Have you been suffering from substance abuse or alcohol dependency? Addiction, in all of its torturous forms and guises, can be an immensely difficult thing to face app to and/or admit to; and, as such, it isn’t unusual for people suffering from an addiction to therefore experience strong feelings of guilt, denial, and even shame.
However, when it comes down to it, addiction is a disease like any other, and there is no shame in admitting that you have fallen victim to it.
Substance abuse disorders and alcohol abuse disorders are incredibly complex conditions that can wreak havoc on your brain chemistry, and cause you to present with a whole host of physical and psychological side-effects — some of which can negatively affect you for the long term if not treated professionally.
With this in mind, you should be aware that it is vitally important that you treat your addiction as soon as possible with the help of a private residential drug and alcohol rehab in Kirkby.
Over time, even if you think that you have your addiction under control, your substance abuse and/or alcoholism will grow more severe, with the effects of addiction seeping their way into ever more areas of your life.
If you are ready to put an end to your addiction, then you need to reach out to Addiction Advocates’ drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre today on 0800 012 6088.
We can also help a struggling loved one or family member get help overcoming addiction through a family and friend referral if necessary. Our teams of staff are highly trained in helping those struggling with addiction and can get your loved ones the help they need right away.
Drug And Alcohol Abuse Can Wreak A Multitude Of Effects On A Person
Alcoholism and substance misuse, if left untreated, can take a potentially disastrous toll on an individual’s life. Some of the severe physical conditions that drug and alcohol addiction can result in include the likes of heart complications, blood pressure issues, liver failure, as well as multiple different cancers having been linked to the overconsumption of alcohol and/or narcotics.
Furthermore, it is not only your physical body that will wreak the repercussions of your addiction, but your mental health can take a nosedive as well. You may find that you start experiencing bouts of depression, lethargy, anxiety, insomnia, or much more as a result of your addiction.
These psychological conditions combined with the physical conditions can not only lead your body and mind into ruin, but you can also lose your job, face economic instability, and end up homeless as a result.
However, as so many addicts forget, addiction not only affects the individual. As addiction progresses, an addict may often alienate themselves from their loved ones, and even turn to steal from or lash out violently against those who they previously loved — be them family members, children, or close friends.
To say that drug and alcohol addiction is a slippery slope is something of an understatement; although, it is not too late to turn your life around.
No matter how far your worry that your addiction may have progressed, Addiction Advocates will be able to help you out of this period of your life and quickly get you on the way to long-term recovery from your addiction.
We are committed to making sure that we can provide help to anyone who reaches out to us.
Drug And/Or Alcohol Detoxification
For the majority of people, treatment at our drug and alcohol services begins with a course of treatment at our detox clinic. While the remnants of your substance abuse are still lingering in your system, it is impossible for us to address the root causes of your addiction.
Therefore, it is necessary to flush the negative substances from your system carefully and steadily, in order to help your body adjust to the new state of sobriety.
Alcohol withdrawal and substance abuse withdrawal can be painful, this is sadly no secret. However, with the medical staff y your side 24/7 at our detox clinic, our team will be able to medically manage any painful side effects as you transition into a state of sobriety.
This is not a process that anyone should attempt alone and we strongly recommend that you do not try to go cold turkey prior to arriving at our facility, let our detox clinic do its job and help you through this period.
Physical And Psychological Treatments
Once you’re physiologically free of the substances to which you have previously been addicted, the work of addressing the root psychological cause of your drug and/or alcohol addiction can begin.
This is one of the most important steps on the road to recovery as it will inform how we help you to start foreign a life post-addiction.
In order to achieve this, we will administer a bend of treatments such as: CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), one-to-one therapy, NAD+ therapy, low-level laser therapy, Satori Chair therapy sessions, stress management classes, dual-diagnosis treatment (for any simultaneous mental health conditions that you may also be struggling with), art therapy, family drug support coaching, and much more.
Relapse prevention will also play a big part in your treatment at Addiction Advocates’ drug and alcohol treatment facilities, as this involves manifesting positive coping mechanisms to daily stressors and triggers that would previously have pushed you to drugs and/or alcohol.
