Do you really need to join a Drug and Alcohol Rehab?
Our years of experience has shown us that many people who are suffering from a drug addiction or alcohol addiction, try to hide the affects from their loved ones, they could even be in denial that they have a problem at all.
This can make it very difficult for friends or family to recognise that someone needs professional help and makes it harder for the person in question to admit it themselves. However, there are some common signs to look out for which could indicate that they need to seek immediate support.
- – Changing relationships: Close relationships with friends or family can take a real hit when someone is dealing with the challenges of substance abuse. Their addiction tends to take sole focus above anything else that was once important to them. This fixation puts a huge strain on relationships and has the potential to tear families apart.
- – Psychological health: When someone is abusing alcohol or drugs for an extended period of time, it will have a significant impact on their mental health. The toxins included in these substances are so damaging, they can completely alter the make-up of your brain. This damage leaves you at much higher risk of anxiety, depression, bipolarity, and even suicide.
- – Physical health: A deterioration in physical appearance is probably the most noticeable sign that someone is suffering from an addiction. Substance abuse severely damages your internal organs leaving you at high risk of diabetes, liver disease, heart disease, and stroke. Drugs or alcohol can also leave the user looking very unhealthy with gaunt, pale skin or bloodshot eyes.
- – Professional career: Your performance at work is likely to be affected as your ability to function is negatively impacted from the physical and psychological effects of substance abuse. This deterioration in performance could potentially lead you to lose your job.
- – Difficulty financially: It’s extremely expensive to fund an addiction to alcohol or drugs, particularly if you’re concerned about losing your job. The more addicted you become and the longer your addiction lasts, the more difficult your financial situation will become.
There is no easy way to recover from a drug addiction or alcohol addiction, you need to be prepared to put in the hard work, but you’ll be rewarded with a much happier life free from addiction as a result.
What is a Dual Diagnosis, and do we treat it?
Many people aren’t aware of just how common it is for someone to be suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs, and mental health issues at the same time; this is what we call a dual diagnosis, and we see it very regularly.
There is such a strong connection between your psychological well-being and your addiction. Whichever condition may be more prevalent, they both need equal attention to help you recover.
In some cases, people see drug or alcohol abuse as a coping mechanism to help with their poor mental health. In other cases, people could have developed poor mental health as a result of excessive substance abuse.
Either way, it’s important that you know there’s specialist support out there for you. It’s fantastic to see that here in the UK, awareness for mental health is rising. It’s such an important topic for us to be talking about which will in turn help those who are suffering to open up and seek essential support.
The same must continue to be done for drug and alcohol addiction. They’re very complex conditions which seem to have many misconceptions surrounding them.
Addiction isn’t a weakness or something to be ashamed of, by speaking up and seeking help with your addiction, you’re taking an extremely brave and important step in improving your life and the lives of those around you.
What happens after you leave our Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab?
The prospect of returning home after spending approx. 28 days at our rehab in the Isle of Wight can seem quite daunting. We’d hope that after completing your drug and alcohol rehab treatments with us, you’ll feel more prepared than ever to continue your recovery journey at home, using the tools and advice we’ve provided you with.
However, our support will continue in the form of a free 12-month aftercare programme which includes dedicated helplines, additional therapy sessions, and ongoing relapse prevention should you need it.
Adjusting your new behaviours into your lifestyle can be quite a challenge, our team will always be here to support you in any way that they can. We also recommend taking advantage of local support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous to share your experiences with others who are in a similar situation to you.
