What is Drug and Alcohol Addiction?

Addiction is defined as a neurological disorder where individuals have a powerful and persistent urge to engage in certain behaviours despite the negative consequences it might have on their life, health and finances. When we talk about drug and alcohol addiction, it typically begins because the substances alter the brain’s activity – resulting in feelings of relaxation and euphoria. In some instances, the brain may want to replicate these feelings again, which is why some people have urges to use particular substances repeatedly.

As individuals take more of these substances, their bodies will actually require higher levels of the drug and alcohol in order to achieve the desired effect. Over time, they may struggle to function without the substance and experience cravings and side effects. This is what’s called dependence and tolerance.

Other common signs of an addiction include:

  • Wanting to stop but not being able to
  • Continuing to use it despite pleas from family and friends
  • Engaging in risky and deceitful behaviours to obtain the substance
  • Using the substance without a prescription or at a higher dose than recommended

Addiction is a serious condition that can soon take its toll on various aspects of life – whether you’re the person struggling with the addiction or a family member or friend who doesn’t know what to do. At Addiction Advocates, we’re here to help everyone affected by addiction.

Rehab Treatments Available

The UK is home to many leading rehab centres. While they all focus on mitigating both physical and psychological symptoms of addiction, they each use different approaches and therapy. For this reason, it’s important to do your own research into drug and alcohol rehab clinics to find the one most suitable for you. That’s exactly where our team comes in.

One of the first things you must do when you arrive at rehab is complete alcohol and drug detox. This is when you have stopped using the substance, and all the chemicals begin to leave your body. Many people suffer from withdrawal symptoms during this period, and the severity ranges from person to person. Some common side effects include cold and flu-like symptoms, muscle pain, stomach concerns, and sickness. These side effects make completing a detox at home, on your own, very difficult. But, when you’re in rehab, doctors, nurses and mental health specialists will be on hand to monitor you and prescribe medication.

After about seven days, your drug and alcohol detox should be complete. It’s then time to begin therapy and treatment. Typically, this will include a range of counselling, behavioural therapy and talking therapy in group and individual settings. A combination of therapy and settings will allow you to learn from others while getting to the root cause of your addiction and identifying any triggers.

When you’re not participating in therapy, many rehab clinics put on holistic well-being and nutrition sessions. This is to help you create healthier lifestyle choices and propel you with the skills you’ll need in the outside world. Family therapy is not uncommon to be part of the programme. In these sessions, your loved ones would be invited to a group meeting to discuss their feelings. It’s also a great way to outline how they can support you in the future.

Many people are concerned about their time at rehab coming to an end. That’s completely normal but just know that you will be ready to leave. Sessions on aftercare and relapse prevention will ensure you have everything you need, and you’ll be given a point of contact too. Moreover, many of our rehab clinics work with community initiatives so you’ll have all the details of local support groups.

Once you choose Addiction Advocates, you’ll never be alone in your recovery journey. Our 24/7 helpline is completely free and always open, so we’re here whether you have a question, need some help, or just want someone to listen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can family members visit me during rehab?
A family intervention is often the first step in a person’s recovery, as the addict themselves will often be in denial about the existence or extent of their problem. Once they are in rehab though, they are already committed to their own recovery. The presence of family members can be beneficial and some sort of family therapy can be useful, but this will depend from one case to the next and visits will generally need to be approved first by therapists and other addiction recovery specialists at the rehab centre.
Can I refer a family member for treatment?
Yes, you certainly can. Here at Addiction Advocates, we welcome family referrals from concerned family members. If you believe that a loved one is struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, contacting our 24/7 helpline will help you take the first step in referring a family member for treatment. Although some addicts will accept support when it is offered to them, if your loved one has previously rejected any help provided to them, staging an intervention may be necessary. A last resort for many, interventions see family members meet with the individual in question and a member of our team to ensure that treatment is accepted and secured.
How Long Does It Take To Complete Rehab?
When you attend rehab, your progress will be monitored by a team of medical professionals and recovery support workers who will approach you to discuss leaving rehab when they believe that the time is right. As many factors will contribute to the progress made during rehab, it is difficult to ascertain how long it takes to complete rehab. However, many complete rehab treatment within as little as 28 days.
