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.
Regrettably, getting away from reality and evading the negative emotions and thoughts that are always with them and supported is how most of the people we cooperate with know how to behave, in accordance with their main focus.
Most drug and alcohol addicts do not conform to the rules and norms that are followed by others. Frequently their boundaries are useless and their behaviour can at times be morally wrong and not align with what they realise to be correct to do.
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. Additionally, the clients we work with learn how to conduct themselves in meaningless relations as they no longer have the capability to really care for someone; moreover, they live in remorse and reproach that they find it difficult to seek assistance and apologize. 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.
Modifying all these things is what Alcohol Rehab Kent is dedicated to do. The first step that is needed is to remove the drug and we do this with the help of a detoxification program.
Alcohol Rehab Kent is able to deliver clinically-monitored withdrawal which is also supervised by expert physicians and looked after by our efficient medical staff.
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.
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. We also offer discipline and positive patterns through our surroundings filled with rules and limitations. 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 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.
During the whole treatment process we begin to equip people to foster good relationships. 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. 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 individuals when they are unable to acknowledge what they need to although we also let them commit blunders and gain some insights from these. 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.
Each day spent in treatment is another step towards succeeding in the long run.
It is also our goal to support our clients' loved ones.
This is really key as after the treatment has been completed these people will have to stay with our clients, therefore at Alcohol 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.
We accomplish these throughout the next 2 to 24 weeks. Most people come to Alcohol Rehab Kent with a long history of active addiction and a past filled with miserable years behind them. 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 Alcohol Rehab Kent housing are also offered, if someone needed a truly fresh start to life in a new town, with new people and real opportunity.
Our goal is always to offer our patients, regardless of how long they are in rehab, a strong foundation for a fresh start and life in recovery.
