You will immediately feel a sense of warmth, of positivity, of hope and a caring family atmosphere when you walk into one of our treatment centres.
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. Their actions can in certain situations be unethical and not in accordance with their own set of values, but they also commonly have inefficient limitations.
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. 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. Their uncontrollable, egoistic chase for substances leaves them without time or desire to worry about others since they are also not able to worry about themselves.
What we primarily attempt to achieve at Drug Rehab Sussex is to change all of this. The first step that is needed is to remove the drug and we do this with the help of a detoxification program.
Drug Rehab Sussex offers withdrawal that is medically supervised by a doctor and followed through by one of our certified nurses.
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.
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 policies are set such as being punctual for sessions and this alone gives our clients an idea that each community has certain rules in place in order to maintain equality and safety. We also offer hope - when you discover that the counsellor working with you had been an addict and has managed to stay sober and clean for 13 years, you get the belief and inspiration that it is possible.
At every step of the process of treatment, individuals are empowered to develop positive relations. 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. We offer the 12 step program which is an uncomplicated and useful set of resources that has helped people achieve sobriety and quit substance abuse 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. By employing the powerful system of the quasi-residential living model and the programme, we in addition equip our clients to get a brand new assortment of positive 'learned' behaviours; by residing in shared housing and forming part of the community, by having some onus to look after money, complete weekly shopping, prepare food for themselves and reside in the community, our clients are being taught each day how to 'live' in the outside world without requiring a drug to assist them.
Every day in the treatment works as a building block for long term success.
We also work to offer support to our client's 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 Sussex, 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. 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 Sussex. A lot of time is required for patients to accept their new lifestyles since it a lot of time is needed to unwind the disorder of someone's life in dependency, which can lead to greater long-term results. If a person wishes for a really new beginning in a brand new place with brand new neighbours and true possibilities, our Drug Rehab Sussex Housing can also provide relocation and re-housing.
We'll at all times strive to offer someone a sound basis so that he/she can benefit from a brand new start and recovery regardless of how long he/she spends with us.
