Alcohol is a toxin that most of us have tried in our lives. And whilst some of us enjoy a tipple more than others, alcohol can have an impact on your health when consumed in large quantities. Alcohol is a stimulant, and, therefore, often elevates blood pressure and heart rate,…Read More
Drug and alcohol abuse is on the rise, with some severe consequences. These include some significant and potentially life-threatening health problems. Untreated alcoholism can lead to conditions such as liver cirrhosis, potential risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and psychological conditions. It may also attack the immune system, creating short-term illnesses and problems.
If you do notice these symptoms, you should immediately seek help. An ideal port of call is to talk to your GP. They can register the problem and give you a medical check. However, for long-term success, drug and alcohol rehabilitation is the best option. What if you don’t know if you need rehab? This question comes up often. However, what is important to remember is that any addiction, mild or severe, will need therapy to overcome.
Signs You Need Treatment for Substance Abuse
There are some attitudes or circumstances that can serve as clues. If you are unsure if you need help, you may need to look deeper. The common symptoms of addiction may not be enough to determine if you need help. After all, each addiction is different because each person is different. It also depends on the addiction stage, how much and what you consume, and how long.
Some of the following psychological signs must not be ignored:
- Family problems
- Friendship problems
- Guilt, worry
- Low self-esteem/ lack of motivation
- Financial problems
- Work problems/ losing job
The above symptoms may be connected to your alcohol and drug addiction. Once you have determined this is the case, alcohol and drug rehabilitation is the best route. Detox is the preferred first phase of treatment as this will help remove the toxins from the body. This must not be undertaken without professional help as it can be very dangerous and cause serious health emergencies.

Detox for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Duston
Detoxification is a process that neutralises physical dependence and removes toxins from the body. This is the first goal of treatment, and once this is complete, in a medical environment, you can focus on the psychotherapies on offer.
Our drug and alcohol detoxification methods are applied, within a strict medical setting, with a professional team on hand. A subsequent intervention involves pharmacological treatment to avoid any unnecessary withdrawal symptoms. This process will be made as comfortable for you as possible, and this will aid your recovery. An alcohol and drug detox usually lasts around seven days. Then you will have been thoroughly evaluated psychologically; your therapies will be based on these findings.
The psychotherapies on offer heavily focus on mental well being, including family scenarios and socio-environmental circumstances. It focuses on discovering the reason for your addiction and the possible triggers. These treatments also address anxiety, depression, trauma, and psychotic episodes, including delusions and schizophrenia.
Some of the most common treatments available are CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), group and individual counselling, art therapy, one-to-one chats, workshops and more. Every element of your health is considered, focusing on assistance with your diet, sleep patterns and energy. You will find a new lease of life, all whilst having 24/7 assistance and care.
Benefits of Private Rehab
Private rehab offers you the motivation to change. It is a dedicated and specialised place which is safe, secure and optimistic. Public or outpatient rehab does not offer the level of dedication and insensitivity which often leads to relapses.

Relapse prevention is another vital element of private rehab proposed as a comprehensive plan. We will ensure that you remain by our side until you’re ready, even after you leave our clinic. Private rehab seeks to remove compulsive behaviour and reshape your psychological traits. Some of the best benefits of private rehab are:
