Drug Addiction
- a killer compulsion

Drug addiction is a progressive disease that worsens over time, causing damage to physical, mental and emotional well-being. An individual who is addicted is unable to control their use of substances, leading to potentially fatal consequences.

According to the United Nations, 31 million people suffer from drug use disorders, resulting in 200,000 recorded drug-deaths annually.

However, the true toll is likely to be far higher as many drugs fatalities go unrecorded due to the underlying cause of death being misreported.

Even if not directly resulting in death, drugs still destroy lives. Tear families apart. Ruin careers. And cause untold misery and suffering.

Many people don't understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs or other substances.

They may mistakenly think that addicts lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop their drug use simply by choosing to. In reality, addiction is a complex disease, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will.

Additional Problems of Drug Addiction

Drug addiction occurs when an individual becomes psychologically and/or physically dependent on substances, which may include illegal drugs or prescription medication.

One can experience a strong compulsion to use drugs despite negative consequences as well as the inability to stop by willpower alone.

Chronic drug abuse can have catastrophic short- and long-term effects on an individual’s mental and physical health.

They can differ depending on the type of substance, how much and how often it’s taken and the person’s general health. Overall, the consequences of drug abuse and dependence can be far-reaching: lung disease, stroke, brain damage, heart conditions and death.

Drugs change the brain in ways that make quitting hard, even for those who want to. Fortunately, researchers know more than ever about how drugs affect the brain and have found treatments that can help people recover from drug addiction and lead productive lives.
Symptoms of Drug Addiction

Some types of drugs will have specific symptoms, although symptoms common to misuse of any kind of drugs include:
  • Sudden changes in behaviour and daily routines
  • Mood swings; being irritable one moment and then suddenly cheerful
  • Becoming withdrawn from family and friends
  • Becoming careless about personal grooming
  • Loss of interest in hobbies, sports and other favourite activities
  • Changed sleeping pattern; up at night and sleeping during the day
  • Withdrawal symptoms like bloodshot eyes and frequent bloody noses
  • Changes in personality & behaviour like a lack of motivation, irritability, & agitation
  • Failing in attempts to stop
  • Becoming secretive

Treatment for Drug Addiction

Phoenix Individual Retreat was born from a single-minded vision: to provide clients with the most luxurious, confidential and effective treatment for addiction and other disorders. We offer a safe space, a sanctuary away from the pressures and stresses of everyday life in which clients can address their problems and create a pathway to a healthier and more fulfilled life. In other words, the chance to re-balance, re-focus and renew.

As part of the admissions process, each client receives a personalised Phoenix Pathway – a highly detailed plan setting out all aspects of their medical, therapeutic and psychological treatment – which is reviewed regularly throughout their stay at Phoenix Individual Retreat. For many clients, this plan will cover a range of issues or disorders to ensure that they receive a truly holistic solution to their problems. For example, research has shown that gambling addicts are 4 times more likely than the average person to suffer with an alcohol addiction problem and it is important any such co-dependencies are identified and treated simultaneously.

At the end of their stay, clients will receive a detailed Aftercare Plan which ensures they remain in regular contact with the Phoenix team and are able to maintain and strengthen their recovery as they re-engage with their day to day lives.

  Client Stories
Coming to my senses Coke had been a part of my life for so long that, looking back, what happened to me seems almost inevitable. Everyone I knew did it. It was a part of every social occasion, every dinner party, every night out. And life was good. Or it felt so at the time. But then the fun went out of it, my health began to suffer, work began to dry up, I stopped going out, stopped seeing people.
When the party ends For me, it felt like life had been one big party since I was sixteen. Coming from a wealthy family I’d never had to worry about anything, everything in my life was taken care of and – so it seemed – I had a fantastic future mapped out for me. So what went wrong? Why did I find myself in my mid-twenties in a hospital bed de-toxing from the drugs and alcohol.
