There is no shame

There is an unnecessary and negative stigma that surrounds drug and alcohol addictions, and rehabilitation for such disorders.

This stigma over the years has damaged the view of substance and behavioural addictions, working to make them and the people that are battling them seem unworthy, hopeless, or even dirty.

This is far from the truth, and if you are someone who is attempting to deal with a drug or alcohol addiction, you no longer have to feel this way.

There is no shame in admitting that you have a problem with substances, or that you require help to lessen your dependence on drink or drugs.

We understand the embarrassment, shame or regret that you may be feeling at this time – we’ve experienced this ourselves before, as many of our team have dealt with addiction in the past and are now living in recovery – but with us, we hope these feelings will fade.

We work hard to ensure that Rehab 4 Addiction is a judgement-free zone, a safe space where you can feel comfortable openly discussing sensitive topics such as addiction, substances, methods of abuse and even possible reasons for your abuse.

Our admissions team are there to support and guide you through the process of enquiring and the possible referral to a drug and alcohol rehab in Pickering.

If you have any concerns, personal requirements or simple questions and queries about the process, feel free to let a member of the team know, and they will try their best to accommodate, answer, and advise.

Signs and symptoms of an addiction

It can be extremely difficult to not only admit you are dealing with a drug or alcohol addiction, but also simply to acknowledge the symptoms of this addiction in the first place.

Many individuals will refuse to seek professional help for their addiction as they are merely unaware that an addiction is present, due to a simple lack of knowledge about the symptoms of one.

Fortunately, this is easier to help than a denial of the existence of symptoms whatsoever, as by educating clients on these signs of an addiction, it becomes easier to see when one is occurring.

Symptoms of addiction can crop up throughout your life in many different ways, usually through your physical appearance, your mental health and attitude, and your behaviour in social and work situations.

Below is a list of some of the most common signs of drug and alcohol addiction. If you find yourself noticing some of these symptoms in your life – or that of a loved one – we recommend reaching out to us here at Rehab 4 Addiction as soon as you can.

The faster we get hold of addiction, the easier it usually is to treat and the less likely it is that permanent damage has already been done to the body, so call us today on 0800 140 4690 if you resonate with any of the following:

Physical signs of addiction

  • There has been a drastic change in your physical appearance, such as a sudden and unexpected loss of weight
  • You are struggling to keep a normal sleeping pattern
  • Your tolerance for the substance you use has increased since your first use
  • Your tolerance for the substance continues to increase with each use, resulting in the need for you to up the dosage each time in order to reach the same desired effect
  • You experience withdrawal symptoms when you have not used the substance for a short period of time (these can include nausea, headaches, fatigue, mood swings and dizziness)

Mental signs of addiction

  • You are more on edge or angrier than usual
  • All you think about is the substance, or when your next use of the substance will be
  • You struggle to think about much else
  • You turn to the substance for comfort, escapism, or to deal with/forget about difficult feelings
  • You are experiencing heightened symptoms of an existing or new mental health disorder (such as depression or anxiety)

Social signs of addiction

  • You are lashing out at loved ones for seemingly no reason, especially when they express concern over your use of the substance
  • You are lying to loved ones about your use of the substance
  • You have a hidden stash of the substance somewhere secret
  • You are more withdrawn in your work and social life than usual
  • You are avoiding work and social responsibilities or events
  • You are avoiding these types of situations in order to instead use the substance

Don’t wait to reach out

Waiting to seek professional or medical help for a drug or alcohol addiction can prove to be fatal in some severe cases. Even if you believe that you have an addiction ‘under control’, the situation may be worse than you realise.

If you do decide to wait to reach out to us here at Rehab 4 Addiction, it could result in further damage being inflicted on your brain and your body, which may become irreversible the longer you put off seeking treatment.

Don’t wait to start your new substance-free life, and don’t delay your chances of a full and long-term recovery from drugs or alcohol.

If you are experiencing any of the signs and symptoms of an addiction mentioned above, please get in contact with us immediately via our free, 24/7 helpline: 0800 140 4690
