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.
Unluckily most of the people we see have a tendency to only respond in a manner that caters to their main focus which is to run away from reality and evade the experiences of thinking and feeling negatively.
Most drug and alcohol addicts do not conform to the rules and norms that are followed by others. In many cases they are very poor with boundaries and can behave immorally and do things they already know are unacceptable or 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. 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. They have allowed themselves to be immersed in the obsessive and self-centred tendencies caused by the drugs they are taking that they no longer look after themselves nor think about the needs of others.
What we are attempting to do at Alcohol Rehab Cardiff is to alter all these. With our detox therapy, we accomplish the first step on the list, which is getting rid of drugs or alcohol.
Alcohol Rehab Cardiff 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.
Once we are done ridding the individual's body from any residue of the drug, we then proceed with cleansing the spirit and mind through our basic and supplementary day rehab programmes.
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. Basic rules like not showing up at group late, demonstrate to our clients that the outside world has conventions that exist to keep people secure and ensure just treatment. 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. We achieve this by beginning with the creation of a family like environment where patients begin bonding with others who are in treatment with a sense of collective belonging while also rebuilding the faith and trust of their loved ones through consistent contact with friends and family. 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 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. Our patients are getting a grasp of living in the real world without requiring any substance to help them do it by using a fierce structure of our rehab and the atmosphere of a real residential situation; that way, we encourage them to equip themselves with fresh, positive behaviours and to achieve this by becoming a part of the society and living together with others, by cooking for themselves, by learning how to manage their cash and to be responsible, do shopping for a week and live in a community.
Each day spent in treatment is another step towards succeeding in the long run.
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 Alcohol Rehab Cardiff, 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.
All of this is completed between 2 to 24 weeks. Several of our clients come to Alcohol Rehab Cardiff with countless years of active addiction and frequently they have endured several years of sadness before their addiction started. 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. If anyone wants a completely new beginning in a new place, with new people and a real chance, we can also provide, thanks to our Alcohol Rehab Cardiff Housing, moving and re-housing.
However long someone is with us, our purpose is to provide them with a solid foundation for a life in recovery, a new start.
