Rehab Won't Help. Change My Mind.
Rehab can and does help, *if* you take an active part, and don't remain passive, or expect everything to be done for you.
For those suffering from addiction, detox followed by a well-managed rehab stay is the way forward in to recovery. Although, you will need to apply yourself to the rehab process.
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 rehab Splott to completely “cure” you of all your addictive impulses or feelings.
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 of this takes patience, diligence, and active participation.
Rehab is the first step on this journey.
What Exactly Happens During Rehab Splott?
Private rehab typically comprises three stages, consisting of the detox followed by help with psychological aspects of the addiction and then aftercare which seeks to provide a basis for life in the future.
This is what you should find in the first 7 days of alcohol/drug rehab ...
The first 7 days are usually spent completing physical detox, resting more than normal, and following advice for prescribed medication.
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.
This is what you should find after the first 7 days of rehab ...
Our clinical team will begin to guide you, once you’ve completed your detox, through the start of your therapy. You may find yourself in individual counselling sessions or in group Behavioural Therapy, which seeks to help you understand the reasons for your addiction.
Residential programmes near Splott and Cardiff tend to be multi-faceted in nature, and during these you share your experience with other clients, participate in various therapy sessions and do physical exercise, and and transition towards regaining some structure and order in your routine.
Clinics near Splott will tend to tell you the night before what the next day’s activities will be, and where.
In the last 7 days of rehab, here's what you can expect...
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.
You’ll be helped, in this way, back towards your life outside residential care 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 Rehab For?
Rehab is for those who are genuinely serious about long term recovery.
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.
The people who will get the most out of rehab will be willing to commit to the work involved but will need help to do so in a structured way, beginning with detox and following on with the proper therapy.
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?
- Trying to quite your addiction without any professional help; this is always a bad move.
- Programmes of treatment which are extreme in nature and which tend to be geared towards one form of therapy or approach. 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.
The essence of recovery is in mutual aid, community, and respect for each other as individuals.
How Do I Set Myself Up For Success In Rehab?
How To Plan For My Stay In Splott 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 Things Should I Expect To See Transformed During And After My Rehab?
If you've integrated with the group, actively participated and taken responsibility along the way, you could expect:
- 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.
- 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.
For Those Entering Addiction Rehab For Their First Time, What Are 3 Things They Do Wrong?
(i) Fear associated with the initial detox phase leading to a desire to leave treatment before it has begun.
(ii) Overconfidence following a few therapeutic gains made, early in the process. Believing that one or two individual insights is equal to lasting recovery.
(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.
What Are The Chances Of Splott Rehab Failing?
If you relapse following treatment, there are a few possibilities:
(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) Engaging with the therapeutic and aftercare planning throughout; and taking action on what is being offered to you; your chances of successfully staying clean may depend on this.
(ii) Ensuring you prioritise therapy in aftercare, which will provide real support when you need it most.
We find that people who tend to relapse will have unfortunately neglected these aspects of aftercare.
I Have No Family Or Support Channels, Will Recovery Work For Me?
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.
Alcoholism or drug addiction recovery is certainly possible even if you don’t have continual support from family members.
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 useful to have access to, but rehab and AA are not the same.
Alcoholics Anonymous Splott has been responsible for a good deal of long term recovery success stories over the years.
Other people have reported, however, that there was something missing by using AA alone.
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 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.
Those who have successfully completed a residential rehab programme often attend AA as part of their ongoing relapse prevention planning.
Both programmes, in fact, provide very good foundations for full recovery, and may be used in any combination which is suitable for the individual.
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.
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 a properly structured residential programme, then later you could make use of AA Splott as part of your long-term recovery support.
Is It Wise To Just Stop My Substance Abuse Without Outside 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.
Risks include elevated risk of seizure, heart and cardiovascular complications, blood pressure variations.
**You should NEVER consider putting yourself through detox or cold-turkey alone**.
What If I Can't Afford It?
Another option can be available to you if the full rehab programme isn’t realistic right now.
Many clinics offer a detox-only programme, although this is not usually widely advertised.
This isn’t for financial reasons alone, but because shorter programmes are often associated with less successful outcomes, in the longer term.
Standard residential rehab usually takes 28 days in full. But here is what to consider if money is short at the moment.
Shorter detox programmes are available, **but only** if there are adequate support structures in place for when you complete this.
...in other words, a proper and structured plan to therapy with its associated follow-up support.
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.
How Do Clinics Approach Their Rehab Refund Policy?
Refund policies will vary from clinic to clinic, be sure to ask before committing.
You will find that most clinics will not offer a refund in cases where a relapse has taken place after a certain amount of time, as the cause of such a relapse is almost always a matter of individual behaviour.
What Are The Steps To Sign Up For Rehab?
Can I Start Rehab Right Now?
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.
What Are The Origins Of The Abbeycare Group?
In 2005 Abbeycare opened its first residential rehab clinic upon seeing the need for such a service.
Since that time, Abbeycare has grown into a well-known brand in the treatment of addiction within the United Kingdom.
