Do Not Waste Your Time and Funds on The Wrong Rehab

Group therapy with our counsellor and program manager Henk Nagel.

by Hope Rehab Team

After having visited various clinics in the Netherlands and abroad, I came to the conclusion that I really needed something else. A clinic where I was seen as a person and not as a prisoner. The holistic program that the experiential experts at Hope have put together has been the reason for me to travel to Thailand.

Choosing The Wrong Rehab Can Mean More Than a Loss of Time and Money

Reaching a point where you are ready to change provides a precious opportunity. It may have taken you years to get here. There is no guarantee that this motivation will last forever, and this is why it is absolutely crucial that you make the most of it.

Choosing the wrong rehab can not only mean a loss of time or money, but it can also mean the loss of an opportunity. This is the saddest part. When we take major steps to change our life that don’t work out, it tends to weaken our motivation. We may even give up on the idea of a new life completely – at least temporarily.

If we fail to make the most of an opportunity to change, it could be years before the conditions are right to try again. During this time, more damage will occur to our relationships, our reputation, and our physical and mental health.

You Are More Than a Set of Problems

We humans are highly complex. We are all unique. This complexity and uniqueness needs to be taken into account when it comes to treating problems like addiction issues. Any approach that treats us like a set of problems that just need fixing is likely to fail. Humans are not the same as car engines.

After 12 years wanting/trying to get clean and 6 previous attempts at treatment and one detox, I’m so grateful to have found Hope when I did. I was made to feel more like a well cared for client than a customer than anywhere I’d been previously, felt my well-being was a priority and my counseling and treatment could be tailored to fit me and my needs, so the sessions, tools and exercises I was given were the things most relevant and helpful to me, where I was at, in order to stay clean

What Do We Mean by The Wrong Rehab

When we talk about the ‘wrong rehab’, what we really mean is the wrong rehab for you. This is a discussion we have had with thousands of clients over the years, and the most common criticisms of other rehabs we’ve heard include:

  • Rehabs that use the ‘one-size fits all’ approach. In other words, the client is expected to fit in with whatever treatment is offered rather than providing treatment on the basis of what the client needs.

  • Understaffed rehabs where clients struggle to get sufficient time with a therapist/counsellor.

  • Overcrowded and under-resourced facilities which feel more like prisons than treatment centers.

  • Rehabs where too much emphasis is put on one approach.

  • Rehabs that only seem to care about making money.

  • Facilities where there is an overreliance on using drugs to treat addiction problems. This can mean that clients end up with more addiction problem than when they went in!

  • Rehabs that are so strict about things like using the internet that they put clients in a position where they are forced to leave. Getting a break from the outside world can be helpful, but it is important to approach this issue with balance (e.g. some people have work or family commitments that mean they need to go online occasionally).

  • Failure to provide adequate aftercare.

Having been in and out of treatment in the UK (5 treatment centers!) for the past two years I really was at the point of giving up. Hopes focus on mind, body and soul is a true holistic approach which for me has made the difference that I needed

Impact of Covid 19 on Mental Health and Addiction Problems

It has been a tough couple of years. The covid 19 epidemic has impacted our world in ways that many of us just were not prepared for; increased alcohol and drug use, high levels of anxiety, increased stress, and PTSD due to medical interventions are just some of the ways it has impacted our mental health.

Never Mind the Bollocks – Here is Hope Rehab

Those of us who have battled with an addiction will have plenty of experience with bollocks. The whole thing becomes a never-ending festival of bollocks - a shitshow of epic proportions. We lose things, we do stuff we later regret, and we hurt ourselves as well as those we care about.

Where Are You Going to Be On New Year’s Day 2022?

What is it that most people want at the start of a new year? Isn't it usually the hope to do better or be better? Deep down we know that we are capable of so much more. We suspect that the life we are living is somehow less satisfying than the life we could be living. The New Year approaches like a line in the sand with the opportunity of a brand new chapter.
