Alcohol & Drug Detox

Alcohol & Drug Detox

Alcohol & Drug addiction involves multiple components with both physical and psychological aspects. Simply put, when someone is addicted to any kind of substance it is not a cut and dried issue that can be solved with a ‘magic pill’ or a bit of hypnosis. Addiction is a very serious medical condition requiring very specific treatment. In most cases involving chronic addicts, alcohol & drug detox is the first step in overcoming addictive behaviour. The word detox is just a shortened version of ‘detoxification’, a word defined by the Oxford dictionaries as follows: “Medical treatment of an alcoholic or drug addict involving abstention from drink or drugs until the bloodstream is free of toxins.” In layman’s terms, detox is a scenario in which the addict refrains from drinking or taking drugs in order to allow his or her body to completely cleanse itself. Detox can be administered on either an inpatient or outpatient basis or, when circumstances warrant, at home. Medicated Alcohol & Drug Detox Most drug and alcohol detox...

Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol Addiction

How old were you when you had your first taste of alcohol? For many of us, it was somewhere in our teenage years. In the years that followed, we were able to control our alcohol consumption so it did not get out of hand. However, not everyone can do that. Some eventually progress to alcohol abuse and eventual addiction. If you are struggling with alcohol to any extent, we urge you to get in touch with us. Unchecked alcohol abuse often leads to alcohol addiction (alcoholism), a condition that destroys both the alcoholic and everyone around him or her. We can help you right now if you are in the midst of an alcohol abuse problem. When you call our addiction helpline, one of our caring and trained counsellors will help determine the extent of your problem. Then we will advise you as to the best place to seek treatment in Essex or England as a whole. Three Different Problems of Alcohol Addiction It is important to note that alcohol...

Prescription Drugs

Prescription Drugs

The dark world of drug abuse and addiction is commonly thought of in terms of things like heroin and cocaine. And while the ‘big name’ illegal drugs are a large part of the problem, they are not the only problem. All over the UK, there are untold numbers of people addicted to common prescription drugs like morphine and codeine. What starts out as a legitimate medical use for prescription drugs can easily become an addiction without warning. It is critical for anyone using a potentially addictive prescription to follow the doctor’s instructions explicitly throughout the entire regiment. Once treatment is complete, any excess medication should be disposed of properly. Have you been taking prescription medication for a significant length of time? If so, are any of your prescriptions labelled as potentially addictive? Please take the time to seriously consider your circumstances if there is even the slightest chance you may be addicted to a prescription drug. Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs Prescription drug experts classify the most commonly abused prescription...
