What Are My Addiction Recovery Options in Bedfordshire?

It is much harder to deal with addiction if you are facing it alone. Admitting that you need help to overcome this type of problem may feel like a big step to take, but it is often what is necessary in order to break free from addiction. The problem is that the addicted part of your mind wants to keep you alone and overpowered, and it will throw up all types of justification to rationalise this. This is part of the denial of addiction, and it is a way of thinking that is likely to lead to great suffering. If you are dealing with addiction in Bedfordshire, we strongly suggest that you consider using the resources available to help you break away from this self-destructive behaviour. In order to discover more about what these resources are, you can contact us here on 0800 140 4824.

Reasons Not To Go It Alone In Recovery

Only you have the power to break away from addiction, but in order to make this happen you will usually need the help of other people are to use different resources. There are a number of powerful reasons for why going it alone will often not work such as:

· Most people who are struggling with addiction problems will already have tried to cut down or stop the substance abuse. The person may have a long history of failed attempts at controlling this problem. There is an old saying that is relevant here – if you keep on doing the same things, the same things will keep on happening. If the person wants a different result this time, they will probably benefit from using a different approach and this could be rehab.

· When people stop using alcohol or drugs they will usually be back where they were before they began the substance abuse. This means that the things that drove them into addiction in the first place will probably still be there. The person will be back where they started, and this is likely to cause them to relapse or turn to other behaviours that are also self-destructive. In order to deal with these original causes of addiction, the individual can benefit greatly from some type of treatment programme and therapy.

· It is common for people to relapse during the withdrawal stage of recovery. It can be hard to make it through these uncomfortable symptoms alone because the individual knows that they can escape the discomfort by giving into temptation. With the right type of support, the person will be far more likely to make it through this initial stage.

· Getting sober is not just about giving up the substance abuse – it is more about finding a way of life that is so satisfying that the individual no longer feels the need to turn to alcohol or drugs. It is possible to give up the substance abuse and still suffer, but the goal of something like rehab is to lead the person to a much better place in life.

· A treatment programme will provide the individual with all the tools and strategies they are going to need in order to find success in life.
