The Liverpool Echo states “there were 278 people taken to hospital in the city in 2014/15 with drug related mental health or behavioural problems. This is equivalent to 58 people per 100,000 residents – the highest rate in England. There were also 228 people in Liverpool taken to hospital after suffering poisoning from illegal drugs in 2014/15”.

How do I know if Im addicted to Drugs and Alcohol?

Many drug and alcohol addicts often fail to realise that they indeed are struggling with an addiction. It’s very common to see people who are suffering from an addiction to alcohol drugs be in denial about their condition and downplay the impact of their substance abuse.

Once you find yourself struggling to stop taking drugs or alcohol, even if your level of consumption is clearly detrimental to your day-to-day life, it is very important that you are reading this.

The first step towards recovery is admitting that you are indeed addicted to drugs or alcohol, admitting this to yourself, to your loved ones and eventually to us at drug and alcohol rehab Merseyside.

Do you suspect that someone in your personal circle could be addicted to drugs or alcohol? If you’ve noticed a change in their behaviour but you’re not able to encourage them to open up, there are a few indicators that could point to drug or alcohol addiction.

These include:

  • They’re engaging in increasingly risky behaviours which is unlike them.
  • They’re experiencing financial trouble which could be a result of funding an expensive substance abuse habit.
  • They’re displaying isolating behaviours such as a lack of interest in socialising or participating in activities which they once enjoyed.
  • They have new friends or a new circle of people who encourage similar unhealthy habits making substance abuse appear as the norm.
  • Often, it is nearly impossible to tell if a person if suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs by simply looking at them. However, if you’re concerned about a close friend or family member, you may notice a significant change in their weight, a gaunt facial appearance, bloodshot eyes, or skin sores.

If you notice any of these behaviours in a loved one, it’s crucial that you’re there for them and encourage them to speak to you about what they’re going through. Whilst they may be reluctant to admit that they have an addiction to alcohol or drugs, they may just need you to listen.

If you feel as though they need urgent support, you can contact our rehab clinic in Merseyside and refer them to us through our family and friend referral service.

We can even arrange an intervention if necessary, to help them recognise what devastating effects they’re having on their own life and on the lives of those around them.

 

How our Merseyside Drug and Alcohol Rehab centre works

At our rehab clinic, we have a fantastic team of therapists and addiction counsellors, many of whom have been through the same thing as you have. Just like millions of other people, they have gone through difficult period, yet came out victorious.

At Ocean Recovery, we have the required expertise, necessary safety measures, and a tried and tested approach to treatment options which can help you overcome your substance abuse once and for all.

We often start with a drug or alcohol detoxification which can take up to ten days to completely cleanse your body from the substance. To add to that, you will also need to recover from the withdrawal symptoms that come with detox.

Withdrawal symptoms are very common during a drug and alcohol detox and can be managed safely with the correct guidance and expertise of our rehab team.

You may experience mild symptoms of nausea, dizziness, headaches, or you could suffer from severe withdrawal symptoms including insomnia, seizures or even delirium tremens for which you’ll need to receive treatment urgently.

We strongly advise against any attempt to detox at home without the supervision of a professional team. It’s vital that you detox in a safe environment with an excellent support group by your side.

After your detoxification, you’ll move onto your psychological therapies which could include cognitive behavioural therapy, relapse prevention, and individual, group or family counselling.

We can address any concerning mental health issues and are also experienced in treating a dual diagnosis if necessary.

This is where a person suffers from both an addiction to alcohol or drugs and problems with their mental health. It’s very common so we can assure you there’s no need to feel embarrassed about coming to us with a dual diagnosis.

One of our specialists will be helping you find the reason for your drug or alcohol addiction, and how to help you make changes in your thinking in order to prevent a relapse.

We also include 1 year’s free aftercare treatment plan with each of our packages which is crucial to supporting your ongoing treatment.
