It's easy to get overwhelmed searching for the right alcohol or drug addiction treatment near Rumney. But answers *are* available.
Below, we showcase the 19 answers to crucial questions on:
Ready to overhaul your ideas about finding alcohol/drug rehab near Rumney?
Let's get started.
Will Rehab Treatment Actually Help Me In The Long Term?
Inpatient 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.
Along with the primary care needs for addiction, detox and therapy, treatment in a rehab centre is the most structured method available for people to get well. 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.
You should not expect addiction treatment in Rumney to completely “cure” you of all your addictive impulses or feelings.
The long term effects of an alcohol or drug problem took a long while to build up, and it will take time and understanding to stop.
You should know that all of this takes a good deal of active engagement and persistence.
It is only your first step on a long journey.
What Happens In Addiction Rehab Rumney?
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.
What should you expect in the first week of drug/alcohol rehab?
Your first seven days will see the detox completed and this will be accompanied by becoming accustomed to your new regime of 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.
This is what you should find after the first 7 days of rehab ...
After initial drug detox or alcohol 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.
Usually, residential programmes near Rumney and the surrounding Cardiff area are multi-faceted, and during these you share your experience with other clients, participate in various therapy sessions and do physical exercise, and a gradual return to the kind of ordered life that may be regarded as normal for most people.
Most Rumney detox and rehab clinics will set you daily activities which you’ll be allocated the night before, detailing when and where these are to be.
Once in the final week in an alcohol/drug clinic, you should expect…
During the final week, if not before, your provider will probably plan precautions against relapsing, together with other support.
You’ll be helped, in this way, back towards your life outside residential care and at this stage you are able to look ahead to plan for the support you may need to prevent succumbing to the addictive triggers which may cause relapse.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Rehab?
Rehab clinic treatment is designed for people who have committed themselves to full recovery.
This generally means that they have been round many times in the circle of alcohol or drug abuse, seen and borne the harmful effects, and know that there must be another way-but need support to do this.
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.
People who fully understand that they must be responsible for their own lives will be successful in this undertaking, and who fully commit to it.
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. Clinics nowadays are mostly geared to a broad perspective to how best to treat addictive behaviours, without recourse to religious philosophy or other similar strictures.
- An approach which is doomed to failure at worst will be one which depersonalises individuals as unique.
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 drug or alcohol rehab programme.
To Ensure My Drug/Alcohol Rehab Success... What Should I Be Doing?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Rumney 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.
Prior to your admission, your clinic should send you a list of things you should bring with you to rehab.
In What 3 Areas Of My Life Should I See Noticeable Change, Following Treatment?
As long as everything is done correctly, you might expect to see initial signs of:
- If you've understood what the alcohol/substance abuse is doing *for* you, it becomes easier to fulfil this need in other, healthier ways, and then plan this in aftercare planning.
- You should begin to notice small behavioural and emotional changes, increased structure and order, and a sense of renewed purpose.
- 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.
For Those Entering Addiction Rehab For Their First Time, What Are 3 Things They Do Wrong?
(i) The thought of withdrawal from alcohol or drugs during the detox stage, leading to a wish to cancel the whole rehab treatment.
(ii) The erroneous belief that success has been achieved in long term recovery when only small/initial gains have been made.
(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.
How Likely Is It That Rumney Detox & Treatment Will Not Work For Me?
In the event of a relapse post-treatment, there are several possible causes:
(i) You did not make use of the support provided post-rehab.
(ii) Your understanding of the psychology of what causes your excess drinking or drug use was not yet advanced enough; sometimes this just takes time to work through.
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.
Can Recovery Work For Me? I Have No Family Or Friends 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.
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…
AA is not the same as rehab.
Alcoholics Anonymous Rumney has been responsible for a good deal of long term recovery success stories over the years.
People have said that just using AA meant that there was something missing in their recovery - something personal to the individual.
Alcoholics Anonymous meetings tend to be group based rather than one-to-one, and it is thought that this may not fully account for a mature assessment of the underlying causes of alcohol abuse.
*Both* rehab and mutual aid, such as AA, or SMART recovery, are beneficial, especially when used at different times or for different purposes, in any one person's recovery pathway.
People quite often choose to attend the AA group meetings in addition to having completed the residential rehab.
A good recovery can be produced by both rehab and AA, each together, or at different times, depending on circumstances.
Why Can't I Just Attend Alcoholics Anonymous To Get Better?
AA is a great help for anyone in recovery and is often seen as the light at the end of the tunnel.
But AA do not provide clinical detoxes or professional therapy into the underlying causes of addiction, or accountability in a structure recovery plan.
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 Rumney has to offer in terms of group support.
I Want To Stop Using Alcohol Or Drugs Without Professional Help
We must expressly advise against this.
Going "cold turkey" is something which we do not recommend on serious medical grounds.
Cardiovascular complications may ensue, together with blood pressure variations and it may result in life threatening symptoms without appropriate supervision.
**Proper medical supervision must always be close at hand during any detox or withdrawal**.
What Is My Financial Situation Isn’t Up To That At The Moment?
Another option can be available to you if the full alcohol/substance misuse rehab programme isn’t realistic right now.
There is sometimes a shorter programme which involves only completing the initial detox, although not available in all cases.
This isn’t for financial reasons alone, but because shorter programmes are often associated with less successful outcomes, in the longer term.
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.
...for example, a well-chosen and properly structured support plan including longer term help and therapy.
Going in for a detox without having planned support ahead will risk a relapse and hence lower your chances of a full recovery.
What Is The Refund Policy On Rehab?
You should ask the clinic you are about to attend about its own refund policy, as each is different.
If you relapse you should not expect a refund, as the cause of the relapse is down to the client in each case.
How Do I Get Started In Treatment?
What If I Need To Get Started Quickly?
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.
