When you get to any of our facilities you immediately experience excellent hospitality with a loving family environment where hope, positivity and warmth thrive.
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.
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. Broken relationships are often the only surrounding in which some of our patients know how to act; the embarrassment and guilt they feel don't allow them to seek help or to apologize and they are not able to experience real love. 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 are attempting to do at Alcohol Rehab Hertfordshire is to alter all these. The first step in the process is quitting the substance which is achieved through the detox programs.
Alcohol Rehab Hertfordshire 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.
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. The rules and guidelines at our facilities offer a structured and ordered environment. The simplest rules such as timely attendance of group sessions demonstrate to the patients that following norms brings about fairness and helps with safe guarding everyone. You are motivated by knowing that your counsellor was also an addict and is now 13 years sober and clean, proves to someone that it's not impossible.
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 challenge people when they are unable to see what they need to see but we allow them to make mistakes so that they may learn from them. 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.
It is also our goal to support our clients' loved ones.
This is very important since they are the people that will be living with your patients after rehab, so family and friends have a chance to get to know others who dealt with same situations, here at Alcohol Rehab Hertfordshire, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
This all takes place over the course of 2 to 24 weeks. Several clients who consult us for the first time in Alcohol Rehab Hertfordshire have experienced several years of dependency and even years of suffering prior to that. Basically it can require a lot of time to untwist the disorder of the person's life caused by addiction, therefore if people have more time to embrace their brand new way of living, their results in the long run will be more positive. We also cater to requests for relocation or transfer through Alcohol Rehab Hertfordshire Housing so that it's easy for anyone to really start anew in a different place, new neighbourhood and welcome new chances.
However long someone is with us, our purpose is to provide them with a solid foundation for a life in recovery, a new start.
