Ramot Treatment Centre for Chemical Dependency is a unique rehab centre that provides a lifeline to people with substance abuse problems, especially drug and alcohol addiction. Ramot’s rehab centre uses a holistic approach to treatment in that it doesn’t just deal with physical or psychological problems associated with addiction. Instead, it focuses on the whole body, including spirituality, diet, exercise, medical care and counselling.
Rehab programmes have an individual focus with intense one-on-one counselling sessions, but group therapy is also used to encourage self-exploration and social interaction. Spiritual counselling, which is not necessarily focused on religion, is part of the programme to help chemical dependents deal with problems that go deeper than the psychological. Professional medical care is available to help chemical dependents get through withdrawal and detox and to help with any other physical problems related to or that stem from alcohol or drug abuse.
The rehab facility is designed specifically to create a safe and secure environment to encourage healing and recovery. There is a garden for quiet contemplation, private and group counselling rooms, an immaculate dining room and comfortable recreation areas. The atmosphere is calming and soothing without the noise or clutter of everyday life.
Aside from the rehabilitation programmes that aid recovery, Ramot also provides patients with the tools necessary to avoid the pitfalls of addiction once they leave the centre. Creativity development forms part of the therapy programme to help recovering chemical dependents find healthy alternatives to drugs or alcohol. There are also weekly meetings that offer continuing support.
