Want sobriety? Alcoholism affects people of any race, sex, and class in Wales.

If you have a problem with alcohol, either binge drinking or excessive drinking there's a wide range of mental health services that can help.

Treatments offered for alcoholism may start with an intervention, discussion on 'moderation vs abstinence' and possibly the opinions of inpatient (men's drug and alcohol rehab centre) or outpatient treatment (therapy), a detox may be required. A good residential treatment centre with talking therapy, counselling and expertise in addiction is also a very good idea. Keeping the alcoholic apart from alcohol and all the triggers associated with acting out can mean hospitalisation or alcohol rehab programme is the best solution. Not admitting to a drinking problem (denial) can often be an effective barrier to getting help for addicts.

Common mental illnesses include anxiety disorders like generalised anxiety disorder, mood disorders/persistent depression, psychotic disorders like suffering from delusions or hallucinations and eating disorders like compulsive overeating

Starting the rehab process

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: First stop is GP. Ask to be referred for both counselling sessions for your drug and alcohol/addiction and to a local drug and alcohol team nearest to you in Merthyr Tydfil. Although NHS resources are limited, it is still possible to receive funding for treatment.

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 alcohol rehab programme 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 Taff Merthyr Garden Village. 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 Merthyr Tydfil
  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 Merthyr Tydfil 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.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Ownership: The treatment provided through hospital forces clients to take ownership of their circumstances, feeling, actions and relationships as opposed to blaming others.

    Without anyone or anything else to blame, he or she must come to terms with the fact that they alone are responsible for changing their addictive behaviour AND they are responsible for their own recovery.

  2. Local community-based or local outpatient services based in Merthyr Tydfil does not offer this opportunity or level or isolation. It is proven that taking a person out of their home and away from 'using friends' or 'dealers' offers a better chance of staying sober long term.

"I really believe 12-step facility is the best facility for treatment. I am very hopeful for my future and I have already been recommending rehab to others in need.. First things first!." Keenan January 2016 Merthyr Tydfil

Why rehab might not work:

  • Not enough time in treatment
  • The rehab program doesn't meet individual needs in Edwardsville
  • See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?

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.

Merthyr Tydfil

A 'normal' day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and alcohol/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Merthyr Tydfil 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 bitcoin, food, 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 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 Taff Merthyr Garden Village as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave my alcohol rehab programme? 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 Perfect location for treatment

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

Every alcoholic 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 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.
