A kind family atmosphere and a feeling of understanding, of optimism, of faith, are always present in every one of our rehab facilities that you choose to visit.
Sadly, most of the patients who consult our services are only after their main aim which is to evade harsh realities and to do away with whatever off-putting ideas and emotions they are often subject to and going through.
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, as they go along their every day lives, they develop inappropriate tendencies which become habits eventually; for instance if they lie, they themselves actually believe it. 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 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 Gloucestershire. We take you away from the substance with the help of our detox program because it is our priority.
Alcohol Rehab Gloucestershire 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 quiet and private space in which people can think about their life, feelings, what they have become and what they wish to be in the future. We also offer discipline and positive patterns through our surroundings filled with rules and limitations. 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 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. 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. Then we equip people to alter their thoughts, learn to live with their feelings and consequently adapt their conduct. A very straightforward and pragmatic set of tools, a 12-step program, is taught and it has so far helped, for almost a century, addicts to become free and sober.
We motivate individuals when they need to be seeing something but aren't while giving them room to make mistakes that they learn from. 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.
Each day spent in treatment is another step towards succeeding in the long run.
We also work to offer support to our client's loved ones.
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 Gloucestershire, 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.
All of this is completed between 2 to 24 weeks. Many of our clients come to Alcohol Rehab Gloucestershire 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. Re-housing and relocation via Alcohol Rehab Gloucestershire housing are also offered, if someone needed a truly fresh start to life in a new town, with new people and real opportunity.
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.
