Why You Should Attending Rehab

Right now, you may believe that the only way you have any hope of overcoming your addiction to drugs and alcohol is by going cold-turkey, and simply cut off all consumption of those toxic substances you’ve become so dependant on

However, we’re here to inform you that going completely cold-turkey alone and in your own home aka the environment in which your addiction probably took hold of you in the first place is not only very unlikely to help you reach your long-term sustainable recovery goals successfully but it can also be detrimental to your mental and physical well being. 

This is down to the fact that the symptoms you may experience while going through a withdrawal of drugs and alcohol can be harrowing and cause you great pain and discomfort, unlike anything you’ve ever felt before in your life.

They can also be a massive shock to the system and cause irreparable damage. 

This means that the detoxification process is absolutely vital, making it completely unavoidable while journeying through your road to recovery.

It is the first thing you’ll be expected to undertake when beginning your drug and alcohol addiction treatment, as it is the vital process of flushing all negative substances completely out of your system, hopefully once and for all.

When a person is going through the detoxification process, they can often show a wide variety of symptoms, including (but by no means limited to):

  • Anxiousness
  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinations
  • Insomnia
  • Fluctuations in blood pressure
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headaches

And many, many more. Keep in mind, however, that everybody is different, meaning that everyone’s experience with detoxing and withdrawal effects and symptoms can differ. 

This is why, in order to detox in a safe and healthy manner, you should absolutely be experiencing the detox and withdrawal process within one of Rehab 4 Addictions industry-leading and experienced detox clinics.

While attending our detox clinic, our professional and medically-trained staff members are able to help and support you when experiencing such a taxing process.

They will be there to monitor you and your health 24/7, as well as being able to provide you with medically assisted detox treatments and prescribed medicines, which will help to alleviate your symptoms as they present during the detoxification and withdrawal process. 

This of course will then allow you to be in the best possible physical and psychological state of mind and condition when beginning on the next steps of your drug and alcohol addiction recovery journey. 

Do You Need Addiction Treatment?

An addiction to drugs and alcohol or any form of toxic substance abuse can often cause you to begin neglecting all the most important things in your life.

You’ll find that the things that were once a priority, now take a back seat to your dependence on drugs and alcohol.

When you are suffering from a severe substance abuse disorder, all personal things in your life become neglected.

Your relationships, your hobbies, your job, your friends, your loved ones and your finances may all suffer neglect in the pursuit of your next “fix”.

Understandably, this can then cause you to put the entire way you usually live your life into jeopardy. It could also begin to make you feel completely isolated, cut off, alone, helpless and hopeless.

However, here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we are always here to help guide you, listen to you and offer you the support you need, no matter what your circumstances may be or how alone you may feel.

Substance abuse which is long-term can also negatively impact both your physical and mental health, by way of extreme and damaging side effects, which can sometimes be more prominent the longer you allow yourself to fuel your addiction and leave it untreated. 

The long-lasting side effects that drug and alcohol addiction can cause you to include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Malnutrition
  • Infertility
  • Diabetes
  • Severe liver damage
  • Cancer
  • Severe damage to the heart
  • Increased risk of suffering from strokes
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Seizures
  • The development of behavioural disorders
  • And an increased risk of developing mental disorders such as schizophrenia

As these side effects which stem from your drug and alcohol addiction begin to become more and more prominent, it is absolutely vital that you begin attending a rehab facility in order to complete a comprehensive drug and alcohol addiction treatment programme as soon as you possibly can. 

While right now the idea of admitting to yourself and to those around you that you do, in fact, suffer from an addiction, due to the fact you’re worried it may cause those you hold nearest to form negative assumptions about you resulting in them looking at your in a different way, by keeping your addiction to drugs and alcohol a secret, you will only be fuelling your addiction further and causing yourself more long-lasting psychological and physical harm in the process. 

 Begin Your Recovery Journey Today

So why not give yourself that chance today? Why put off the road to your better, freer, healthier sober until tomorrow? Or a week from now? Or a month? Or a year? The sooner you begin your drug and alcohol addiction treatment journey, the sooner you can begin living your life to the fullest, the way it’s meant to be lived.
