An individual’s physical condition is closely connected to and impacts upon other important areas of their well-being. The Acquiesce programme addresses the physical element through the education and practice of smart health habits. Nutritional education will be provided. There will be workshops focusing on the importance of healthy sleep patterns and providing essential sleep hygiene practices. Individuals will engage in regular and varied physical activities and exercise to suit all abilities with periods of rest and relaxation being paramount. There will also be an emphasis upon individuals to take responsibility for secondary illnesses and support provided to do so.
In nurturing and improving physical wellness this will both aid and complement further components of the Acquiesce programme and help to provide the energy required for the recovery journey.
At Acquiesce we offer a range of family support this includes, family psychoeducation, family visits and update calls to your loved ones. Evidence shows that inlcluding family as part of an individual’s treatment programme can be an important factor in the effectiveness and success of their treatment. Family support can have many benefits. It aims to provide all concerned with a greater understanding of addiction and recovery. This helps to demystify any confusion and offer clarity of a family members role and limitations within the process. It provides a recognition of current responses and provides alternatives and often more productive ways to manage issues.If your loved one is not yet ready to address their issues of addiction you can still access support from our Family Therapy Programme.
