Find Drug Rehabilitation and Alcohol Treatment Programs in Palmer

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

A popular method of mixing meth with other substances is to combine methamphetamine with other stimulant substances such as caffeine or cathine into a pill known as a "Kamikaze", which is particularly dangerous due to the synergistic effects of multiple stimulants on the heart.
Amphetamines: Amphetamines are 1-phenyl-2-propylamine compounds which are colourless. Amphetamines occur as volatile liquids. They are a class of drugs used as stimulants of the central nervous system. In the 1920s Amphetamines were used most widely, in the US for medical reasons, essentially to treat depression and obesity. In 1914 Amphetamines were used in Germany as appetite suppressants. They became available in Australia (illicitly) in the mid-1980s. Ecstasy (MDMA) is a variant of Amphetamines. It was first developed to suppress appetite and subsequently found to have stimulating effects.
Heroin addicts suffer from a wide range of physical ailments, ranging from minor infections to organ failure. The all-consuming nature of heroin addiction can also lead to overwhelming psychological problems, which can culminate in suicide. Further, the emotional consequences of heroin addiction extend beyond the addicts themselves, to include an addict's family and friends. Also, heroin addiction negatively impacts society by causing increased spread of disease, addiction related crime, and exorbitant emergency room and rehabilitative treatment costs. Many experts agree on certain ideas about effective heroin abuse prevention, including the need to protect young people from the drug, as well as the need to prevent experimentation with other drugs that are believed to lead to eventual heroin use. Experts disagree on far less than they agree upon, however, and opinions vary widely on what constitutes effective drug abuse prevention in general, and heroin abuse prevention in particular. As additional prevention approaches emerge, experts grow even more divided over how to best allocate the nation's very limited prevention resources.
If death or serious bodily injury results from the use of an illegally distributed controlled substance, the person convicted of distributing that substance faces a mandatory life sentence and fines of up to $8 million.
