Sedgley Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment Centres

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres in Sedgley

Unfortunately, there’s still a stigma attached to drug or alcohol addiction. Many people still wrongly perceive it to be a weakness or a choice, but we must realise the severe impact it has on thousands of people in the UK, not to mention all around the world.

Many have suffered loss of their home or their job, experienced relationships with family and friends fall apart, and even lost their life as a result of drug and alcohol abuse.

Addiction is such an awful and complex condition; it requires the expert support of addiction specialists within a residential drug and alcohol rehab setting to effectively overcome.

Not only does drug and alcohol abuse have a damaging impact on your physical health as it significantly increases your risk of developing liver disease, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, it also has a devastating impact on your mental health as the toxins included within alcohol or drugs leave you much more susceptible to bipolarity, depression, anxiety, and even suicide.

If you’ve been suffering from these awful effects of addiction for some time now or if you’ve only begun to feel the effects, it doesn’t matter. Our drug and alcohol rehab Sedgley is here to help you no matter what stage you’re at with your addiction.

We can offer you expert knowledge, evidence-based therapies, and luxurious accommodation as you undergo your drug and alcohol treatment. We’ve helped countless people achieve their long-term recovery goals and lead a happier, healthier life free; let us now help you.

 

How do you know if you’re ready for Drug and Alcohol Treatment?

It’s our instinct as humans to hide anything what we perceive to be a weakness. This is frequently seen within people who are suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs as they attempt to hide their symptoms from their loved ones, and even from themselves. Accepting that you have a problem which requires professional support can be extremely difficult.

If you’re still not convinced whether or not drug and alcohol treatment is necessary for you or if you’re unsure whether or not a loved one could benefit from professional addiction treatment, these are some common signs to look for.

  • Have you lost control over your drinking or drug taking?
  • Are you constantly craving alcohol or drugs?
  • Do you consume alcohol or drugs during the day or at other unsuitable times?
  • Have you increased your consumption in order to get the desired effect from the substance?
  • Have you experienced physical or psychological problems as a result of substance abuse?
  • Has substance abuse caused you to miss an important event?
  • Are you constantly thinking about where your next ‘fix’ is coming from?
  • Do you suffer from drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms when you’re not consuming?
  • Have your relationships with loved ones become strained?
  • Are you trying to keep your drug and alcohol abuse a secret from your loved ones?

If any of the above are true, we strongly suggest that you contact our rehab in Sedgley immediately. Whether that’s for yourself or for a loved one using our family and friend referral service.

 

Are poor Mental Health and Drug or Alcohol Addiction connected?

As a recognised and dedicated drug and alcohol rehab, we’re very proud of our high success rates, however, there’s still a huge amount of awareness to be raised around the impact and the causes of drug or alcohol addiction in the UK; we can always be doing more. Drug and alcohol abuse is still prevalent and continues to dramatically affect many people’s lives each year.

When we look at mental health and addiction to alcohol or drugs together, you’re actually 50% more likely to develop a drug or alcohol addiction if you’re suffering from poor mental health.

Similarly, if you’re addicted to alcohol or drugs, you’re much more prone to developing a mental health issue as a result of the damage that excessive drug and alcohol abuse causes your psychological well-being.

Our rehabilitation centre in Sedgley places a great focus on supporting our client’s mental health as they go through addiction treatment, particularly if you’re suffering from a dual diagnosis.

This means that you’re living with both an addiction and poor mental health and is treated using our dual diagnosis treatment which is much more common than you probably think.

We have years of experience in helping countless people with these co-occurring conditions come out the other side free from both their addiction and their mental health problems.

 

Benefit from our Friend and Family Referral Service

We offer a very effective friend and family referral service at our rehab in Sedgley. It’s helped many people encourage their loved ones to receive support by joining an addiction treatment programme.

It can be very hard to get your friend or family member to open up about their addiction, it’s only natural for them to downplay their symptoms and try to hide it from you.

If this is the case, you must do all that you can to try and convince them to open up and seek professional support. Your encouragement could be the movement that makes a real difference to their well-being and ultimately whether or not they overcome their debilitating addiction.

 

Take advantage of our Drug or Alcohol Aftercare Plan

Our excellent team will continue to support you with plenty of advice and additional therapy sessions as required when you leave our drug and alcohol rehab.

It’s likely that you’ll benefit from ongoing relapse prevention sessions as this can be very challenging once you return home where distractions and negative influences could be present.
