What are the Signs of Addiction?

Recognising the signs of addiction is the first step to accepting that you or someone you know has a problem. Though symptoms of addiction to drugs and alcohol are varied, there are some common signs you can be on the lookout for.

Physical signs:

  • Sudden weight change
  • Lack of personal hygiene
  • Dilated pupils and red eyes
  • Looking pale and sickly
  • Disrupted sleep patterns

Psychological signs:

  • Poor judgement
  • Increased temper and agitation
  • Can no longer focus or concentrate
  • Increased depression, anxiety and stress
  • Defensiveness

Behavioural signs:

  • Losing interest in activities that you once enjoyed
  • Trying to stop misusing substances and unable to do so
  • More secretive or dishonest
  • Pulling away from social situations and responsibilities
  • Continuing the addiction, despite the negative effects it is having on your life

There are many more symptoms, but if any of these are familiar to you, it may be time to seriously think about alcohol and drug rehab.


The Admissions Process

Deciding to attend a residential drug and alcohol rehab is a huge step. It is a decision that could change your life, and it’s natural to have many questions and worries.

We at Rehab Clinics Group understand this and try to make our admissions process as simple as possible. Our admissions team are experts at fielding questions and alleviating any concerns that you may have. They will guide you through the process – taking the time to guide you through the pre-admission screening so that we can make the correct addiction treatment plan for you. This will happen over the phone after your initial enquiry and takes only 20 minutes.

Afterwards, the deposit can be sorted to secure your place, and an admission date can be finalised. As a private organisation, we can have you in a facility within days of this initial phone call if there is space. This may seem fast, but it is important not to let your alcohol and/or drug addiction fester one more day than it has to.


Home Detox vs Medically Assisted Detox

Undergoing drug detox or alcohol detox is a major step in the recovery journey. Without ending your physical dependence on the harmful substances in your body, you cannot hope to effectively achieve long-term recovery.

Many people addicted to substances think that detox can be quite simple. Stop taking the substances and wait it out. As a result, people try it at home, maybe not fully aware of the risks.

Home detox does allow you to be in a comfortable and familiar environment – which may bring you relief during the process. It is also something that costs you no money, and you may have access to emotional support from family and friends. The risks home detox brings increase if you have a severe addiction. The withdrawal symptoms you will suffer from will be worse and possibly fatal as you could suffer a heart attack or stroke.

If your addiction is severe, the best option is medically assisted detoxification at a facility. With this process, you will be medically supervised the whole time, cared for by professionals and given medication to ease the worst of withdrawal symptoms. Medically assisted detox also decreases the chance of relapsing and provides the safest option for you.


Available Therapies for Helping with Addiction

As long as dealing with the physical effects of addiction through detox, it is important to delve into the deeper side of it. With our range of therapies, Rehab Clinics Group provides an addiction treatment plan designed to help you reach your recovery goals.

You will take part in a mix of individual, group and wellbeing sessions. With these sessions, you will gain the knowledge and self-belief to cope with your addiction in the outside world and achieve long-term recovery.

Therapies such as motivational therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, acupuncture and stress management are on offer as part of your bespoke addiction treatment programme.


Life After Rehab

The period immediately after completing drug and alcohol rehab is a time of transition. You exit our doors and find yourself back in the outside world, sober. Your relationships, responsibilities and livelihood are all things you have to face again – even possibly repair.

Many people leaving rehab are scared of this moment and worry if the damage they’ve done is irreparable. It’s not. You’ve got the help you need, and you can now begin the rest of your life free of addiction.

We at Rehab Clinics Group understand that this can be an overwhelming time. To help you through it, we offer a 12-month aftercare package. Devised by our aftercare specialists, this aftercare plan will be catered for you – providing a roadmap through your first year of sobriety. With aftercare, you can build on the coping techniques and skills you learned during your treatment, increasing the chances of relapse prevention.

Aftercare is centred around attending weekly support meetings with your peers. You will hopefully form long-lasting relationships and build a support network through these meetings. Making these connections with people who understand your struggles will make you see you are not alone and have friends to turn to in dark moments.

As most relapses occur within the first few months of leaving rehab, you must engage with your aftercare plan.

  • Can I refer a family member to drug and alcohol rehab?

    Yes, absolutely. Rehab clinics group offers a family and friend referral service for those worried about their loved one’s substance abuse. Our dedicated team can help family members through this difficult time, offering advice and guidance on the next steps to take. Throughout this process and beyond, we offer family drug support as we understand that addiction affects many people beyond the addict.
  • What is a medically assisted detox?

    Drug or alcohol detox is the process of slowly and safely removing the harmful toxins from your body caused by substances. This is done so that physically you are no longer dependent on the harmful substances and can begin to function without them. Medication is administered to help ease the worst of the withdrawal symptoms you will experience when detoxing. It is a safe process and gives you a much better chance at long-term recovery, rather than going cold turkey.
  • How do I begin my path to recovery?

    If you have recognised that you are an addict, then you’ve already taken the first step. That in itself is a victory that many people cannot face up to. After you’ve done that it is best to do some research on how you wish to undergo treatment. Do you want to undergo treatment on an inpatient or outpatient basis? Do you want to go private or with the NHS? It may seem overwhelming but reaching out to a friend or family member for help or contacting one of our team at Rehab Clinics Group is a positive next step.
