Living with an alcohol and drug addiction can take over your life. There are many ways it negatively impacts how the body functions, how a person thinks, and there are endless consequences on your familial and social life. An addiction can prevent a person from reaching their goals. There are often money problems that arise and job prospects can dwindle.
The majority of people who live with a drug or alcohol addiction reach a moment where they want desperately to stop. Many will say they’re going to and genuinely mean it.
The problem is, the nature of addiction usually takes the ability to “just stop” away. This is where a person might fall into the trap of repeatedly saying they’re going to stop and not being able to.
This can be a very frustrating time for people with addictions, and it can be heartbreaking for the people who love them.
At this point, rehabilitation is the answer. It’s often very difficult for a person to be able to quit an addictive substance alone, especially if the addiction has lasted many years.
At Rehab 4 Addiction you can start a journey that changes the negative habits of a lifetime up to now.
In order for healing and recovery to take place, you must be ready to quit. This means being prepared to participate in conversations with therapists. It means accepting the knowledge of doctors and what they might prescribe to enable you to detox. Being ready means being open to trying new things.
You have to be prepared to do new things in order to give up old things.
Before accessing treatment, it’s important to honestly ask yourself if you really want to quit. Alcohol and drugs might be something you enjoy, but it’s essential you consider the entire impact they have on your health and life, not just the short-term effect (which in the long-term is doing mental and physical damage).
At a private clinic, people are provided a fully comprehensive treatment package for the optimum start in recovery.
To start with people who have physical dependencies will enter detox. This period can last up to 10 days. During this time, medical professionals ensure that patients receive the necessary medication to ease the symptoms of withdrawal.
Detox and withdrawal can be dangerous time. It’s essential that when a person has a physical dependency they access support from doctors so that physical symptoms are reduced as safely as possible.
When a person is substance-free, other treatments begin. Addiction takes over conscious and subconscious thought. After many years without control over this, it will take a lot of work overseen by therapists to start adapting these addictive thought processes.
CBT and dialectical behavioural therapies are available to begin to start making sense of thoughts and emotions. 12-step work and motivational interviewing supports you to make positive life-long healing.
Throughout your stay, the team of professionals will talk to you, support you and monitor you. This is to ensure your health and safety at all times. Where necessary they can communicate with close friends and family if appropriate.
At the end of a stay in rehab, people are provided with a 12-month aftercare programme so that they’re equipped to face triggers and know what to do to make continual beneficial changes.
Any point when a person is living with an addiction is right to access treatment. Even if a person feels in control of their use there are programmes that are beneficial to access. Within an outpatient service within the community, a person might attend harm reduction groups or AA/NA meetings.
Locally government-funded services provide the basics of treatment that are required to help maintain control of drinking or using drugs, or to maintain abstinence.
However, many people benefit better from a private clinic where full immersion into recovery takes place. For those who are experiencing life-long addictions or who feel the substance has totally taken over and they have no control then a private rehab in Bloxwich in the West Midlands is most likely going to be more suitable. This is especially helpful where abstinence is the goal.
When a person has problems with physical health, they go to a doctor to be treated. Mental health and addiction can feel harder to talk about, but it’s equally important. It’s essential for mental health and addiction that therapists and addiction specialists are on-hand to support the start of recovery.
