Rehab 4 Addiction

Addiction problems are on the rise across the UK and Loughborough is not immune from this. The impact of substance abuse is serious, and it can not only destroy the life of the individual but it also harms their family and friends. It is important that people break away from this maladaptive behaviour as soon as possible because addiction tends to be a downward spiral.

The longer the individual remains addicted the more they will have to lose. In order to have an effective possible start in recovery it is beneficial to attend drug or alcohol treatment centres. Those people who are living in the Loughborough area will find that there are a number of options for this open to them.

Myths and Misunderstands about Drug and Alcohol Use Disorder Rehabilitation

There can be many myths and misunderstandings about drug and alcohol rehabilitation and these can discourage the individual from getting help. Some of these myths include:

  • The person needs to lose everything before they can get better. This is due to a misunderstanding of the term ‘rock bottom’- the individual fails to realise that it is possible to have a high rock bottom where they have lost relatively little due to their addiction. There is no benefit in losing more than they already have to alcohol or drugs
  • Another dangerous myth is that people who become sober will spend the rest of their life missing alcohol or drugs. The reality is that people learn to live a new life and once they become established in recovery they will rarely think about these substances
  • Some people believe that sober living is boring and predictable. This myth misses out on the reality that it is the life of those affected by substance use disorder that is boring and predictable – it is only when people have been sober for a while that they begin to discover real happiness
