A drug addiction is a destructive problem in which a person typically becomes dependent on illegal and illicit substances such as heroin, cocaine, ecstasy or marijuana. It is also possible to become addicted to prescription drugs, to the point where your body is dependent on them both physically and psychologically. Whatever the substance, any kind of drug addiction can have fatal consequences and take its toll on a person’s life and health.
If you, a friend or relative is suffering from a drug addiction and require treatment, you are not alone, and you do not need to conceal your suffering. A drug addiction is difficult to overcome, but is do-able, and many people are successful in getting clean for good following treatment in rehab.
At Action Rehab, we work with clinics and well-being centres across the UK that have leading drug and addiction specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and health instructors that are waiting to hear from you so they can help you recover and live your best life.

Assessment Treatment For Drug Addiction Treatment
If you have not visited your GP or health professional before about a drug addiction, don’t worry. We can give you a free assessment if you contact us. We will discuss your drug taking behaviours, how you became addicted to drugs, the types of treatment you seek and your availability to undertake that treatment, as well as your ability to be able to afford it.
You will be able to discuss any concerns you may have with us and ask questions, which will enable you to better understand the rehabilitation and recovery process from drug addiction.
When you enter rehab, you will have a thorough medical and psychological assessment so that your chosen clinic can meet your needs and determine the severity of your drug addiction. Many clinics offer bespoke treatment, as every patient is different and may require different things from their treatment. Some may require a detox, while others may not. If applicable, you will be talked through the medically assisted detox process, what it involves and how your body may react, as well as potential withdrawal symptoms that you may experience.
What Should I Expect From Drug Addiction Treatment?
If you enter a rehab facility for drug addiction treatment, you will be surrounded by specialists and health professionals with a high level of understanding and expertise in drug addiction. Your clinic will be able to offer a variety of evidence-based techniques that are proven to work in treating drug addiction. These techniques will not only stop the compulsive feelings you have to take drugs, but will also tackle the underlying issues associated with and causes of your addiction.
It is perfectly normal to feel apprehensive and scared of entering rehab. Many private rehab clinics are like a home from home, with comfortable rooms and private en-suite facilities, on-site catering and mindfulness activities. You will be able to keep in touch with friends and family to inform them of your progress, and have regular visits, too.
Some addicts worry that they will be judged because of their addiction. If you enter a rehab facility, you will be treated with dignity and respect by the staff there, some of whom have first-hand experience of addiction. By living in the rehab facility on an in-patient basis, you can also focus solely on your treatment and recovery, without any outside distractions.
Without help, support and treatment for a drug addiction, it is important to understand that your condition could deteriorate rapidly, having a negative affect on many areas of your life including relationships with loved ones, job, finances and mental and physical health. A drug addiction without treatment can also lead to other addictions, such as alcohol addiction, and compulsive behavioural disorders. There is never a wrong time to seek help, so call us at Action Rehab today.
