Great Britain is at the grips of an addiction crisis. It has rarely been more obvious that more needs to be done to give those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction a chance to recover from this horrendous disease.
We need to spread awareness about addiction and that begins with education about drug and alcohol abuse. What are the physical, mental and social impacts of drug abuse? Can drug abuse be fatal? And why is private rehab the best solution? Keep reading to find out.
The Impact of Drug Abuse
Drug addiction is a dangerous and all-consuming disease. Often, addicts that arrive at our facilities for drug rehabilitation don’t recognise themselves anymore. The person at the end of a long process of abuse has transformed almost completely, and it’s never for the better.
But the harsh reality is that alcohol and drug addiction hurts so much more than just the user. Let’s look at the impact it has on both the person suffering from the illness and those around the
The Impact on the User
People that are dependent on drugs believe they’re causing harm to nobody but themselves. While this isn’t completely true, they are still putting an incredible burden on both their physical and mental health.
There are significant physical effects as part of drug abuse. Over time users will change in appearance, beginning to look dishevelled and unkempt. Their skin can change colour, they’ll carry numerous new scars and their eyes can become noticeably bloodshot and red.
They’ll begin to lose weight and look physically weak. Internally, things get even worse. Heart problems, liver problems and digestion problems all arise due to alcoholism or drug abuse. The chemical makeup of the brain is changed and there can be real and long-term damage and mental health disorders too. Addicts may attempt to go cold turkey but they can cause their bodies – almost completely dependent on alcohol or drugs serious harm. Seizures and panic attacks are all common.
Prolonged abuse of alcohol and drugs can also have a devastating impact on the mental health of users. Friendly, outgoing and confident people will quickly become disinterested in their hobbies of the past. They’ll spend much more time indoors and slowly lose grip on their social responsibilities.
Instead of going to events and socialising, they’ll spend their time indoors and could develop anxiety and mood swings. Bipolarity and depression are two common mental health conditions which tend to appear as part of a drug abuse problem.
The Impact on Loved Ones
Substance abusers are often unable to see the harm and pain they’re causing to family members and loved ones around them. Partners will plead, desperately, trying to let users know that they have a problem. This can result in violent retaliation and complete denial. Families can be torn apart by the damaging influence that a user can have on everybody in the same household.
Families can also be dependent on the person that is abusing drugs for financial stability. If that person is supporting a young family, there is an even greater pressure to provide. Drug abuse tends to have a telling impact on a person’s ability to perform at work. Sometimes, they aren’t physically able to work and need to find another illicit source of income.
The Social Impact
Addicts are also likely to cause social problems. Every case of substance addiction is different, but there are common patterns and symptoms of drug addiction. Under the influence of drugs, some people are more likely to take part in criminal activity. With lower inhibitions and a desperate need to fund their habit, some users will turn to anti-social behaviour and crime. Council facilities, the NHS and local services all have to work harder to combat this behaviour.

Your unique treatment programme, carefully designed after intense analysis and discussion, will see you take part in workshops, group therapy sessions and exercise routines. You’ll enjoy a balanced and healthy diet, and you’ll be able to spend time with former addicts.

Drug and Alcohol Addiction Detox
The detox phase is a key step in your rehab programme. A drug or alcohol detox will be the first step of any treatment programme, apart from cocaine rehab for cocaine addiction. This is because cocaine does not cause any physical withdrawal symptoms.
The medically assisted detox will last for 5-10 days and you will be supported by medical professionals throughout the process.
Prescription medications may be offered to help you manage withdrawal symptoms during the detox if you need them.
Therapy Treatment at Residential Rehab
You will receive a variety of addiction treatment therapies during your time at inpatient rehab to help you improve your psychological health and mental element of addiction.
Treatments offered include:
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Group therapy
- Art therapy
- Family therapy
- Stress management
- Relapse prevention
- Aftercare services

Outpatient Treatment in Mansfield
Deciding between outpatient and residential treatment is a big decision to make if you are searching for addiction help. Outpatient services such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous hold weekly meetings in Mansfield to help you feel supported.
Outpatient treatment can be great for people struggling with a substance addiction that is less severe and manageable. Although outpatient services are great for some people, addiction treatment is less intensive and isn’t as suitable for people with a long addiction history.
Meetings take place at:
- Double Impact, 18-19 St John St, NG18 1QJ
- Friends Meeting House, 124 Rosemary St, NG18 1RB
- Salvation Army Church, Bowne St, NG17 4BJ
- St Mary’s Church Rooms, Mansfield Rd, NG21 9NJ
To learn more about meeting times of outpatient programmes, see Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and Narcotics Anonymous meetings times on their websites.
