Drug & Alcohol Rehab East Sussex
In East Sussex, many lives are affected by excessive alcohol consumption. While most UK adults drink alcohol in moderation, there are some who regularly drink more than the fourteen units the government recommends each week via its guidelines. Excessive consumption of this legal but highly addictive substance can lead to a host of problems, not only for the individual but also for their loved ones, entire communities, and the economy as well. Drinking more than the recommended guideline amounts increases the risk of a number of mental and physical health problems including liver disease, stroke, heart disease, dementia, and some forms of cancer. It is important, therefore, that alcohol rehab in East Sussex is readily available for those who need it. That is where we come in.
We are a free referral service working throughout the UK to help people access both alcohol and drug rehab in East Sussex. As a referral service, we do not provide treatments for those struggling with addiction, but we do provide help and assistance when it comes to finding the most suitable provider for your needs.
You may wonder why you would need such a service when you could search for rehab providers yourself? The truth is that you can, by all means, look for a suitable rehab provider, but most of the people who get in touch with us do so after spending hours of their valuable time trying to find a treatment provider without really knowing what they should be looking for. The benefits of allowing Addiction Helper to assist in this area is that we have experience and knowledge of the addiction services industry, and we do not charge for our service.

Detox Before Rehab in East Sussex
For most people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, a detox will be necessary before they can begin the process of rehabilitation. The reason for this is that quitting these chemical substances can be very complicated and the individual is likely to feel quite unwell for a period of around seven to ten days. It is wise to complete this process before considering moving on to rehab.
If you have a physical dependence on a mood-altering substance such as alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription medication, you will more than likely experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking this substance. These withdrawal symptoms typically include mood swings, headaches, nausea, shaking and sweating, and you may have already noticed mild symptoms before whenever you were in need of alcohol or drugs. You probably found that these symptoms subsided as soon as you satisfied your craving.
When drugs or alcohol are cut off completely, the body will naturally start the healing process, and these symptoms may be exacerbated. Most people will only ever suffer from mild to moderate symptoms that are similar to those experienced during a bout of the flu, but others may be affected by more severe symptoms, some of which could actually be life-threatening if left untreated.
As there is no way of knowing who is going to experience the most severe symptoms, we believe that caution is the best approach in terms of drug or alcohol detox, and we advise all clients to enter a dedicated detox facility if possible. Here, you will receive around-the-clock care and support, and medical professionals will be ready to react in the case of an emergency.
