How Do I Stop Taking Drugs?
There are no hard and fast rules for stopping taking drugs. If you rely on you drug addiction day in, day out, for a sustained period of time, it is extremely difficult to break free from drug addiction. Worse, if you have been using a particularly toxic substance, your body will struggle to shift it without serious risks to your health.
For all of these reasons, a measured, controlled, and fully safe way to go through drug detox, is to do so at a rehab centre. You can get detox for any drug addiction, but the time spent under the supervision of a medical team depends entirely on what you used, and for how long.
Drug Detox is unlikely to work unless you decide, once and for all, that you won’t take drugs anymore. You have to make that decision as the best thing to do for yourself. How do you do this? We advise you to pick a reason.
Find something you care about more than drugs… and there will always be something. Be it the love of your partner, a family member, or a good friend, find a reason to keep on living for. Let’s not beat about the bush; dug addiction will eventually kill you. If you can’t find something worth living for then make it a promise to someone. Decide in that moment that you have had enough of living the way you do. Only when you have set this intention within yourself can you finally quit taking drugs for good.
When you have made that decision, check into a rehab clinic for drug addiction near you. When you choose Verve Health for this, you will be subjected to the finest quality of therapies and treatments, all designed to get you off drugs.
What Does Drug Detox Involve?
Quit Taking Drugs, No Matter the Substance
When it comes to substance abuse recovery and breaking free from drug addiction, there are no hard and fast rules. That being said, we can advise what treatment will involve dependant on what your substance of choice is.
Recovering from a Cocaine Addiction
Like many addictions, cocaine abuse will make changes to your brain that are counterintuitive to optimal healthy function. The prefrontal cortex is damaged, usually around the areas that control your behaviour. Addictions cause reduced portions of grey matter in the brain.
When you suffer from a cocaine addiction, you might only take that drug on a weekend… but all weekend. You might spend every spare penny on the drug, lose friends over it, and even put yourself in dangerous situations in order to get your hands on some. When you start phoning your friends at 3 am on a Sunday night looking for a hook up, it is time to seek out our help.
Our high-end rehab clinics can bring you the support you need to get off cocaine addiction. We will support you with our on-site medical team and specialists in cocaine recovery. You will have access to groups, workshops and therapies that will help you to recover.
If you are suffering from a cocaine addiction and you want to go to rehab, contact us right now. We will support you through both the detox and the rehab processes, allowing you to get better in your own time.

How to Recover from a Heroin Addiction
When you are suffering from a heroin addiction, the substance abuse urges within you are as strong as they can possibly be. It will usually take another addictive substance to wean you off of heroin – and that’s where methadone comes into play.
When you decide you want to stop taking heroin, you first look around for resources to help you. The resources for quitting heroin addiction in the UK are fairly limited, unless you come through a private rehab clinic like we have here at Verve Health.
We will take care of you, from detox to releasing your daily doses, until you are free from drugs, for good. If you want to get off heroin, our medical teams are on-hand to tend to your every need. Heroin addiction can be particularly hard to kick because of the strength of the substance involved – but with our help, you can recover one day at a time.
