It is hard for those who have never been affected by addiction to understand the harm that this illness can cause. Most people assume that those who abuse substances such as alcohol and drugs are only harming themselves, but this is not the case. The family members and friends of addicts are often severely affected too. Across the UK, people’s lives are being destroyed by substance abuse and addiction. It happens in large cities such as Manchester and London and in small seaside towns like Felixstowe. The good news though is that help is available for those affected by addiction by way of both drug and alcohol rehab in Felixstowe.

We work alongside providers of rehab in Felixstowe in both the public and private sectors.

Do You Need Help Accessing Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Felixstowe?
We are already helping many people to access alcohol and drug rehab in Felixstowe, but we know that those who do reach out for help are only a fraction of those who are affected. Failure to get help often stems from feelings of shame or embarrassment about the illness.
It is hard to believe in today’s day and age that addiction is still viewed in such a negative light. This is largely down to how it has been portrayed in the media for decades. Many still do not realise that addiction is a recognised brain illness and that those affected are not to blame for their illness.
It is easy to say that an addict should not have started drinking or taking drugs in the first place but there are many people who use these substances without ever having a problem. Just because a person made the choice to drink alcohol or take drugs initially does not make him or her to blame for being affected by addiction.
If you are struggling to cope because of your need for alcohol or drugs, we urge you to reach out now for help. Please do not allow negative opinions of others to stand in the way of you getting the help you need to recover. The longer you delay, the worse your situation is likely to become.
You can talk to us now to learn more about addiction and the recovery process. You do not have to worry that anyone will find out about our chat because everything we do is dealt with in strict confidence. We will never share your information with a third party without your permission and no one will know you have spoken to us unless you decide to tell them.
Could You Benefit from Rehab?
If your life and the lives of those closest to you are being affected by your substance use, it may be worth considering drug or alcohol rehab in Felixstowe. If you are not sure whether you need professional help, it might be worth giving us a call and speaking to one of our advisors.
We can assess your situation to determine how severe your problem is whether you have a need for rehab. We will ask about your substance use, both now and in the past. This will give us a clearer understanding of what you are dealing with and if you could benefit from help.
It is worth thinking about your own drinking or drug taking habits as well as this will give you an indication of whether you could benefit from treatment. If you have been taking illegal drugs more often than you used to or if you are drinking more alcohol than before, it could be an indication that you have built up a tolerance to these substances.
If you suffer with withdrawal symptoms such as shaking, nausea, headaches, and mood swings when the effects of these substances wear off, you might have a physical dependence. If so, you will probably need to address your situation sooner rather than later.
You should know that addiction tends to get worse instead of better. No matter how much you might want it to go away on its own, this is highly unlikely to happen unless you seek help. Call us now and we can assess your situation and either confirm your fears or put your mind at ease.
