Imagine Valium as a thick fog, enveloping your life, making it difficult to find your bearings and see the path forward. This impenetrable fog can be incredibly disorienting and leave you feeling totally lost and alone. Fortunately, Recovery Lighthouse’s Valium rehab programme is like a beacon of light, cutting through the fog and guiding you to a brighter sober future. Our comprehensive and compassionate Valium treatment can help you navigate the journey to a healthier, happier life, free from the clutches of Valium.
What is Valium rehab?
Valium rehab is a proven treatment programme that addresses Valium abuse and dependency. It is an incredibly important process because chronic and compulsive Valium use can have severe physical, emotional and social consequences. The goals of Valium rehab include:
- Breaking the cycle of Valium reliance and abuse
- Improving overall health and well-being
- Equipping you with the tools needed for long-term recovery
The other benefits of Valium rehab are far-reaching and can positively impact your relationships, work and overall life satisfaction.
What Valium rehab options are available?
There are two primary types of Valium rehab: outpatient and inpatient.
Here’s a quick comparison to help you understand the key differences between the two:
Outpatient Valium rehab…
- Attend treatment sessions while living at home
- Continue working or attending school
- Less intensive therapy and support
- Usually lower in cost
Inpatient Valium rehab…
- Live at a treatment facility like Recovery Lighthouse
- 24/7 support and care from professionals
- Structured, intensive therapy sessions
- Higher success rates due to an immersive environment
- More comprehensive treatment plans
While outpatient rehab may seem the more convenient option, Valium rehab is generally considered the most effective. That is why Recovery Lighthouse offers all our clients inpatient treatment at our state-of-the-art residential clinic. When you undergo Valium rehab at Recovery Lighthouse, you will be shielded from your normal stresses and triggers, will have no access to Valium and will be able to give 100% of your focus and energy to healing.
Do I need Valium rehab?
Acknowledging the need for help is a crucial first step on the road to recovery. However, it’s not always easy to see through the fog of Valium addiction and recognise when you need Valium rehab. Here are some signs that it’s time to seek help:
- Taking more Valium than prescribed or using it without a prescription
- Using Valium to cope with stress, anxiety or emotions
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not taking Valium
- Increasingly isolating yourself from friends and family
- Neglecting responsibilities at work or home
- Failed attempts to cut down or quit Valium
- Experiencing legal or financial troubles related to Valium use
If you recognise any of these signs in yourself or a loved one, it may be time to consider Valium rehab.
What does Valium rehab at Recovery Lighthouse involve?
At Recovery Lighthouse, the Valium rehab process begins with a medically supervised Valium detox to help manage withdrawal symptoms and ensure your safety and comfort during the process. Following this, our comprehensive Valium treatment programmes offer a range of evidence-based therapies to support your recovery journey.
Therapies offered during Recovery Lighthouse Valium rehab programmes include:
- 12-step: A step-by-step approach that focuses on personal growth, taking responsibility and getting support from others who have faced similar problems. 12-step can help you address the reasons behind your Valium use and feel a sense of belonging within a supportive group.
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT): CBT helps you spot and change negative thoughts and actions related to your Valium use and dependence. By recognising these unhealthy thoughts and replacing them with better options, you can gain control over your cravings and lower the chances of going back to using.
- Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT): DBT teaches skills like being mindful, handling emotions and getting along with others to manage cravings and improve overall well-being. This can help you better deal with stress and anxiety without using Valium.
- Group therapy: In a supportive group setting, you can share your experiences and make connections with other people in recovery. Group therapy also offers a unique opportunity for you to gain encouragement and practical advice from those who have faced similar challenges.
- Mindfulness: Techniques like meditation and deep breathing can help you become more aware, accepting and focused on the present moment which can help you manage anxiety and stress without needing medication.
- Holistic therapies: Treatments such as yoga and art therapy focus on the whole person—mind, body and spirit—promoting overall health and balance during the recovery process. These therapies can enhance your Valium recovery by providing alternative ways to handle stress, express emotions and connect with yourself on a deeper level. They also support the development of a healthy lifestyle that promotes long-term recovery and personal growth.
Challenges you will face during Valium rehab
Embarking on the journey to recovery is a brave and commendable decision but it is crucial to be aware of the challenges that may arise during Valium rehab. By understanding these challenges, you will be better prepared to face them head-on and overcome obstacles in your recovery journey.
Some of these challenges include:
Addressing the root causes of your condition may unearth a rollercoaster of emotions, from guilt and shame to anger and sadness. However, your professional counsellors and therapists will guide you through these emotional ups and downs, providing a safe space for you to process your feelings and develop healthier emotional responses.
Learning new coping skills…
As you work towards recovery, discovering healthier ways to cope with stress, anxiety and other triggers for Valium use can be challenging but essential. Our skilled therapists will introduce various coping strategies and techniques that you can implement in your daily life, empowering you to face challenges without resorting to Valium.
Building new routines and habits…
Replacing old patterns and habits with new, healthier ones requires time, effort and perseverance. Our Valium rehab programme will provide you with a structured environment and support network to help you develop more positive routines and habits that contribute to lasting recovery.
Substance use often strains relationships with friends and family members. Rebuilding trust and re-establishing open communication may take patience and commitment from everyone involved. Family therapy and support can play a crucial role in mending relationships and fostering a supportive environment for your recovery journey.
Recovery is a lifelong process and maintaining motivation can be difficult, especially during challenging times. Our team at Recovery Lighthouse will help you stay focused on your goals and remind you of the reasons why you chose to seek help. By celebrating your progress, learning from setbacks and surrounding yourself with a supportive community, you can maintain your motivation and continue on the right path.
Valium relapse prevention tips
It’s important to remember that relapse is not the end of the world. In fact, 40-60% of people in recovery experience at least one relapse. If you do slip up, use the experience as a lesson, allowing it to strengthen your resolve and provide extra motivation on your recovery journey.
If you can avoid relapse altogether, however, even better! Here are six tips for preventing relapse after you leave Valium rehab:
1. Develop a strong support network…
Surround yourself with understanding friends, family and recovery peers who can provide encouragement and guidance when needed.
2. Engage in aftercare…
Recovery Lighthouse offers one year’s free weekly group therapy sessions for everyone who undergoes Valium rehab at our centre, ensuring ongoing support as you transition back into daily life.
3. Stay active in recovery…
Attend support group meetings, maintain connections with your treatment team and stay committed to your personal recovery plan.
4. Identify and manage triggers…
Recognise situations, emotions or people that may tempt you to use Valium again and develop healthy coping strategies to manage these triggers.
5. Prioritise self-care…
Make time for exercise, healthy eating and adequate sleep as well as activities that bring you happiness and help you relax.
6. Seek professional help when needed…
If you are struggling with your recovery or experiencing overwhelming emotions, don’t hesitate to reach out to a therapist or counsellor for guidance.
