Rehab 4 Addiction

It can be difficult to understand the difference between misuse of substances and a highly developed addiction to drugs and alcohol. The difference between them can be very subtle, which is where the difficulty lies.

However, both can have a negative impact on the user’s life, and it is important to understand exactly how their lives can be impacted. It’s also important to know when the right time to reach out for some form of professional help might be.

If you are someone who is currently suffering the negative side effects of substance abuse or a severe drug and alcohol addiction, and you wish to turn your life around, now is the time to rehabilitate. After all, the sooner you seek help for your addiction, the sooner you can begin your recovery journey.

Feel free to contact our team at any time so that we may begin discussing the most appropriate drug and alcohol addiction treatment programme for you.

Overcoming addictive behaviours

There are many options available to you when it comes to taking control of your drug and alcohol addiction in hopes of one day overcoming it, depending on the severity of it.

Many of which will focus heavily on your addictive behaviours and any underlying mental health issues. However, before any of this happens, the best thing you can do is to find the right support and addiction treatment for you.

For some, only minimal side effects may be experienced. This could mean that your support may come from free NHS addiction services or various outpatient treatments in the Bridgwater or wider Somerset region. Both of these options have been known to result in success for many former clients living with a drug and alcohol addiction. However, they are not always suitable for everybody.

If you believe you are suffering from moderate to severe substance abuse, then sitting on a waiting list while you continue to fuel your addiction will probably end in undesirable results. When this is the case, the best route for you to take would be through residential treatment at a drug and alcohol rehab centre in Bridgwater.

Residential rehab treatments offer their clients a more focused approach to their addiction and will aim to completely sever their physical and psychological dependency on drugs and alcohol.

It is very important to note that once your substance abuse graduates to a stage of severe addiction, a deep mental connection will likely be formed. This is where life-changing impacts begin to affect a user’s life negatively, making the goal of recovery even more difficult to reach.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, the best piece of advice we can give you is to reach out for help and support, whether it be to a professional, a loved one, or just someone you trust in general.

Many people often attempt to curb their addiction alone, however, this can be incredibly dangerous to both your mental and physical wellbeing and more often than not results in further substance abuse.

Give yourself the best possible opportunity to change your life for the better, and increase your chances of achieving a sustainable recovery status in the long term by reaching out for help and support as soon as possible.

Leading treatment addictions and rehabilitation

Whichever treatment option you decide is best for you and your circumstances, we guarantee that through our partnering rehab centres you’ll always experience leading addiction and recovery techniques.

If you’re suffering from a drug and alcohol addiction, one of the initial steps you’ll need to take comes in the form of the detoxification process. This helps clients to kickstart their sustainable recovery journey by fully purging the body of toxic substances and helps to motivate them to pursue recovery further.

It may not be the most pleasant experience, and for some may be the most difficult part of addiction treatment programs, but without this step, your chance of recovery decreases massively.

Once this step is completed, a greater course of treatment begins, which aims to work on and understand your heavily embedded psychological connection to drugs and alcohol. This will involve a mixture of treatments focused on medical, social, and psychological techniques.

The most commonly recommended treatments include:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Support groups
  • Motivational therapy
  • Individual counselling sessions.

Recovery techniques will also be provided along with the above therapies. These will help to promote healthy coping mechanisms in order to support your eventual transition back into the real world.

This treatment approach aims to ensure that clients are given every opportunity to recover while also helping them maintain their sobriety post-rehab. Once the intensive rehabilitation programme has been completed fully, you shall also be offered aftercare support to enable you to boost your recovery potential.

The signs of a drug and alcohol addiction

Whether you’re currently aware of it or not, if you’ve been abusing drugs and alcohol for a while, there’s a very high chance that you have developed a drug and alcohol addiction.

But is your rate and level of consumption actually hazardous? If you’re unsure, there are common signs for you to look out for and consider.

Ask yourself:

  • Am I struggling to maintain personal relationships?
  • Am I struggling to maintain the professional aspects of my life?
  • Has my mental health been negatively impacted?
  • Do I depend on drugs and alcohol to get through the day?
  • Do I suffer withdrawal symptoms when I don’t consume drugs or alcohol for a certain period of time?
  • Am I often thinking about the next time I can consume drugs and alcohol?
  • Has my tolerance to drugs and alcohol increased due to consumption?

If your answer to any of the above questions was “yes”, then it is highly likely that you are currently suffering from an addiction to drugs and alcohol. Your life is already beginning to be negatively impacted by your substance abuse, and without help, may continue to develop further under the surface.

In order to take control of your addiction before it becomes any worse, we recommend seeking professional help and support immediately.
