Let’s have a look at some of the symptoms of drug and alcohol addiction and how you can start on your road to recovery with Ocean Recovery Centre.
Do You Have a Drug or Alcohol Problem?
Unfortunately, addictions to alcohol and drugs in the United Kingdom are easier to hide than you might believe. Many people are silently suffering from the illness and don’t know how to seek help. Others don’t even realise that they have a problem, and their behaviour might be seen as normal in a social circle which doesn’t know how to spot some of the key symptoms of addiction.
Signs of Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol abuse affects each person differently and there are many various forms of addiction. That being the case, there are also different symptoms of alcohol abuse. Here are some of the most common ones to be aware of:
- Making regular excuses to include alcohol, whatever the scenario. Often addicts will use alcohol to ‘help them relax’ and ‘feel normal’;
- Drinking alone and with no social occasion to be drinking;
- Becoming extremely irritable and short-tempered when you don’t have alcohol in your system;
- Deciding to drink alcohol instead of meeting any social or work responsibilities.
If you are suffering from any of the symptoms above, then you might have to consider your relationship with alcohol.
Signs of Drug Addiction
Similarly, the tell-tale signs of drug abuse vary from person to person. For some, it’s very easy to hide their addiction and they’ll be able to consume substances away from close family and friends. For others, there are very obvious physical changes and somebody under the grips of addiction can seem like a different person entirely. These are some of the most common symptoms:
- Physical symptoms such as weight loss, red, bloodshot eyes and irregular sleeping patterns;
- Significant changes in a person’s behaviour. Drug addicts can be irritable, depressed and in some extreme cases, can even become involved in crime;
- Isolation and secret activities, choosing to spend time alone and avoiding any social events;
- A lack of physical coordination and seizures which become more regular.
If your loved one or family member shows signs of any of the above, then you have reason to be concerned. If they can’t admit that they have a problem, you can still get in touch with our team and together we can help them realise the situation they are in.
The Road to Recovery
If you’ve finally accepted that you have a serious drug and alcohol addiction problem, then we can help you on the road to recovery. Your journey isn’t a straightforward one but we can help you through each stage of your healing.
After getting in touch with our Welwyn Garden City team you’ll have a telephone assessment in full confidentiality. Then, after a physical assessment and detailed mental health analysis, you’ll be given an arrival date for our rehab facility.
Even the thought of rehabilitation can be a challenge for those who have reached ‘rock bottom’, and the detox phase is often the most challenging part. Once you’ve completed this your body will be free from drugs and alcohol: next, we remove them from your mind.
Time with addiction counsellors and support groups will make up the majority of your treatment plan. However, each treatment plan is unique to the patient and your personalised treatment programme could also include family therapy sessions and cognitive behavioural therapy. Some users will benefit from clinics offering time with former addicts, while other patients will enjoy the peace of yoga and exercise.
Your recovery from addiction is possible and once you leave our facilities you’ll have the tools you need to avoid triggers which caused any substance abuse in the first place.

It’s difficult to put a value on the cost of rehab. How much would you pay to have a healthy life again? What’s the price of healthy relationships, financial security and the ability to work again? The NHS is stretched beyond its limit and although it does have some addiction treatment options, there are long waiting lists and overworked staff.
Drug and alcohol rehab in Welwyn Garden City isn’t easy, but with Ocean Recovery Centre you’re giving yourself the best possible chance. Once you’ve left our treatment centre you’ll have a free aftercare plan which helps to keep you on the right track. Regular check-ups with our team also help to make sure that you aren’t returning to any bad habits. You’ll have a deeper understanding of your mental health and what caused your addiction in the first place. With our timetabled check-ups you’ll have specific targets to aim for and before you know it, you’ll be living a healthy and balanced life without the struggles of the past.
You are not alone on your journey to a full recovery. You are neither the first nor the last person to suffer from this dangerous illness and we can help.
