What Causes Drug and Alcohol Addiction?

There are no clear answers to the causes of addiction as each person’s reasons for turning to drugs and alcohol can be different. There are factors that may make it more likely for a person to have a drug addiction or alcohol problem.

  • Family History

If you grew up in a household where heavy drinking or drug taking was present you may be more likely to become addicted too. It could be that these practices have been normalised or encouraged through the years and you grow up to copy your parents or older family members. Soon, it becomes too late to see how destructive these habits are.

  • Environment

Other environmental factors can be reasons for addiction. Binge drinking can be a staple at university and is often glorified so you may develop an addiction there. People in high-paying and stressful jobs, such as company executives, drink and take drugs to relax and keep up with the demands of their day.

  • Mental Health

Mental illness can sometimes play a part in addiction. People that suffer from depression or anxiety may initially self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. For a time, it may work but eventually, this can worsen the conditions, causing you to fall into a spiral of abusing substances more to try and gain the same “positive” effects.

  • Physical Pain

People in chronic pain sometimes develop addictions to prescribed drugs and opiates. If the legal supply of painkillers is cut off, some turn to drugs like heroin to ease the pain they are feeling.

 

Long-Term Effects of Drug and Alcohol Abuse

There can be long-term psychological and physical effects of addiction.

Addiction often harms your mental health. Drinking and taking drugs can lead to long-lasting depression and anxiety. Many try to self-medicate these issues with alcohol and drugs but end up making them worse. As conditions such as depression worsen, it can lead to suicidal thoughts that might turn into suicide attempts.

If you have a genetic predisposition towards developing a mental health disorder such as psychosis, then drug and alcohol abuse can increase the risk of this happening in the future. Developing psychosis may cause you to harm yourself or others.

Physically, long-term drug use can affect your kidneys and the liver can be destroyed by alcoholism. Liver failure will eventually prove fatal. Addiction can also affect your heart, increasing your blood pressure and heart rate – which could result in heart failure.

Outside of your health, long-term drug and alcohol abuse can affect other aspects of your life. Spending more money on drugs and alcohol will mean you suffer financially and your addiction may cause your work performance to suffer – resulting in you losing your job. Your changing attitudes and priorities may cause friendships and relationships to break down.

Before the situation worsens and these effects become reality, you should consider going to alcohol or drug rehab.

 

Residential Treatment: The Most Successful Treatment

A private drug and alcohol rehab like Ocean Recovery offers residential treatment. This is when you move into the facility for the duration of your addiction treatment programme. We believe it is the most effective form of addiction treatment and holds many benefits.

Structure and Professional Help

Residential rehab provides a structure to your life that you have been missing. Life before coming to rehab could have been a bit chaotic and it can be good to know what to expect from life day to day. During this time in rehab, you will be around staff who can provide the care you need.

Range of Treatments

We provide psychological and well-being therapies and a detox programme to help you. The range of treatments cannot be matched by the NHS and will make up a personalised treatment plan suited to your needs.

A New Environment

A change of scenery could be just what you need. At Ocean Recovery you will have the chance to take a step back and reflect. Our locale and facilities will give you everything you need to get in a better head space and focus on your recovery.

 

What Treatments are Available at Ocean Recovery

The first stage of recovery will be detox. During this process, you will stop taking drugs or drinking to allow your body to heal and flush the harmful toxins from your body. The process takes from 7-10 days and you will be under constant care.

Drug detox and alcohol detox are nearly identical processes. The only difference is the medication you could be administered if your withdrawal symptoms are severe enough.

Our therapies exist to help you delve deeper into your addiction. Psychoeducation and addiction counselling can help you understand the condition better and learn how to break the cycle. CBT-based group sessions will help build your self-confidence and learn coping skills to help you after you leave rehab.

Making use of well-being treatments such as yoga, mindfulness and daily wellness walks can help improve your mental health and make you less vulnerable to mental health issues like depression and anxiety.

 

What Happens After Completing Treatment?

The time immediately after leaving rehab is crucial. This period is when most relapses occur so it is important to remain vigilant.

Aftercare can help you stay on top of your addiction and provide crucial support. Attending weekly support meetings can help you stay connected to people also recovering from addiction. Making these regular connections is important as you can build a network that lasts for many years.

At Ocean Recovery, we hold meetings twice a week. One is self-facilitated and the other is guided by a therapist. You can attend these meetings in person or dial in over Zoom if you are not local to the area.
