Drug Rehab Brookline Massachusetts

Find Drug Treatment and Alcohol Rehab Centers in Brookline

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

Black cocaine is created by a chemical process used by drug traffickers to evade detection by drug sniffing dogs and chemical tests. The traffickers add charcoal and other chemicals to cocaine, which transforms it into a black substance that has no smell and does not react when subjected to the usual chemical tests.
Inhalants have a big effect on the role it plays in society. Inhalant abuse can impact families and communities. There is little awareness of inhalants in society because it is not an in-class discussed problem. Children tend to start abusing substances because they either: have easy access to substances, are unsupervised, have a lack of family communication, supervision or curfews. Researchers believe that parents and friends play a big role in inhalant abuse.1 They believe inhalants are just like drugs. Children are most likely not to use them if they are informed how dangerous they are. Friends can also help a person to stop or they can educate him/her on the negative effects of inhalants. Researchers also believe there is a lack of information given by schools about this topic. Only several years ago, most parents did not know of the lethal effects of inhalants.
Physical dependence is not the same as addiction. Physical dependence is a totally biological response of the body; addiction includes psychological or behavioral factors. A person can be physically dependent on a drug but not addicted to it. For example, a patient who has been in the hospital after major surgery may be put on regular doses of narcotic painkillers. When these are stopped, he or she may notice symptoms of withdrawal. This person has become physically dependent on (but not addicted to) painkillers.
Cocaine: An alkaloid found in the leaves of the shrub Erythroxylon coca, which grows wild and has been cultivated in South America for thousands of years. This stimulant DRUG is commonly used for its psychoactive effects in modern times, but in fact human societies have used it for thousands of years. The custom of chewing the leaves by the native peoples of the Peruvian Andes dates back at least 5000 years. Cocaine was introduced into mainstream Western society in the last two decades of the nineteenth century, in various tonics, patent medicines, and remedies. In 1886, a Georgia pharmacist introduced what was to become the most famous drink of all time, Coca-Cola, which had extract of coca leaves. Cocaine's most famous proponent was Freud, who wrote extensively of its supposed virtues. He believed it could cure MORPHINE and ALCOHOL addiction. Not surprisingly, Freud struggled with a severe addiction to cocaine.
