Most drug use starts casually, before uses lose control and find that they need more drugs, more often. As drug abuse increases in volume and frequency, so does the intensity of unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, making it even harder to quit. We treat substance abuse, occasionally referred to as physical and/or psychological dependence, which is a disorder that develops because of using legal and illegal drugs. Physical dependency is a result of recurring drug abuse that disrupts the communication of neurotransmitters in the brain, making drug abuse the only way to stimulate pleasure-giving brain chemicals. Psychological dependency usually takes longer to establish, and longer to treat. When an addict thinks that they need the drug to feel happy or normal, and even the thought of not having the ability to acquire or use the drug causes stress and anxiety, then dependency has been established. Both physical and psychological dependence must be addressed together as part of a comprehensive rehab plan for drug or alcohol addiction. Addicts need a skilled, dedicated staff to help end their suffering.
Detox for Drug Addiction
With prolonged use, substance abuse can create strong physical dependency. This means that the addicted person’s body has grown used to the substance’s presence in the body. The body makes the drugs a part of its normal functions. Removing these substances from the body causes withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can sometimes be very tame, such as headaches, or stomach pains. However, some withdrawal symptoms can be quite dangerous, such as cardiac arrest or seizures. To safely break physical dependency, an addicted person must go through detox. Detox removes harmful substances from the body under the supervision of trained medical staff. They can give the patient medication and other help that will keep the most dangerous withdrawal symptoms at bay. They can also give assistance that can reduce the pain of the less dangerous symptoms. Attempting to quit a drug alone or cold turkey can be very dangerous, so we recommend that everyone enters into a detox program prior to getting any other treatment. The detox center will ensure that your detox experience is safe and comfortable.
There are two types of detox for people with drug addictions. These are social detox and medical detox. Social detox is best for people who expect to have more minor symptoms. In social detox, clients reside together in a facility while they detox. They are able to interact and make connections with people in a residential setting. This helps people be able to return to regular life after their treatment is done. Medical detox is for people who require more intensive treatment. Here, patients detox under close supervision from medical professionals. They are able to receive the care they need to stay safe from dangerous symptoms. We can help people in Denver, CO to find which type of detox is best for them. It is important for people who have completed detox to immediately enter a rehab facility. Without a rehab treatment, addicted people are much more likely to relapse after their detox. We want to help you find the right treatment for you, so contact us today.
How Does Rehab Work?
Rehab, or rehabilitation, is the complicated process by which an addict withdraws from their substance of dependency and takes part in several sorts of therapy that help the person acknowledge their problems. They then make behavioral adjustments to maintain sobriety, examine their reasons for using and learn to avoid relapses and temptation. At a drug addiction program, there is a group of recovery specialists responsible for the many facets of recovery, including assessment, medical care, therapy, life skills training, family education and therapy, and follow-up care. A residential program is a cross between inpatient and outpatient treatment, combining round-the-clock supervision with the opportunity to experience real-life situations and circumstances, to achieve the ultimate goal of reintegration into society. While residing in gorgeous, home-like accommodations, clients participate in group and individual counseling, behavioral modeling therapy, self-help group meetings every day, recreational activities, daily trips to the gym, and various social activities. Contact 720-664-7440 to reach our recovery professionals for additional details regarding treatment locations, the consequences of drug use, or substance abuse in general.
What Types of Drug Addiction Help Are Available?
There are three types of treatment plans that are available for people looking to enter recovery. These three types are inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, and residential treatment. These different treatment options have different strengths to help you get the right kind of care you need.
Outpatient treatment is part-time, usually between 10 to 12 hours a week, meaning that the recovering user comes to the facility, but they do not stay in the facility. These programs usually run between three months to one year. Ultimately, outpatient treatment is right for those who have more mild addictions.
Inpatient treatment means the person stays at a facility for a period of time - usually between three weeks and six months. While staying at the facility, they undergo intensive treatment. Inpatient treatment has a higher success rate than outpatient treatment, but it is also more expensive. Further, inpatient treatment interrupts daily life. Ultimately, inpatient treatment is especially effective for those who have undergone serious addictions.
Residential treatment means that patients live in a residence with other patients. Treatment staff transport the patients to the treatment center each day. In this way, they experience the benefits of both inpatient and outpatient treatment. Residential treatment is best for those who want to keep their treatment and living areas separate, but they still want to separate themselves from their toxic environments.
