What is an addiction?

Addiction is characterised by an individual taking part in certain behaviour that is known to have adverse consequences but also provides the individual with an incentive to continue.

This incentive can change depending on the source of the addiction.

Though your mind may wander straight to substances such as nicotine, other drugs, or alcohol, it is possible to be addicted to just about anything.

Sex, exercise, shopping, collecting, gambling, eating; all are examples of things that can become highly addictive over time.

This is where the incentive or the ‘high’ that is chased can vary. With addictions like shopping or collecting items, the high is provided by the purchase of a new item, with gambling, it is winning or getting close to a win, and so on.

With drugs and alcohol and other similar substances, the high is much more literal.

When we consume drinks and drugs, they release chemicals into our body that works to make us feel less stressed and worried, and more happy, relaxed and carefree.

For some, this high can be reached recreationally, and can be part of a healthy lifestyle in moderation. For others, the constant need to feel this high can soon develop into a dangerous addiction.

What causes addiction?

One of the leading factors of addiction is mental health.

If an individual is suffering from a mental health disorder, they are more likely to seek out substances to use as an escape or a coping mechanism to deal with difficult feelings they do not wish to face.

It may be alcohol to curb the effects of anxiety, or drugs like opioids to aid their depression, but the effects and the aftermath are always similar.

There are many other reasons why an addiction may appear in a persons life, such as a dysfunctional family, a traumatic past, an abusive relationship, or even pressuring friends.

All can lead to a person turning to drugs or alcohol to cope, forget, or even show off, and all can be deadly if left alone to worsen.

The addiction stigma

It is no lie that there is a negative stigma that surrounds addiction, rehab and recovery.

Because of this, many people who are struggling to cope with addiction – and even those that are attempting to get better – feel shameful about their situation.

We recognise that this can stop many individuals from wanting to reach out, and from wanting to admit they may have a problem with drugs or alcohol at all.

Rest assured that Rehab 4 Addiction is a place where you are guaranteed to feel safe, welcomed, and free to discuss your addiction with people who understand and are willing to listen.

The majority of our team have experienced some sort of addiction themselves in the past, so we know better than anyone what challenging emotions you are facing right now.

Please don’t be nervous to tell us details about your situation, addiction or even yourself, as we are dedicated to helping everyone, regardless of individual circumstances.

We are with you until the end

When you eventually leave rehab, it doesn’t mean the end of your journey to recovery, so it won’t mean an end to our support either.

We will continue to guide you for as long as you need us. You will receive a detailed and bespoke aftercare plan, and additional appointments can be made for you at your chosen clinic if necessary.

Our 24/7 helpline is always open and is free to call, so feel free to get in contact by calling 0800 140 4690, or by filling in our online form for a callback.
