Librium (chlordiazepoxide) rehab
According to a recent 2021 survey published by British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, an estimated 70% of people who use Benzodiazepines (such as Librium) in the UK acquire them without a prescription. This means that a huge percentage of UK users are taking the drug without following professional medical instructions, leaving the door wide open for issues with the drug in the future. If you feel your Librium use is becoming an issue, it may be time for rehab. Banbury Lodge provides a world-class rehab facility centre to get your life back on track and continue forward without the need for Librium.
What is Librium Rehab?
Librium rehab is a type of prescription drug rehab designed to help individuals who struggle with misusing the medication Librium. These benzodiazepine rehab programmes typically provide a structured, supportive environment for individuals to detox from Librium and receive counselling and therapy to address the underlying issues that led to their misuse of the drug. Librium rehab aims to help individuals regain control over their lives, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and prevent future substance misuse.
Which setting is recommended for Librium rehab?
Both outpatient and inpatient rehab programmes are designed to help individuals struggling with Librium addiction and achieve long-term recovery. Outpatient rehab programmes allow individuals to receive treatment while continuing to live at home and attend work or school, while inpatient rehab programmes require individuals to live at the treatment facility for the duration of rehab.
While outpatient rehab can benefit individuals in certain situations, inpatient rehab is often the better option for individuals with more severe problems. In fact, participants in inpatient rehab for drug issues are three times more likely to complete the treatment than compared to outpatient individuals. This is due to a variety of factors, including;
- Twenty-four-hour medical support
- Emotional support
- Structured schedules for therapy and counselling sessions
- No distractions from outside stressors/triggers
- The opportunity to form connections with other people going through similar situations
What can I expect to happen at Librium rehab at Banbury Lodge?
Banbury Lodge understands that embarking on a journey towards recovery can be overwhelming, but our team of experts is here to guide and assist you every step of the way. Our treatment plans use proven, evidence-based therapies for lasting recovery from Librium misuse. Though your treatment plan may vary depending on your specific needs, it typically comprises three key elements:
This involves the removal of drugs from your body. Medical supervision and medication-assisted treatment can help alleviate withdrawal symptoms and cravings during Librium detox.
Due to the complex situations that can arise from misusing Librium, Banbury Lodge incorporates many different forms of therapy into our rehab programme to address the plethora of issues that can occur during the recovery process. Take a look at the therapies we offer below;
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a goal-oriented talk therapy that aims to change negative patterns of thinking and behaviour associated with substance misuse. Therapists help clients identify and modify unrealistic thoughts and beliefs that may contribute to Librium misuse. In fact, A 2020 study found that CBT was beneficial in helping reduce or altogether quit anxiolytics (medications used for dealing with anxiety).
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
DBT is a form of CBT that emphasises mindfulness and emotional regulation to help clients learn coping skills and improve their relationships with others. It is beneficial for individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders. In 2019, a study suggested that the skills learned from undertaking DBT helped individuals to become confident and self-assured during the recovery process.
Family therapy involves the participation of family members in the rehabilitation process. This type of therapy can help identify and address problems in family relationships that may have contributed to Librium misuse.
Group therapy involves individuals with similar substance misuse struggles coming together in a structured environment to share their experiences, feelings and offer mutual support and encouragement.
Individual therapy typically involves one-on-one sessions with a therapist where individuals can explore their thoughts and feelings in a safe, supportive environment.
Holistic therapy aims to support individuals in all areas of their lives, including physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. This type of therapy may include activities such as yoga, meditation and access to gyms to improve overall health and reduce stress.
Aftercare support includes follow-up appointments, ongoing medication management for Librium (if needed), monitoring, lifestyle guidance and counselling services. At Banbury Lodge, we provide support that is tailored to your individual needs.
If I complete Librium rehab, does it mean I’m cured?
Completing Librium rehab is a significant accomplishment but it does not mean a cure for your troubles. After completing rehab, it is essential to continue working on maintaining sobriety through ongoing care, support groups and lifestyle changes.
Remember that treatment for Librium misuse is not a one-size-fits-all approach; different people may require different levels and types of support. Therefore, working closely with the aftercare team at Banbury Lodge can help you develop a treatment plan that addresses your needs and goals.
Try to practise the coping techniques and methods you learned in rehab and apply them in real-world situations. This will help in the overall recovery process and help you to steer clear of triggers that may make you relapse.
If I relapse after Librium rehab, does it mean I’ve failed?
Firstly, it’s essential to remember that relapsing doesn’t indicate failure; instead, it can be viewed as a learning opportunity. It can help you identify triggers and high-risk situations that may lead to substance abuse. Learning from past mistakes can help you develop a better understanding of your issues and develop effective strategies to prevent future relapses.
Relapse doesn’t negate the progress made during rehab and even a brief period of sobriety can positively impact your physical and mental health.
What can I do to maintain sobriety and avoid relapse?
Maintaining sobriety after Librium rehab can be challenging, but it is more than achievable with the right strategies and support. Remember that recovery is a journey with challenges along the way. It’s essential to stay committed to sobriety and seek help when you need it. Here are some steps you could consider taking to maintain your sobriety:
- Attend support groups: Joining a support group such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can provide you with a supportive and understanding community. Attending regular meetings with people who are going through similar Librium issues can make the world of difference in your recovery
- Create a support system: Surround yourself with friends and family who support your sobriety. Let them know what you’re going through and how they can help. Avoid spending time with people who you may have taken Librium with in the past.
- Practice self-care: Take care of yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically. This could include eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, practising relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga, getting enough sleep and spending time doing things you enjoy.
- Identify and avoid triggers: Identify people, places, and situations that may trigger your cravings and avoid them as much as possible. Rehab at Banbury Lodge will teach you all about your own personal triggers, but as you progress in your journey to recovery, you may encounter new situations that could be classed as a gateway to Librium relapse. It’s important to stay vigilant and practise the coping methods that rehab taught you.
