When you get to any of our facilities you immediately experience excellent hospitality with a loving family environment where hope, positivity and warmth thrive.
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.
Many people addicted to drugs and alcohol live in a world that doesn't follow the normal rules and societal 'standards'. Their actions can in certain situations be unethical and not in accordance with their own set of values, but they also commonly have inefficient limitations.
Unfortunately these behaviours become 'learned' as they go through life; for instance, you may have experienced someone lying so often that they actually satisfy themselves that what they are saying is true. 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. 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 Alcohol Rehab Southampton. With our detox therapy, we accomplish the first step on the list, which is getting rid of drugs or alcohol.
Alcohol Rehab Southampton 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.
When a person's body is finally free of the substance they have been abusing, we can then begin to focus on helping the spirit and mind through the primary, secondary and day-care rehabilitation treatments we offer.
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. Basic rules like not showing up at group late, demonstrate to our clients that the outside world has conventions that exist to keep people secure and ensure just treatment. 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.
Even during the treatment procedure, we begin to inspire clients to establish optimistic relations. 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. 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 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.
Each day spent for treatment serves as a stepping stone towards long lasting achievement.
We as well endeavour to assist the client's immediate family and intimate colleagues.
This is absolutely critical so at Alcohol Rehab Southampton, family members have an opportunity to meet others who have been through the same experience and learn how to support the client after treatment because it is people that will have to live with our clients after treatment.
We accomplish these throughout the next 2 to 24 weeks. Several clients who consult us for the first time in Alcohol Rehab Southampton have experienced several years of dependency and even years of suffering prior to that. 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 Southampton 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.
