Drug Abuse and Addiction
Treatment For Drug Abuse And Addiction
All drug addiction treatment programs are not created equally.According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 40 to 60% of people relapse after their first drug rehab treatment. Overwhelmingly our calls are from people who have already completed drug and alcohol rehab once, twice or more. This means that program isn’t working and it’s time for something new. At Addiction Campuses we have personalized drug abuse treatment programs for individuals struggling with:
Just because alcohol is legal, doesn’t mean it’s not a drug. Alcohol is not just a drug, but it is the drug most widely used and one of the drugs that causes the most addiction, disease, and violence. Surveys of people incarcerated for violent crimes indicate that about 40% had been drinking at the time they committed these offenses. Among those who had been drinking, average blood-alcohol levels were estimated to exceed three times the legal limit. Drinking is especially common among perpetrators of specific crimes, including murder, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence.
Illegal Drug Addiction
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more Americans die every day from drug overdoses than from car accidents — an average of 110 people per day. Illegal drugs remain high on the list for abusers because they are highly addictive and not hard to find. The SAMHSA reported noted however, that almost 25 million young people aged 12 and older are current illegal drug users, or they had used drugs such as cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens in just the past month.
Prescription Drug Addiction
These are the drugs given to us almost innocently, by our physicians. Usually, these pills are prescribed because of a surgery or an injury that is causing a great deal of pain. Drugs like Oxycotin, Lortab, Vicodin, Dilaudid, Morphine, and Hydrocodone are prescribed to help patients manage their pain so that they can live productive lives. Unfortunately, many doctors fail to share that prescription drugs are heroin in a pill form and are highly addictive and dangerous. Patients can become addicted to prescription drugs quickly and when the pill supply runs out experience painful withdrawal symptoms. Thus begins the cycle of prescription drug addiction.
Mental Health Disorders
An unfortunate part of addiction deals directly with mental health disorders. Many times a person is struggling with a mental disorder such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress syndrome, depression or obsessive compulsive disorder. Rather than treat the mental illness – this person will often turn to drugs and alcohol for temporary relief of the symptoms of the particular disorder. These drug crutches can provide relief for a short time but in order to keep the same feeling of symptom relief, the person must continue using all the while increasing the dosage intake. Before he or she knows it – addiction happens. Mental illness is not cured by self-medicating. It is worsened.
In order to understand the underlying issues in a person struggling with addiction, a treatment plan must include an assessment by a clinician who specializes in dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis is the understanding that addiction and mental illness can be occurring at the same time. One cannot be treated without treating the other. Clients with co-occurring disorders will not be successful if only the addiction is addressed and likewise they will not be successful if only the mental illness disorder is addressed. A dual diagnosis evaluation must be performed as well as reviewed closely to determine the basis of a client’s addiction and to establish the proper treatment program to maximize success.
