You will instantly experience a feeling of optimism, friendliness and a kind family environment when you enter one of our treatment facilities.
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.
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. 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.
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. In addition our clients are only familiar with how to act in troubled relationships, they can no longer love truly and the embarrassment and self-reproach they suffer mean that they can't find the pluck to apologise or to request some assistance. 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 primarily attempt to achieve at Drug Rehab Southampton 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, Drug Rehab Southampton is able to offer a medically assisted withdrawal.
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.
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. Basic policies are set such as being punctual for sessions and this alone gives our clients an idea that each community has certain rules in place in order to maintain equality and safety. 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 are able to encourage patients to work on positive relationships using the rehab process. 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. Then we equip people to alter their thoughts, learn to live with their feelings and consequently adapt their conduct. We also familiarise our clients with the 12-step program (really basic and practical tools that have been assisting people to get sober for almost a century).
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 for treatment serves as a stepping stone towards long lasting achievement.
We also focus on supporting the family members and close friends of our clients.

This is very important since they are the people that will be living with your patients after rehab, so family and friends have a chance to get to know others who dealt with same situations, here at Drug Rehab Southampton, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
This all takes place over the course of 2 to 24 weeks. Several clients who consult us for the first time in Drug Rehab Southampton have experienced several years of dependency and even years of suffering prior to that. 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 Drug Rehab Southampton Housing, moving 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.
