Addiction carries with it a very negative stigmatism. It can be easy to judge others who become prey to it, but not many realise that anyone could suffer from addiction.
Drugs and alcohol can severely affect the chemicals in your brain, the biggest chemical it can alter is the release of dopamine.
This is a motivator chemical, once your brain notices that something you are doing/eating/drinking makes you feel good, dopamine will be released.
It’s impossible to be addicted to dopamine, but you can become addicted to the thing that causes it to be released.
This can range from anything, from shopping to food, to running to, the most dangerous addiction, drugs and or alcohol.
This is why, at Rehab 4 Addiction, we promote open discussions, we don’t judge, and we encourage others not to either.
Having healthy conversations around addiction helps to confront the problem, and find a safe way to seek the help necessary.
We understand that, because of these negative connotations, seeking help for addiction may be hard, scary and uncomfortable. Our team, however, is there to support you and to make your life easier.
We promise to be kind, and understanding.
It can be very easy to allow emotions like shame or fear of judgement to prevent people from seeking help, which is understandable, however, failure to seek help can lead to irreparable damages to your health and your personal life.
Addiction and mental health, as well as physical health, problems go hand in hand. In the UK the rates of death due to addiction is very high, and sadly, only continues to increase.
Some of the signs, outside of your health, that shows that you might be struggling with addiction are your relationships.
This can range from your relationship with work, are you struggling with your career? Or it can be shown in your relationships with your loved ones, your family and your friends.
Once some people recognise this problem, they often make the mistake of attempting to go ‘cold turkey’, which means that they take a complete step back from the thing they are addicted to.
But this can be incredibly harmful and dangerous to your health, and more often than not, may lead to a relapse happening much sooner than you’d think.
This is where we come in, we at Rehab 4 Addiction want the rates of addiction deaths to decline, and we want to help you get your life back on track.
Rehab is proven to be the best method of treating addiction, and our job is to locate a rehabilitation centre in Newhaven that will benefit you the most.
Once you’ve called us and expressed some interest in receiving help from us, we’ll then arrange an appointment and complete a thorough assessment.
We’ll want to know how you’re coping both physically and mentally with your addiction.
Having this knowledge will help us to do two things:
If it is, then we’ll rush to get you in rehab almost the next day so that you can get the help you need as soon as possible.
At Rehab 4 Addiction situated in Newhaven, we understand that everyone is different. Addiction can be caused by traumatic personal experiences and thus needs to be treated in a way that is completely personalised to you.
Once we have this discussion with you, we’ll know which rehab in Newhaven will be best suited to you and we’ll also be able to create a bespoke treatment that will help you on your recovery journey.
However, when you first get to rehab there will be one unanimous step for all of our patients: Detox.
It isn’t a secret that dealing with withdrawal symptoms is difficult, but we are here to assure you that the staff in our rehab’s in Newhaven are qualified medical professionals there to support you on this journey.
During your detox, our doctors, nurses and care team will monitor you in order to ensure that you are coping as well as possible.
If they note a problem, they will prescribe you medication to help you cope with anything uncomfortable such as headaches, dizziness, anxiety, stomach pains etc.
After this period, which normally lasts 7-10 days, we’ll begin treatment. This consists of a range of therapy methods, including physical therapy, holistic therapy and group therapy.
This will provide you with the necessary tools needed to get you through life outside of rehab.
Here, you’ll sift through the trauma of addiction, whilst also gaining a new understanding of why/how it happened, and you’ll learn how to prevent relapses.
If this sounds like a journey you’re ready to go on, then call up Rehab 4 Addiction today.
