Our Work And How We At Drug Rehab Berkshire In Berkshire Do It
When you get to any of our facilities you immediately experience excellent hospitality with a loving family environment where hope, positivity and warmth thrive.
Sadly, most of the patients who consult our services are only after their main aim which is to evade harsh realities and to do away with whatever off-putting ideas and emotions they are often subject to and going through.
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. 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 can no longer look after themselves and their uncontrollable inconsiderate search for drugs doesn't allow them the time or motivation to look after other people.
Basically at Drug Rehab Berkshire, what we endeavour to do is change. With our detox therapy, we accomplish the first step on the list, which is getting rid of drugs or alcohol.
Drug Rehab Berkshire is able to deliver clinically-monitored withdrawal which is also supervised by expert physicians and looked after by our efficient medical staff.
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 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 give our clients optimism - we show them that they too can get better when they see that our Counsellor used to be addicted, but is now 13 years sober and free.
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 offer the 12 step program which is an uncomplicated and useful set of resources that has helped people achieve sobriety and quit substance abuse for almost a century.
We let our patients make mistakes so they can learn from them, but we also encourage them to see what they should see when they are not able. 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 in treatment is another step towards succeeding in the long run.
We also focus on supporting the family members and close friends of our clients.
It is very important because these people are the ones who will have to live with the clients once they are done with treatment which means Drug Rehab Berkshire gives loved ones an opportunity to interact with other people who have faced similar issues and learn how they can best offer support to the client post treatment.
We accomplish these throughout the next 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 Drug Rehab Berkshire. 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 Berkshire Housing, moving 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.
