Drug addictions treated in Surrey
It is possible for people to develop a harmful addiction to many different substances. These may include illegal drugs such as ecstasy/MDMA, cocaine or heroin, or legal prescription drugs which are usually prescribed for pain relief purposes.
Some of the drug addictions that we are able to treat include:
- Heroin addiction – heroin is a dangerous and highly addictive opiate drug, derived from the strong painkiller, morphine. Heroin is most commonly injected, although it is also possible for this substance to be smoked or snorted. Heroin has very strong anaesthetic effects which cause addiction and tolerance to this drug to build rapidly. This results in individuals needing to take increasingly higher quantities of the drug, and more frequently, in order to achieve the desired ‘high’. Further information at Life Works websites
- Cocaine addiction – cocaine is a potent stimulant that typically comes as a white powder. The most common method of consuming cocaine is via snorting, although it is also possible for cocaine to be injected. Cocaine use results in extreme euphoria, which can be highly addictive to many people, and causes tolerance to build quickly. Further information at the Life Works website.
- Crack cocaine addiction – crack cocaine, also known as simply ‘crack’, is the crystallised form of cocaine. Crack cocaine takes its name from the characteristic cracking or popping noise that it makes when it is exposed to heat. Crack is usually smoked and causes a rapid onset of euphoria, which peaks and subsides after only a few minutes. This accelerated cycle of abuse causes crack cocaine addiction and tolerance to build rapidly
- Ecstasy addiction – ecstasy, also commonly referred to as MDMA, is a dangerous stimulant drug. Ecstasy causes users to experience high energy, extreme euphoria and also causes the release of the brain’s ‘happy chemicals’, serotonin and dopamine, resulting in feeling of intense closeness, intimacy and happiness. These effects mean that ecstasy is common amongst club and party-goers, and it has become widely known as one of the most popular ‘club drugs’. Ecstasy is typically swallowed as a tablet but may also be snorted as a powder, and causes addiction and tolerance to build rapidly. Further information at the Life Works website.
- Cannabis addiction – cannabis, widely known as ‘weed’ or ‘marijuana’, is taken from the cannabis plant and is most commonly smoked although it is becoming increasingly common for this drug to be baked or cooked in various foods. Cannabis is one of the most widely abused substances in the UK and causes users to experience feelings of relaxation, pleasure and tranquillity, effects which can be highly addictive to many people. Further information at the Life Works website.
- New psychoactive and illicit substance (legal high) addiction – new psychoactive substances, widely referred to as ‘legal highs’, are potent psychoactive substances that usually contain a range of unknown chemicals that have not undergone sufficient testing to understand the effects that they can have on the human brain and body. Illicit substances are substances that are widely available and can cause psychoactive effects when they are abused e.g. sniffing solvents and glue. New psychoactive and illicit substances tend to mimic the effects of illegal drugs and can cause significant harm and even be fatal. One of the most commonly abused new psychoactive and illicit substances is a drug known as spice
- Ketamine addiction – ketamine, which is also known as simply ‘ket’, is a powerful hallucinogenic and anaesthetic drug which was first created to be used in hospitals and veterinary surgeries in order to provide pain relief during human and animal operations. Ketamine can come as a white, grainy powder which is usually snorted, or it can also come in liquid form which can be injected
- Amphetamine addiction – amphetamine, also widely referred to a ‘speed’, is a powerful stimulant drug that typically comes as a white powder or small crystals. Amphetamine can be ingested via injecting, smoking, snorting, or by dabbing it onto the gums. Amphetamine causes feelings of extreme alertness and confidence, prolonged bursts of energy, and intense euphoria
- Prescription drug addiction - prescription drugs are typically prescribed by doctors or medical professionals in order to provide pain relief following an operation or injury. However, these drugs are known to result in feelings of euphoria and pleasure and as such, can be highly addictive. Further information at the Life Works website.
