Symptoms of an Addiction
There’s no particular kind of person who can suffer with addiction. Whether it be a drug addiction, an alcohol addiction or a gambling addiction, this illness can strike at anyone from any walk of life.
Many people who need drug and alcohol rehab treatments have become adept at hiding their problems but there are tell-tale signs that can help you to identify if you, or a loved one, are suffering from an addiction.
- An addiction can rip through someone’s life in the space of a few weeks and does not discriminate. Addicts can lose everything in the blink of an eye. Key symptoms of someone struggling with an addiction are:- Sudden weight loss and wild variations in appetite;
– Significant changes to behaviour (e.g., someone becoming dishonest);
– Underperformance in work to the extent that someone may lose their job;
– Sudden financial issues and persistently trying to borrow money;
– Big changes to personality (suddenly becoming withdrawn and aggressive.)
Of course, this list is not exhaustive, but these are some of the most common examples we see. If this behaviour is all too familiar, then you should act now and seek professional help.
If you see these signs in a friend or loved one, then you may wish to speak to Addiction Advocates about our intervention policies.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab Abingdon
When you contact Addiction Advocates for help, we will perform an initial consultation over the telephone to establish the extent of your addiction and what kind of assistance is required. We will then make arrangements for you to be admitted to our rehab clinic in Abingdon.
At this point, we’ll perform an extensive assessment of your health and also deep dive into the cause of your addiction. There are many reasons why an addiction can develop, but a failure to treat the root cause is running a real risk of a future relapse.
private drug and alcohol rehab provided by Addiction Advocates, we’re able to put a treatment plan in place with relapse prevention in mind.
Private drug and alcohol rehab is not the cheapest solution, and alternatives are available via the NHS. But these services have a long waiting list for treatment, and when you are seen you are treated on an outpatient basis, where you are discharged from a treatment clinic for evenings and weekends.
A 28-day commitment to residential rehab might seem like an intimidating prospect initially, but this extended period of time allows you to press the restart button and recover free of the stresses that you usually associate with everyday life.
It might seem like a long time to be away from your house, or workplace, but your rehabilitation will be benefitted by you being able to concentrate on your recovery.
When you’ve been assessed by your keyworkers, you’ll be able to begin your drug rehab or alcohol rehab.
Most of our clients require a period of detoxification and that will be the first part of your treatment. This is not an easy process and you will experience withdrawal symptoms as your access to the substances you’re addicted to is tapered away.
We find this approach a more effective and comfortable way than suddenly stopping all access.
Some of these withdrawal symptoms can be unpleasant and uncomfortable and we offer a medically assisted detox. Our medical staff will be on hand with around the clock care to offer support and monitor your progress.
They are also able to provide you with prescription medication, which acts as a sedative, if required in order to alleviate the worst of your symptoms.
Detox is the most demanding part of your treatment and upon its completion you will be ready for the next step of your treatment programme.
Therapies and Aftercare
Your therapies will be split between individual and group sessions.
Individual sessions will allow you to sit with a professional and dissect the reasons behind your addiction developing.
Underlying mental health conditions are very common amongst those suffering with an addiction and if we identify you with suffering from one of these conditions, such as depression or anxiety, we’ll perform a dual diagnosis alongside addiction and treat you accordingly.
Group sessions are an opportunity to share your experience with your fellow addicts and to learn from them. As part of your aftercare, you will be encouraged to join local support groups and to continue to build a support network for when you leave our care.
After 28 days, we will sit with you and create an aftercare plan with relapse prevention at its heart.
We are only ever a phone call away and we will provide you with all the tools you need to tackle addiction head on.
We appreciate that first call asking for help is difficult, but once you’ve done that, Addiction Advocates are here for you. Please don’t put it off any further and call us today.
