When you drop by into any of our rehab facilities, what you will notice right away is the warm atmosphere filled with so much optimism, faith and compassion.
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.
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. 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 they adopt these behaviours strongly with an example being an individual who is so immersed in lying that they begin to believe their lies as being what is true. 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. 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 Drug Rehab Hull 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.
Drug Rehab Hull is able to deliver clinically-monitored withdrawal which is also supervised by expert physicians and looked after by our efficient medical staff.
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 provide a confidential and safe space for people to discover themselves - their emotions and thoughts - who they exactly are and what they want to be. The rules and guidelines at our facilities offer a structured and ordered environment. We let our patients know that the world is based on rules that are created to keep them secure and to provide fairness with straightforward rules, like not being late for group sessions. 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.
During the whole treatment process we begin to equip people to foster good relationships. First we achieve this by reproducing a setting that is similar to a family which allows clients to develop connections with others in treatment, they begin to experience a shared sense of belonging and start to repair trust in their own families by frequent contact with their loved ones. We also carry out encouraging individuals to alter their views, acknowledge their emotions and consequently modify how they conduct themselves. 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 individuals when they are unable to acknowledge what they need to although we also let them commit blunders and gain some insights from these. 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 also focus on supporting the family members and close friends of our clients.
This is really key as after the treatment has been completed these people will have to stay with our clients, therefore at Drug Rehab Hull, 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.
We accomplish these throughout the next 2 to 24 weeks. Several clients who consult us for the first time in Drug Rehab Hull have experienced several years of dependency and even years of suffering prior to 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. If a person wishes for a really new beginning in a brand new place with brand new neighbours and true possibilities, our Drug Rehab Hull Housing can also provide relocation and re-housing.
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.
