What are the signs of addiction?
There are many negative stereotypes of drug and alcohol addiction that circulate society. For instance, that to be an addict you will be homeless, bankrupt and a social recluse, but this cannot be further from the truth. Whilst there are sometimes the cases where these instances arise alongside addiction, addiction can happen to anyone.
It can be a problem that is covered up and can be used to help cope with stress from work, the family, or mental health issues. What you need to remember is that addiction is an illness and without proper professional help chances of recovery and long term sobriety are extremely slim.
Addiction is defined as not having control over something you are doing, to the point where it becomes harmful. When you are reliant on a substance or repetitive behaviour to achieve a high, or good feeling, this is often an addiction forming. With substances such as drugs and alcohol, they also contain chemicals that can also emphasise this addictive behaviour.
Signs of alcohol addiction may vary slightly to that of drug addiction. For alcohol addiction, you may find that you need to drink much more in order to feel drunk, you are losing interest in life around you, you become more aggressive and start to prioritise alcohol above anything else.
With drug addiction you may find that you have more frequent mood swings, you are neglecting your appearance, you cannot sleep well anymore, you are socially isolating yourself and you become increasingly irritable.
If you’re concerned that you are suffering with addiction, our friendly and supportive team can help answer some of your questions and determine the best course of treatment.
The best rehab in Crewe
At Action Rehab, we provide drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe and across the whole of the UK. We have a vast amount of resources at our disposal to be able to find you the right treatment program to suit your requirements.
Although we do offer outpatient treatment services, we usually recommend residential rehab centres, as it can be helpful to eliminate all negative environments for successful rehabilitation.
We will work with you to design a treatment program that helps you overcome your addiction and equips you with the tools you need to remain sober. All of our treatment programmes include both detox and therapy.
It all starts with an initial phone assessment to determine the length and severity of your addiction. From there we can advise the best course of action and either organise an admission date to a rehab centre in Crewe, or a start date for your outpatient treatment services.
Once you have settled into your rehab centre in Crewe, you will start your detox. Detox is probably the most dangerous aspect of rehabilitation and should only ever be conducted under medical supervision. During detox you will experience withdrawal symptoms, which make detox quite dangerous, especially if conducted on your own at home. These withdrawal symptoms will vary depending on the length and severity of your addiction.
Working with our medical professionals you will agree a detox schedule which will work to reduce the levels of substance consumption until you are free from the substance completely. This process must be undertaken at a slow and safe pace to allow your body time to adjust between each stage. This will help with the withdrawal symptoms.
Addiction is an issue that effects both your physical and psychological self, which is why all treatment programmes will include therapy. The therapy you are prescribed during your rehab in Crewe, will be determined by your addiction and life history.
There are a few different types of therapy that will be available and you will receive one or more, depending on what suits you. Cognitive behavioural therapy, individual therapy and group therapy are the main three types of therapy on offer. Sometimes, you may also have access to motivational classes as well.
Once you have completed your rehab in Crewe, we will work with you to ensure your long term recovery is maintained.
Upon successful completion of your treatment program, a relapse prevention plan is agreed with you before you leave the rehabilitation centre.
Our Action Rehab team will also provide you with links to local support groups, alcoholics anonymous meetings and further therapy if these services are required by you.
Reaching this stage is a great achievement and hopefully the next step to achieving long term sobriety at home, but our team are always on hand if you require any further support or advise along the way.
