Symptoms of Addiction
You may be reading this and are unsure if you are addicted to a substance. The symptoms of addiction can vary from person to person depending on many factors including the substance they are addicted to, their medical history and age. Here are some common psychological, behavioural and physical symptoms to be aware of.
Common psychological symptoms:
• Agitation and increased temper
• Mood swings
• Low self-esteem
Common behavioural and social symptoms:
• Continuing addiction despite the negative effects
• Being more secretive and dishonest
• Financial difficulties and legal issues
• Withdrawing from socialising
• Losing interest in activities that don’t revolve around your addiction
Common physical symptoms:
• Disrupted sleep pattern
• Lack of hygiene/care in personal appearance
• Withdrawal symptoms start when you attempt to stop drinking or taking drugs
• Change in appetite
• Weakened immune system (more susceptible to colds and flu etc)
• Sexual dysfunction
If you let your addiction persist, long-term health issues can occur, such as liver damage and heart trouble. If you are experiencing some of these symptoms and are worried about your alcohol or drug intake then it may be time to seek professional help.
The Admissions Process
At Asana Lodge, we aim to provide a stress-free admissions process. We understand that this can be an overwhelming time, and hope to make it all as simple for you as possible. Alongside self-referrals, we also provide services to help families, friends and co-workers looking to get a loved one into a drug and alcohol rehab. Services include help with alcohol interventions and other substances.
First comes the initial enquiry. After calling, one of our admissions specialists will provide essential information on the drug and alcohol rehab services we provide and what treatment we offer. For this, we can speak over the phone, via email or through an online chat and you should ask as many questions as you want. The admissions team are there to ease any worries.
After that, we will carry out a free assessment to ascertain the nature of your addiction, your health, addiction history and severity, and your living and employment situation. All of this is confidential and takes roughly 30 minutes. Once that is done, we can further talk through treatment options and nail down an admission date.
At this time a deposit would need to be put down to secure a space at Asana Lodge. As a small private rehab centre our rooms get snapped up quickly.
Before you know it, your admission date will come round. Once you arrive you will be shown around, have time to unpack and settle in and sign any outstanding paperwork. Then you will have a full medical assessment to finalise your treatment plan and any medication regime.
Our Facilities at Asana Lodge
The accommodation at Asana Lodge consists of 22 luxury en-suite rooms that provide you with comfort and privacy during your stay. In the facility there are large communal areas for you to relax and interact with other clients during downtime. There are also gym facilities on-site and a library so you can train both your body and mind.
Asana Lodge is in a secluded area in rural Northamptonshire. This idyllic setting allows you to escape from the struggles of everyday life and give you the chance to reflect – stopping the destructive cycle you were in. The spacious grounds around the facility are perfect for outdoor activities, group sessions and a corner of a peaceful world where you can enjoy nature.
We have an on-site chef, ensuring you have a varied and healthy diet. Good nutrition is vital to recovery as it encourages healing processes in your body and will help you refuel.
All this comes together to create a safe and secure space to heal that encourages your recovery.
Treatment at Asana Lodge
The treatment you receive at Asana Lodge is bespoke, considering many factors and dealing with both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction.
To rid your body of drugs and alcohol you will have to participate in a detox programme. By cutting out your intake of substances, your body will soon no longer depend on the harmful chemicals that you have been putting into your body. To ease withdrawal symptoms, medication may be administered and you will be cared for 24/7 to ensure your comfort and safety.
After detoxing you will engage in various forms of therapies. You can expect to do individual sessions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Stress Management. These therapies will be combined with group sessions and social activities to encourage socialisation and bonding with your peers.
As a forward-thinking rehab centre, we also provide well-being therapies such as low-level laser therapy, Sartori Chair Therapy and yoga to promote self-care and wellness.
If you have mental health conditions alongside addiction then Asana Lodge offers dual diagnosis treatment. In a carefully planned and managed treatment plan, you will undergo mental health treatments alongside our addiction treatment plan. This way we can ensure you are getting the highest level of care and that you leave us in a much better state than when you came.
Beyond rehab, we offer a 12-month free aftercare package to make sure you have continued support. Aftercare is an important component of relapse prevention and those that engage with it seriously are much more likely to achieve long-term recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does rehab work?
Residential rehab is one of the most effective ways to overcome your substance addiction. However, as mentioned earlier, you need to be committed to the process of recovery for it to have the necessary impact. Without being prepared to change your lifestyle and habits, you will not benefit from any form of addition treatment. Addiction treatment is based around making positive changes to your physical and mental self, so for rehab to work you need to be willing to recover and undertake the rehab treatment properly.
How long does rehab last?
Rehab treatment programmes are most commonly around 28 days long, however treatment length can vary dependant on personal needs. A stay of this length is also most likely to increase the chances of a long-term recovery. Although it can seem a little daunting to commit to such a long course of treatment away from home, the benefits of this programme cannot be understated.
How do I pick the right rehabilitation programme?
Sadly, there is no way of knowing what kind of recovery programme you will benefit best from without consulting with a medical professional. This is also why, when you reach out to Asana Lodge, our helpline staff will discuss your addiction history to gain a better insight into your needs. We are then able to tailor a treatment programme just for you. We do not believe that everyone should receive the same treatment for addiction, which is why we make sure each of our clients receives the perfect treatment plan for their needs!
There are many justifications for consuming legal substances. For example, consuming prescription drugs to relieve pain is a logical decision. Consuming alcohol for a short-term escape is also a common validation. Whilst recommended consumption guidelines can be safe in most cases, abusing such parameters can be damaging. Substance misuse is where a substance is…Read More
