    Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Hyde

    There is no key moment that someone shifts from not needing treatment at rehab to needing it.

    This is because people go to drug and alcohol rehab in Hyde for a wide range of addiction levels, from very mild to severe.

    We would never discourage one of our clients from going to drug and alcohol rehab in Hyde because their problem is not yet bad enough.

    However, there are certain levels of addiction that must be treated urgently, and this means no other treatment option is appropriate for the patient except for residential rehab.

    This usually applies to people with severe substance use issues, but it can also apply to people with moderate problems.

    Another situation in which a substance use problem should be treated with nothing other than rehab is when the patient is experiencing psychological symptoms of addiction, as well as or instead of physical.

    In this case, they would not need a home detox if they were not experiencing physical symptoms, as the purpose of the detox is to remove the physical dependency.

    However, even if they were experiencing physical symptoms, they would need to treat the psychological side at the same time. The only way to do this is to attend rehab for detoxing and therapy.

    It is the patient’s decision, as well as the private rehab’s, whether they would rather be an outpatient or an inpatient at rehab in Hyde. However, when we refer to rehab, we are usually referring to inpatient treatment, as this is the most successful of the two.

    How Addiction Can Damage Your Relationships


    Most people know that addiction can tear families apart, but how does it do this? One reason addiction damages relationships is that it thrives on secrecy, and secrecy can lead to a lack of trust in relationships.

    If someone is concealing their substance use, they are usually doing this for very personal reasons, i.e., they are ashamed of their problem, or they do not want to hurt their loved ones.

    However, their family may interpret this secrecy as a lack of intimacy, and they may end up not trusting their loved one as they are unsure what their motives are.

    If the family is aware of the addiction, they are likely to feel as though the substance use is being prioritised over them, which can cause them to feel rejected by the drug user.

    As a result, they may distance themselves, cut the family member out of their life, or even become extremely anxious in trying to preserve the relationship.

    Enabling is a common problem with addiction that can damage relationships. It is when someone makes excuses for their loved one’s addiction, due to being in denial or being protective, and this ultimately worsens the substance use issue. (1)

    These issues can all be applied to platonic and romantic relationships alike.

    However, it may be more likely for relationship problems to arise out of addictionbecause it is more common for people to leave their partner when they face a challenge like addiction, rather than for someone to stop seeing their parent or sibling because of this.

    How Addiction Can Damage Your Career

    Some functioning drug users are able to thrive in their careers without anyone knowing that they are struggling with substance use. You may have heard references to ‘functioning alcoholics’ in the workplace. (2)

    However, this is rare, and when it does happen, it is usually people with mild substance use issues. What’s more, they are likely to be experiencing major problems in other areas of their life, such as their family life.

    When you are using drugs on a regular basis, you are likely to lose motivation to do anything else.

    Losing motivation for your job is bound to have a negative impact on your career, as it could lead to problems with being on time, not completing assigned tasks, arguing with colleagues, or avoiding work at all costs and potentially being sacked.

    For people to progress in their careers, they usually need to be taking some time for themselves, otherwise, they will eventually burn out and have to stop being productive for a while.

    However, if someone is addicted to drugs, they are not taking care of their mind or body, and this could cause them to burn out very quickly at work.

    How Addiction Can Threaten Your Safety

    If you are a drug user who is very involved in the social side of taking drugs, you will get to know lots of people who are also dependent on substances. This could potentially threaten your safety.

    Though we dislike the stereotype that drug users are dangerous, you do have to be cautious when certain people will do anything for drugs, even if it means blackmailing you or attacking you.

    You are also threatening your safety in terms of increasing your risk of death. It is no secret that chronic use of drugs and alcohol increases your risk of having a stroke, heart attack, developing diabetes, liver problems, and many other risky conditions.

    Even if you stop taking drugs, you have to deal with the possibility of dangerous withdrawal symptoms that could lead to death if not handled in a secure setting.

    Finally, the long-term use of drugs puts you at significant risk of developing serious mental health issues. Many people become depressed, and this is often linked to suicidal ideation, which of course increases their risk of death.

    Some people experience psychosisor even develop schizophrenia, and this can cause them to behave in dangerous ways that put their lives and the lives of others at risk.

    How Addiction Can Lead You to Crime

    Lots of drug users are involved in the criminal world, as they automatically involve themselves when they start buying illegal substances. This can very quickly lead to drug dealing, often as a way to fund their drug habit, which puts them at risk of being imprisoned.

    Some drug users resort to violent crime to fund their drug addiction, so they may get involved with gangs. Again, this could land them in prison.

    As well as this, it makes them vulnerable as they risk being attacked by another gang member.

    Is Sobriety Always a Good Idea?

    If you are struggling with drug dependency or addiction, it is always a good idea to get sober.

    This is because it will free you of painful symptoms, and it will allow you to prioritise the important things in life, such as your family and your health.

    At the end of the day, if you continue to use drugs heavily and you have no plans to get sober, you are increasing your risk of either experiencing a lower quality of lifeor passing away.

