      Commonly Asked Questions about Addiction and Treatment


      What does drug addiction do to a person?

      Drug addiction, also known as Substance Use Disorder (SUD), is a complex condition that affects an individual's brain and behavior, leading to an inability to control the use of drugs despite harmful consequences. Drug addiction can impact a person in various ways, including physical, psychological, social, and emotional aspects of their life. Some of the effects of drug addiction include:

      • Physical health problems: Chronic drug use can lead to numerous health issues, ranging from mild to severe. These may include weakened immune system, cardiovascular problems, liver damage, lung diseases, kidney damage, and increased risk of infectious diseases, such as HIV and Hepatitis C.
      • Mental health issues: Drug addiction often co-occurs with mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. Substance use can exacerbate existing mental health conditions or lead to the development of new ones.
      • Cognitive impairment: Prolonged drug use can impair cognitive functions, such as memory, attention, decision-making, and problem-solving skills. This can impact an individual's ability to function effectively in daily life and may result in poor academic or work performance.
      • Emotional instability: Drug addiction can lead to emotional instability, mood swings, and increased irritability, which can strain personal relationships and affect overall well-being.
      • Social isolation: Individuals with drug addiction may withdraw from social activities, hobbies, or relationships, leading to isolation and loneliness. They may also prioritize drug-seeking behaviors over other aspects of their life, further damaging social connections.
      • Financial difficulties: The cost of obtaining drugs, combined with reduced work performance or job loss, can lead to financial strain and potentially result in homelessness or dependence on others for support.
      • Legal problems: Drug addiction may increase the likelihood of engaging in illegal activities, such as theft or drug trafficking, to support drug use. This can lead to arrest, incarceration, or other legal consequences.
      • Increased risk of overdose: Chronic drug use increases the risk of accidental overdose, which can result in severe health complications or death.
      • Family and relationship issues: Drug addiction can strain family relationships and lead to instability within the household, as well as negatively impact the emotional and physical well-being of children in the family.

      How to help someone that is detoxing from opioids?

      Helping someone detoxing from opioids is a delicate process that requires careful attention, support, and understanding. Here are some ways you can assist:

      Encourage Professional Help: Detoxing from opioids should ideally be done under the supervision of healthcare professionals. Encourage them to seek professional help, as this ensures their safety throughout the process and provides them with the best chance for successful recovery.

      Learn About Opioid Withdrawal: Understanding the process of opioid withdrawal can help you be more empathetic and supportive. Symptoms can include anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, and flu-like symptoms such as sweating and diarrhea. Also, be aware of Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS), which can present psychological symptoms like mood swings and depression for weeks or months after the initial detox period.

      Provide Emotional Support: Be patient, understanding, and supportive. Listen to them, be there for them, and reassure them that they're not alone in this process. Avoid shaming or blaming, which can increase feelings of guilt and discourage recovery efforts.

      Support Their Treatment Plan: Help them stick to their treatment plan. This could involve driving them to appointments, ensuring they take prescribed medications, or helping them manage their schedule to accommodate therapy or support group meetings.

      Promote Healthy Habits: Encourage them to eat healthily, exercise, and get enough sleep. These habits can help strengthen their physical health and resilience during detox and recovery.

      Limit Triggers: Help create an environment that minimizes triggers for drug use. This might involve clearing out substances and paraphernalia, or avoiding places or people associated with drug use.

      Join a Support Group: Consider attending a support group for friends and family members of people with substance use disorders, such as Nar-Anon. These groups can offer valuable advice, resources, and support for you as you help your loved one.

      Take Care of Yourself: Supporting someone through detox can be emotionally demanding. Make sure to take care of your own mental and physical health, too. Self-care isn't selfish´┐Ż''it's crucial for you to be able to provide sustained support to your loved one.


      What is a typical day like in an inpatient drug rehab?

      Inpatient drug rehab provides a structured environment for individuals recovering from substance use disorders. The specific details of a typical day can vary between facilities, but most will follow a general schedule that includes therapeutic activities, meals, free time, and sleep. Here's a rough outline of what a day in an inpatient rehab might look like:

      Morning:

      • Wake Up: Residents typically wake up early to start their day. Some facilities may offer morning activities like yoga or meditation to help residents start their day in a calm and mindful way.
      • Breakfast: A healthy meal is provided to start the day. This is also a time for social interaction with other residents.
      • Group Therapy or Counseling: After breakfast, residents often participate in a group therapy session. This could be a general therapy session or a specific type of therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

      Afternoon:

      • Lunch: After morning therapy sessions, residents will have lunch, often followed by a short break.
      • Therapies: The afternoon is typically filled with various therapeutic activities. These could include individual counseling, specialized therapies (like art or music therapy), or educational sessions about addiction and recovery.

      Evening:

      • Dinner: In the evening, residents will have dinner, which, like all meals in rehab, is typically designed to promote overall health and wellness.
      • Evening Group Session: Many rehab centers host an evening group session, which might be a support group, a 12-step meeting, or another form of group therapy.
      • Free Time: After the day's structured activities, residents usually have some free time. They might use this time to relax, read, journal, or socialize with other residents.
      • Bedtime: To ensure adequate rest, lights-out times are typically enforced.

      Throughout the day, residents may also have scheduled times for medication (if applicable), physical exercise, and meeting with their treatment team. The goal of this structured daily routine is to provide a stable, supportive environment that promotes healing and recovery.

      It's important to note that the exact schedule and types of activities will vary between different rehab centers and individual treatment plans. When choosing a rehab center, it can be helpful to ask about the daily schedule and types of therapies offered to ensure it aligns with your needs and preferences.
