Addiction can happen to anyone, and what may start out as an infrequent or recreational use can turn into addiction before you know it.
If you have been struggling with substance abuse and fear that it may be turning into a full-blown addiction, it is important to seek help sooner rather than later.
Ignoring an addiction only makes the problem worse, and the longer an addiction continues, the more difficult it is to treat.
As well as this, addiction often leads to risky behaviours which can lead to accidents or even death.
Finding the right treatment can be overwhelming. That’s why here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we have taken all the stress of finding the right treatment away from you.
Our team of addiction experts can offer free and confidential advice on addictions, substances, and rehabilitation clinics near you.
If you feel like you would benefit from drug and alcohol rehab in Ryton, contact Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690.
If you are worried about your substance use and fear that you may have an addiction, you should contact an addiction specialist.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, when you make contact with us, an addiction expert will ask you several questions about your substance use and lifestyle to determine whether or not you have an addiction.
If it turns out that you do have an addiction, a personalised treatment plan will be recommended for you.
This may include a stay at an inpatient facility, a psychiatric referral, some community support groups, or a mix of several different treatments.
Before you contact us, or if you are worried about someone you know who you fear is abusing drugs or alcohol, it is helpful to know some of the most common signs and symptoms of addiction.
It is important to note that this list is not exhaustive, and while these are common signs of addiction, addiction affects people in different ways.
However, if several of the issues listed above are familiar to you, it is definitely time to contact us today to start your journey towards sobriety.
Ryton offers several rehab options, and the treatment you receive will depend on your own personal circumstances such as the severity of addiction and budget.
However, while the most important step in your recovery journey is admitting that you need help, another important step is detoxification.
Detox is part of every rehabilitation plan regardless of the level of your addiction or budget. Detox is so important because it is the process of eliminating the substance from your body.
In cases of extreme or severe addictions, the detox stage is best done at an inpatient facility where a team of medical professionals will be available 24-7 should you face any unpleasant or dangerous withdrawal symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhoea, hallucinations, or delirium tremens (DTs).
Other options for drug and alcohol rehab in Ryton are:
Many different treatments come under the umbrella of therapy, and in rehab, the most common therapies are individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy and alternative therapies such as meditation or yoga.
Individual therapy aims to discover any underlying or co-occurring mental health issues such as depression and can also uncover any deep-rooted trauma that may have led to your addiction.
A popular therapy choice for anyone battling addiction is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT aims to change the way you think about and approach certain situations and can change your negative thought patterns into positive thought patterns.
It has proven to be very effective in the treatment of addictions.
Group therapy is when you meet with a group of people who are also battling addictions.
Group therapy gives you a non-judgemental and confidential space where you can share your story, talk about your triggers, get advice from your peers and learn coping mechanisms.
Family therapy can help to rebuild any relationships that have been affected by your addiction.
It provides a space for you and your loved ones to talk about how your addiction has negatively impacted them and their relationship with you.
Once all these feelings are out in the open, the relationship can begin to heal.
Alternative therapies introduce a sense of calm to your life and can also teach you some breathing techniques to utilise if you are feeling overwhelmed.
These therapies encourage you to take some time out and practise mindfulness techniques to keep you grounded.
