You will instantly experience a feeling of optimism, friendliness and a kind family environment when you enter one of our treatment facilities.
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.
A reality where regular rules and society "laws" are not respected is common for many drug and alcohol addicts. Most of the time, they cross the line of what is considered permissible and can still really engage in activities which they themselves perceive and consider as morally wrong.
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. Our clients also only understand how to behave in dysfunctional relationships; they are out of the ability to truly love and the guilt and shame they experience mean they are unable to find the courage to ask for help or to 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.
Essentially our aim is to change everything by what we try to do at Alcohol Rehab Cambridgeshire. The first step that is needed is to remove the drug and we do this with the help of a detoxification program.
Controlled by a private Doctor and supervised by one of our licensed Nurses, Alcohol Rehab Cambridgeshire is able to offer a medically assisted withdrawal.
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 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. In addition, we make available a space with boundaries and regulations that keeps them under control and offer them a sense of being organized. 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 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.
We start to empower people throughout the treatment process to build positive relationships. 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. We then encourage patients to acknowledge their emotions, modify their thoughts and then modify their actions as well. 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 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. 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 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.
This is definitely vital since these are the very individuals who will spend more time with our clients after their treatment; thus, here at Alcohol Rehab Cambridgeshire, the immediate family are given the chance to interact with those who have experienced the same difficulty so that they gain insight on how to assist their loved one soon after.
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 Alcohol Rehab Cambridgeshire. 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. 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 Cambridgeshire 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.
