What are the physical signs of Drug or Alcohol Addiction?
There really aren’t any positives when it comes to drug or alcohol addiction. the harmful toxins within these substances negatively impact your physical health from the moment they’re consumed.
The first signs you’re likely to notice is the impact addiction had on your physical health, damaging your body, and altering your appearance. You may appear pale or gaunt, have skin sores, have shakes or bloodshot eyes. You’ll also be much more prone to developing heart disease, liver disease, stroke, diabetes, and digestion problems.
How does Addiction impact your psychological health?
Just how addiction damages your physical health, it also severely deteriorates your psychological health. Alcohol and drugs can cause the makeup in your brain to change, altering your behaviours and damaging your brains functionality.
You may feel lonely, anxious, depressed, experience low self-esteem, bipolarity, or even contemplate suicide as a result of your addiction.
What are the best Addiction Treatment Options?
At our private drug and alcohol rehab Woolwich Riverside, we employ a holistic approach to our addiction treatment programmes. This means that alongside the traditional drug and alcohol detoxification, we also deliver evidence-based psychological therapies and therapies which are used to improve your general well-being.
This well-rounded approach to your rehabilitation will give you the best chance of succeeding in your long-term recovery. We also strongly believe in personalising each individual’s addiction treatment to ensure the benefits are maximised and your recovery is effective as possible.
Typically, you’ll begin with a drug or alcohol detoxification before starting your subsequent therapies. By undergoing a drug or alcohol detoxification, you’re giving yourself the best chance of safely removing the harmful toxins from your system in a gradual and controlled manner.
This process must be supervised by a professional team of addiction specialists to ensure its managed safely and to ensure the detoxification is successful. Detoxification is the best way to cleanse your system so that you can make the most of your psychological and well-being therapies.
Some common psychological therapies we deliver include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), individual, group or family counselling, motivational interviewing, relapse prevention, and stress management.
Alongside these therapies which help to break your psychological connection with drug or alcohol addiction, we also deliver therapies that take care of your general well-being as you go through rehabilitation. These well-being therapies include low-level laser therapy, art therapy, nutritional supplement, fitness therapy, art therapy, relaxation and sleep management, yoga, mindfulness, and music therapy.
Essential Aftercare Plans
Everyone who joins our drug and alcohol rehab Woolwich Riverside will have a unique addiction treatment programme to follow. The duration of each treatment programme will vary per person depending on the severity of their addiction and their personal circumstances.
Typically, our comprehensive addiction treatment programmes last around 28 days followed by a 12-month aftercare plan free of charge.
The first year after completing your addiction treatment at our rehabilitation centre is usually the most challenging as it’s when you’re most likely to suffer from a drug or alcohol relapse. Adapting to your new behaviours and utilising the new tools you’ve learned can be quite difficult so it’s crucial that you continue to have a support system on your return home.
We provide a dedicated helpline where you can contact us at any time for anything that’s on your mind. We’re also able to arrange additional therapy sessions such as counselling or extra relapse prevention sessions if needed.
Our aftercare team can also recommend local support groups to utilise including Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. These support groups have proven to be a great help for many people recovering from addiction.
What are the Rehab facilities like?
We work hard to maintain a calming and welcoming atmosphere at our drug and alcohol rehab Woolwich Riverside. We have some excellent facilities available to our clients which include a welcome lounge/visitor room, medication/exam room, a library, gym facilities, commercial kitchen and dining area, bespoke nutrition plans, on-site chef, laundry, and 1-2-1 therapy rooms. We also have lift access to all floors and adapted bathrooms for those who require it.
How much does Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation cost?
There’s a variety of treatment options for you to choose from to suit all budgets. Addiction treatment can be sourced free of charge, via the NHS, or you can receive treatment from a private drug and alcohol rehab. Whilst free addiction treatment may sound appealing, it’s unlikely to be effective in achieving a long-term recovery, particularly when compared to the high standard of personalisation you receive through a private drug and alcohol rehab. We can provide you with a tailored quote, simply get in touch with our admissions team.
How does Drug and Alcohol Addiction affect Mental Health?
Addiction and mental health problems are closely linked, in the last year alone, ONS (2021) reported 3.4% of adults aged 16 to 59 years old took Class A drugs in England and Wales which equates to around 1.1 million people. This was much higher in adults aged 16 to 24 years old at 7.4%; you can read more on these stats here - https://asanalodge.com/substance-abuse-and-mental-health/. This is why it’s so crucial that we include therapies which take care of your general well-being alongside your physical and psychological treatments.
