Drug Rehab Bellingham Washington

Find Alcohol Rehab and Drug Treatment Centers in Bellingham

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

Cocaethylene: Potent stimulant created when cocaine and alcohol are used together.
Legal consequences aside, long-term users of marijuana will find that it affects their ability to learn, remember, and concentrate. THC stays in the body long after the high has worn off, and it can continue to impact the brain. Additionally, some of the ingredients in a marijuana cigarette are known CARCINOGENS, or cancer-causing agents. People who smoke marijuana run a higher risk of lung cancer than those who do not.
Though some studies show that Ecstasy induces short-term memory loss and depression, other scientists claim that, as of now, no clear evidence proves that brain damage caused by Ecstasy is permanent. Still, serotonin is a powerful chemical--extreme amounts in the brain can short-circuit the body's ability to control its own temperature: "Too much serotonin can make blood vessels shrink," Molliver explains. "This reduces blood circulation and prevents heat from escaping through your skin." In some users, Ecstasy has caused their body temperatures to skyrocket from a normal 98.6 [degrees] F to as high as 110 [degrees] F--with death the end result in more than two dozen cases. Yet evidence of Ecstasy's popularity and danger is growing: In 1993, 68 emergency-room visits nationwide occurred as a result of Ecstasy; in 1997, the number jumped to 637--an 837 percent increase over five years.
The effects of methamphetamine, such as increased attention, decreased fatigue, increased activity, and decreased appetite, together with its low cost and variety of administration routes, make it a drug of choice for street youth and partygoers. Unlike other synthetic drugs, methamphetamine is quite simple to produce. Hundreds of recipes are available on the Internet, and the tools and chemicals needed to produce methamphetamine can be found in hardware stores and pharmacies. Producing methamphetamine as such can be done almost anywhere. There is a tremendous appeal for users, and addicts have the ability to produce their own supply – easily, quickly, and inexpensively.
