Realising that you have a drug or alcohol addiction can be demoralising, especially if you have tried to stop consuming drugs or alcohol on a number of occasions but find yourself struggling to function without them. However, uncovering that an addiction is present will enable you to seek professional support from a rehab treatment programme.
Can I Treat My Addiction Myself?
Time and time again, we hear of people trying to treat their addiction themselves by simply not taking the substance that they have an addiction too. However, when an addiction is left unfed, the chances of experiencing withdrawal symptoms and becoming unwell are elevated.
As your body starts to withdraw from a substance, you may notice that you have increased levels of insomnia, you may be irritable, feel depressed, become extremely anxious and suffer with headaches and fatigue. This is because your body has become dependent on drugs or alcohol and the sudden change in intake levels have shocked your system and left your body needing the substance to function.
Upon experiencing withdrawal symptoms, without professional support, you are likely to relapse as you feel unable to cope with the various different feelings you encounter. If you are committed to recovering from your addiction, professional treatment is in your best interest.
What If I think My Partner Has an Addiction?
From behavioural to physical changes, you may have spotted a number of differences in your partner over the course of weeks, months or possibly even years. However, you may have previously put these down to increasing pressures at work or even at home. Your partner may even be a functioning addict, which means that it is possible that you have not observed any differences in your partner at all. If your partner is a functioning addict, a friend, employer or colleague may have noticed their addiction and expressed their concern to you.
If you suspect that your partner has a drug or alcohol addiction, we are here for you. We would strongly advise that you do not attempt to deal with an addiction on your own.
You can contact us by telephone or email to discuss any concerns you have. We will ask you a few questions that will help us to determine if an addiction is present. With this information, we can determine if an intervention is appropriate and provide a suitable drug and alcohol rehab in Redditch.
Watching your loved one suffer can have an adverse effect on your own well-being, which is why it is crucial to seek help as soon as possible.
How Are Addictions Treated?
As you enter rehab, the way in which your addiction is treated will entirely depend on your current situation. Factors including the substance you are addicted to and the length of time that you have been suffering with an addiction will all be influencing factors.
At Action Rehab, we can offer you either a detoxification or rehabilitation treatment programme at a drug and alcohol rehab in Redditch that will support you physically and psychologically. Both detoxification and rehabilitation treatment see individuals withdraw from their addiction under professional guidance, prior to completing various therapy and counselling sessions.
Addictions often come hand-in-hand with mental health issues, which is why the drug and alcohol rehab facility that you attend will provide you with psychological support, as well as physical support.
The psychological support offered will often include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This form of therapy has achieved a great amount of success in those that have faced drug or alcohol-related addictions. Through therapy, individuals will be encouraged to recognise unwanted thoughts and behaviours that may arise. In turn, they will have the ability to manage any triggers that may cause them to relapse after they have left their treatment centre.
You will also be encouraged to attend group therapy sessions during your time in rehab. These sessions will allow you to share your own personal stories and treatment journey, as well as listening to others. As you take part in group therapy, you will realise that other inpatients are at various stages in their treatment. You may take inspiration from their journey to sobriety, just like others may feel inspired by yours. This support from others that know exactly what you are going through from a physical and psychological aspect will have an increasingly positive impact on your long-term recovery.
Why Is Rehab the Best Option?
Entering rehab offers a structured rehab programme. These programmes have been devised to guarantee a long-term recovery, regardless of the addiction that is present. Substance addiction will see individuals suffer from a wealth of combined side effects that will also need treating.
When you complete a rehab programme at a rehab in Redditch, you will be assured that all aspects of your addiction are treated in one place. This avoids any conflictions in treatments that may arise if you were to visit a number of professionals for various conditions.
During your time in rehab, you will be considered an inpatient. This will see you live in the facility throughout the course of your treatment. While living away from your home may seem disheartening, to successfully progress through your drug and alcohol rehabilitation, it is recommended that you remove yourself from your usual day-to-day life. In most cases, being away from home and even work will help you to reflect on your addiction. Many fail to realise that the stress of daily life can cause addictions to become detrimental as many will seek comfort in drugs and alcohol when they are under pressure or feel that they have not lived up to a standard expected of them.
