What Is Addiction?

Once addicts were thought to be innately weak or bad people. As more research is done into addiction people have come to realise that addiction cuts across all types of people, regardless of character, race, age, or social or economic position.

More and more people are realizing that addiction is not a moral issue, or a criminal justice problem. Instead, it is much more useful to consider addiction as an illness.

An Illness

Now we realise that addiction is in part a neurological problem. 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.

You will start to experience the compulsion to continue using, despite the harm it is causing to yourself and to others. This means that you will not be able to choose to stop, which is what people mean when they say you are powerless over addiction.

What can I do?

You may be powerless over your addiction but with help, you can take responsibility for your recovery. Experts agree that the best form of treatment is residential drug and alcohol rehab. The quicker you can address your addiction the more likely complete recovery will be.


Aftercare Options in Warwickshire

When you have completed treatment you will not be left without support. When the time comes for you to leave you will be equipped with a personalised aftercare. Aftercare is considered essential in reducing the risk of relapse. The Warwickshire rehabs offer a range of aftercare programmes which include one-to-one counselling, therapeutic groups, and workshops.

Relapse Prevention

In addition to aftercare support from the team, you will have a thorough relapse prevention plan. This plan that you will have designed with your counsellor, will include steps to take when you find yourself in vulnerable situations.

Your relapse prevention plan may include things like accessing a counsellor in your hometown and attending Warwickshire Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous meetings. Please find a comprehensive list of meetings is available on their UK websites.

It is suggested that you stay in touch with the recovery community where you will benefit from the support of sober friends and peers.

Often the families and friends of addicts also benefit from ongoing support. Rehabs do offer family programmes and there is also support to be found in Alcoholics Anonymous sister fellowship Al-anon. There, family members can learn from the experience of other family members.
