post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment Cardiff

Cardiff/Penarth Moors/CF11

Mental health problems in Cardiff can vary from common everyday low moods and worries up to more serious traumas and illnesses like post traumatic stress disorder.

Addiction often combines other health problems both physical and mental. Mental health problems we deal with every day include depression/anxiety disorders OCD and post-traumatic stress disorder (called PTSD for short). .

. Trauma is Greek for wound, PTSD is an inability or unwillingness to heal from trauma. Trauma is defined as any event that is traumatic to you. It does not mean you have to be in a war or an accident. It is your trauma and your wound. Treatments for PTSD include medication and EMDR. Combined with talking therapy PTSD symptoms are be dramatically reduced. Treatment rates normal depend on the number of traumas, the length of time the trauma took place over, or the age of the person being traumatised (see CPTSD).

Symptoms include Intense feelings of distress, extreme physical reactions to reminders of trauma, invasive, upsetting memories and or flashbacks (feeling like the trauma is happening again). PTSD is an extremely distressing disorder and required professional help. Get the help you need close to Cardiff.

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.

How long does rehab take?

The duration of your post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment stay will depend on the severity of your dependency, your own commitment, family support and willingness to live a life free from dependency, and the amount of time and money you have available to spend. If you have insurance then it will generally be 28-days.

Generally, the longer the rehab programme the less likely you are to relapse. NHS rehab normally accommodates longer inpatient treatments sometimes up to a year. More.

Average UK inpatient times

  • Detox: 7-10 days (Methadone/20 days and Benzodiazepines/2-8 weeks).
  • Hospital residential treatment, general mental health issues, depression/anxiety etc.: 7-14 days

post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment Cardiff

A 'normal' day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and trauma/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 gambling, internet, and sex.

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 Morganstown as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave my post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment? 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.

The best Rehab Location

Finding the best rehab programme for issues and mental health problems caused by trauma is vital to long-term success. But where close or far? Every addiction client is different. However, most qualified psychiatrists often recommend that removing clients away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably sensible.

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.
