What are the effects of drug or alcohol addiction?
Addiction can have many devastating effects, from destroying relationships with family and friends, negatively impacting your career, and damaging your physical and mental well-being. There are a number of serious health problems associated with addiction to alcohol or drugs, most commonly you could experience anxiety, heart attacks, psychosis, and nutritional disorders. The severity of the side effects will be dependent on the severity of your addiction along with other factors such as your age, weight, height, and overall lifestyle. Of course, the longer you continue to fuel your addiction, the more damage your physical and psychological health will experience.
When seeking out a rehab for drug and alcohol addiction, it doesn’t matter whether your substance misuse has just started or if you’ve been living with addiction for a long period of time already. You should also ask for support, no matter how mild you may think your addiction is. Many people like the idea of recovering from addiction in the comfort of their own home, however, this comes with its problems. Not only has this proven to be the least effective method of addiction treatment, but it’s also more likely that you’ll relapse when you’re surrounded by your normal life. By visiting a residential private drug and alcohol rehab like ours in Grantham, you’re removing yourself from the negative influences and distractions of your daily routine. You’re giving yourself the best chance of recovery by removing any temptations. Our recovery-focused rehab centre allows you to solely concentrate on your recovery goals, resulting in a more effective and efficient recovery.
What treatment options do we have available at our rehab in Grantham?
Here at Asana Lodge, we’re the UK’s first and only private residential rehab centre which is based purely on evidence-based addiction treatments. Our industry-leading treatments are delivered by our expert team of medical professionals who are on hand to offer you unparalleled support throughout the duration of your treatment. We initially conduct an assessment on your physical and psychological health which helps us to design your personalised treatment programme with your specific needs in mind.
Your treatment programme will consist of a variety of therapy techniques to help you overcome your drug or alcohol addiction in the best way for you. We generally recommended a visit to our detox clinic for most clients who are struggling with addiction. This enables you to cleanse your body of the harmful toxins caused by substance abuse and makes your following treatments more effective. As you reduce your consumption of alcohol or drugs, it’s likely you’ll experience withdrawal symptoms which can be quite distressing.
We appreciate that detoxing can be dangerous and painful, but we wouldn’t recommend it unless we believed it to be an integral aspect of your recovery. Our medical team will slowly reduce your intake of alcohol or drugs, monitoring your progress each step of the way. You may experience nausea, dizziness, anxious episodes, and in severe cases, you could suffer from hallucinations, insomnia, and delirium tremens (DT’s). This is when you may need emergency medical assistance, highlighting the importance of undergoing a detox in a supervised, professional environment.

Our expert team can provide a variety of traditional and non-traditional therapies to help you succeed in your recovery. In addition to detoxification, we most commonly provide cognitive behavioural therapy, relapse prevention classes, individual, group or family counselling, stress management, relaxation and sleep management, mindfulness, and nutritional therapy.
Our holistic drug and alcohol rehab focus on both your physical dependency on alcohol or drugs and your psychological triggers. We aim to promote a positive attitude and provide you with the tools needed to understand the link you have with alcohol or drugs and what may have caused your addiction.
