Previously classified as a legal high, Spice is a synthetic cannabinoid that has emerged in the United Kingdom within the last ten years.  An artificial drug, Spice combines various chemicals that, when consumed, present side effects and euphoric sensations similar to that of drugs, including Cannabis.

Sadly, Spice consumption has regrettably led to more than a quarter of a million hospital admissions in the last few years. [1]

Although many are able to secure medical assistance and treatment when it is needed, more than 600 deaths a year have been linked to Spice use and abuse. [2]While Spice comes hand-in-hand with a plethora of life-changing side effects, these are often overlooked.

Instead, Spice users abuse the synthetic drug in a bid to relieve mental health disorders, such as anxiety and stress, and continue to defer Spice addiction treatment & rehab.

Regrettably, frequent Spice use can lead to Spice addictions. Like other drug addictions, Spice addictions can be deadly when Spice addiction treatment & rehab is not secured.

Signs and Symptoms Of Spice Addictions

Spice addictions can be difficult to identify.  However, there are many signs and symptoms that medical professionals and recovery specialists will look out for to ascertain whether a Spice addiction is impairing an individual’s life.

Signs and symptoms related to Spice addictions are typically physical and psychological. Yet, due to the very nature of Spice, many behavioural symptoms also arise and impair an individual’s control over their body and actions.

The symptoms commonly associated with Spice addictions include the following;

  • Reduced control over body movements
  • Inability to move
  • Heart palpitations
  • Increased heart rate
  • Breathing problems
  • Drowsiness
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Hallucinations
  • Paranoia
  • Extreme confusion
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

When the symptoms above come to light, they often indicate that the body and brain are unable to cope.  Although some of the symptoms alleviate naturally, many are long-lasting and highlight irreversible internal damage.

Spice Addiction Treatment

Although Spice addictions ultimately control an individual’s every waking moment, Spice addictions can successfully be overcome with the support of Spice addiction treatment & rehab.

While addiction treatment & rehab is not a simple nor a quick fix, many individuals have overcome their struggles with Spice and made a long-term recovery thanks to the professional addiction treatment that is readily available across the country. Spice Addiction Treatment & Rehab

Typically, Spice addiction treatment combines detoxification and rehabilitation. These particular treatments are highly effective when administered in rehab as they encourage the brain and body to withdraw from Spice.

Detoxification and rehabilitation also ensure that individuals progressing through Spice addiction treatment & rehab can overcome the psychological control Spice has.

Sadly, the number of people taking advantage of Spice addiction treatment & rehab remains somewhat minimal. Instead, due to stigmas associated with addictions and rehab, many attempt to recover independently.

However, doing so is extremely dangerous. This is because withdrawal symptoms come hand-in-hand with detoxification.

When those struggling with a Spice addiction attempt to withdraw from Spice alone, withdrawal symptoms, such as increased anxiety, hallucinations, nausea and persistent headaches, often lead to relapse.

Yet, when treatment is administered in a rehabilitation facility, withdrawal symptoms can be treated. In turn, those progressing through treatment find that they are able to overcome their addiction.

Treatment For Spice Addiction Must Be Obtained

Like many others, if you are struggling with a Spice addiction, you may find yourself contemplating your options regarding Spice addiction treatment & rehab. Yet, for various reasons, you may have previously deferred treatment.

Although we understand that securing treatment for a Spice addiction is difficult, and can often be daunting, treatment for a Spice addiction must be obtained.

Without treatment, long-term side effects and health complications will gradually arise. You will find your life significantly impaired, and you will sadly put your life at risk.

Attending A Rehab For Spice Addiction Treatment

Across the United Kingdom, inpatient and outpatient rehabs provide treatment for Spice addictions. Provided by both the NHS and private health care organisations, rehabilitation is crucial if an individual is to overcome their struggles with Spice.

However, securing Spice addiction is not always as easy as many perceive it to be. This is because various factors must be considered when searching for and locating a suitable rehab.

For example, the severity of a Spice addiction must be considered to determine whether inpatient or outpatient rehab is suitable. The psychological effects an individual comes to experience also needs to be taken into consideration.

In addition to the above, as inpatient and outpatient rehab comes at a cost when secured via a private rehab, an individual’s financial circumstances will be a deciding factor.

Inpatient Spice Addiction Treatment & Rehab

Favoured by many, inpatient Spice addiction treatment & rehab provides advantageous recovery results.

Should you attend an inpatient rehab for Spice addiction treatment, you can expect industry-leading treatments, state of the art facilities, around the clock care and support and a peaceful environment in which you can relax and recuperate.

Outpatient Spice Addiction Treatment & Rehab

Outpatient Spice addiction treatment & rehab is provided by the NHS and private providers.

Should attending an outpatient rehab be deemed suitable, you will undergo treatments including detoxification and one-to-one therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy.

Although we typically refer individuals to inpatient rehabs, at Addiction Advocates, we can ensure that you are able to secure outpatient Spice addiction treatment & rehabilitation if inpatient rehabilitation is not suitable for you.
