It's easy to get overwhelmed searching for the right alcohol or drug addiction treatment near Splott. But answers *are* available.
Below, we've laid out our 19 most forthright answers, to unflinching questions about rehab near Splott:
This is the primary guidebook for finding drug or alcohol rehab help near Splott.
We'll start with:
Will Rehab Treatment Actually Help Me In The Long Term?
You can certainly expect a drug or alcohol addiction clinic programme to be productive, *as long as* you play an active role.
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 clinic will not do everything for you.
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 Splott 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.
The first step on this path is residential rehab.
What Happens In Addiction Rehab Splott?
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.
What should you expect in the first week of drug/alcohol rehab?
The first week consists of completing the physical detox and resting more than you usually do, and also taking your 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 ...
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.
In general, residential programmes are quite diverse, 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.
Treatment clinics near Splott will tend to tell you the night before what the next day’s activities will be, and where.
Once in the final week in an alcohol/drug clinic, you should expect…
In this final week the clinic will put in place measures which will be designed to help prevent you from relapse.
This is designed to help you and guide you towards a normal life outside of the residential system and give you the chance to plan ahead and get the support to thwart any triggers that may be the cause of your addiction.
Who Is Best Suited To Rehab?
Rehab will help those who come into treatment with the intention of achieving long term recovery from their addiction.
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.
Only those who take responsibility for their own lives will gain from a full rehab programme, and the great benefits which follow.
Are There Outmoded Methods In Rehab, That I Should Avoid?
- Trying to quit drinking or drugs without any professional help; this is always a bad move.
- Treatment programmes skewed to the extreme, in favour strictly of only one form of spiritual approach or outlook on recovery. Most clinics and rehab centres have now accepted a wider perspective on the underlying principles of recovery, and do not insist you adopt specific religious philosophies or similar.
- A process-driven programme which will alienate the client and make them feel as if they are not being treated as a human being.
Drug or alcohol 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.
To Ensure My Drug/Alcohol Rehab Success... What Should I Be Doing?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Splott 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.
Any good rehab clinic will send you details of everything you’ll need before starting your rehab residency.
What Things Should I Expect To See Transformed During And After Drug/Alcohol Rehab?
If all goes according to plan you might expect to see signs of:
- As long as you’ve accepted what the substance is doing for you, you’ll find that it’s easier to fulfil your need for this in healthier ways, and you should plan for this accordingly.
- By understanding and taking care of these elements, behavioural changes, patterns of communication, and emotions should change, reflecting that basic needs are being met in a functional way, without the presence of the substance.
- 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.
For Those Entering Addiction Treatment For The First Time, What Mistakes Do You See Most Often Occurring?
(i) Anxiety at the prospect of drug/alcohol withdrawal, before treatment has even started.
(ii) Mistaking a couple of early successful milestones for a complete and lasting recovery from substance abuse.
(iii) The failure to properly take into account, and prepare for, any unexpected situation which could trigger a relapse back into addiction, and without the support and backup to prevent this from happening.
How Likely Is It That Splott Detox & Treatment Will Not Work For Me?
If, following detox and rehab, you relapse the likely explanations are:
(i) You didn't follow through actively, on your relapse prevention plan, compiled during treatment.
(ii) A trigger event happened in the external world, that you didn't work on yet, during treatment.
You can help yourself from falling foul of such circumstances by:
(i) During treatment, ensuring you plan for aftercare and engage with all the help on offer.
(ii) Ensuring you prioritise therapy in aftercare, which will provide real support when you need it most.
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?
You are among the millions of people in recovery across the world right now, each one with a different quality and history of support.
You need to remember that even those people without a good support network continue to recover successfully.
I’m Hoping Rehab Is Different?...Because Alcoholics Anonymous Didn’t Work For Me.
Rehab does take a different approach, than AA.
Alcoholics Anonymous is not the same as rehab, even though AA is good to have access to.
In fact, people have reported long-term recovery success just with AA Splott alone.
Some people have said that certain parts of their recovery were missing, having only attended AA over the years.
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.
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.
Isn’t It Sufficient Just To Attend AA?
Alcoholics Anonymous as a source of hope, courage, and a path toward sobriety.
But medical detoxes are not the province of Alcoholics Anonymous, and it is not their role to provide in-depth clinical therapy which addresses the causes of your addiction.
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 Splott has to offer in terms of group support.
Is It Wise To Just Stop My Substance Abuse Without Outside Help?
Going it alone is rarely the answer, and often, is very dangerous.
Trying to do this by yourself carries with it some grave medical concerns and we really advise against it.
Cardiovascular complications may ensue, together with blood pressure variations and it may result in life threatening symptoms without appropriate supervision.
**You must never attempt withdrawal or any detox without suitable clinical support**.
I’m Not Sure I Can Afford Treatment
Full alcohol or drug rehab may be unreachable financially for some, so here's another option you may like to consider.
Several clinics now provide an option which is detox only, though this isn’t usually publicised.
However, shorter programmes can result in lower success rates, for long term recovery.
Although the standard rehab stay is 28 days in total, we can suggest shorter stays if it is still clinically appropriate.
You can ask about short-term detox, **but only** if support is planned for your continued recovery on the other side.
...such as a well-organised support plan with a sponsor for your long term recovery.
Your short-term detox needs to be accompanied by structured support methods afterwards, or your chances of recovery from your addiction will be greatly diminished.
What Is The Refund Policy On Rehab?
Please ask the clinic prior to beginning your residential programme; each clinic has its own policy.
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 Stages Of Admitting To Rehab?
How Do I Go About Starting My Residential Treatment Right Away?
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.
