Physical Consequences of At-Home Addiction Recovery Attempts

Detoxing improperly may drive you back to substance abuse and could be fatal. Medical professionals at detox facilities, hospitals and rehab centers are experienced and knowledgeable. These professionals want to use their expertise to ease your withdrawal symptoms and make the transition into a sober life in Albuquerque as easy as possible.

Mental Consequences of At-Home Addiction Recovery Attempts

All too often addicts attempt recovery alone and unknowingly worsen their situation. Those with mental health concerns such as depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety are referred to as having a Dual Diagnosis. They suffer with addiction, but they are also under the influence of a mental health issue that is out of their control. The mental health issue may have begun the addict’s habit of self-medicating with drugs or alcohol, or the drug abuse itself may have caused the mental health issue. These two conditions perpetuate each other if not properly treated simultaneously by health care professionals. Albuquerque residents can avoid relapse by treating all physical and mental issues through rehab.

Emotional and Social Consequences of At-Home Addiction Recovery Attempts

The consequences of attempting recovery alone can be devastating. The emotional impact of ending drug use and facing reality is a heavy burden. If you become frustrated and physically drained through recovery efforts, the emotional and social aspects of your life in Albuquerque will suffer too. Broken relationships or stress resulting from addiction can worsen your emotional and mental state and simultaneously worsen your addiction. Private therapies can help you work out stress and properly address it. Family or marriage counseling can help you begin repairing broken relationships. Getting the right help now can prevent the harsh words, physical harm and hurt feelings that will come from a solo attempt at recovery.
