What is an addiction?

This question may be difficult for people without a drug or alcohol addiction to understand. The reasons why someone engages in addictive behaviours can seem extreme or unjustifiable to non-addicts.

However, to the addict themselves, this can be very frustrating.

When addicted, it is very difficult for people to see the ways of their behaviour. It is also extremely difficult to escape the grip of addiction due to the constant cycle of temptation, triggers, and cravings.

This desire to fill these needs can be overwhelming, sometimes having serious impacts on the addicts’ psychological wellbeing, mental health, and physical state.

Addiction is classified as both a medical illness and mental health condition.

This is because this disease can have effects on almost every system in the body, including vital functioning of the heart, decision-making, and general awareness.

One of the most common symptoms of addiction is the awareness of the issue, but not possessing the ability to stop and think about their actions.

The long-term effects of addiction to drugs and alcohol are often what rehabilitation focuses on, but it is important to consider the short-term effects when considering the origins of addiction.

Addictions can start from something as simple as a dare from a friend, so contact Rehab 4 Addiction today to get advice from our experts on what your next steps could be.

Detoxification, therapy, and aftercare

Step one is detoxification. This involves removing harmful and toxic substances as a result of drug and alcohol abuse.

No doubt, this can be difficult for some recovering addicts as you may experience a range of withdrawal symptoms – both in the type of symptom and in severity.

In a specialised rehab centre, this part of the process will be fully supervised, and medical staff will be available 24/7 to provide you with anything you may need to help you – from social care to prescription medication.

The duration of this process also varies from person to person. It can take anywhere from 3 to 16 days to fully detox the body.

After detoxification, you have more time to focus on other treatments. This can include individual care as well as group therapy.

Talking about addiction as part of a group enables you to learn from others, share experiences, and grow a network of people in similar situations after being discharged.

From here, you return to life in Buntingford, loaded with helpful relapse-avoidant techniques and aftercare to aid you in your life moving forward.

The first 12 months after leaving rehab are difficult, as you no longer have access to as much around-the-clock support compared to a centre, but your time there will make you more than ready to cope with your recovery in the future.

Call Rehab 4 Addiction today to begin discussing your addiction and the help you need.

Remember, the first step is the hardest so don’t delay in contacting us with any questions or queries you may have.

How can Rehab 4 Addiction help me?

Currently, the NHS is struggling to keep up with demands for inpatient care.

Though there is a waiting list, the NHS and associated referral services are often in high demand and can fail to provide treatment to those suffering and recovering from drug and alcohol abuse.

There is a range of therapy sessions available in Buntingford, but these can often be difficult to access without referrals and still struggles to keep up with the number of those requiring help.

By calling Rehab 4 Addiction, you are giving yourself the opportunity to fully discuss your addiction with a trained specialist.

Our calls give you the chance to do this confidentially, without the need for embarrassment, shame, or a dent in your pride.

Many of our staff have been through the rehabilitation process themselves, and so have a shared experience in which to help you find the best treatments suitable for your needs.

It is often quoted that the hardest step is admitting to your problem, and this is true, which is why we strive to provide the friendliest, yet most professional services to cater to your requirements, needs, and any questions you may have.

Even if you are not seeking direct help through a specialised centre or programme, our Rehab 4 Addiction specialists are available to answer any question or talk to you about any queries you may have.

Call us today to receive more information.

Specialised drug and alcohol addiction treatment

Once the initial assessment has been completed, our staff can admit you straight away. There is no need to join a waiting list or queue for services.

A range of reasonably priced treatments can begin immediately.

Moving forward from this, there is a range of treatments programmes, rehabilitation centres, and therapies available in Buntingford and the nearby areas.

Each one will be reviewed and assessed for its relevance to you and your needs. We won’t waste your time with treatments that are guaranteed to fail.

All treatments are debated between yourself and your supervisors within the rehab centre. This means that all decisions are made in your best interest.

Rehab 4 Addiction wants to help you and we know that not every case is the same, no matter how similar they may seem.

Call us today on  0800 140 4690.
