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. 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.
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. 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.
Basically at Alcohol Rehab Newcastle, 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.
Alcohol Rehab Newcastle 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. We as well endeavour to give an atmosphere where regulations and limits are set in order to establish control and organization. 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. We offer optimism, because by observing that your counsellor also battled an addiction and is now enjoying sobriety for 13 years, you realise that it can be achieved.
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. In order to change the thoughts, accept the feelings and subsequently change the behaviour we go about empowering people. We offer the 12 step program which is an uncomplicated and useful set of resources that has helped people achieve sobriety and quit substance abuse 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.
Each day spent in treatment is another step towards succeeding in the long run.
We also focus on supporting the family members and close friends of our clients.
This is absolutely critical so at Alcohol Rehab Newcastle, family members have an opportunity to meet others who have been through the same experience and learn how to support the client after treatment because it is people that will have to live with our clients after treatment.
All of this is completed between 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 Newcastle. 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 cater to requests for relocation or transfer through Alcohol Rehab Newcastle Housing so that it's easy for anyone to really start anew in a different place, new neighbourhood and welcome new chances.
Regardless of how long the person has used our services, we always try to give them firm support for a new life towards complete recovery and fresh start.
