The hunt for addiction treatment near Llanishen 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 Llanishen.
Will Rehab Treatment Actually Help Me In The Long Term?
As long as you actively participate and don’t remain passive, rehab can and will help you.
In fact, rehab continues to be the best structured approach to tackling addiction at the point when it is needed most. But, rehab is only part of the way to success.
You will need to take responsibility for your own life, as a lack of this is a keynote feature of addiction.
Rehab near Llanishen is not to be considered a "cure" that will completely resolve all addiction issues in your life.
It took a long while to build up the patterns of addiction, and it will take time and understanding for them to be resolved.
All this requires patience, persistence, and constructive engagement.
Rehab is just the beginning.
What Should I Expect, From Rehab Llanishen?
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.
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.
Factors which will dictate the length of the initial detox phase will include the degree and length of dependency as well as the individual’s history of addiction.
After the first 7 days, here's what you can expect...
Our clinical team will begin to guide you, once you’ve completed your detox, through the start of your therapy. 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.
Usually, residential programmes near Llanishen and the surrounding Cardiff area are multi-faceted, and will see you participating in mutual aid meetings, complementary or holistic therapies, sharing experiences with other clients, physical exercise routines, And gradually you’ll sense a shift back towards an ordered and structured life.
The Llanishen clinics, in general, will inform their clients of the following day’s activities on the preceding night.
In the last 7 days of rehab, here's what you can expect...
In this final week the clinic will put in place measures which will be designed to help prevent you from relapse.
These will assist you as you move from residential care back into the outside world and allow you to plan ahead to prevent any triggers which may cause a relapse.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Rehab?
Rehab will help those who come into treatment with the intention of achieving long term recovery from their addiction.
In practice, people will have been trapped in a cycle of alcohol or drug abuse on multiple occasions, have tried and failed to recover, and seek the help to get their lives back on track.
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.
Only those who take responsibility for their own lives will gain from rehab, and the great benefits which follow.
Is There Anything That No Longer Works In Terms Of Rehab Treatment?
- 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.
- Treatment programmes skewed to the extreme, in favour strictly of only one form of spiritual approach or outlook on recovery. Most clinics and centres have now accepted a wider perspective on the underlying principles of recovery, and do not insist you adopt specific religious philosophies or similar.
- An approach which is doomed to failure at worst will be one which depersonalizes individuals.
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?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Llanishen Rehab Clinic?
Reputable addiction clinics will give you a booking confirmation, including a list of what items to bring to rehab when admitting.
Ask the admissions team you're dealing with for this, if they do not provide it.
What Are The Top 3 Changes In My Life, I Might See, During Or After Rehab?
As long as everything is done correctly, you might expect to see initial signs of:
- If you've understood what the substance is doing *for* you, it becomes easier to fulfil this need in other, healthier ways, and plan this in aftercare planning.
- 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.
- You’ll find that once the addictive substance is removed, you’ll be letting all the other things in your life, such as work, family and relationships, expand, to fill the void previously occupied by the addictive substance.
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) Not fully accounting for all potential trigger situations that could occur after treatment completes, resulting in under preparedness, and a higher than normal risk of relapse, following treatment, without the right support.
What Are The Chances Of Llanishen Rehab Failing?
If, following treatment, you relapse the likely explanations are:
(i) You didn't follow through on aftercare supports provided.
(ii) You were't able to understand enough about your own personal triggers, 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) To avoid succumbing to trigger events (which are 100% certain to happen) make sure you make continued therapeutic care, your priority.
In most cases, relapses are almost certainly due to omitting one of the above.
Do People Without Any Support Network Fail In Long-Term Recovery?
As you read this, millions of people are in recovery after having been through rehab, and each one of these will have a different quality of support as well as a different support history.
Even those people without a robust support network manage to recover from their drug or alcohol addiction, so it's possible for you too.
I’m Hoping Rehab Is Different?...Because Alcoholics Anonymous Didn’t Work For Me.
Even if you've already tried AA, here's how rehab is different...
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 Llanishen.
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.
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.
Full and long-term recoveries have been recorded by people who have used both resources, either individually or in conjunction with each other.
Is AA Alone Likely To Lead To Long Term Recovery?
Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are a wonderful resource in recovery and a source of inspiration, hope and the power of the community.
However, Alcoholics Anonymous are not the people who are best able to provide clinical care and therapy, or to examine the triggers and reasons for your addiction in a way which will be best at preventing relapse.
For this, look for clinical detox first, and then you can follow this with AA Llanishen meetings which are ideal as a way of supporting you in preventing relapse.
Is It OK To Stop Drinking Or Using Substances Without Help?
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 a multitude of risks associated with this, including heart issues and convulsions/seizures.
**You must never attempt withdrawal or any detox without suitable clinical support**.
I’m Not Sure I Can Afford Treatment
Full rehab may be unreachable financially for some, so here's another option you may like to consider.
There is sometimes a shorter programme which involves only completing the initial detox, although not available in all cases.
However, shorter programmes can result in lower success rates, for long term recovery.
Standard residential rehab usually takes 28 days in full. But here is what to consider if money is short at the moment.
Ask about short term detox plans, **but only** if you already have additional emotional supports setup for once detox completes.
...in other words, a proper and structured plan to therapy with its associated follow-up support.
Attempting to arrange a short-term detox, without these supports already in place, increases risk of relapse, and may considerably lower the chances of long-term recovery success, in our experience.
What Is The Refund Policy On Rehab?
Refund policies will vary from clinic to clinic, be sure to ask before committing.
Any refunds given are not provided on the basis of a client relapsing, as long term success is a matter of individual responsibility.
What Are The Steps To Sign Up For Rehab?
I’d Like To Start The Programme Immediately; Can I Do That?
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.
