One difficulty with studying the long-term effects of ecstasy is that ecstasy users rarely use just one drug; therefore the deficits in learning, memory, and impulsivity cannot be linked exclusively to ecstasy. In addition, research in humans is too preliminary to be entirely sure that ecstasy use is causing these deficits. As of 2002, more studies are focusing on humans, and within the next couple of years research is expected to provide more definitive evidence of ecstasy's long-term effects, the mechanisms of action, and whether the deficits presented in this section are irreversible. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration sponsors a system called the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN), which tracks drug-related visits to emergency rooms in the United States. The number of ecstasy-related emergency room visits reported to this network jumped from 250 in 1994 to nearly 3,000 visits in 1999. Almost 80% of these episodes involve the use of another drug in addition to ecstasy, and for nearly half of these, the other drug was alcohol. About one quarter of ecstasy-related emergency room visits also show marijuana use; nearly 20% show cocaine use; and close to 40% involve combinations with ketamine.
Heroin, Opium, Morphine, and Codeine are used legally by the medical profession to relieve pain. But they are abused due to their mood-altering effects. All narcotics are extremely physically and psychologically addictive. Medical problems can include congested lungs, liver disease, tetanus, infection of the heart valves, skin abscesses, anemia and pneumonia. Death can occur from overdose.
Hydromorphone is called a "semi-synthetic" drug, meaning that it is a chemically altered version of the naturally occurring opiate morphine. By weight it is five to eight times more powerful than morphine. In its most basic form it is a fine, white (or nearly white) powder. Because the substance is so closely related to morphine, urine tests for the presence of opiates will detect it. In prescription pill form, Dilaudid appears as a pale yellow pill, and Palladone as a capsule containing pellets of various colors. Dilaudid is also available in suppositories and in a liquid formula, which is occasionally prescribed for persistent coughs. Dilaudid is dispensed in five strengths: 1 milligram, 2 milligrams, 3 milligrams, 4 milligrams, and 8 milligrams per dose. Palladone extended relief capsules come in 12 milligram, 16 milligram, 24 milligram, and 32 milligram doses.
Fetal Alcohol Effects (a less severe set of alcohol-related abnormalities) is estimated to occur in 3-5 live births per every 1,000 in the United States each year.
Residential treatment offers intensive drug addiction help over a period of weeks or months. This form of treatment has some advantages over out-patient treatment, although it may not be suitable for everyone. For example, those who are responsible for caring for young children may be better suited to attendance at an out patient treatment program. Residential treatment offers a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment where individuals can confront their own drug addiction and associated issues, with the help of qualified staff. Therapy usually consists of a mixture of group counseling, individual counseling and an introduction to the principles of a drug recovery program.
Alcoholism, also known as "alcohol dependence," is a condition that includes craving and continued alcohol abuse despite repeated drinking-related problems, such as losing a job or getting into trouble with the law. It includes four major areas:Craving: - A strong need, or compulsion, to drink. Impaired control: -The inability to limit one's drinking on any given occasion. Physical dependence: -Withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety, when alcohol use is stopped after a period of heavy drinking. Tolerance: - The need for increasing amounts of alcohol in order to feel its effects.
An intervention is when a group of loved ones and/or a trained intervention counselor meets with the person in need of help for the purpose of breaking down their denial and motivating them to immediately seek drug addiction treatment. Often, individuals in the midst of drug addiction engage in a variety of self destructive behaviors. Although baffling to friends and family members such people generally either aren't aware on a conscious level that they have a drug addiction problem, or even when they know they have a problem they may cling to the false belief that the problem will somehow go away without any outside help. When an intervention is held a moment of clarity is created
for the addict. Most people struggling with the problem of drug or alcohol
addiction will accept help the very day of the intervention.
Tolerance to a drug takes place when an individual is exposed to the same drug repeatedly and begins to build up an resistance to the drugs effects. The body then adapts and develops a tolerance for the drug. The addiction that is produced is so powerful that it creates cravings in the user. These cravings for the drug are the result of its impact on the individual's memory with feelings of pleasantness and euphoria which the individual has come to associate with the taking of the drug.
An effective therapeutic community attends to the many needs of the individual, not just his or her drug use. Care given at a therapeutic community addresses the individual's drug use and associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems. Also, a therapeutic community will continue to be flexible and provide ongoing assessments of the individual's needs, which may change during the course of care.
Remaining in care at a therapeutic community for an adequate period of time is critical for treatment effectiveness. The time depends on an individual's needs. For most people, the significant improvement is reached at about 3 months in treatment.
