A kind family atmosphere and a feeling of understanding, of optimism, of faith, are always present in every one of our rehab facilities that you choose to visit.
Unfortunately, a large number of the people we work with only know how to act in a way that looks after their main focus; to avoid the negative feelings and thoughts and escape the reality they are constantly experiencing and re-enforcing.
Many people addicted to drugs and alcohol live in a world that doesn't follow the normal rules and societal 'standards'. Their actions can in certain situations be unethical and not in accordance with their own set of values, but they also commonly have inefficient limitations.
Sadly as they lead their lives this behaviour becomes 'learned', e.g. you might have encountered someone who lies so regularly that he/she in fact persuades himself/herself that he/she is actually speaking the truth. Broken relationships are often the only surrounding in which some of our patients know how to act; the embarrassment and guilt they feel don't allow them to seek help or to apologize and they are not able to experience real love. They are not capable of looking after themselves and because of their selfish and compulsive substance abuse, they do not have the motivation or time to look after others.
Basically at Alcohol Rehab Warwickshire, what we endeavour to do is change. The first step in the process is quitting the substance which is achieved through the detox programs.
Controlled by a private Doctor and supervised by one of our licensed Nurses, Alcohol Rehab Warwickshire is able to offer a medically assisted withdrawal.
When we have an individual whose body is free from the substance we take help from our primary, secondary and day-care rehab program so that we may start to work on their mind and spirit.
We offer a secure and protected atmosphere for individuals to rediscover themselves by assessing their views, feelings, their past and their future plans. In addition, we make available a space with boundaries and regulations that keeps them under control and offer them a sense of being organized. Simple rules such as being in the group on time, show our clients that the world is a place with standards which are there for fairness and to keep people secure. We offer optimism, because by observing that your counsellor also battled an addiction and is now enjoying sobriety for 13 years, you realise that it can be achieved.
We are able to encourage patients to work on positive relationships using the rehab process. Firstly we recreate an atmosphere to do this which is like a family; clients get the chance to form bonds with other people in treatment and a collective sense of belonging, as well as re-establishing trust within their own families through regular contact with loved ones. In order to change the thoughts, accept the feelings and subsequently change the behaviour we go about empowering people. A very straightforward and pragmatic set of tools, a 12-step program, is taught and it has so far helped, for almost a century, addicts to become free and sober.
We challenge people when they are unable to see what they need to see but we allow them to make mistakes so that they may learn from them. By employing the powerful system of the quasi-residential living model and the programme, we in addition equip our clients to get a brand new assortment of positive 'learned' behaviours; by residing in shared housing and forming part of the community, by having some onus to look after money, complete weekly shopping, prepare food for themselves and reside in the community, our clients are being taught each day how to 'live' in the outside world without requiring a drug to assist them.
Long term results are acquired by gradually creating a new life in rehab.
We try to support the loved ones of our patients as well.
It is very important because these people are the ones who will have to live with the clients once they are done with treatment which means Alcohol Rehab Warwickshire gives loved ones an opportunity to interact with other people who have faced similar issues and learn how they can best offer support to the client post treatment.
We get through all of this in a duration that can last between two and twenty four weeks. Most people come to Alcohol Rehab Warwickshire with a long history of active addiction and a past filled with miserable years behind them. The more time people can have adopting this new lifestyle, the better the long-term outcome because it can take a long time to 'un-weave' the chaos of someone's life in addiction. We also cater to requests for relocation or transfer through Alcohol Rehab Warwickshire Housing so that it's easy for anyone to really start anew in a different place, new neighbourhood and welcome new chances.
Our goal is always to offer our patients, regardless of how long they are in rehab, a strong foundation for a fresh start and life in recovery.
