Denial, addiction, and intervention
For many, living with addiction itself isn’t the most challenging or the most dangerous aspect of substance use. For these individuals, denial is the deadly feeling that is set to cause the most damage.
When a person dealing with addiction is aware of their situation, it allows them to reach out for help, and find the vital treatment that they require, leading usually to a full recovery and a drug-and-alcohol-free life.
For those that are still denying the existence of addiction, the addiction actually becomes the secondary danger behind that denial. This is because if they are not open to admitting that their situation warrants professional or medical intervention and treatment, they won’t receive it.
Many others will agree that they may have a problem with drugs or alcohol, and may even call it an addiction, but still believe that their personal situation is not yet at a level that requires treatment. Unfortunately, this is usually not the case, and professional treatment can benefit those at any stage of addiction.
Denying or underestimating an addiction can lead to many individuals not receiving the key addiction treatment that could be the difference between their life and death.
We don’t want this to be the way and believe everyone has the right to recover from an addiction.
If this sounds like someone you know, we offer intervention services for those concerned about their loved ones. Reach out to us here at OK Rehab via our telephone number or online form, and we can discuss your options for dealing with someone in denial.
Similarly, if this sounds like you and you are beginning to become more aware of your situation, do not hesitate to get in contact with us today, and we can help you to further understand the severity of your condition.
Is rehab really for me?
For those at the brave stage of admission of addiction, wondering what step to take next is common. With the majority of these individuals, we almost always recommend rehab.
There are a few common misconceptions that surround rehab and what occurs inside, mostly perpetuated by negative stereotypes in modern media. Rest assured that rehab is nowhere near like how it is usually portrayed on screen, and is in fact a welcoming and safe environment, rather than a scary and controlling place.
It is because of these portrayals and myths surrounding the rehab experience that many individuals will refuse to consider rehab as a viable option for addiction treatment.
Whilst it is true that there are plenty of other options you can explore when searching for treatment, it has remained a constant over the years that rehab is the best choice, specifically with residential rehab programmes.
This is why even if you believe rehab is not the option for you, due to the lesser nature of your addiction, the lower class of substance that you have used, or any other reasons, rehab can still be extremely beneficial to you and is usually the most suitable choice if you wish to reach a full recovery.
Some people will believe that what they are suffering from is not in fact addiction and that they do not need professional treatment such as rehab. Whilst many people do manage to recreationally use drugs or drink and do so responsibly without it becoming an addiction, this is not true for everybody.
Below are some signs and symptoms of a drug or alcohol addiction that you may have noticed in your life recently:
- Your physical appearance has changed drastically, such as an unexpected loss of weight or changes in your skin
- You are noticing an increase in your tolerance for the substance you use each time you use it
- You are becoming more out of breath than usual when performing physical activity
- You are experiencing a lack of concern over your overall physical appearance and/or personal hygiene
- You are struggling to sleep at night or have unusually disrupted sleeping patterns
- You experience shakes, nausea, headaches, dizziness or muscle pain when you are withdrawn from the substance for a short period of time
Social or behavioural symptoms
- You are losing interest in activities/hobbies/events that used to be important to you
- You are withdrawing from responsibilities both in your social and work life
- You have attempted to stop using the substance before but have failed
- You are more secretive and dishonest, especially when it concerns your use of the substance
- You have a hidden stash of the substance somewhere
- You are continuing to use the substance even though you know the negative outcomes
- You are hiding your substance use from loved ones

- You are experiencing mood swings, increased temper, tiredness, paranoia, defensiveness or agitation
- You are struggling to focus and concentrate

What treatments to expect
During your stay at a drug and alcohol rehab in Warwickshire, you will experience a wealth of options when it comes to addiction treatments. What you undergo and participate in will be determined by the assessments we perform at the beginning of your admissions process.
These assessments will be simple and easy and require little effort from you. They will allow us to extract information about you and your addiction such as the length and severity of your addiction, the substance/substances you have used, and any personal requirements or concerns you may have about your treatment. Aspects of your physical and psychological health will also be evaluated and considered when deciding your treatment plans.
Because of this, we cannot at this time detail exactly what your time in rehab will look like, as every client will experience something different.
However, some of the treatments you can expect to encounter, include:
1. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy & Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
Known sometimes as simply CBT, cognitive behavioural therapy follows the idea that everything contributes to the way we view the world and our behaviours towards it, from our own past experiences to the way we speak to ourselves.
This method of therapy aims to challenge the individual’s pre-existing ideas to help them become more aware of their own thoughts and reactions to the world around them.
Similar to CBT, DBT focuses on the belief that some people are just more likely to experience more extreme emotions than others, giving them a higher chance of these emotions leading to substance abuse, and also making it harder for them to reach a recovery.
This therapy works to provide the necessary skills to be able to cope with these heightened emotions in a healthier and more productive way.
2. Family therapy
Addiction is known to not just take a toll on the individual suffering from it, but also their close family.
This therapy brings the whole family together to discuss the impact the addiction has had on them and allows a safe space for loved ones to develop strategies to support each other and the person dealing with the addiction.
3. Group therapy
The most common form of therapy for those with addiction is group therapy, a treatment where people of all different backgrounds that are suffering through similar situations can come together and discuss their lives and addictions.
This therapy gives the opportunity for individuals to feel like part of a network and proves that they are never alone in their struggle.
Group therapy works best when coupled with individual therapy sessions, so clients can reap the benefits of group discussions but also have time to focus solely on themselves.
This is not an exhaustive list, and there are other forms of treatment such as acceptance and commitment therapy, motivation enhancement therapy, and contingency management that you may participate in during your time in rehab. These methods of treatment can be used alone or in combination with one another to treat addiction, but all are proven to further aid recovery.
When you eventually leave the rehabilitation facility of your choosing, you will be provided with a detailed aftercare treatment plan, which will guide you through life back home.
Being in the position to be able to leave rehab may seem impossible now, but during your stay, you will have withdrawn from drugs and alcohol, come to terms with your addiction, discovered new coping techniques and identified the emotional triggers to avoid. All in all, you will be prepared for a life free from substance use.
The responsibility to continue the improvements you made in rehab will fall to you, and it will be up to you to maintain the important progress made in the therapies you participated in.
Of course, if you do require any more support our helpline is always open, and our team is always on hand to offer assistance wherever and whenever you may need it.
