In the UK, there is a big culture surrounding drinking. Particularly the normalisation of binge drinking when with others. While abusing alcohol under any circumstances is never recommended, it is better than if you were to drink the same amount when you are out with your friends when you are…Read More
Addiction can manifest in multiple ways. Many substances can cause addiction and therefore, each case is an individual. However, the problem is rising, and millions worldwide suffer from this problem.
When left untreated, drug and alcohol addiction can lead to severe mental and physical impairments and even overdose. In general, the addictive potential of the drug depends on the intrinsic properties of the compound. Each drug has its own chemistry, and this affects the user differently.
What Causes Addiction?
Three dominating factors may contribute to addiction. However, there is no confirmed cause; it is often a series of events and underlying issues that create this addictive behaviour. Genetic, physical and environmental factors are often the reasonings of alcohol and drug addiction.
Have you struggled with mental health? Have you relied on prescription medications long-term? Are you in an abusive relationship? Were you born to an addicted parent? Do you have unhealthy friendships that have led to poor decisions? There is always a psychological trigger to addiction that must be broken.
Thankfully, this perpetual struggle can be broken with drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Rehab seeks to help people facing addiction rewire their minds and tackle the issues that have led them to this problem. This includes detox and therapies in a professional and medical setting. Alcohol and drug rehab gives you access to round-the-clock care in a luxurious and comfortable place to call your own. Every element is taken care of, from your diet to exercise and activity.
Private drug and alcohol rehab is a comprehensive programme that is bespoke to fit your needs. Not only does it boast high success rates, but it is known to offer all patients a positive outlook on life, assisting in creating a better future. The worry of addiction can quickly spiral, so you should always seek help as soon as possible to avoid any adverse outcomes.

The Alcohol and Drug Detox Process
Alcohol and drug detoxification is a medical process which removes the toxins of addictive substances from the body. This often lasts around one week, removes the dependency, and stops all the physical aspects of addiction. We eliminate or mitigate withdrawal symptoms during this time, and you will be cared for around the clock.
The goal of drug and alcohol detoxification is to help you abandon poor habits which are harmful to you and incorporate new and healthy habits whilst healing the body and mind from the effects of the substance. You may be given certain medications during this phase to make the transition more comfortable; however, there will be numerous methods to ensure this process is compelling throughout. Once this phase is completed, you will be ready to begin your therapies and treatments that will now combat the mental part of your addiction.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does rehab work?
Residential rehab is one of the most effective ways to overcome your addictive disorder for the long-term. 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 how you live at the moment, then you cannot hope to benefit from any form of addition treatment. Addiction treatment is based around making positive changes to your physiology and psychology, so without being ready to change you have little hope of achieving the necessary end result.
What happens when I leave rehab?
That depends on you. After rehab, the recovery journey is not over as the rest of your life waits. Taking advantage of our aftercare package and remaining vigilant as you attend weekly support meetings is essential to staying clean. Using all you have learnt during your time with us, hopefully, you can lead a fulfilling life free of addiction.
Can I detox at home?
You can detox at home in some cases. However, if you start to experience severe side effects, you should seek medical treatment immediately. If you are worried about detoxing at home, your best option is to speak to a doctor or medical professional for some medical advice on the best approach. It is always recommended, however, that you attend rehab for the safest detox.
