Our Work And How We At Drug Rehab York In York Do It before-rehab

A kind family atmosphere and a feeling of understanding, of optimism, of faith, are always present in every one of our rehab facilities that you choose to visit.


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. 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.


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. 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 York is to alter all these. We take you away from the substance with the help of our detox program because it is our priority.


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


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.

Our facilities are a safe and discrete environment where the individual can examine themselves by looking into their emotions and thoughts, what they are looking to become and who they truly are. We as well endeavour to give an atmosphere where regulations and limits are set in order to establish control and organization. Basic policies are set such as being punctual for sessions and this alone gives our clients an idea that each community has certain rules in place in order to maintain equality and safety. 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.

During the whole treatment process we begin to equip people to foster good relationships. First we achieve this by reproducing a setting that is similar to a family which allows clients to develop connections with others in treatment, they begin to experience a shared sense of belonging and start to repair trust in their own families by frequent contact with their loved ones. In order to change the thoughts, accept the feelings and subsequently change the behaviour we go about empowering people. We share to these individuals the concept of the 12 step programme which is really straightforward and useful and has assisted several individuals to be cleansed and 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. Our patients are getting a grasp of living in the real world without requiring any substance to help them do it by using a fierce structure of our rehab and the atmosphere of a real residential situation; that way, we encourage them to equip themselves with fresh, positive behaviours and to achieve this by becoming a part of the society and living together with others, by cooking for themselves, by learning how to manage their cash and to be responsible, do shopping for a week and live in a community.

Every single day spent in treatment is an essential step towards success in the long run.

We also focus on supporting the family members and close friends of our clients.

This is absolutely critical so at Drug Rehab York, 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.

This lasts for 2 to 24 weeks. Most people come to Drug Rehab York with a long history of active addiction and a past filled with miserable years behind them. 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 Drug Rehab York 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.
