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.
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.
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. Often they have ineffective limits and their behaviours can sometimes be immoral and go against what they recognize is the right thing 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. Additionally, the clients we work with learn how to conduct themselves in meaningless relations as they no longer have the capability to really care for someone; moreover, they live in remorse and reproach that they find it difficult to seek assistance and apologize. Selfish pursuit of substance does not give them the time nor purpose to care for others because they have lost the ability to care for themselves and their compulsive.
Essentially our aim is to change everything by what we try to do at Drug Rehab Swansea. We take you away from the substance with the help of our detox program because it is our priority.
Controlled by a private Doctor and supervised by one of our licensed Nurses, Drug Rehab Swansea is able to offer a medically assisted withdrawal.
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 an atmosphere with rules and limits which offer the containment and structure. 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 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.
During the whole treatment process we begin to equip people to foster good relationships. 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. We then encourage patients to acknowledge their emotions, modify their thoughts and then modify their actions as well. 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 individuals when they are unable to acknowledge what they need to although we also let them commit blunders and gain some insights from these. We also empower our clients to obtain a new set of positive 'learned' behaviours via the intense structure of the programme and the quasi-residential living model; by having some responsibility to manage money, by being in the community and living in shared accommodation, do a weekly shop, cook for themselves and live in the community, We teach our clients every single day how to 'live' in the real world without needing a substance to get them through.
Long term results are acquired by gradually creating a new life in rehab.
It is also our goal to support our clients' loved ones.
This is really key as after the treatment has been completed these people will have to stay with our clients, therefore at Drug Rehab Swansea, 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 Swansea. The more time people can have adopting this new lifestyle, the better the long-term outcome because it can take a long time to 'un-weave' the chaos of someone's life in addiction. We also cater to requests for relocation or transfer through Drug Rehab Swansea 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.
