The Science of Addiction

When you drink alcohol or take drugs the brain releases dopamine. Dopamine is a chemical which stimulates the ‘reward circuits’ of the brain. Because of this process, over time the self-control and decision making neurological processes in the brain become impaired. Once this happens addiction has become a neurological problem.

This means that you will start to experience the compulsion to continue using, despite the harm it is causing to yourself and to others.

Questions about Addiction Asked to Our Lancashire Rehabs:

What is wrong with me?

You are not bad or weak. You have the illness of addiction. Today we understand that the illness of addiction has a large biological component. The illness of addiction is characterized by an inability to choose to stop using.

Having an illness is not a moral failing. You can take responsibility for your illness and learn ways of managing it. We are here to help you develop the understanding and skills that you need to lead a happy, productive drug –free life.

Why do I need to stay in treatment after detox?

Detox is just a first step- to achieve long lasting recovery you must address your thinking and behaviour or you will return to active using. The therapeutic part of the programme will help you to embrace change and build a new life, to be healthy, to develop healthy relationships. You can enjoy your transformational process!

How do I know treatment will work for me?

Our programmes are designed to give you the best chance at finding yourself and living a substance-free life. Each treatment plant is created individually, optimising the healing effect for your own personal needs.

Am I worth it?

Active alcoholism and addiction cause a chronic sense of shame and unworthiness which can lead to depression and hopelessness.  This sense of unworthiness can become a barrier to getting help. In rehab you will have the opportunity to heal from both your shame and your addiction. With honesty, open-mindedness, and willingness, you can do it! In rehab you can:

  • Learn to recognise shame and guilt as they come up
  • Process your feelings in healthy and effective ways
  • love and accept yourself and your feelings
  • Stop isolating and learn to nurture your relationships
  • Create great (and safe) self-care tools

How stressful would a rehab in Lancashire be?

It can be nerve wracking putting down the drugs and alcohol, especially as often our whole identities have become entangled with our illness. Sometimes we do not know who we are sober – what we like, or how to happy without the use of drugs. Don’t worry, in recovery you will find plenty to be happy about. We nurture positive feelings in rehab by:

  • Connecting with others – you will invest in each other’s recovery and experience the joy of helping others and of being helped. You will realise that your experiences and insights benefit others.
  • Focusing on gratitude – understandably, addiction is often accompanied by depression and negativity. In rehab we will break this pattern of negativity through focusing on things we are grateful for.
  • Exercise – through exercise you will start to experience natural endorphins that give a great surge of positivity and start to create a healthy body and a healthy mind.

What about my family?

We offer family therapy where appropriate and are always here at the end of the phone if family members want to call in. Family members and friends will be able to visit after the initial detox is over.

We know that addiction is a family disease and suggest that the family members attend Al-Anon groups in the Lancashire area. There you will be able to hear the experience, strength and hope from other family members of addicts/alcoholics.

Will I be able to stay clean and sober when I leave?

You will have a thorough relapse prevention plan which will include steps to take when you find yourself in triggering situations.

You will be able to attend after care groups at the rehab to support you through those first months. We are committed to supporting you in the long term.

How can I pay for my treatment?

Those who are able to privately fund their rehab program will find little or even no waiting list prior to assessment and admission. You may be eligible for NHS funding. To find out about an NHS funded place in rehab please visit your GP who can then refer you to local drug and alcohol services.
