You will instantly experience a feeling of optimism, friendliness and a kind family environment when you enter one of our treatment facilities.
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.
A reality where regular rules and society "laws" are not respected is common for many drug and alcohol addicts. Often they have ineffective limits and their behaviours can sometimes be immoral and go against what they recognize is the right thing to do.
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 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 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.
Essentially our aim is to change everything by what we try to do at Alcohol Rehab Essex. The primary thing which needs to be done is to get the patient away from the substance which can be fulfilled only through a comprehensive detox procedure.
Alcohol Rehab Essex provides you a medically assisted withdrawal that is overseen by a private Doctor and monitored by one of our registered Nurses.
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 make available a secure, private environment where people can take stock of themselves (their feelings and thoughts), who they truly are and who they wish to become. In addition, we make available a space with boundaries and regulations that keeps them under control and offer them a sense of being organized. Simple rules such as being in the group on time, show our clients that the world is a place with standards which are there for fairness and to keep people secure. You are motivated by knowing that your counsellor was also an addict and is now 13 years sober and clean, proves to someone that it's not impossible.
At every step of the process of treatment, individuals are empowered to develop positive relations. We achieve this by beginning with the creation of a family like environment where patients begin bonding with others who are in treatment with a sense of collective belonging while also rebuilding the faith and trust of their loved ones through consistent contact with friends and family. We also carry out encouraging individuals to alter their views, acknowledge their emotions and consequently modify how they conduct themselves. We also familiarise our clients with the 12-step program (really basic and practical tools that have been assisting people to get sober for almost a century).
We permit people to make errors and take something from their errors, but we do confront people if they are unable to see what they should be seeing. 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.
Long term results are acquired by gradually creating a new life in rehab.
We also focus on supporting the family members and close friends of our clients.
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 Essex, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
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 Essex. 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. Re-housing and relocation via Alcohol Rehab Essex housing are also offered, if someone needed a truly fresh start to life in a new town, with new people and real opportunity.
Our goal is always to offer our patients, regardless of how long they are in rehab, a strong foundation for a fresh start and life in recovery.
