Chronic Stress Treatment
Whether it be a result of problems at home, conflict in the workplace, finances or demanding responsibilities, stress is inevitable.
Although many individuals find it easy to manage stress, 74% of people in the United Kingdom find themselves unable to cope with the stress they face. Sadly, this has seen stress become a significant health problem and in some cases, the reason behind drug and alcohol addiction.
As stress continues to have negative repercussions, the demand for treatment has soared. However, due to extended waiting times for treatment, many are unable to secure the help they need when they need it.
Regrettably, when stress is not effectively managed, chronic stress can arise. This can also lead to drug and alcohol addiction for people who use substances as a way to self-medicate the symptoms of chronic stress. Chronic stress can also occur as a result of addiction, as the cycle of substance abuse can have major psychological effects on users.
Without dual diagnosis treatment for addiction and chronic stress, those suffering are at greater risk of developing physical and psychological illnesses.
Chronic stress and substance addictions have been cited as one of the many reasons that individuals contemplate suicide. If you constantly feel overwhelmed, unable to cope, and under pressure, dual diagnosis treatment will help you regain control of your thoughts and feelings.
In turn, you will have the ability to live a happy, healthy and stress-free life.

Although antidepressants are usually prescribed for chronic stress, other medications may be provided.
Attending a Private Rehab for Chronic Stress and Addiction Treatment
Although many health care providers, such as the NHS and mental health charities offer support, guidance and treatment for chronic stress and addiction, private rehabilitation is much more advantageous when considering dual diagnosis treatment.
With this in mind, we welcome you to take advantage of the dual diagnosis treatment we can provide you with at our residential rehab.
Unlike other facilities, we focus on restoring and healing the body and brain through a number of scientifically proven techniques. We also ensure that all of our treatments are tailored to the personal needs of each individual that enters our rehab.
