What can cause a drug and alcohol addiction?

No one starts using drugs or drinking alcohol expecting to develop an addiction, just as no one excepts to become a substance abuser. More often than not, people start consuming drugs and alcohol with innocent intentions and may not even realise their general consumption has gotten out of hand until further down the line.

Think about a habit or routine you have had for a while or think about habits or routines in general. By the very definition, a routine is something we do over and over again, most times without thinking – like brushing our teeth, for example. Brushing your teeth is harmless enough, and is actually beneficial to our health, hygiene and well-being.

Now, think about drug and alcohol consumption as your routine. Many people do consume alcohol and drugs, but not everyone makes a daily habit of it, it’s not an integral part of everyone’s routine, and that is when the issues start to arise. If you do something often enough, it becomes a habit, whether it’s a good one or in this case, a bad one.

But why does this happen to some people and not others? Most of the time it comes down to underlying psychological issues. When you combine continuous abuse with potential psychological triggers, developing an addiction is pretty much inevitable.

This is down to the fact that more often than not, drugs and alcohol are usually used as an escape from something else. This is true for people who suffer from addiction and people who do not.

If someone happens to be facing certain difficulties in their life, substance abuse could be being used as a coping mechanism. You may not think about it took much at the time, but by doing this, you are creating a trigger that tells you every time you feel stressed or upset, you should reach for alcohol and drugs.

This will then probably continue until you unknowingly develop both a physical and psychological dependence, and this is when the negative impacts start to rear their ugly heads.

With all this in mind, it can be good to reflect on your own personal situation. If you believe you are suffering from substance abuse, or that you may have a severe addiction to drugs and alcohol, we encourage you to speak out and seek help as soon as possible.

If you are considering a drug and alcohol rehab in Hoddesdon, please feel free to get in touch with Rehab 4 Addiction today.

The detoxification process

For anybody who suffers from a drug and alcohol addiction and wishes to reach a point of recovery from it, they must first go through (and complete) a drug and alcohol detox programme. This programme is vital to kickstart the rehabilitation process, and is a must for all rehab clients, as it helps to remove all the toxins and nasty substances from your body.

Understandably, this is one of the most challenging steps you need to take. However, it is absolutely necessary that you experience detoxification in order to promote your sobriety.

If you try to continue on your recovery journey with traces of drugs and alcohol still in your system, you risk a greater chance of relapse due to not having those cravings flushed completely out of your system. You would basically be setting yourself up for failure before you had really even started.

The detoxification process can take anywhere from 5-7 days to be completed fully.

Sustainable recovery from addiction

As well as completing a full detox programme, sustainable recovery will also be promoted through partnering rehab facilities and their offered treatment programmes. This includes making your way through a variety of addiction treatments and therapy sessions, which will be set over a realistic timeframe.

It may be obvious to say but suffering from a drug and alcohol addiction can negatively impact many areas of both your personal and professional life. Not to mention your physical and mental health also. To ensure you have the best possible chance of achieving sustainable recovery, a holistic approach to treatment is also required.

Some of the treatments you may find yourself working through include (but are not limited to):

  • Coping mechanism sessions
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • One on one therapy sessions
  • And support groups.

During your time in rehab, and even after your time in rehab, this combination of addiction treatments will serve you well, and will hopefully help you to avoid being triggered by any drug and alcohol temptations you may come across in the outside world.

If you would like to start your sustainable addiction recovery as soon as possible, you can contact our Rehab 4 Addiction team today. We promise to guide you in choosing the ideal treatment programme in the Hoddesdon area, best suited to your individual needs.
