Find Alcohol Rehabilitation and Drug Treatment Facilities in Selawik

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

Producing methamphetamine is relatively inexpensive and its manufacturing directions are easy to obtain. With the rising use of methamphetamine among parents and women, child welfare workers may come in contact with a laboratory as part of their normal activities. A methamphetamine laboratory is an illegal operation that produces methamphetamine. Laboratories can range from large-scale production facilities to the basement of any house to "mobile labs" found in the trunks of cars and hotel rooms. In spite of recent efforts to make producing methamphetamine more difficult, the chemicals needed for manufacturing it and the access to those chemicals cannot be eliminated. Methamphetamine is most often manufactured by streetchemists who lack formal training in handling dangerous chemicals. Laboratories are usually in more rural locations since manufacturing metliamphetamine gives off a strong odor, typically either unusually sweet or a strong odor that smells like auto parts cleaner or ammonia. Two primary concerns exist with the manufacture of methamphetamine. One concern is explosion. Some of the chemicals are highly explosive if mixed improperly, and explosions are dangerous to anyone in the vicinity of the laboratory. However, exposure to the toxic chemicals, typically through ingestion, inhalation, or direct contact, used in methamphetamine production is dangerous in the absence of an explosion, and this is the second area of concern. Excessive amounts of ingredients or equipment are serious cause of concern, and should alert child welfare workers to seek additional assistance before entering the home. To illustrate the waste associated with methamphetamine production, for every pound of methamphetamine produced, approximately 5 to 7 pounds of toxic waste is produced. This waste is often improperly disposed of, contaminating soil and water, and may be found in the yard, garage, or in garbage cans. In addition to noticing the environmental indicators of production, child welfare workers must also be aware of the effects of methamphetamine exposure.
Commercial-grade marijuana prices have remained relatively stable during the past decade, ranging from $400 to $1,000 per pound in Southwest border areas and $700 to $2,000 per pound in the Midwest and Northeast. The national price range for sinsemilla, a higher quality of marijuana, is $900 to $6,000 per pound. BC Bud, a type of marijuana produced in Canada, sells for $5,000 to $8,000 per pound in most major U.S. metropolitan areas. Variables such as buyer/seller relationships, quantities purchased, frequencies of purchase, and purity affect drug prices.
Alcohol use by college students is a factor in 40% of academic problems, 28% of dropouts, and 80% of acts of vandalism. 95% of violent crime on college campuses is alcohol related. 90% of all reported campus rapes involved use of alcohol by the victim or the perpetrator.
