Our Residential Program can be looked upon as a 4 pillar approach
1. Diagnostic Phase: Getting to know you
Right from the start, our specialist medical team will focus on YOU. We will listen to you and explore the many aspects of your health and identify any addictive behavioral patterns. We will also perform a series of blood tests to check the status of your general health such as liver function, kidney function, inflammation levels and examine any other issues that may be causing you to feel unwell. You will then undergo a bio scanning session which will give us a powerful insight into your state of health, organ strength, energy deficiencies, food intolerance and any toxins in your body. We will also examine any negative emotions you might be experiencing.
This information will give us the road map to ascertain the best treatment plan for you and address the various issues relating to both your physical and mental health. We cannot make you wholesome again until we address the various factors that are likely to be out of balance.
2. Detox Phase: Breaking the addiction habit
To get your body drug or alcohol-free, you will need to go through a medical detox program which neutralizes any cravings and withdrawal symptoms you might be experiencing while at the same time cleaning up the body and resetting the brain chemistry. Medical detox programs usually take one week.
Our medical team will ensure you have a safe experience, with minimal cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Your detox program is carried out on-site with 24-hour nursing and medical supervision. This will set you on a path towards sobriety and help to rebuild the ‘new’ you with our rehabilitation program. Once detoxed, you will feel more relaxed and no longer a slave to the cravings that once controlled your life.
3. Rehabilitation: Healing you from the inside
To successfully treat addiction, we must address the full spectrum of negative emotions that have been pent up inside. Painful trauma, buried emotions, avoidance behaviors, self-medication and a whole host of other negative habits that the addict has developed to hide the addiction such as telling lies, cheating, manipulation and denial.
You will feel safe and secure with our team and the approach we adopt at Les Mariannes is to be non-judgemental, warm and compassionate. We will offer you counselling which will help to identify any triggers and encourage you to develop healthy coping mechanisms so that you no longer feel powerless when it comes to urges and temptations.
We aim to get you to talk with us openly and comfortably and will work with you to identify any negative emotions. Together we will also work on defusing any poisons within your system. Only then will you be able to turn the page on your past and start building a new future free from addiction.
The Emotional spectrum is vast, and it can be difficult to identify the exact emotions that lie at the root of the addiction. We have developed several ways to help you identify the emotion (or set of emotions) that are wreaking havoc on your system. This is a unique approach available at Les Mariannes and based on many years of research by our founder Dr Siddick Maudarbocus.
Once the negative energy has been removed, these emotions will no longer drive your addiction. You will now be ready to rebuild your future with a fresh outlook and renewed energy. You will finally regain control over your life.
4. Holistic Wellness: Waking up the giant within you
This phase of treatment is about getting you to focus on your strengths, abilities and unique gifts. This is about shifting mindsets from ‘victim’ to ‘hero’ from ‘addict’ to ‘non-addict’.
It’s a time where you will discover the ingredients for being successful in your life and in whatever roles you might hold such as father, son, husband, boss, wife, business person and even celebrity. This is about being a winner and becoming a balanced and fulfilled individual with the gift for sharing, caring and loving.
We will work together with the ‘4 kingdom Concept TM approach’ where we share how you can become fulfilled, happy and content again by re-balancing the Body-Mind-Heart-Soul kingdoms within you. This will open you up to a life where you will become empowered and live your purpose. You will walk out into the world on a mission. At Les Mariannes, we believe that a fulfilled life is one where you wake up each morning with a purpose, a life that is not just about ‘surviving’ another day.
Our holistic wellness sessions will help to integrate your mind-body connection. Each class will get you one step closer to becoming that balanced person you were always supposed to be and experience a life where you will eventually tap into the infinite potential within you.
