Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Addictions to drugs and alcohol have many things in common. The most prominent of these is how devastating the addiction can be on the addict’s health, both physically and emotionally. Don’t let drug and alcohol addiction control your life or the life of a loved one any longer. Call us at Drug-Rehab.org and speak with one of our addiction rehab program placement counselors. Our goal is to match you or your loved one with a treatment plan that will work.
Drug Alcohol Addiction Science
Both alcohol and drug addiction causes chemical dependencies in the body. When the addict first used alcohol or drugs, a “high” in their body made them feel good, even if they seemed unhappy on the surface. The problem really turned ugly when drinking or doing drugs became a “need” instead of a “want.” When an addict feels physically ill and emotionally unwell when not using, it is a dangerous signal that a person is truly addicted.
Drugs and alcohol addiction can physically harm the body, especially when addicts take in too much or drink for too long. Potential side effects of long-term substance abuse include greater risk for cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes and nerve damage. Although withdrawing from an addictive substance can be uncomfortable for a time, it is healthiest for the addict in the long run. Nevertheless, it is safest to conquer drug alcohol addiction under professional supervision, which is why all of the drug rehab programs we recommend offer medically necessary supervision.
Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment
There are multiple types of alcohol drug addiction treatments. We can match addicts with outpatient or inpatient programs, group or private therapy and medicated or non-medicated treatments. Many of the programs we recommend combine more than one type of treatment. For example, you or your loved one may benefit from inpatient therapy with medication, followed by outpatient therapy or possibly outpatient private therapy coupled with group therapy every few weeks.
There are other potential benefits of professional treatment, too. Some programs help addicts rebuild their lives once they free themselves of addiction. Other programs offer long-term follow-up treatment. Whatever form of treatment we recommend, you can be sure that we’ll find a program that fits the lifestyle and the budget you or your loved one have to work with. If you have any questions about specific forms of treatment, just let us know. We’re here to help!
