An addiction is defined as continuing to use a substance or to engage in an activity despite continuing negative consequence. People are known to use their addiction to escape from negative feelings. The most obvious feature of addiction is continuing to engage in the addiction despite the fact that it's causing you very real and serious problems. If certain behaviour is causing problems in your relationship, in your work or in your finances and you continue to engage in this behaviour despite these issues, you are highly likely to be experiencing from an addiction.
Engaging in addictive behaviours is usually continued because the addiction masks other problems in the sufferer's life. Addiction may make the addict feel better or allow him or her to block out stress and depression caused by trauma experienced during earlier life. In this way, addiction allows these people to 'numb' pain for a short amount of time. When the pain returns, the cycle begins again.
When you attend our residential treatment in Banbury, we help you determine why you are engaging in addictive activities. We then help you identify alternative activities that are not as detrimental as alcohol use.
We also examine the damage you may have inflicted whilst you have been addicted to alcohol. Generally, the greater the extent of this damage, the harder it will be to make a full recovery from your addiction to alcohol. However, you must be willing to take the first step. The first step must be to stop using alcohol. For this reason, all of our treatment programmes in Banbury include an element of physical detoxification.
We then assist you in forming habits and engaging in activities that feel like the 'next right thing' to consuming alcohol. These activities may not feel as good as engaging in alcohol use, but recovery is seldom about engaging in 'what feels best right now.' Recovery is about doing what's best for your long-term mental and physical well-being.
During our intensive inpatient groups in Banbury, we arm you with different skills and tools that assist your long-term recovery. These skills include coping skills, avoidance skills, anger management and challenging your negative and irrational thoughts.
At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we have worked with addicts for the past fifteen years. In this time, we have discovered that addicts have accumulated many irrational thoughts. Negative 'molehills' become mountains and everyday worries become 'the sky is falling.' Addicts also tend to interpret every negativity in this World as a reflection of themselves.
During therapy, we help you identify what you can and cannot control, and help you change situations in your life that you do have the ability to control. We also teach you how to 'be OK' with the items in life that you cannot have control over. For instance, your addiction may have ruined your relationship with your spouse. However, you cannot 'make' him or her return to you, and believing otherwise will fuel your addictive habits. During therapy, we give you the tools to accept and cope with such situations that are outside your realm of control.
During therapy, patients are taught to believe they are capable of handling stress without resorting to alcohol consumption. Patients are taught they are able to drive past a bar or go shopping without buying alcohol. Patients are also taught that life gets easier as their recovery period matures.
Early recovery is by far the most unpleasant period for recovering alcoholics, and it's during this period that relapse is most likely to occur. That's why we arm our patients with proven relapse prevention and coping mechanisms to see them through this tough period. As patients pass through hurdles they have never passed before, they will come to believe how strong they really are. This belief in their strength to cope without alcohol is at the heart of successful long-term recovery.
At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we believe it's important for you to realise that addiction is your way of surviving up to this point. Although addiction was not your best choice, it was the only thing that helped you survive in this world we live in. However, it's now up to you and our therapist to help you figure out what your triggers of addiction are, and how to deal with those triggers in more productive ways that do not involve alcohol consumption. Above all, addiction can be dealt with and relapse is not something that should always be viewed as 'part' of recovery.
At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we also believe there is a difference between being 'clean' and 'being sober'. The former means there is no alcohol in your system, whilst the latter means you have taken a formal commitment to rid alcohol from your life entirely.
Being sober requires an entire lifestyle change. It requires you to stop seeking immediate gratification, it means trying to do the right thing although doing the right thing does not always feel the best, and it means being open and honest and having hope that things can get better. Being sober means having faith in yourself and other people, and also having the courage to stand up for yourself and to stand up for others.
Without self-honesty, hope, faith and courage, you are unlikely to succeed in your recovery. At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we believe these traits and emotions are the foundation of your recovery, and during our residential rehabilitation programme in Banbury, we will assist you in identifying with these traits and emotions so you may finally defeat your addiction once and for all. We also help you figure out where you wish to be in two years from now, and we help you identify how this looks different to where you are currently at in your life.
