Where Can Addiction Disorders Stem From
Addiction, in any of its many forms and/or variations, can take a hold of an individual’s life as the result of a wide array of reasons.
Lifestyle factors, emotional factors, and even genetic factors can all contribute to the development of drug addiction or alcoholism.
Lifestyle factors such as early exposure to drugs and/or alcohol consumption from a young age, perhaps through family members or school friends, can often contribute to a drug and/or alcohol dependency taking a hold of a person.
There are also a lot of individuals who develop substance abuse disorders in response to traumatic events in their life — be those events from their childhood or recent memory.
Drug and/or alcohol abuse becomes a coping mechanism to deal with the internalised emotions stemming from this trauma (or general stress).
However, as you can expect, not addressing these internalised issues and suppressing them temporarily through the over-consumption of narcotics or alcohol is not a healthy way to live.
Not only can your substance misuse contribute to negative physical health, but it can only worsen your mental health/stability as well.
A lot of research has been done into the possibility of addiction stemming from genetic factors. However, due to the extent of the research needed to be done in order to provide empirical evidence proving the link between a specific gene and the development of an addictive disorder this has not yet been proven.
That being said, there is a strong suggestion of a correlation between genetics and addiction, meaning that if you have a family member who has exhibited drug and/or alcohol addiction in the past then you may be at a higher risk of also manifesting this illness.
Whatever the cause is of you developing your addiction, a portion of your psychological treatment at Action Rehab’s clinic will be devoted to pinning down the specific reason for your addiction.
This is because understanding more about your addiction’s underlying psychological issues will mean that you can address said issues and, in turn, cultivate a healthier mental state moving forward.
What Forms Of Treatment Are Available To You At Action Rehab’s Rehabilitation Centres
Residential rehabilitation has an incredibly high success rate when it comes to helping individuals with longstanding addictions overcome their illnesses.
This is not only due to the intense nature of residential rehabilitation treatment (which, by its very nature minimises your risk of relapsing throughout the duration of your treatment) but is also down to the varied approaches to addiction treatment that you’ll encounter at our rehab facility.
We specialise in administering a mixture of physical and psychological treatments to combat addictive disorders.
Throughout your journey of recovery, you will experience highly focussed treatment sessions which will hone in on the specific obstacles you are facing and provide you with the mental tools to overcome them.
As is often the standard procedure for most addiction treatment programmes, you’ll first go through a medically-assisted detoxification treatment at our detox clinic.
As the name alludes to, this treatment will see you pass through withdrawal under close supervision and medical guidance, thus lowering the risk to you during this period.
Following the initial physical treatment designed to get you physically sober, you will experience many various treatments, each of which will combat a specific part of your addiction.
One-to-one therapy: Individual psychotherapy, guided by a trained therapist, will teach you to conquer the mental hurdles which repeatedly lead you back to substance use.
The aim of treatments such as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), DBT (dialectal behavioural therapy), and dual-diagnosis therapy, will be to re-wire your brain — specifically with the aim of removing the tendency for your brain to want to return to patterns of addictive behaviour in the future.
Dual-diagnosis therapy will be primarily focused also on treating any and all underlying mental health ailments that you may be presented with, however unknowingly, while receiving your addiction treatment.
Group therapy: Group therapy sessions have long been a staple of addiction treatment, and that is because they are proven to work.
Building yourself a support network, and learning from those who are further along with the recovery journey, is an important step in cultivating a sustainable sober life.
