Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse is a serious disease requiring professional treatment. Most illicit drugs flood the brain with dopamine, a type of neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. This overstimulation induces feelings of euphoria and happiness, causing an intensely pleasurable “high” that often leads to misuse of drugs or alcohol. Many people develop a tolerance and subsequent addiction because more drugs or alcohol are required to satisfy the powerful cravings linked to the dopamine high.

Treatment Approaches

Inpatient and residential treatment facilities with detox programs are especially beneficial for individuals with chronic addiction to substances including alcohol, sedatives, hypnotics, opioids and barbiturates, among others. Outpatient facilities are typically better suited for those with less severe addiction problems. Residential treatment centers provide a multidisciplinary approach to addiction recovery. The detox process generally includes 24/7 medical supervision and different types of medication to ease withdrawal symptoms. For example, detox from alcohol can be quite severe and is typically a three-phase process. Medically-supervised alcohol detox often includes the administration of benzodiazepines, a class of drug considered the gold standard pharmacotherapy for alcohol withdrawal. The first phase of alcohol detox occurs over a period of 72 hours and is the most dangerous due to major withdrawal symptoms. Detox duration and withdrawal symptoms vary by drug, severity of addiction, overall health, co-occurring disorders, age and other factors.

Care is provided in a structured treatment environment starting with withdrawal/detox and extending through treatment strategies following discharge. Once detox is complete, the client is encouraged to live a healthier lifestyle, starting with dietary modifications and structured exercise programs. A wide array of services are offered including individual therapy, group therapy, 12-step programs and complementary therapies such as acupuncture and yoga. Drug rehab encompasses education targeted at teaching clients about addiction and what triggers it. After clients thoroughly understand what has happened to their minds and bodies, they are better equipped to take control of their lives. Research shows addiction-specific medications combined with behavioral therapy ensure the best chance for successful recovery in most clients.

While retraining the brain and rebalancing biochemistry is possible, the previous neuropathways between addiction and pleasure will always exist, therefore, it does not take much to trigger relapse. In order to achieve long-term recovery, a lifelong commitment to complete abstinence from drugs and alcohol is necessitated.
