Do I need treatment for drug or alcohol addiction?
It is not always easy for an addict to admit that they have a problem. Lying to oneself and others is a common sign of addiction in fact but you might want to consider the definition put forward by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. They say: “Addiction is defined as a chronic, relapsing disorder characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use despite adverse consequences.”
That means that if you continue to use drugs or alcohol compulsively, even though they lead to negative consequences, you could well be addicted. And if you are addicted to drugs or alcohol it is likely to cost you dearly.
You could end up dealing with:
- Emotional costs of addiction
Many addicts live with recurring feelings of shame, fear, anger, sadness, loneliness, isolation and other and other negative emotions. Addictions can also tear relationships apart, whether with partners, friends, family members or others.
- Financial costs of addiction
Substance abuse can lead to work and productivity issues and poor decisions in the workplace and other areas of life. There is also the cost of the alcohol or drugs themselves.
- Health costs of addiction
Addiction can lead to poor health generally as well as a wide range of chronic and serious illnesses and health conditions. It can affect sex drive and some forms of substance abuse can affect an unborn child.
- Legal costs of addiction
If your addiction involves illegal drugs there is always the chance of getting into trouble with the law for possession. Alcohol is legally available of course but problem drinking can often contribute to illegal behaviour such as drunk driving or getting into fights.
These are just some of the potential costs but addiction tends to have a negative impact on almost every aspect of your life. If you want to turn your life around it can be incredibly difficult to do so alone. Addiction actually causes functional changes to brain circuits involved in reward, stress, and self-control, leading to a compulsive urge to use the substance even if you experience any of the negative effects listed above or other adverse consequences.
Should I go to rehab for drug and alcohol abuse?
Not every treatment programme suits every individual but we believe that drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres in Nuneaton and further afield provide the very best chance of beating your addiction and rebooting your life.
There are a number of reasons for this. Community-based or outclient addiction treatment certainly has its place but it can be difficult to avoid some of the triggers that are associated with your alcohol or drug use. Not to mention the fact that the substances you use are likely to be readily available.
It probably won’t surprise you to learn that there are no illegal drugs or alcoholic drinks for sale at drug and alcohol treatment centres. You can take time to focus on beating your addiction and getting well. You will have the support of people who are completely non-judgemental and have a wealth of experience in helping people with addiction problems. Other residents may well be going through similar experience to you.

What can I expect when attending a drug or alcohol rehab near me?
When you book into a drug rehab UK centre you can expect to receive the very best treatment service in a calm and safe environment.
This is important if you intend to attend a detox clinic, as this can be very intimidating. Many addicts who have admitted to themselves that they have a problem will have tried to kick their habit, but many will not get past this stage. Essentially, it is the period of time in which the toxic substances are metabolised and processed by the body. This can be extremely challenging and even dangerous, as cravings and physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms can be severe. A supervised detox programme can help the addict to manage their detox and the withdrawal symptoms, which vary depending on the substance but always tend to be very unpleasant.
Beyond that, rehab centres will offer a range of treatment options aimed at providing the skills, knowledge and tools needed for the recovering addict to stay clean throughout their stay and beyond. Cravings, psychological symptoms and some physical symptoms can all affect the person in recovery for a long time. There is always a danger of relapse so therapies and other treatments aim to explore the root causes of a person’s addiction and to provide them with an understanding of their own behaviour.
This can be through techniques such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and other types of therapy. Educational workshops can also help the recovering addict to learn more about how addiction affects the brain and body, as well as providing information on living a healthier lifestyle. The goal is always a lasting and long-term recovery.
