Find Alcohol Rehabilitation and Drug Rehab Facilities in Dubuque

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

Outside of the home, one of the first things that suffers when teenagers start using drugs is schoolwork. Young drug users may cut classes or skip school altogether as securing and using drugs becomes a more important part of their life. Their grades fall and teachers notice a lack of motivation. These students may find themselves getting in trouble more often as they become less concerned with the school's rules and how others perceive them.
Mushrooms are often eaten raw or cooked. They may be steeped in hot water to make a mushroom "tea" or mixed with fruit juice to make "fungus delight."< Less often they may be sniffed, snorted, or injected.
Almost everyone who has suffered from drug addiction or alcoholism was under the belief that they would be able to either control or cease using drugs and alcohol on their own. They really embraced the belief that things would never get out of control. Most attempts to cease or slow down result in a return to their drug of choice. Professionals associated with addiction medicine acknowledge that long term drug and alcohol use result in significant changes in brain chemistry. These changes may persist long after drug or alcohol use is discontinued. These changes in brain function may have behavioral consequences in the short term, including the compulsion to use drugs or alcohol despite adverse consequences. This is the defining characteristic of addiction. When you couple the aspect of craving and withdrawal symptoms with this concept, it is easy to understand why so many people find it difficult to stop without treatment.
In July 2005 Purdue Pharma voluntarily recalled Palladone after reports surfaced that the drug could prove fatal if combined with alcohol. Although the company warned people not to use the drug with alcohol, it withdrew Palladone pending further investigation. Alcohol can affect the extended-release mechanism in the drug, causing the contents of the pill to be released rapidly rather than slowly. This dose dumping could prove fatal, hence the recall.
