What Symptoms Will I Experience If I Have an Addiction?
Addictions cause a wealth of signs and symptoms to arise. Although many symptoms are temporary, the severity of an addiction can cause long-term symptoms to be experienced.
Long-term symptoms are often psychological and have a much more detrimental impact on those battling an addiction.
If you have become addicted to a substance, you are likely to experience symptoms that impair your behaviour, physical well-being and psychological state.
Below, we have outlined just a few of the symptoms that you are likely to encounter.
Physical Symptoms of Addiction;
- – Sickness
- – Headaches
- – Weight loss or weight gain
- – Lack of appetite
- – Lack of personal hygiene
Psychological Symptoms of Addiction;

Behavioural Symptoms of Addiction;

Regardless of whether you think your addiction is severe enough to obtain treatment or not, if you experience any of the above symptoms, you should seek support from a drug and alcohol rehab in Sevenoaks.
What Withdrawal Symptoms Will I Experience?
Although it is not advised, many individuals will attempt to withdraw from a substance on their own.
In many cases, this is because they do not believe they are addicted to a substance and are under the impression that they can stop administering a substance at any given time.
As and when an individual attempts to withdraw from a substance at home, withdrawal symptoms will be experienced. Without medical assistance, withdrawal symptoms can be somewhat unbearable.
Often, the symptoms experienced are so unpleasant that an individual will once again turn to drugs or alcohol to soothe them. Unfortunately, this forms the basis of relapse.
If you have attempted to withdraw from drugs or alcohol on your own, you will likely have experienced the following symptoms;
- – Sickness
- – Muscle pain
- – High temperature
- – Fatigue
- – Insomnia
- – Unpleasant thoughts
- – Contact headaches
- – Sweating
- – Heart palpitations
- – Heightened anxiety or depression
- – Feeling paranoid
- – Confusion
- – Extreme irritability
- – Intense cravings
If you have experienced any of the above symptoms, or are currently experiencing them, we would urge you to contact us. Without professional support, you may relapse and find yourself struggling to control your addiction.
Will My Friends and Family Be Able to Tell That I Have an Addiction?
While you may have tried to keep your addiction a secret from your friends, family and loved ones, over time, they are likely to observe changes in your behaviour and physical appearance.
Said changes may cause them to become worried that you are unwell or experiencing an illness that you are yet to discuss with them. With this in mind, it is entirely normal for those around you to become concerned.
This may cause them to ask questions and try to determine what is wrong with you. If you are not yet ready to discuss your addiction with them, this can lead you to experience a great deal of stress. It can also heighten feelings of anxiety.
Although you may be hesitant about talking to your nearest and dearest about your addiction, doing so can provide you with the support that is needed to overcome your addiction.
If you are unsure of how to discuss your addiction with your loved ones, we can support you. As and when you are ready to contact us to discuss your addiction, we can offer advice on how to inform your loved ones of your struggles.
How Do I Know When It Is Time to Go to Rehab?
Determining whether or not it is time to go to rehab is something that many individuals will overthink.
However, treatment is advised as soon as any signs and symptoms that an addiction is present have come to light. Like with all illnesses, the sooner treatment is sought, the better the outcomes of recovery are.
If you are battling an addiction and are unsure as to whether it is time to go to rehab, it is worth contacting either a drug and alcohol rehab in Sevenoaks or our residential rehab.
In doing so, you will have the opportunity to discuss your addiction, the signs and symptoms you experience and the severity of your addiction.
From here, the admissions team will have the ability to determine whether rehabilitation treatment is required. They will also be able to inform you of the treatment that is available to you.
As you consider rehab, you must be ready to commit to a long-term recovery. You must want to overcome your addiction and leave drugs and alcohol firmly in your past.
If you can honestly say that you are ready to embark on the recovery journey, this is another indication that it is time to go to rehab.
