When you suffer from an addiction, you don’t think clearly. Worse than affecting your mental clarity, drink and drugs will be slowly eradicating your other capacities and wearing down your well-being. Drink or drug addiction is all-too-common among us humans. There are only two ways that a drink or drug addiction can end – and one of them is with death. Do you intend to continue along this dark path, spending all of your money and never improving your life, until the end? If so, then we can’t help you.
If you feel even the smallest spark, the tiniest desire to get back to a regular drink and/or drug-free life, then we want you to find a working phone and call us. You can get in touch with Help4Addiciton any time of the day or night and we will be here to help you. We don’t care where you are from or what you have done while under the influence. We just want to help you recover from drink or get off drugs.
Not that many years ago, the founder of our organisation relied on drug use. He went through a tough recovery of his own and was eventually able to get some of his life back. Once he was on the straight and narrow path of sobriety, he realised how difficult it had been for him to find the right type of help at the moment he needed it most. Regardless of how many people are around you, a drug addiction or alcoholism is best managed by professionals. Get a good support team and make your wish come true.
Here at Help4Addiction we connect you with the right resources because we know first-hand how tough it is to find the correct clinic. If your clinic is the wrong type for you, there is a chance your recovery could fail. This isn’t what anybody wants for you. Call us now on 0203 955 7700 when you decide to quit your addiction so that we can find you the ideal place to recover. If you don’t want to talk by phone just yet you can use our online recovery consultation service and we will get back to you. The important thing is that you recover. Don’t be put off.
Where Can You Get Counselling for Addictions in Stoke-on-Trent?
There are so many facilities that can support drug or alcohol detox but for counselling you need a therapist. You can get counselling for addictions through either your alcohol or drug rehab program. Rehab clinics regularly employ fully qualified psychiatrists, therapists, and mental health workers (like alcohol counsellors) to keep you mentally fit and safe while you recover.
You will find that there is a close connection between the world of recovery from drugs or alcohol, and the world of therapy. Without proper understanding you might never learn why you turned to substance abuse in Stoke-on-Trent in the first place. Without counselling, you might not tackle those issues and learn healthy coping tactics to use in place of drugs or alcohol in future. Addiction is partially in the mind. If you can account for this, meet it head on, and change things from the source of the problem, you are on a sure path to getting off drink or drugs for good.
To answer the question, however. There are multiple options for rehab and counselling throughout the city of Stoke-in-Trent. A service like ours helps you narrow down those choices and pick which place is likely to work best for you. This way, you have a greater chance at a successful recovery. Sound good? We hope so. Call us now, on 0203 955 7700 for more.
How Do I Stop Using Drink or Drugs?
We can’t tell you a single hard-and-fast rule for this. Addiction has many aspects and all of them need to be worked on simultaneously if you want to successfully recover from addiction. A lot of being addicted to a substance is mental and if the counselling sessions or CBT therapies can’t change this for you, you may end up going back to drink or drugs repetitively over the years.
What we can tell you is that rehab clinics, either as an outpatient or as a full-time resident, will work well to help you stay off drink and drugs. When you are an addict, quitting seems like an unsurmountable task. Rehab clinics will give you the best possible chances to quit addiction for good. So if you want to stop drinking forever, attendance at a rehab clinic will do the trick. It won’t be easy, but we can promise that it will be worth it.
We also have a guide on How to stop drinking so much if you think this would be of help to you.
How Long Does Rehab Take?
The length of time that rehab takes will vary on many circumstances. Rehab is different for those that have been addicted to drugs and for those addicted to alcohol. It also differs according to how long you have suffered from your addiction and according to what drugs it was that you were addicted to.
As a general guide, a full-time rehab course usually lasts around 28 days. It could be more than this, but we certainly wouldn’t recommend that you attend a rehab clinic for any less than this length of time. Once you have dealt with the detox – which can be up to a fortnight long – you have to get your head into a good space so that you won’t just leave and use again.
If you are being seen as an outpatient for rehab in Stoke-on-Trent (as is common with alcohol addictions) you will likely be in the program for a lot longer. The base line is three months in order to cover a wide variety of therapies and establish new routines. Once done, you can go to rehab in aftercare sessions that can last as long as you want them to. For example, you might want to join a support group to make sure you keep on the right path for as many as a few years after you end your addiction.
So rehab differs per individual case. How long it takes for you to recover shouldn’t be compared to other people anyway. Once you are committed to recovery and in an intensive program, that is all that matters in the world.
What’s the Link Between Addiction and Depression?
When you suffer from an addiction, there is a high chance that you will also suffer from some sort of mental health issues, too. Most commonly, Anxiety and Depression are noted as common among those with addictions. The anxiety rends to revolve around the need for drink or drugs, the inability to get them, or the substance running out. The depression is more focused on the black hole of despair around yourself. You think you are worthless because all you do is repeat the cycle of buying, taking, and finding more in your quest for a high or to get drunk. What you cannot see is that it is possible to remove yourself from this cycle. Your brain will convince you otherwise.
The reason addiction and depression are so intertwined has been argued and discussed for a long time now. Scientists know that the chemical reactions in your brain become focused on drug taking or drinking. This means that you have to get your fix before you can truly enjoy anything else in your life. This means that you take more every day and that you go about your life in a state of constant impairment. This impairment makes everything more difficult for you. This difficulty results in depression, anxiety and even worse. You can find out more about the brain and how it interprets addiction, here.
