    Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Abington on Thames

    Addiction presents itself through a wide range of symptoms. For a very long time, this might be obvious to the people around the person who has the substance problem, while not being apparent to the person themselves.

    For those living with a substance abuse issue, it will take a while to be able to admit that a problem exists.

    This might be because they don’t want to have to let go of the “one thing” that makes life easier to face, because of the challenge of entering rehabilitation, or because they might feel embarrassed or guilty.

    Once a person has come to admit the problem, though, new energy is brought to the situation. This often creates hope. As amazing as this is, it needs to be remembered that there is a long way to go. Recovery requires support in all areas.

    Loved ones need to be patient and also need to bear in mind that accepting the problem exists and wanting to quit, doesn’t make it easy to do at all.

    To find everything you need to know about drug and alcohol rehab options in Abingdon on the Thames, call the OK Rehab advisors on 0800 326 5559.

    Types of Substance Use and Severity of Addiction

    There are many ways people use substances and also different levels of use within each of these categories. The journey of alcohol and drug use isn’t always straightforward.

    For many, identifying where they are on their substance-use journey incorrectly can be a barrier to accessing rehabilitation.

    Types of substance use

    People use drugs and alcohol in the following ways:

    • In an exploratory manner. This is when people first try alcohol and drugs. For many, this happens during the teenage years.
    • Recreational use. People might take drugs and drink alcohol with friends when they’re at a bar, club, or festival.
    • Problematic use. This is when alcohol and drugs seep into weekly or daily use. It usually creates a lot of problems with family members, friends, finances, work, and also with mental and physical health.
    • Active sobriety. A person who has developed an addiction might go on to become actively sober to manage the addiction.

    Severity of Addiction

    When people have an addiction or problematic substance misuse, there are different levels of drug and alcohol addiction.

    There are mild, moderate, and severe addictions, as well as substance dependency.

    An example of a mild substance problem is a person who will use substances in a way that they know is too often.

    They might find it difficult to stop because the people they spend time with use drugs and alcohol. When they are in a different location (i.e. on holiday) they find it easy not to use substances and don’t think about them.

    An example of a severe drug and alcohol addiction is when a person thinks about the substance every day, worries when they can’t get the substance and will do everything they can do to get it. It will negatively impact all areas of their lives.

    A substance dependency is when a substance such as alcohol, an opioid, or benzodiazepine has created conditions in the body where the brain chemistry, hormonal system, and organs have come to rely on the substances to be able to function in a normal way.

    When withdrawing, it can create dangerous effects such as extreme pain and seizures. A dependency can exist without a drug or alcohol addiction present.
