You will instantly experience a feeling of optimism, friendliness and a kind family environment when you enter one of our treatment facilities.
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.
A reality where regular rules and society "laws" are not respected is common for many drug and alcohol addicts. In many cases they are very poor with boundaries and can behave immorally and do things they already know are unacceptable or wrong.
Regrettably they adopt these behaviours strongly with an example being an individual who is so immersed in lying that they begin to believe their lies as being what is true. Additionally, the clients we work with learn how to conduct themselves in meaningless relations as they no longer have the capability to really care for someone; moreover, they live in remorse and reproach that they find it difficult to seek assistance and apologize. 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 are attempting to do at Alcohol Rehab Leeds is to alter all these. 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 Leeds can offer a medically assisted withdrawal that is supervised by a private medical practitioner and observed by a registered nurse who forms part of our team.
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 make available a secure, private environment where people can take stock of themselves (their feelings and thoughts), who they truly are and who they wish to become. 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 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. We then encourage patients to acknowledge their emotions, modify their thoughts and then modify their actions as well. 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 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.
Every day in the treatment works as a building block for long term success.
We also work to offer support to our client's loved ones.

This is absolutely critical so at Alcohol Rehab Leeds, 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. 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 Alcohol Rehab Leeds. 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. 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 Alcohol Rehab Leeds 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.
