The long term effects of addiction

Drug and alcohol addiction are amongst the most common types of addiction in the UK and whilst there is variance in the severity in different people, there is an overall agreement in the medical community that addiction is a progressive disease.

This means that left untreated the symptoms of addiction will intensify over time.

This also means that the damage to your body and mind will increase, the longer your addiction lasts. Aside from the damage to relationships from changes in your behaviour, long term mental health issues are common side effects of prolonged drug and alcohol addiction.

Damage to your internal organs, as well as long-term disabilities, are also potential side effects of continued alcoholism or drug addiction.

How can drug and alcohol rehab help me?

Rehab through one of our partner addiction treatment centres will help you to maintain your relationships, finances and health, by removing your desire and necessity to use drugs and/or alcohol.

There are both outpatient and residential rehab programmes available, although if your illness is moderate to severe, the latter is likely to be our recommendation.

Residential rehab will address both your mental and your physical connections to drugs and/or alcohol, making long term sobriety both possible and easier to maintain.

It also gives you the opportunity to spend some time away from your usual social circle and the triggering factors of your drug and alcohol use in your daily life.

A prerequisite of attending rehab is that you have a desire to recover, so entering into a residential programme will give you the opportunity to be with other people who are looking to recover from similar afflictions.

This increases the motivation within your environment and gives you the opportunity to build a support network with like-minded individuals.

You will have access to leading professionals in the area of addiction recovery and modern addiction treatments, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, group therapy and alternative therapy programmes.

You will also undergo a medically supported detox, which offers the safest and most comfortable detox experience available.

In unison, and alongside a substantial relapse prevention plan, these treatments will give you the best possible chance to turn your life around.

Residential rehab is proven to be the most effective method of addiction recovery treatment and the abstinence method followed by the vast majority of our partner facilities is used worldwide.

The holistic approach means that you are less likely to relapse than with community and outpatient programmes, which require a far higher degree of self-management.
