Addiction Problem in Bridgwater
The addiction crisis plaguing the UK is felt in the historic market town of Bridgwater in Somerset.
Local public health officials have noted the increase of young people using drugs especially crack cocaine, opiates like heroin, amphetamines, ecstasy, or cannabis.
These drugs are sold online in pocket money prices, which make them affordable and easily accessible to the youth.
It would be a distressing experience if to tell your loved ones that you are struggling with addiction.
Battling addiction is not going to be easy-going.
It will cause a strain on your whole family.
Some will support you and some will condemn you.
Do not despair because there is still a better life and a better world that lies ahead.
Abbeycare is here for you to make things happen.
We have the comprehensive rehabilitation treatment programme available near you that can help.
Addiction Treatment Admission Criteria
Before entering any professional rehab programme, you need to undergo an assessment before you get admitted.
Rehab centres cannot force you to undergo rehab even if the whole family wants you to enter rehab ASAP.
Here are the basic criteria for admission into an addiction treatment programme:
You must voluntarily enter rehab and be willing to participate in the treatment process.
You must at least be 18 years old.
You must not have any health ailments such as chronic liver problems, kidney damage, AIDs, etc. that need priority treatment in a medical facility, to ensure your capability to participate in rehab treatment.
You must not be suicidal or homicidal.
Our trained admission staff will help determine if you are eligible for rehab treatment.

How to deal with questions about going to rehab?
Getting into rehab can be a deeply personal experience.
It is an experience that people will most likely ask about you.
Typical questions include: how did you end up in rehab; when did you start taking drugs; what substances you took; what’s the hardest part; and how long have you been sober, among many others.
How you choose to deal with these questions can depend on factors like, at what stage are you in recovery, your relations to the person asking, your overall experience about rehab, and even your current mood.
There is no single correct way to deal with such questions.
You can be frank and friendly by completely sharing your personal experiences.
You can choose to be discreet or reserved by avoiding answering or by changing the subject.
You can also walk away.
However, if you have reached full recovery and healing in life, it would be worthwhile to responsively share your experience to others especially those in need.
The 12th step in the 12 step programme essentially encourages people to carry the message of hope, recovery, and change to others.
Sharing can productively contribute to your own healing as it reinforces your recovery and substantiates the principles you have learned.
Call Abbeycare now on 01603 513 091 and learn how to pass on the gifts of faith, hope, and love.
Why addiction habits are hard to break
Once addiction sets in, it is almost impossible to walk out of it on your own.
What started as a harmless pastime or a genuine cure for chronic pain has gradually ended up owning and controlling your life.
Addiction to drugs or alcohol is a bad habit to break.
The difficulty stems from the fact that addiction is a brain disease.
Repeated use of drug or alcohol substances alters the reward functions of your brain.
Your brain will associate drugs and alcohol with pleasure and the absence of drugs and alcohol with pain.
This is compounded by unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that you will experience when your body is deprived of drugs or alcohol.
You also lose good judgment becomes it becomes harder to think rationally.
This makes it quicker for you to compulsively yield to drug or alcohol cravings without much ado.
The only thing that matters is your next high, which becomes progressively demanding.
The only way for you to break an addiction is by getting professional help.
