We appreciate how hard it can be to open up to someone about your drug and alcohol abuse, especially if you’re in denial about it yourself; it’s very common to see people in denial about their drug or alcohol addiction.

The signs of drug or alcohol addiction
As we mentioned above, many people really struggle to come to terms with the fact that they’re suffering from drug and alcohol abuse. If this is the case, it can be useful to know what the signs and symptoms of addiction are so that you can recognise them within your own behaviours but also within your loved ones if you’re concerned about their condition.
The more time that passes, the worse the addiction will become with these signs and symptoms becoming intensified, having an even more damaging impact on your well-being. Some of the signs and symptoms include headaches, irritability, problems sleeping, increased secretiveness, nausea, insomnia, changes in appetite, abrupt changes in weight, changes in speech, changes in appearance, increased levels of anxiety, lack of concentration, frequent mood swings, memory loss, distancing yourself from friends and family, increased lying, bloodshot eyes, and skin, hair, nails, and teeth degrading. If you’re experiencing any of the above signs or symptoms, then it’s vital that you seek support from a drug and alcohol rehab immediately.
The importance of drug or alcohol detox
Going through the process of a drug or alcohol detox is by far the most effective way to gradually reduce your consumption of alcohol or drugs in a safe and controlled setting such as our rehab in Newham. Visiting our detox clinic is the best way to start your recovery as it helps to cleanse your body and mind in preparation for your psychological therapies. Whilst none of our treatments are compulsory, we highly recommend a drug or alcohol detox for most of our clients as it’s certainly the most effective starting point for your recovery.
Detoxification is effective but only when it’s done right with the supervision of medical experts. We’ve seen a drug or alcohol detox fail on many occasions when people attempt this at home with no guidance and no medical assistance. The withdrawal symptoms that arise from detoxification can be quite dangerous and need to be managed by professionals to limit the risk of danger.
Without professional support, you’re putting yourself at great risk of potentially life-threatening damage. Our team are on hand 24/7 to minimise your discomfort and administer prescribed medication if necessary. Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms we see include headaches, seizures, dizziness, insomnia, nausea, and delirium tremens (DT’s).
Once you’ve successfully completed your drug or alcohol detox, you’ll hopefully feel much more prepared to take on the rest of your addiction treatment programme. Your psychological therapies could include cognitive behavioural therapy, relapse prevention, stress management, counselling, or dialectical behaviour therapy.
Whereas you’ll also receive well-being therapies such as relaxation and sleep management, mindfulness, yoga, low-level laser therapy, art therapy, nutritional supplement therapy, meditation, fitness therapy, and music therapy. All of the above will contribute greatly to giving you the very best chance to succeed in your recovery from drug or alcohol addiction.
How long does drug and alcohol rehab take?
The length of your treatment can vary significantly depending on the severity of your addiction and your personal circumstances as you join our rehab in Newham. Typically, a comprehensive addiction treatment programme will take around 28 days to complete, followed by our personalised aftercare plan which is free for 12 months.
What happens during drug or alcohol detox?
A drug or alcohol detox is the process of gradually reducing your drug or alcohol consumption until you’re no longer consuming the substance. It’s important that detox is carried out within the safety of a professional rehabilitation centre under the supervision of medical experts, otherwise, you’re putting yourself at high risk of danger. This drug or alcohol detox will allow you to cleanse as the toxins are removed from your system, making your psychological and well-being therapies much more effective.
Do we provide mental health support?
Of course, it’s essential that your mental health is taken care of at all times, particularly when you’re going through such a challenging time in your life. We frequently see people who are suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs also suffering from mental health problems so there’s absolutely nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed of. Our team are expertly trained and well experienced in delivering treatment for all kinds of people with different severities of addiction and mental health problems.
