Yes, More will be Revealed About Addiction and Recovery

 

Welcome and Hello

Addiction Recovery is a unique occurrence that can happen in the life of anyone, no one is exempt.

* Addiction is one part, the ugly part

* Recovery is the second part a beautiful thing to witness

It is often said in the recovery community "that more will be revealed." The party, yes the party is for many where the introduction to substance begins.

What we have here is an equal opportunity employer so to speak. It is difficult to understand by the lay person.

It crosses all barriers of color,class, age and socio-economic status.

WHAT IS ADDICTION

It is a persistent, compulsive dependence on a behavior or substance. It has been extended to include mind, mood altering behaviors or activities

There are differing discriptions, (such as substance abuse, alcoholism, drug abuse and smoking) as well as process addictions (such as gambling, shopping, eating, and sexual activity.)

Addiction is one of the most costly public health problems in the United States. It is a progressive syndrome which means that it increases in severity over time unless it is treated.

Substance abuse recovery is characterized by frequent relapses or return to the abused substance. The users and abusers often make repeated attempts to quit before they are successful.

TREATMENT IS AVAILABLE

Treatment requires both medical and campingstuhl approaches. Substance addicts may need a medical detoxification to manage the withdrawal symptoms. Individual and group therapy is often helpful and required.

But these tools are only helpful after the use has stopped. Medications (such as methadone, naltreone and suboxone.)

The most frequently recommended social form of outpatient treatment is the twelve step program. The program known as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholic Anonymous. There are 12 Step Programs for all major substance and process abusers.

SOME OF THE DRUGS ARE:

* Alcohol

* Marijuana

* Cocaine

* Heroin

* Methamphetamine

* Ectasy

To Name a few, each drug has different physiological change on the body, mind and social structure.

THIS SITE WILL REVEAL AND EXPOSE SOME OF THE MYTHS.

People who are using something constantly feel the need to "feed" it. People who are using will use drugs even though there will be an adverse effect or endangering their lives.

It seems inconceivable but it is true, that in the face of danger, hurt, or harm they will still use.

REHABILITATION CENTER

It is a must that anyone who is using any substance has to have an assessment. It will determine the depth and strength of the abuse.

This will look into how the drug or alcohol is impacting the life of the addict. Treatment is then determined after the screening and assessment.

In a rehab center, there are several different kinds of treatment available.

1. Intensive Outpatient

2. Outpatient

3. Inpatient Treatment

4. Therapeutic Communities

These are just a few of the programs that are available. As we go through the many different substances that a person can be addicted to.

You will see that there are many different types of treatment. The staples are the ones I just mentioned and they are used extensively.........

There are medications that can curb or interrupt abusing behavior. Let's take a quick look at what's available.

DISULFIRAM (Antabuse): This is used for alcohol dependence/abuse. It is designed to provide users with aversive and unpleasant effects when drinking alcohol.

The drug antabuse's goal is alcohol avoidance based on the fear of experiencing the unpleasant effects.

NALTREONE (Revia): This drug is also used to curb alcohol drinking. It has been noted that after taking the drug, the frequency of drinking is reduced and the likelihood of relapse is reduced.

ACAMPROSATE (Campral): This drug like Naltreone is used to reduce drinking. These medications are still under review although they have shown to have fair results.

METHADONE: The government has approved this medication to curb opiate (heroin addiction). Opiate users can be addicted to illicit (street) drugs or prescription drugs (such as vicodin or oxycontin).

Opiate users at some point become physically dependent and continue to use to avoid withdrawal. Withdrawal while it is not life threatening, it is unpleasant.

LEVO-ALPHO ACETYL METHADOL (LAAM): This drug is an alternative to methadone which is primarily used as a replacement therapy for opiate drugs.

This drug sometimes preferred over methadone because it requires less frequent dosing, allowing for fewer clinic visits.

BUPRENORPHINE: This is an office based treatment similar to methadone. This medication comes in sublingual tablets and can be self-administered

Many users being treated with buprenorphine report better results and less failures even with previous failure on methadone.

As I said when we started out, "this is an expose" and we will cover many things, from the first use of substance and it effects to recovery from substance use and its effects
