What Is An Alcohol Addiction?

An alcohol addiction refers to the psychological need to continuously drink alcohol regardless of any negative consequences that might befall them.

This term is used interchangeably with the phrase “alcohol dependence” although they tend to mean slightly different things – dependence refers to the physical need to keep drinking alcohol as opposed to a psychological issue.

For many years now, the UK population have had a much higher tolerance for regarding people as “alcoholics” than many other places in the world – this means that people tend to ignore the smaller cases of alcoholism until it is too late.

This has led to a staggering statistic of around 602, 391 people in 2021 having become addicted to drinking alcohol which is incredibly concerning, especially with the issues that it presents to a person and their loved ones.

There are plenty of different alcohol rehab and alcohol detox facilities that we can get you in contact with to try to help you get through your addiction, it is important to have unwavering support around you to help.

What Is a Drug Addiction?

Drug addictions come in many different forms and varying severity due to the fact that the term is so broad and covers many different types of drugs.

There are various classes of drugs ranging from Class A to C based upon their addictiveness and dangerousness which is what makes the term so vastly different depending on the type of drug.

Cannabis Addiction Reading

Cannabis is a class B drug and is the most used illicit substance in the UK, with around 31.2% of people in 2021 claiming to have used the drug in the last year.

One of the major concerns that experts today have with the general view on cannabis is that the drug is not at all addictive which is simply not true.

Many studies have found that cannabis may not be very physically addictive but has been found to still be psychologically addictive meaning that people can become addicted to taking the drug out of habit.

This has caused the current problem in the UK with cannabis use becoming more of s regualr occurence than it should be.

Cocaine Addiction Reading

Cocaine is the second most used drug in the UK after cannabis but this substance is much more dangerous as it can cause severe effects on the physical and mental health of the user.

Cocaine is a stimulant drug which has a massive effect on the central nervous system giving the user a false sense of pleasure and euphoria which can lead to terrible side effects when taken in excess.

This can eventually mean that a person stops being able to feel any pleasure or joy during their everyday life, making people feel forced to continue to retake cocaine in order to feel happy.

While during the moment it can feel like there cannot possibly be a way to combat this feeling of being senseless, however, there are plenty of cocaine rehab and detox centres that are here to support you and help get through such a troubling issue.

Amphetamine Addiction Reading

Amphetamines have used in both illicit and prescription forms but should not be taken as any less serious than a drug like cocaine or heroin.

Illicit forms of the drug include speed and meth which are notoriously some of the most dangerous substances that a person can possibly take.

Prescription forms are also very addictive and easy to become dependent on as they are usually used to treat symptoms of ADHD and therefore people who wish to ease these symptoms can very easily become addicted to the substance.

Heroin Addiction Reading

Heroin is opioid drug that is notorious for being such a dangerous drug. It takes its toll upon both the physical and mental health of the user and can be fatal if taken excessively.

All opioids bind to the opiate receptors in the brain leading to your body developing a tolerance to the drug forcing the user to take a higher dose the next time they wish to take it.

This, of course, presents many different issues as it will require more of the dangerous drug to be taken and injected into the bloodstream which, in turn, requires more money to be spent in order to receive a higher dosage.

Prescription Drug Addiction Reading

Contrary to popular belief, prescription drugs can be just as dangerous as their illicit counterparts and should be taken in a controlled and monitored environment.
