Why is amphetamine rehab important?

Amphetamine rehab is an essential tool for those who are struggling to stop taking amphetamines. Without amphetamine rehab, you are left exposed to the damaging effects of the drug, all of which can have a profound and lasting impact on your well-being.

Some of the benefits of amphetamine rehab include:

  • Gained self-control: amphetamine rehab provides a safe and controlled environment for individuals to quit amphetamines, helping them regain self-control and independence from their dependency.
  • Improved mental health: amphetamine abuse can take a toll on your mental health, causing anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. Amphetamine rehab provides access to therapy and counselling services to address these issues, improve mental health and help you to develop healthy coping mechanisms.
  • Better relationships: amphetamine use can put a strain on relationships with loved ones, causing conflict and isolation. Amphetamine rehab provides you with guidance on how to repair and strengthen these relationships.
  • Increased self-awareness: amphetamine rehab offers the opportunity for you to gain self-awareness, understand the root causes of your drug use, and develop a deeper understanding of yourself.
  • A sense of community: during amphetamine rehab, you will connect with others who are going through similar struggles, providing a sense of community and support that can be essential to recovery.

Most importantly, drug rehab can help you to achieve a healthier, happier life and a brighter future. You will be able to enjoy activities and hobbies, spend time with loved ones, go on trips and start a new career – after amphetamine rehab, the opportunities are endless.

How do I know if I need amphetamine rehab?

If you have found yourself unable to stop taking amphetamines, it may be time to consider amphetamine rehab. There are several signs that indicate a need for amphetamine rehab, and these include:

  • Increased tolerance: needing to take more of the drug to achieve the desired effects.
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms: you may feel fatigued, irritable, anxious or depressed if you attempt to stop or reduce amphetamine use.
  • Neglecting responsibilities: having difficulties keeping up with work, school or daily commitments due to your amphetamine consumption.
  • Withdrawal and isolation: if you have started to withdraw from social situations or have started taking amphetamines in favour of previously enjoyed activities, this could be a sign that you need help.
  • Preoccupation with amphetamines: constantly feeling the urge to take amphetamines and becoming preoccupied with obtaining and taking them.
  • Continuation of use despite negative consequences: being unable to stop even when you know amphetamines are causing you harm.

If you have noticed any of these signs, it is important to seek professional help. Amphetamine rehab can help you overcome any issues you are facing and put a stop to the cycles of amphetamine abuse.

Common fears about amphetamine rehab

Entering amphetamine rehab can be a daunting prospect for many of our clients. It is not uncommon for fears and uncertainties to arise, however, you should not let these worries hold you back from achieving sobriety and wellness.

Fear of withdrawal symptoms…

The prospect of experiencing withdrawal symptoms during detoxification can be a major concern for those entering amphetamine rehab. However, it is important to remember that medical professionals will be on hand to provide support and manage any symptoms, ensuring a safe and comfortable experience.

Fear of judgement…

Many worry about how others may perceive them and may be afraid to open up about their amphetamine use for fear of being judged. At Banbury Lodge, all of our staff members are in recovery themselves. They understand the complexities of drug dependency and strive to create a welcoming, judgement-free space where you can relax and open up.

Fear of failure…

The fear of relapsing after amphetamine rehab is a very real fear for many of our clients. Don’t let this fear stop you from ever trying. Without attempting amphetamine treatment, you will remain trapped in the same sequences of amphetamine use. Amphetamine dependency is a progressive condition, meaning that it will continue to worsen unless you get the help you need.

Fear of admitting a problem…

It is never easy to admit you have a problem or to say sorry to loved ones who have been affected by your amphetamine use. This is often the hardest thing about recovery, but holding your hands up and getting help is admirable. By doing this, you will feel a sense of relief and can start to rebuild.

Fears are an inherent part of amphetamine rehab with every single person experiencing anxieties about what treatment will bring. The benefits you will be met with, however, far outweigh these fears – don’t let your worries stop you from achieving long-lasting sobriety.

Amphetamine rehab: relapse prevention

According to recent studies, approximately 61% of people relapse within the first year after amphetamine treatment. It is important to note that relapse does not mean you have failed – it is merely a stepping stone that can be used as a learning opportunity as you continue amphetamine recovery. Nonetheless, you should have a plan in place to manage your cravings, identify warning signs and stop relapse before it happens.

  • Attend aftercare meetings: this could be in the form of local support groups or weekly therapy. This will help you to stay on track, guide you through any rough patches and provide valuable support as you navigate life after amphetamine rehab.
  • Avoid triggers: this could include places or people you used to take amphetamines with. Don’t put yourself at risk of using amphetamines again and try to avoid triggers completely.
  • Develop healthy coping strategies: learning how to manage negative emotions in a healthy way can prevent you from turning to amphetamines as a way to cope.
  • Build a support network: this could be supportive friends and family members or others in recovery. Encouragement from a support network can make all the difference in amphetamine recovery.
  • Practice self-care: plan nutritious meals and regular exercise. This will help you to maintain a healthy lifestyle while also supporting your mental and physical well-being.
  • Set realistic goals: it is important to remind yourself that amphetamine recovery is a journey and healing takes time. Set daily, realistic goals to keep you focused.
  • Celebrate small victories: by applauding your successes, no matter how small, you will ensure you stay motivated as you work towards your end goal.
  • Avoid alcohol and other drugs: alcohol and drugs may skew your judgement and lead to amphetamine relapse.

At Banbury Lodge, you will develop a solid relapse prevention plan to follow should you experience cravings or temptations once you leave our facility. Our primary goal is to help you reach lasting recovery, and with the help of our knowledgeable team, you can achieve this.
