When you get to any of our facilities you immediately experience excellent hospitality with a loving family environment where hope, positivity and warmth thrive.
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.
Most drug and alcohol addicts do not conform to the rules and norms that are followed by others. Frequently their boundaries are useless and their behaviour can at times be morally wrong and not align with what they realise to be correct to do.
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 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. Their uncontrollable, egoistic chase for substances leaves them without time or desire to worry about others since they are also not able to worry about themselves.
Essentially our aim is to change everything by what we try to do at Drug Rehab London. With our detox therapy, we accomplish the first step on the list, which is getting rid of drugs or alcohol.
Drug Rehab London can offer a medically assisted withdrawal that is supervised by a private medical practitioner and observed by a registered nurse who forms part of our team.
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 offer a secure and protected atmosphere for individuals to rediscover themselves by assessing their views, feelings, their past and their future plans. 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 give our clients optimism - we show them that they too can get better when they see that our Counsellor used to be addicted, but is now 13 years sober and free.
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. We then encourage patients to acknowledge their emotions, modify their thoughts and then modify their actions as well. We teach the 12 step program to our clients - a very simple and practical set of tools which is effective in helping the people get sober and clean for nearly 100 years.
We motivate individuals when they need to be seeing something but aren't while giving them room to make mistakes that they learn from. 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.
Every single day spent in treatment is an essential step towards success in the long run.
We as well endeavour to assist the client's immediate family and intimate colleagues.
This is really key as after the treatment has been completed these people will have to stay with our clients, therefore at Drug 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.
All of this is completed between 2 to 24 weeks. Most people come to Drug Rehab London with a long history of active addiction and a past filled with miserable years behind them. 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. We also provide relocation and rehousing services through Drug Rehab London Housing for those looking to get a completely fresh beginning in a new place with new communities and a real chance.
Regardless of how long the person has used our services, we always try to give them firm support for a new life towards complete recovery and fresh start.
