What are the common side effects of drug and alcohol addiction?

Addiction is far more commonplace than many people believe, and yet there is still a degree of stigma surrounding the condition, particularly where linked to drugs and alcohol. The definition of addiction, however, is an inability to control your behaviour to the point of harm.

There is no cause for shame, as addiction can affect anyone, from any walk of life. It does not highlight a weakness in your personality, and with determination and the right help, you absolutely can recover.

The risks of leaving a drug or alcohol addiction untreated, however, is long term potential damage to both your mind and body. At the surface level, the traits of someone experiencing addiction often affect their relationships with others, ability to maintain a job and decision-making process.

After some time, however, deep and lasting psychological and physical changes can occur.

Some examples of potential physical ailments are liver damage and permanent disabilities, whilst common psychological side effects include a variety of mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression, which come with their own innate risks.

That’s why it’s so important that you reach out for help, the moment you feel as though you’ve lost control of the situation. Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we can help you regain that control.

How can Rehab 4 Addiction help me to find the right rehab programme in Chislehurst?

Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we provide an assessment and referral service, along with support and advice about your recovery options and how your addiction may affect you.

Through a short assessment, we will be able to determine the severity of your illness and therefore, what type of addiction treatment is required.

We can offer a wide range of services through our partner treatment centre, including both outpatient and residential rehab.

It’s important to note, however, that for moderate to severe addictions, residential rehab will be recommended, as it offers the optimum chance of recovery from drug or alcohol addiction at these levels.

We will consider your budget and any pre-existing medical conditions that may influence your choice of facility, as well as whether you would prefer to recover closer to home in Chislehurst or further afield. There are benefits to both options, so it will depend very much on your circumstances and preference.

What sort of treatment can I expect during rehab?

Whether you decide to stay in or around Chislehurst or not, all of our partner rehab facilities operate at a very high standard and have highly experienced medical staff available day and night to monitor your progress and help you through your recovery.

A residential rehab programme will be personalised to your specific needs, but in each case, your addiction is addressed holistically, so both the physical and psychological aspects of your addiction will be treated.

A medically assisted detox is usually used to begin your treatment, as this not only allows you to become detached from the physical dependence you have developed with the substances but provides you with a clear head to approach the psychological treatment.

Your substance use will be reduced gradually by trained medical staff in order that any withdrawal symptoms can be minimised. Where possible, they may also be able to administer medication to assist with your withdrawal.

This method of detox offers the safest possible experience and we would highly discourage that people attempt to detox independently, as there are significant health risks involved when you are not adequately monitored.

A range of modern psychological treatments that offer optimum results in the treatment of drug and alcohol addictions will be used to help you to understand your triggers and learn to control them. This could include any of the following, alongside one to one sessions with a specialist addiction treatment counsellor:

Aftercare and beyond

All programmes include at least 12 months of aftercare support, following your residential stay. This can be a benefit of recovering locally in Chislehurst, which will make attendance easier.

We can help you find the help you need today. Call us on 0800 140 4690 or complete the form on our contact page.
