The Signs of Addiction

Although mental health can be caused by addiction, we have often found the underlying mental health issues can instigate addiction problems.

You may also be experiencing a variety of physical symptoms of addiction. Which may make everyday life difficult:

  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Memory problems
  • Sudden weight changes
  • Slurred speech
  • Enlarged or small pupils
  • Nausea and vomiting

If any of this applies to you then it may be time to seek help. Our admissions team is here to answer any questions and help begin your journey to recovery.

How can I treat my Addiction?

Our most common treatment programme is residential rehabilitation which is provided at our specialist addiction hospital. Nova Recovery can provide an individualised programme created to your specific addiction needs.  We apply a holistic approach across our addiction treatments and detox methods, utilising state of the art equipment from our NHS registered addiction recovery hospital.

In order to treat your addiction, we will aim to make you fully aware of your addiction and the psychological triggers, as knowing this will make you aware of your patterns of behaviour to spot signs of relapse. This way you can put the methods learnt at Nova into action, after your stay.

Our aftercare team will also be available to you after your stay with us. As we are very aware that returning to your home environment can be very triggering. They will be available to you whenever you require and will periodically call you, to make sure you aren’t experiencing any signs of relapse or struggling with temptation.

What do we treat?
