When you drop by into any of our rehab facilities, what you will notice right away is the warm atmosphere filled with so much optimism, faith and compassion.
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.
A reality where regular rules and society "laws" are not respected is common for many drug and alcohol addicts. In many cases they are very poor with boundaries and can behave immorally and do things they already know are unacceptable or wrong.
Sadly as they lead their lives this behaviour becomes 'learned', e.g. you might have encountered someone who lies so regularly that he/she in fact persuades himself/herself that he/she is actually speaking the truth. 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.
What we primarily attempt to achieve at Alcohol Rehab Brighton is to change all of this. With our detox therapy, we accomplish the first step on the list, which is getting rid of drugs or alcohol.
Alcohol Rehab Brighton offers withdrawal that is medically supervised by a doctor and followed through by one of our certified nurses.
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 provide a confidential and safe space for people to discover themselves - their emotions and thoughts - who they exactly are and what they want to be. We also offer an atmosphere with rules and limits which offer the containment and structure. 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 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.
Even during the treatment procedure, we begin to inspire clients to establish optimistic relations. 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. The next step involves enabling people to redirect their line of thinking, accommodate their own feelings and eventually change their behaviour. 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 permit people to make errors and take something from their errors, but we do confront people if they are unable to see what they should be seeing. 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.
Each day spent in treatment is another step towards succeeding in the long run.
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 Alcohol Rehab Brighton, 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.
We get through all of this in a duration that can last between two and twenty four weeks. Most people come to Alcohol Rehab Brighton with a long history of active addiction and a past filled with miserable years behind them. It actually takes a long time to undo all the issues that come to a person's life while in addiction which means that having more time to adopt to the new lifestyle, the better the results in the long term. Re-housing and relocation via Alcohol Rehab Brighton 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.
