How to spot a drug or alcohol addiction

Some people rely on drugs or alcohol for the euphoric feelings they provide. Someone who is not yet addicted will be inconsistent with their consumption, only partaking as and when they feel like it.

Do you think that this is no longer the case and that an addiction is developing? It doesn’t take a lot for a physical and psychological dependence on drugs or alcohol to develop.

There are many classic signs of an addiction. You may have found that it is hard to reduce your drug or alcohol consumption and you are in fact abusing substances more regularly than you usually would.

You may have noticed the development of a new mental health condition, such as anxiety or depression, or a health problem has started that coincides with your increased levels of consumption.

You may have hit this point yourself already and you’ll know the feeling of hopelessness, of feeling trapped. You will likely struggle to open up to anybody and accept the fact you’ve developed an addiction. It can happen to anybody, there’s no particular kind of person who suffers from an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Dealing with an addiction by yourself is tough.

If you feel your consumption of drugs or alcohol has become a habitual behaviour, we recommend you ask for help and advice from a drug and alcohol rehab treatment centre in Livingston. Addiction Advocates are best placed to help you with immediate access to our rehab centre and with no waiting list for our treatment services.

There are local charity solutions, and of course the NHS, but the treatment that they offer is limited and their waiting lists can stretch to beyond six months as a result of devastating government cuts over the last ten years.

The treatment offered is also on an outpatient basis, which sees you receive treatment in a rehab clinic by day and you are discharged at an evening and at a weekend. This can allow you to give way to temptation on a regular basis, and many of our clients report a difficult home life because of their addiction.

A 28-day commitment to residential rehab might seem like a long time to spend away from your normal life, but our drug and alcohol treatment centres are comfortable and will allow you to focus squarely on your recovery without the distractions and stress of everyday life.


Treatment service in Livingston

Private rehab is not the cheapest solution, but our prices are fair, include all aspects of your treatment with no hidden costs and we will work with you to find a treatment programme that is best suited for your long-term recovery.

After your initial consultation over the telephone, we will admit you to our clinic and introduce you to your keyworkers. We’ll then spend some time getting to know you and give you a comprehensive assessment.

The first part of your treatment will be in our detox clinic. Detox is a difficult experience. You may have tried your own form of detox in the past. But this isn’t advisable because withdrawal symptoms, where your body reacts to being denied drugs or alcohol, can be dangerous.

If you attempt a detox by yourself, you may find yourself unable to resist your cravings and relapse very soon. This also has a profound effect on your mental health and some of our clients have spoken of feeling like failures having seen their attempt at a detox go wrong.

However, with Addiction Advocates you will have around the clock care and be supported with a medical detox if required. This will flush all toxins from your body and allow you to move on with your therapies.


Therapies in our rehab centres

You will have access to a variety of treatment options with Addiction Advocates. We will offer you a wide range of therapy. This will be on both a group basis and an individual basis.

Within these group sessions and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) we will help to treat the underlying reasons that fuel a drug and alcohol addiction and help you to envisage life without drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism.

When you complete our extensive addiction treatment, we will help you to manage your recovery post rehab with our aftercare programme. We will put you in touch with local support groups and give you all the tools you need to get through the hard 12 months after your rehab – the time when you are statistically most vulnerable to experiencing a relapse.

We understand that getting in touch and asking for help will be hard, but making that call could genuinely change your life, and the life of those around you. Every day is important when suffering from an addiction, so please don’t put it off any further.

Please call Addiction Advocates today for advice and a discussion about your drug and alcohol usage and how we can help you immediately.
