How Drugs Affect Your Body
Drug and alcohol addiction should never be taken lightly, and if you’re seeking addiction treatment, it’s critical to understand how drugs affect your body. Sometimes, we’re aware that substances are bad for our physical and mental wellbeing, but we can’t comprehend to what extent they’re ruining our health.
If you’re consuming drugs or alcohol on a regular basis, you’re likely to have a serious accident, as when you’re intoxicated, you’re not aware of your surroundings, decisions or conscience. Many of the long-term effects include organ damage, erratic mood behaviour, and even the risk of cancer. However, if you’re not yet seeking treatment services for your substance abuse, you’re likely apprehensive and frightened of the side effects of the come down. This typically includes sweats, insomnia, migraines, hunger and severe mood swings. As these withdrawal symptoms can sometimes be so severe, people relapse and return to taking drugs and alcohol if they’re not engaged in a proper rehabilitation programme.
But, when you admission to one of our rehab centres, we’re right by your side during any difficult times.
Residential Rehab with Rehabs Clinic Group
We don’t want anyone to feel like the challenge that lies ahead in drug and alcohol rehab should hold you back. With proper support, therapy and knowledge, there is a clear way out. We provide everyone with a solid foundation to beat their drug and alcohol addiction. With a rehab centre in the United Kingdom – one in Watford and the other in Blackpool. So, if you’re based in the West Midlands or Birmingham itself, we have a centre to help you detox and move forward in life with a fresh start.
It’s almost impossible to undergo a drug or alcohol detox from home as you don’t have medication and skilled professionals by your side to support you. Plus, you’re still surrounded by temptation and triggers which could cause you to relapse. Our rehab programmes help you to live a drug-free life. This typically involves a diagnostic test and psychological examinations to create the best treatment programme for you. Being surrounded by medical advice massively increases your chances of recovery and the opportunity to build healthy habits. We help with people suffering in all areas of their lives, so we’re focused on strategies to calm your mind, reduce temptation and offer nutritional advice to manifest a healthier version of you.
Why Detoxing is Essential for Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Before beginning treatment, everyone has to detox so the chemicals in your brain can revert back to its normal state before drug and alcohol misuse. A medical detox involves stopping taking all substances as a way to get used to your new way of life. This process cleans out the substance from your body. Willpower is a huge part of pushing past this point, but many people experience withdrawal symptoms which are often so severe that they revert back to taking drugs and alcohol. However, with professional help, you’ll be prescribed medication to provide relief. Having medically-trained staff on-call also means that they’re never too far away to check your progress and review your health.
Once you physically stop craving drugs or alcohol, you’re ready to take the next step in our rehab centre. This is where we’ll asses your psychological wellbeing to address any underlying issues causing your addiction.
What Therapy You Can Expect
At Rehab Clinics Group, we offer a plethora of therapy to aid your recovery and help to prevent any relapses once you leave rehab. Therapy is extremely important to ensure that you’re connected with the present moment and fully aware of your choices – including any consequences. Therefore, we offer numerous types of therapy to provide a variety for your recovery. We require all applicants to engage in our therapy programmes to assist in your recovery. Don’t worry if you’re unsure which one best suits you, as you can discuss this with your support worker along with your recovery plan.
For example, Relapse Prevention provides you with coping skills to prepare you for life after you’ve completed your rehab programme. If you experience a strong urge to use, resist temptation and talk to a supportive person. We provide aftercare treatment, so we’re always on the end of the phone should you need someone to talk to. You’ll find that as soon as you begin talking about your cravings, they begin to disappear and you don’t feel alone in your situation. Typically, an urge will last around 30 minutes, so try to distract yourself with a healthy and fun activity until it passes. Keep yourself busy and focus on something else to make this time go by quicker.
Rather than waiting until a craving occurs, engage in healthy and mindful activities which keep you in a pleasant state of mind so you decrease the chances of relapse. Relaxation techniques are a great strategy for it. When you’re feeling tense, you’re more likely to reach for a substance for a quick-fix. So, learning how to relax improves your chances of living in sobriety.
Finally, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a huge part of the therapy we offer, and everyone who applies to our rehab centres will receive CBT.
