Across the East Midlands, a surge in the number of individuals abusing and becoming addicted to drugs has been noticed.
If you regularly administer drugs and are now experiencing various side effects, we would encourage you to contact a drug and alcohol rehab in West Bridgford.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to seek treatment away from your hometown, at Asana Lodge, we can offer you private residential rehabilitation.
Drug Misuse in England
In 2019, over 7,000 hospital admissions were made for drug-related mental and behaviour disorders in England. In addition, more than 18,000 individuals were admitted to hospital having suffered from drug-related poisoning.
While these admissions were mostly treatable through the employment of rehabilitation and medical care, over 2,000 people sadly lost their lives to drug misuse.
Unfortunately, drug misuse and addictions in England show no sign of slowing.
Although it could be assumed that an increase in individuals battling additions will mean that a more significant number of people will seek support from a rehabilitation centre, this is not true.
The number of people obtaining life-saving support for their addictions continues to decline.
How Do I Know If I Am Addicted to Drugs?
Do you turn to drugs on a daily basis? Do you rely on substances to get you through the day? Do you struggle to complete even the basics of tasks if you have been unable to administer drugs?
Do you suffer from persistent nausea and headaches if you go without drugs for a short period of time?
Although you may not believe that you are addicted to drugs, if you have answered yes to the above questions, drug addiction is most likely present.
You may even be suffering from withdrawal symptoms.
In addition to relying on substances, struggling to complete basic tasks and experiencing persistent nausea and headaches, if you are battling a drug addiction you may also encounter the following physical and psychological symptoms;
- Fluctuating mood swings
- Increased temper
- Heightened irritability
- Memory problems
- Inability to concentrate and focus
- Weight loss
- Lack of personal hygiene
- Low self-esteem
- Increased stress levels
If you have experienced any of the above symptoms, we would urge you to contact a drug and alcohol rehab in West Bridgford as soon as possible.
The above symptoms indicate that drug addiction is impairing your life. While they may only last for a short period, they will be recurring, and they will eventually have a detrimental impact on your well-being.
What Are the Long-Term Consequences of Drug Use?
Having come to understand the short-term effects that drug addiction can have, you may not feel overly worried.
After all, the short-term effects of drugs will subside after approximately 24 – 48 hours. However, as touched on above, the short-term effects of drug addictions could eventually impair the quality of your life.
As the short-term effects of drug use are experienced time and time again, they will lead to a wealth of long-term effects that are often irreversible.
From heart and liver disease to a heightened risk of suffering from a stroke in the future, the long-term consequences of drug addictions cannot be ignored.
In addition to harming your physical and psychological health, drug addictions can damage your relationships. Be it with friends or family members, as your drug addiction takes its toll on you, your nearest and dearest will feel the ramifications.
Although you will not intend to, as your addiction consumes your life, you will push your loved ones away and distance yourself from those that care about you.
How Are Drug Addictions Treated at Asana Lodge?
Drug addictions are vicious cycles that consume the lives of individuals across the world.
Regardless of how hard an individual may try to reduce their drug consumption or stop taking substances altogether, without professional support and help, many, unfortunately, relapse.
As you identify that you are battling drug addiction, it is understandable that you will want to determine how your addiction may be treated before agreeing to attend rehab.
Here at Asana Lodge, our drug addiction treatment focuses on a holistic treatment approach and brain health restoration.
We only administer treatments that we genuinely believe will enable our patients to make a long-term recovery and change their life for the better.
Should you decide to seek treatment at our private residential rehab, rather than a drug and alcohol rehab in West Bridgford, you will be provided with a bespoke recovery treatment programme that will outline the treatments that are deemed most appropriate for you.
Typically, our treatment programmes include medically induced detoxification, rehabilitation and aftercare support.
As you commence your treatment programme, you will be required to detox from the substance that you have become addicted to.
As you successfully withdraw, you will progress to the rehabilitation stage of your treatment programme.
Throughout rehabilitation, you will be introduced to various traditional and non-traditional therapy methods.
Irrespective of the therapy methods that are advised, therapy will provide you with the ability to come to terms with the factors that have influenced your addiction and express any concerns you have.
Upon doing so, you will work with our recovery team to devise coping strategies that will enable you to turn your life around.
Following your time in our rehab, we will continue to support you by offering you 12 months of free aftercare support.
