How to tell if you have an addiction

The differences between substance abuse, misuse and full addiction are very slim. However, addiction is a disease that means you have a complete dependency on the drug or alcohol in order to function.

This can involve withdrawal symptoms when you’re not taking them and can lead to some fatal complications.

Addictions can sometimes be hard to spot in yourself, especially if you are in denial. Justifying actions or avoiding conversations about consumption are key indicators that you may be living in denial.

However, if you have noticed that your drug or alcohol consumption is becoming more frequent, you may want to ask yourself some of the following questions:

  • Have I recently found it hard to get through the day without drinking or taking drugs?
  • Do I secretly consume alcohol or drugs, away from friends or family?
  • Do I consume drugs or alcohol at different times of the day?
  • Do I feel like my worries disappear when I am consuming or taking drugs?
  • Do I feel anxious or nauseated when I don’t drink or take drugs?
  • Have any of my family members or colleagues asked if I’m alright, if I need any support?
  • Have any of my colleagues or family members commented on my physical appearance?
  • Have I personally noticed any changes in my physical appearance, like weight loss?

If you’re answering yes to any or all of the above questions, it’s highly likely you are suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction and you may even be experiencing withdrawal when you’re not taking.

Why is seeking help so important?

Oftentimes people struggling with addiction will ignore support or overlook conversations when people reach out to them, claiming they could easily stop if they wanted to.

However, this is never a safe option as going ‘cold turkey’ alone can often lead to relapse sooner than you think.

When you’re suffering from an alcohol or drug addiction, stopping consuming the substance will likely cause withdrawal symptoms which is hard to cope with alone and without support.

This means that’s many people who try to quit on their own find themselves going back to the substance in order to stop the pains of withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal can be a very discomforting feeling and leaves people feeling extremely unwell and when going it alone, the chances of relapse and hospitalisation are a lot higher. That’s why it’s crucial to seek the right help from our medical professionals at Rehab 4 Addiction.

Attending our drug & alcohol rehab in Honiton can open your eyes to the possibilities beyond your addiction.

What happens at a drug & alcohol rehab?

If it turns out rehabilitation is the right option for you, you will find yourself with a tailored programme to get you on the pathway to recovery in no time.

This will involve not only relieving the body of the substance but also understanding the underlying cause of the problem and what perpetuates it.

Your typical rehabilitation process will start with detoxification. This is where you’ll come off the substance completely and experience a withdrawal process.

Here, our friendly professionals at Rehab 4 Addiction will guide you through the process and offer a helping hand if necessary, with prescribed medications for those suffering from severe symptoms.

When you detox, it’s normal to feel very overwhelmed by the experience or get sick or feel upset. That’s because the toxins that have previously taken over your body are now being eliminated and you’ll be coming down from the ‘high’ you’ve been on during your addiction.

During this stage you will also attend regular therapy sessions and our staff will be on hand any time of the day to make sure you feel mentally secure during the withdrawal process.

Once you’ve completed a detox treatment, you’ll continue with regular therapy sessions.

This will be a breaking point in your journey as you’ll come to understand the reasons for your addiction, the triggers and environments in which your addiction is enabled and how to break away from old thought processes and behaviour patterns.

That is because addiction is not only a physical problem but a mental attachment too. For therapy, we offer a wide range of treatments, from one-to-one care to group support sessions.

Some people may feel cautious to join group therapy sessions however these have proven to strengthen recovery post-rehabilitation.

Having a strong support network after you’ve left our care is paramount to a long-lasting recovery and meeting people in similar situations opens up opportunities to make friends and build a community with like-minded people.

It’s that wealth of support post-rehab that can keep you on track in future. Connecting with people who have similar experiences of both addiction or substance abuse, as well as the experience of rehabilitation affords you with a close-knit group of people who know what it’s like and can be there for you when you need it most.

You’ll be able to reflect on your past thought processes and behaviours and pinpoint areas of your life where you let the addiction take control and thus prevent it from happening in the future.

You’ll also hear other people’s stories and be encouraged to share your own. A huge number of our patients recommend this option of therapy due to the network they have built and been able to connect with both inside and after attending our drug & alcohol rehab in Honiton.

What aftercare is available at Rehab 4 Addiction?

Once you leave our residential drug & alcohol rehab in Honiton, you’ll have a strong support network and the tools you’ll need to continue your journey. You’ll be able to overcome your addiction and create a resilient mindset to help you progress throughout your life.

But the support does not stop there, we offer qualified aftercare programmes for all of our patients. Choosing to take part means you’ll be able to enforce concepts learned during your rehabilitation programme and have a stronger chance for success in the long term.

Making sure you have continual care and evaluations going forwards means you can track your progress and avoid slipping into old habits. As with drug & alcohol rehab, opting for aftercare needs the same amount of commitment and drive to stay on the right path.

Understanding that your addiction has impacted your life and there may be areas in which you need to resolve relationships or work on responsibilities and trust shows that aftercare can be helpful in these situations.

Choosing the right length of time to complete aftercare programmes can be discussed with your personal therapist and will be determined on your current state, personal preferences and likelihood to relapse. Being properly assessed is the best way to find the right route for you.
