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. Often they have ineffective limits and their behaviours can sometimes be immoral and go against what they recognize is the right thing 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. 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 primarily attempt to achieve at Alcohol Rehab Swansea is to change all of this. We take you away from the substance with the help of our detox program because it is our priority.
Alcohol Rehab Swansea offers withdrawal that is medically supervised by a doctor and followed through by one of our certified nurses.
Once we are done ridding the individual's body from any residue of the drug, we then proceed with cleansing the spirit and mind through our basic and supplementary day rehab programmes.
We offer a quiet and private space in which people can think about their life, feelings, what they have become and what they wish to be in the future. 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 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. The first thing we do is create surroundings to reflect belonging to a family; patients develop a sense of fellowship and they begin creating relationships with each other, as well as recreating trust in their real family relations through constant communication with their loved ones. The next step involves enabling people to redirect their line of thinking, accommodate their own feelings and eventually change their behaviour. 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 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.
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 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 Alcohol Rehab Swansea, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
This all takes place over the course of 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 Swansea. 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. Re-housing and relocation via Alcohol Rehab Swansea housing are also offered, if someone needed a truly fresh start to life in a new town, with new people and real opportunity.
However long someone is with us, our purpose is to provide them with a solid foundation for a life in recovery, a new start.
