When you drop by into any of our rehab facilities, what you will notice right away is the warm atmosphere filled with so much optimism, faith and compassion.
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.
Countless people who are battling a drug or alcohol addiction find themselves in a world where standard regulations and societal conventions are not adhered to. In many cases they are very poor with boundaries and can behave immorally and do things they already know are unacceptable or wrong.
Regrettably they adopt these behaviours strongly with an example being an individual who is so immersed in lying that they begin to believe their lies as being what is true. 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 primarily attempt to achieve at Alcohol Rehab Sussex is to change all of this. The primary thing which needs to be done is to get the patient away from the substance which can be fulfilled only through a comprehensive detox procedure.
Controlled by a private Doctor and supervised by one of our licensed Nurses, Alcohol Rehab Sussex is able to offer a medically assisted withdrawal.
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 quiet and private space in which people can think about their life, feelings, what they have become and what they wish to be in the future. We also offer discipline and positive patterns through our surroundings filled with rules and limitations. 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 offer optimism, because by observing that your counsellor also battled an addiction and is now enjoying sobriety for 13 years, you realise that it can be achieved.
We start to empower people throughout the treatment process to build positive relationships. 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. In order to change the thoughts, accept the feelings and subsequently change the behaviour we go about empowering people. 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 motivate individuals when they need to be seeing something but aren't while giving them room to make mistakes that they learn from. 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.
Each day spent in treatment is another step towards succeeding 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 Alcohol Rehab Sussex, 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. Most people come to Alcohol Rehab Sussex with a long history of active addiction and a past filled with miserable years behind them. A lot of time is required for patients to accept their new lifestyles since it a lot of time is needed to unwind the disorder of someone's life in dependency, which can lead to greater long-term results. 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 Sussex Housing, moving and re-housing.
Regardless of the time you will be with us, our objective is to empower you so that you have a strong foundation for a fresh start and life in recovery.
