When you get to any of our facilities you immediately experience excellent hospitality with a loving family environment where hope, positivity and warmth thrive.
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.
Several individuals who are dependent to drugs and alcohol exist in a community where standard regulation and social policies are not being 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, these actions become "adopted" as they deal with life problems; for instance, you might know someone that is sure that he or she is telling the truth even though they are in fact lying on a regular basis. Our clients also only understand how to behave in dysfunctional relationships; they are out of the ability to truly love and the guilt and shame they experience mean they are unable to find the courage to ask for help or to say sorry. They can no longer look after themselves and their uncontrollable inconsiderate search for drugs doesn't allow them the time or motivation to look after other people.
What we are attempting to do at Alcohol Rehab Norfolk 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.
Alcohol Rehab Norfolk 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.
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 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 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.
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. Then we equip people to alter their thoughts, learn to live with their feelings and consequently adapt their conduct. We also familiarise our clients with the 12-step program (really basic and practical tools that have been assisting people to get sober for almost a century).
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. Through the programme's comprehensive and quasi-residential living environment, we encourage our clients to acquire fresh set of optimistic absorbed behaviour; by being immersed in the society and staying in shared lodgings, being given the task to handle a budget, doing weekly groceries, prepare food for themselves and reside in a society, these clients are gaining insights each day on how it is to exist in an actual community without ever using drugs to survive.
Long term results are acquired by gradually creating a new life in rehab.
We also focus on supporting the family members and close friends of our clients.
This is absolutely critical so at Alcohol Rehab Norfolk, 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.
We accomplish these throughout the next 2 to 24 weeks. Several clients who consult us for the first time in Alcohol Rehab Norfolk have experienced several years of dependency and even years of suffering prior to that. Actually, it can really take long to undo the disorder in one's life caused by drug dependency; thus, the earlier these individuals embrace a cleansed life, the earlier as well they get to have normal lives. We also cater to requests for relocation or transfer through Alcohol Rehab Norfolk Housing so that it's easy for anyone to really start anew in a different place, new neighbourhood and welcome new chances.
Regardless of how long the person has used our services, we always try to give them firm support for a new life towards complete recovery and fresh start.
