Starting the rehab process

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: A GP is a good place to start. They can discuss your drug abuse problems with you and get you into treatment. They may offer you treatment at the practice or refer you to your local drug service. If you're not comfortable talking to a GP, you can approach your local drug abuse treatment service yourself.

Private rehab Process
Self-funding: you can self refer. This means you can literally call and book, or simply turn up with a credit card to your drug alcohol rehabilitation of choice. See admissions.

Health insurance: choose your rehab and then ask GP to write a referral letter for you to take away. Alternatively, ask the doctor of advice on which hospital or clinic he recommends. More.

Arriving at the treatment centre

This will differ at different facilities but it is much the same everywhere

  1. You will be assessed so that your treatment needs and medical requirements are understood and a treatment plan is created
  2. You may need to detox
  3. You may be assigned a consultant psychiatrist near Canton. They are in overall charge of your care and medication plan. They may make suggestions based on your diagnosis for additional medication or individual therapy on top of group work
  4. You may then assigned to a group of other addicts etc.
  5. You are then possibly assigned a therapist or support worker/nurse locally in Cardiff
  6. You may be given 12 step recovery literature
  7. You are probably shown your room which you may have to share
  8. You might then meet the rest of the alcoholics/addicts

Everyone is very friendly. The staff in Cardiff have seen it all before so you are just another addict trying to recover. As patients, you are all in the same boat as everyone feels as raw and vulnerable as each other so making friends is normally easy.

Does rehab work in Cardiff?

Yes it does. There is a strong evidence base to support the treatment methods used at Castle Craig, as well as in support of residential rehabilitation treatment for drug abuse/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "73.4% of those who attended treatment at Castle Craig were totally abstinent from all drugs or alcohol at follow-up (after about 1 year). More."

What's it like? Click here for more information.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Safe, Caring Environment: Residential treatment at a private clinic is conducted in a safe environment that is free of the distractions of everyday life. Addicts are living in a bubble, they are completely insulated from the outside world. This means that there are fewer distractions or triggers. Patients can concentrate all of their energies on getting well. They are effectively removed from all of the outside distractions and stressors and 'immersed in recovery'.

  2. Professional Addiction Support: Rehab in Cardiff offers a level of group support not available through community-based services. Addicts have many similarities with other addicts regardless of the drug (or behaviour) of choice.

    People with a range of mental health problems can be very different from patients suffering from an addiction, although their symptoms, depression, anxiety etc may appear similar. An addict can often only find solace in another addict. Many rehab counsellors are recovering addicts/alcoholics.

    AA and NA whilst very important as a way of staying sober are sometimes not sufficient in early sobriety, especially when detox is required. However, they are voluntary charities. They are not professional and cannot always identify or address other mental health issues. Members are not trained.

"I've got a lot of respect for the therapy staff at rehab They know their stuff, knew why I had problems with drug abuse, at least they did with me. Good not be drinking." Kayleigh January 2017 Cardiff

Why rehab might not work:

  • Little to no aftercare
  • Lack of support system at the patient's home near St Fagans
  • See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?

Patients are usually admitted into treatment at a private clinic or hospital from four weeks to 6 months, depending on the severity of the addiction. The best results are achieved when people stay in treatment for at least 12 weeks. Detox can take place before admission or on arrival alongside other therapies. More.

A 'normal' day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and drug abuse/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Cardiff will follow a similar pattern.

A significant focus during treatment is on achieving clarity about the issues, people and surroundings in your life that have fuelled the desire to abuse drugs or alcohol/problems with internet, love and sex and shopping.

Daytime

Sleeping in is not part of the programme. You get up early, get dressed, attend breakfast. Some clinics have morning meditation. Some clinics ask patients to clear away breakfast things on a rota.

  1. Breakfast is followed by group (often 90 minutes)
  2. (Break)
  3. Another Group (60 minutes)
  4. (Lunch)
  5. One to one session or Group ;(60 minutes)
  6. Group, yoga or Pilates session or lecture ;(60 minutes)
  7. Possible meeting with your consultant, social worker, help team
  8. There is often written step or life story work to do

Evening time: Normally patients are bused to a meeting of AA, NA, or relevant 12 step programme.

Diet: Several rehabs have adopted nutritional diets to combat mental health issues. There may be an absence of sugar and caffeine. Smoking is still allowed outside as it is said that patients would not attend otherwise.

Devices: In some clinics phones or laptops use is forbidden or discouraged. Bear in mind that a person with internet or a gaming addiction may find other patient using their devices triggering.

Visitor/family contact: It was common for patients to be advised to limit any or all contact with friends or family during the first week of treatment. Again this differs by provider. NHS rehabs are often further from your home in Canton as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave my drug alcohol rehabilitation? Yes, there are not secure facilities.

Can I come back? Not always, the NHS is sometimes stricter, if you drink or use you may be barred from returning either, at all, or within 48 hours.

Ideal location for treatment

Finding the best rehab programme for issues from drug abuse is vital to long-term success. But where, close or far?

Every addiction client is different. However, most consultants often recommend that removing alcoholics away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably a good idea.

It is better that the location is quiet and has an atmosphere that is both calm, peaceful and still 100% recovery-focused. However, that does not mean that city rehabs do not have appeal.

The difficulty with towns and city location is that offer easy access to alcohol and drugs, whereas locations without shops and fewer people make accessing substances that little bit harder. Perhaps this could be the difference between a moment's weakness leading to relapse or sobriety.

Recommended rehabs. One rehab that ticks all of these boxes is Castle Craig based outside Edinburgh. Only a 4-hour train ride or less from Cardiff. Over 10,000 patients have passed through our doors since 1988, and the majority have gone on to achieve, long-term abstinent recovery from their addictions. Another is Smarmore Castle in Ireland.
