Drug and alcohol abuse is taking its toll on the lives of many individuals living in Milton Keynes – perhaps you are one of them. If so, we want you to know that you are not on your own. Addiction is a lonely illness and many of those affected feel they have no one to turn to for help, but this is really not the case. The reality is that there is plenty of opportunity for you to turn your life around, provided you can access a programme with the right care and support to get you through. You will be pleased to know that both drug and alcohol rehab in Milton Keynes is readily available.
It is never easy coming to terms with the fact that substance use has spiralled out of control, but this can happen quite easily. Social drinking can quickly become problem drinking without you even realising that you are in trouble. In many instances, those affected by alcohol or drug addiction do not realise they have a problem until someone else mentions it. If you have been told by a loved one that you may need alcohol or drug rehab in Milton Keynes, we are here to help.
Addiction Helper works with addicts and their families throughout the UK. Our years of experience working with people struggling with addiction has taught us that it is usually easier for family members and friends to spot the signs of substance abuse and addiction than it is for the affected individual. Just because you believe you do not have a problem does not necessarily mean you could not benefit from rehab in Milton Keynes.
Do You Need Rehab in Milton Keynes?
If you are worried about your substance use or if someone else has raised concerns, then please give us a call. We can assess your situation to determine if, a) you do have a need for drug or alcohol rehab in Milton Keynes, and b) what type of programme would most suit your needs.
It is understandable that you may be reluctant to accept a diagnosis of ‘addict’ – most people are. This is often due to the fact that negative stereotyping of addiction has led most individuals to assume that it is a bad thing.
Those affected by addiction often feel a sense of shame or embarrassment, although they needn’t. Addiction is an illness in the same way that the flu or diabetes are illnesses. And just like these other illnesses, addiction does not discriminate. It can affect anyone who uses mood-altering substances such as alcohol or drugs, regardless of how old they are, where they come from, and what their gender is.
If you have been drinking more alcohol or taking more drugs than before, you could be in need of alcohol or drug rehab in Milton Keynes. Alternatively, it could be the case that you just need to think about your consumption levels and try to cut back.
However, if you have tried to quit or cut back before and were unable to, it is very likely that you need help. Please call us today and allow us to assess your situation so that you will know for sure.
Is Drug or Alcohol Rehab Necessary to Overcome Addiction?
You may have had a hard time coming to terms with the fact that your substance use is out of your control, and you may be finding it even tougher to accept that you may need to complete a programme of detox and rehabilitation.
Perhaps you believe that you are more than capable of overcoming addiction on your own, without any professional help. While it is certainly possible to quit alcohol and drugs without help, those who do rarely stay sober permanently.
The reason for this is that quitting drugs and alcohol is never enough. As well as breaking the physical bond between yourself and the substance to which you are addicted, you must also learn how to live a substance-free life.
Rehab programmes work on tackling any psychological and emotional issues relating to the illness. During a programme of rehab, you will learn the cause of your addictive behaviour and will be given the skills required to avoid a return to this behaviour in the future.
