Should I Get Professional Help?

It is important to consider whether an addiction is present. People can consume substances regularly without becoming addicted to the substance. For an addiction to be present, there are a few things to consider:

  • Do you feel like you constantly need substances?
  • Do you crave substances a lot?
  • Have you seen any changes in your behaviour or personality?
  • Can you easily go for more than 24 hours without consuming substances?

If you resonate with any of the above statements, this may mean that an addiction is present and that you need professional help to overcome it. The sooner you can combat your addiction, the sooner you can get back to the happy, healthier, sober lifestyle that you deserve.

Even if you don’t believe you have an addiction, but you still sometimes abuse drugs or alcohol, it’s important to consider why. Substance abuse can very quickly lead you down a very dangerous path. Drug and alcohol addiction is a slippery slope and can very quickly get out of control.

Reach out to your friends and family members and consider confiding in them about your addiction. Tell them how you feel and that you are considering treatment. We would also encourage you to get in touch with a member of our team as they will be able to offer you free, confidential advice about your substance abuse.

What Types of Treatments Can I Expect in Rehab?

There are many different treatment options in rehab. All good rehabs will offer a tailored treatment plan that is designed to suit your specific needs and address the things that you need to work on the most.

No two treatment plans are ever the same as every addict is different and requires different things. However, there are some common treatments in alcohol and drug rehab listed below:

  • Stress management

What Are the Risks of an Unmanaged Alcohol Withdrawal?

Many alcoholics believe that they can overcome their addiction to alcohol themselves by simply stopping drinking. However, it is very important that you are aware that alcohol withdrawal can be fatal. If your alcohol withdrawals are left unmanaged or if you don’t get professional help when detoxing, these withdrawal symptoms can quickly turn into Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS).

AWS happens when someone who usually drinks very heavily quickly stops drinking. This can cause a range of physical and psychological effects such as fatigue, anxiety, and nausea. Some of the more extreme symptoms of AWS may include things like seizures or hallucinations. Some of the withdrawal effects can be fatal.

To avoid the possibility of this happening to you, give us a call today to get the professional help that you need to move away from your alcohol addiction and move forward into a much better life for yourself.

What Therapies Are Offered in Rehab in Cheadle Hulme?

There are many different types of therapies on offer in drug and alcohol rehab. The types of therapies that you receive will depend on your treatment plan and the severity of your addiction.

Talking therapies are used in rehab treatment to help you explore your difficult thoughts and feelings in a safe place with a professional therapist. These therapies aim to get to the root cause of your addiction, guide you toward healthier coping mechanisms and establish ways to avoid relapsing in the future.

How do you deal with withdrawal symptoms?
As withdrawal symptoms range from mild to moderate, how they are dealt with greatly differs. For example, mild withdrawal symptoms typically include headaches and nausea. Many individuals find these particular symptoms somewhat easy to cope with. In contrast, moderate withdrawal symptoms include hallucinations, fever-like symptoms, paranoia, and sickness. As these withdrawal symptoms can be unpleasant, medication is often prescribed to reduce the overall effect they have. One-to-one therapy is also extremely beneficial when it comes to dealing with withdrawal symptoms.
Can I refer a friend or family member?
Yes! We have an excellent family referrals process in place. We understand how difficult it can be to go through addiction, but we must remember it’s also very challenging to watch a loved one go through such a difficult time. Click here to find out more about our family and friend referrals.
