    Where does addiction come from and how did this happen to you?


    It’s likely you will have some idea of some of the factors that led up to your addiction beginning. What you might not know, however, is how there are a series of factors that are very commonly seen in people who have addictions.

    Addiction is more likely to occur when one or more of the following conditions exists:

    • Growing up around people who have addictions.
    • Having a genetic predisposition to developing an addiction.
    • The experience of trauma
    • Low self-esteem.
    • Spending time with others who use alcohol and drugs.
    • Having a mental health issue.

    When you consider how all these conditions work, it’s understandable that some people end up hooked on psychoactive substances. Many do so because they feel it makes them experience life in an easier way.

    Sometimes, people use substances to dull pain or to avoid thinking about certain things. Where this happens, it’s important to really think about the benefits that psychotherapies will offer you.

    There is a team of clinical staff available who will ensure your health and safety is a top priority. Where necessary, people will be provided with medications to help ease any distressing symptoms linked to withdrawal. Detox is mainly a time for rest, emotional support, and gentle activity.
