Drug Rehab Shawnee Kansas

Find Drug Treatment and Alcohol Rehab Facilities in Shawnee

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

Evidence gathered from surveys in the United States suggest prescription drug abuse is increasing. In these surveys, prescription drug abuse in the 1980s was compared with trends in the 1990s. During the 1980s, researchers estimated that less than one-half million persons abused prescription drugs. However, this number increased by 181% between 1990 and 1998 among pain-relieving drugs. Evidence collected by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) during 1999 suggests more than four million persons in the United States over the age of 12 years were using a variety of prescription drugs for nonmedical purposes. Many of these individuals were first-time users of these drugs. Most of the first-time users were between 12 and 25 years of age.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,タ almost 17,000 people died of drug-induced causes in the United States in 1998. This excludes accidents, homicides, newborn deaths due to a mother's drug use, and other causes indirectly related to drug use. DAWN also collects data on both drug-induced and drug-related deaths. In 2000 overdose deaths accounted for more than half of all deaths reported to DAWN in thirty cities. In some cities, however, deaths were more commonly drug-related rather than actual overdoses. Individuals under twenty-five accounted for fewer than 20 percent of DAWN cases across all metropolitan areas. In about half the cities, this group accounted for fewer than 10 percent of drug abuse deaths.
Pain experts have learned that patients who take opioid drugs for long periods of time will build up a physical tolerance and may need higher and higher dosages to achieve adequate pain relief. Unfortunately, physical dependence is sometimes confused with addiction, and patients may be denied appropriate medication by a doctor who cannot tell the difference between physical dependence and psychological addiction. One way to look at it, according to some pain experts, is that the drugs should be used when they improve a person's functioning (i.e., allow for better overall functioning than what they could achieve without medication).
The first time fifteen-year-old Paige tried cocaine was in the bathroom at her public high school. "These girls had set up lines on the counter space right under the mirror. No teacher would ever come into the student bathrooms so no one worried that we'd get caught." According to a study by the U.S. Department of Justice, 70 percent of public school students think drugs are easy to get at school. Fifty-two percent of private school students surveyed believed drugs were available in their schools. Justin, a fifteen-year-old private school student, said that if you get the word out in homeroom that you're looking for a specific drug, by lunchtime you can get it delivered to your table. Adult or college-age dealers often set up student networks to extend their drug territory into the high schools and middle schools. One thirty-year-old dealer bragged that he bought a new BMW with suburban Chicago high school students' lunch money. Jennifer, seventeen, says marijuana use during the school day is common. "There are people who smoke a joint in a car outside school, and when they come in, you can just smell it on them. There are a lot of people doing it." Drugs are passed unseen between students in the crowded hallways, slipped into lockers, exchanged in the cafeteria during lunch, in the locker rooms in gym class, in cars in the parking lot, behind the bleachers, and in the bathrooms. Many teenage drug dealers carry beepers so they can be reached at any time. Several schools across the country have now banned beepers, claiming they are being used to facilitate the drug trade. According to the statistics, there are a lot more drugs in the schools than there are students who are caught using or selling them, due both to the administration's ignorance and to students' loyalties to each other.
