The drug rehab or alcohol rehab or prescription drug rehab process at the Emil Center Clinic is provided to patients in a residential setting and on a full board basis. The atmosphere at the institute is rural and pastoral (as opposed to a hospital atmosphere, for example). These conditions are specifically created to facilitate and support the patient in the therapeutic and rehabilitative process, as much as possible.
What does the Residential Program include?
When we say “Residential” rehabilitation, we mean that the patient is with us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Patients reside at our Clinic for the duration of their treatment program, which may be short-term (30 days) or long-term (up to 6 months). During the rehabilitation process at our clinic, patients are given the opportunity to go on home visits according to the recommendations of the professional staff.
An addict who is admitted to the institute receives all the support and treatment needed to undergo a highly effective process, including tests by a doctor-narcologist, close supervision of the detoxification and rehabilitation process and withdrawal syndrome, psychological-clinical therapy, treatment groups, individual therapy, psycho-drama, Yoga Therapy and close social worker guidance that takes care of all patients’ needs outside and within the therapeutic setting. Physical rehabilitation includes 3 full and nutritious meals a day, rich in vitamins and minerals essential for body rehabilitation, sleeping in spacious, comfortable rooms equipped with air conditioning, a library, a TV room, a games room, the sea and more.
The residential conditions at our Clinic are quite high, with large rooms that can accommodate 2-3 people. All the buildings and rooms are equipped with modern furniture, a central air conditioning system, and everything needed to give the patient a warm and homely feel. The Clinic provides a healthy diet, consisting of three fresh meals a day, containing high nutritional values, and free access to seasonal fruits throughout the day. Healthy nutrition is an important part of the addict’s rehabilitation process and his body’s recovery from addiction damage. We believe that everyone who comes to us for treatment should receive the best, not only in terms of the content of the treatment, but also in terms of residence.
The benefits of rehabilitation in full residential conditions
The most significant benefit of rehabilitation in full residential conditions for addicts is actually that there is a constant watch around the clock and an immediate response to their needs, both medical and mental. It is important to understand that when a patient who is detoxed off drugs, alcohol, prescription drugs or any other addictive substance, he or she suffers from severe physical withdrawal syndrome. Handling and responding to this must be professional, prompt and effective. The patient is actually in a supportive treatment environment with other patients, in a similar situation to his own, who are with him at the clinic, but more significantly, is the professional response available to him at all hours.
Another important benefit is basically the lack of access to drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs. The residential program at the Emil Center detox and rehab Clinic completely negates any access to any addictive substances. There is also a sporadic drug and alcohol testing on a regular basis. The cessation of drug use must be absolute, without any use or gradual reduction of the substance.
It is also important to note that when the addict is in a closed therapeutic setting, it is a very significant relief for his family, the need for worry around the clock disappears: Where is he at the moment? Is he in danger? What will happen to him at home? How will the detox go? etc.
At the rehab Clinic, we also have a solution for the families of addicts. Supporting the addict’s family, and teaching them how to manage better, will make it easier to cope with the disease and ways to treat it.
