Addiction is a serious problem – that’s why there is nothing wrong with seeking help. Every year, thousands of people are admitted to rehabilitation centres and programmes across the UK.
If this sounds as if it is something you require, or you are struggling with substance abuse, the first step is always the hardest.
Taking this first step is also the most responsible thing to do in terms of your mental and physical wellbeing. Finding help in Wirksworth is only a message away with Rehab 4 Addiction.
In modern society, drug and alcohol abuse is responsible for a range of issues. Examples of these issues include criminal activity, violence, and antisocial tendencies.
Problems caused by addiction also affect the individual, from relationship issues and career progression to more serious issues such as health complications and constant hospital visits.
In the general Derbyshire area in 2020, there were 26 deaths relating to drug/alcohol poisoning. This number has been steadily increasing since 2017.
However, this number only encompasses direct deaths from drug/alcohol poisoning such as liver disease and severe strokes.
There are many more ways in which drug and alcohol misuse can affect an addict – some of these far more serious than others.
Although not all effects are life-threatening, they can still have severe and dangerous impacts on the person affected. The number for these statistics would be far higher.
Rehabilitation centres are not the only option, though they provide the best environment for the most effective recovery.
With years of scientific research behind them, rehabilitation centres are usually the best option when considering changing your current lifestyle on the road to sobriety.
Rehab 4 Addiction is here to help you find the most suitable options in Wirksworth.
If you’ve made the decision to seek help for your drug or alcohol abuse, you’re on the right track. Congratulations, and keep going.
Moving forward, it is important to consider what is the best option for you as an individual. Some addicts find it incredibly difficult to break the cycle of quitting, recovering partially, and relapsing.
There are many negative connotations of this as well, as many people struggle with feelings of shame, guilt, and regret.
If your addiction is more serious, taking the time to assess your options is even more essential. For example, serious addicts could have serious health complications from simply stopping their usage – known as going ‘cold turkey’.
Even a simple detox programme can cause withdrawal symptoms that are difficult to manage without professional supervision.
Residing as an inpatient in a rehabilitation centre can remove you from risks such as relapse; removal of triggering stimuli, people related to your abuse, and general invitations to engage in this behaviour again.
Support will be provided 24/7, including social care, medical needs, and general wellbeing checks.
This ensures that your journey to recovery is as manageable and effective as possible. Contact Rehab 4 Addiction today for more information about the services available around the Wirksworth area.
Across and around Wirksworth, as well as the rest of the UK, there are varying rehabilitation services available. Regardless of the services offered, all centres offer a safe and secure environment in which you can best begin recovery.
Staff are professionally trained to provide non-judgemental, confidential, and assuring support and treatments.
Working closely with staff, and others in the centre through group activities can boost your recovery, though it is not always essential. Group therapy is a heavily researched and proven treatment for addiction and its associated issues.
The first element of rehab to consider is the detox programme, usually completed before entering a rehabilitation centre (or soon after). As mentioned previously, the detox process in itself can be taxing and challenging.
Many people go through detoxes several times before moving on to later stages of rehabilitation. Having support 24/7 is the best option in this example, as assistance, advice, and reassurance are always available.
Though uncommon, some addicts choose to enter rehabilitation centres purely for a supervised detox programme.
This can be helpful in specific cases, but generally, it is encouraged to stay for longer, truly taking advantage of the wealth of services, experience, and assistance available to you.
Another option for treatment is to undertake a holistic addiction process.
This covers all elements of addiction: physical and mental.
By understanding more about the different effects of drug and alcohol abuse on the body, you are more equipped to recognise triggers, acknowledge risks of relapse, and generally make the process easier for yourself.
Some of the more common therapies (such as those previously mentioned) include personal counselling, group and talking therapies, alternative methods such as art and music therapies, as well as using educational courses and/or workshops to expand your understanding even further.
