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.
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.
Several individuals who are dependent to drugs and alcohol exist in a community where standard regulation and social policies are not being 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.
Unfortunately these behaviours become 'learned' as they go through life; for instance, you may have experienced someone lying so often that they actually satisfy themselves that what they are saying is true. 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. Selfish pursuit of substance does not give them the time nor purpose to care for others because they have lost the ability to care for themselves and their compulsive.
What we are attempting to do at Drug Rehab Sheffield is to alter all these. The first step in the process is quitting the substance which is achieved through the detox programs.
Drug Rehab Sheffield offers withdrawal that is medically supervised by a doctor and followed through by one of our certified nurses.
Through our primary, secondary and day-care treatment program, we are able to begin dealing with the mind and life force of addicts after we have cleared them off drugs or alcohol.
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. In addition, we make available a space with boundaries and regulations that keeps them under control and offer them a sense of being organized. Simple rules such as being in the group on time, show our clients that the world is a place with standards which are there for fairness and to keep people secure. 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. We achieve this by beginning with the creation of a family like environment where patients begin bonding with others who are in treatment with a sense of collective belonging while also rebuilding the faith and trust of their loved ones through consistent contact with friends and family. The next step involves enabling people to redirect their line of thinking, accommodate their own feelings and eventually change their behaviour. 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 challenge individuals when they are unable to acknowledge what they need to although we also let them commit blunders and gain some insights from these. We also empower our clients to obtain a new set of positive 'learned' behaviours via the intense structure of the programme and the quasi-residential living model; by having some responsibility to manage money, by being in the community and living in shared accommodation, do a weekly shop, cook for themselves and live in the community, We teach our clients every single day how to 'live' in the real world without needing a substance to get them through.
Each day spent in treatment is another step towards succeeding in the long run.
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 Sheffield, and to understand how to encourage patients after rehab.
We get through all of this in a duration that can last between two and twenty four 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 Sheffield. 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. Re-housing and relocation via Drug Rehab Sheffield housing are also offered, if someone needed a truly fresh start to life in a new town, with new people and real opportunity.
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.
