When you are in the grip of an addiction you might feel like you are alone but that is certainly not the case and alcohol and drug addiction is getting ever more common.

According to one local government paper alcohol-specific mortality episodes in Greater Manchester were 50% higher than in England as a whole.

The region saw a 74% rise in drug related deaths over the past decade and the rate of hospital admissions for alcohol-specific conditions is 53% higher in Greater Manchester compared to the average for England.

You are certainly not the only person in your area going through a similar struggle and there are people out there who are not only willing but are able to help.

Attending a drug and alcohol rehab in Sale will put you in the care of trained professionals with a wealth of experience in the field of addiction recovery.

Rehab is a safe, private and judgement-free space where you will be offered evidence-based treatment and really be able to focus on your recovery.

So if you need help with addiction and substance abuse issues, call our Sale alcohol and drug rehab today to find out how we can help.

 

Do you need help with an Addiction?

Not everyone who drinks or takes drugs has an addiction but addiction can affect anyone and it can creep up slowly, gradually taking over your life.

Many people struggling with an alcohol or drug dependency will be in self-denial and might not accept the extent of the problem, or even the fact that they have one.

An intervention might be useful in this respect but at the end of the day the person with the addiction must still agree to seek help themselves.

Here are some signs that you might have an addiction to drugs or alcohol…

  • An inability to stop drinking or taking drugs
  • Increasing amounts and usage, an increased tolerance to the effects of drugs or alcohol
  • Feeling ill-effects when you don’t have access to the substance
  • Making access to drugs or alcohol a priority
  • Avoiding social and other situations where you cannot drink or use drugs
  • A social circle that revolves around drinking or drug use
  • Making excuses or denying the extent of your usage
  • Drinking or taking drugs in secret, hiding the evidence
  • Continuing to drink or take drugs despite negative consequences

This is not a complete list and the signs and symptoms can vary between individuals and depending on the substance involved and the severity of the addiction.

If any of the above do apply to you though, it may be time to seek addiction treatment, whether this is through a drugs and alcohol rehab in Sale or another type of programme.

 

Do you need to stage an Intervention?

In many cases it is not the person with the addiction who makes the first move. As already mentioned, addiction, secrecy and denial often go hand in hand.

Alcoholism and drug addiction do not just harm the person involved, however. It can be extremely difficult to watch a loved one harm themselves in this way, as well as dealing with the associated behaviours and fallout.

A staged intervention provides the chance for loved ones to show the person at the centre how their addiction and substance misuse has affected them.

It is a delicate process though and can be counter-productive if you do not properly prepare and deliver the intervention. It’s all too easy to slide into anger and recriminations, which do not help anybody at this stage.

We can offer advice to partners, family members, friends, colleagues and others who are worried that someone they care about may be in the grip of an addiction, as well as putting you in touch with professional interventionists who can help plan and lead the process.

 

Why use a Rehab UK centre?

If you do accept that you have a problem and need help, signing up for a rehabilitation programme has been shown to be one of the most effective ways of overcoming addiction.

There are many reasons for this. Unlike a community-based or outpatient programme, residential rehab centres take you away from your usual environment and all the pressures and triggers that are associated with your drinking or drug use.

This allows you to really focus on your recovery under the supervision of experienced professionals who are experts in addiction recovery. You will also have an organised programme to follow, which can be important as many addicts can struggle with motivation, organisation and time management.

This is another reason why residential rehab can be more effective than outpatient treatment, where the addict has to manage their own appointments.

Attending a rehab also allows you to undergo detoxification, or detox, in a safe and supervised manner, helping you to manage withdrawal symptoms.

This will be accompanied by a range of therapies designed to give you the knowledge and skills you need to stay clean or sober after you leave. Aftercare services can also help in the area of relapse prevention.
