You will immediately feel a sense of warmth, of positivity, of hope and a caring family atmosphere when you walk into one of our treatment centres.
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.
Most drug and alcohol addicts do not conform to the rules and norms that are followed by others. In many cases they are very poor with boundaries and can behave immorally and do things they already know are unacceptable or 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. 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. Their uncontrollable, egoistic chase for substances leaves them without time or desire to worry about others since they are also not able to worry about themselves.
Modifying all these things is what Drug Rehab Plymouth 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 Plymouth is able to deliver clinically-monitored withdrawal which is also supervised by expert physicians and looked after by our efficient medical staff.
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. We also offer discipline and positive patterns through our surroundings filled with rules and limitations. 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 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. The primary thing we make sure is to establish a family-like atmosphere in which clients begin to establish relationship with other individuals who are also seeking treatment, having mutual feeling of being able to fit in, restoring confidence in their respective families by way of consistent interactions with them. 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 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 day in the treatment works as a building block for long term success.
We try to support the loved ones of our patients as well.
This is really key as after the treatment has been completed these people will have to stay with our clients, therefore at Drug Rehab Plymouth, members of the family get a chance to interact with other people who've faced identical experiences and familiarise themselves with how to provide support to the client after the treatment has ended.
This all takes place over the course of 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 Drug Rehab Plymouth. 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 Drug Rehab Plymouth 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.
