When you have an addiction present, it can be very difficult to recognise the associated behaviours in yourself, which makes it even tougher to determine whether you have an addiction that requires professional intervention.
There’s also, unfortunately, many people who will believe their addiction is ‘under control’, even though they are aware of its presence.
Even if you acknowledge the need to recover, the fact is, attempts to recover independently from drug and/or alcohol addictions are not recommended, due to the severe risks involved.
It’s important that you are monitored every step of the way, by trained medical professionals, to mitigate the risks associated with withdrawal symptoms.
There are some key signs that will help you to determine whether your substance use has gone beyond abuse and verged into the area of addiction. One of the first major signals is when close friends or family members express concern about your substance use.
Whilst your first reaction will be to defend your useage and take offence, if this has happened to you a number of times, it’s time to consider whether their concern is truly unfounded.
If your main thoughts revolve around using drugs or alcohol, such as when you will next be able to use some, how to source it, or particularly, how you will hide the usage from others, these are all strong telltale signs of an addiction.
You may also notice mood changes, or a tendency to feel physically ill when substances are not used.
Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we can help you find reputable local addiction recovery treatment services, whatever your needs. We will need to carry out a short assessment when you contact us, to determine exactly what stage your addiction is at.
This will help us to determine which treatment will be most beneficial for you. There are both outpatient and residential treatment options available in the Lydd area, so there will be no need to travel further than that unless you would prefer to.
Outpatient treatment will involve staying at your usual home, and travelling back and forth to regular treatment appointments. This will require a strong commitment to your recovery, as you will need to be motivated enough to stay sober by yourself and not miss appointments.
Whilst this is possible for some people, those with mild to moderate addictions will always be recommended residential treatment.
Addiction affects both your physical and psychological health, which means that programmes that address both of these, are the most likely to succeed.
Aside from being holistically structured, residential treatment programmes delivered by our partner private residential rehab centres will be tailored to your specific experience of addiction.
Medically assisted detox will usually make up the initial stretch of your residential stay. You will be supported and cared for by trained medical professionals, who specialise in drug and alcohol detox, day and night.
They will ensure your safety throughout the withdrawal period, as well as minimising the discomfort caused by withdrawal symptoms using prescription medication, where possible.
Once sobriety has been reached, you will have the opportunity to focus more intently on the next stage of your treatment, psychological therapy.
This aspect of rehab is essentially the rehabilitation, and sadly, a part that is often missed. It’s critical to the maintenance of your newly found sobriety, that you learn how to stay motivated in your recovery indefinitely.
Throughout a range of modern psychotherapy options, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational therapy, group therapy and one to one counselling, you will look into the root cause of your condition and learn how to diminish the trigger behaviours from your life.
This combination of treatments is widely agreed to hold the best possible recovery success for those with drug and alcohol addiction.
The support from residential rehab services continues long after you leave, with most treatment centres offering at least 12 months of continued aftercare services, to help you stay motivated in the outside world.
You will also be encouraged to attend Lydd-based drug and alcohol, abstinence groups.
