Do You Need Help With a Substance Abuse Problem?

If you are worried about your drinking or drug use then this is usually a sign that you need to quit this behaviour. Some people may be able to reduce their intake or quit without any help, but this is not going to be the case with everyone. The reality is that if the individual has developed an addiction it will very difficult for them to break away from this behaviour. They may be able to stay sober for a few weeks or even a few months but long term recovery may be more elusive without the right type of help.

Residential Rehab Help in Buteshire

Getting residential help for an addiction problem in Buteshire can begin in a number of different ways. The individual may approach a rehabilitation clinic directly or they may be referred there through drug and alcohol counselling or by their GP. There are also those people who will have already become involved in one of the recovery fellowships before deciding that they need to spend some time in rehab. The path that the individual takes to this type of program will vary, but the course they need to take once there in order to be successful tends to be similar.

How to Get the Most from Rehabilitation Clinics

For a person to leave their home in Buteshire and agree to enter rehab they will need a strong motivation. Ideally the reason the person is taking this step is that they are determined to end the addiction, but there will also be other people who really only want a break from the substance abuse or who are entering rehab to please other people. In order to get the most out of the experience it is advisable that:

  • The individual is fully committed to getting the most out of the program. This means that they put all their other worries and concerns on the back burner during their time in rehab. This is a time to focus on just one thing, and those who are able to put all their energy into getting the most out of the experience are the most likely to stay sober.
  • It is best to have an open mind when entering these facilities. This means being willing to consider all that is being offered and to try new things.
  • The key activity that people need to involve themselves with in rehab is preparing for going home. This should happen from day one. The individual needs to think about how they will cope once they return home and begin putting things in place for this.
  • The riskiest time for relapse is during the transition from rehab to home. It is vital that the individual is prepared for this tricky period. They will need to consider what aftercare options are available and which they are going to use. Those people who feel that they do not require any aftercare are usually wrong about this.
  • Some people find it a real struggle to be in rehab. These may be individuals who prefer their own companies and find it hard to be with other people right around the clock. The benefits of finishing this program will usually far outweigh any discomfort. The individual needs to keep their thoughts on the reasons for coming to rehab and the things they can gain by lasting the course.
  • It is up to each individual to make the most of the resources available in rehab. If they fail to do this then it will only be themselves who are responsible for their difficulties adjusting to sobriety. It is vital that the individual takes responsibility for their own sobriety because only they can guarantee their own success.

How to Prepare for Reintegration Back Into the Community

When the individual is ready to leave recovery, they will need to be able to transition safely back into the community. This can difficult because the person will suddenly find themselves surrounded by familiar temptations. It is vital that the person is prepared for what lies ahead or all the good work of rehab will be wasted. Here are a few suggestions for how to prepare for this trick period in recovery:

  • The individual should begin preparing for their transition home from the first day in rehab. They will do this by getting the most out of the program and learning all they can about relapse prevention.
  • The person needs to learn about the relapse process as well as relapse triggers. The four most common relapse triggers can be remembered using the acronym HALT and these are hunger, anger, loneliness, and tiredness.
  • The individual needs to have a plan for what they will do if they begin to feel insecure in their recovery. This should include concrete steps for what the person will do if they feel they are about to relapse. For example, the person will need phone numbers of people they can contact when they are feeling vulnerable.
  • Probably the most common reason for why people relapse is that they feel unable to cope with life in recovery. They no longer have alcohol or drugs to help them deal with life so they become overwhelmed. It is vital that the individual learns appropriate coping skills during their time in rehab, and that they feel confident enough to use these. One of the great advantages of an alcohol and drug rehab is that the person can experiment with different coping tools in a controlled environment.
  • Another common reason for why people relapse after they leave rehab is that they do not have sufficient aftercare. It is important to keep in mind that rehab is just a stage in a process, and the individual will need additional support once they return home.
  • One of the most effective types of aftercare available would be the 12 Step fellowships. These organisations provide a number of valuable functions including; providing support and encouragement, acting as a social network, and providing the person with a program for living.
