Anyone who finds themselves in addiction might end up thinking long and hard about how they ended up where they are. This is a perfectly reasonable question to ask, however, it is not so easy to get a clear answer.
Addiction can be caused by many different factors, often multiple at the same time. It could be a genetic disposition, a result of lifestyle choices, or it may have come about by using drugs as a coping mechanism through times of stress and challenge.
Whatever the causes may be, the fact remains that addiction can do great damage to you and everyone around if you, if left untreated.
You will have the time and resources to get a better idea of how you ended up in addiction, and more importantly, how to avoid falling back into the vicious cycle of substance abuse.
We understand that going to rehab is a big commitment, not least because you will have to put your regular life, with all of its commitments, on hold while you get treatment.
Because of this, you probably want to be able to get an idea of how long your treatment will take, so that you can plan accordingly.
While this is perfectly understandable, it is not possible to give an exact figure until we have been through your assessment and picked out a clinic for you.
At that point, we will be able to tell you how long treatment will likely take, and what the total cost will add up to. To give you a frame of reference, most people end up staying at rehab for a period of about 28 days.
This covers detox, therapy, and preparation for leaving. It is not possible to estimate the cost of treatment in this way, as each rehab clinic will differ in terms of pricing. This is something that we can only calculate after your assessment is done.
There is a lot of misinformation about what actually goes on at rehab, mostly caused by the portrayal of rehab in the media. Below we have outlined the main benefits of attending rehab, which can be roughly divided into three different stages:
One of the first things you need to do at rehab, as you might expect, is to get through detox. This can be a stressful and challenging time, for a number of reasons. Firstly, you are still adjusting to your new surroundings, as well as your body adjusting to being without your substance of choice for the first time in a long time. This may bring about a number of withdrawal symptoms, which present a temporary pain barrier to push through. This may include things like muscle pain/spasms, headaches, nausea, and acute anxiety. The good news is that these symptoms are very much temporary and that the medical team will be able to help you through them in a way that doesn’t damage your chances of achieving a full recovery.
Once you have been through detox, which is an achievement in itself, you will then move on to therapy. This is a vital part of the whole rehab experience – it’s not just about getting sober, but learning more about ourselves to ensure that we don’t slide back into substance abuse in the future. To that end, you will experience a number of different therapies, each designed to give you a better understanding of your condition and of yourself. Your therapy schedule will include things like cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy, counselling, and group therapy sessions. Each of these different disciplines will help you in a different way. Your schedule is also likely to include complementary activities to help your overall wellbeings, such as yoga and mindfulness meditation.
As you come to the end of your therapy plan, you will now have a much better understanding of addiction, and the specifics of how it affects you. Now comes the time to put this knowledge into practice, in the form of a relapse prevention plan. With the help of the staff you have come to know, you will identify things to stay away from once you leave, as well as positive choices that you can make to maximise your chances of staying in recovery. For example, you might be advised to cut ties with a friend who is still abusing drugs or alcohol. By the same token, you may be encouraged to commit to regular group therapy meetings, perhaps through Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. Long-term recovery isn’t something that just happens; it requires real commitment and positive action on an ongoing basis.
We understand that it takes a lot to admit that you have a problem, and even more to be able to reach out for help. Whenever you are ready to take that step, we are here waiting to take your call.
