Being able to admit that you have an alcohol and drug addiction is a very difficult and very brave thing to do. We often see people in denial about their substance misuse as it’s wrongly seen by many as a weakness. It’s for this reason that those who are suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol struggle to open up and ask for help. Despite this, seeking out professional help is crucial if you ever want to live a life free from substance abuse. Now is the time to take the first step towards creating a better future for yourself and for your loved ones.
By contacting our friendly admissions team at our drug and alcohol rehab Tile Cross, you can begin your journey to recovery with a dedicated support team by your side. Whether you’re seeking help for yourself or if you’re concerned about a loved one who could be suffering from addiction, our rehab centre is here to help.
There are some common signs and symptoms which may help you to recognise when a friend or family member is suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. Are they avoiding socialisation or have their behaviours significantly changed in an unusual way? Do you think that they might be going through unprecedented financial difficulties that’s potentially linked to funding an expensive habit like substance misuse? Maybe they’ve made a new circle of friends who are influencing them in a bad way?
In addition to these behavioural changes, you may have noticed changes with their physical appearance such as skin sores, drastic weight changes, or a pale appearance. They could be experiencing increased depression or anxiety as a result of their drug and alcohol addiction, making them seem like a very different person to what you once knew. If any of these signs resonate with you about yourself or a loved one, then there’s no time to waste when it comes to contacting our drug and alcohol rehab Tile Cross.

Drugs or Alcohol Addiction Treatment Options
It’s important that you know what treatment services are available to you when you’re searching for the most effective rehab centre for your unique needs. One of the first treatment services that attract people is addiction treatment offered by free local health services like the NHS. Whilst this option is appealing because it’s free, it’s not likely to be the most effective option for you.
Free addiction treatment doesn’t typically produce the greatest success rate because they’re so limited on resources and funding. This means they’re only able to offer a generic addiction treatment programme whereas it’s been proven that a ‘one fits all’ approach doesn’t work very well when it comes to rehab treatment for alcohol and drug addiction.
The other treatment service that’s available is private drug and alcohol rehab. Whilst there’s a cost associated with private drug and alcohol rehab, you’ll truly be receiving the best value for money as you benefit from exceptional care and evidence-based therapies within a high-specification facility. Joining a private rehab centre from the offset will likely save you time and money in the long run as you’ll have the greatest chance of achieving a long-term recovery with our drug and alcohol rehab Tile Cross.
Detoxification for Drugs or Alcohol
We highly recommend a detox when going through rehab for alcohol and drug addiction. Detoxification has proven to be the most effective way to break your physical connection to the substance. With the support of our expert team, we can help you to gradually reduce your consumption of drugs or alcohol in a safe and controlled environment. Despite highly recommending a drug or alcohol detox, you’ll likely experience withdrawal symptoms ranging from mild nausea, headaches, or dizziness to the more severe withdrawal symptoms of insomnia, seizures, or delirium tremens (the DT’s).
Once you’ve completed your detoxification, you’ll take on your psychological and well-being therapies which may include cognitive behavioural therapy (also known as CBT), stress management, relapse prevention, counselling, relaxation and sleep management, art workshops, fitness therapy, mindfulness, and yoga.
Help your loved ones overcome addiction
Watching a loved one live with the physical and psychological pain that addiction causes is extremely challenging. If you suspect that a friend or family member may be suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs, you may have noticed a significant change in their behaviours or in their general well-being.
It’s difficult to know where to begin when you want to help a loved one overcome their battle with addiction. If this is the case for you, then we highly recommend taking advantage of our family and friend referral service or our intervention service to help your loved ones see that they’re not only having a negative impact on their life but on your life too; these services have proven to be very successful in encouraging those in need to seek out professional help.
Personalised Drug and Alcohol Aftercare
We’re proud to offer a free aftercare service to all of our clients for 12 months after leaving our drug and alcohol rehab Tile Cross. These first 12 months after completing your addiction treatment is the most difficult for a lot of our clients as you adjust to your new behaviours. We have a dedicated aftercare team to provide you with motivation, accountability, and compassion as you navigate your road to recovery.
A focus of your aftercare programme will be on relapse prevention as we want to avoid going back to the substance as much as possible. You will have access to dedicated helplines so that you can contact us whenever you need to. We can also deliver ongoing therapy sessions including cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management, or individual, group or family counselling as needed.
How To Help A Family Member With Addiction?
Staging a family intervention in order to convince someone to get help can be a big step. Also, if it is not done correctly, with care, compassion, and professional guidance, then you only risk pushing your loved one further away. Addiction Advocates can provide assistance and advice with family and friend referrals, so reach out to us for guidance before trying to stage an alcohol intervention or substance abuse intervention.
How To Achieve Long-Term Sobriety?
Long-term sobriety can only be realised by addressing the behavioural and/or emotional issues that underpin your addiction. Psychological addiction treatment and treatment which teaches you how to express your internalised emotions means you will turn to drugs and/or alcohol less. When you figure out the primary course of your addiction, only then can you hope to keep your addiction at bay for the long term.
Can addiction be cured?
Sadly, addiction cannot be fully cured. However, what you learn in rehab is how to control your addiction and how to keep the prospect of relapse under firm control. After a while, controlling your urges will become second nature and you will be back to enjoying your everyday life free from addiction in no time.
