How We Work At York Located Alcohol Rehab York 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.

Many people addicted to drugs and alcohol live in a world that doesn't follow the normal rules and societal 'standards'. 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, as they go along their every day lives, they develop inappropriate tendencies which become habits eventually; for instance if they lie, they themselves actually believe it. 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. 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.

Modifying all these things is what Alcohol Rehab York is dedicated to do. 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, Alcohol Rehab York is able to offer a medically assisted withdrawal.


When a person's body is finally free of the substance they have been abusing, we can then begin to focus on helping the spirit and mind through the primary, secondary and day-care rehabilitation treatments we offer.

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 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 give our clients optimism - we show them that they too can get better when they see that our Counsellor used to be addicted, but is now 13 years sober and free.

We start to empower people throughout the treatment process to build positive relationships. The first thing we do is create surroundings to reflect belonging to a family; patients develop a sense of fellowship and they begin creating relationships with each other, as well as recreating trust in their real family relations through constant communication with their loved ones. We also carry out encouraging individuals to alter their views, acknowledge their emotions and consequently modify how they conduct themselves. 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 motivate individuals when they need to be seeing something but aren't while giving them room to make mistakes that they learn from. 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.

Each day spent in treatment is another step towards succeeding in the long run.

We as well endeavour to assist the client's immediate family and intimate colleagues.

It is very important because these people are the ones who will have to live with the clients once they are done with treatment which means Alcohol Rehab York gives loved ones an opportunity to interact with other people who have faced similar issues and learn how they can best offer support to the client post treatment.

This all takes place over the course of 2 to 24 weeks. Most people come to Alcohol Rehab York with a long history of active addiction and a past filled with miserable years behind them. Basically it can require a lot of time to untwist the disorder of the person's life caused by addiction, therefore if people have more time to embrace their brand new way of living, their results in the long run will be more positive. 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 York Housing, moving and re-housing.

However long someone is with us, our purpose is to provide them with a solid foundation for a life in recovery, a new start.
