  3. Recognizing Drug Addiction There are numerous reasons why people begin using drugs but the vulnerability to substance abuse differs significantly from one person to another. However, diagnosing a drug addiction does not entirely depend on physical manifestations of the drug addict. Once drug addiction sets in, the person becomes physically, emotionally, and mentally dysfunctional, and hence, medical professionals need to use a series of both physical and behavioral diagnostic criteria to determine if someone has an addiction. The signs and symptoms of substance abuse include: • Inability to stop using drugs • Mood changes or emotional instability • Changes in relationships with family members or friends • Withdrawal symptoms when drug use is stopped • Unusual lack of coordination and poor balance info@247drugaddictionhelp.com

  4. Treatment Options There are varieties of evidence-based approaches to treating addiction, but unfortunately, the treatment of drug addiction remains highly unutilized by most sufferers. Although the primary goal of drug abuse treatment is abstinence, relapse prevention and rehabilitation, the specific type of treatments may differ depending on the patient’s individual needs. Drug treatments can include behavioral therapy such as cognitive-behavioral therapy or contingency management, medications, or their combination. In a rehab facility, various treatment methodologies are employed to help people encounter disruptive effects of addiction on the brain and behavior and reclaim their lives. Whether you are taking the first steps toward recovery or you want to help a family member who is in the throes of addiction, a proper treatment ensures the reduction of powerful effects of drugs on the body and brain.

  5. Treatment Options Detox therapy Inpatient Drug Addiction Treatment The inpatient drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs provide every addict with the knowledge, therapy, counseling, and tools, which allow an addict to fully focus on his or her recovery. Inpatient facilities located at hospitals offer round-the-clock help, which greatly increases the chance of successfully completing a treatment program for drug abuse, especially if an addict does not have a good support system at home or has a mental illness. In an inpatient setup, patients receive therapy on a daily basis, including a mixture of individual and group therapy, to help them learn ways to overcome their addictions. Since a patient living at a facility gets the opportunity to live with other people who are struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, they are able to be a part of group therapy sessions, which help them learn and adjust from their counterparts. In the rehab, patients can focus solely on the reasons behind their addiction and move forward with a positive outlook and lifestyle, without having to worry about other commitments. Apart from various behavioral therapies, the patient may also be administered medications to help ease the symptoms of detoxification and withdrawal. A detox therapy is recommended for addiction patients to improve their chances of successful recovery and prevent relapses. In an ideal procedure, medications like buprenorphine and naltrexone, along with proper counselling, can help patients stay on the road to recovery. This process generally takes place in an inpatient rehab center with the help of adequate medical intervention. Time and again, studies have suggested that drug addiction can be better controlled with long-term maintenance therapy, using either methadone or buprenorphine. Although, patients undergoing such a treatment are still drug-dependent, they often remain untouched by the destructive effects of drug addiction. A few addicts have been found to take medicines for decades as they tend to fall back to illicit drug use after the maintenance therapy is stopped, while some others are recommended to taper off the therapy over months to years. A therapist needs to understand an addict’s complete history of drug abuse before starting any treatment, as most people tend to relapse even after achieving long-term abstinence.

  6. Outpatient Drug Addiction Treatment An outpatient drug treatment offers intensive but a brief treatment with group counseling being a major component. The treatment plan guides drug addicts through all stages of recovery, offering 24-hour supervision and access to recovery coaching to support a patient’s progress in outpatient treatment. It is a readily accessible rehab option as it allows patients to take care of their family, work, or other commitments. These programs provide patients with more freedom of movement and are ideal for people with a strong support system, a stable living situation and the internal motivation to change. The treatment regimen involves a variety of programs in which the patient visits the facility for treatment at regular intervals. (866) 403-5607 info@247drugaddictionhelp.com
