The specialized drug rehabilitation programs have been proven to be some of the most effective weapons against drug addiction. Yet, they are not perfect by a long shot, because successful rehabilitation can only occur so long as the patient actively works towards that goal. America’s Rehab Campuses programs have adapted to the modern scientific discoveries in human medicine and psychology and have come up with a solution to the problem. A complex, multifunctional solution meant to deliver results for years to come.
The Arizona drug rehab treatments are focusing on countering the extensive damages inflicted by the prolonged abuse of narcotics and that is a daunting task in and of itself. The opioid mechanism is so deadly precisely because it takes away the patient’s ability to control himself. It basically cripples his will by changing the way the brain functions.
Opioids will stimulate the opioid receptors located in the brain and the spinal cord and support an immense production of dopamine as a result. This natural substance is generally produced by the brain during pleasurable activities such as eating good food, having fun, participating in sports activities or having sex. The problem with opioids is that they instill a huge amount of dopamine, the type of which the brain will never release on its own, no matter the circumstances.
What results is a state of complete relaxation, accompanied by a series of other symptoms like pain numbness, euphoria, muscle relaxation, slipping in and out of reality and so on. Shortly after, the brain will instill an addictive behavior, forcing the patient to recreate that experience and seek a higher production of dopamine as often as possible. From that point on the war has begun.
Curing the disease, one symptom at a time
Addiction, despite being a basic human condition, can only be treated by treating the underlying causes first, which is what all Arizona drug rehab programs have evolved in doing. And there usually is a wide variety of underlying aspects that trigger the addictive behavior or, at least, fuel its manifestation, especially in the initial stages.
For the younger people, probably the most widespread one is curiosity and the temptation to try something new. It all starts during the younger years, but the repercussions can spread for decades, even for the rest of their lives, if their problem remains untreated.
Other triggering factors include emotional trauma, anxiety and depression, mental conditions, various diseases that cause chronic pain and so on. Not even prescription painkillers aren’t safe, so long as they are not used according to the specifications, and it seems like a lot of people abuse them regularly. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 1.6 million young adults with ages between 18 and 25 were using psychotherapeutic drugs for recreational purposes in 2014.
All these factors have contributed to the Arizona drug rehab programs to advance and adapt to the scientific findings of the 21st century so that, today, America’s Rehab Campuses offers innovation, quality, and care and support for the individual. Everybody deserves a second chance and we are here to help everyone get theirs.
