An addiction is defined by an individual taking part in a behaviour that is known to have adverse consequences and side effects, but one that offers an incentive to continue.
Though the mind may jump immediately to substances like drugs and alcohol, it is possible to be addicted to just about anything.
An individual can become addicted to sex, exercise, gambling, shopping, collecting certain items, video games and even sleeping.
The constant in all these varying addictions is the incentive they offer which keeps the individual always going back for more, commonly labelled in drug and alcohol addictions as a ‘high’.
This high differs with each addiction; with gambling, the high is the feeling of winning, with collecting or shopping it is the purchase of a new item that brings this feeling, but with drugs or alcohol the high is much more literal.
When we use substances such as drinks and drugs, they create a neurochemical reaction that increases the amount of dopamine in our system. This release of chemicals works to make us feel less stressed and more relaxed, happy, and carefree.
It is this high that many turn to when needing to cope with difficult feelings stemming from abusive relationships, dysfunctional families, pressuring friends, stressful jobs, and much more.
The constant chase of this high is what, over time, creates an addiction.
An addiction can begin in many different ways. One of the most common ways in which an addition is created is through the use of substances like drugs or alcohol as a coping mechanism.
When substances are used as a way to cope with difficult feelings, people, or events, once recreational use of drugs or alcohol can warp into addiction very quickly.
With constant use, an individual’s tolerance for the substance they use increases with each use, leading to the user having to increase the dose each time in order to achieve the same high.
This increased tolerance is just one of many signs of an addiction-forming and is something that makes withdrawing from drugs or alcohol even more challenging than it already is.
Every client is different, and so is every addiction. This means that treatments for these addictions have to be different too, as what works for one person may not necessarily work as well on someone else.
This is why it is so important to have different treatment plans for all our clients, based on their specific needs, personal requirements, and aspects of themselves and their addiction.
There are many things that can change your needs for treatment, such as the severity of your situation, the length of time you have used for, the substance or substances you have used, and other factors like family history, age, weight, and any pre-existing mental and physical health problems.
We want to ensure that all of our clients receive the best possible treatment that matches their needs, which is why we work hard to obtain this data about you early on in the admissions process through a few simple assessments.
We use this information – which remains 100% confidential – to help us determine what your specific needs are, and this in turn helps us to create a bespoke treatment plan for you to follow throughout your rehabilitation.
Receiving personalised treatment instead of a blanket, one-size-fits-all method of care means that you have a much higher chance of achieving your recovery goals.
