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. Thesigns and symptoms of substance abuse include: • Inability tostop using drugs • Mood changesor emotional instability • Changes in relationships with family members or friends • Withdrawalsymptoms when drug use is stopped • Unusual lackof coordinationand poor balance INFO247DRUGADDICTIONHELP.COM

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 pat ient’ 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 thebody and brain. 866 403-5607

Treatment Options Detox therapy 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 achievinglong-term abstinence. 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 helpease thesymptoms of detoxificationand withdrawal.
