Addiction and its associated issues
There are some common features between the two issues, though it is necessary to be able to distinguish the two and understand the impacts that both can have on an individual’s lifestyle and quality of life.
Along with this, it is also important to assess when a situation requires professional intervention and care. There is hardly ever a benefit in delaying this care, so beginning to research and assess the different rehabilitation options available is a must for those who believe that they are struggling with addiction.
Recognising a drug and alcohol addiction in yourself or others
In some cases, an addiction can develop slowly over a period of constant substance use. This does not necessarily mean heavy use but understanding when drug and alcohol consumption becomes too much can be difficult.
Generally, OK Rehab lays out a few ‘base’ questions to help individuals assess their consumption of drugs and alcohol. Although these are not the most specific questions, they help to promote individuals to think about their potential substance abuse.
Below are some examples of the questions you may ask yourself or others:
- Do I need to take more and more of a substance to get the same effect?
- Would it be difficult to stop taking these substances altogether?
- Has taking this substance impacted your physical or mental well-being?
- If you have tried to stop taking the substance, did you experience withdrawal symptoms consistently?
- Is your substance use interfering with other areas of your life such as finances, relationships, or your career?
If any of your answers to the above questions surprise you or make you begin to consider rehabilitation more seriously, then it is likely that drug and/or alcohol abuse is starting to impact your life in a serious way.
Depending on the history of this problem i.e., the length and severity of the substance abuse, there could be a number of more serious factors that are also impacting your life. Seeking and researching different rehab options is therefore of the utmost importance.
Overcoming and recovering from addiction
When considering addiction treatment, the most important factor to consider is the relevance and appropriateness of the treatment. There is no use in partaking in treatments that are not suitable for your specific needs.
For example, someone who wants to rehabilitate close to home would not benefit much from a rehab centre in a different country.
Additionally, entering a waiting list or delaying treatment will also not be beneficial. Through other addiction treatment providers such as the NHS, care is often postponed by long waiting lists.
With OK Rehab, addiction care can begin after just one initial telephone consultation.
The advice we offer to most people who contact us is to begin researching and educating themselves on different rehabilitation options available to them.
Whether this is taking a look at facilities offered by different rehab centres or reading about experiences in group therapy, OK Rehab is a firm believer in individuals understanding the process of addiction therapy as well as their addiction itself.
Addiction treatment programmes in Prescot
For those individuals who are ready to progress with addiction treatments and care, OK Rehab is ready to provide support in any way necessary.
With our comprehensive referral programme, OK Rehab is in contact with leading addiction treatment providers including dedicated rehabilitation centres, counselling services, and treatment programmes to name a few.
Most individuals opt to remain local when considering treatments for convenience or financial reasons. This is generally the most recommended and appropriate option, though it is not acceptable for every single case.
Whatever your preferences, OK Rehab will take them into account when considering your addiction treatment programme. We never make decisions without your wellbeing in mind, and we constantly strive to match clients to service in the most optimal way possible.
Modern addiction treatments
Most rehab centres and treatment programme providers offer the most modern and up-to-date treatments available.
Due to the increasing statistics for the number of individuals affected by addiction in the UK, it is essential now more than ever that treatments offered to clients are at the forefront of addiction research.
A more recent method of addiction care is the holistic approach. This refers to an addiction programme in which all elements of life affected by addiction are considered and treated accordingly.
Additionally, support will be provided to friends and family in the form of Family Drug Support classes as well as Relapse Risk Reduction workshops and treatments.
