How to recognise a drug or alcohol addiction in yourself

When you have a drug or alcohol addiction present, it can be very difficult to recognise the behaviours and symptoms in yourself. Addiction causes denial, which is why it is so successful in progressing over time.

Failing to see or acknowledge a problem leads those struggling with addiction to believe that there is no problem.

It’s important that you take a very honest look at your behaviours in order to determine whether or not your substance use has become an addiction.

Try to ignore the initial impulse to be defensive in the face of the following questions and those close to you who raise concerns.

  • Have you noticed that your drug or alcohol consumption has increased over time?
  • Does finding and or using drugs or alcohol take priority over other activities?
  • Have close friends and/or relatives commented on your drug or alcohol use with concern?
  • Are you using drugs and/or alcohol to help you cope with physical or mental pain?
  • Do you feel unable to stop taking substances or have you tried and failed?
  • Do you make excuses for your substance abuse?
  • Do you feel either mentally or physically unwell if you are unable to use drugs or alcohol?

Answering yes to some, or especially all of the above demonstrates a fairly strong chance that you are suffering from addiction.

Addiction is a disease that is woven through all layers of society, so don’t feel any shame in admitting you have a problem. It takes a very strong person to accept help.

How do I locate reputable addiction treatment services in Long Sutton?

Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we can help you find a suitable drug and alcohol rehab centre in the Long Sutton area, or further afield, if you prefer.

We have already pre-verified the quality of all of our partner treatment facilities, all of whom operate under the CQC (Care Quality Commission) regulations. It’s important, however, that you also source the right type of treatment for your addiction.

We use a short assessment to help us ascertain the severity of your drugs or alcohol addiction, in order that we can recommend the type of treatment that will be most helpful to you.

Outpatient and community-based treatment options are available in Long Sutton, and these may offer benefits to those with very minor substance abuse issues, however, for those with established addictions, we are more likely to recommend residential rehab.

We will, of course, take your personal circumstances and preferences, your affordability and any pre-existing conditions into account when recommending a facility.

In some cases, we are able to get an admission date on the same day.

How can residential rehab help me overcome my addiction?

Residential rehab offers a comprehensive treatment programme that uses a combination of highly effective addiction treatments that address both the physical and psychological aspects of your addiction.

Programmes are tailored to your own personal experience, which offers the highest potential to achieve maintained recovery.

You will benefit from 24-hour support from doctors and medical staff who specialise in drug and alcohol addiction recovery.

All of your daily needs, such as food, exercise and rest, will also be met at the residential treatment centre; and the isolation from your daily life offers you the opportunity to focus solely on your recovery.

Detox

Medically assisted detox will usually be the first treatment after your initial admission and assessment, and this will prepare you both physically and mentally to focus on your continued recovery.

Your access to drugs and alcohol will be reduced gradually to minimise any withdrawal effects and there may be prescription medication to further assist with them.

This is the most comfortable and safest detox option available, and the benefits far outweigh any initial discomfort.

Psychotherapy

There are common psychological side effects involved in addiction, both in terms of the underlying cause for your use and in some cases, as a result of prolonged substance abuse.

Your mental attachment to drugs and/or alcohol will be challenged through leading psychotherapy treatments, including specialist counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and group therapy sessions.

How will I cope when I return home to Long Sutton?

Post-rehab you will receive continued support through aftercare services, to help you adjust to and maintain your newly found sobriety.
