Drug and Alcohol Rehab Cinderford

There are numerous negative consequences for health, and the quality of life of those addicted will dwindle. Drugs and alcohol cause changes in brain chemistry and can cause physical changes. All of these changes can lead to numerous diseases.

We must first clarify that drug and alcohol addiction is a serious disease affecting people of all ages and backgrounds. The addict, may not fully comprehend the severity of the situation. They may not realise they are consuming too many toxic substances and, due to ignorance, cannot evaluate all its dimensions.

This unnatural and excessive attachment to the substance creates a tolerance in the brain chemistry, making you crave more. The only route out of alcohol and drug addiction is to go to rehab. If you leave an addiction untreated, many problems can occur. It can lead to poor life choices, job loss, financial troubles, mental and physical illness, and even overdose. Numerous mental health conditions often fuel addiction. Therefore if you can combat these issues, you can control the addiction.

 

What are the Dangers of Addiction?

Many addictions alter the brain chemistry, creating neurochemical and functional changes in the brain. Essentially, you may find your personality shifting, enthusiasm for life waning, and you may feel anxious or depressed. The effects of addiction give short-lived happiness or euphoria. You may pursue this habitually without noticing the inevitable consequences. Some of the known dangers are:

Physical Dangers

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Stroke
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Hepatitis B and C
  • Lung disease

Psychological Dangers

  • Paranoia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger issues
  • Hallucinations
  • Insomnia

Many social risks are also tied to addiction. Losing friends, relationship issues, and family troubles can cause stagnation in your life. You may feel there is little need to change or worry that nobody truly cares or understands. You will feel a perpetual doom, so reaching out for help is the best solution. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation is carried out in a professional clinic with a dedicated medical team, round-the-clock support, and care.

You should never try to tackle the addiction yourself without professional help. Many people believe they can successfully go “cold turkey”, which can lead to hospitalisation and potential death. Rehabilitation must be undertaken in a medical setting.

At Asana Lodge, you will have all the support you need to successfully wean off the toxic substance and re-engage with yourself. You will gain a positive mindset and a better outlook on life. Addiction prevents you from creating these positive thoughts.

What is a medically assisted detox?

Drug or alcohol detox is the process of slowly and safely removing the harmful toxins from your body caused by substances. Medication is administered to help ease the worst of the withdrawal symptoms you will experience when detoxing. It is a safe process and gives you a much better chance at long-term recovery, rather than going cold turkey.

What side effects could I experience during detoxification?

Side effects vary depending on the substance you are being weaned off and the severity of the addiction. Those undergoing detox can expect to experience withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, shakes, anxiety, trouble sleeping and increased sweating.
