What are the main causes of Drug Addiction or Alcohol Addiction?
Whilst there may be a number of reasons why one person became addicted to alcohol or drugs, we can look at some of the primary causes which may have influenced substance abuse.
We aim to identify the underlying reasons of your addiction as it’s extremely helpful when designing a treatment programme specific to your unique condition.
It’s also highly useful for you to understand what may have caused your addiction to alcohol or drugs, you’re then much more likely to identify potential triggers and avoid any relapses throughout your residential addiction treatment.
Some of the more common causes of drug or alcohol abuse are childhood or adult trauma, stress at work or at home, grief, dealing with the end of a relationship, attempting to cope with mental health issues, or a combination of all these.
Where substance abuse is used as a coping mechanism to manage mental health issues, we refer to this as a dual diagnosis as you’re managing both an addiction and mental health issues. This could also occur where excessive consumption of alcohol or drugs has resulted in problems with your mental health, leaving you with a dual diagnosis.
In any case, our team are experienced with treating a wide variety of conditions and can effectively create a treatment programme to suit your specific needs.
Do you really need to join a Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation?
As we mentioned earlier, we frequently see people in denial about their addiction to alcohol or drugs, making the first step of acceptance crucial in your recovery. Once you’re able to admit to yourself that you need expert support, we encourage you to take the brave step of contacting our private drug and alcohol rehab to ask for help.
Our team are compassionate, caring and extremely understanding of every case they manage, all of which are treated with respect and discretion.
If you’re still not sure if you’re ready to join a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre, then answer the questions below.
- Have you noticed your addiction affecting your physical or psychological health?
Addiction to alcohol or drugs can severely impact many aspects of your life, most noticeably your physical and psychological health. The chemicals in these substances are toxic, therefore will have a detrimental effect on your well-being potentially leaving you with irreversible damage.
- Has your addiction to alcohol or drugs began to impact your relationships?
Those who suffer from addiction tend to believe they’re only hurting themselves; this couldn’t be further from the truth. Of course, you’re also affecting the lives of those around you as they spend their time worrying about you which takes a toll on their well-being. It’s very common to see relationships break down as a result of substance abuse.
- How do you feel when you’re not abusing alcohol or drugs?
If all you can think about is your next ‘fix’, then you’re likely physically and psychologically dependent on alcohol or drugs. You may be experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you’re not using, resulting in the time between using becoming less and less as you crave it more frequently.
If you’re experiencing any of these signs, it’s vital that you seek help immediately before it gets any worse. Whilst it may seem impossible, our rehab for drug and alcohol abuse can help you to overcome your addiction indefinitely. Don’t let this disease take over your life, act now.
