Rehab Aftercare Treatment in Essex

Why Use Rehab Aftercare Treatment?

Although there is rightly a great deal of emphasis placed on getting addicted people to face up to their problems and to engage with an addiction treatment service, such support can only really be judged as being successful if the aftercare treatment that goes with it is sufficient.

All too often, a treatment programme alone will only have a short-term level of success with addictive behaviours or substance misuse returning down the line. 

Although no one could even claim to have a hundred per cent success rate with addiction treatment, it is by carefully tailoring such support to the individual concerned which will make a real difference. Of course, a key part of this is the aftercare treatment that will go with the programme concerned.

Rehab Aftercare Treatment - What Can You Expect?

Finding the right sort of addiction service, working out what sort of aftercare treatment should be in place is a highly individual matter.

Effective Rehab Aftercare

  • In some cases, standard packages will be ideal, especially if you have friends and family around you who understand and can support you while you recover from an addiction.
  • Other people will require a great deal more from their aftercare such as ongoing relapse prevention or trauma-based therapy, however. 
  • It is important to get the balance right between providing adequate levels of support and not being too ‘in-your-face’.

At Infinity Addiction Solutions, we understand this and will recommend either short term, mid-term or long term aftercare recovery programmes that are appropriate to the level of addiction you have suffered from, the type of addiction treatment you have undergone and your wider personal circumstances.

Some people might need to engage with talking therapies to keep them on the straight and narrow, for example, whereas others might need to have closer monitoring, such as with a regular breathalyser test to confirm whether or not they have been drinking.

Again, it all comes down to individual circumstances but, in the main, most people need the greatest level of support immediately after completing their therapy programme and the rehab aftercare that is put in place can be slowly withdrawn over time. How quickly this happens is, once more, a question of individual priorities.

Rehab Aftercare Treatment That Can Help You to Recover In the Long-Term

There are many different ways that rehab aftercare can be packaged to suit your needs, such as putting monitoring regimes in place or providing group therapy sessions where you can discuss your recovery, your hopes and your fears in a non-judgemental environment with others. However, activity-based aftercare is also often favoured these days. What are some of the most common approaches?

This is a talking therapy where you will usually engage with a professional therapist on a one-on-one basis to help you form mental coping strategies that will keep you on the right path to recovery.

Typically, CBT will involve dealing with trigger situations or emotions which might lead to temptation and assist you in developing alternative thinking, thus changing automatic impulsive behaviours. It is often used in cases of so-called dual diagnosis – where someone is an addict and also suffers from an underlying mental health condition.

This approach is designed to help you in focusing and paying more attention to being in the present moment. It assists in becoming more aware of your thoughts and feelings as well as the world around you. This can improve mental wellbeing and helps with stress management or panic disorders.

This approach is sometimes used as a therapeutic programme in its own right as well as for aftercare support. In the main, it focuses on self-expression to help overcome the negative sides of addiction. It encourages creativity, helps to calm you if you are feeling pressured and is used to put other life problems, outside of addiction, into a semblance of order.

In some cases, an addicted person might agree to a contract of agreed behaviour which will mean they are rewarded in some way. Families that have suffered stress as a result of addiction can find these beneficial as they create a written agreement that provides a wider recovery framework.

Contracts might stipulate steering clear of places where alcohol is served, for example, or abstaining from pornographic websites. They can help ongoing recovery after a treatment programme but they must be drawn up sensitively, something that Infinity Addiction Solutions can help you with, of course.
