I’m Not Sure If I’m Addicted to Drugs
Addiction is not black and white, and you cannot diagnose someone with an addiction by just looking at a person. The only person that can tell whether or not you might be addicted, is yourself. That is why it is important you have a good look into the mirror and ask yourself some tough questions.
Do you feel your substance use is interfering with your ability to function properly both in your personal circle and in your professional circle? Do you feel you are in financial trouble due to drug use? Most importantly however, do you feel that any of those questions are applicable to yourself?
Many addicts believe they aren’t addicted, and there are a variety of reasons behind that. Many addicts believe that they are not addicted because their brain has been affected by repeated drug use. Your brain is essentially hijacked due to severe drug abuse. To add to that, there is a certain stigma around addiction. People still believe that addicts are weak, and that admitting to an addiction is weak. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Addiction is an illness. Like many people with an illness, there is not much you can do about, so you do not have to be ashamed at all. This is why it is important that you look for help. If you are reading this page, it means that you are on the right path as you have given your drug use a thought. Admitting that you are indeed addicted to it is the first step towards recovery.
If you indeed have been suffering from drug addiction, and you wish to make a change in your situation – the solution is simple. Call us today on a 01923 369 161, and one of our specialists will be able to have a quick chat with you about your situation, and how we can help you.
After you have spoken to one of our specialists about these issues, we can take you in at our Drug Rehab Bristol Clinic, that is based in the city of Watford, only an hour and a half away from Bristol. We are able to transport you from your home to our centre in Watford. You will have your own room and space, where you can rest and focus on your recovery.
After we take you in, we start off with drug detox. Our drug detox treatment programme is primarily designed to help clients develop new ways of controlling their drug use or achieve total abstinence from drugs and help you stay that way. Choosing our treatment programme will inevitably mean you will need an initial drug detox programme. This aims to eradicate the drug presence from your system with the support of a clinical prescribing regime to help you safely detox from alcohol and cope with the withdrawal effects that can be experienced while detoxing.
Once you have finished the Drug Detox period, we follow up with the rehab programme. During the twenty-eight-day rehab programme, we shall mostly focus on life after rehab. Many ex-addicts relapse due to the fact that there are no coping mechanisms for problems that caused them to drink in the first place. From Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to alternative therapies such as Reiki – there are many options based on your situation.
Suffering From Alcohol Addiction in Bristol
Alcohol is one of the most popular substances worldwide. Worldwide, billions of people consume it regularly and responsibly. There are no health issues associated with occasional use of alcohol – in fact, in some cases it can improve your health. However, there is a dark side to alcohol use that – to this day – has not been addressed properly.
Alcohol in large volumes is one of the largest killers for all demographics. The health risks that that come with a single binge-drinking session can already lead to death. In the long term, alcohol addiction will most likely result in death as well, let alone the guaranteed irreversible damage it will do to your body.
Your body won’t be the only thing that will deteriorate in the long term. Psychologically, alcohol abuse will take its toll, and your mental health and personal life will take a turn for the worse. Alcohol and depression are linked together, and many families , relationships and friendships have been broken though alcohol addiction.
The problem with alcohol addiction however, is the fact that it’s not voluntary. For many people, it’s simply just not that easy to quit. Addiction is an illness, and it will be very hard to stop on your own. Do you feel like your regular drinking has become an uncontrollable addiction? Do you live in Bristol?

How Do I Know If I’m Suffering From Alcoholism
Alcoholism is considered to be a physical and mental health issue by medical professional standards. An addiction to alcohol occurs when an individual becomes physically dependent on alcohol. When the individual ceases to drink alcohol for several hours, physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms will begin to appear.
Alcoholism is often determined by a questionnaire, as the only person who can really measure up the alcohol intake, is the drinker himself. The most known questionnaire would be the CAGE questionnaire. A good test for you to determine whether you might have a problem with alcohol dependence.
The questionnaire asks the following questions:
- Have you ever felt you needed to Cut down on your drinking?
- Have people Annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
- Have you ever felt Guilty about drinking?
- Have you ever felt you needed a drink first thing in the morning (Eye-opener) to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover?
If you have answered yes to two of these, you might be suffering from alcoholism yourself.
