Signs of Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Even getting to the stage of seeking help can be problematic and people with a drug or alcohol addiction will often be in denial – both to themselves and those around them – as to the extent of their problem.
There are a number of signs and symptoms of addiction to watch out for. Symptoms could include:
- Increased usage of drugs or alcohol
- Need to take more for the same effect
- Withdrawal symptoms if you don’t use the substance
- Avoiding situations where you can’t drink or use drugs
- Feeling anxious about the supply of drugs and/or alcohol
- Difficulty cutting down or quitting
Signs of addiction could include:
- Noticing increased usage
- Secrecy or defensiveness
- Becoming less interested in other activities
- Neglecting responsibilities
- Neglecting health, hygiene and appearance
- Constant low-level illnesses
- Mood swings, irritability
- Changes in energy levels – very lethargic to very energetic
These are not exhaustive lists but if you recognise any of these symptoms in yourself or signs in others, there might be a problem requiring professional help. We offer friend and family referrals for those worried about a loved one.
Finding Addiction Treatment Options in Barking
If you are looking for addiction treatment services in your area, residential rehabilitation offers a holistic programme that aims to treat every part of your addiction.
This will usually start with detoxification, commonly known as detox, followed or accompanied by a range of therapies and other treatments that will help you explore the root causes of your addictive behaviour.
Inpatient Rehab vs Outpatient Rehab
Drug and alcohol rehab is not the only option for drug and alcohol treatment in Barking. Outpatient rehab can be valuable for many people, but it does have some drawbacks and limitations.
With this type of treatment programme, you will have to manage your own appointments and detoxification. This can be very difficult when in the grip of an addiction and you are also likely to be surrounded by triggers and temptations that can be very hard to resist.
With residential or inpatient rehab you will be in a safe and secure environment, away from all those triggers and temptations. You will have round eth clock access to the best support and medical care, as well as comprehensive addiction treatment programmes delivered by highly experienced teams of addiction treatment professionals.
Residential rehab in Barking offers the best chance for you to break the cycle of addiction and move forward into a more positive life free of drink and drugs.
The Detoxification Process
Going through an alcohol or drug detox is generally a very delicate part of any recovery. The cravings and withdrawal symptoms that accompany detoxification can be severe and it can be both difficult and dangerous to attempt alone.
It is much better to go through the process in the secure environment of a drug or alcohol detox clinic where you can be monitored and receive medical assistance if required. This is a significant hurdle for anyone trying to kick a drug or alcohol addiction and one at which many people repeatedly fail when attempting to go it alone.
Therapy Options for Addiction Treatment
As well as the detoxification, a holistic rehab programme will set out to help you explore the root causes of your addiction and your thought processes and behaviours relating to drugs and alcohol. The exact programme can vary and will to a large part be tailored to your own situation based on the pre-treatment screening part or our admissions process.
It will usually include a range of psychological therapies, however, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), group therapy and various types of counselling. Our therapies may also include a number of cutting-edge treatments not commonly available, such as Satori chair therapy and transcranial electrical stimulation (TES) therapy.
Relapse Prevention and Aftercare
The recovery journey does not end when the rehab doors close behind you and neither does our support. A comprehensive aftercare programme can have a big impact on relapse prevention by providing vital support when you need it.
Aftercare provision can vary but will always be available after you’ve attended one of our residential rehab programmes.
What side effects could I experience during Detoxification?
Detox side effects and withdrawal symptoms are common during this process as the body metabolises the toxic elements in the system. They can vary widely depending on the substance involved and other factors. Withdrawal from cocaine or marijuana addiction can produce psychological withdrawal symptoms while alcohol withdrawal can have severe physical and psychological side effects including:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Visual hallucinations
How long does Rehab last?
There is no set duration for a rehab programme, but they will typically last between 30 and 90 days. In general terms, a longer programme is more likely to be effective but the right choice will depend on your own personal circumstances.
How do I pick the right Rehabilitation Programme?
You might be looking for a ‘rehab near me’ but sometimes finding a rehab that is the right fit for your personal requirements might mean looking a little further afield. We work with a range of rehabilitation centres around the UK and have a wealth of experience in matching people with the best drug and alcohol rehab for them.
