Drug Rehab Los Alamos New Mexico

Find Drug Rehab and Alcohol Rehabilitation Programs in Los Alamos

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

Heroin is very addictive. Consider as an illustration that with regular use, tolerance develops. This means the abuser must use more, to achieve the same intensity or effect. As higher doses are used over time, physical dependence and addiction develop. With physical dependence, the body adapts to the presence of the drug and withdrawal symptoms occur if use is reduced or stopped. The ramifications of heroin withdrawal are an ugly and dangerous experience. Watery eyes, runny nose, no appetite, tremors, panic, chills, sweating, vomiting, and muscle cramps. Addicts cannot sleep, and their body temperatures and blood pressure rise. By that time, most of them have alienated themselves from everyone, so they are alone. People who are addicted to heroin also face serious problems even when they try to quit using. In the following manner, Jose Gonzalez a lifetime user explains,
Lortab combines a narcotic analgesic (painkiller) and cough reliever with a non-narcotic analgesic for the relief of moderate to moderately severe pain. Individuals develop an addiction to Lortab because it produces feelings of well-being. Once an individual has developed an addiction to Lortab they will often get multiple prescriptions from different doctors to support their addiction. Lortab activates the brain�s reward systems. The promise of reward is very intense, causing the individual to crave more Lortab and to focus his or her activities around taking the drug. The ability of Lortab to strongly activate brain reward mechanisms and its ability to chemically alter the normal functioning of these systems is what produces an addiction to Lortab. Lortab also reduce a person�s level of consciousness, harming the ability to think or be fully aware of present surroundings.
Stimulants can cause the heart to beat faster and blood pressure and metabolism to increase. They also can cause users to become more talkative, energetic, and anxious.
