In this comprehensive 19 Q&A guidebook, we laid out answers to:
This is the primary guidebook for finding drug or alcohol rehab help near Llanedeyrn.
Will Rehab Do Any Good?
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.
For those suffering from addiction, detox followed by a well-managed rehab stay is the way forward in to recovery. But, rehab will not do everything for you.
You will need to take back your own responsibility for your life as part of the recovery process.
You should not expect rehab Llanedeyrn to completely “cure” you of all your addictive impulses or feelings.
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 takes patience, diligence, and active participation.
Rehab should be considered the first stage in a journey which you choose to make.
What Happens In Rehab Llanedeyrn?
Private rehab is typically a 3-stage overall process, of initial detox, therapeutic help with underlying psychological issues of addiction, followed by aftercare planning, which provides support and resources for the future.
This is what you should find in the first 7 days of alcohol/drug rehab ...
In the first week you’ll be resting more than is usual during the physical detox process, as well as getting used to your medication.
Everyone is different, so the length of the detox initially will vary depending on the depth of dependency, how recent the dependency has taken hold, and amount of usage.
After the first seven days in rehab you should expect the following…
Our clinical team will begin to guide you, once you’ve completed your detox, through the start of your therapy. You may find yourself in individual counselling sessions or in group Behavioural Therapy, which seeks to help you understand the reasons for your addiction.
In general, residential programmes are quite diverse, and during these you share your experience with other clients, participate in various therapy sessions and do physical exercise, and a move back toward structure and order, in your daily routine.
Most Llanedeyrn clinics will set you daily activities which you’ll be allocated the night before, detailing when and where these are to be.
This is what you should expect to experience during the final 7 days of rehab ...
Help and support to prevent you from relapsing will be provided by your clinic in the final week.
This is designed to help you and guide you towards a normal life outside of the residential system 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?
Rehab will help those who come into treatment with the intention of achieving long term recovery from their addiction.
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 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 is for those who are ready to accept responsibility again for their own life, and reap the gains accordingly.Rehab is 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.
Is There Anything That No Longer Works In Terms Of Rehab Treatment?
- Doing it yourself. The delusion that trying to get your life back on track without outside professional help, even though you know that help is available.
- Treatment programmes skewed to the extreme, in favour strictly of only one form of spiritual approach or outlook on recovery. 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.
- 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.
What Is The Best Way To Ensure Rehab Is Successful?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Llanedeyrn Rehab Clinic?
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 you've integrated with the group, actively participated and taken responsibility along the way, you could expect:
- 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.
- 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.
- When these changes in your behaviour take place you’ll find that there’s ample room for other things to improve also, such as improvements in family life, your work, etc.
Tell Me The Top 3 Errors I Should Avoid When Entering Addiction Rehab?
(i) Fear at the prospect of taking the coping mechanism away, during the first phase of rehab.
(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 If Llanedeyrn Treatment Doesn't Work For Me?
A few specifics often lie underneath potential relapses after completing rehab:
(i) For whatever reason, you didn’t make use of any of the follow-up help and support resources after treatment completed.
(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) 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) 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.
In our experience, those who relapse repeatedly over time, have almost always missed one of the above elements.
Is It Possible To Stay Sober/Clean Even Without Social Support?
You are among the millions of people in recovery across the world right now, each one with a different quality and history of support.
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?
If AA didn’t work for you, we assure you that rehab is different; here’s how…
AA is a great resource to have, but AA and rehab are not the same thing.
Long-term success has certainly been achieved over the years just by using AA Llanedeyrn.
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.
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.
Both rehab and AA provide excellent foundations for recovery, and can be used individually, together, or at different times in any one individual's overall recovery pathway.
Can’t I Just Stick With Alcoholics Anonymous, Or Other Mutual Aid Groups, To Recover?
People often say that it is Alcoholics Anonymous that shows them the way and inspires them to stay sober.
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.
You can indeed reap the benefits of AA meetings near Llanedeyrn and the group support that they bring, but first you do need to undergo the residential clinical rehab, including the important detox stage at the start of the programme.
I Want To Stop Using Alcohol Or Drugs Without Professional Help
We must expressly advise against this.
Undergoing withdrawal alone and by yourself can carry with it serious clinical consequences.
Dangerous medical risks include heart attack and the dangers which are always associated with seizures and fits.
**You must NOT attempt to undergo detox yourself, or any kind of DIY withdrawal method**.
What Is My Financial Situation Isn’t Up To That At The Moment?
Full rehab may be unreachable financially for some, so here's another option you may like to consider.
Though not widely advertised, many centres can provide a detox-only alternative.
This is not because there is less financial outlay, but instead because there are established links with lower success rates, for shorter term interventions, instead of longer ones.
It usually takes 28 days for the full residential course; but we can recommend an alternative if that suits your pocket at the moment.
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.
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?
Please ask the clinic prior to beginning your residential programme; each clinic has its own policy.
Any refunds given are not provided on the basis of a client relapsing, as long term success is a matter of individual responsibility.
How Do I Get Started In Treatment?
Can I Begin Rehab As Soon As Possible?
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.
