Signs You Need Addiction Treatment

Alcohol use is a causal factor in over 60 medical conditions, including a range of different cancers, high blood pressure, depression, and cirrhosis of the liver. Alcohol use causes hundreds of thousands of hospital admissions in England every year.

Drug addiction is a chronic and relapsing brain disorder that causes changes in your brain. These changes are typically reversible with the right rehab treatment. It encompasses prescription drug addiction, cocaine addiction, heroin addiction, cannabis addiction, and many more.

If you think that you need addiction treatment, then you probably need it. Likewise, if you feel as though your drug and alcohol consumption is getting out of hand, then you more than likely have an addiction and should seek support.

Addiction can have physical and psychological effects. You will benefit from addiction treatment if you’ve noticed that:

  • Any existing mental health issues are worsening
  • You’re experiencing negative changes in your physical and/ or mental health due to substance abuse


Another sign that you need addiction treatment is if you experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking drugs or stop drinking alcohol.

You will experience withdrawal symptoms if you have developed a physical dependence on a substance – whether it be alcohol, cocaine, heroin, or more.

Some other signs of addiction include:

  • A higher tolerance (e.g. needing a higher dose to feel the same effects)
  • Neglecting responsibilities to take drugs or drink alcohol (e.g. calling in sick to work)
  • Isolating yourself from friends and family
  • Hiding your drug or alcohol use from loved ones
  • Experiencing financial troubles due to your addiction
  • Failing to quit despite the negative effects (e.g. on your relationships, physical and mental health, career, finances etc.)
  • Trying to quit but relapsing
  • Loved ones noticing a change in you
  • Craving drugs and/ or alcohol


If these signs resonate with you, don’t hesitate to contact us to begin your recovery journey.

Forms of Addiction Treatment in Leicester

Knowing what to expect from rehab in Leicester can ease any concerns you may have, or relieve any worries about attending rehab.

The drug and alcohol rehab process can vary from clinic to clinic – and it’s important to note that one size does not fit all when it comes to recovery. What works for somebody else may not work for you, and vice versa.


Residential Rehab in Leicester

Residential rehab, also known as inpatient rehab, is when you stay in a rehab clinic throughout your course of treatment.

This can last anything from just a few days to a few months. Your treatment, meals and accommodation will be provided as part of the overall cost of rehab.

This form of treatment is ideal for those with a more serious addiction, whether it be to drugs or alcohol.

At Help4Addiction, we can source the best Leicester rehab for you to overcome your addiction. Whether you’re looking for luxury rehab or a more affordable option, we can determine the best rehab centre in Leicester for you.

Throughout your course of residential rehab, you’ll receive therapy in both the mornings and the afternoons. You will also be able to enjoy activities and exercise, as well as educational workshops.

Different clinics will offer different facilities – for example, luxury rehab clinics may offer saunas and swimming pools, as well as beautiful views.

One of the key benefits of residential rehabilitation is that it removes you from the environment where you became addicted to drugs or alcohol. This can give you the best chance of recovery.


At-Home Detox

Detoxification is the first stage of drug and alcohol rehab. Whether you’re detoxing from drugs or alcohol, you will have no access to drugs or alcohol during a detox.

This is because an alcohol or drug detox aims at cleansing your body of the substance; ultimately breaking the physical dependence.

During a detox, you may experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. If you have a severe addiction, you may benefit from a medically-assisted detox or medical detox. During a medical detox, you may be given detox medication to ease the unpleasant symptoms.

At-home detox is not suitable for everybody. Fill out our online questionnaire to get started, and to determine whether it’s the right fit for you.

We never recommend that you detox from drugs or alcohol cold turkey. This can be dangerous – we always encourage people planning to detox from drugs or alcohol to seek professional support; whether detoxing from home or as an inpatient.

At Help4Addiction, we can source the best detox plan in Leicester for you. Whatever your circumstances, we can help.


Online Rehab

Therapy is essential during addiction recovery, helping with both addictions and mental health issues.

Not only can therapy help those with dual diagnosis (existing mental health conditions alongside addiction), but psychological treatment can:

  • Improve your confidence
  • Improve your well-being in general
  • Teach you more about your addiction (triggers/ root causes etc)
  • Teach you effective coping techniques
  • Equip you for relapse prevention and management

Many therapies used to treat mental health issues such as depression or anxiety can be utilised to treat addiction. For example, you may find group therapy beneficial, or one-to-one cognitive behavioural therapy/ CBT with mental health specialists.

Online rehab is an attractive option for many. If you complete therapy online, you don’t need to travel. You can receive support with just a couple of clicks.

You will chat with your therapist about your experiences and addiction history, and begin your treatment. Some forms of online rehab include:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy/ CBT
  • Dialectical behavioural therapy/ DBT
  • Group therapy
  • One-to-one counselling


Secondary Treatment Leicester

Most rehab centres offer secondary treatment – extended support on an outpatient basis. Some residential clinics also offer free aftercare/ support following your treatment.

Leaving rehab and returning to your day-to-day life can be difficult – after all, you’re returning to temptation, and it’s easy to slip into old habits.

However, aftercare can help to keep you on track, helping you to avoid relapse and promoting long-term recovery. Aftercare can include addiction support groups such as AA or NA, telephone and online support, and extended counselling.
