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.
Many people addicted to drugs and alcohol live in a world that doesn't follow the normal rules and societal 'standards'. 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, 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. 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 Glasgow is to change all of this. We take you away from the substance with the help of our detox program because it is our priority.
Drug Rehab Glasgow 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.
We offer a secure and protected atmosphere for individuals to rediscover themselves by assessing their views, feelings, their past and their future plans. 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 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.
Even during the treatment procedure, we begin to inspire clients to establish optimistic relations. Firstly we recreate an atmosphere to do this which is like a family; clients get the chance to form bonds with other people in treatment and a collective sense of belonging, as well as re-establishing trust within their own families through regular contact with loved ones. Then we equip people to alter their thoughts, learn to live with their feelings and consequently adapt their conduct. We teach the 12 step program to our clients - a very simple and practical set of tools which is effective in helping the people get sober and clean for nearly 100 years.
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 strict structure and pseudo residential accommodation, our patients are also empowered to acquire new "learned" habits that are positive by, participating in a community where accommodation is shared while also taking up financial responsibility, going shopping, preparing meals etc. which teaches them how to operate in the world without the needing to take a substance every day.
Every single day spent in treatment is an essential step towards success in the long run.
We also work to offer support to our client's loved ones.
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 Glasgow, 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.
We accomplish these throughout the next 2 to 24 weeks. Many of our clients come to Drug Rehab Glasgow with a number of years of active addiction and often many years of distress before that. 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. Re-housing and relocation via Drug Rehab Glasgow housing are also offered, if someone needed a truly fresh start to life in a new town, with new people and real opportunity.
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.
