Admitting that you have become addicted to drugs or alcohol is difficult. However, there is a wealth of support available to help you overcome your addiction.
From a drug and alcohol rehab in Smethwick to our private residential rehab, we would urge you to seek professional help for your addiction as soon as possible.
Determining that you need to obtain treatment for your drug or alcohol addiction can be extremely overwhelming.
Although you may have been aware that you have been consuming substances more regularly, you may not have believed that an addiction has been impairing your life up until now.
As and when you come to realise that an addiction has taken control of your life, you may be hesitant to tell anyone. In fact, you may not want to tell anyone.
Although it is not uncommon for you to want to keep your addiction a secret from your loved ones, you must address your addiction and seek support from either a drug and alcohol rehab in Smethwick or a rehab further from home.
The Physical and Psychological Effects That Addiction Have
Before determining that you have become addicted to drugs or alcohol, you may have noticed some changes in your physical and psychological well-being.
However, it is possible that you put these changes down to generally feeling unwell.
From the way an individual thinks to the way an individual looks, drug and alcohol addictions can impair an individual’s physical and psychological health.
While often temporary, when an addiction is left untreated, these impairments can, unfortunately, have a permanent impact on an individual’s life.
If you have identified that you are suffering from an addiction, the following physical and psychological repercussions of your addiction may have begun to impact your life.
Physical Effects That an Addiction Has;
- Extreme weight loss
- Lack of personal hygiene
- Suffering from headaches and nausea
- Constantly feeling tired
- Reduced energy levels
Psychological Effects That an Addiction Has;
- Increasing feelings of anxiety
- Mood swings
- Heightened mental health disorders
- Inability to focus
Should I Obtain NHS Treatment? Or Is Private Rehab in My Best Interest?
Having come to understand the impact that your addiction has had on your physical and psychological well-being, you may be left wondering whether you should obtain NHS treatment or attend a private residential rehab.
Although the treatment that the NHS offers is highly beneficial, individuals may be left waiting for prolonged periods of time before they obtain the help that they so desperately need for their addiction. Unfortunately, when an addiction is present, treatment is required as soon as possible.
Unlike the treatment provided by the NHS, obtaining treatment from a residential rehab like ours offers instant support.
In many instances, you will be able to commence treatment at our residential centre within days of initially contacting us.
The Pros and Cons of Attending Residential Rehab
We understand that when it comes to determining whether to attend a drug and alcohol rehab in Smethwick or a residential rehab further afield, there will be many factors that you need to take into consideration.
To help you make a decision, we have listed the various pros and cons of attending our residential rehab below.
The Pros of Attending Our Residential Rehab Include;
- Our treatment programmes are tailored to the needs of each individual.
- Our residential rehab boasts industry-leading treatments that other rehab centres may not be able to offer.
- Our residential rehab has a high success rate, with 99% of patients making a long-term recovery.
- Our residential rehab provides around the clock support and care by a specialist recovery team and medical professionals.
- Our residential rehab provides a safe space in which individuals can address and overcome the factors that have contributed to their addiction.
- Residential rehab abolishes the risk of relapsing during treatment.
- Residential rehab minimises the risk of relapse after completing a rehabilitation programme.
- Our residential rehab offers patients 12 months of free aftercare support.
- Our residential rehab provides exceptional facilities including en-suite bedrooms, spacious lounge areas and bright and airy dining rooms.
- Residential rehab enables individuals to remove themselves from their typical day-to-day routine to focus on their addiction recovery.
The Cons of Attending Our Residential Rehab Include;
- When you attend a residential rehab, you will be required to leave your family home as you commence your treatment programme. This will see you leave your family behind for some time.
- As you commence your treatment at a residential rehab, you are encouraged to focus solely on your recovery. Unfortunately, this will see you unable to fulfil your usual working commitments.
- Throughout your time in residential rehab, you will be provided with a schedule that may restrict what you can and cannot do.
- The overall cost of treatment at a residential rehab can be considerably higher than the cost of attending an out-patient or NHS rehab.
- Although we aim to help as many people as we possibly can, our centre can only accommodate 25 people at any given time.
When considering residential rehab, the pros often outweigh the cons. Although you will be required to leave your loved ones behind for a short period of time and adhere to schedules that may restrict what you can and cannot do, residential rehab offers greater recovery rates, excellent treatment programmes and state-of-the-art facilities.
