Someone who stops using methadone suddenly will suffer the withdrawal symptoms typical of all opiates, including diarrhea, nausea, chills, muscle pains, anxiety, insomnia, sweating, and frequent yawning or sneezing. In order to quit using the drug without these symptoms, it is necessary to lower the dose slowly over a period of months. This allows the body to adjust its brain chemistry gradually. Again, patients must be highly motivated to stay with the program, as even small reductions in dosage can bring a mild onset of withdrawal symptoms.
Intravenous drug use is responsible for one-third of all new cases of AIDS and one-half of new cases of hepatitis C in the United States. Once these conditions are contracted, they can then be passed on to sexual partners and to children. Heroin addicts face danger because it is impossible for them to know the ingredients in their product. The quality of legal drugs is monitored by the Food and Drug Administration. Illegal drug dealers will make no promises about content or quality. As a result, users have no idea what kind of contaminants the heroin will contain, and they never know how much pure heroin they are getting in a purchase. Due to this fact a heroin overdose can happen during any use.
The major and minor tranquilizers are legal as manufactured and prescribed and are classified as Schedule II, III, or IV controlled substances under the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA). However, manufacturing, distributing, and selling these drugs without a prescription are subject to federal and state penalties. The CSA dictates penalties of up to 15 years imprisonment and fines up to $25,000 for unlawful distribution or possession of a controlled substance.

These abusers may also use other drugs, alcohol, and nicotine, which adversely affect the pregnancy.

There is increasing information that cocaine may cause birth defects with increased rates of malformation, low birth weights, and behavioral abnormalities.
Addiction is one of the many consequences of so-called 'casual' drug and alcohol abuse. A loss of control over drugs and alcohol can be driven by physical or psychological factors, or sometimes both. Physical addiction takes place when the body comes to need a drug to function normally. If it is not taken, unpleasant withdrawal symptoms occur. The only way to avoid this is to take more of the drug. Psychological addiction takes place when an individual comes to rely on a drug to supply good feelings, such as relaxation, self-confidence, self esteem, and freedom from anxiety. This is not just a casual desire, it's a powerful compulsion.
Drug rehabilitation is a place or program that an individual enters to treat a drug or alcohol addiction. Through therapy and education, the individual is restored to their former non-drug using self. They are then able to re-enter society clean and sober. There are many reasons why a person would need to attend a drug rehabilitation program. Some of the many reasons are: the inability to control their drinking or drug use, alienating their friends and family, problems with the law, and problems at work. Also, there are several different types of drug rehabilitation programs available: inpatient, outpatient, residential, short-term, and long-term.
Relapse is a term used to describe when an individual who has quit using drugs starts using once again. A relapse can mean just a one time use, a long term continues period of using or anything in between after a period of sobriety has taken place. An individual begins to experience a psychological relapse long before their first use after
quitting. Some things that can lead to relapse both physically or psychologically include: 1. Being in the presence of drugs or alcohol, drug or alcohol users, or places where you used or bought chemicals. 2. Feelings we perceive as negative, particularly anger; also sadness, loneliness, guilt, fear, and anxiety. 3. Positive feelings that make you want to celebrate by using. 4. Listening to others past drug use stories and just dwelling on getting high. 5. Believing that you no longer have to worry (complacent). That is, that you are no longer stimulated to crave drugs/alcohol by any of the above situations or by anything else – and therefore maybe it’s safe for you to use occasionally.
Detox is necessary when an individual through their chronic use of drugs or alcohol has developed an addiction. The objective of detox is to help the individual achieve a drug and alcohol free state. Detox is intended to relieve the physical symptoms of withdrawal and helps prepare the individual for entry into drug rehabilitation. Therefore, the ultimate goal of detox is preparation for long term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
