Rehab Misconceptions:

Apr 8, 2013 By Paul Spanjar 0 comments

So much is written about rehab in celebrity magazines, daily newspapers and online but there is still such a lack of understanding about the process of rehab and recovery. Rehab does not equal recovery. Alcohol rehabilitation and drug rehabilitation take many forms and can range from 1 week to 1 year in length. There are different models of treatment, different philosophies and even different goals. However all rehabs are just the beginning of the recovery process. Addiction cannot be cured in a short term programme. A short term treatment programme enables the individual to break the cycle of their addiction, gain insight into their problem, address the underlying issues, and put a clear relapse prevention plan in place.

Most research suggests that the optimum length of a treatment episode is 12 weeks. This enables the individual to make sufficient changes as well as allowing the brain time to recover from the alcohol or drug abuse. Shorter programmes are available and obviously cost and time is a factor but for most addicts or alcoholics, getting the right rehab programme is critical.

Recovery for most addicts or alcoholics is a lifestyle; a life long journey.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
