Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Much Wenlock

When dealing with an addiction – either yours or a loved one’s – suffering in silence is the worst way to make moves towards recovery.

However, Rehab 4 Addiction understands that it can be difficult to open up about personal issues. Contact us today to see how we can help you in Much Wenlock and the surrounding areas.

Addiction, when left untreated can manifest into a dangerous and life-changing habit. Therefore, seeking help as soon as possible is preferable.

When contacting Rehab 4 Addiction, all it takes is an initial telephone consultation before you can begin treatment.

Whether this is in a rehabilitation centre or a group therapy session, your journey to a drug-free and/or alcohol-free life is one step closer.

Drug and alcohol addiction signs and symptoms

Telling when someone is addicted can be difficult, but there are some common signs that can help you identify addiction in yourself or in others.

Some of these symptoms occur within a short space of time after beginning drug and alcohol abuse, but others take longer to develop and can be much more dangerous.

Often, some of the less serious symptoms are waved aside as another illness such as a cold or flu (often associated with a weakened immune system from substance abuse).

However, all symptoms experienced during substance abuse should be tracked carefully and treated as soon as possible.

Regardless of the duration, type or dosage of substance abuse, there are some common symptoms that are shown in a large majority of those suffering from addiction.

They are listed below:

  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Anxious/depressive thoughts
  • Changes in appearance e.g., paleness, weight loss
  • Fatigue (often as a result of insomnia)
  • Regular/consistent headaches
  • Muscle pains
  • Irritability and other mood swings
  • Cravings and changes in appetite
  • Difficulty in coordination and movement

If any of these symptoms are present in yourself or someone you know, then it is vital to seek support as soon as possible.

Without immediate treatment, these symptoms can quickly worsen and require hospitalisation in some cases.

Treating these symptoms is important for both short- and long-term reasons.

As mentioned before, when left untreated these symptoms quickly deteriorate, causing a lot of damage in a short space of time – sometimes irreversibly.

Why is it important for someone with an addiction to seek help?
