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.
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.
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. Their actions can in certain situations be unethical and not in accordance with their own set of values, but they also commonly have inefficient limitations.
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. In addition our clients are only familiar with how to act in troubled relationships, they can no longer love truly and the embarrassment and self-reproach they suffer mean that they can't find the pluck to apologise or to request some assistance. Selfish pursuit of substance does not give them the time nor purpose to care for others because they have lost the ability to care for themselves and their compulsive.
Basically at Drug Rehab Durham, 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 Durham is able to deliver clinically-monitored withdrawal which is also supervised by expert physicians and looked after by our efficient medical staff.
Once we are done ridding the individual's body from any residue of the drug, we then proceed with cleansing the spirit and mind through our basic and supplementary day rehab programmes.
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 policies are set such as being punctual for sessions and this alone gives our clients an idea that each community has certain rules in place in order to maintain equality and safety. We also offer hope - when you discover that the counsellor working with you had been an addict and has managed to stay sober and clean for 13 years, you get the belief and inspiration that it is possible.
We are able to encourage patients to work on positive relationships using the rehab process. 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. The next step involves enabling people to redirect their line of thinking, accommodate their own feelings and eventually change their behaviour. 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 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 comprehensive and quasi-residential living environment, we encourage our clients to acquire fresh set of optimistic absorbed behaviour; by being immersed in the society and staying in shared lodgings, being given the task to handle a budget, doing weekly groceries, prepare food for themselves and reside in a society, these clients are gaining insights each day on how it is to exist in an actual community without ever using drugs to survive.
Long term results are acquired by gradually creating a new life in rehab.
We try to support the loved ones of our patients as well.
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 Durham, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
We get through all of this in a duration that can last between two and twenty four weeks. Many of our clients come to Drug Rehab Durham with a number of years of active addiction and often many years of distress before that. Actually, it can really take long to undo the disorder in one's life caused by drug dependency; thus, the earlier these individuals embrace a cleansed life, the earlier as well they get to have normal lives. We also provide relocation and rehousing services through Drug Rehab Durham Housing for those looking to get a completely fresh beginning in a new place with new communities and a real chance.
However long someone is with us, our purpose is to provide them with a solid foundation for a life in recovery, a new start.
