    Drug and/or alcohol addiction can bring untold damage to the lives of sufferers.

    Different kinds of addiction can affect people in vastly different ways. But beyond a certain point, the results are inevitably the same.

    The longer the addiction goes on, the more irreversible this harm becomes. The best way to avoid all of this is to seek out drug and alcohol rehab in Eltham, or anywhere else local to you.

    Finding the Right Addiction Treatment For You

    Here at OK Rehab, we strive to find everyone the perfect treatment plan.

    We generally do this via a combination of conversations and formal assessments. Through both, we’ll try to pin down the essential facts of your case, to figure out what’s right for you.

    And that’s not the only service we offer either. For example, if you have concerned about someone else, we can help with an intervention. You’ll likely be all too aware that it can be really difficult to get through to someone who’s still in denial. If you feel helpless, this could be the best solution.

    To get in touch with OK Rehab, you need to contact us via our website or give us a phone call.

    It doesn’t matter what addiction issue you’re coming to us with, or how many times you have or hasn’t been through treatment before. We’ll always be there to help, support and guide you with whatever you need.

    Signs and Symptoms of Addiction

    Now we’ve looked at ways you can get help, let’s go over some of the key symptoms of addiction. It’s important to be aware of all of these, so you can learn to spot addiction in yourself and others.

    If you notice any of these symptoms in combination, you should look into getting help as soon as possible.

    1. An inability to stop, despite potential harm to yourself and others. This could be physical, withdrawal symptoms, or simply mental. Either way, this is the symptom that defines addiction. Especially in comparison to using and abuse of drugs and/or alcohol, which are both their separate things.
    2. Other behavioural and psychological symptoms include increased irritability, secrecy, and a decreased commitment to activities you would’ve previously enjoyed/participated in.
    3. Physical symptoms like bloodshot eyes, disrupted sleep patterns and withdrawal symptoms including tremors and sweating. Alongside this, there’s also a decreased regard for personal hygiene.

    The Importance of Individual Research

    As every case of addiction is unique, it can also be highly beneficial to research your specific circumstances.

    One of the areas where this applies most is withdrawal symptoms. These generally show up and then worsen as the addiction itself worsens.

    But they can also vary hugely in both type and severity. You can get huge variations depending on how bad your addiction is, how long it’s been happening and what you’re addicted to in the first place.

    As a result, we’d highly recommend looking up the withdrawal symptoms for your exact addiction. That way, when you’re reading through the list, you’ll know what applies to you and what doesn’t. There’s honestly no point worrying or even just trying to learn about things that won’t apply to your case!

    If you’re considering residential treatment in particular, you should also look into every place you’re considering on your own. Find out what treatments they offer and see if it lines up with your addiction.

    Try to find out where they’re located (localised treatment is usually better, primarily as it’s more convenient). Find out a bit more about their rules and regulations, as this nearly always varies from place to place.

    Finally, you should look into treatments available for your particular addiction. That way, you’ll have a better idea of what might face you once you get started.

    Ultimately, having a good base of knowledge also helps with the fear of the unknown which stops too many people from getting help.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Now let’s look at a few more frequently asked questions. There are a couple that nearly always pop up in conversations with us, with some of the most common beings:

    1. What can/should I take with me to rehab?

    This is something that can change from place to place. But a few items that generally make the “allowed/recommended” list are:

    • A notebook
    • A pen (to go with the notebook)
    • Some money for vending machines etc.
    • Clean clothes and any toiletries you might need
    • Sentimental jewellery (with one example being wedding rings – it’s not recommended to bring any other valuables)
    • Pictures of loved ones
    • The contact details of anyone you’d like to get in touch with during your stay

    On the other hand, and a more negative note, there are also a few things that generally aren’t allowed during residential treatment. Some are more obvious than others, but generally, this includes:

    • Drugs and alcohol
    • Certain toiletries that may contain alcohol
    • Outside food
    • Weapons
    • Sporting equipment
    • Aerosols
    • Candles and incense

    2. Can I get visitors in residential rehab?

    The specifics of when and how can vary, but a vast majority of residential treatment centres do allow for visitors.

    3. Do I have to go to a residential place for treatment?

    Not at all. Treatment is generally divided into two categories, inpatient (residential) and outpatient (at home, with visits to a centre). Both choices will alter the environment of your journey, but they’re both as valid as each other.

    Residential treatment is generally recommended for those with moderate to severe dependencies. Overall it’s a much more intense environment than at-home treatment. It puts participants in a place where both treatment and access to care are there whenever they need them.

    Outpatient treatment on the other hand is by nature less structured, putting much more of your healing in your hands. Some people with less severe issues can handle this, while others can’t.
