How do you know when you should seek help with your addiction?
As more attention is correctly being placed on rising mental health issues, the UK is experiencing the highest figures of drug or alcohol-related casualties. Thankfully, more and more people are beginning to understand the threats which mental health issues pose, but when it comes to comprehending the risks of alcohol or drug abuse, we’re generally still behind. At our rehab in Castleford, we take all of this on board. We recognise and fully understand the severity of an addiction to alcohol or drugs. This is why it’s our mission to help those who need it most achieve long-term recovery.
If you’re suffering with any negativity from drug or alcohol addiction then it’s highly recommended that you seek professional support. It doesn’t matter how mild your symptoms are, the best time to receive treatment is now. If left untreated, the addiction will only intensify, potentially leading to irreversible physical or psychological health. Although the initial phone call to our treatment centre may seem daunting, it’s the best step you can take to help secure a happy and healthy future. You won’t regret it.
Are you in denial about your addiction to alcohol or drugs?
Perhaps you’ve tried to convince yourself that you can overcome your addiction alone without any professional support. This isn’t unusual for someone in your position, but believe us, you don’t and shouldn’t have to struggle with this on your own. There are many people in the same position as you, your recovery journey has to start somewhere.
One of the biggest challenges that people face is admitting to themselves that they have a problem; this is denial. More often than not, people who are addicted to alcohol or drugs will have a dual diagnosis, meaning they’re also suffering with a mental health problem. Both an addiction and a mental health problem can have a detrimental effect on your ability to make logical decisions. You may struggle to reason with yourself and feel impulsive towards certain things; this can make it very difficult to ask for help. It’s quite common for people who are addicted to alcohol or drugs to believe that they remain in control of the situation, sadly this couldn’t be further from the truth.
It’s likely that the lives of loved ones around you are being impacted by your addiction, however, this can sometimes be impossible to see. Our dedicated team have years of experience in delivering addiction treatments and devote their undivided attention to your needs during your time with us. Whatever it is that you’re struggling with, we can help you.
