Our Approach In Herefordshire At Drug Rehab Herefordshire
You will instantly experience a feeling of optimism, friendliness and a kind family environment when you enter one of our treatment facilities.
Sadly most people who we work with are only familiar with behaving in such a manner that attends to their main focus - to get away from reality and to dodge negative emotions and thoughts that they're re-enforcing and experiencing all the time.
Several individuals who are dependent to drugs and alcohol exist in a community where standard regulation and social policies are not being adhered to. 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.
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. In addition our clients are only familiar with how to act in troubled relationships, they can no longer love truly and the embarrassment and self-reproach they suffer mean that they can't find the pluck to apologise or to request some assistance. They have allowed themselves to be immersed in the obsessive and self-centred tendencies caused by the drugs they are taking that they no longer look after themselves nor think about the needs of others.
What we are attempting to do at Drug Rehab Herefordshire is to alter all these. The primary thing which needs to be done is to get the patient away from the substance which can be fulfilled only through a comprehensive detox procedure.
Drug Rehab Herefordshire offers withdrawal that is medically supervised by a doctor and followed through by one of our certified nurses.
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. In addition, we make available a space with boundaries and regulations that keeps them under control and offer them a sense of being organized. 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 endeavour to inspire optimism by way of example; for instance the knowledge that one of our specialists also went through drug dependency and has remained sober for over a decade now shows clients that this is possible.
We are able to encourage patients to work on positive relationships using the rehab process. We achieve this by beginning with the creation of a family like environment where patients begin bonding with others who are in treatment with a sense of collective belonging while also rebuilding the faith and trust of their loved ones through consistent contact with friends and family. We then encourage patients to acknowledge their emotions, modify their thoughts and then modify their actions as well. We share to these individuals the concept of the 12 step programme which is really straightforward and useful and has assisted several individuals to be cleansed and sober for almost a century.
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. Our patients are getting a grasp of living in the real world without requiring any substance to help them do it by using a fierce structure of our rehab and the atmosphere of a real residential situation; that way, we encourage them to equip themselves with fresh, positive behaviours and to achieve this by becoming a part of the society and living together with others, by cooking for themselves, by learning how to manage their cash and to be responsible, do shopping for a week and live in a community.
Each day spent for treatment serves as a stepping stone towards long lasting achievement.
We try to support the loved ones of our patients as well.
This is very important since they are the people that will be living with your patients after rehab, so family and friends have a chance to get to know others who dealt with same situations, here at Drug Rehab Herefordshire, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
We accomplish these throughout the next 2 to 24 weeks. Most people come to Drug Rehab Herefordshire 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. 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 Drug Rehab Herefordshire 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.
