Some individuals believe that it will take a significant exposure to drugs and alcohol to influence the development of an addiction. For some, this will be the case, where tolerances are higher, where a lower reliance is present, and where causations carry weaker associations.
Yet, for some, with low tolerances, abusing an addictive drug to combat the side effects of depression, an addiction can develop much quicker.
This is exactly why, along with health concerns, those consumption guidelines for both alcohol and prescription drugs are provided. In tandem, this stands as one reason why illicit, illegal drugs are discouraged, as their effects can work at a rapid rate.
Down to differing speeds when considering the formation and development of an addiction, we at Asana Lodge urge you to think about your current consumption.
We understand that you may feel like drugs and alcohol are currently helping you, are uplifting your mood, are acting as an emotional crutch, or are motivating you. Yet, a time will come where physical and psychological side effects of long-term use will showcase themselves, along with an addiction diagnosis.
Getting your consumption under control, sooner than later will be the best route, possible by working with specialists via a drug and alcohol rehab in Enderby.
Reasonably you may feel like this step will escalate your problems with drugs and alcohol, beyond your current reality. Yet, sooner than later, enablement will cause consequences of either addiction, mental health issues, or overdose.
Seek intervention with the aim to slow down and curb the development of a drug and alcohol addiction.
The ease of developing an addiction
As we’ve shared above, substance abuse can quickly intensify into the symptoms of addiction. Of course, rates and experiences will differ for every user.
Factors such as tolerances, metabolisms, general health, the drug at hand, the length and consistency of consumption, motives behind initial use, and the effect of drugs at the moment can all either speed up or average out the development phase.
It is however also important to note that some individuals have a greater susceptibility to developing an addiction, down to genetics.
This is unfortunately uncontrollable, which is also the case when considering mental health issues. With this in mind, some individuals can in fact develop addictive traits, prior to experiencing drug and alcohol consumption.
As timelines cannot be gauged accurately, it is important to keep an eye on your consumption, side effects, and if any, withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms which you cannot shake, physical and psychological cravings, and the necessity to consume greater levels of drugs and alcohol are early signs of addiction.
While in every case, this will not prove the development of an addiction, at this point, a strong likelihood will be present, marking key adaptations to the body and brain.
If you’re at this point, visiting a drug and alcohol rehab in Enderby for a degree of rehabilitation will be advantageous. If you’re yet to spot the signs of addiction, support systems are still available to you, to help you suppress your drug and alcohol problems.
Working with specialists via a drug and alcohol rehab in Enderby
Once an addiction does develop, many individuals enable the ongoing advancement of this behavioural habit.

Yet, by visiting our website, we will assume that you’re potentially experiencing symptoms of addiction. By noticing and acting on those symptoms, this is a positive sign, showcasing a degree of control. Yet, by enabling your addictive characteristics, from here on out, control may soon be lacking.
