While relapse may come across as a negative, as a failure of addiction recovery, it is in fact the opposite. If you’ve progressed through a drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme, reaching the other side as a recovering addict, you’ve achieved your initial goal of becoming clean. However, long-term maintenance of…Read More
Many individuals believe that substance abuse is a choice. In fact, initial drug and alcohol consumption is commonly an active choice. A user will go from being sober, to consuming drugs and alcohol for any given reason, from celebrating, to unwinding after a busy week in work.
Yet when it concerns an addiction diagnosis, the level of control and choice is commonly lacking. There are many causes of addiction. Causes will in fact differ for each individual. Environments, pre-existing biology, social pressures and mental health issues are a few influential risks of addiction, turning innocent consumption into a need.
Emotions, stress and even previous experiences can also make people at a higher risk of addiction.
It is very important that professional support for drug and alcohol rehabilitation is sourced, and secondly, that personal reasons of addiction are overcome through rehab.

Overcoming the cause of addiction
Some clients will understand the reasons behind their addiction. They may have used drugs and alcohol to block out mental health side effects, while others may lack knowledge of drugs, so their addiction has come as a shock.
Although awareness may or may not be present, it is very important that professional addiction support is sourced to overcome it.
Causation is the exact trigger or reason which fuels initial drug and alcohol consumption. Once this process begins, it will then be the addictive characteristics and the physical and psychological adaptations which drugs and alcohol cause, driving the development of addiction.
However, in order to overcome an addiction, the initial causation must also be recognised and diminished.
Without this step, that causation can once again influence substance abuse, posing risks of an addiction diagnosis, into the future.
For some clients, triggers can be depression, where drugs and alcohol act as a coping strategy. For others, it can be a pre-existing biological likelihood which naturally increases the risk of addiction. In both cases, working through causations and treating it as a dual diagnosis is imperative.
This will ensure that both physical and psychological long-term recovery can be aimed for.
While you may believe that this level of recovery can be achieved via a generic drug and alcohol rehab in York, unfortunately, it cannot; increasing the need to visit Asana Lodge.
Looking beyond a drug and alcohol rehab in York
In some situations, localised recovery can offer rehabilitation opportunities. However, this can be very difficult when concerning an addiction, down to physical and psychological causations. With this in mind, looking beyond a drug and alcohol rehab in York will benefit you and your recovery rates greatly.
This is down to the fact that causations are usually linked to emotions, to places, to people, to experiences, to stress and to memories, which in turn show themselves in different, uncontrolled forms. Great focus and concentration must be present when treating drug and alcohol addiction.
By remaining in York, risks of deterring that concentration will be present, ultimately pausing addiction treatment, or worse yet, stopping it completely.
With this in mind, it is encouraged that you actively remove yourself from the risk of this, by visiting a residential rehab, specialising in addiction treatment.

Mental health recovery at Asana Lodge
At Asana Lodge, we specialise in addiction recovery programmes but also focus on the psychological diagnosis too.
While physical side effects may show themselves and physical causations may drive drug and alcohol abuse, psychological associations will continue to motivate addictive behaviours.
With this in mind, we aim to tackle those psychological associations, soon followed by the treatment of physical associations. This is completed by assessing brain functionality and response rates when considering drug and alcohol consumption.
Through the likes of art therapy, detoxification, cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management, virtual reality therapy and brain restoration, addiction can be worked through. Exact addiction treatment options will be endorsed post-assessment.
If a patient has a mental health issue which is either the result of or exasperated by a drug addiction, a dual-diagnosis treatment will be required, standing as an independent treatment programme.
If you are suffering from mental health issues or understand that psychological triggers are fuelling your substance abuse consumption, this can be worked through here at Asana Lodge with a dual diagnosis treatment, proving you with greater recovery opportunities in York.
Our approach to rehab sets us apart from other rehabilitation clinics, ensuring that your mind is firstly healed.
