Getting simple, practical guidance on addiction treatment near St Fagans is difficult....but not impossible.
Below, we've laid out our 19 most forthright answers, to unflinching questions about rehab near St Fagans:
Ready to overhaul your ideas about finding alcohol/drug rehab near St Fagans?
Let's get started.
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.
For those suffering from addiction, detox followed by a well-managed stay in a rehab centre is the way forward in to recovery. But, a rehab centre is only part of the way to success.
Reclaiming responsibility for yourself is necessary to recovery, as it is likely that lack of this is what forms the basis of addiction in the first place.
You should not expect addiction treatment in St Fagans to completely “cure” you of all your addictive impulses or feelings.
It will always take a great deal of time and perseverance to deal with a drinking or substance habit that was a long time in the making.
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 Exactly Happens During Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Treatment St Fagans?
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…
The first week consists of completing the physical detox and resting more than you usually do, and also taking your medication.
No two people are alike, so the time it takes for the detox phase to last will depend on things like the length of dependency, the history of addiction and the degree to which the dependency has taken hold of the body.
This is what you should find after the first 7 days of rehab ...
Upon completing your detox, you’ll be in the safe hands of the clinicians who will guide you through the therapeutic process. The best way to proceed here may be group sessions or on an individual counselling basis, or both, as a means to unlock the reasons for your original addiction.
Residential programmes near St Fagans and Cardiff tend to be multi-faceted in nature, and you’ll be sharing your experiences with the other clients, participating in physical routines and in complementary therapy sessions and mutual aid, and a move back toward structure and order, in your daily routine.
Rehab St Fagans clinics, in general, will inform their clients of the following day’s activities on the preceding night.
In the final seven days in residential addiction treatment, you should expect the following…
Help and support to prevent you from relapsing will be provided by your clinic in the final week.
You’ll be helped, in this way, back towards your life outside residential care and allow you to plan ahead to prevent any triggers which may cause a relapse.
Who Is Best Suited To Rehab?
Residential rehab is for those who are genuinely serious about long term recovery.
Such people have tried time and time again to quit their misuse 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 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.
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.
Is There Anything That No Longer Works In Terms Of Rehab Treatment?
- 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.
- Programmes of treatment which are extreme in nature and which tend to be geared towards one form of therapy or approach. 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.
At the heart of drug alcohol recovery should be mutual support and a sense of community, with the communal respect that goes with it.
To Ensure My Drug/Alcohol Rehab Success... What Should I Be Doing?
How Should I Make Plans For My Upcoming St Fagans Rehab Treatment Admission?
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 Drug/Alcohol Rehab?
As long as everything is done correctly, you might expect to see initial signs of:
- You’ll find that it is much easier to fulfil your needs, beyond the dysfunctional, and so you should plan for this.
- By taking care of these things you should find that your behaviour, modes of communicating and especially your emotional responses should all change, and this is a reflection that you needs are being addressed in a positive way, free of the addictive substance.
- 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.
What Are 3 Things New Rehab Clients Do Wrong When Going Into Treatment For Alcohol Or Drugs For The First Time?
(i) Fear associated with the initial detox and withdrawal phase leading to a desire to leave treatment before it has begun.
(ii) Being over-confident that treatment has completely succeeded when only a couple of insights or milestones have been made.
(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 St Fagans Inpatient Rehab Doesn't Work For Me?
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) You were't able to understand enough about your own personal alcohol or drug triggers, during treatment.
You’ll be able to prepare for such situations by:
(i) During treatment, ensuring you plan for aftercare and engage with all the help on offer.
(ii) Staying connected to all the aftercare support offered to you, which will help when dealing with trigger events.
Relapses often arise as a result of omitting or neglecting one of the above precautionary measures.
Can Recovery Work For Me? I Have No Family Or Friends Support
Of the millions in recovery globally, everyone has a different level of alcohol/drug dependency and amount of support available in their lives, when they enter treatment.
Even those people without a robust support network manage to recover from their drug or alcohol addiction, so it's possible for you too.
Is Rehab Different From Alcoholics Anonymous, If So, How?
Rehab is different to the AA approach, and this is how…
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 St Fagans alone.
Some people have said that certain parts of their recovery were missing, having only attended AA over the years.
Residential rehab, with its focus on one-on-one therapy, is different to the group-based AA meetings, and it may be that the causes of addiction are more properly uncovered with the former type of approach.
*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 who complete the residential rehab requirements do quite often attend AA later on as part of their relapse prevention measures.
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?
Alcoholics Anonymous as a source of hope, courage, and a path toward sobriety.
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 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 St Fagans has to offer in terms of group support.
Is It Wise To Just Stop My Substance Abuse Without Outside Help?
We must expressly advise against this.
Withdrawal without the expert help of experienced and qualified clinicians is extremely risky and we explicitly advise against this.
There are the dangers of having seizures and blood pressure issues, with serious risk of heart issues.
**You should NEVER consider putting yourself through detox or cold-turkey alone**.
I’m Not Sure I Can Afford Treatment
If a complete treatment programme is a financial challenge right now, there are other options.
Many clinics offer a detox-only programme, although this is not usually widely advertised.
This isn’t because it just costs less, but because this can be associated with lower success rates.
Standard residential rehab usually takes 28 days in full. But here is what to consider if money is short at the moment.
Ask about short term detox plans, **but only** if you already have additional emotional supports setup for once detox completes.
...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.
Is There A Refund Policy For Rehab?
Refund policies will vary from clinic to clinic, be sure to ask before committing.
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?
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.
