Types of Addictions & Treatments

Most people assume that chronic addiction is only a result of the abuse of substances like drugs and alcohol. Addictions present themselves in various forms. Particular treatments, specific to the type of addiction, are recommended as studies show that these specialized treatments are far more effective than general recovery principles. In order to facilitate efficient and absolute recovery from individual addictions, We Do Recover offers a wide range of treatment options. We Do Recover treats drug and alcohol addictions, sex addictions, gambling, internet, pornography and work and shopping addictions, among others. Our facilities also provide relief for various behavioural irregularities and expert psychological help can be suggested and arranged within our network of specialist clinics.

Noticing the Signs of Addiction

Determining whether your loved one has developed an addiction problem can be tricky to ascertain. However, the signs of a serious addiction become quite apparent over time and once the problem becomes clear, We Do Recover is available to step in and help. Specific addictions have particular signs and symptoms but the general signs of addiction include the following:

  • Increased desire for, and dependence upon, the substance or activity.
  • Difficulty continuing with normal life; when the substance or activity is not involved.
  • Drastic mood alterations based on the availability of the substance or engagement with the activity.
  • Negative effects on one’s life caused by the excessive engagement with the activity or overuse of the substance.

We Do Recover understands the necessity of devising a completely unique recovery plan for each individual and their respective addiction problem. We will also recommend and aid you or your loved one in the selection of the right treatment centre for the most rapid rehabilitation. We help treat any type of addiction that you might be struggling with and have a proven track record in absolute recovery from the most serious of dependences.

Alcohol Abuse & Addiction

Severe alcohol addiction and cravings can drive an alcoholic to violent measures and criminal and fraudulent activities; in order to get their hands on another bottle. Insatiable cravings cause alcoholics to lose control of their morals, inhibitions and overall reasoning. Many alcoholics, who have good intentions to cut back or to stop drinking altogether, cannot achieve their goals on their own as their unhealthy relationship with alcohol prevents them from taking control of their actions and their lives. When it comes to conquering alcoholism for good, treatment by an equipped and experienced rehabilitation facility is of the utmost importance. We Do Recover is connected to a large base of highly regarded alcohol addiction treatment facilities and will help alcoholics, in search of help, to get sober and to remain so.

Behavioural Disorders

An addiction to a particular activity or behaviour, and not a substance, constitutes a behavioural disorder. These disorders are just as dangerous and life-threatening as alcohol and drug addictions and are not to be disregarded or taken lightly. Problems with eating develop into some of the most life threatening illnesses in the modern world and treatment should be immediate and progressive. We Do Recover specialises in the treatment of the following behavioural disorders:

  • Anorexia
  • Binge Eating Disorder
  • Video Game Addiction
  • Gambling Addiction
  • Porn Addiction
  • Sex Addiction
  • Exercise Addiction
  • Internet Addiction
  • Bulimia
  • Love Addiction
  • Shopping Addiction

The extent of the particular disorder is determined by the individual case and We Do Recover specialises in the unique treatment of the above afflictions. Therapy is highly necessary, within the treatment programmes of these disorders, to determine the emotional and situational triggers that have sparked the addiction in the first place. Group talk, cognitive and behavioural therapy as well as mild exercise and meditation are all aspects of a positive holistic approach to recovery. Continued, extensive care after initial treatment is vital when it comes to behavioural disorders and  a solid support base as well as regular therapy and check-ups, are also recommended. We Do Recover can provide this support for individuals recovering from life-threatening disorders.

Drug Abuse & Addiction

Drug abuse and addiction is now recognised as an international epidemic. Abuse and addiction is not only limited to illicit drugs but extends to prescription drugs as well. The avenues for procuring illicit drugs these days are multiple, despite restrictions, bans and severe penalties, and the use of these substances should be short-circuited with immediate effect, before serious addiction has a chance to take hold. Addiction to Illicit Drugs We Do Recover is here to help you or your loved recover from a serious addiction to illicit drugs and, like alcohol addiction, can suggest the right treatment facility for your individual dependence. Below is a list of the most common illicit drugs that facilitate addiction problems:

  • DMT
  • Marijuana
  • Opioid
  • Heroin
  • Herbal Ecstasy
  • GHB
  • MDMA
  • Ecstasy
  • Opiate
  • Speed
  • Cocaine
  • Khat
  • Mescaline
  • Crack Cocaine
  • Hash
  • Opium
  • PCP
  • Bath salts
  • Mushrooms
  • Crystal Meth

All of these drugs are known to cause severe health problems and extreme life alterations. Signs of addiction, behaviour and corresponding treatment vary greatly from drug to drug and We Do Recover can assist with particular procedure for each and every one. Addiction to Prescription Drugs The misconception that the use of prescription drugs is completely safe is a modern fallacy. Although doctors prescribe these drugs over the counter, the opportunities for addicts to abuse them are abundant. Prescription drug abuse occurs when anyone takes a scheduled drug in any capacity over and above the dosage prescribed by a doctor. Whether to achieve a high or to increase a tolerance to a particular drug, prescription drug abuse is rife in the US and around the world. Many users crush and snort their prescriptions in order to speed up the desirable chemical effects on the body. The danger presents itself when an addict, in an effort to stop the addiction, negates the prescription drug altogether. Rebound effects and chemical withdrawals often exacerbate the problem and expert medical help should be sought before one takes matters into one’s own hands to resolve an addiction. Just like illicit drugs, it is extremely dangerous to attempt detoxification from prescription drugs without professional aid. In a rehabilitation facility for prescription drug addictions, medical staff will monitor a patient 24/7 and a thorough recovery program, which includes therapy and positive life changes, must follow suit. The following prescription drugs are the most addictive by  international standards:

  • Codeine
  • Xanax
  • Valium
  • LSD
  • Adderall
  • Vicodin
  • Ritalin
  • Oxycodone
  • Methamphetamine
  • Methadone
  • OxyContin

If you or a loved one is suffering from an addiction to any of the above, or other, prescription drugs contact We Do Recover immediately and allow us to facilitate the most effective and safe recovery available.
