If you are reading these lines, it means that you wish well for yourself, because you came to a difficult conclusion – “It’s impossible to go on like this!” Perhaps you have already read the websites of many centers for the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction. It’s very difficult to make a choice – they all look good. Everyone promises a quick and full recovery.
At the international Emil Center for Detoxification and Rehabilitation in Israel we help people, who suffer from addiction, return to a healthy life, free of drugs or alcohol – work, learn, start a family and just be good, helpful, loving and supportive people. The main basis for rehabilitation is a deep, ongoing psycho-social cognitive therapy, based on effective psychotherapy methods, without the use of psychiatric drugs or drug substitutes.
We see the use of drugs or alcohol not only as a disease of addiction, but also as a destructive lifestyle, leading the addict to the loss of friends, family, health, and the basic principles of a human being.
In our therapeutic program, the patient is mostly concerned with changing that familiar and destructive lifestyle. For some patients this is a return to the healthy principles they used to have before they were addicted, and for some it is the acquisition of a whole new lifestyle, for the first time in their lives.
At the international Emil Center for Detoxification and Rehabilitation, a community was created, which strictly observes the rules of the institution – the patients’ temporary new home. These rules are a guarantee for effective treatment and for the success of this treatment. The rules are intended not only for patients, but also for the staff, and thanks to them the Center is characterized by a unique approach to work, in a fair and pleasant atmosphere, gaining mutual trust. At the end, all of these enable mutual work and progress between the patients and the staff of the Institution.
Every addict who comes to us for treatment receives help from a multi-disciplinary team, including a clinical social worker, a doctor-narcologist, psycho-educational counselors and certified therapists. Our therapeutic-educational team works as one complete unit. We, members of the Institution’s staff, do not “hold on to” any patient. One of the most important goals of rehabilitation at our Center is to answer the question: “Who am I?” We make sure to reflect on how the patient’s life looks from the side and help him to examine the different aspects of his life. He can then really understand what his present lifestyle is and why it is necessary to make a profound change from the root.
The excellent results of treatment at the international Emil Center for Detoxification and Rehabilitation prove that addiction can be cured! During the many years of work accumulated by the multi-disciplinary staff working at the Center, a great experience was acquired in the treatment and rehabilitation of people suffering from addictions. Our rehabilitation center constantly expands it’s horizons and the professional knowledge of our staff, and is the first to be updated with innovative and effective treatment methods. Graduates who have successfully completed their treatment at the Institution and are now conducting a happy life without the use of drugs or alcohol are the best living examples of this.

“Withdrawal Syndrome” is a condition that occurs when the addicted person does not receive his or her drug dose or when trying to go through detoxification from the drug he consumed – it is a set of symptoms occurring in discontinuation or dosage reduction of drugs, alcohol or some types of medications. The character and severity of the symptoms depending upon the particular drug and the daily dose. This is because each drug acts on a different physiological mechanism, and there is also an individual effect of drug withdrawal on the person who consumed it.
When the person is in a state of withdrawal, his body signals to him that he needs the drug dose. Without the drug dose, the addict’s physical condition is extremely difficult, but once he receives the drug, the negative signs and severe physical phenomena will disappear.
Many times, the appearance of the withdrawal syndrome results in an extremely difficult state of mind expressed by violence and unnatural behavior. Sometimes the addict is so desperately in need of a drug dose that he reaches a state where he performs “survival” actions to get the drug – steals, acts violently and more.
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.
