The hunt for addiction treatment near Llanedeyrn can be confusing. But our companion guide can lend a hand...
Below, we've laid out our 19 most forthright answers, to unflinching questions about rehab near Llanedeyrn:
This is the most detailed debriefing available on addiction treatment options in Llanedeyrn.
Will Rehab Actually Help?
Residential rehab treatment clinics for alcoholism and drug addiction can and do help, *if* you take an active part, and don't remain passive, or expect everything to be done 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. But, you should know that you also need to play an active part in this.
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 Llanedeyrn should not be considered a permanent "cure" that can fix all drug problems in your life immediately.
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.
Rehab should be considered the first stage in a journey which you choose to make.
What Happens In Addiction Rehab Llanedeyrn?
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.
During the initial week in drug or alcohol rehab, you should expect…
The first 7 days are usually spent completing physical detox, resting more than normal, and following advice for prescribed 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.
Once the first week in rehab is over, you should expect…
The clinical team will guide you to begin therapy sessions, when your detox has been completed. This could be group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, individual counselling, or similar, as a means to help you understand why you started in alcohol or drug abuse, and how to get out.
Residential programmes near Llanedeyrn 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 move back toward structure and order, in your daily routine.
Most Llanedeyrn addiction clinics have an agenda of daily activities, distributed the night before, detailing the events of the next day, and where you should be, and when.
What should you expect in the last week of inpatient rehabilitation?
Measures to assist you in relapse prevention will take place in the final week, provided by the clinic.
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 Rehab For?
Rehab will help those who come into treatment with the intention of achieving long term recovery from their addiction.
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.
What Doesn't Work Anymore, In Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment?
- Going it alone. Believing that even though although external support channels are available, they are not required.
- Programmes of treatment which are extreme in nature and which tend to be geared towards one form of therapy or approach. 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 treatment.
- 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.
What Do I Need To Do To Make Alcohol & Drug Rehabilitation A Success, For Me?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Llanedeyrn Rehab Clinic?
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.
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 Are The Top 3 Changes In My Life, I Might See, During Or After Alcohol/Drug Rehab?
As long as you put in the work, significant changes could be expected:
- 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.
- Many find that relationships, family life and the world of work are also improved, because they're now given the room to grow into the space which previously had been given over entirely to addiction.
What Are The Top 3 Mistakes Those Entering Drug/Alcohol Treatment For The First Time Make?
(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 being fully equipped to comprehend future situations or events that could potentially trigger relapse.
What Are The Chances Of Llanedeyrn Residential Rehab Failing?
If, following detox and rehab, you relapse the likely explanations are:
(i) You did not make use of the support provided post-rehab.
(ii) You were't able to understand enough about your own personal alcohol or drug triggers, during treatment.
Help yourself to safeguard against these circumstances 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) Making continuing therapeutic care a priority in your aftercare plan, to ensure you have active support, when you do experience triggers (this is inevitable).
We find that people who tend to relapse will have unfortunately neglected these aspects of aftercare.
Do People Without Any Support Network Fail In Long-Term Recovery?
Of the millions in recovery globally, everyone has a different level of alcohol/drug dependency and amount of support available in their lives, when they enter treatment.
Even those people without a robust support network manage to recover from their drug or alcohol addiction, so it's possible for you too.
Alcoholics Anonymous .v. Rehab - Which Is Better And Why?
Rehab is different to the AA approach, and this is how…
Alcoholics Anonymous is a tremendous resource to have in anyone's recovery, but AA and rehab are not mutually exclusive.
Long-term success has certainly been achieved over the years just by using AA Llanedeyrn.
Some people have attended AA meetings over the long term but reported that they felt something was lacking from just the one community support.
In hindsight, it may be that the AA meetings, which lack the one-to-one aspect of rehab, failed to fully address the psychological triggers of alcohol addiction.
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.
Those who have successfully completed a residential rehab programme often attend AA as part of their ongoing stop drinking support.
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.
Isn’t It Sufficient Just To Attend AA?
AA is a great help for anyone in recovery and is often seen as the light at the end of the tunnel.
However, AA cannot provide a structured therapeutic framework in which to address the underlying issues which cause addiction, nor do they offer any clinical support.
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 Llanedeyrn has to offer in terms of group support.
Is It Alright To Spontaneously Stop Taking Drugs Or Alcohol By Myself And Call That Success?
We don’t consider this to be a good move at all.
Trying to do this by yourself carries with it some grave medical concerns and we really advise against it.
There are the dangers of having seizures and blood pressure issues, with serious risk of heart issues.
**You must never attempt withdrawal or any detox without suitable clinical support**.
What If I Can't Afford It?
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 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.
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 **only** if you have adequate plans for support upon completion.
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?
Refund policies will vary from clinic to clinic, be sure to ask before committing.
You will find that most clinics will not offer a refund in cases where a relapse has taken place after a certain amount of time, as the cause of such a relapse is almost always a matter of individual behaviour.
How Do I Actually Sign Up For 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.
