How We Work At Alcohol Rehab Sunderland In Sunderland before-rehab

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.

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. Most of the time, they cross the line of what is considered permissible and can still really engage in activities which they themselves perceive and consider as morally 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. Broken relationships are often the only surrounding in which some of our patients know how to act; the embarrassment and guilt they feel don't allow them to seek help or to apologize and they are not able to experience real love. 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.

Basically at Alcohol Rehab Sunderland, what we endeavour to do is change. The first step in the process is quitting the substance which is achieved through the detox programs.


Controlled by a private Doctor and supervised by one of our licensed Nurses, Alcohol Rehab Sunderland is able to offer a medically assisted withdrawal.


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 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 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.

During the whole treatment process we begin to equip people to foster good 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. Then we equip people to alter their thoughts, learn to live with their feelings and consequently adapt their conduct. We also familiarise our clients with the 12-step program (really basic and practical tools that have been assisting people to get sober for almost a century).

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. Through the programme's strict structure and pseudo residential accommodation, our patients are also empowered to acquire new "learned" habits that are positive by, participating in a community where accommodation is shared while also taking up financial responsibility, going shopping, preparing meals etc. which teaches them how to operate in the world without the needing to take a substance every day.

Every day in the treatment works as a building block for long term success.

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 Sunderland, 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. Several of our clients come to Alcohol Rehab Sunderland with countless years of active addiction and frequently they have endured several years of sadness before their addiction started. 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 a person wishes for a really new beginning in a brand new place with brand new neighbours and true possibilities, our Alcohol Rehab Sunderland Housing can also provide relocation and re-housing.

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.
