About drug and alcohol addiction

Addiction is a chronic relapsing brain disease, defined by a number of different physical and psychological dependencies on harmful substances like drugs, alcohol, and can even refer to certain behavioural addictions like gambling.

Addiction to drugs and alcohol affects the way that a person thinks, feels, and behaves. Many people who suffer from addiction are aware of their problem but are simply unable to stop the negative patterns of behaviour – particularly without the appropriate support.

It is important to understand that addiction is a disease and not necessarily a sign of weakness or personal failing (as many people perceive it to be). There is no shame in struggling. In fact, recognising and accepting the fact that you may be suffering and having the courage to ask for help is the strong thing to do.

Drug and alcohol abuse is widespread in the UK and has been on the rise in recent years. Fortunately, there are ways that you can access the help that you need to combat your addiction and start working toward long term recovery: – primarily, rehab in Bath.

Before we explore the various rehab treatment programmes available, let’s take a brief look at drug and alcohol abuse and how these patterns can be recognised.

Drug Abuse

Drug abuse is becoming more and more common in the UK. This is largely to do with how easily accessible many addictive substances are.

What typically starts out as a recreational activity with friends can soon turn into an uncontrollable desire to consume drugs and achieve the desired high.

One of the biggest problems with prolonged drug abuse is the fact that people build tolerance to the substance. As such, in order to feel a high they need to consume higher dosages. Not only is this incredibly dangerous, but it starts to rewire the chemistry of the brain making it even harder to think about anything else other than obtaining and consuming the drug.

If you feel that you may be suffering from addiction, or if you suspect that a loved one might be using, below are a few symptoms to look out for.

Short & Long Term Symptoms of Drug Addiction

Drug addiction is problematic even in the short term. However, as you can see from the list of symptoms below, long term drug addiction can be absolutely devastating to a person’s physical and mental health.

Drug and alcohol rehab Bath - How does it work?

Drug and alcohol rehab in Bath can help you overcome your addiction for good. But how does it work? What is involved with the rehabilitation process and can it really help you recover? Let’s take a closer look at the process and what treatment programmes are available.

Step 1 - Intake:

The first step in the drug and alcohol rehabilitation process in one of our Bath rehab centres is intake. The admissions process is when you go through an initial assessment with our medical staff and addiction specialists to get a better understanding of what you are struggling with.

They will look at your current living situation, any underlying mental health issues that you may be struggling with, what your physical health is like, and then tailor a treatment programme to your unique situation (there is no on-size fits all approach).

Step 2 - Detox:

Once you have your treatment programme and you have been processed and entered into the drug or alcohol treatment centres in Bath, you will then go through a medically assisted detox. This is when you body is cleansed of any harmful substances so that you can start your rehabilitation with a clean slate.

Drug and alcohol detox can be dangerous depending on the severity of your addiction. However, the good news is that you will be under close medical supervision, monitoring your vital signs, and ensuring that you can get through the painful symptoms of withdrawal as safely and comfortably as possible.


Step 3 - Long term treatment efforts:

Following your detox, it is time to start working on your individual and group therapy sessions. Depending on what kind of recovery plan you are on, you will be tasked with taking part in a variety of psychotherapeutic treatments, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (to identify the root cause of your addiction and learn coping mechanisms), group sessions with friends and family (to help repair your relationships), and motivational therapy.

The purpose of these various treatments is to help you come to terms with your addiction, better understand your mental health and the various triggers that may have led to your substance abuse disorder, and so on.

When you have a better understanding of your own mental health problems and what past traumas may have contributed to your addiction, you will be better armed to combat your addiction and prevent relapse in the future.

Step 4 - Recovery and aftercare:

The length of your stay at our residential rehab facility in Bath may vary depending on a variety of different factors (e.g., severity of your addiction). The average duration however, can be anywhere between 30 and 90-days.

Once you have completed your rehabilitation treatment and therapy sessions, your treatment provider will then begin working on a long term recovery and aftercare plan for you.

This is to ensure that even after you leave the residential rehab facility, that you continue with your rehab process – which will be ongoing.

This will include anything from taking part in various support groups, speaking with individual therapists about any mental health issues you may be struggling with, and structuring your routine with new, healthy habits to help you stay on the right path.
