Hundreds near Maindy end up opting for the wrong addiction treatment that doesn't meet their needs. But with the right insights, it *is* possible to find the right help.
Below, we've laid out our 19 most forthright answers, to unflinching questions about rehab near Maindy:
This is the most detailed debriefing available on addiction treatment options in Maindy.
We'll start with:
How Do I Know Rehab Will Be Beneficial?
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.
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.
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 Maindy 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.
It will take plenty of perseverance and self-will.
Rehab is just the beginning.
What Happens In Rehab Maindy?
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.
In the first 7 days of drug/alcohol rehab, here's what you can expect...
Usually the first seven days are spent finishing physical detox, sleeping more than usual, and following prescribed drug advice.
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.
Once the first week in rehab is over, you should expect…
After initial detox is complete, the clinical team will invite you to begin taking part in therapeutic sessions. You may find yourself in individual counselling sessions or in group Behavioural Therapy, which seeks to help you understand the reasons for your addiction.
Maindy and Cardiff Residential programmes are, as a whole quite diverse, and will see you taking part in mutual aid meetings, physical routines, sharing your experiences with others and undergoing physical exercise, and a move back toward structure and order, in your daily routine.
Clinics near Maindy will tend to tell you the night before what the next day’s activities will be, and where.
This is what you should expect to experience during the final 7 days of rehab ...
In the last 7 days, if not earlier, if your provider includes it, you should be planning out measures for relapse prevention, and aftercare supports.
This is designed to help you and guide you towards a normal life outside of the residential system and allow you to plan ahead to prevent any triggers which may cause a relapse.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Rehab?
Rehab is for those who are genuinely serious about long term recovery.
Such people have tried time and time again to quit their harmful use 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 is for those ready to do the work involved, but need the help to physically feel better, detox, and get the therapy insights needed to move forward productively.
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 Rehab 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. 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.
- A clinical programme that is driven almost entirely by process, can lead to individuals feeling like "just a number".
Rehab programmes which are known to work are those which place the client within a community of people with shared problems and a corresponding shared will to succeed in conquering their addictive behaviour.
What Is The Best Way To Ensure Rehab Is Successful?
Is There A Checklist Of Things You Should Do When Planning To Enter Maindy Rehab?
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.
Ask the admissions team you're dealing with for this, if they do not provide it.
What Things Should I Expect To See Transformed During And After My Rehab?
If all goes according to plan you might expect to see signs of:
- You should plan for a life where you take care of your needs in ways which are healthier than before and without the need for the thing that held you in its addictive grip.
- By dealing with all of these things, in turn, you should find that you emotional life, the way that you behave and interact with other people will be brighter and more positive, and without the need for your addictive behaviour.
- When these behavioural changes occur, other major life factors have the breathing space to improve also, e.g. relationships, family life, work, etc.
For Those Entering Addiction Rehab For Their First Time, What Are 3 Things They Do Wrong?
(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) Not being fully equipped to comprehend future situations or events that could potentially trigger relapse.
How Likely Is It That Maindy Rehab Will Not Work For Me?
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) You were't able to understand enough about your own personal triggers, during treatment.
Make yourself less vulnerable to these events 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) Staying connected to all the aftercare support offered to you, which will help when dealing with trigger events.
In most cases, relapses are almost certainly due to omitting one of the above.
I Have No Family Or Support Channels, Will Recovery Work For Me?
Of the millions in recovery globally, everyone has a different history and level of support available in their lives, when they enter 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?
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.
There have been many success stories with people using only AA Maindy to resolve their issues.
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.
Rehab and mutual aid meetings can *both* be beneficial, and are *not* mutually exclusive. They can be especially useful when applied at different times in each individual's recovery journey.
People quite often choose to attend the AA group meetings in addition to having completed the residential rehab.
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?
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, look for clinical detox first, and then you can follow this with AA Maindy meetings which are ideal as a way of supporting you in preventing relapse.
Is It Alright To Spontaneously Stop Taking Drugs Or Alcohol By Myself And Call That Success?
We must expressly advise against this.
Attempting withdrawal without qualified medical supervision can be extremely dangerous and should not be undertaken.
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 My Finances Won’t Allow That?
Full rehab may be unreachable financially for some, so here's another option you may like to consider.
Many clinics offer a detox-only programme, although this is not usually widely advertised.
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.
Shorter detox programmes are available, **but only** if there are adequate support structures in place for when you complete this.
i.e. a structured, organised approach to addiction therapy, follow up supports, mutual aid supports, and a sponsor lined up for the long term.
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?
Each clinic will operate their own refund policies, so ask before your course begins.
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?
Can I Start Rehab Right Now?
It will only take between one and two days for some basic checks to be carried out for suitability, and the clients can be welcomed by the admissions team for the start of their residential care.
