Our Work And How We At Drug Rehab Kent In Kent Do It
You will instantly experience a feeling of optimism, friendliness and a kind family environment when you enter one of our treatment facilities.
Sadly most people who we work with are only familiar with behaving in such a manner that attends to their main focus - to get away from reality and to dodge negative emotions and thoughts that they're re-enforcing and experiencing all the time.
Many people addicted to drugs and alcohol live in a world that doesn't follow the normal rules and societal 'standards'. Most of the time, they cross the line of what is considered permissible and can still really engage in activities which they themselves perceive and consider as morally wrong.
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. 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 Kent 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 Kent 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.
As soon as the individual's body is free from the drug we can begin to focus on the spirit and mind by employing our day-care, primary and secondary rehabilitation programmes.
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. Simple rules such as being in the group on time, show our clients that the world is a place with standards which are there for fairness and to keep people secure. 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.
During the whole treatment process we begin to equip people to foster good 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. 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 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. 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.
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 really key as after the treatment has been completed these people will have to stay with our clients, therefore at Drug Rehab Kent, 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.
This lasts for 2 to 24 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 Kent. The more time people can have adopting this new lifestyle, the better the long-term outcome because it can take a long time to 'un-weave' the chaos of someone's life in addiction. If a person wishes for a really new beginning in a brand new place with brand new neighbours and true possibilities, our Drug Rehab Kent Housing can also provide relocation and re-housing.
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.
