Drug and Alcohol Rehab Bloxwich
There’s never been a greater need for drug and alcohol rehab centres in the Bloxwich area. The number of addicts in the United Kingdom is soaring and more needs to be done for people suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Did you know that addiction is a medically diagnosed disease? We’ll bet you didn’t – and that’s not your fault. Education about addiction is shockingly low in the United Kingdom. Many people, whether or not they realise it, can make things worse for addicts. Addiction is one of few illnesses which are actively encouraged, rather than criticised, by the British public.
But at Cassiobury Court, we know everything there is to know about addiction. We understand why people become addicted in the first place. Our expert staff at addiction treatment centres know the quickest and most effective way to get you back on track. But we don’t stop there. We offer patients an extensive aftercare programme to ensure a long-term recovery. With our team, addiction can be a memory of the past.
In today’s article, we’re going to look at who suffers from addiction. We’ll look at some of the warning signs and further illnesses caused by addiction.
If you’re in the Wolverhampton, Walsall or West Midlands area, please get in touch with our team today. Call 0800 001 4070 to find out more about our Bloxwich drug and alcohol rehab centre.
Who Suffers from Addiction?
So if addiction is so widespread and as common as we say it is, then who suffers from it? Surely by now, we’d be able to pinpoint vulnerable people, and those more likely to suffer from addiction?
Sadly, it’s never as straightforward as that. Despite extensive study and research, no one defining the cause of addiction has been discovered. Many studies point to circumstances and patterns which could potentially lead to somebody becoming addicted. But there is little clarity on one single fundamental cause.
The truth is that addictive disorders are incredibly complex and can affect just about anybody. Many people of different age, religion, background and social standing contact our rehab centre. There’s a harmful perception that only poor, emotionally damaged people will become addicted. The reality could not be further from that.
Despite not knowing exactly what leads to addiction, scientists have discovered that other factors may influence one’s likelihood of suffering from addiction.
Traumatic historical events can lead to several difficult emotions. Some people will struggle to manage these feelings and may try to balance these difficult feelings with alcohol and drugs. A history of addiction with other family members could also see your chances increased, as well as a bad home environment.
The Warning Signs of Addiction
If you are suffering from addiction, it’s important that you seek help immediately. Addiction treatment has never been more advanced and we have a high-quality care programme that can help.There’s no shame in admitting that you have an alcohol or drug addiction. The only shame is continuing to live in denial.
If you don’t believe that you’re suffering from addiction but still find yourself abusing substances, then you need to be aware of the warning signs of addiction. A classic sign of addiction is believing that you have everything under control. Your brain will send signals to the rest of your body forcing you to crave more substances, even when you’re aware of the harm they’re causing. As you continue to battle addiction, ironically, you’ll almost completely lose control.
Another tell-tale sign of addiction is suffering from withdrawal symptoms. These could include anything from headaches and dizziness to paranoia and shakiness. But symptoms could be more serious. Heart problems and even organ failure aren’t uncommon. You may also be damaging your mental health. Paranoia, bipolarity and anxiety tend to go hand-in-hand with addiction. Your body, as well as your brain, begins to crave regular doses of harmful substances.
For those deep in the grip of an alcohol addiction, the withdrawal symptoms can even be fatal. Many addicts – in a moment of apparent clarity – will decide to go ‘cold turkey’. And yet, shocking your body into 24 hours without alcohol could cause many of your organs to shut down completely.
If you’re suffering from any symptoms of addiction then you need to contact our Cassiobury Court team today. We have alcohol rehabs in the West Midlands and a range of treatment plans which are guaranteed to help.
