Substance abuse can oftentimes go undetected. Substance abuse can be defined as the harmful use or patterns of using a substance for the purpose of altering the mind and escaping your usual reality.
This includes alcohol and other drugs, illegal or not as well as some substances that are not drugs at all.
Abusing prescribed medications by administering a higher dose or taking those prescribed to others is one form of misuse. Other signs are binge drinking or excessive drug use to escape from your reality.
It may not seem a problem and the user can often downplay the issue by justifying the behaviours or ignoring conversations over their consumption.
Addiction is a disease. Defined as having no ability to control over taking, doing or using a substance despite the fact it can be harmful to you.
There is a clear physical and mental dependency on the substance. Addiction can lead to damaging long-term effects and can even be fatal if not acknowledged and treated.
There are many reasons why addictions occur. In the case of alcohol, drugs and nicotine, the substances change the way you feel physically and mentally and thus are enjoyable to take creating an urge to use again and again.
Addictions get out of control when you build such intolerance that you need to take more and more to satisfy a craving and achieve the initial ‘high’.
Being addicted to a substance means that not taking it will cause withdrawal symptoms. These can range from low level to challenging for some people dependent on the drug and consumption.
Withdrawal symptoms are often the hardest barrier for addicts to push past, feeling scared of the reaction they will have when going ‘cold turkey’.
This is why people may continue to use despite knowing they have a problem as it will be an unpleasant experience, and it’s easier to carry on taking what you crave, continuing the cycle.
But this is what Rehab 4 Addiction in Ossett is here to break.
The strains an addiction can have on you can seriously damage your relationships and work life. Drug and alcohol addictions can have serious physical and phycological effects.
Alcoholism and drug addictions can increase anxiety or depression and also lead to suicide.
Although some studies suggest addiction is genetic, environmental factors such as those around you and the places you frequent can also increase the risk.
Addiction is a way of blocking out the difficult issues but in turn, can make those problems become worse by not facing up to them and solving them at the time.
Poverty and unemployment can also trigger addiction along with professional pressure, emotional problems and stress.
One of the hardest parts of addiction recovery is acknowledging the fact you are suffering from a serious condition and that you need to seek help.
However, addiction is completely treatable, no matter how deep into it you feel. There are many ways we can offer treatments and guidance for addiction recovery at our drug & alcohol rehab in Ossett.
Although we have a wide range of services at Rehab 4 Addiction, we will often recommend residential addiction rehabilitation.
It may feel like a big commitment to make but choosing to take the inpatient option affords you with around clock care, on hand medical professionals, support groups and one-to-one counselling as well as relapse prevention techniques with our aftercare.
Detoxification is your first port of call when it comes to recovery. Eliminating the substance from the body relieves the physical need and makes way for deeper treatments to find the root of the problem and resolve the psychological side of the addiction.
During the detoxification process, you will find yourself suffering from withdrawal symptoms. These can vary from person to person, much like addiction itself and we at Rehab 4 Addiction in Ossett understand that these feelings are individual to the person.
That’s why we have medical professionals on hand to support you throughout this stage of detoxification, prescribe withdrawal medications and offer guidance during a stressful time.
This is why we recommend inpatient rehabilitation compared to doing it alone at home.
Following on from your detoxification, we’ll have a plan for reaching the root of the problem. How you got to that place, how it has affected your relationships and working life, and any damage your affliction may have caused your daily life.
We can offer advice on rebuilding bonds and repairing relationships affected by your addiction as well as employability help. We can also work on taking on responsibilities again, as well as self-esteem and confidence-building workshops.
Much like the individuality of every addiction, we know that self-expression and learning is different for everyone. This is why we offer a wide range of services when it comes to post-detox psychological help.
Those who find comfort in hearing and sharing stories of addiction will find our support groups a comforting setting and this can often lead to a sense of community and strengthen your support network post-rehabilitation.
For those who find speaking in a one-to-one situation daunting, we also have art or music therapy where expression can be less verbal, and our psychiatrists can work around what is easiest for you to get to the root of the problem.
We also offer a range of alternative therapies, from acupuncture, light therapy, meditation and mindfulness programmes to equine therapy for those who need help rebuilding confidence and responsibility.
If you feel ready to make a change in your life Rehab 4 Addiction in Ossett is ready for your call.
All we need from you is five minutes of your time to explain your struggles, fears and the support network around you.
