It's easy to get overwhelmed searching for the right alcohol or drug addiction treatment near Maindy. But answers *are* available.
Below, we've laid out our 19 most forthright answers, to unflinching questions about rehab near Maindy:
Ready to overhaul your ideas about finding alcohol/drug rehab near Maindy?
Let's dive in.
Will Rehab Actually Help?
You can certainly expect a drug or alcohol addiction clinic programme to be productive, *as long as* you play an active role.
In fact, alcohol or drug addiction treatment in a clinic continues to be the best structured approach to tackling addiction at the point when it is needed most. But, a rehab centre 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.
A rehab clinic stay near Maindy is not to be considered a "cure" that will completely 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 should be considered the first stage in a journey which you choose to make.
What Does Rehab Maindy Consist Of?
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.
Over the first seven days in alcohol/drug rehab you should expect the following…
Your first seven days will see the detox completed and this will be accompanied by becoming accustomed to your new regime of medication.
This initial detox period will vary in duration from one individual to another, depending on frequency, recency, and amount of usage, together with the individual's history of addiction.
What should you expect after the first week of drug/alcohol rehab?
The clinical team will guide you to begin therapy sessions, when your detox has been completed. The purpose of this is to help your understanding of the root cause of your alcohol or drug abuse, and it may take the form of group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, one-to-one counselling, or similar procedures.
Residential programs in Maindy and Cardiff are multi-faceted in general, and will see you taking part in mutual aid meetings, physical routines, sharing your experiences with others and undergoing physical exercise, and and transition towards regaining some structure and order in your routine.
Most Maindy 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.
In the last 7 days of a rehab clinic stay, here's what you can expect...
Help and support to prevent you from relapsing will be provided by your clinic in the final week.
These will help you move on from residential treatment back into life outside the clinic and give an opportunity for you to plan supports in advance, for addictive triggers you've identified during treatment.
Who Is Likely To Benefit From Rehab?
Rehab clinic treatment is designed for people who have committed themselves to full recovery.
This usually means they've been round in the circle of abusing alcohol or drugs several times, seen and borne the negative consequences, and know there must be another way - but need help to achieve this.
Rehab centres are 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 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 Aspects Of Addiction Treatment Are Now Outdated, That I Should Watch Out For?
- Going it alone. Believing that even though although external support channels are available, they are not required.
- Treatment programmes skewed to the extreme, in favour strictly of only one form of spiritual approach or outlook on recovery. The majority of rehab clinics favour a broader approach which takes into account all routes to recovery and don’t insist that religious adherence is required.
- A process-driven programme which will alienate the client and make them feel as if they are not being treated as a human being.
The core of a successful alcohol or drug treatment programme will treat the client as an individual and part of a community of people who have similar issues and share a common goal in making a full recovery.
How Can I Succeed In Alcohol/Drug Rehab?
Is There A Checklist Of Things You Should Do When Planning To Enter Maindy Drug/Alcohol 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.
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:
- 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 substance that held you in its addictive grip.
- You should begin to notice small behavioural and emotional changes, increased structure and order, and a sense of renewed purpose.
- When these behavioural changes occur, other major life factors have the breathing space to improve also, e.g. relationships, family life, work, etc.
What Are The Top 3 Mistakes Those Entering Drug/Alcohol Treatment For The First Time Make?
(i) Fear associated with the initial detox and withdrawal phase leading to a desire to leave treatment before it has begun.
(ii) The belief that a little success experienced during the early stages of addiction recovery means that we're “cured”.
(iii) An increased risk of relapse because of inadequate preparedness for any trigger situations which may come into play when the treatment has concluded, and without necessary support to deal with these situations.
What If Maindy Inpatient Rehab Doesn't Work For Me?
In the event of a relapse post-treatment, there are several possible causes:
(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.
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).
Those who relapse, tend to have missed out any one of the above safeguards.
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.
You need to remember that even those people without a good support network continue to recover successfully.
Alcoholics Anonymous Didn't Work For Me, How Is Rehab Different?
If AA didn’t work for you, we assure you that rehab is different; here’s how…
Alcoholics Anonymous is a tremendous resource to have in anyone's recovery, but AA and rehab are not mutually exclusive.
Many have used only AA Maindy in their recovery over the years, and achieved very long-term success.
Some people have attended AA meetings over the long term but reported that they felt something was lacking from just the one community support.
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 quite often choose to attend the AA group meetings in addition to having completed the residential rehab.
Both AA and residential rehab can be effective approaches to long-term recovery, and usage of both can be done in a variety of combinations.
Why Can't I Just Attend Alcoholics Anonymous To Get Better?
People often say that it is Alcoholics Anonymous that shows them the way and inspires them to stay sober.
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 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 Maindy has to offer in terms of group support.
I Want To Stop Using Alcohol Or Drugs Without Professional Help
We don’t consider this to be a good move at all.
Undergoing withdrawal alone and by yourself can carry with it serious clinical consequences.
There are a multitude of risks associated with this, including heart issues and convulsions/seizures.
**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?
If a full alcohol/drug rehab programme is too much for your right now, here's another option.
Though not widely advertised, many centres can provide a detox-only alternative.
However, the success rates for these shorter courses can be lower than with the longer more established programmes.
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.
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?
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?
I’d Like To Start The Programme Immediately; Can I Do That?
Some clinical checks need to be carried out and then the admissions staff will be able to welcome you to the residential programme in less than 48 hours.
