How to Prepare for Rehab

It is important to thoroughly prepare yourself once you have decided that you want to go to rehab. Telling your boss and close work colleagues that you are going into rehab is a great place to start. It will not only allow them to make arrangements in your absence, but you may also build a support system through your co-workers.

Letting your loved ones know is another way to physically prepare yourself. Family and friends are affected a lot with drug and alcohol addiction. By letting them know, you will be less likely to back out of following through with your rehab treatment.

Mentally preparing yourself is just as important. By planning out what you want to get out of rehab, you will go into our programme determined to complete your course of treatment. Emotionally preparing yourself will also allow you to be a lot more open and expectant of your treatments.

By combining the physical and mental aspects of organising before entering rehab, you will be more motivated to reach the end goal of sobriety.

What to Bring to Rehab?

The centre you choose is here to support you in every single way. And that starts even before you enter the rehab facility. Our staff will send out a list of items that you can bring with you to help make your stay easier.

These include:

  • Names and numbers of people you would like support from while inside the centre
  • Sentimental jewellery (e.g. wedding ring)
  • Prescribed medication in original packaging
  • A form of ID
  • A notebook
  • Pictures of loved ones to make you feel at home
  • Any books you would like to read
  • Enough clothes to last you through the period of treatment
  • Some rehabs allow for electronics such as laptops and mobile phones. Please check with your chosen centre to verify if you can take these in with you.

What does a day in Rehab Look Like at Eastleigh?

Our spacious facilities in Eastleigh will give you the needed respite and recovery space for full healing. You will be surrounded by people also recovering from drug and alcohol abuse.

Being in an environment with people in the same boat as you is a great encouraging factor. The support systems that will be created can be life-long.

Although different centres will have different timetables, a typical day in rehab may look something like this:

  • Morning: Start the day with a healthy breakfast to energise you for the treatments ahead. You will then have a meeting to look at your progress and discuss ways to further this. Exercise is an important factor so activities such as meditation and yoga may be done
  • Noon/Evening: After lunch, treatments may begin. This is according to your treatment plan which was drawn up in the initial stages before fully entering rehab. Therapy can include anything from group therapy to art therapy. You will also have some free time in between where you can do recreational activities such as read books, write, or watch some TV
  • Nighttime: After dinner and any needed medication, it will be time for bed. Sleep is vital for any recovery. It rejuvenates you for the day ahead

Family Involvement in Residential Rehab in Eastleigh

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we understand how important families and loved ones are, especially during the treatment process. Families are just as affected with a loved one’s dependency as the addict themselves.

This is why we encourage family members to be as involved with the recovery process. We make sure that patients are connected with their loved ones on the outside through phone calls and letter writing.

Group therapy is a highly used form of therapy that helps patients feel a sense of community. Family therapy is a form of therapy, only in this case, it is not fellow residents but rather your loved ones.

Families have a huge knock-on effect when it comes to addiction. They often have to pick up the pieces and deal with the negative emotions that have arisen due to substance abuse. Therapy will help delve into those thoughts and feelings and look at how they can change the family dynamics.

Another reason for family therapy is to intervene on detrimental family habits that could have an adverse reaction to patients, particularly when their residential rehab has come to an end. Through family therapy, work can be done to facilitate building good habits and emotions while also reassembling lost relationships.

Some of the forms of therapy include:

  • Family Behavioural Therapy: Also known as FBT, this type of therapy is quite common. A counsellor will help facilitate a FBT session by making sure all family members are heard. They will also help to highlight toxic behaviours from both parties and can assist in finding ways to change those behaviours
  • Multi-systemic Therapy: This type of therapy is often used for teenagers but can also be used for adults too. This involves a counsellor delving into the reason behind the patient’s addiction, how it started and what has caused it to continue
  • Multidimensional Family Therapy: Used mainly in outpatient programmes, this form of therapy invites the family’s perspective into the discussion. Family members will be asked how their behaviours enabled the actions of the patient. This is anything from providing them money to buy the substance or their own drug/substance abuse having influenced the patient, particularly if they are an adolescent
  • Brief Strategic Family Therapy: Also known as BSFT, this treatment tackles familial interactions that are often the driving force of a child being involved in substance abuse. Through analysing the child behaviour, a counsellor can help rebuild those healthy family dynamics
  • Functional Family Therapy: This type of treatment looks into the functionality of the family. Therapists will analyse family behaviours that were created and maintained. After recognising these traits, the family will be taught new ways to communicate and resolve disagreements