    On the other hand, your health will drastically improve when you get sober and stop relying on substances to function.

    So, overall, sobriety is always an excellent idea. However, getting sober immediately without involving a medical professional is not always a good idea.

    If you have an addiction, you will have withdrawal symptoms when you stop using the drug, and these symptoms need to be carefully monitored by a doctor to ensure they do not harm you.

    Some people believe that sobriety should not always be the goal and that victims of addiction should instead work to reduce their drug and alcohol use and make it as safe as possible. This is known as harm reduction.

    The reason we disagree with this is that statistics show that abstinence is the best method for preventing relapse, and therefore it could be named the safest addiction treatment method.

    What’s more, it is getting harder and harder for people to use drugs safely, as even less addictive drugs are sometimes laced with more addictive drugs, more harmful drugs, or other substances that risk the health of the drug user.

    For this reason, we promote sobriety as the best way to live a healthy life for someone who has addiction issues.

    FAQs About Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Hyde

    Below, we provide some answers to common questions about drug and alcohol rehab in Hyde.

    Will I be able to stay sober for the rest of my life after rehab in Hyde?

    We cannot promise that you will maintain your sober lifestyle when you come out of residential rehab in Hyde.

    This is something that will be influenced by your level of motivation, your attendance at therapy and self-help sessions, the people in your life, and many other factors, including ones you cannot control.

    We would advise you to move away from the dream of never relapsing again, and instead take things day by day. Though we would hope that you would never again be in the depths of addiction, it is overwhelming to dwell on the future, so we believe it is best to make the decision to stay sober every single day.

    The relapse rates after drug and alcohol rehab in Hyde can be discouraging, as they are 40-60%. However, everyone is different, and some people have a much easier time staying sober than others.

    What’s more, if you don’t attend rehab in Hyde, there is a much higher chance that you will relapse.

    How can I encourage a family member who is in denial to go to rehab?

    If your family member is in denial about your addiction, we advise you to keep talking to them about it and explain exactly why you are concerned. Point out how it is affecting different areas of their life, including their relationship with you.

    Try not to take on a critical attitude, as this could make them feel defensive, and potentially push them even further away from inpatient treatment. Make sure you keep reminding them that you know they are struggling, and you know that addiction is a disease.

    You could think about staging an intervention if you believe your loved one needs to make a change quickly. Again, you would approach this in a non-judgmental way, while still making it clear that you do not condone their addiction.

    Can I visit rehab facilities in Hyde before choosing one?

    Many rehab centres in Hyde will allow you to visit to see whether you like their style. This can be very helpful, as every treatment centre has a different atmosphere, and you need to know which one you would fit in with best.

    It is also a great opportunity to meet the staff and find out who would be treating you. The sooner you can get to know them and begin to trust them, the easier it will be to relax around them as you complete treatment.

    Some drug and alcohol clinics in Hyde offer virtual tours, which is a great option if you don’t live in the area but would like to be treated there.

    Though you don’t get a sense of the atmosphere in the same way, you get to see what facilities they have and what your room may look like, which could put you at ease before you sign up.

    Do I need a referral from my GP to go to rehab in Hyde?

    No, you do not need a referral from your GP to go to drug and alcohol rehab in Hyde. You would be paying for private care, so the NHS does not need to be involved in any way.

    This means referrals tend to be very quick, as you do not need a doctor’s visit, and there are no waiting lists. It could be a good idea to inform your GP of your rehab stay so that they are in a better position to care for you.

    For example, if you are treated for illness later down the line, it would be helpful for them to know about your history of addiction, including the detox you will have had at rehab.

    Can you choose a treatment centre for me?

    Yes, we can most certainly choose a treatment centre in Hyde for you. Some of our clients request this as they do not know where to start with research, they have recommendations for Rehab Recovery, or they are too stressed to try to find a good drug and alcohol rehab Hyde themselves.

    We would never refer you to a centre in Hyde without first checking that you were happy. After we have selected a potential clinic, we get in touch with you with the details and ask you to make a decision. Then, we put you in touch with the rehab facility to arrange your stay.

    If you decide you don’t like the rehab after contacting them, we start our search again. However, we do tend to be successful in our search, so it is rare that clients are coming back to us again and again with complaints.

    What if I am the only one with a severe addiction at rehab?

    You will not be the only patient with a severe addiction at drug and alcohol rehab in Hyde.

    It is very common for patients at drug and alcohol rehabin Hyde to have moderate to severe addictions, as they have arrived at rehab after trying lower-intensity treatments that didn’t work, or they have had to jump straight to rehab because lower-intensity treatments were not suitable for them.

    Most rehab facilities are on the large side, so there will be lots of different patients with different addiction stories. This means that you are unlikely to be alone in your addiction, whether that’s in terms of how severe it is, how long it has persisted, or which substance you are addicted to.

    If not, everyone will be able to relate to one another anyway, as you will all have dealt with similar issues as a result of being a victim of addiction.

    For example, you may even relate more to someone with a mild dependency issue who is also a dual diagnosis patient, than someone with a severe addiction who has never experienced mental health problems in their life.
