Understanding Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Addiction is widely misunderstood and can cause conflicts between family and loved ones who don’t understand how addiction effects people. This is why it is so important to learn about the disease of addiction in order to be able to better support anyone suffering with a substance abuse problem.

For the families and loved ones of a person suffering from addiction, you will be able to better support and understand the person if you are educated about addiction. This is why we have linked a number of helpful resources at the bottom of this page.

It is also extremely valuable for anyone who is experimenting or starting to regularly consume drugs or alcohol to read our addiction resources. It is a common misconception that you won’t become addicted to a substance, when in reality, addiction can be experienced by anyone, regardless of age, gender, family history or social class.

Education is the best tool to combat substance addiction. Find out more at the bottom of this page or contact us today on 01253 847 553 to find out more about addiction.

Where to Get Help For Addiction

If you have determined that you or a loved one is suffering with a drug or alcohol addiction, it is important to seek treatment. Ongoing substance abuse causes both physical and psychological health problems which will likely become worse the longer an addiction lasts for.

Not only does substance addiction negatively affect your health, it can also ruin your social life. Addiction threatens your livelihood, including your relationships, your job and house security, as well as your safety.

It is important to receive rehab treatment if you have a drug or alcohol addiction. Residential rehab has been proven to be the most successful form of addiction treatment as it is intense and you are surrounded by support and the facilities you need to make a full recovery.

At Ocean Recovery, we offer state of the art treatments and have some of the best addiction recovery specialists in the UK. We offer intensive drug and alcohol detox programmes where you will be monitored and supported 24/7 by our recovery team. You will then be provided with proven therapies which aim to treat the mental side of alcohol and drug addiction, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Group Therapy, and Holistic therapies.
