Find Alcohol Rehab and Drug Treatment Facilities in Portsmouth

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

We know that cocaine is a nasty actor that changes brain chemistry by stimulating dopamine and adrenaline release. The highs that it generates make it very addictive. The problem is that with any addictive drug, more of the drug is needed to get that initial high. Crack is the solid from of cocaine that is smoked. It is more concentrated, produces more intense highs, and greater lows.
Cannabis is nowhere near as addictive as nicotine or alcohol but it is wrong to say it is not habit-forming. Many users compare their daily cannabis habit with dependency on caffeine. The UK Department of Health summed it up neatly: "Cannabis is a weakly addictive drug but does induce dependence in a significant minority of regular users." Around 9% of users become addicted, although some studies estimate that over 50% of users have "impaired control" over their use of cannabis. Of the 70 million Americans estimated to have tried the drug, around two million use it daily.
