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 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.
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, 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 patients are also only capable of operating in relationships that are dysfunctional; they are not capable of loving truly and the guilt as well as shame they feel does not allow them to find the strength to ask for help or 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 Cardiff 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.
Drug Rehab Cardiff provides you a medically assisted withdrawal that is overseen by a private Doctor and monitored by one of our registered Nurses.
When we have an individual whose body is free from the substance we take help from our primary, secondary and day-care rehab program so that we may start to work on their mind and spirit.
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. We also offer an atmosphere with rules and limits which offer the containment and structure. We let our patients know that the world is based on rules that are created to keep them secure and to provide fairness with straightforward rules, like not being late for group sessions. 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.
We start to empower people throughout the treatment process to build positive 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. We offer the 12 step program which is an uncomplicated and useful set of resources that has helped people achieve sobriety and quit substance abuse for almost a century.
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. 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.
Long term results are acquired by gradually creating a new life in rehab.
We try to support the loved ones of our patients as well.
This is absolutely critical so at Drug Rehab Cardiff, family members have an opportunity to meet others who have been through the same experience and learn how to support the client after treatment because it is people that will have to live with our clients after treatment.
We accomplish these throughout the next 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 Cardiff. 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. We also provide relocation and rehousing services through Drug Rehab Cardiff Housing for those looking to get a completely fresh beginning in a new place with new communities and a real chance.
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.
