Addiction is a widespread problem in Denmark and can affect people from all walks of life. The good news is that while the number of people struggling with addictions is on the rise, more people than ever are also coming forwards to seek help for their addictions. This is likely because it is now considered normal to seek help for your addictions.

The cloud that once hung over discussions of mental health is dissipating. With this much more open attitude, people realise that they need help. They are also more easily able to learn where to get this help.

Times have been difficult. It may feel like the world is ending and that you can’t keep going without the help of drugs or alcohol.

But at Addiction Advocates, we want you to know that millions of people feel like everything is crumbling around them daily. You are not alone in how you are feeling, and you are not alone in using drugs or alcohol as a way to cope.

Substance abuse may make you feel better, but you ultimately let the problem worsen. If addiction were a bad cut, you wouldn’t just take painkillers and ignore it because the cut will get worse and eventually make you sick and potentially kill you.

Your mental health is not something that can just be numbed so that you don’t have to pay it any attention. Instead, it needs to be carefully treated so that it doesn’t have the opportunity to get worse. Just like how it stings to clean a cut, it will initially hurt to work on your mental health and addiction.

But eventually, this pain will lead you to be able to heal and achieve long-term recovery. We are here to help you do this. All you need to do is trust that we know what we are doing and get the help you find the right drug and alcohol rehab centre in Denmark.


Do I Need Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

Suppose you have never had experience with addiction before. In that case, knowing when is the right time to go to a drug and alcohol rehab centre for help can be difficult.

First of all, if you have an addiction, it is never too soon or too late to get the help you need. The sooner you start the work, the better, of course, but don’t let that discourage you from getting help. We understand that there may be a temptation to try and overcome your addiction on your own. While this instinct is understandable, being open and vulnerable is hard for many people. It is simply not possible.

For one thing, to overcome an addiction, you will need professional help in most cases. This is often in the form of your treatments and the alcohol and drug rehab centre staff who are there to keep you away from all drugs and alcohol.

Another issue is that it is simply too dangerous to try and overcome your addiction alone. You are putting yourself at risk of experiencing an overdose from stopping your usage for a bit, relapsing, and your body cannot handle the same amount of drugs or alcohol as it once could.

Also, depending on the drugs and if you are addicted to alcohol, you are putting yourself at risk of withdrawal symptoms which include:

  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Mood swings
  • Chills
  • Hot flashes
  • Goosebumps
  • Light sensitivity
  • Muscle pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Paranoia
  • Delirium
  • Dehydration
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures

If you were to experience these symptoms alone, you could very easily be putting your life in danger. Overcoming addiction requires specialised help and treatment that can only be found in a drug and alcohol rehab centre, where it is much easier and much safer to try and work towards long-term recovery.

You may be wondering if you have an addiction that needs dealing with. While a good indicator that you need help is that you are thinking about if you need help or not, there are some warning signs you can be on the lookout for.

  • Isolating yourself so you can abuse substances
  • Putting yourself in danger of drugs or alcohol
