You will immediately feel a sense of warmth, of positivity, of hope and a caring family atmosphere when you walk into one of our treatment centres.
Regrettably, getting away from reality and evading the negative emotions and thoughts that are always with them and supported is how most of the people we cooperate with know how to behave, in accordance with their main focus.
Countless people who are battling a drug or alcohol addiction find themselves in a world where standard regulations and societal conventions are not adhered to. In many cases they are very poor with boundaries and can behave immorally and do things they already know are unacceptable or 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 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.
What we are attempting to do at Alcohol Rehab North Yorkshire is to alter all these. 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 North Yorkshire is able to offer a medically assisted withdrawal.
Through our primary, secondary and day-care treatment program, we are able to begin dealing with the mind and life force of addicts after we have cleared them off drugs or alcohol.
We offer a secure and protected atmosphere for individuals to rediscover themselves by assessing their views, feelings, their past and their future plans. We as well endeavour to give an atmosphere where regulations and limits are set in order to establish control and organization. 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 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. The primary thing we make sure is to establish a family-like atmosphere in which clients begin to establish relationship with other individuals who are also seeking treatment, having mutual feeling of being able to fit in, restoring confidence in their respective families by way of consistent interactions with them. The next step involves enabling people to redirect their line of thinking, accommodate their own feelings and eventually change their behaviour. 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 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. Through the programme's strict structure and pseudo residential accommodation, our patients are also empowered to acquire new "learned" habits that are positive by, participating in a community where accommodation is shared while also taking up financial responsibility, going shopping, preparing meals etc. which teaches them how to operate in the world without the needing to take a substance every day.
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.
This is really key as after the treatment has been completed these people will have to stay with our clients, therefore at Alcohol Rehab North Yorkshire, 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.
This lasts for 2 to 24 weeks. Many of our clients come to Alcohol Rehab North Yorkshire with a number of years of active addiction and often many years of distress before that. It actually takes a long time to undo all the issues that come to a person's life while in addiction which means that having more time to adopt to the new lifestyle, the better the results in the long term. Re-housing and relocation via Alcohol Rehab North Yorkshire housing are also offered, if someone needed a truly fresh start to life in a new town, with new people and real opportunity.
Regardless of the time you will be with us, our objective is to empower you so that you have a strong foundation for a fresh start and life in recovery.
