How Do I Know If I Have an Addiction?
Addictions are often difficult to spot in oneself, especially as those with addictions will deny that they need help. However, if you think that your drug or alcohol consumption has become more frequent, here are a few questions to ask yourself if you are worried that you may be suffering with an addiction;
- – Have you recently noticed that you cannot get through the day without taking drugs or drinking alcohol?
- – Do you secretly consume drugs or alcohol?
- – Are you consuming drugs or alcohol at various times in the day?
- – Do you feel that when you drink alcohol or consume drugs that all of your worries disappear?
- – If you do not consume drugs or alcohol for a short period of time, do you feel anxious, depressed or suffer with headaches and nausea?
- – Have family members, friends or colleagues asked if you are okay, need support, or commented on your physical appearance?
- – Have you noticed changes in your appearance, such as weight loss?
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, you may well have a drug or alcohol addiction. You could even be experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
Why is it important for me to seek support?
Many people suffering with addictions will overlook support and often claim that they can easily stop drinking or taking drugs. However, this is not safe, nor is it recommended. If you are suffering from an addiction, when you stop consuming drugs or alcohol you are likely to have withdrawal symptoms.
Withdrawing can cause discomfort and leave many individuals feeling extremely unwell. As a result, the chances of relapsing or hospitalisation are somewhat higher.
Therefore, it is crucial to seek professional support, either through detoxification or rehabilitation treatment. Attending a rehab in Walsall will provide you with just that.
What Will Happen If I Go to Rehab?
If, upon referring you to a drug and alcohol rehab in Walsall, it is determined that rehab is the right treatment for you, you will fulfil a three-course treatment programme.
This treatment programme typically starts with detoxing from the substance that you are addicted to and lasts an average of seven days. Throughout this stage of treatment, you will have regular therapy sessions and a team of medical professionals will be available at the touch of a button should you feel physically or mentally unstable. As you detox, it is normal to feel overwhelmed, upset or sick. This is because the toxins that have taken over your body and mind are being eliminated and you are coming down from the ‘high’ that you have been on throughout your addiction.
Upon completing your detox treatment, you will continue to have regular therapy sessions. These are often a mixture of one-to-one and group sessions. You may feel uneasy about attending group sessions; however, they will provide you with a wealth support from others that know exactly what you are going through. Connecting with individuals that are also completing rehab treatment for their addictions will allow you to reflect on your addiction and consider what the future looks like. You will hear other people’s stories and, if you are comfortable in doing so, you will be encouraged to share your own.
What Support Will I Receive When I Leave Rehab?
