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.
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.
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. Our clients also only understand how to behave in dysfunctional relationships; they are out of the ability to truly love and the guilt and shame they experience mean they are unable to find the courage to ask for help or to say sorry. They are not capable of looking after themselves and because of their selfish and compulsive substance abuse, they do not have the motivation or time to look after others.
Modifying all these things is what Alcohol Rehab Glasgow is dedicated to do. 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.
Alcohol Rehab Glasgow is able to deliver clinically-monitored withdrawal which is also supervised by expert physicians and looked after by our efficient medical staff.
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 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. 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 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.
At every step of the process of treatment, individuals are empowered to develop positive relations. 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. We then encourage patients to acknowledge their emotions, modify their thoughts and then modify their actions as well. We teach the 12 step program to our clients - a very simple and practical set of tools which is effective in helping the people get sober and clean for nearly 100 years.
We permit people to make errors and take something from their errors, but we do confront people if they are unable to see what they should be seeing. 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.
Every single day spent in treatment is an essential step towards success in the long run.
It is also our goal to support our clients' loved ones.

This is absolutely critical so at Alcohol Rehab Glasgow, 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.
All of this is completed between 2 to 24 weeks. Several of our clients come to Alcohol Rehab Glasgow with countless years of active addiction and frequently they have endured several years of sadness before their addiction started. 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. Re-housing and relocation via Alcohol Rehab Glasgow 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.
