Drug Rehab Saco Maine

Find Alcohol Rehab and Drug Rehabilitation Facilities in Saco

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

Drug use was significantly related to lower social conformity, more criminal activity (during adolescence but not during young adulthood), having a deviant peer network, and involvement in drug and property crimes. Adolescent social conformity was significantly associated with lower criminal and deviant behavior. Engaging in adolescent criminal activity was substantially related to property crime involvement in young adulthood. In young adulthood, criminal activities and property and violent crime involvement were all highly intercorrelated in a positive direction, while drug crime involvement was to a small degree negatively correlated with violent crime involvement and positively correlated with property crime involvement. A general tendency toward adolescent criminal activity was predictive of having confrontational friends, and having a deviant peer network was associated with property crime and arrests and convictions for property crimes. General drug use during adolescence was negatively correlated with arrests and convictions for violent crime in young adulthood, although hard drug use increased the frequency of assault violations in young adulthood.
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.
Amphetamine Treatment Admission Rates: In 1993, the treatment admission rate for primary amphetamine abuse in the United States was 14 admissions per 100,000 aged 12 or older. No State had a rate higher than 100 per 100,000. Three States had rates of 55 per 100,000 or more, and 89 percent of reporting States had rates of fewer than 28 per 100,000. By 1996, the treatment admission rate for primary amphetamine abuse in the United States had increased by 79 percent, to 24 per 100,000 aged 12 or older. Ten States had rates of at least 55 per 100,000, and three of these had rates of at least 100 per 100,000. The proportion of States with rates fewer than 28 per 100,000 had fallen to 66 percent. By 1999, the treatment admission rate for primary amphetamine abuse in the United States as a whole had increased to 32 per 100,000 aged 12 or older. Thirteen States had rates of at least 55 per 100,000, and eight of these had rates of 100 per 100,000 or more.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration keeps track of drug use and the status of drugs across the United States. In 2001, the most recent year for which statistics are available, it reported that heroin is still one of the two "primary drugs of abuse in the state of Massachusetts. . . . High-quality heroin is available from gram to kilogram quantities throughout the state. . . . High-quality heroin is purchased in pure form, then cut [mixed with other ingredients] and repackaged for resale. Heroin distribution and use continues to be spread throughout the state, with extremely low wholesale/retail prices and purity levels routinely exceeding 60%. Abuse remains widespread, with continued reports of heroin overdose deaths and incidences occurring throughout the state." The story is similar in other states. In California, the heroin is of very good quality and is smuggled into the state via Mexico. DEA agents explain: "The increased availability of high-purity heroin, which can effectively be snorted, has given rise to a new, younger user population. While avoiding the stigma of needle use, this group is ingesting larger quantities of the drug and, according to drug treatment specialists, progressing more quickly toward addiction."
