As you can see, there are hundreds of people living in Telford who are struggling from addiction issues.
Whilst for some people, it might be obvious that you are struggling from a drug and alcohol addiction, for others it might be harder to identify.
In fact, some people go their entire lives hiding their addiction issues from those who are closest to them. The medical industry uses the term ‘functioning addict’ to describe these individuals.
Unfortunately, by hiding their addiction, many people who suffer from addiction issues never get the help that they desperately need.
This is why it is incredibly important to look out for the following signs and symptoms if you think that someone you know and love is suffering from an addiction issue, so that you can encourage them to get the help that they need.
As discussed above, some people will be really good at hiding their drug and alcohol addiction symptoms. This is why it is important to look out for these symptoms and act quickly if you think that someone you know and love is addicted to drugs or alcohol.
There are many different reasons why someone might become addicted to certain drugs and substances.
Whilst no drug or alcohol addiction story is the same, there are some common risk factors that make it more likely that someone would become addicted to substances.
Some of these are listed and explained below.
This is because a lot of people who suffer from mental health issues go on to use drugs and alcohol as a way of distracting from their issues and use addictive substances to try to take away the pain of their mental health issues.
Unfortunately, abusing drugs and alcohol when you are already suffering from a mental health issue will only make your symptoms worse, and can leave you feeling worse in the short and long term.
Unfortunately, if you have been exposed to any form of trauma as a child then you are more likely to engage in risky behaviour such as abusing drugs and alcohol.
This is particularly true if you have grown up surrounded by people who frequently abuse drugs and alcohol, and have been doing so openly in front of you as you have grown up.
In fact, recent studies have found that children of addicts are almost 50% to 80% more likely to abuse drugs and other substances themselves compared to those who have not grown up surrounded by addiction issues.
There is much debate surrounding whether this is down to genetics or exposure, with most studies coming to the conclusion that it is usually a mixture of both.
If you have a high tolerance to a certain drug or substance such as alcohol, then you are more likely to become addicted to that substance.
This is because your body requires more of the substance to get the same effects that you once had, meaning that your body becomes reliant on a high amount of the substance in order to function.
In addition to this, those who are quite sensitive to certain drugs and substances are more likely to become addicted to them.
Unfortunately, lots of people become addicted to drugs and other substances when they are younger, due to the desire to experiment and down to peer pressure.
Lots of people are simply curious as to what it would be like if they were to get ‘high’ or ‘drunk’ which can easily lead to excessive use and eventually, addiction.
Lots of people who are prescribed certain medications easily become addicted to them, sometimes without even realising it. Unfortunately, lots of prescribed medications are highly addictive which do their job, but can sometimes leave you with withdrawal symptoms.
Unfortunately, lots of people who tend to ‘work hard’ find themselves ‘playing harder’ which can involve the use of certain drugs and other substances. This is true amongst many University students as well as working professionals up and down the country.
This usually tends to happen amongst people working in industries in London and other big cities, especially within big corporations who require long working hours.
People in these jobs tend to abuse substances because they need to concentrate during their working hours, or simply stay up throughout the night to continue working. Unfortunately, this has a huge impact on their health and is not sustainable in any way.
Unfortunately, the majority of people who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction issues have been in denial at some point about their addiction. We’ve all tried to deny something, but when it comes to addiction, denying that you have a problem can put your health and even your life at risk.
There are lots of different types of denial, and lots of reasons why people try to deny that they have addiction issues.
Some people try to convince themselves that there isn’t a problem at all, whereas some people try to convince themselves that they will get help in the future, but just not right now.
Others try to deny that their addiction is a result of trauma, and others try to deny their issues to their family whilst knowing deep down that there are issues.
Whilst living in denial might feel comfy, it is not a long term solution. In fact, denying your addiction issues will only make them worse. In order to get the help that you need, you have to overcome your denial and admit that there is a problem.
By attending drug and alcohol rehab in Telford, we will be able to help you to overcome your denial, any traumas and triggers and help you carve a path towards a better and healthier life.
Drug and alcohol rehab in Telford is an incredibly simple process. If you qualify for drug and alcohol rehab in Telford, then you will be admitted into a rehab centre.
If you go through the NHS for your treatment, you might have to wait a number of weeks before being admitted into treatment.
If you opt for private drug and alcohol rehab in Telford then you should be seen almost immediately. Once you are admitted, the severity of your addiction will be assessed.
It is normal during this stage of the process for the doctors within your rehab centre to ask you lots of different questions about your addiction issues. They will need to establish how severe your addiction is, what you are addicted to and whether you suffer from a dual diagnosis or not.
Drug and alcohol rehab in Telford works by first providing you with a detox. This detox is where you withdraw from the substance you are addicted to and by the end of your detox, your body will no longer be addicted to the substances in question.
Only once you have completed this withdrawal and detox will you be in a position to receive any therapy. Your therapy will last a number of weeks, and will involve a mix of different techniques.
This will likely include types of therapy techniques including group therapy, family therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and motivational interviewing.
There are two types of rehab across Telford, including outpatient rehab and inpatient rehab. Inpatient rehab involves moving into the rehab centre for a set period of time, and outpatient rehab involves living at home for the duration of your treatment.
The differences between outpatient rehab treatment and inpatient rehab treatment are really important to understand, as which type of treatment you need to attend depends on a number of factors.
There are a whole host of benefits attending inpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Telford. For example, when attending inpatient rehab you will be given a place to sleep and three meals a day.
Unfortunately, lots of people who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction issues also suffer from housing issues and homelessness.
Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Telford gives people a roof over their head, whilst being given the chance to detox in a safe and monitored environment, which a lot of people who are addicted to drugs simply do not have.
You will also be monitored by doctors 24/7, and will be provided with medication if your symptoms start to get too severe.
Once your detox is complete you will then sit down with a therapist to assess your psychological addiction. This will be one of the most rewarding parts of your recovery, which will see you starting to overcome your traumas and any triggers.
The greatest benefit to this is that you don’t have to drop all your responsibilities to attend and receive treatment. This is especially important if you have children to look after, or are still hoping to receive treatment whilst holding down a job.
This is the best option if you have a mild addiction issue, and don’t need to attend inpatient treatment in order to recover. This is only an option if you have a supportive home environment.
Most people who attend drug and alcohol rehab in Telford need to undergo a medical and physical drug and alcohol detox in order to successfully recover. If you have ever suffered from an addiction yourself then you will know how important and life changing your detox will be.
During your detox, you will gradually reduce the amount of drugs or alcohol you abuse until you no longer feel the need to consume anything at all. This works for those with even the most severe drug and alcohol addictions.
You must be prepared to experience withdrawal symptoms, which can make it hard to detox.
Everyone’s addiction and detox is different, but there are some very common withdrawal symptoms people tend to experience after withdrawing for even just a few hours. These are listed below:
As previously discussed, not everyone will experience all of these symptoms and some people experience them more severely than others do.
