Are you struggling with substance abuse, or do you know someone in your life who is? Addicts and drug abusers often get lost in their addiction, and sometimes, they forget that recovery is possible. Even if you have been addicted for years or decades, recovery is always possible.
What Is Involved at a Detox Treatment Center?
Self-treatment for addiction seldom works (and it can be dangerous). The most effective way out of addiction is by attending a drug and alcohol detox treatment center.
At a drug and alcohol detox treatment center, you will be guided through detox and assisted with difficult withdrawal symptoms. These withdrawal symptoms will vary based on your addiction. You will also go through addiction rehab counseling and therapy in various forms.
How Do You Know if You Are Truly Addicted?
To get the help you need with withdrawal and recovery, it’s often necessary to be able to see and recognize the signs and symptoms of full-blown addiction in either yourself or a loved one or close friend.
- Hiding alcohol or drugs or using these substances by yourself
- Having drinking or drug use rituals that you follow
- Experiencing extended periods of time where you can’t remember anything that happened (often called blackouts)
- Feeling like you are always either abusing drugs and alcohol, recovering from their use, or looking for these substances
- Not being able to quit when you want to
There are several classic symptoms of addiction that affect the brain and body. If you’re experiencing these, look for an addiction rehab:
- Withdrawal symptoms when you stop using
- Headaches and migraines
- Weight loss
- Loss of self-grooming
- Speech that is slurred
