Treatments For Inhalants – The Process

Inhalant abuse has been on the rise in the recent years. This is not only because the

substances are readily available at home, but also because they are effective in

stimulating the body and the mind. Unfortunately, inhalants present a wide range of

challenges to the users. To begin with, these substances are very addictive. Many users

get hooked to consuming the substances but when they think of quitting, they find that it

is very challenging. Therefore, it is important to look at the treatments for inhalants. In

this article therefore, we are going to look at the process of treating inhalant addiction.

Evaluation

Evaluation is an important stage in the treatment of inhalant addiction as it presents a

chance to the therapist to evaluate the addict. This stage sets the ground for the treatment

because the therapist can use the opportunity to rate the level of addiction, discover the

causes of addiction and even note any other problem that the patient has. With that, the

treatment is set to begin. Also, the therapist asks questions to establish the real causes of

addiction on the patent and these forms the basis of the treatment. When the therapist

finds the causes of addiction, he is able to recommend the right treatment for the patient.

Detoxification

In this phase of treatment, the patient is treated with medications in order to eliminate the

effects of the inhalants in the body. Prolonged consumption of the inhalants can cause

bad effects such as mental disorders, damage to the kidney and liver as well as loss of

memory. Increased concentration of the inhalants in the blood can cause adverse effects

over time. However, with the right detoxification medications, the professionals at the

addiction centers are able to reverse the effects of the medications. The medications are

very effective in cleansing the body.

Rehabilitation

The next stage in the treatments for inhalants is the rehabilitation. In this phase, the

patient is encouraged to quit drugs altogether and where possible, he is shown the

benefits of remaining sober. Also, the therapists make effort to teach the patient about a

relapse and how to avoid it. Research has revealed that about 40% of all addicts fall back

into addiction months after leaving the centers. It is therefore important to train patients

how to avoid a relapse.

counselling counselling in the treatments

Counselling

Counselling in the treatments for inhalants comes at two levels. There is cancelling for

the patient alone as well as a counselling for the patient as well as their families. In the

individual counselling, the addict is asked questions about treatment and how things are

going. The therapist seeks to establish whether the patient has decided to quit inhalant

abuse or not. This helps determine the next course of treatment.
