What Causes Addiction
One of the main things we explore with our guests is what causes drug and alcohol addiction in the first place. This is a wide-ranging topic and no two cases are the same.
Most people aren’t aware that addiction is a medically diagnosed brain disease. Both your body and brain become dependent on either substances or alcohol, and the impact on your body both physically and psychologically can be devastating.
First of all, let’s take a look at what causes drug addiction. Drug addiction is defined as a mental disease which forces the user to compulsively chase a short-term ‘high’, despite being aware of the harm it may cause. Eventually, both the mind and the body become dependent on the substance intake.
Most people first try drugs through curiosity. Unfortunately, some people also first experiment with drugs as a result of peer pressure. Many of us have been in the presence of drugs, whether or not we’ve used them.
For some, the first experience of drugs can present the quick high they’ve been searching for – a short-term ‘euphoria’. Thereafter, it’s easy for experimentation to become habitual and for the addiction to begin.
For others, drugs are a way of dealing with mental health issues, emotional trauma and other diagnosable illnesses. High levels of addicts are also suffering from mental health issues.
It’s possible that you won’t even realise you are suffering from mental health problems such as depression, anxiety or bipolarity. Instead of speaking to a medical professional in a rehabilitation clinic and searching for a cure, you may think it’s an easier, quicker alternative if you self-medicate with drugs.
Regardless, drug addiction is a complex disease and there can be many root causes. Exposure to drug abuse during childhood, a lack of substance education and even genetics can all play a part in becoming addicted. If you’re suffering from drug and alcohol addiction close to the town of Scarborough, it’s important that you contact our rehab centre today.
Many scientists, biologists and even psychologists have invested time and money into several different studies to try and determine the root cause of alcohol addiction. As is the case with drug addiction, most studies have found that there is no one defining cause of alcohol addiction. Instead, there are a number of defining factors which cause a person to become dependent on alcohol.
Alcoholism is a disease which can affect anybody, regardless of their race, religion, age or body type. It’s more difficult to diagnose than drug addiction because often, and especially in the United Kingdom, binge drinking can hide it.
It’s believed that the defining factors contributing to alcohol addiction are environmental, biological, social and psychological. Unlike drug addiction, your chances of becoming addicted to alcohol can be influenced by your genetics. The attitude to alcohol in your family home and your surroundings can also have an important role in your involvement with alcohol. Social situations, such as peer pressure, can quickly turn a harmless few drinks into a dangerous addiction.
Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment
At Ocean Recovery Centre we believe that there’s a form of treatment for every addiction. That being the case, we believe that everybody suffering from addiction can be cured and that every one of us has a life worth living to the full.
After your unique and individual assessment, you’ll begin your recovery with the detox phase. This is the first and most difficult step in achieving a positive outcome through any rehabilitation clinic. As drugs and alcohol leave your body completely, we analyse the impact they’ve had on you physically and mentally. Your addiction counsellor will provide you with round-the-clock support and care as your body adapts to life without the substances it has come to depend on.
Thereafter, your treatment focuses on rehabilitation and understanding the causes of your addiction. With that knowledge, you’ll have the power to avoid returning to bad habits and the circumstances which led to addiction in the first place. Our thought pattern studies, behavioural analysis and intense cognitive behavioural therapies are all used to help you recover completely.
Doctors will provide a constant analysis to make sure that your body is recovering well and if you need further treatment, it’s prescribed immediately. Not only that, but your treatment plan is reviewed regularly. You’ll receive recognition for your achievements at the end of every week. You’ll also be able to learn from other guests and take advice from fully recovered, ex-addicts, creating a strong sense of worth.
