Whether you live in St. Helens, Liverpool, Birkenhead or Southport, at Rehab Clinics Group, we are here to ensure that you receive treatment for substance addiction at a drug and alcohol rehab in Merseyside.
As cocaine and cannabis use increases in Merseyside, authorities are doing everything in their power to control the number of people consuming and dealing drugs across the region.
However, what they fail to realise is that to truly take action, individuals must be treated for their drug or alcohol addictions.
With an extensive NHS waiting list, private rehab treatment may be a last resort. However, it should not be avoided.
What Should I Do If I Think I Have an Addiction?
If you think that you are suffering from an addiction, the first thing you should do is talk to someone that you can trust.
Whether this is discussing your addiction with a loved one, or contacting us, voicing your concerns will help to determine if an addiction is present.
In rare cases, individuals may believe that they are suffering from an addiction, when, in fact, they are actually abusing drugs and beginning to experience withdrawal symptoms.
If this is the case, you should still seek support. If you have started to experience withdrawal symptoms, this is often one of the first signs that your drug abuse is indeed turning into an addiction.
If upon talking to a loved one, they also believe that you would benefit from attending rehab in Merseyside, we would once again urge you to contact us.
We would strongly advise against attempting to take matters into your own hands and trying to treat yourself with the support of your loved one.
Drug addictions require professional treatment. Failure to obtain professional help and complete a treatment programme will increase your chances of experiencing a relapse in the future.
If you remain unsure about whether you should seek treatment from a drug and alcohol rehab in Merseyside, we would ask you to consider the following questions;
- Do you find it hard to concentrate without consuming drugs?
- Do you experience nausea, headaches and increased anxiety when you have not consumed drugs?
- Are you administering drugs daily?
- Have you spent money on drugs, that should have been used to pay your mortgage, rent or bills?
- Have you noticed that you feel more on edge?
- Has your physical appearance changed?
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, you may well be suffering from a drug addiction.
How to Distinguish if an Addiction Is Present in Someone Else?
Individuals administering drugs are likely to believe that they do not rely on drugs or need them. They will convince themselves and others that they can quickly stop taking a substance. When an addiction is present, this is simply not possible, nor is it advised.
Individuals battling addictions will also be hesitant to admit that they need help, and they may even deny that there is anything wrong with them.
However, family members and friends that have spent a great wealth of time with an individual will be able to determine a shift in behaviour. Likewise, they will be able to recognise when something is not quite right.
If you suspect that someone close to you is suffering from an addiction, you may be eager to confront them. We would strongly advise that you do not do this without appropriate support.
We would also ask you to reconsider approaching an individual about an addiction unless you are confident that one is present. Failure to take the right approach could see your relationship damaged.
Should you find yourself hoping to distinguish if an addiction is present, there are various signs and symptoms that you can look out for. These include;
- Changes in their behaviour such as seeming more on edge
- Becoming extremely secretive about what they have been doing, or where they have been
- Going out late at night
- Becoming easily agitated
- Appearing to be extremely tired
- Suffering from heightened mental health disorders such as anxiety or depression
- Lacking personal hygiene and drastically reducing the efforts they put into their appearance
- Dramatic weight loss
- Complaining that they feel sick or have constant headaches
- Asking to borrow money
If you have spotted more than one of the above signs in someone, they may be suffering from an addiction. They may also be experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
Take Advantage of Our Leading Treatment Programmes Today
At Rehab Clinics Group, we have created leading treatment programmes for those suffering from drug and alcohol addictions to take advantage of.
We know that the physical and psychological influences that drugs have are life changing. Without treatment, they can even be life-threatening.
As a result, we have incorporated a wealth of psychological and well-being therapies into our treatment programmes.
These treatment options enable those with addictions to recover from the effects of their addictions mentally, physically and spiritually. They also complement our detoxification programmes.
While there are likely to be times that those in recovery feel better physically, purely recovering physically from an addiction is not enough. Without recovering psychologically, there are greater chances of relapsing in the future.
Our treatment programmes all have exceptionally high success rates.
Those that have previously obtained support from a drug and alcohol rehab in Merseyside have stated that the treatment provided to them has shown them that there is always a solution and that they can turn their lives around in as little as 28 days.
If you have come to realise that your drug addiction is beyond your control, we would advise you to contact us and seek our help.
We can locate a suitable drug and alcohol rehab in Merseyside for you to obtain treatment.
Likewise, if you know someone that has lost control of their addiction and lost sense of themselves, now is the time to take action.
Referring an individual for treatment on their behalf can be lifesaving.
