The process of getting into rehab

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: Successfully dealing with addiction often requires outside help. Start by talking to your GP and asking to be referred. There's a wide range of NHS services that can help near Mynachdy and Rhoshirwaun

Private rehab Process
Skip The Waiting List. Self-funding: you can self refer. This means literally call or turn up at your rehabilitation services for drugs and alcohol of choice with a credit card. 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 Caerdydd. 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 patients 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

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 and alcohol/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "89% of those questioned after completing treatment at Castle Craig are either living with reduced alcohol or drug use or totally abstinent. More."

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Tailored Treatment: Private clinics in Cardiff tend to use a bespoke treatment model rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Many alcoholics/addicts have co-occurring issues like sleep disorders or body dysmorphic disorders. Addiction is often seen as a response to inner turmoil.

    The ability to custom tailor a treatment plan enables clinic staff to achieve maximum benefits from every therapy chosen. Remember time is limited to 28-days if you have health insurance.

    Every patient receiving treatment at a UK residential facility is part of a group that is constantly in one another presence, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  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 therapists 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 just got back from spending five weeks at rehab, very tired, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. I'm touched beyond words." Everett December 2021 UK

Why rehab might not work:

  • Inadequate or absence of medical detox
  • Denial: you don't think that you have a problem
  • See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?

The duration of your rehabilitation services for drugs and alcohol 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
  • Most common Addiction programme/residential treatment: 28-days
  • long-term residential treatment: 90 days
  • NHS funded treatment, non private: 3months - 1 year

rehabilitation services for drugs and alcohol Cardiff

A typical day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and drug and alcohol/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 programmes.

Diet: A number of 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 addicts 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 Caerdydd as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave: Yes, these are not secure facilities or locked wards.

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 Perfect location for treatment

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

Every alcoholic is different. However, most consultants often recommend that removing clients away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably recommended.

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.
