Who Is This Program For?
When it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, it’s difficult to be objective and admit you have a problem. If substance abuse is causing negative effects in your life, it’s time to take a closer look and come to terms with the fact that you might have an addiction.
Once you can accept that, you’re already on the path to recovery.
The truth of the matter is:
If you’re questioning whether or not you need help getting sober, you likely do.
If your life and relationships are being negatively affected by your substance use, you probably have an addiction.
If you’re losing control and want to quit… but, can’t, you probably have an addiction.
If you’ve tried to quit without success, you probably have an addiction.
If you’re regularly craving and spending a lot of time searching for the substance, you probably have an addiction.
If your substance use has reached dangerous levels, you’re developing a tolerance, and suffer from withdrawals, you probably have an addiction.
The good news? Going through the treatment process will teach you to beat it. You will gain the support required to help you in the battle for years to come. Getting treatment is your best chance at a successful recovery.
How Does The Manor Born Program Work?
In order to be successful in stopping substance use or co-dependent behaviour, you must be able to maintain recovery by learning new skills.
We help you do this by teaching you how to avoid or cope with situations which make relapse more likely and also to guard against the sometimes gradual return to old addictive behaviours and substance use.
Remember we are talking about any mind altering substance or mood alerting behaviour.
Relapse can be common and you may try several times before achieving full recovery.
Following our process helps patients to work on strategies that will elicit change through exploring the conflict that arises and encourages the belief that you are capable of making positive differences in you lifestyle until permanent change is achieved.
How Long Is The Program?
The Addiction Counselling Services Program Requires A Commitment Of Four, Eight, Or Twelve Weeks.
The 4-week program is a great way to begin recovery. Most patients enter treatment feeling uncertain of how long they’ll need to stay. This program will uncover whether you should continue into a longer program or not. You’ll have time to get through any physical withdrawal symptoms you may have and you will begin establishing relapse prevention techniques.
This is also a time to define a course of treatment and aftercare moving forward. The 4-week program is easier to commit to because it’s the shortest period of time effective for rehab.
The 8-week program has the benefit of additional time and support through treatment. In this program, once you’ve had the time to detox from the substance, your therapy sessions are provided to work through any familial, behavioural or situational circumstances that may have contributed to your addictive behaviour.
The 8-week program will give you more time to successfully detox from drugs or alcohol and also begin to actively practice positive and healthy habits to help you maintain sobriety.
The 12-week program may at first seem intimidating, but the longer you seek treatment and have support, the higher chance you will have at maintaining sobriety while in recovery.
This program has the highest long-term success rate of the three.
In this program, you will go through individual therapy and self-help groups and set up an aftercare plan. You will have the time to adjust to life without drugs or alcohol. You’ll be able to strengthen your skills in resisting any temptations in the future and clearly identify any potential triggers.
This program is also recommended for those who have severe or long-term addictions.
What Does A Typical Day Look Like?
This is still a full time, intensive process.
We’ll begin each day at 10am with a group training session. This session runs for approximately two and a half hours and our maximum group size is eight people plus your counsellors.
Next, we’ll take a one-hour break for lunch before retuning for another group training session from 1:30pm until 3:30pm.
In the early afternoon, you’ll have time for individual work and, we’ll have plenty of opportunity for one-on-one work with Mim available for conversations, questions, and clarifications until 5:30pm.
Between 5:30pm and 8:30pm, you can attend a self-help group. We will help you find a suitable group available every day of the week and you can even arrange to ‘meet up’ with your fellow group members at the same one.
To finish the day, the group will join back up at 9pm for a one hour meditation with Mim.
It Won’t Get Better On Its Own.
Addictions become so ingrained that you hard wire your brain with the negative behavior. It is difficult enough to get sober after addiction and it is even more challenging to stay sober without help.
Sadly, even if you’ve kept up with your job, fulfilling your family duties and maintaining friendships while having a drug or alcohol addiction, eventually, alcohol and drug use will catch up to every high-functioning addict.
And, no one can fight this battle completely on their own.
Let Mim and the team help you create a new and better life for yourself. The Manor Born Program is an ideal way to empower yourself to make necessary changes. We’ll be here to supply the support for the decisions and life choices you will have to make in order to remain clean.
And, we’ll guide you in making decisions that will help you to develop the necessary course of action to fight the powerful attraction of addiction.
