What causes someone to become addicted to alcohol or drugs?
Understanding the underlying reasons behind your addiction to alcohol or drugs can significantly help you in your recovery. This is one of the aspects which we’ll look at during your psychological therapies.
Of course, everyone has their own unique reasons behind how or why they became addicted to drugs and alcohol, but we can look at some common factors which may influence substance abuse.
When someone is suffering from mental health issues, they’re almost 50% more susceptible to drug and alcohol abuse as it’s used as a coping mechanism. The effects of the substance will make any mental health issues much worse.
Alcohol acts as a depressant whilst drugs can severely alter the make-up of your brain, making it very difficult to think logically.
Quite often, what starts as recreational drug use or social drinking, can quickly turn into a dependency on the substance, resulting in an unavoidable addiction for which you’ll need a professional drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
Environmental pressures or general stresses of life can also greatly influence excessive consumption of drugs or alcohol.
Another common underlying reason of drug and alcohol abuse could be a trauma or grief experienced during childhood which has followed you through to adulthood.
If you were exposed to excessive substance abuse whilst growing up, you’re more likely to begin using yourself. It’s also possible that there’s a genetic influence, resulting in you being more genetically inclined to developing a drug or alcohol addiction.
Whatever the cause, here at Cassiobury Court we can support your journey to long-term recovery.

Do we offer drug and alcohol detoxification?
Many people seem to believe that they can undergo a drug and alcohol detoxification at home without the support of a professional team. These home detox’s tend to be ineffective and very dangerous as you’re likely to experience withdrawal symptoms leaving you at high risk.
It’s important to have the constant supervision of recovery workers to ensure you’re safe throughout the detoxification process, otherwise you could suffer damage from severe withdrawal symptoms including seizures, insomnia, and even delirium tremens (DT’s).
Even the more common withdrawal symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, and headaches, can be intensified when going through a drug and alcohol detoxification. It’s much safer and much more effective to complete this process under the supervision of our dedicated recovery team.
Do we provide drug and alcohol aftercare support?
Our comprehensive treatment programmes typically last around 28 days, this can however, be shorter or longer depending on the nature of your addiction. Upon completion of your residential addiction treatment, you’ll be given a free 12-month aftercare programme to follow whilst you’re back at home.
We have an aftercare team who are committed to maintaining your motivation to recover and to deliver ongoing drug and alcohol relapse prevention sessions as required.
This is also an important time to extend our support to your family and friends as they watch over your ongoing recovery at home. We can provide them with the necessary tools to recognise your triggers and avoid any potential relapses.
