Treatments you should expect

When you attend a Gloucestershire rehab clinic, you receive a full psychiatric assessment upon arrival. This assessment determines your state of physical and psychological health. Our psychiatrist may request sight of your medical history if you suffer from an acute mental health problem or an eating disorder. Towards the conclusion of this assessment, our psychiatrist will prescribe suitable medication to reduce withdrawal symptoms you will experience during detoxification.

Following this assessment, your rehabilitation and detoxification programme will begin. During your stay at a Gloucestershire rehab centre, you will engage in daily therapy sessions. These therapies include psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and a range of holistic therapies.

These therapies treat the mental aspect of drug or alcohol addiction. If the mental component of addiction remains untreated, relapse is likely once you leave the Gloucestershire rehab centre. However, if the mental aspect of addiction is treated successfully, the risk of relapse is significantly diminished once you return to your normal living environment outside of the rehab clinic.

Many people seeking treatment for addiction will be accustomed to receiving medical attention via the NHS. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we believe the NHS is a British institution we should all be proud of. However, over the last decade, NHS support for addiction has all but fell by the wayside.

Bureaucrats and politicians argue scare NHS funding should be reserved for people who are not at fault for their condition. This belief assumes people suffering from addiction are somehow ‘at fault’. We believe this reasoning is unfair.

Due to this lack of treatment through the NHS, the private rehabilitation industry has proliferated over the last decade. This requires you pay for your treatment personally, or through private medical insurance. This state-of-affairs may concern you.

Since you must pay for your treatment yourself, you will likely be eager to select treatment you can be 100% sure is suitable for your requirements.

To appease this concern, we are offering you the opportunity to view our partner Gloucestershire rehab centre without risking any financial outlay. During this ‘viewing’, you will be given the chance to witness the effectiveness of these therapies for yourself.

Following this viewing, you may return home and you are given enough opportunity to decide whether or not to invest in our treatment.

We believe this offer will also cement your commitment to rehabilitation, and thus improve your overall rehab experience. However, we must stress this offer is not open forever.

To take advantage of this special introductory offer, contact our admissions team today for free on 0800 140 4690.

Is there a danger of underestimating the dangers of alcohol and drug use?

Alcohol and many drugs are widely regarded as a harmless social pleasure. However, thousands upon thousands of people across the United Kingdom will develop an addiction to alcohol and drugs each year. Some will even die because of their alcoholism or drug addiction. Many are even surprised to discover that alcohol is indeed a potentially dangerous drug, albeit one that’s perfectly legal to consume.

Those who develop alcoholism or drug addiction will become utterly consumed by their drug of use. The NHS estimates around 3% of women and 9% of men will suffer from alcoholism during their lifetime.

When alcoholism or drug addiction develops, a preoccupation with drinking or drug using also arises. This means drinking alcohol or using drugs is prioritised at the expense of other important responsibilities. Many people who suffer from alcoholism or drug addiction say they are not able to function correctly without alcohol or drugs.

What is alcohol and drug dependency?

Alcohol dependency is a chronic illness that’s commonly known as alcoholism. Alcohol dependency is characterised by an uncontrollable desire to drink alcohol. When alcohol dependency arises, those affected will build up a tolerance meaning more alcohol must be consumed to satisfy cravings. For those suffering with alcohol dependency, withdrawal symptoms will be experienced when alcohol consumption is abruptly stopped.

Since alcohol dependency is a progressive disorder, there exists varying degrees of this illness. For instance, you may suffer from alcohol dependency even though your level of drinking is not described as excess, or where you are able to function with everyday tasks.

One sign that may indicate you are suffering from alcohol dependency is that you are not able to enjoy yourself without drinking alcohol. You may suffer from depression or anxiety when alcohol is not consumed. Some people mistake these alcohol withdrawal symptoms with bona fide mental health problems. Some even drink alcohol in order to ‘self-medicate’ these alcohol-induced mental health issues, even though alcohol is causing these symptoms to arise in the first place.

Because alcohol dependency is a physical addiction, your body will undergo physical withdrawal symptoms when alcohol consumption is brought to a halt. These symptoms include nausea, sweeting, shaking, and a fall in blood pressure.

What is alcohol abuse?

Alcohol abuse is a broad term which also includes binge drinking. Many people who abuse alcohol may mistakenly believe they are not causing damage to their health because they have not developed alcohol dependency. However, this belief is incorrect, and alcohol abuse may cause a variety of problems for drinkers’ health, including alcohol poisoning and in even death in extreme cases.

Alcohol abuse always precedes alcohol dependency. This is because alcohol dependency is a progressive disorder. Those suffering from alcohol abuse are usually able to hold together their social and professional lives. For this reason, it may be difficult to convince a person suffering from alcohol abuse that professional help is needed.

Alcohol abuse is chiefly characterised by regular excessive drinking. This drinking inflicts a variety of negative consequences on the lives of those who develop this disorder. These negative consequences may arrive in the form of professional problems at work, social problems at home and criminality.

When does alcohol abuse develop into alcohol dependency?

One sign that may indicate the on-set of alcohol dependency is when your tolerance for drinking alcohol begins to build up. This is when you must drink more and more alcohol in order to satisfy alcohol cravings. You will likely begin to suffer from physical withdrawal symptoms when alcohol is not consumed. These withdrawal symptoms typically include ‘the shakes’, sweating and nausea.

Some of the psychological signs of alcohol dependency include:

  1. You develop a compulsion to consume alcohol even when it may be inappropriate to do so
  2. You worry about where the next drink is coming from
  3. You feel the need to drink alcohol shortly after waking up in the morning

What causes alcohol dependency?

Alcohol dependency is a complex disorder. Alcohol dependency thus arises when several contributory factors combine. These factors may include hereditary factors and environment factors. Common environmental factors include undergoing a major stressful event, such as job loss or a bereavement in the family.

Suffering from an underlying mental health disorder is also thought to increase your odds of suffering from alcoholism. Common ‘dual diagnosis’ mental health issues include anxiety, depression, PTSD and psychosis. Some people suffering with mental health disorders may ‘self-medicate’ their condition using alcohol. However, in the end, alcohol merely aggravates the symptoms of these common mental health disorders.

How to prevent the occurrence of alcohol dependency?

If you believe you are developing alcohol dependency, you may benefit from advice designed to prevent this disorder from arising in the first place. One tip is stop drinking alcohol, or to enforce long breaks between days when you drink alcohol. This helps to prevent your body building up a tolerance for drinking alcohol. This is also known as ‘breaking down’ your drinking cycle.

Health problems links to alcohol dependency

Alcohol dependency inflicts damage on both your physical and psychological well-being. Alcohol dependency induced physical health problems include suffering from high blood pressure, a stroke, heart disease and a variety of liver aliments.

Psychological problems arising from alcohol dependency include anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. Alcohol causes these psychological problems because it interferes with neurotransmitters that regulate mood.

Getting help today

If you suffer from alcohol abuse or alcohol dependency, consider going to a residential rehab clinic. If you suffer from physical withdrawal symptoms when alcohol is not consumed, it’s essential for you to undergo a medically assisted detox from the safety of a residential rehab clinic.
