How to begin your recovery in Esher – the physical

A physical dependency on alcohol or drugs means the body has reached a state of physically needing the substance to survive.

When the next drink or fix is the only thing you can think about because you’re concerned about how you’ll cope with it, a dependency could have developed. When the time has passed without drinking or taking drugs and there are physical effects on the body, for instance, shaking, pain, or nausea, then physical dependency exists.

The symptoms of withdrawal are very uncomfortable for many people. This is often the moment when people drink or take drugs again.

Trying to quit a substance when in this state can be dangerous if a person does this alone at home. By staying at a drug and alcohol rehab in Esher medication is used to support you through the physical symptoms of withdrawal. Your safety is prioritised and professionals are on-hand to ensure the safest detox.

The physical detox part of treatment takes place at the start of a rehab stay and lasts up to ten days.

The psychological part of your recovery at rehab

The brain changes when a person has struggled with addiction for any length of time. To begin with the chemicals in the brain have been affected. The natural “happy” chemicals are reduced and there are many toxic chemicals affecting how the brain works.

The neurological pathways are changed by the repeated behaviours of addiction. This is why psychological treatments facilitated by expert and compassionate professionals are essential to your recovery.

Through specialist therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, you begin the process of psychologically treating the brain. This is crucial in supporting the brain to recover.

With ongoing work in this area, you start to monitor and have control of your thoughts and cravings and this affects your behaviours. This is another area you can make huge changes in that will positively change your life.

It’s also common for people who have addictions to be affected by other mental health issues, such as anxiety, trauma, and psychosis. With a team of professionals to hand, you have the safest way to cope with presenting symptoms in these areas as well.

The emotional aspect of your recovery

Humans are creatures of emotion. Drink and drugs are often taken to mask feelings. When attending a rehab centre the emotional aspect of the addiction must be treated too.

Emotional recovery is facilitated through various talking therapies as well as 12 step work. Holistic activities such as art and music therapy are also a method used that can be really helpful to people who might need an alternative way to open up. However, being open to all therapies is essential to taking part in rehab in order to have the best chances of success in recovery.

How drink and using drugs affects your life in the long run

The long-term effects of alcohol and drugs not only ruin your mind and body, but there are also wider consequences.

There can be problems with relationships in your family and with friends. There are often financial difficulties for a person. Addiction can cause huge amounts of damage. However, at Rehab 4 Addiction we know that these areas can be healed along with your mind and body.
