Deciding to rehabilitate from an alcohol or drug addiction is the single most important decision anyone can make. Not only will this significantly increase your quality of life but can improve all areas of your health, both physical and mental.

Why is it important to act fast?
Have you experienced any of the extremely negative effects of substance abuse? If not, you may believe that attending rehab is not needed at this current moment in your life. For others, rehab is their last chance at treating the psychological and physical effects caused by long-term abuse.
Visiting rehab can be useful for everyone, not just those with severe addictions. If you have been abusing substances for a while it may be in your best interest to attend now, rather than later when you have to deal with a whole host of negative side effects.
Rehab not only helps treat addiction but is a place of education, should you utilise it correctly. Through workshops and group sessions, you can begin to see how seeking urgent care will always be in your best interest. For this reason, attending rehab as soon as possible can help to reduce the chances of irreversible damage to your health.
There is no denying rehab can be hard, however, with the right support and motivation, you can find yourself ready to begin the next chapter of your life, free from drugs and alcohol.
Experience these levels of care and more by contacting us today and finding the most suitable clinic in the Hitchin area.
What are the long-term effects of addiction?
Abuse of drugs and alcohol can cause a wide range of effects on the body and mind. Whilst it is difficult to determine specifics without knowing your circumstances, negative effects are the general result of substance abuse.
Of course, the most threatening is the effect on your physical and mental health where substance abuse can cause irreversible damage. This can include damage to your nervous system and organs, as well as an increase in the development of life-changing conditions such as diabetes and tuberculosis, not including death.
Whilst these things are not experienced by everyone who abuses substances, it is more a general overview of the effects that can be caused by prolonged use.
Emotional effects can also be experienced such as:
- A breakdown in relationships with loved ones
- Negative shifts in family dynamics
- Loss of career
- Issues with finances and the law
- Decreased self-esteem
- Reduced quality of life
Many people with addiction often fail to believe that these things can happen to them as they are consumed by the way drugs and alcohol make them feel. At some point, negative effects are inescapable, which is why we ask all prospective clients to reach out before more damage is done.
Through an intensive rehabilitation programme, you can begin to treat your body and mind, allowing yourself to get back on track and lead a healthy life.
