Therefore, it is very important that once the decision to seek treatment is made for you be checked into rehab as soon as possible.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we are able to streamline the entire process.

We are able to create a profile on you from a free initial assessment where we learn about your history of substance abuse, any potential family history with substance abuse, your meant health and what you hope to gain from your stay at rehab.

We are then able to use this profile to check our database of rehab centres within the Chipping Norton area.

So that we can find a rehab centre with the facilities, you will need during your treatments.

This will be a difficult time in your life.

So please, let us handle the stress so you can manage the rest.

What causes a drug or alcohol dependency?

At this point in your journey, you may not be totally convinced you are, in fact, struggling with a drug or alcohol dependency.

As there are a lot of misconceptions and misinformation surrounding those that abuse substances and even what causes the substance abuse in the first place, this is perfectly understandable.

However, it can lead many people to not seek treatments as they believe they simply have a bad habit that needs breaking instead of a serious medical issue that, like any other health problem, requires treatment in the correct medical facility.

First of all, a drug or alcohol dependency can develop due to many different factors.

For example, there can be a genetic element. Should a close family member also struggle with some form of dependency, be it substance abuse or some other form like gambling, then there is a possibility you are more susceptible to developing a dependency of your own.

As well as this, by being exposed to substance abuse from a young age, the behaviour can be normalised.

Unfortunately, this often results in people not being able to spot the warning signs for when casual substance abuse can develop into a full-blown dependency.

If substance abuse also already existed in your home as a child, it would have made starting much more accessible. In the UK, most teenagers will try a controlled substance before the age of 18.

When this substance is easily found at home, this experimentation can easily become a drug or alcohol dependency.

However, the leading cause of substance abuse is mental health problems.

Many professionals that work for rehabilitation services recognise substance abuse is often a symptom of a deeper mental health issue that needs treatment.

These are most commonly:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • PTSD
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Psychosis

Substance abuse is more often than not used as a way to self medicate one or more of these conditions.

Trauma is also plays a crucial role in the development of a drug or alcohol dependency. Many who struggle with substance abuse are using it to numb the pain that follows a past trauma.

The trauma can be caused by anything such as:

  • Violence
  • Sexual assault
  • Homelessness
  • Death of a loved one
  • Military service
  • Illness
  • Domestic abuse
  • Bullying
  • Witnessing a tragic event

Trauma also changes the way in which your brain is able to process stress.

As a result, it is unable to respond to different levels of stress appropriately and often results in everything being considered a threat.

This is known as hypervigilance. Which many use drugs or alcohol to attempt to ignore just so they can try and just carry on like normal.

But this will only make your mental health worse in the long run.

How rehab helps

In order to combat the causes of substance abuse along with chemical dependency, rehab centres offer treatments to address each issue.

You will likely start with the detox, which is simply the process of allowing your body to rid itself of all drugs and alcohol over a ten-day period.

This works by having you work through the withdrawal symptoms in a controlled and safe environment that are monitored night and day by fully trained medical staff.

This staff can administer medications to relieve the withdrawal symptoms should they prove too much for your body.

This allows you to move on to the rest of your treatments without the distraction of your cravings.

Following the detox, you will be moved on to therapy.

In most rehab centres, this will take place through group sessions where you and others staying at the centre will work with a therapist to understand the cause of your substance abuse and how to replace it with healthier coping mechanisms.

Following your stay at the rehab centre, you will be offered aftercare services which tend to include follow up therapy sessions and a referral to a support group in the Chipping Norton area.
