    The symptoms of addiction

    Sadly, binge drinking and casual drug use are still a big part of popular culture in this country, particularly when it comes to nightlife. This means that millions of people use drugs and drink alcohol on a regular basis, which causes a whole range of social problems.

    Still, most of these people will not develop a life-altering addiction as a result of their use. This forces us to ask – at what point does casual drug use or drinking become an addiction? Well, there are certain sings to look out for, whether you are concerned about yourself or someone else.

    You should be concerned if:

    • Your alcohol or drug use has had a long-term effect on your physical or mental health
    • You cannot go for a single day without using or drinking alcohol
    • You have sold your possessions or committed a crime in order to afford drugs or alcohol
    • You have repeatedly dropped any of your responsibilities (work, kids, family) to use drugs or alcohol
    • You have lied to your loved ones about your drug use, or otherwise concealed it

    If any of the above sound familiar to you, it is time to reach out for help. Drug or alcohol addiction is not something that you need to be ashamed of – the truth is, it could happen to anyone. Nevertheless, it is important to address the issue and get help as soon as possible.

    If you want to do this, the most effective method of treatment is rehab. If you’re worried about the substance abuse of someone you know, we can provide free advice on how best to arrange an intervention for that person.

    This is often the most effective way of getting through to someone in addiction.

    Residential rehab vs. outpatient care

    Quite a few of the people who reach out to us ask about the possibility of outpatient care – in other words, staying at home and travelling by day to the clinic for therapy and classes. This is an appealing option for many, particularly those who have a lot of responsibilities to take care of, and are perhaps unsure about the idea of leaving them on hold for a month. Outpatient treatment is a possibility.

    However, it only recommended for a small proportion of patients. If your drug addiction is on the more severe end of the spectrum, outpatient care will not be appropriate for you, and you will need to attend rehab as an inpatient.

    Attending rehab as an outpatient is really only suitable for those who live within a reasonable distance of the clinic, whose addiction is not severe, and who also do not have any problems at home that may complicate their recovery – for example, a toxic partner or other undesirable living situation.

    The vast majority of people who come through rehab referral do not meet these criteria, and therefore outpatient care would not be recommended to them. Still, this is something that we can discuss in detail during your telephone consultation.

    What to expect from your stay at rehab

    Once you arrive at the clinic, the first thing to do will be a full medically supervised detox. It is vital that detox is carried out this way, under the guidance of medical professionals.

    There is always the potential for seizures and other serious complications if the detox is not handled properly, especially with opiates and alcohol. This is why you should never try to do a detox by yourself, or go ‘cold turkey’.

    In fact, you should not feel like you have to reduce your substance consumption before arriving at the rehab clinic – just let the professionals take care of you.

    The detox clinicians will be able to manage any undesirable symptoms, whether physical or psychological. If you are withdrawing from an opiate or from heavy alcohol abuse, your detox will likely include the use of a medication such as Librium or Methadone.

    Withdrawal from these substances can be particularly challenging, with the possibility of serious physical symptoms, as well as increased anxiety, low mood, and sleeplessness. Because of this, is vital that your detox is handled by professionals. Overall, detox should take between 7 and 10 days to complete.

    The next stage of rehab is therapy, which will be organised in a schedule, along with other complementary activities. The bulk of your therapy plan will likely include things like cognitive behavioural therapy, group therapy sessions, individual counselling, and dialectal behavioural therapy.

    The idea is to give you a better understanding of your addiction triggers, of addiction in general, and of yourself. You will benefit from being part of a tight-knit community of other rehab residents, with whom you will have regular group meetings, overseen by a professional or senior resident.

    This gives you a great opportunity to learn from others and to get things off your chest.

    The final phase of treatment, during the last few days, is preparing for what is to come. Just as it might have been daunting to go into rehab in the first place, you may also find yourself being apprehensive about going back into the wider world.

    These kinds of anxieties are perfectly normal and can be managed. To help you on your way, the treatment team will help you to put together a relapse prevention plan, which will outline positive steps that you can take in order to boost your chances of long-term recovery once you are out.

    This could include regular therapy sessions, reassessing your friendships and relationships, and the utilisation of coping techniques that you have learned at rehab. Lifelong recovery is possible, but it will take hard work and commitment.

    The cost and timeframe of rehab

    As you might expect, the two main concerns that people have when contacting us about potential rehab treatment is how much money it will cost, and how long they will need to stay at the facility. treatment. In terms of pricing, it is not possible to give an exact cost without speaking to you first.

    This is because every private rehab clinic has their own price, and different standards of accommodation. Your bill total will also depend on whether you opt for a single occupancy room or a multiple occupancy toom during your stay.

    In terms of timeframe, this is more straightforward to answer – most people stay at rehab for a total of about 28 days. This provides enough time to go through detox, to get help through therapy and other treatments, and to prepare for their reintegration into the wider world.

    The only potential complication is that it will take some people longer than others to go through detox, which could have a knock-on effect in terms of timeframe. This extra time in detox is more likely to happen in patients who have been taking opiates, or abusing alcohol on a long-term basis.
