Find Alcohol Rehabilitation and Drug Rehab Centers in Mountain Village

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

Inhalants are not usually used with another illicit substance, though early users of inhalants have, on later surveys, reported early use (before age 18) of other drugs as well: marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, and hallucinogens. Because some inhalants are flammable, this adds the additional health danger of fire and burns if someone near the abuser lights up to smoke tobacco or marijuana.
Drunk drivers are also notorious for driving in the opposite direction of the traffic flow because they turn into highway exits or don't see "one-way" signs. It is not uncommon for drunk drivers to get into accidents that do not involve other cars. Some drivers tend to think it is okay to drive while intoxicated as long as it is on roads that are unpopulated because the risk of running into another car is diminished. However, there are a number of instances in which drunk drivers have had severe car accidents involving trees, power lines, ditches, or even houses.
Men accounted for 72 percent of the excessive drinking deaths in 2001, and those 21 and younger made up 6 percent of the death toll.
Sedative drugs are also called hypnotics or SEDATIVE-HYPNOTICS. They are sometimes referred to as "minor tranquilizers" or "anxiolytics" (antianxiety medications). Technically, a sedative decreases activity and calms, while a hypnotic produces drowsiness, allowing for the onset and maintenance of a state of Sleep similar to natural sleep and from which the sleeper may be easily awakened. The same drug used for sedation, pharmacologically induced sleep, and general systemic anesthesia may be seen to induce a continuum of central nervous system (CNS) depression. Such drugs are usually referred to, therefore, as sedative-hypnotics, and they are widely prescribed in the treatment of insomnia (sleep problems). Although some people take these drugs only occasionally and for specific sleep problems (grief, time-limited stress, long-distance flights), many more take them over prolonged periods (months and even years) as a presumed aid to nightly sleep. They do this despite medical advice to restrict such drugs to about two weeks of use.
