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.
Unluckily most of the people we see have a tendency to only respond in a manner that caters to their main focus which is to run away from reality and evade the experiences of thinking and feeling negatively.
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. 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.
Regrettably they adopt these behaviours strongly with an example being an individual who is so immersed in lying that they begin to believe their lies as being what is true. 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 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.
What we are attempting to do at Drug Rehab Belfast is to alter all these. The first step that is needed is to remove the drug and we do this with the help of a detoxification program.
Drug Rehab Belfast provides you a medically assisted withdrawal that is overseen by a private Doctor and monitored by one of our registered Nurses.
When we have an individual whose body is free from the substance we take help from our primary, secondary and day-care rehab program so that we may start to work on their mind and spirit.
We offer a secure and protected atmosphere for individuals to rediscover themselves by assessing their views, feelings, their past and their future plans. We as well endeavour to give an atmosphere where regulations and limits are set in order to establish control and organization. Basic rules like not showing up at group late, demonstrate to our clients that the outside world has conventions that exist to keep people secure and ensure just treatment. We endeavour to inspire optimism by way of example; for instance the knowledge that one of our specialists also went through drug dependency and has remained sober for over a decade now shows clients that this is possible.
We are able to encourage patients to work on positive relationships using the rehab process. 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 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 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 day in the treatment works as a building block for long term success.
We also work to offer support to our client's loved ones.
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 Belfast, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
We accomplish these throughout the next 2 to 24 weeks. Several clients who consult us for the first time in Drug Rehab Belfast have experienced several years of dependency and even years of suffering prior to that. A lot of time is required for patients to accept their new lifestyles since it a lot of time is needed to unwind the disorder of someone's life in dependency, which can lead to greater long-term results. Re-housing and relocation via Drug Rehab Belfast 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.
