How Do You Know If You Are Addicted To Drugs Or Alcohol?
Addiction can happen to anyone and you can become addicted to many things, including; work, shopping and substances such as drugs and alcohol.
Addiction is defined as not having control over something you’re doing to the point where it becomes harmful to you. The actions of addiction form repetitive processes that become part of your daily life, often providing escapism from stress or negative emotions. Due to this, mental health issues often attribute to or are caused by addiction.
If you’re dependent on a substance to achieve a “high” or feeling of elation, you have become addicted. A good test is to see if you can go for 24 hours without the need to consume that substance.
Just the fact that you’re reading this suggests that you may have an addiction, or have a loved one that is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction.
Left untreated, addiction will cause your life to unravel. Relationships will fall apart as you just focus on your next fix. Friends and family will slowly drift away. You may lose, or have lost, your job, as you cannot concentrate or apply yourself to your daily duties.
To successfully overcome an addiction you need both physical and psychological help. Both your mind and body need to be treated to recover from addiction, and this can only be successfully achieved with professional help.
The first step is admitting you have an addiction, thereafter we are here to help.
When you contact us, at Asana Lodge, we’ll discuss, either over the phone, email or online chat, the length and severity of your addiction and your personal circumstances. We’ll discuss with you the treatment options available at rehab in Scotland and give you the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like.
We’ll then arrange a free assessment, whereby we can assess the length and severity of your addiction, as well as your personal circumstances.
After this initial assessment, we will arrange an admission date. We have many rehab centres across the UK, including Scotland, each one has luxury rehab facilities, which are in high demand.
It is perfectly normal to feel anxious when you arrive at rehab in Scotland, but rest assured our friendly and inviting staff will make you feel at home. You will be given a tour of the facilities and grounds and shown how you can make the most of the amenities during your stay.
You’ll initially be scheduled for 28 days of rehab, but this can vary depending on individual requirements.
Your Personalised Rehab Programme
At Asana Lodge we provide holistic treatment programmes that are based on scientific, evidence-based treatments. We understand that each joinery to long term recovery is personal, which means that we work with you to tailor your addiction treatment to you.
All rehab treatment programmes begin with detox. It’s important to rid your body of the substance you have been misusing to allow you to then focus and work on your mind and lifestyle. Detox can be dangerous, which is why it is always conducted under medical supervisions at our rehab clinics. We’ll work with you to slowly decrease your consumption levels until you are clear of the substance. This has to be conducted at a slow and supervised speed due to withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms will vary depending on the severity and length of addiction but can range from simple headaches to mood swings and heart palpitations, as well as more severe reactions.
During your time at Asana Lodge, you’ll have a combination of both physical and psychological treatment. Once your detox is safely underway you’ll begin your therapy treatment options. Your therapy treatment will be personalised for your needs but could include individual therapy, group therapy sessions, psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and possibly even Satori Chair and Intravenous Brain Restoration Protocols.
By undertaking therapy you can start to understand your addiction, its trigger and how to manage it in day-to-day life.
At the same time as undergoing therapy, you will also be provided with a nutritional plan to help your body recover from the addiction. All these different elements will work together to help you overcome your addiction and maintain long term sobriety in daily life.
If you have a drug or alcohol addiction and are looking for rehab in Scotland, you’re probably just as concerned with the prospect of long term sobriety, as you are about the initial treatment.
At Asana Lodge, once you’ve completed your programme we’ll provide you with 12 months of aftercare support. We want to ensure that you have the tools required to maintain your long term recovery in your day to day life.
You may wish to join local support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, or continue with some individual or family therapy. Support groups can provide brilliant peer support at a time you may require it the most. You may even seek help and advice with employment and finances. Whatever your requirements we will be there to provide you with support and guidance.
