Drug and Alcohol abuse in the UK has always been a long standing problem. With many individuals using both substances as a way to enjoy themselves without taking into account any potential consquences that can come with continued use of drugs and/or alcohol.
The use of drugs in the UK is for the most part illegal although the number of individuals suffering from drug addictions is rising each year, there are many factors that can be attributed to the rises such as more awareness surrounding addiction related issues, the growing illegal drug trafficking network in the UK and changing opinions on drug use.
Alcohol use in the UK is showing no signs of slowing down as it remains completely legal with very limited restrictions but on it’s use in England. The UK has a long history with alcohol abuse with drinking alcohol mostly viewed as a positive activity, and in most cases, when drunk in moderation, it can do no harm and be an enjoyable social activity. However, there is clearly a dark side to alcohol use that not many people see. Alcohol can do little harm when drank in small amounts – but in larger amounts, it has the potential to ruin your life.
Regular alcohol abuse can lead to serious health issues, ranging from severe liver problems to tremors and death. The government releases a new guideline every few years on alcohol intake – and where the line between healthy use and unhealthy abuse is drawn. Yet – many people do not adhere to these guidelines. This is not due to choice, but alcohol is simply very addictive.
This is very apparent in the city of Liverpool, which was named the worse in the UK for drug admissions to hospitals. In 2014/15 the city had 12,000 alcohol related hospital admissions with 243 deaths relating to alcohol in 2015.

The Effects Addiction Has On The Brain
Once you become dependent on drugs and/or alcohol, you will see a rapid change in your mood and mental state of mind when the desired effects of the substance you are using wears off.
There are a few reasons for this, as there already may be underlying causes for your abuse and dependence. People who suffer with depression and anxiety often self-medicate by drinking alcohol or taking drugs; this can lead to a vicious cycle. Users can experience decreased anxiety or depression in the short term, but prolong use actually lowers your natural serotonin levels which regulates the happy feeling in the brain. Meaning the next day you would feel worse and your body can only return to a normal state by giving it the harmful substance that it is now become dependant on which in turn can have a more negative affect on an individuals mental health.

How Our Drug and Alcohol Rehab Liverpool Service Works
The first step towards becoming drug and alcohol free – is detoxing. Detoxification is the process of clearing all harmful toxins from your body, literally and figuratively. Prolonged use of drugs and/or alcohol means that your body is used theses substances being in your bloodstream. The only way to clear all harmful toxins from your body, is by completely stopping drug and alcohol intake, if your addiction is more severe then a more gradual reduction is also considered.
During detoxification you may experience withdrawal symptoms which can be quite uncomfortable. Depending on the severity of your addiction, the withdrawal symptoms can range from mild to severe.
- Mild symptoms include abdominal cramps, nausea and muscle/bone aches.
- Moderate symptoms include diarrhoea, fatigue and vomiting.
- Serious symptoms include increased anxiety, tremors, hypertension and a dangerously high heart rate. Prescription medication can be provided to help alleviate any of these symptoms.
It is for the above reasons that we would strongly recommend that no individual tries to detox at home as the consequences of this could be life threatening.
Upon successful completion of the detox stage you will be moved onto the next phase of rehab which is more focused towards healing the mind.
This stage involves daily counselling sessions with qualified therapists, regular support groups and several therapy sessions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT is designed to help you understand you mind better so you can have more control when exhibiting addictive behaviours. This will also help you with any cravings/triggers that you may experience when returning to normal life upon completion of your rehab programme.
We have a wide range of rehab plans available to residents in the Liverpool area with our experienced team committed to helping you build up a better life for yourself.
