How a drug and alcohol addiction can develop

If you are currently consuming drugs or alcohol yet believe that an addiction is yet to make an appearance, it is important that you understand the dangers of addiction, and how one can develop rapidly.

We Treat

  • Alcohol Addictions
  • Cocaine Addiction
  • Heroin Addiction
  • Prescription Drug Addictions
  • Sleeping Pill Addictions

A drug and alcohol addiction can affect anyone. Likewise, addictive behaviours can be brought on by a wide range of triggers and influences, sometimes proving difficult to control.

For many, consumption will begin innocently, to relax or de-stress from a working week. Further common reasons include the influence of environments, peers, previous stressful situations, or even existing mental health issues.

Now of course, the stem of an addiction varies from person to person, however one common probability is present; if help is avoided, drug and alcohol abuse can lead to a dangerous addiction, quickly.

This is where great concern is present, as the probability of life-threatening physical and psychological damages increase; sometimes difficult to fully revert.

Therefore, if you are consuming heavy doses of drugs and alcohol, please bear in mind the possibility of addiction, and how a negative reality could be on the horizon for you.

If you’ve already been diagnosed with an addiction, avoid any further potential damages by attending a drug and alcohol rehab in Portsmouth or the local area.


Rehab facilities local to Portsmouth

If you’re in a place where specialised support and treatment is required, there are a number of rehab options available for Portsmouth locals.

The first option, carrying most convenience will be to source free NHS addiction treatments. Although this may be the easier option, little success can be expected, as services become consistently unattainable.

Demand for NHS alcohol and drug treatments can be pursued but can also be a challenging course of action.

Outpatient Treatment

The second option for those suffering with an addiction will include outpatient treatment. This treatment option will however only be recommended for those suffering with mild substance misuse and can be completed at a Portsmouth based rehab centre.

One issue with outpatient treatment is that people often find it challenging to remain in the same local environment and break the spiral of addiction.

Stay in Rehab

Finally, the most effective and sought-after addiction service here at Cassiobury Court, our residential rehab programmes. For those experiencing any form of negativity from their drug and alcohol consumption, visiting a drug and alcohol rehab away from Portsmouth will be recommended.

Although this may seem like a big step, to promote long-term recovery potential, some time away from home will provide you with the focus to work through your treatment options effectively.

Additionally, you will receive consistent, highly valuable care and guidance throughout your rehab journey, along with experiencing in demand addiction treatments.

All in all, addiction recovery is highly likely by investing in yourself, allowing for a time of transformation to adapt your reality.

Most importantly, selecting support through one of the above rehab options should be prioritised. Attempting to complete this step at home will be intolerable, influencing chronic withdrawal symptoms and health concerns.

To discuss the most appropriate treatment programme for your personal needs, reach out to our team here at Cassiobury Court.

For all of our clients, although difficult at first, rehab has been the most positive step in their current life, helping to fully diminish their drug and alcohol addiction. Experience this result for yourself with our support.


Cocaine Rehab

Cocaine addiction is a serious and challenging issue that can easily be formulated from recreational cocaine use that may have once seemed under control.

It can have devastating effects on one’s health, relationships, and overall well-being. For individuals seeking to break free from the grip of cocaine addiction, rehab offers hope.

For cocaine rehab treatment, the key is behavioural therapy, such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and contingency management, which is a cornerstone of cocaine rehab.

These therapies help individuals recognise triggers, develop coping strategies, and build resilience against cravings. Cocaine addiction is something we see often and is treated commonly, so waste no more time in getting the help you need.


Cannabis Rehab

Cannabis, despite its reputation and increasing legality, can still lead to addiction and adverse consequences for some individuals.

If you or a loved one is struggling with cannabis addiction, rehab can provide the necessary tools for a full recovery.

While cannabis withdrawal has the potential to be milder than with some other substances, detox may still be necessary for heavy users, and its intensity shouldn’t be overlooked.

Rehab for cannabis addiction often includes the aforementioned detox, individual and group therapy sessions and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) are common approaches to address the psychological aspects of cannabis addiction.

Building a network of support is essential for long-term recovery. Support groups in and outside rehab and our aftercare programme provide ongoing encouragement for a stable future.


Prescription Drug Rehab

Prescription drug addiction is a growing concern, as sometimes, prescription drugs are a vital medication as treatment for other ailments. That being said, it can be easy for things to get out of control, even by mistake.

It can be challenging to break free from the grip of painkillers, sedatives, or stimulants, but rehab offers a structured path to recovery.

Rehab starts with a thorough assessment to determine the type and extent of prescription drug abuse. A medically supervised detox helps individuals safely withdraw from the drugs if necessary.

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and contingency management are commonly used to help treat the psychological side of prescription drug addiction, while individual counselling provides one-on-one support.

Group therapy also allows patients to share their experiences and receive feedback from their peers going through the same addictions.

Successful rehab includes a robust aftercare plan that may involve continued therapy, support groups, and regular check-ins to maintain long-term recovery.


Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol addiction is a widespread issue affecting millions of individuals, in fact, it’s been reported that “Over 100 arrests have been made by Hampshire and Thames Valley police forces during a national drink driving crack down” suggesting drinking problems across Portsmouth. 

The journey begins with a thorough assessment to determine the severity of the addiction and any associated medical or mental health issues.

For individuals with severe alcohol addiction, detoxification is often necessary. Medical supervision ensures safe withdrawal and management of withdrawal symptoms, which may require prescription medication for better management.

Alongside medical assistance, behavioural therapies, such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Twelve-Step Facilitation, are commonly used to address the psychological and emotional aspects of addiction.

Alcohol rehab makes for the most effective way to beat addiction before it spirals further out of control and into dangerous territory.
