Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centres in Milnrow
At Addiction Helper, we are acutely aware of how much misunderstanding exists in relation to drug rehab in Milnrow, and throughout the UK for that matter. Despite all the changes and improvements that have been made in the rehab environment over the last several decades, most people still think of rehab in terms of the way things used to be. But the past is the past. Things are much different now.
The ethos and approach to modern rehab are rooted in a body of scientific knowledge that we didn’t have before. For example, years of research has revealed that addictive behaviour goes well beyond just personal choice. There are medical and psychological aspects that not only encourage addictive behaviour but also make it incredibly difficult to change. Therefore, we now look at rehab as a medical issue requiring professional help. If you need drug or alcohol rehab in Milnrow, we hope you’ll contact us to learn more about how it works.
Addiction Helper is an organisation committed to assisting substance abusers and their families as they seek relief from addictive behaviour. We fully support the modern ethos and treatment approach that addresses substance abuse and addiction as conditions that affect the body, mind and spirit. To that end, we also support rehab efforts based on a holistic model that treats the entire person.
An Ethos of Understanding and Compassion
Entering a modern rehab clinic immediately exposes a substance abuser to an environment that is noticeably medically focused. This may cause a bit of anxiety in some people, but patients are quick to realise that the doctors, nurses, therapists and support staff are caring and compassionate individuals who truly want to help.
Today it’s normal for rehab clinics to be built on a culture of understanding and compassion toward clients. It is normal for clinic operators to seek out the absolute best staff they can find, staff that truly sees each client as an individual with his or her own needs. Many substance abusers are surprised to discover that some of the people providing care have gone through drug or alcohol rehab themselves.
You might be wondering why there is such a concentration on understanding and compassion, when that may not have been the case in the past. It’s no more difficult than this: we have learned that the one-size-fits-all approach of the past no longer works. We have learned that in order for people to truly overcome substance abuse and addiction, we have to invest in who they are so they can learn to invest in themselves. Recovery is about more than just medical treatment; it’s about changing lives. And that requires understanding and compassion.
Our Approach to Drug Rehab in Milnrow
The approach we take at Addiction Helper is one of offering our services freely and confidentially to all who want them. Our number one goal is to make sure every client we work with eventually receives the kind of treatment necessary to get victory over substance abuse or addiction. Yes, there are times when we work with clients who ultimately don’t want to get well. But most of those we work with contact us because they are ready to take their lives back. We are ready to step in and help them make it happen.
When you call our 24-hour helpline for yourself or a loved one, you’ll be greeted by a fully trained counsellor who adheres to the same ethos of understanding and compassion. Our counsellor will answer your questions, explain your options, and make recommendations for treatment and treatment facilities. If you need help arranging care, we will do our best to assist you with that as well. Our approach is one of doing whatever we can to help those in need.
Clinical Approach to Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Milnrow
The clinical approach taken by the facilities we work with is based on the concept of treating the whole person – body, mind and spirit. The body is treated through detox, nutrition, exercise, etc. Mind and spirit are treated through various rehab therapies designed to help clients understand who they are and how they can change their lives.
We refer to the work rehab clinics do as ‘treatment’, but that word is truly inadequate. Yes, clinics treat the physical and psychological aspects of addiction that prevent substance abusers from living normal lives. But they do so much more. They help restore what drugs and alcohol have stolen by teaching clients how to once again be true to themselves and who they are. They empower clients to take their lives back so they can go on to enjoy their families, careers, and everything else without the influence of drugs or alcohol.
