How Are Addictions Treated?

The way in which addictions are treated at rehab entirely depends on the severity of an addiction and the ramifications it has had on an individual’s physical and psychological health.

Before commencing treatment, medical professionals at your chosen rehab will conduct an admission assessment to determine the treatment that you will require.

Although the thought of completing this assessment may seem daunting, it is vital.

Usually, addictions are treated through the employment of detoxification and rehabilitation.  Detoxification is medically induced and often lasts for around seven days.

Throughout detoxification, any harmful toxins will be eliminated from your system, enabling you to begin to recover from your addiction.

As you progress through detoxification, you will be provided with an abundance of support to ensure that you are comfortable at all times.  If you find the withdrawal symptoms and side effects of detoxification unbearable, treatment in the form of medication can be prescribed to help you cope.

Upon completing the detoxification stage of treatment, you will then move onto rehabilitation.  The treatment you encounter throughout rehabilitation will be dependent upon the psychological ramifications your addiction has had on you.

However, treatment at this stage primarily consists of a range of talking and well-being therapies.

Talking therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) will see you encouraged to address your addiction and discuss the factors that have caused your addiction to arise.  While this can be someone distressing, doing so is vital if you are to make a long-term recovery.

This is because addressing the factors that have contributed to your addiction will enable you to develop various coping strategies with your recovery team.  These coping strategies will essentially help you avoid relapsing in the future.

Although talking therapies are highly beneficial, some individuals that require rehabilitation support will find it difficult to talk about their struggles.  As a result, various well-being therapies are incorporated into the rehabilitation stage of treatment.

Offering an additional outlet, well-being therapies have become increasingly popular, especially as they can be employed well beyond rehab.

If you have found yourself simultaneously struggling with an addiction and mental health disorder, as touched on above, you will be offered dual diagnosis treatment.

Dual diagnosis treatment will see you progress through a typical drug and alcohol addiction treatment programme, while also receiving support for your mental health disorder.

This will essentially alleviate your addiction and help minimise the overall impact your mental health disorder has on your life.


Determining Whether It Is Time For You To Attend Rehab

If like many other individuals, you are unsure of whether it is time for you to attend rehab, it may be worth asking yourself the following questions.

  • Do you rely on drugs or alcohol to navigate your everyday life?
  • Do you turn to drugs or alcohol to help you mitigate any stress and pressure you feel?
  • Have you recently increased your substance consumption to feel the desired high?
  • Do you consume drugs or alcohol at various times of the day?
  • Have you tried to keep your relationship with substances a secret?
  • Have you become more prone to mood swings?
  • Have you ever experienced withdrawal symptoms?
  • Has a loved one, friend or employer approached you to discuss your relationship with drugs or alcohol?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, it is in your best interest to pick up the phone and give us a call.

It should also be noted that as your addiction escalates, your family and friends will also feel the ramifications.  This will often lead to disputes and broken relationships.

If you have noticed that your relationships with others have been damaged, it may be time for you to seek professional support.  In doing so, you can attempt to repair your relationships with others and make amends.
