We have treatment centres for alcohol rehab if you live in Spain
Being dependent on drugs and alcohol is no way to live your life. That’s why we dedicate our lives and careers to helping everyone with a substance addiction to come out stronger on the other side. In this article, we’ll discuss reasons to seek treatment in Spain and how to recognise a drug addiction from the start.
How to Tell if You Have a Drug Addiction
There are many severities of a drug and alcohol addiction and unique reasons for having one. As everybody is different, drug and alcohol abuse affects people in different ways. But, if you’re worried that you or someone you love has an addiction, don’t just sit back, but take action. In order to recover from an addiction, you have to admit that you need help and prepare to move forward. There are many symptoms to look out for.
First, you’ll regularly experience an intense craving to seek the substance when you’re not consumed it. After long-term use, you’ll experience a physical dependence when you’re without drugs and alcohol. When there’s no longer any substance in your body, you’ll experience physical desires and signs that you need it again. The longer you continue consuming drugs and alcohol, you’ll develop a tolerance to the drug which means that living without them become psychologically and physically challenging. When you’re under the influence of alcohol and drugs, you’ll likely make poor and risky judgements, including lying, stealing and generally engaging in behaviour which isn’t healthy for you or others.
As your addiction continues to grow, you’ll begin developing an unhealthy relationship with friends and family. People become aware of a behavioural change and wish to spend less time having out with you. This is probably the most common and critical factor of drug addiction because when people who love you wish to take a step back, you know that you’re gone too far.
What Happens During a Drug or Alcohol Detox?
During addiction treatment, your mind and body will undergo severe changes which it will have to get used to. Your body will have to reset itself and the brain will have to re-adjust its natural levels of neurotransmitters. This chemical change can often cause withdrawal symptoms. However, our staff have years of experience in drug and alcohol addiction, and we’ll prescribe anti-withdrawal medications to help with any discomfort during the withdrawal stage. These prescribed drugs mimic what drugs and alcohol used to do without the feeling of euphoria to discourage any chances of addiction. As you progress with the detox stage, at our rehab centre, we will then gradually reduce this medication to help with your addiction recovery.
After the detox stage, you’ll then progress to a fully rehabilitated programme in one of our rehab clinics. When you first enter one of our rehabilitation centres, we’ll discuss an array of therapy sessions with you to help with your mind and body during this change.
