The hunt for addiction treatment near Trowbridge can be confusing. But our companion guide can lend a hand...
Below, we've laid out our 19 most forthright answers, to unflinching questions about rehab near Trowbridge:
This is the most detailed debriefing available on addiction treatment options in Trowbridge.
Let's get started.
Will Rehab Do Any Good?
Provided that you do not expect everything to be done for you, treatment in a residential rehab should be beneficial for you.
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. Although, you will need to actively apply yourself to the rehab process.
You will need to take responsibility for your own life, as a lack of this is a keynote feature of substance addiction.
Rehab near Trowbridge should not be considered a permanent "cure" that can fix all drug problems in your life immediately.
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.
All of this takes patience, diligence, and active participation.
Rehab should be considered the first stage in a journey which you choose to make.
What Does Rehab Trowbridge Consist Of?
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.
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.
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.
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. This could be group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, individual counselling, or similar, as a means to help you understand why you started in alcohol or drug abuse, and how to get out.
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.
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 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 Likely To Benefit From 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 centres are for those ready to do the work involved, but need the help to physically feel better, detox, and get the therapy insights needed to move forward productively.
Inpatient drug or alcohol rehab is for those who are ready to accept responsibility again for their own life, and reap the gains accordingly.
Aren't There Aspects Of Rehab That No Longer Work?
- 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.
- 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.
- An approach which is doomed to failure at worst will be one which depersonalises individuals as unique.
What Do I Need To Do To Make Alcohol & Drug Rehabilitation A Success, For Me?
How Should You Plan For Your Stay In A Trowbridge Rehab Clinic?
Reputable addiction clinics will give you a booking confirmation, including a list of what items to bring to rehab when admitting.
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 3 Main Areas Of Life Should I Expect Changes In, After Addiction Rehab?
If you've integrated with the group, actively participated and taken responsibility along the way, you could expect:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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) Fear at the prospect of taking the coping mechanism away, and entering withdrawal, during the first phase of rehab.
(ii) Being over-confident that treatment has completely succeeded when only a couple of insights or milestones 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.
What Are The Chances Of Trowbridge Residential Rehab Failing?
A few specifics often lie underneath potential relapses after completing rehab:
(i) For whatever reason, you didn’t make use of any of the follow-up help and support resources after treatment completed.
(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) During your stay, make sure you pay attention to aftercare planning and always fully follow through on the help and support offered.
(ii) Making continuing therapeutic care a priority in your aftercare plan, to ensure you have active support, when you do experience triggers (this is inevitable).
In our experience, those who relapse repeatedly over time, have almost always missed one of the above elements.
I Don't Have Any Support Or Family Members: Is Recovery Possible?
Every one of the huge number of people in recovery at any one time will have a different history of drug or alcohol dependency as they start their rehab recovery journey.
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?
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.
Alcoholics Anonymous Trowbridge 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.
Some feel that the psychological causes of addiction were not fully addressed by the AA meetings alone.
Rehab and mutual aid meetings can *both* be beneficial, and are *not* mutually exclusive. They can be especially useful when applied at different times in each individual's recovery journey.
After rehab has been completed, people quite regularly choose to attend AA meetings as well, as an ongoing part of their relapse prevention programme.
Full and long-term recoveries have been recorded by people who have used both resources, either individually or in conjunction with each other.
Can’t I Just Stick With Alcoholics Anonymous, Or Other Mutual Aid Groups, To Recover?
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.
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 Ceasing My Addictive Behaviour Without Assistance Useful...Or Dangerous?
We really do warn against this.
Undergoing withdrawal alone and by yourself can carry with it serious clinical consequences.
Dangerous medical risks include heart attack and the dangers which are always associated with seizures and fits.
**You should NEVER consider putting yourself through detox or cold-turkey alone**.
And If I Cannot Afford That?
If a complete treatment programme is a financial challenge right now, there are other options.
There is sometimes a shorter programme which involves only completing the initial detox, although not available in all cases.
However, shorter programmes can result in lower success rates, for long term recovery.
Here is what we recommend if you want a less expensive and shorter course.
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.
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.
What Is The Refund Policy On Rehab?
Each clinic will operate their own refund policies, so ask before your course begins.
If you relapse you should not expect a refund, as the cause of the relapse is down to the client in each case.
Getting Started In Rehab: What Do I Need To Do?
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.
