Signs and Symptoms Associated With Drug and Alcohol Addictions

If you find yourself struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, you may well have experienced several signs and symptoms that an addiction is present.

However, you may have had reason to believe that the signs and symptoms experienced resulted from generally feeling unwell, especially if you have only just come to realise that you have sadly become addicted to a substance.

Typically, the signs and symptoms associated with drug and alcohol addictions are short-lived.

However, as your addiction intensifies, the signs and symptoms experienced will indicate that your addiction is damaging your health.

While the short term side effects of drug and alcohol addictions will often diminish within 24 – 48 hours, the long term side effects of addictions can damage your health beyond repair.  Sadly, when left untreated, addictions could see you experience various long term repercussions.

Seeking Treatment For A Drug or Alcohol Addiction

As previously discussed, the number of people obtaining treatment for their drug or alcohol addiction is somewhat substandard.

At present, it is believed that only one-fifth of individuals dependent on drugs or alcohol seek treatment.

However, securing treatment for a drug and alcohol addiction is essential.  Failure to do so will regrettably cause your addiction to become much more severe and almost unbearable.

In unfortunate situations, your addiction could even cost you your life.

Although the thought of seeking support may cause you to experience emotions such as shame, guilt, sadness and even anger, you must do so.

There are many drug and alcohol rehabs in Jersey that are ready to support you in overcoming your addiction.

 

The Benefits Of Attending A Private Residential Rehab

Although many individuals often set out to obtain treatment for their addiction via the NHS, various benefits are associated with private residential rehab.

First and foremost, private drug and alcohol rehabs in Jersey can provide almost immediate support and treatment to those struggling with addictions.

Sadly, those that decide to seek treatment from the NHS will likely find themselves placed on waiting lists due to a high demand in services.

Secondly, private drug and alcohol rehabs in Jersey offer those battling addictions a safe space to overcome their addiction, reflect on the factors that have contributed to their addiction and recuperate away from their everyday lives.

Although it is not often taken into consideration, out-patient treatment can hinder an individual’s recovery.

Furthermore, attending a private drug and alcohol rehab in Jersey will ultimately offer a wealth of industry-leading treatments.

The treatment obtained upon attending a private rehab will also be entirely bespoke to your personal addiction and recovery needs.

As we can see from the above, the benefits of attending a private residential rehab are much more advantageous than seeking out-patient support.

While we appreciate that you may not like the thought of leaving your family behind or pressing pause on your typical daily routine, if you are to truly recover from your addiction doing so is essential.

You should also keep in mind that seeking treatment for your addiction is not just in your best interest, but it is also in the best interest of your loved ones.
