Common Addiction Questions

Do I Have an Addiction Problem?

It can be difficult for people to assess their own relationship with alcohol or drugs. The main problems is that denial usually goes hand-in-hand in addiction, and even when the individual is willing to admit that they have a problem they are likely to greatly underestimate it. There is also a great deal of misunderstanding about the terminology used. People can get hung up on words such as “drug addict,” “alcoholic,” and “substance abuser”. To keep things simple it is best to consider addiction as a behaviour that you are engaged in that is obviously causing you harm, but you feel unable to stop. If you fit these criteria you will likely have an addiction problem, and you need help to stop.

Do I Need Addiction Treatment to End Addiction?

There are many examples of people who were addicted to alcohol or drugs but were unable to stop without any help. The reality is that most people do not seem to be able to manage this alone because they are tied to addiction too strongly. It also needs to be kept in mind that there is a difference between stopping an addiction and staying stopped – people will find the former much easier to accomplish than the latter. The real goal of addiction treatment is not to make the individual stop drinking or using drugs, but to give them the basis of a sober life that they will cherish. Addiction treatment will greatly increase the likelihood of people breaking away from addiction for good, so it is definitely something worth considering.

Do I Need Rehab?

Rehab is one of the most effective addiction treatment options around for a number of reasons including:

  • The individual will be in a therapeutic and nurturing environment during those important first few weeks of recovery.
  • Many of these residential programmes also offer detox beds, and this means that the individual will be kept safe as they progress through their withdrawal symptoms
  • The individual will be able to focus all their attention on getting better. By staying in this programme, they will not have to worry about their normal concerns such as work or taking care of their family. Addiction is a serious business, and it requires the individual’s full attention in order to break away from it.
  • The person will be protected from the usual temptations and stresses during their stay in rehab.
  • They will have the opportunity to begin looking at the driving force behind their addiction, and to learn how to deal with this underlying cause of addiction.
  • The individual will have the opportunity to pick up coping skills that will benefit them greatly as they go forward.
  • The person will have the opportunity to develop a programme for living. This will give their life purpose and meaning going forward.
  • They will be surrounded by all the resources they are going to need in order to build a strong recovery.
  • They will be supported 24 hours of the day.

The fact that a residential rehab programme can offer so much means that it is certainly something that people should consider if they are serious about breaking away from addiction.

Will Rehab Cure My Addiction?

The truth is that no rehab in the world will be able to cure an addiction. All this type of facility can do is provide the individual with the tools they need, and offer them protection and support during those early weeks and months. The only thing that will ensure success in rehab is the individual’s own determination. If they are 100 % committed to this new life, there will be no real way that they can fail. The individual can never be cured from addiction in the sense that they can use these substances again safely, but they certainly can build a life free from these addictions.

Is Private Rehab Worth the Money?

Rehab is one of the most important investments that people can make – they will be investing in their own future. Even those individuals who may be eligible for NHS rehab options may still want to choose private rehab if this means getting the best possible programme. These days many people are choosing to travel abroad for rehab help. This is because it means that they will benefit from top class luxury rehab programmes, while paying much less than they would at home. If the individual remains sober, they will soon recover the financial investment they spend, even on an expensive programme.

What Happens After Rehab?

Addiction treatment does not end as soon as the person leaves rehab – there is no real graduation day from this facility. In order to stay sober, the individual will need to benefit from some type of aftercare programme. This will ensure that they continue to make progress and get the help they need. Some people will benefit from an aftercare programme provided by a rehab programme, but there are also self-help options such as the 12 Step groups. The type of aftercare the individual chooses is not so important – the main thing is that it works for the individual and keeps them moving forward.

Are There Outpatient Addiction Treatment Options?

There are now many options available for people who are unable to enter a residential treatment programme.  This would include things like outpatient rehab and outpatient detox. We will be happy to discuss these options with you to decide if they can work for you. Call us right now by phone or just text the word “help” to 66777.
