You will instantly experience a feeling of optimism, friendliness and a kind family environment when you enter one of our treatment facilities.
Sadly, most of the patients who consult our services are only after their main aim which is to evade harsh realities and to do away with whatever off-putting ideas and emotions they are often subject to and going through.
Many people addicted to drugs and alcohol live in a world that doesn't follow the normal rules and societal 'standards'. Most of the time, they cross the line of what is considered permissible and can still really engage in activities which they themselves perceive and consider as morally wrong.
Regrettably, these actions become "adopted" as they deal with life problems; for instance, you might know someone that is sure that he or she is telling the truth even though they are in fact lying on a regular basis. Our clients also only understand how to behave in dysfunctional relationships; they are out of the ability to truly love and the guilt and shame they experience mean they are unable to find the courage to ask for help or to 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.
What we are attempting to do at Alcohol Rehab London is to alter all these. The first step in the process is quitting the substance which is achieved through the detox programs.
Alcohol Rehab London offers withdrawal that is medically supervised by a doctor and followed through by one of our certified nurses.
As soon as the individual's body is free from the drug we can begin to focus on the spirit and mind by employing our day-care, primary and secondary rehabilitation programmes.
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. The rules and guidelines at our facilities offer a structured and ordered environment. We let our patients know that the world is based on rules that are created to keep them secure and to provide fairness with straightforward rules, like not being late for group sessions. 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.
During the whole treatment process we begin to equip people to foster good relationships. First we achieve this by reproducing a setting that is similar to a family which allows clients to develop connections with others in treatment, they begin to experience a shared sense of belonging and start to repair trust in their own families by frequent contact with their loved ones. Then we equip people to alter their thoughts, learn to live with their feelings and consequently adapt their conduct. 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. Through the programme's comprehensive and quasi-residential living environment, we encourage our clients to acquire fresh set of optimistic absorbed behaviour; by being immersed in the society and staying in shared lodgings, being given the task to handle a budget, doing weekly groceries, prepare food for themselves and reside in a society, these clients are gaining insights each day on how it is to exist in an actual community without ever using drugs to survive.
Every day in the treatment works as a building block for long term success.
It is also our goal to support our clients' loved ones.
This is really key as after the treatment has been completed these people will have to stay with our clients, therefore at Alcohol Rehab London, members of the family get a chance to interact with other people who've faced identical experiences and familiarise themselves with how to provide support to the client after the treatment has ended.
We accomplish these throughout the next 2 to 24 weeks. A lot of our clients have been addicts for too long and have been feeling miserable for many years before they decided to come to Alcohol Rehab London. 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. 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 London Housing, moving and re-housing.
However long someone is with us, our purpose is to provide them with a solid foundation for a life in recovery, a new start.
