What is a residential rehab programme?
A residential rehab programme involves clients residing at the rehab of your choosing, and receiving all their treatment and care under the same roof.
Residential rehab programmes boast the highest rates of success when compared to other addiction treatment options, and can be beneficial for anyone experiencing addiction.
These programmes offer a complete detachment from your home environment, a stress-free and welcoming atmosphere, continual monitoring of your progress, an excellent team of highly trained medical staff and therapists on hand for anything you may need, treatment for both the body and the brain, and a complete guide on how to live a substance-free life when you return home.
How should I prepare for a residential rehab programme?
Though entering a drug and alcohol rehab in Dewsbury can be daunting, there are a few things you can do before your admission to ensure your time is a little easier, and that your life awaits you on return.
Telling the people in your life about your plans is crucial. Let friends and family know where you are going and why, and you may be surprised by their reaction. If you are lucky they will show their support for your journey to recovery, and can even visit you in rehab or take part in family therapy sessions.
Make sure to also tell any employers or colleagues about your situation, and, if you can, give them an expected time of when you will be ready to work again. If possible, arrange cover for the workload that you will be unable to fulfil.
Admin-type preparations ensure that your life does not fall apart in your absence. Organise for someone you trust to frequently visit your home to water plants or check for mail. Leave pets in the care of a family member, and think about setting up automatic payments for bills that will need to be paid whilst you are away.
The biggest preparation you can do for rehab is internal. Rehab is no easy, overnight ‘cure’ for addiction, nor is it a holiday from your regular life to be enjoyed. It will be a challenging process, and you will need to mentally prepare yourself for the hard work that is to come.
What treatments should I expect?
At the beginning of your enquiry we perform a simple assessment of you and your addiction, and a second one is done by a doctor when you enter rehab. Through these evaluations, we can determine the state of your physical and mental health, the seriousness of your addiction, and most importantly, what your specific needs for treatment are.
Thanks to this information, we can begin to create a bespoke treatment plan for you, which will detail what treatments you will receive in rehab.
Because of this, we cannot at this time tell you exactly what treatments to expect, but a few of the most popular methods are: Group therapy, individual therapy, art therapy, family therapy, contingency management, Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
You are also likely to experience a drug and alcohol, which you will undergo at the beginning of your rehab journey.
How long is a residential rehab programme?
The average amount of time for a residential rehab programme in Dewsbury is around 28 days.
Some clients may need more time in rehab than this, and some clients will surely be able to leave before this 28 day period. There is no shame if you are someone who requires slightly longer than the average time, as this is usually thanks to many factors that are out of your control at this point in the process, such as the substances you have used.
If you do not wish to stay in rehab for longer than the expected time, make sure you are open to any and all treatments that are recommended to you, and that you are willing to participate in each form of therapy.
Though there are other ways you can shorten the time spent on a residential rehab programme, we don’t recommend rushing through treatment or lying to staff that you are doing or feeling better than you actually are. This can be a dangerous game and can actually damage your chances of a full and long-term recovery.
Instead, we suggest focusing not on the ‘finish line’, but rather on the progress you are sure to make along the way, as this can spur you on to continue with your improvement.
How much does a residential rehab programme cost?
It is understandable that many individuals dealing with an addiction will not consider a drug and alcohol rehab in Dewsbury and will instead attempt risky at home recoveries because of the expected high cost of rehab.
Whilst it is true that a residential rehab programme does require a higher investment of not only your money but also your time and effort too, it is well worth the price for what it can offer.
However, if you are concerned at all about your financial situation, or have a particular budget you want to stick to, feel free to mention it to the admissions team when you enquire. More often than not, we can accommodate all clients, and can work around your concerns.
What do I do after the programme?
After your residential rehab programme in Dewsbury reaches its conclusion, you will not be abandoned. OK Rehab will still be there for you if you need, via the 24/7 helpline, and through the detailed aftercare plan that you will receive.
If you do require any further support, additional appointments can be made for you at your chosen clinic after you leave, for simple check-ins or for a continuation of your treatment.
To help yourself stay sober, we suggest changing a few aspects of your life to prioritise your recovery.
Starting a new hobby, sports team or club is a great way to positively impact your overall mental health and can offer a much-needed distraction and change from your old routine.
We also recommend taking a step back and examining the social groups you are a part of. It is crucial that the people in your life are supportive of your recovery, and are not the ones tempting you to relapse. If there are friends – or even family members – that may be detrimental to your health and wellbeing, it may be time to move on.
The responsibility will be on you to continue the progress you will have made in rehab, so don’t get too complacent. Be on the lookout for any possible warning signs of a relapse reappearing, and make sure to reach out for help if you need it.
