Did you know there’s often lots of misconceptions about people who go to rehab and in fact about the rehabs themselves?

“Men in white coats”, “like prison,” “non stop cleaning,” “confrontational therapy.”

For those lucky enough to have been a client at Somewhere House, they will confirm that none of these statements apply!

In fact, what awaits is a warm, safe and homely environment. An environment that is conducive to and supportive of change.

No, you can’t have your mobile phone, yes you’ll have to share a room (this is actually a lot fun and creates camaraderie and friendship, have you ever considered that?), no, in the early stages of treatment you can’t go out on your own and if you’re a smoker, there’s boundaries around that too.

But there’s oodles of learning, growth and laughter that takes place along the journey. Rehabilitation is looking at the reasons why a person uses substances or drinks and boundaries in rehabilitation are a key way to maintain structure and sobriety long term. Managing emotions and living a balanced life is also something that is learnt whilst in a setting such as Somewhere House.

Yeah it’s tough here, but the rewards are massive.

Perhaps ask yourself the question; Have I had enough and do I want to change?

If you answer yes to both of those questions, we’d love to hear from you
