Substance Abuse And Alcoholism Take A Heavy Toll On An Individual

Prior to coming to terms with the fact that you have become addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, it is likely that you will have recognised some alterations to both your physical and psychological wellbeing.

You may have simply chalked these changes up to feeling generally unwell — however, this is not the case.

Drug addiction and alcohol addiction bring about noticeable changes in a person, from the manner in which a person holds themselves and looks to the way that an individual thinks.

Those stuck in the cycle of addiction can find it difficult to notice these changes until things become extremely bad, but sometimes the long-term effects of drug abuse and/or alcohol abuse can, sadly, take a permanent toll on a person’s life.

This is why it is of the utmost importance that you delay no longer in getting professional help to break free from your addictive disorder.

It is important also that you be aware of the physical and psychological repercussions that may be having on your own life. (Furthermore, it is important to watch for these signifiers in family or friends whom you believe may have developed an unhealthy relationship with drugs and/or alcohol.

The physical repercussion of addiction can include the likes of:

  • Extreme fluctuations in an individual’s weight.
  • A stark reduction in an individual’s care for personal hygiene.
  • A sudden increase in suffering from headaches and/or nausea.
  • An unavoidable sensation of feeling tired, regardless of how much you sleep.
  • Lack of energy, even for tasks that once brought you joy.

Psychological repercussions of addiction may include the likes of:

  • A noticeable increase in feelings of anxiety and/or paranoia.
  • Sudden fluctuations in your mood.
  • A general sense of confusion, even about easy everyday tasks.
  • Heightened susceptibility to mental health illnesses.
  • Inability to focus for any prolonged period of time.


Why Is Private Rehab My Best Option?

While there are many options for addiction treatment out there, private rehab boasts the best chance of successful recovery — especially for those with very severe additions.

And, while it may cost more than certain treatment alternatives, the investment in your own health and wellbeing is one that you will not regret making.

Institutions such as the NHS may offer a host of beneficial addiction treatment options, however, you will likely be presented with a very long waiting period before you are actually found a place on a treatment programme.

During this waiting period, most individuals sadly relapse and/or find themselves disillusioned with the idea of a possible recovery.

At Addiction Advocates, we ensure that your level of commitment to achieving a strong and stable recovery is at its absolute highest for the duration of your stay within our wonderful, welcoming facility.

Also, thanks to our complimentary one-year aftercare programme, we will also help you to remain committed to the life of sobriety that you have come to attain thanks to our array of fantastic treatment options!

As alluded to earlier, the staff that we employ to manage your recovery plan will be briefed in advance of you attending our facility, which will allow them ample time to put together a treatment plan with you at the centre of it.

While each of our treatment plans is, for your paramount benefit, personally tailored, there are some treatments that are tried-and-tested and therefore are a part of most of our treatment plans.

These treatments can include the likes of grief counselling, trauma therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), art therapy, music therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), dual-diagnosis therapy, satori chair therapy, sessions based around coping with stress, relapse prevention coaching, NAD+ brain restoration therapy, and family drug support counselling.

If you think a treatment programme that keeps your best health at the centre of it is the thing for you, and if you’re ready to truly commit to overcoming substance abuse, then contact Addiction Advocates today on 0800 012 6088.
