Find Alcohol Treatment and Drug Rehab Programs in Bessemer

There are several drug rehab options available to individuals living in the Bessemer area. It is important to understand each treatment option that is available in Bessemer, Alabama, in order to choose the appropriate treatment approach for yourself or a loved one. Choosing the proper drug or alcohol rehab program in Bessemer, AL. is the most important factor in the treatment of drug abuse, drug addiction and alcoholism. The following information will help you to understand your various treatment options so that you have the greatest chance of a successful outcome.

Let's take a look at the various treatment options that coincide with the condition of the individual seeking treatment.

Outpatient drug or alcohol rehab programs do not require patients to reside in a treatment facility during the treatment process; therefore, employment and home activities can continue during the treatment process. Typically, outpatient treatment is a method employed only in the case of moderate drug and/or alcohol use, that has not advanced to the stages of dependence or addiction.

An inpatient alcohol and drug rehab program is the correct treatment method for severe cases of drug addiction and alcoholism. Unlike out-patient rehab programs which can leave an individual susceptible to continually relapsing, inpatient drug and alcohol rehabs offer a controlled, safe environment where a person can get maximum benefit in the recovery process.

Short term drug and alcohol rehabs are inpatient treatment programs which are best suited for people that have reached the stage of addiction but the addiction stage is a year or less. The typical length of stay is 30 days or less in an inpatient treatment facility. Because of the brief duration of a short-term rehab program, people that have struggled with a severe addiction for years do not usually benefit from this method of treatment.

Long term drug and alcohol rehab provides treatment for people that have developed advanced stages of drug addiction and alcoholism. This is the only method of treatment that has shown to be effective for long term advanced cases of addiction. Long term drug and alcohol rehab programs are 60 to 90 days and longer.

Research studies show conclusively that the longer a severe drug or alcohol addicted person stays in treatment, the better the outcome. As such, the benefits of a long term drug or alcohol rehab should be taken into serious consideration when deciding upon treatment for a long term severe addiction problem.

A dual diagnosis drug or alcohol rehab may be the correct choice if one suspects that the person that is addicted to a drugs and/or alcohol due to an underlying mental health issue. Co-existing conditions are very common and both can be treated through a regime of detoxification, drug or alcohol rehabilitation, and therapy.

According to the National Association of Diaconate Directors, dual-diagnosis rehab centers should use a variety of therapy when treating those with this condition. Cognitive-behavioral therapy teaches the drug or alcohol abuser how to better deal with their thoughts and behaviors regarding their condition. Behavior management is an additional form of therapy which centers on their behaviors and actions concerning their substance abuse.

Drug or alcohol detoxification is a process that deals with the mental and physical withdrawal symptoms that are brought on when a drug or alcohol addicted person stops using the substance they are dependent on abruptly. The severity of these withdrawal symptoms is dependent upon the type of substance or substances the person is addicted to and how long they have been using. Most often, detox has a duration of 3 days to a week but in some cases such as methadone and suboxone it can be much longer.

It is important to realize that for addiction, detox is only the first step of addressing the problem. Drug and alcohol addiction is a complex problem, psychological symptoms may persist long after physical addiction symptoms have passed. Individuals not only develop a physical dependence to drugs and alcohol but in most cases, emotional and psychological dependence as well. Detox should be followed with an extensive treatment program so that the individual is emotionally and psychologically prepared for the future.

As you can imagine, one doesn't want too many failures piling up due to choosing incorrect treatment options, as the person will become hopeless and give up altogether. So it is vital to understand your options and seek the proper level of care for the severity of the substance abuse problem.

Drug Facts

Lions-Quest Skills for Adolescence (SFA). SFA is a commercially available, universal, life skills education program for middle school students in use in schools nationwide. The focus is on teaching skills for building self-esteem and personal responsibility, communication, decision-making, resisting social influences and asserting rights, and increasing drug use knowledge and consequences.
On average, every 39 minutes a drunk driver claims a victim in the United States.
A drug overdose is the misuse of drugs in amounts so high that a person can fall asleep, become unconscious, lapse into a coma, or die. Overdoses are in fact a form of poisoning. Most drugs can be deadly when taken in large quantities, whether swallowed, inhaled, or injected intravenously. Drugs such as heroin, methadone, cocaine, opioids, benzodiazepines, amphetamines, and "designer" or "club" drugs such as ecstasy can all lead to an overdose. Combining drug and alcohol use is an extremely common cause of overdoses. Even caffeine, a drug that public health professionals consider relatively harmless in terms of causing injuries, has caused fatal overdoses when people have taken huge doses in the form of pills. Whether unintentional or intentional, drug poisonings are especially harmful to the young.
Due to their high potential for abuse, most barbiturate-like substances have been replaced by newer, safer agents—such as the BZDs and non-BZD sedative-hypnotics—that exert a sedative-hypnotic effect. Meprobamate (Miltown, Equanil) was introduced in the 1950s. It had the effect of relieving anxiety without producing sleep. However, regular use produced psychological and physical dependence. Methaqualone (Quaalude, Sopor) is a nonbarbitu-rate hypnotic that is said to give a heroin-like high without drowsiness. When it was first introduced as a prescription drug to treat anxiety and insomnia in 1965, it already had a reputation as a drug of abuse in other countries. It was banned in the United States in 1984 due to the high incidence of its abuse. Despite its nickname "the love drug," it diminishes sexual performance. By 1972, "luding out"—taking methaqualone with wine—was popular on college campuses. Excessive use of the drug leads to tolerance, dependence, and withdrawal symptoms similar to those of barbiturates. Over-dose by methaqualone is more difficult to treat than barbiturate overdose, and deaths have frequently occurred. In the United States, the marketing of methaqualone pharmaceutical products was discontinued in 1984, and the drug became a Schedule I controlled substance. However, some level of occasional abuse has continued. Methyprylon (Nodular) was introduced as a sedative and hypnotic in 1955. Its effects are nearly identical to the barbiturate secobarbital (Seconal); it acts by raising the threshold of arousal centers in the CNS. However, over-dose produces shock, low blood pressure, and water in the lungs more often than respiratory depression.
