It's easy to get overwhelmed searching for the right alcohol or drug addiction treatment near Trowbridge. But answers *are* available.
Below, we lay out 19 critical Q&A insights into:
This is the most detailed debriefing available on addiction treatment options in Trowbridge.
Let's dive in.
Will Rehab Actually Help?
As long as you actively participate and don’t remain passive, rehab can and will help you.
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.
You will need to take back your own responsibility for your life as part of the addiction recovery process.
You should not expect addiction treatment in Trowbridge 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.
The first step on this path is residential rehab.
What Should I Expect, From Inpatient Rehab Trowbridge?
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.
During the initial week in drug or alcohol rehab, you should expect…
The first 7 days are usually spent completing physical detox, resting more than normal, and following advice for prescribed 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.
Once the first week in rehab is over, you should expect…
Upon completing your detox, you’ll be in the safe hands of the clinicians who will guide you through the therapeutic process. 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 programmes near Trowbridge and Cardiff tend to be multi-faceted in nature, and will see you participating in mutual aid meetings, complementary or holistic therapies, sharing experiences with other clients, physical exercise routines, and and transition towards regaining some structure and order in your routine.
Rehab Trowbridge clinics, in general, will inform their clients of the following day’s activities on the preceding night.
In the last 7 days of a rehab clinic stay, here's what you can expect...
Measures to assist you in relapse prevention will take place in the final week, provided by the clinic.
Such measures will assist you in your transition towards living a normal 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 Best Suited To Rehab?
People who are serious about their long term recovery will benefit from inpatient clinic treatment.
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 for alcohol or drug abuse will take commitment and effort from those who undergo the treatment, from detox through to the sessions of therapy and counselling that follow, and out into the sunlight of normal life again.
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?
- DIY recovery attempts. The delusion that trying to get your life back on track without outside professional help might work, even though you know that help is available.
- Any approaches which do not take a holistic view of what is required and only go down one narrow route. 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.
- A rather dogmatic approach to treatment which tends to leave patients feeling alienated.
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.
To Ensure My Drug/Alcohol Rehab Success... What Should I Be Doing?
Is There A Checklist Of Things You Should Do When Planning To Enter Trowbridge Drug/Alcohol Rehab?
All good clinics will send a booking acknowledgment to you prior to your stay, detailing all the things to bring with you.
Ask the admissions team you're dealing with for this, if they do not provide it.
In What 3 Areas Of My Life Should I See Noticeable Change, Following Treatment?
If all goes according to plan you might expect to see signs of:
- Plan for dealing with the need to fulfil your desires and wishes in healthier ways, than a coping mechanism or addictive substance like alcohol or drug use.
- In understanding all these disparate but connected elements, your behaviour, your emotions and the way you interact with people should all change for the better, and – crucially – without any need of the substance which you were previously addicted to.
- 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.
What Are 3 Things New Rehab Clients Do Wrong When Going Into Treatment For Alcohol Or Drugs For The First Time?
(i) Anxiety at the prospect of drug/alcohol withdrawal, before treatment has even started.
(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.
How Likely Is It That Trowbridge Detox & Treatment Will Not Work For Me?
If a relapse occurs after leaving a clinic, there may be a couple of causes of this:
(i) You failed to implement aftercare advice following treatment.
(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) Whilst still in treatment, actively engaging in aftercare planning, and actively following through on the supports given, to make sure you stay on track in sobriety.
(ii) To avoid succumbing to trigger events (which are 100% certain to happen) make sure you make continued therapeutic care, your priority.
We find that people who tend to relapse will have unfortunately neglected these aspects of aftercare.
I Don't Have Any Support Or Family Members: Is Recovery Possible?
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 Did Not Succeed With Alcoholics Anonymous; Why 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.
Long-term success has certainly been achieved over the years just by using AA Trowbridge.
Some people have said that certain parts of their recovery were missing, having only attended AA over the years.
Some feel that the psychological causes of addiction were not fully addressed by the AA meetings alone.
Mutual aid and rehab treatment co-exist very well together. Whilst they are often used in different ways, or at different parts of the journey, these details come down to each individual's experience, and the order they tackle their issues, along the way.
People quite often choose to attend the AA group meetings in addition to having completed the residential rehab.
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, and other mutual aid groups, are often reported as the drivers behind maintaining long term sobriety and being the provider of hope.
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.
You can indeed reap the benefits of AA meetings near Trowbridge and the group support that they bring, but first you do need to undergo the residential clinical rehab, including the important detox stage at the start of the programme.
Is It Wise To Just Stop My Substance Abuse Without Outside Help?
We really do warn against this.
Trying to do this by yourself carries with it some grave medical concerns and we really advise against it.
Risks include elevated risk of seizure, heart and cardiovascular complications, blood pressure variations.
**Proper medical supervision must always be close at hand during any detox or withdrawal**.
What If I Can't Afford It?
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.
However, the success rates for these shorter courses can be lower than with the longer more established programmes.
A standard stay at a rehab clinic is usually 28 days. Here's what we recommend if you feel like budget is too tight right now.
You can ask about short-term detox, **but only** if support is planned for your continued recovery on the other side.
i.e. a structured, organised approach to addiction therapy, follow up supports, mutual aid supports, and a sponsor lined up for the long term.
Experience has shown that there is a risk of not being able to enjoy a full recovery if you don’t make plans for the support required after the short-term detox has completed.
Do Rehab Clinics Provide A Refund Policy?
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.
How Do I Actually Sign Up For Rehab?
What If I Need To Get Started Quickly?
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.
