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.
Unluckily most of the people we see have a tendency to only respond in a manner that caters to their main focus which is to run away from reality and evade the experiences of thinking and feeling negatively.
Several individuals who are dependent to drugs and alcohol exist in a community where standard regulation and social policies are not being adhered to. Often they have ineffective limits and their behaviours can sometimes be immoral and go against what they recognize is the right thing to do.
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. Our patients are also only capable of operating in relationships that are dysfunctional; they are not capable of loving truly and the guilt as well as shame they feel does not allow them to find the strength to ask for help or say sorry. They can no longer look after themselves and their uncontrollable inconsiderate search for drugs doesn't allow them the time or motivation to look after other people.
Modifying all these things is what Alcohol Rehab Bedfordshire is dedicated to do. With our detox therapy, we accomplish the first step on the list, which is getting rid of drugs or alcohol.
Controlled by a private Doctor and supervised by one of our licensed Nurses, Alcohol Rehab Bedfordshire 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 make available a secure, private environment where people can take stock of themselves (their feelings and thoughts), who they truly are and who they wish to become. We also offer an atmosphere with rules and limits which offer the containment and structure. The simplest rules such as timely attendance of group sessions demonstrate to the patients that following norms brings about fairness and helps with safe guarding everyone. We also offer hope - when you discover that the counsellor working with you had been an addict and has managed to stay sober and clean for 13 years, you get the belief and inspiration that it is possible.
Even during the treatment procedure, we begin to inspire clients to establish optimistic relations. 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. The next step involves enabling people to redirect their line of thinking, accommodate their own feelings and eventually change their behaviour. We offer the 12 step program which is an uncomplicated and useful set of resources that has helped people achieve sobriety and quit substance abuse for almost a century.
We permit people to make errors and take something from their errors, but we do confront people if they are unable to see what they should be seeing. 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.
Each day spent in treatment is another step towards succeeding in the long run.
We also focus on supporting the family members and close friends of our clients.
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 Bedfordshire 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.
This lasts for 2 to 24 weeks. Several clients who consult us for the first time in Alcohol Rehab Bedfordshire have experienced several years of dependency and even years of suffering prior to that. Basically it can require a lot of time to untwist the disorder of the person's life caused by addiction, therefore if people have more time to embrace their brand new way of living, their results in the long run will be more positive. If anyone wants a completely new beginning in a new place, with new people and a real chance, we can also provide, thanks to our Alcohol Rehab Bedfordshire Housing, moving and re-housing.
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.
