Signs and Symptoms of Drug and Alcohol Addiction
We appreciate how difficult it can be to acknowledge that yourself or a loved one is suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs. We often find that people are in denial about their addiction, making it even harder for them to accept that they need professional support.
This is why it’s so important to be familiar with the common signs and symptoms which could indicate a drug or alcohol addiction. Many people who are suffering from drug or alcohol addiction believe that they’re only hurting themselves and struggle to see what impact their behaviours have on the people around them.
The physical signs of addiction include bloodshot eyes, skin sores, a gaunt appearance, and significant weight loss or weight gain. The psychological impact of addiction is just as, if not more severe than the physical impact. You may notice increased depression, anxiety, loneliness, low self-esteem, or suicidal thoughts.
In addition to all of these signs and symptoms, addiction to alcohol or drugs also leaves you much more susceptible to long-term mental health issues, diabetes, stroke, heart disease and liver disease.
Other signs and symptoms of addiction could include a change in behaviour, feeling isolated from friends and family, having difficulty remembering things particularly short term, lying about or hiding your substance misuse, losing interest in your appearance and personal hygiene, secretly consuming drugs or alcohol at any given chance, stealing to fund your substance misuse, feeling withdrawal symptoms when alcohol or drugs aren’t consumed, and joining a new social circle who encourage substance misuse.
We deliver a variety of physical, psychological and well-being therapies at our alcohol and drug rehab. Most commonly utilised for breaking your physical connection to the substance is drug and alcohol detoxification.
This is key to most people’s rehabilitation as it cleanses your system by gradually reducing your consumption of alcohol or drugs in a safe and controlled way until you’re no longer consuming the substance.
The importance of Relapse Prevention
Some of the psychological therapies we frequently deliver include stress management, individual, group or family counselling, psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), and relapse prevention.
Drug or alcohol relapse prevention is a crucial tool to take home with you once you’ve completed your treatment programme at our rehab clinic. Our expert team can help you to identify the underlying reasons of your addiction to alcohol or drugs so that you’re able to recognise your triggers and avoid any potential relapses.
If you do suffer from a drug or alcohol relapse, it’s important to not become disheartened as this is actually more common that you think. However, it’s crucial that you take part in the relapse prevention sessions that our team will deliver as this is the best way to learn how to avoid a relapse.
Receiving Aftercare once leaving Rehab
Ensuring that you receive the appropriate aftercare once you’ve completed your residential or outpatient rehab is crucial to your long-term recovery. We personalise all of our aftercare plans just as we personalise all of our treatment plans.
At our drug and alcohol rehab Archway, aftercare is provided to all of our clients free of charge for 12 months to give you the best guidance along your road to recovery.
Our experience has shown us that the first 12 months after completing your treatment programme is the most challenging and the time when you’re most likely to relapse. Adapting to your new behaviours and changing your lifestyle can take some getting used to, therefore ongoing support is essential.
Our dedicated aftercare team can arrange sessions with local support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. These group therapy sessions can be daunting for some people, but we really want to emphasise the advantages of sharing your experiences with others in a similar situation to you; it really does help your recovery process.
In addition to these support groups, we also provide support helplines alongside additional therapy sessions such as relapse prevention or cognitive behavioural therapy should you need it.
Whatever addiction you’re suffering from, no matter how long you’ve been living with it for, we’re confident that our drug and alcohol rehab Archway can help you to give up alcohol or drugs once and for all.
Is a Drug or Alcohol Detox essential?
We highly recommend a drug or alcohol detoxification for the majority of our clients. It’s the most effective way to remove the harmful toxins from your system, giving you the opportunity to cleanse before beginning your subsequent treatments.
Is Mental Health support included?
Certainly. It’s crucial that your mental health is always taken care of, particularly when you’re going through rehabilitation from alcohol and drugs. We regularly see people who are suffering from a drug addiction or alcohol addiction also suffering from mental health problems; it’s more common than you probably realise. Our fantastic team are expertly trained and well experienced in delivering treatment for addiction and also for mental health issues including dual diagnosis treatment.
How long does it take to complete Alcohol or Drug Rehab?
The length of your treatment varies depending on the nature of your drug or alcohol addiction as well as your personal circumstances. Usually, a comprehensive treatment plan will take around 28 days to complete, followed up with our personalised aftercare plan which is offered to everyone free of charge for 12 months after completing your rehab programme.
