Drug or alcohol addiction
What defines addiction? How does an addiction begin? To those who aren’t suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction, it is particularly hard to understand why someone will continue to abuse drugs and alcohol that cause them harm and potentially ruins lives. When an addiction sinks its teeth into someone, reason and logic no longer exist and are replaced by cravings and overwhelming urges. These feelings must be satiated at any cost which is why some addicts find themselves turning to a life of crime or stealing from loved ones in order to feed this habit.
Addiction is both a medical illness and a very complicated mental health condition. The vicious circle of urges and cravings leaves an addict fragile and very vulnerable. One of the biggest symptoms of addiction is an addict knowing what substance abuse is doing to them, but still not being able to stop themselves from wanting more and more.
An addiction can easily begin when continued drug or alcohol consumption, bad timing and mental health issues all combine. The long-term impacts can be absolutely devastating – both for the addicts and those close to them.
A short lived high from drugs or alcohol can quickly snowball into something altogether worse and an addiction can set in very quickly. Drug and alcohol addictions can be caused by something as minor as a dare from a friend to try something once or something much more profound such as trying to mask the pain of a personal issue by smothering it with drugs or alcohol.
How Action Rehab can help
The NHS is under enormous strain currently and as such, inpatient treatment is very difficult to obtain. Unfortunately, local treatment services do struggle to keep up with the demand from people looking to recover from a drug or alcohol addiction. There are always group therapy meetings taking place in Kettering but this is rarely enough to help people to recover from their addiction.
At Action Rehab, we offer a wide range of treatment programmes for anyone who is ready to face their illness. And facing up to your addiction is often the hardest part of overcoming it. The hardest thing to do is to admit to someone that you have a problem and acceptance is most certainly the first step.
You may have angrily reacted to concerned friends or family urging you to get help in the past but once you are prepared to admit your addiction, we can begin to help you. By calling us, you will be able to discuss your drug or alcohol addiction over the phone with one of our addiction specialists. You may feel a sense of embarrassment or feel ashamed or humiliated. There’s no need to be. You will not be judged and many of our staff are themselves recovering addicts. They understand your pain and your feelings and will do everything they can to help you.
Our drug and alcohol rehab clinic Kettering is a top class facility and you can be assured Action Rehab understand addiction illnesses better than anybody else.
Your drug and alcohol addiction treatment
After we perform an initial assessment on the telephone, we’ll be able to admit you immediately. There’s no wait for our services and our reasonably priced treatment can begin straight away. When you come into our care, we request a 28-day commitment to our residential rehab so we can get to know you and treat the root cause of your addiction.
All of our treatment programmes are created with your long-term recovery in mind and upon check in to our rehab clinic in Kettering, we will perform a thorough physical and psychological assessment. This will allow us to determine how your drug or alcohol addiction has affected you and gain an insight as to what has caused it. At this point, we draw up a comprehensive treatment programme based around you as an individual. All the treatment you undergo with Action Rehab will be completely tailored around what would benefit you based on your preferences.
Detox, therapy and secondary care
The first course of action will be to remove all toxins from your body which are there as a consequence of drug or alcohol abuse. This takes place by the difficult process of a detox. There is no disguising that this is a tough part of the treatment and you will experience withdrawal symptoms of varying severity. Our caring medical staff will be on hand to issue you with prescription medication where needed to help you get through these tough days. Depending on the severity of your drug or alcohol addiction, you may need as little as 3 or 4 days to as many as 16 days.
Once your detox has been completed, you’ll be able to focus on the rest of your treatment. You’ll undergo individual and group therapy which will focus on your mental healing and allow you to share experiences and coping strategies with fellow recovering addicts. This network will help you when you leave our care.
You will return to your life in Kettering with a healed body and mind. We’ll provide you with an aftercare plan for when you return to your normal life. You are at the most risk of a relapse in the 12 months immediately following your rehab and our free secondary care plan will be there to help you.
Please don’t delay calling us – the sooner you let us know, the sooner we can help you to free yourself of drug and alcohol addiction.
