Alcohol and drug abuse is happening in all areas of the UK, and it is going on right now. No matter where you live, this is an issue for many people. In areas such as the New Forest, individuals are struggling to cope with their need for substances such as drugs or alcohol. Many cannot control their urge to use these substances, even when doing so will cause harm to themselves and their families. Those who have lost control of their ability to stop taking chemical substances will be in need of drug or alcohol rehab in New Forest or whatever part of the country they happen to live in.
It is common for many individuals to assume that alcohol is a harmless substance because of the fact that it is so widely available and legal. They wrongly believe that the most harmful substances are illegal drugs such as cocaine and heroin, and while these drugs do cause a lot of harm to many people, alcohol is just as dangerous, if not more so, when abused. Across the UK, substance abuse is a problem; when it comes to alcohol abuse, though, many do not even realise they are doing it. The same can be said of prescription drugs. The reality is that many individuals abusing alcohol and prescription medication will one day find themselves in need of alcohol or drug rehab in New Forest and beyond.
The first step on the road to recovery is accepting a diagnosis of ‘addict’, and this is something that many find difficult. Prolonged abuse of alcohol or prescription medication can lead to an increased tolerance and subsequent dependence, but most people do not understand what constitutes an abuse of these substances.
With alcohol, drinking more than fourteen units per week is classed as abuse. Those who take prescription medication that was prescribed for another person are guilty of prescription drug abuse, even if the two individuals believe they have the same condition. It is also prescription drug abuse to take more of the drug than advised to by your doctor, even if you feel that your pills are not providing the same relief as before. You should never increase your dosage or the frequency that you take your medication without authorisation from your doctor. Doing so could increase your risk of addiction and the need for drug rehab in New Forest.
If you are worried about your drinking or the fact that you cannot function without your medication, you may be in need of drug or alcohol rehab in New Forest. The good news is that overcoming addiction is possible with the right help and support, and there are plenty of options regarding rehab in your area.

We will provide you with several options and will answer any queries you have so that you will be able to make an informed decision regarding your treatment.
For most people, a programme of detoxification will be required to break the physical bond between the user and the substance. Detoxing from alcohol or drugs can be a complicated process. Most people will experience a range of withdrawal symptoms that can include:
These symptoms will range in intensity from mild to severe, and while for most patients withdrawal symptoms are no worse than flu-symptoms, for some they can be extremely unpleasant and even life-threatening.
A supervised detox is always our recommendation because it means that should any serious symptoms occur a medical professional will be on hand to react. It is impossible to predict who will experience the most severe symptoms until the detox begins, and a supervised detox is considered to be the safest and most comfortable way to break the physical cycle of addiction.
There are various types of rehab centres available in New Forest, including inpatient alcohol rehab, luxury alcohol rehab, and private drug rehabs.
Once your detox has finished, you will be ready to begin your treatment. It is quite common for patients to assume that they do not need rehab when their detox has been completed. They may believe that they will be perfectly capable of staying sober now that they have been free of drugs or alcohol for almost two weeks. It may be the longest they have managed to stay sober for a long time, and they will be convinced that they can easily stay that way.
Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. Intense cravings for chemical substances can come and go for many months, and without treatment to address the psychological issues associated with addiction, it can be difficult to know how to resist.
Rehabilitation is necessary for those who want any chance of a successful long-term recovery. It is the process that addresses the emotional issues and helps the patient to identify the cause of the addictive behaviour. Those who detox without following on with a programme of rehabilitation will be much more likely to relapse at a later date.
