Our Approach In Portsmouth At Drug Rehab Portsmouth
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.
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. 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.
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. In addition our clients are only familiar with how to act in troubled relationships, they can no longer love truly and the embarrassment and self-reproach they suffer mean that they can't find the pluck to apologise or to request some assistance. 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.
Modifying all these things is what Drug Rehab Portsmouth is dedicated to do. The primary thing which needs to be done is to get the patient away from the substance which can be fulfilled only through a comprehensive detox procedure.
Drug Rehab Portsmouth 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.
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 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 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 start to empower people throughout the treatment process to build positive 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 also carry out encouraging individuals to alter their views, acknowledge their emotions and consequently modify how they conduct themselves. 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 motivate individuals when they need to be seeing something but aren't while giving them room to make mistakes that they learn from. 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.
We as well endeavour to assist the client's immediate family and intimate colleagues.
This is absolutely critical so at Drug Rehab Portsmouth, 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.
This all takes place over the course of 2 to 24 weeks. Many of our clients come to Drug Rehab Portsmouth with a number of years of active addiction and often many years of distress before that. 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 Portsmouth 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.
