Types of addictions: 

There are many types of addiction which can be treated in rehab centres. Generally, the different types of addictions fall into two categories: behavioural and substance addictions.  

Although there are many common types of addiction such as alcohol addiction (also known as alcoholism) and drug addictions. However, it is a known fact that you can become addicted to anything, whether it be an activity, person, or something edible.  

You become addicted to something when you experience detrimental effects from it. However, there are many other signs which show that you are addicted to something.  

Addiction treatment and services 

Some of the rehab centres in the West Midlands will follow the same approach when it comes to helping an individual overcome their addiction. Usually, the process is as follows: 

  • Detoxification  
  • Rehabilitation 
  • Aftercare 
  • Family support 
  • Treatment packages  

However, this may not be in the case, as rehabilitation is tailored to each individual and their addiction.
