Addictive behaviours can cause numerous issues, with both mental and physical health. In order to notice these in due course and act accordingly, you should be aware of symptoms. These include:

Any of the above symptoms could be linked to addiction or another mental health issue. However, it is important that these signs are broached and you calmly and rationally speak up.

How Long Do Rehab Programmes Take?

Every case of addiction is individual. This means that there are multiple types of addiction to multiple substances. There are varying levels of severity. Someone who has been addicted to a substance for six months may recover quicker than someone who has been addicted for ten years. This is because there may be other underlying issues that have manifested. There may be deeper troubles to tackle, so your rehab will be tailor-made to your specific needs.

The standard amount of time for rehabilitation is thirty days. In these thirty days, you will begin detox, psychotherapies and counselling, as well as following a dedicated aftercare plan that will allow you to maintain sobriety after you leave. During this time, you will be allowed to go out into nature, meet new people, share your story, heal from past traumas and rebuild a life that you deserve. The power is in your hands, and you will refind yourself during your stay.
