Find Drug Rehabilitation and Alcohol Treatment Centers in Dutch Harbor

There are several drug rehab options available to individuals living in the Dutch Harbor area. It is important to understand each treatment option that is available in Dutch Harbor, Alaska, in order to choose the appropriate treatment approach for yourself or a loved one. Choosing the proper drug or alcohol rehab program in Dutch Harbor, AK. 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

Concerning the past 30 days, 50% of high school seniors report drinking, with 32% report being drunk at least once.
By the early 1990s, some evidence indicated that ecstasy might damage nerve cells. Recent studies conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) have confirmed this evidence. Using advanced brain imaging techniques, one study compared people who had never used ecstasy to ecstasy users who had not used any psychoactive drug, including ecstasy, for three weeks. The researchers found that ecstasy harms certain brain cells (neurons) that release or reabsorb serotonin, a brain chemical thought to play an important role in regulating memory, mood, and many other functions. The damage to the serotonin neurons occurred throughout the brain, and people who had used ecstasy more often had more damaged serotonin neurons than those who had used the drug less frequently.
Some addicted women become prostitutes to obtain money to support their drug habit. Brenda, thirty-three, a recovering cocaine addict, describes what happened after she dropped out of a drug rehabilitation program: I stayed sober for two weeks after I left, but then I was back to using cocaine. I started prostituting to get money. It was terrible. I hated myself. I was alone, at 2 or 3 in the morning, getting in people's cars, just thinking about getting high, and afterward feeling so awful. I hated myself. Eventually Brenda, sick and exhausted, was readmitted to the program.
Taking ecstasy can produce several unpleasant effects. Users have reported nausea, jaw clenching and teeth grinding, increased muscle tension, and blurred vision, as well as panic attacks. Ecstasy also increases blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature. Some users describe a type of hangover the day after taking ecstasy, involving headache, inability to sleep, fatigue, drowsiness, sore jaw muscles, and loss of balance.
