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.
Unfortunately, a large number of the people we work with only know how to act in a way that looks after their main focus; to avoid the negative feelings and thoughts and escape the reality they are constantly experiencing and re-enforcing.
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.
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. 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 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.
Modifying all these things is what Drug Rehab Suffolk is dedicated to do. With our detox therapy, we accomplish the first step on the list, which is getting rid of drugs or alcohol.
Drug Rehab Suffolk 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.
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.
Our facilities are a safe and discrete environment where the individual can examine themselves by looking into their emotions and thoughts, what they are looking to become and who they truly are. We also offer an atmosphere with rules and limits which offer the containment and structure. 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.
At every step of the process of treatment, individuals are empowered to develop positive relations. 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. Then we equip people to alter their thoughts, learn to live with their feelings and consequently adapt their conduct. 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 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. 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.
Every single day spent in treatment is an essential step towards success in the long run.
We also work to offer support to our client's loved ones.
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 Drug Rehab Suffolk, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
This all takes place over the course of 2 to 24 weeks. Most people come to Drug Rehab Suffolk with a long history of active addiction and a past filled with miserable years behind them. 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. We also cater to requests for relocation or transfer through Drug Rehab Suffolk Housing so that it's easy for anyone to really start anew in a different place, new neighbourhood and welcome new chances.
Regardless of the time you will be with us, our objective is to empower you so that you have a strong foundation for a fresh start and life in recovery.
