What Are The Signs of Addiction?

There are many differences and similarities between substance abuse and addiction. How exactly do you define an addiction?

Addiction is generally defined as a physical and mental dependency on a substance. What this means is, that if you can’t go for more than 24 hours without substances, you have an addiction to something.

Physically, an addiction brings on withdrawal symptoms such as headaches and tremors. Mentally, an addiction brings on increased mental health problems and feelings of anxiety and depression.

If you are wondering about some of the specific ways in which substances can affect your overall mental and physical health, below are some examples:

  • Sweating
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Changes in appetite
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Changes in weight
  • Irritability
  • Paranoia
  • Denial
  • Defensiveness
  • Lack of motivation
  • Low mood
  • Low energy
  • Poor concentration

The symptoms of addiction can have an effect on your behaviours. If you feel like you are constantly dealing with poor mental health or sickness, you will have less to give to your relationships or work. This can often result in tragic events such as unemployment and divorce. In the very worst scenarios, addictions can eventually lead to death.

With this in mind, it’s important to reach out for help as soon as possible. If you are struggling with an addiction, get in touch with us today to find out more about how you can get started with your addiction recovery programme.


What Are Rehab Treatments Like?

When you go to drug or alcohol rehab for addiction recovery, you can find out more about your addiction so that you can understand it. You will also learn how to break free from all of the thought processes that have led you into your addiction in the first place.

Rehab focuses on helping you with your physical health, emotional health, and psychological health.

Every treatment programme in a rehab is bespoke according to the needs of each client. This is because no two addictions are the same so everyone needs a specific treatment to suit their needs.

Some of the treatments and therapies that you may expect to go through in rehab can include the following:

The rehab experience is different for everyone. Your addiction treatment is likely to be different from someone else’s.

If you want to learn more about alcohol and drug rehab, treatments, and what you might expect, you should get in touch with us as soon as possible.

It’s important that you don’t delay your treatment. Give us a call today to get started with your rehab treatments.


Is There Any Support After Rehab?

When you leave the rehab centre, you will feel supported throughout the entire transition between the rehab centre and returning home.

After rehab, you will get 12 months of free aftercare. This is because the first 12 months after rehab are usually the most difficult and this is the time when you’re most likely to end up relapsing.

Aftercare is there to help prevent any chances of relapsing. You will have access to a helpline on a 24/7 basis whenever you feel like you need it. Through this, you can talk about your issues with the rehab staff and they can help to remind you why you chose to go down the path of sobriety. This can help to keep you motivated on your ongoing recovery journey. You will also continue with weekly therapy sessions to keep you on track.

Addiction recovery is an ongoing thing that you will need to work towards every day for the rest of your life.

Even people who have been in recovery for years and years can easily fall into the trap of relapse. This is why regular therapy is very important and a great preventative measure to help you stay on the right track.

In addition to the above, the aftercare team at rehab will also advise you to attend support groups in your local area. This can include 12-step programmes such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. These meetings follow a 12-step plan which helps you with admitting that you need help for addiction and follows you through towards spiritual awakening.

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Achieve Long-Term Sobriety?
Long-term sobriety can only be realised by addressing the behavioural and/or emotional issues that underpin your addiction. Psychological addiction treatment and treatment which teaches you how to express your internalised emotions means you will turn to drugs and/or alcohol less. When you figure out the primary course of your addiction, only then can you hope to keep your addiction at bay for the long term.
What is medically assisted detox?
Detox is a very dangerous process when attempted through the “cold turkey” method. Withdrawal symptoms have cost many addicts their lives in the past, so medically assisted detox provides a safer alternative. Medically assisted detoxification involves medical professionals monitoring your withdrawal side effects and prescribing you medication to control these side effects. The medication that you are prescribed will also be dependent upon what substance you are withdrawing from.
What is relapse prevention planning?
Essentially, relapse prevention planning is a method of treatment in which trained therapists prepare you for a life of sobriety post-rehab. During this planning, you will delve deeper into the triggers and reasons for your turning to drugs and alcohol. Following this, you will work towards developing mental and physical techniques which you can turn to whenever you feel that you may be at risk of using again.
