How Many People Successfully Quit Drinking or Doing Drugs?
So statistically speaking, what are your chances of successfully giving up an addiction? There is a theory that some of us just have an ‘addictive personality’ or that once we have suffered from an addiction, we will always be slaves to it. Both of these theories are encouraged by the mainstream media and are entirely untrue.
It is perfectly plausible that a former addict won’t indulge in the substance they misused out of fear of falling into bad habits. This is perfectly understandable and may be why the media has perceived addiction in a certain way. However, just because you are an ex alcoholic who no longer wants to drink, doesn’t mean that your life is ruled by the need not to drink. In reality, having to tell people that you don’t drink anymore is far easier than film and TV make it look. There is an element of pride in saying no to a drink when you were once an alcoholic. It is understandable and not to be trifled with.
According to some studies, you will always be an addict… but this doesn’t mean you have an addictive personality. In fact, the notion of an addictive personality has been greatly exaggerated. You can be addicted to heroin and never take another drug, just as you could drink coffee every morning and not consider yourself to be an addict. The idea of an addictive personality is a little ludicrous since an addiction takes up 90% of your time. Multiple addictions at once is unmanageable at best.
The experts at Harvard Health even believe that recovering from one addiction puts you in better stead for fighting off others. The message behind this is that recovery from drug addiction and recovery from alcohol addiction take a strength of personality that you will need to dig deep to find… but once you have hold of it, you are almost unstoppable.
If you are ready to take that leap, contact us for the support you will need to get through it. Reach us on 0203 955 7700 to get on your way.
Are There Rehab Centres in Oxfordshire?
You may think that you live in a nice, harmless area of Oxfordshire – and that could be the case. Nevertheless, you will find that there are drug dealers close at hand. Gangs of drug traffickers move Class A drugs such as heroin or cocaine up and down the country, bringing them in from abroad and exporting those made here. With all this movement going on, there is never a drug gang far away in all areas of England. Oxfordshire being a well-off county by comparison to others simply means that the drugs there are more expensive.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab Clinics exist to help you get over your addiction problems. They usually incorporate a mixture of talking therapy, skills, arts, and hobby development programs, psychology and general practitioner advise, all aimed to work as one comprehensive healing unit. There are several types of rehab, the most expensive of which is the private option. Each of the programs will involve your attention for around 28 days – the length of time it takes to dismiss the bad habits you have formed and set you back to a clean life. How long rehab takes depends on you. That initial period gets you clean of drugs or alcohol, but it is up to you thereafter to stay that way.
There are rehab clinics all over the count of Oxfordshire. Some of the different types of rehab you can get include the following:
- Outpatient care – you can get rehab by attending your clinic through the day, working your sessions in around your job. This method lets you carry on with life as normal while simultaneously getting the help you need. Once completed, you will find you have a better chance at staying off drugs, for good.
- Online Therapy – the growth of the digital world and our reliance on technology has given birth to a new type of therapy, the online kind. Through the use of video chat and online platforms such as Skype, you are able to communicate with a fully qualified recovery counsellor, without having to leave your home. There’s nothing to fear when there is no rushing or travelling to the clinic. This option is ideal for the parents and those with full-time jobs.
- Talking therapies and counselling – usually included as part of your rehab options, talking therapies include confidence boosting techniques such as Motivational Interviewing, combined with therapies like CBT which are designed to get to the root of the problem and stop you using again.
- Full-time rehab – a full time residential rehab facility is the type that you move in to. Some people find it suits them better if they are removed from all the triggers in life that make them turn to alcohol or drugs. Full-time rehab removes you from these and allows you to recover over a 28 day period. You may need to transition back into regular life with the aid of another facility.
These are just some of the many ways that you can get help to stay off drink and drugs for good. If you want to learn more, or if you want to have a no-obligation chat about your options, we are ready and waiting to help you kick addiction to the kerb. Call us, on 0203 955 7700 today to get started.
Alcohol and Drug Problems in the Oxfordshire Area
We have been talking a lot about drugs and alcohol, but what specific issues are the two addictions presenting in the county of Oxfordshire. The county council have already issued guidance for those that have developed an addiction. Unfortunately, their guidance generally includes the support of charitable organisations in order to help you recuperate.
As for the area itself, it wasn’t so long ago that a young man was telling his story to the Guardian. This young man was only 16 years old but had endured 13 stab wounds after becoming mixed up with a drug trafficking gang operating throughout Oxfordshire county. Although the police didn’t catch all of those who caused the damage, he is just one example of the million ways drugs do damage, even to those who aren’t addicted to them.
