How We Work At Leicester Located Drug Rehab Leicester
You will instantly experience a feeling of optimism, friendliness and a kind family environment when you enter one of our treatment facilities.
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. Frequently their boundaries are useless and their behaviour can at times be morally wrong and not align with what they realise to be correct to do.
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. Broken relationships are often the only surrounding in which some of our patients know how to act; the embarrassment and guilt they feel don't allow them to seek help or to apologize and they are not able to experience real love. They are not capable of looking after themselves and because of their selfish and compulsive substance abuse, they do not have the motivation or time to look after others.
Essentially our aim is to change everything by what we try to do at Drug Rehab Leicester. We take you away from the substance with the help of our detox program because it is our priority.
Drug Rehab Leicester offers withdrawal that is medically supervised by a doctor and followed through by one of our certified nurses.
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.
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. The rules and guidelines at our facilities offer a structured and ordered environment. We let our patients know that the world is based on rules that are created to keep them secure and to provide fairness with straightforward rules, like not being late for group sessions. 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.
Even during the treatment procedure, we begin to inspire clients to establish optimistic 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. In order to change the thoughts, accept the feelings and subsequently change the behaviour we go about empowering people. 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 challenge people when they are unable to see what they need to see but we allow them to make mistakes so that they may learn from them. 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 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 Drug Rehab Leicester, 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.
This lasts for 2 to 24 weeks. Many of our clients come to Drug Rehab Leicester with a number of years of active addiction and often many years of distress before that. It actually takes a long time to undo all the issues that come to a person's life while in addiction which means that having more time to adopt to the new lifestyle, the better the results in the long term. We also cater to requests for relocation or transfer through Drug Rehab Leicester Housing so that it's easy for anyone to really start anew in a different place, new neighbourhood and welcome new chances.
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.
