Understanding Treatment Options Can Help Save Lives

There are over 21.6 million Americans currently battling drug addiction or substance abuse. Included in this number are those addicted to any illicit drug such as:

  • Heroin
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Opioids
  • Amphetamines
  • Cocaine
  • Hallucinogens
  • Marijuana

Out of that staggering total, a miniscule 17% of individuals end up seeking and receiving the life-changing treatment needed. There are various factors that go into the beginning of substance abuse and if treatment is sought with education about treatment being one of them. It’s never been more important to understand that seeking professional treatment is the best option when facing drug addiction.

Over time, the impacts of addiction can become substantially worse. Many cases of addiction end with other responsibilities such as work and loved ones take a backseat to drugs. Relationships can start to wane due to neglect or conflict stemming from how the addiction has influenced your personality. Ongoing drug use alters how the brain and central nervous system function, changing how well you can regulate your mood and control impulses.

Detox and Rehabilitation Is the Best Route

Drug addiction is extremely difficult to overcome alone and in the most severe cases, can even be life-threatening. Once a dependence on a certain drug has been developed in the brain, it can struggle to function without that drug being present. When you stop taking the drug, your brain goes into a state of panic known as withdrawal.

Withdrawal comes with its own set of withdrawal symptoms that can range from slight discomfort to fatal seizures and tremors. Medically-assisted detox is available in these situations to make you as comfortable as possible during withdrawal while keeping your safe from symptoms that would otherwise cause irreparable damage.
