any programme which is dogmatic and process-driven, which will tend to make patients feel that they’re numbers rather than people.
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 rehab programme.
To Ensure My Rehab Success... What Should I Be Doing?
What Are The Things You Should Plan For, In Lisvane Rehab?
Reputable addiction clinics will give you a booking confirmation, including a list of what items to bring to rehab when admitting.
Any good rehab clinic will send you details of everything you’ll need before starting your rehab residency.
What Are The Top 3 Changes In My Life, I Might See, During Or After 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.
- By understanding and taking care of these elements, behavioural changes, patterns of communication, and emotions should change, reflecting that basic needs are being met in a functional way, without the presence of the substance.
- When these behavioural changes occur, other major life factors have the breathing space to improve also, e.g. relationships, family life, work, etc.
Tell Me The Top 3 Errors I Should Avoid When Entering Addiction Rehab?
(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) Mistaking a couple of early successful milestones for a complete and lasting recovery.
(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 Lisvane Rehab Failing?
If, following treatment, you relapse the likely explanations are:
(i) For whatever reason, you didn’t make use of any of the follow-up help and support resources after treatment completed.
(ii) Your understanding of the psychology of what causes your addictive behaviour was not yet advanced enough; sometimes this just takes time to work through.
Make yourself less vulnerable to these events 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) Making continuing therapeutic care a priority in your aftercare plan, to ensure you have active support, when you do experience triggers (this is inevitable).
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?
Every one of the huge number of people in recovery at any one time will have a different level of support as they start their rehab.
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….
Alcoholics Anonymous is useful to have access to, but rehab and AA are not the same.
Many have used only AA Lisvane in their recovery over the years, and achieved very long-term success.
People have said that just using AA meant that there was something missing in their recovery.
Some feel that the psychological causes of addiction were not fully addressed by the AA meetings alone.
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.
People who complete the residential rehab requirements do quite often attend AA later on as part of their relapse prevention measures.
Full and long-term recoveries have been recorded by people who have used both resources, either individually or in conjunction with each other.
Is Recovery Possible By Attending AA Meetings Alone?
People often say that it is Alcoholics Anonymous that shows them the way and inspires them to stay sober.
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 you need to turn to rehab in its residential form, including a full detox, after which you can enjoy the full benefits of what Alcoholics Anonymous Lisvane has to offer in terms of group support.
I Want To Stop Using Alcohol Or Drugs Without Professional Help
We really do warn against this.
Undergoing withdrawal alone and by yourself can carry with it serious clinical consequences.
Cardiovascular complications may ensue, together with blood pressure variations and it may result in life threatening symptoms without appropriate supervision.
**You should NEVER consider putting yourself through detox or cold-turkey alone**.
What Is My Financial Situation Isn’t Up To That At The Moment?
Another option can be available to you if the full rehab programme isn’t realistic right now.
There is sometimes a shorter programme which involves only completing the initial detox, although not available in all cases.
However, the success rates for these shorter courses can be lower than with the longer more established programmes.
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.
Short-term detox plans are available, ** only ** if you already have plans in place for support upon completion.
i.e. a structured, organised approach to addiction therapy, follow up supports, mutual aid supports, and a sponsor lined up for the long term.
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.
Do Rehab Clinics Provide A Refund Policy?
You should ask the clinic you are about to attend about its own refund policy, as each is different.
In general terms, most clinics do not refund fees if you relapse because the onus of responsibility lies with the client.
What Are The Stages Of Admitting To Rehab?
Can I Start Rehab Right Now?
Most clinics can admit a client within 24-48 hrs, pending essential medical checks and a short assessment of suitability, carried out by the clinic's admissions or intake team.
