      Commonly Asked Questions about Addiction and Treatment

      How does a person become addicted to drugs and alcohol?

      Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a complex process involving a combination of genetic, environmental, psychological, and social factors. While not everyone who uses drugs or alcohol will become addicted, certain factors can increase an individual's vulnerability to addiction. Some key factors contributing to addiction include:

      • Genetic predisposition: Genetics play a significant role in addiction, accounting for an estimated 40-60% of an individual's vulnerability. People with a family history of addiction may be more susceptible to developing a substance use disorder.
      • Environmental influences: A person's environment can significantly impact their likelihood of developing an addiction. Factors such as exposure to drugs or alcohol, peer pressure, low socioeconomic status, and lack of parental supervision can contribute to substance use and potential addiction.
      • Early initiation: Research indicates that individuals who begin using drugs or alcohol at an early age are at a higher risk of developing addiction later in life. Early exposure to substances can disrupt normal brain development, making it more challenging to resist addictive behaviors.
      • Psychological factors: Mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, or trauma-related disorders, can increase the risk of addiction. Individuals may turn to drugs or alcohol as a coping mechanism for managing emotional distress, which can lead to dependence and addiction.
      • Social factors: Social isolation, lack of support networks, or unhealthy relationships can contribute to addiction. Individuals may use drugs or alcohol to fill a void or establish connections with others, increasing their risk of developing a substance use disorder.
      • Chronic use: Repeated exposure to drugs or alcohol can lead to physiological changes in the brain's reward and pleasure centers. Over time, these changes can result in the development of tolerance, dependence, and ultimately addiction.
      • Route of administration: The method by which a substance is consumed can impact the likelihood of addiction. Faster-acting routes of administration, such as injecting, smoking, or snorting, can lead to a more rapid onset of pleasurable effects, increasing the risk of addiction.

      Can I go cold turkey to stop abusing opioids?

      While going "cold turkey," or suddenly stopping the use of opioids, might seem like a fast way to begin recovery, it's generally not recommended due to the severity of withdrawal symptoms and potential health risks.

      Opioid withdrawal can be intensely uncomfortable and, in some cases, hazardous. Symptoms can include severe cravings, restlessness, muscle and bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, cold flashes, and involuntary leg movements. In severe cases, withdrawal can lead to serious dehydration or electrolyte imbalances.

      Furthermore, abruptly stopping opioid use can significantly increase the risk of relapse. The discomfort of withdrawal symptoms may make it more difficult to stay abstinent, and an individual may be tempted to use again just to relieve these symptoms. If a person relapses and takes the same dose they were previously accustomed to, the risk of overdose is high because the body's tolerance to the substance has decreased.

      For these reasons, opioid withdrawal should ideally be managed under the supervision of healthcare professionals. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which includes medications like methadone, buprenorphine (Suboxone), and naltrexone, can be used to help reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings. These medications work by acting on the same brain receptors targeted by opioids, but they do so in a safer manner that helps to manage withdrawal and reduce the risk of relapse.

      In addition to MAT, counseling and behavioral therapies are typically part of a comprehensive treatment program for opioid use disorder. These approaches can help individuals develop the skills and strategies needed to maintain recovery in the long term.

      What is the purpose of drugs such as methadone, suboxone and subutex in the recovery process?

      Methadone, Suboxone (a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone), and Subutex (buprenorphine) are medications used in Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorders. Their primary purpose in the recovery process is to help manage withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings, facilitating a safer, more comfortable transition to abstinence or long-term management of the disorder. Here's a more detailed look at how each of these medications function:

      Methadone: Methadone is a long-acting opioid agonist, which means it activates the same receptors in the brain that other opioids like heroin, morphine, or prescription painkillers do. However, it does so more slowly and for a longer duration, without causing the intense euphoria associated with misuse of those drugs. This helps to mitigate withdrawal symptoms and cravings, enabling individuals to function more normally in daily life.

      Suboxone: Suboxone contains two active ingredients: buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist, meaning it activates the opioid receptors in the brain, but to a lesser extent than full agonists like heroin or methadone. This can help manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms without producing the high associated with opioid misuse. Naloxone is an opioid antagonist, meaning it blocks the effects of opioids. It's included in Suboxone to discourage misuse of the medication; if someone tries to inject Suboxone, the naloxone will trigger withdrawal symptoms.

      Subutex: Subutex is the brand name for buprenorphine alone. Like in Suboxone, buprenorphine in Subutex serves to lessen withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. It is typically used in the initial stages of treatment, while Suboxone is more commonly used for maintenance.

      These medications are typically used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that also includes counseling and behavioral therapies. It's important to note that while these medications can be highly effective in supporting recovery, they should be used under the guidance of a healthcare provider due to the risk of misuse and potential side effects. Each individual's treatment plan should be tailored to their unique needs and circumstances to ensure the best possible outcomes.
