When you get to any of our facilities you immediately experience excellent hospitality with a loving family environment where hope, positivity and warmth thrive.
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. 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, as they go along their every day lives, they develop inappropriate tendencies which become habits eventually; for instance if they lie, they themselves actually believe it. 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. They have allowed themselves to be immersed in the obsessive and self-centred tendencies caused by the drugs they are taking that they no longer look after themselves nor think about the needs of others.
What we are attempting to do at Drug Rehab Leeds is to alter all these. 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 Leeds can offer a medically assisted withdrawal that is supervised by a private medical practitioner and observed by a registered nurse who forms part of our team.
Through our primary, secondary and day-care treatment program, we are able to begin dealing with the mind and life force of addicts after we have cleared them off drugs or alcohol.
Our facilities are a safe and discrete environment where the individual can examine themselves by looking into their emotions and thoughts, what they are looking to become and who they truly are. In addition, we make available a space with boundaries and regulations that keeps them under control and offer them a sense of being organized. 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 start to empower people throughout the treatment process to build positive relationships. The primary thing we make sure is to establish a family-like atmosphere in which clients begin to establish relationship with other individuals who are also seeking treatment, having mutual feeling of being able to fit in, restoring confidence in their respective families by way of consistent interactions with them. 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 let our patients make mistakes so they can learn from them, but we also encourage them to see what they should see when they are not able. 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 try to support the loved ones of our patients as well.
This is definitely vital since these are the very individuals who will spend more time with our clients after their treatment; thus, here at Drug Rehab Leeds, the immediate family are given the chance to interact with those who have experienced the same difficulty so that they gain insight on how to assist their loved one soon after.
This lasts for 2 to 24 weeks. Most people come to Drug Rehab Leeds 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. If anyone wants a completely new beginning in a new place, with new people and a real chance, we can also provide, thanks to our Drug Rehab Leeds Housing, moving and re-housing.
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.
