What Is An Alcohol Addiction?

Alcohol addiction is a term used to describe someone’s consistent use of alcohol despite the negative effects it may have upon a person. It is a phrase that is quite commonly used alongside “alcohol dependence”.

Alcohol addiction refers to the psychological addiction to continuously consuming alcohol whereas alcohol dependence typically refers to a physical need to keep drinking alcohol.

Across the UK, much of the general population regularly fails to recognise the symptoms of substance abuse when it comes to alcohol consumption due to the sheer amount that people across the country tend to drink on a regular basis regardless.

This has led to over 600,000 people in 2021 becoming dependent upon drinking alcohol regularly, no matter the consequences they may face.

If you are noticing some behaviours in yourself or a loved one that align with that of alcohol abuse disorder, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will get you in touch with an alcohol rehab centre in Oxford.

What Is a Drug Addiction?

Drug dependency is a term that can be used when referring to any kind of class A, B or C substance abuse issue making it a relatively broad term that is usually necessary to be specified further.

Drugs can be narrowed down to all sorts of different classifications based on how addictive they are and the severity of the drug’s effects on the body. These addictions can be both physical and psychological making some incredibly difficult to identify without prior knowledge.

Cannabis Addiction Oxford

Cannabis is one of the most popular drugs in the UK, largely due to a falsification of the addictiveness of the drug. It has been said for many years that cannabis is not an addictive substance however this is simply not true!

There have been various studies conducted on cannabis abuse in recent years that have shown that, while cannabis may not be physically addictive t the user, it most certainly can be psychologically or habitually addictive.

This means that the abuser will simply continue to take the drug based on their everyday habits, and may wish to continue doing so to not interrupt their routine.

This has led to around 10% of cannabis users becoming addicted to taking cannabis in such a way that it negatively affects their lives, a statistic that must be changed in order to provide a safer environment for the people surrounding them.

Cocaine Addiction Oxford

Cocaine is another of the most popular substances in the UK and it is becoming an increasingly common problem to see people become addicted to this illicit substance.

Cocaine is a class A drug meaning that it is in a category of some of the most dangerous drugs in the world showing the lethality that cocaine can cause to an individual.

As a stimulant drug, cocaine primarily targets the central nervous system causing the user to feel an intense sense of euphoria and joy which lasts for around 15 to 30 minutes with some effects lingering for the next few hours.

If you believe that there is a danger of a loved one becoming addicted to cocaine, our team can help you get in touch with a rehab or detox centre that will be able to support them through recovery.

Amphetamine Addiction Oxford

Amphetamines are another type of stimulant that are used in some of the world’s most dangerous compounds such as meth and speed. Both of these illicit substances are class A drugs meaning they are incredibly addictive alongside their hazardous effects.

Amphetamines are also used frequently in all sorts of prescription medications such as Concerta or Aderall. Both of these drugs are medications for conditions such as ADHD as they look to target the central nervous system to increase the activity in the brain in order to reduce the symptoms of the disorder.

These, however, are still incredibly dangerous as they have a similar composition to their illicit amphetamine counterparts. If you are having trouble with an addiction to any kind of amphetamine, we recommend that you seek help as soon as you can.

Heroin Addiction Oxford

Heroin is a notoriously dangerous and addictive substance having claimed the lives of many popular icons across the world such as Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison.

This has given heroin the title of being a taboo drug for people to take however this has not stopped hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to continue taking the drug to a dangerous level.

Heroin detox can be an incredibly difficult task for many people to undergo however it is one of the most effective ways in which people can get help for their addictions.

This process can be very dangerous if not maintained and monitored correctly as a detox reduces your tolerance to heroin overtime making you much more likely to overdose if you begin taking the drug again.

Prescription Drug Addiction Oxford

As we have briefly mentioned above, prescription drugs have the potential to be just as dangerous and addictive as illicit substances as they are legal to obtain but many still contain some of the same chemicals within their composition.

This means that people taking prescription drugs should stick strictly to the recommendations of their GP in order to reduce the likelihood of becoming addicted to the prescription substance. If you feel that you are in need of a dosage increase, discuss this with your doctor beforehand.
