Are you struggling to accept that you have a problem with drugs and alcohol? Has your consumption however increased excessively? Are friends and family commenting on your consumption? Yet, are you still struggling to admit you have a drug and alcohol addiction?
Living with denial is very common for addicts. In some cases, denial will be used as a coping strategy to blur out reality, to suppress the severity of an addiction. For others, this blurred view on life can be down to the cognitive adaptations, caused by excessive drug and alcohol consumption. In other cases, denial is used to protect loved ones, to maintain self-value, to avoid judgment.
Yet, unfortunately, no matter how denial fits into your life, it is in fact aggravating your addiction, enabling your drug and alcohol consumption and justifying your behaviours. With this in mind, it’s time to give yourself the best chance in life by acknowledging your problem, along with aiming for rehabilitation.
Here at Action Rehab, we understand that this is a big step to take. We appreciate that you may have reservations, that you may struggle to break the hold of denial. Yet, with our professional support, we can ease this time for you by showcasing the value of sober living. To help you get there, we can also refer you to the most fitting drug and alcohol rehab in Bishop Auckland, ensuring you have the best opportunity to rehabilitate.
Start today by following our below steps on overcoming addiction related denial.
How to overcome denial
Denial is a common emotion, experienced throughout addiction and mental health problems. As touched on above, it’s a coping strategy, it’s a way to adapt reality, the way that users see themselves and the way that others see them.
Here at Action Rehab, we understand why denial comes into play. We appreciate this challenging time, the worries associated with judgment, the shock of unintentionally developing a drug and alcohol addiction. Yet, by justifying denial, the addiction cycle will live on, carrying many dangers and negative associations.
To overcome an addiction, denial must therefore be diminished, especially before starting a rehab programme. To overcome denial, no matter its initial purpose, there are some steps to take, aiming to prepare you for visiting a drug and alcohol rehab in Bishop Auckland.
Start to overcome denial by firstly understanding how drugs and alcohol fit into your life, the impacts they carry and the experiences you have had. From here, opening up to loved ones, to localised support groups, to addiction counsellors will be recommended, helping you process your feelings. Searching for a suitable rehabilitation centre will be encouraged, which we can help with, familiarising yourself with rehab and its benefits, and starting to see your life without drugs and alcohol is advised.
