If you’re suffering from drug and alcohol addiction or maybe you know someone who struggling to overcome their substance abuse, either way, it’s crucial that you seek out the help of a professional treatment centre urgently. The longer you leave drug and alcohol addiction untreated, the worse it will get; you have to receive professional substance abuse treatment to fully overcome this awful disease. You need to break your physical and psychological connections with drugs or alcohol, whilst this may seem impossible right now, we can assure you that our drug and alcohol rehab Dunbar has helped countless people recover from alcohol and drug abuse.
Identifying a drug and alcohol addiction
Throughout our years of experience, we frequently see people in denial about their drug and alcohol addiction. This is so common because it’s a natural reaction to avoid accepting what’s perceived as a weakness when so many people still attach a stigma to substance abuse. When it comes to alcohol or drug abuse, excessive abuse can quickly lead to life-changing problems, both physically and psychologically. The toxins within drugs and alcohol are so harmful to our bodies and our minds, it’s impossible to avoid these devastating effects.
Whilst substance abuse will impact every person differently, you may notice a pale or unwell appearance, sudden weight loss or weight gain, bloodshot eyes, vomiting, increased anxiety and depression, memory problems, increased stress, paranoia, and skin sores. In addition to this, you’ll also be at a heightened risk of developing heart disease, liver disease, diabetes, stroke, bipolarity, loneliness, or even contemplating suicide.
If you’re concerned that a loved one could be suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, then you may notice a breakdown in their relationships with friends and family or a drastic change in their behaviours. They may have received warnings from work/school or even a dismissal, they may also be experiencing financial difficulties as they struggle to fund such an expensive addiction. It can be very difficult to watch someone we love to go through such a terrible thing and not fully understand how we can best help them. At our drug and alcohol rehab Dunbar, we offer intervention services as well as friend and family referral services should you need them. These services are very popular and have proven to be extremely useful in helping the person who needs professional support understand that their addiction isn’t only impacting themselves but also everyone around them.

Drug and alcohol detoxification process
All of our client’s substance abuse treatment plans are personalised, although it’s highly likely that we’ll recommend a drug or alcohol detox for most people. Detoxification is the most effective way to gradually reduce your consumption of the substance in a safe and controlled way. With the 24/7 supervision of our addiction specialists, you can safely complete a detox, removing the harmful toxins from your body giving you the opportunity to cleanse.
We know that a drug and alcohol detox can be unpleasant, this is usually linked to the withdrawal symptoms that commonly present themselves as you reduce your drug or alcohol intake. Whilst these can range from mild nausea to severe delirium tremens (the DT’s), they are manageable with the help of our excellent team.
What’s included in our admissions process?
After you’ve made the brave decision to turn your life around and overcome drug and alcohol addiction for good, you’re ready to take the first step and get in touch with our friendly admissions team. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like and discuss all the treatment options available to you. Then if you’d like to proceed with your addiction rehab, we can arrange a pre-screening assessment to review your physical and psychological health. This is also a good opportunity for us to get to know you better and understand the nature of your addiction in more detail so that we can design the most effective treatment programme for you.
What’s the best way to speak to someone with an alcohol or drug abuse problem?
Of course, this won’t be an easy conversation to have but it’s an extremely important one. The person who is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction will likely find this subject much more difficult to talk about than you, as they might not have even admitted their own addiction to themselves yet. It will help to do as much research as you can on drug and alcohol abuse so that you can accurately discuss any symptoms or negative behaviours that you think they’re experiencing. Don’t be judgmental and remain open during the conversation so that you can have a meaningful discussion with the aim of seeking out professional help.
What’s included in aftercare?
Any reputable drug and alcohol treatment centre will provide you with a personalised aftercare plan. Our rehab in Dunbar understands that your aftercare is equally as important as your main treatment programme. Once you’ve completed your drug or alcohol detox and subsequent therapies at our addiction rehab, you’ll return home to continue along your road to recovery. All of our clients will receive a 12-month aftercare plan free of charge inclusive of dedicated helplines and access to local support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous.
