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.
Unfortunately, a large number of the people we work with only know how to act in a way that looks after their main focus; to avoid the negative feelings and thoughts and escape the reality they are constantly experiencing and re-enforcing.
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. 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.
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. They can no longer look after themselves and their uncontrollable inconsiderate search for drugs doesn't allow them the time or motivation to look after other people.
Basically at Alcohol Rehab Sheffield, what we endeavour to do is change. The first step that is needed is to remove the drug and we do this with the help of a detoxification program.
Controlled by a private Doctor and supervised by one of our licensed Nurses, Alcohol Rehab Sheffield 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 an atmosphere with rules and limits which offer the containment and structure. 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 endeavour to inspire optimism by way of example; for instance the knowledge that one of our specialists also went through drug dependency and has remained sober for over a decade now shows clients that this is possible.
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. The next step involves enabling people to redirect their line of thinking, accommodate their own feelings and eventually change their behaviour. 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 comprehensive and quasi-residential living environment, we encourage our clients to acquire fresh set of optimistic absorbed behaviour; by being immersed in the society and staying in shared lodgings, being given the task to handle a budget, doing weekly groceries, prepare food for themselves and reside in a society, these clients are gaining insights each day on how it is to exist in an actual community without ever using drugs to survive.
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 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 Alcohol Rehab Sheffield, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
This lasts for 2 to 24 weeks. Most people come to Alcohol Rehab Sheffield with a long history of active addiction and a past filled with miserable years behind them. 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 a person wishes for a really new beginning in a brand new place with brand new neighbours and true possibilities, our Alcohol Rehab Sheffield Housing can also provide relocation 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.
