How can our Drug Rehab help you?
Before you even join our rehabilitation centre, you must first overcome one of the most challenging steps for some people – admitting that you have an addiction.
Many people who suffer from a drug or alcohol addiction struggle to acknowledge their substance abuse and are in denial about their condition.
It’s natural to try to downplay your symptoms or hide your drug or alcohol addiction from your loved ones for fear of feeling embarrassed or ashamed. There are still people out there who don’t believe that drug or alcohol addiction is a disease which can happen to anyone, from any walk of life.
This is part of the reason why there’s still a stigma attached to addiction, making it even harder to acknowledge that you need professional support.
If you’re able to make to admit it to yourself and to our admissions team, you’ll have made a very brave step towards allowing us to help you recover from substance abuse.
If you’re still feeling disappointed in yourself or as though you’re weak because of your alcohol or drug addiction, it may help you to know that addiction has long been proven to be a brain disorder where some people are more susceptible to addictive behaviours because of genetics, their environment, or a traumatic event.
Our team of addiction specialists can help you to identify the cause of your substance abuse by taking the time to get to know you and understanding the nature of your addiction.
Once we’ve assessed your physical and mental health whilst getting to know you, we can then design an effective rehab treatment which is specific to your needs.
Typically, we’ll begin your rehab treatment with a drug or alcohol detoxification where your intake of the substance is gradually reduced in a safe and controlled setting such as our rehab in Welwyn Garden City.
Our team will supervise you 24/7, ensuring you’re mentally and physically safe whilst successfully progressing through your detoxification.
It’s likely that you’ll encounter withdrawal symptoms during your detox which vary between each person depending on the severity of each alcohol or drug addiction.
Most people experience mild withdrawal symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, headaches, but it’s also possible to suffer from severe withdrawal symptoms such as delirium tremens (the DT’s), seizures or insomnia, thus highlighting the importance of having medical professionals by your side throughout detoxification.
How do you know if you’re addicted to Drugs and Alcohol?
It can sometimes be difficult to differentiate between a dependency on alcohol or drugs and an alcohol or drug addiction.
In most cases, an addiction begins as a physical dependency on the substance where you’re craving your next fix.
When you begin to consume alcohol or drugs on a daily basis and are unable to focus on anything else, you’ll likely have developed a psychological addiction to the substance in addition to a physical addiction.
You might be able to recognise the damage you’re doing to your body and mind but still be unable to stop; if you get to this point, it’s critical that you seek help immediately.
If you’re concerned that a loved one could be suffering in silence from an addiction but aren’t entirely sure, there are a few common signs that could indicate their drug or alcohol addiction which include:
- – They’ve become involved with new friends or a new circle of people who encourage substance abuse, making it appear as though it’s the norm.
- – They’re involved in increasingly risky behaviours which is out of character for them.
- – They’re struggling financially all of a sudden which could be a result of funding an expensive habit such as a drug or alcohol addiction.
- – They’re showing unusual behaviours such as a lack of interest in socialising or participating in activities which they once enjoyed.
- – Whilst it can be quite difficult to tell if a person if suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs by simply looking at them, there are some small changes you may notice such as a significant change in their weight, skin sores, a gaunt facial appearance, or bloodshot eyes.
If you’ve noticed any of the above in a friend or family member, or yourself, then we can’t stress enough the importance of taking the courageous step towards improving your life by removing drugs and alcohol for good.
