      Commonly Asked Questions about Addiction and Treatment

      What are the symptoms of opioid withdrawal?

      Opioid withdrawal can be a challenging process that presents both physical and psychological symptoms. These symptoms can range from mild to severe, depending on factors like the type of opioid used, the duration and intensity of use, individual health status, and genetic factors. Here are common symptoms that might be experienced during opioid withdrawal:

      Physical Symptoms:

      • Muscle aches and pains
      • Restlessness and agitation
      • Sweating
      • Runny nose and teary eyes
      • Excessive yawning
      • Insomnia
      • Goosebumps (hence the term "cold turkey")
      • Abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting
      • Rapid heartbeat
      • High blood pressure

      Psychological Symptoms:

      • Anxiety
      • Depression
      • Irritability
      • Intense cravings for opioids

      These symptoms can begin as early as a few hours after the last dose of the opioid and typically peak within 72 hours, though they may persist for a week or more. Post-acute withdrawal symptoms, which are primarily psychological, can continue for weeks or even months.

      It's important to note that while opioid withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable, it is generally not life-threatening. However, complications like severe dehydration due to vomiting and diarrhea can occur, which is why medical supervision is recommended during the withdrawal process. Furthermore, the risk of relapse is high during withdrawal, and using opioids again after a period of abstinence can lead to a potentially fatal overdose, as tolerance may have decreased.

      Suicide risks from drug abuse among lgbtq+ youth

      Substance abuse significantly increases the risk of suicide, particularly among vulnerable populations such as LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and others) youth. This heightened risk stems from a combination of factors associated with both substance abuse and the unique challenges faced by LGBTQ+ youth. Here's a closer look at these factors:

      Mental Health Disorders: Substance abuse often co-occurs with mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, which are known risk factors for suicide. LGBTQ+ youth experience these mental health conditions at higher rates than their heterosexual and cisgender peers, partially due to the minority stress they face.

      Minority Stress: Minority stress refers to the chronic stress experienced by marginalized groups, including LGBTQ+ individuals. It can include experiences such as discrimination, stigma, bullying, and family rejection, which can increase feelings of hopelessness and contribute to both substance use and suicidal ideation.

      Substance Use and Suicidal Behavior: Substance use can lead to increased impulsivity, decreased inhibition, and intensified feelings of despair, making a person more likely to attempt suicide. It can also exacerbate feelings of isolation and hopelessness, further increasing the risk.

      Social Isolation: Many LGBTQ+ youth feel socially isolated, either because they are not out to their peers or because they face rejection after coming out. This isolation can lead to increased substance use and a higher risk of suicide.

      Family Rejection: Family rejection related to an individual's sexual orientation or gender identity can lead to increased substance use and heightened suicide risk. LGBTQ+ youth who do not receive support from their families are particularly vulnerable.

      Lack of Access to Mental Health Services: Many LGBTQ+ youth struggle to access mental health and substance use treatment services, which can help manage risk factors for suicide. Barriers to access can include lack of insurance, stigma, and a shortage of providers who offer LGBTQ+-inclusive care.

      Intersectionality: LGBTQ+ youth who belong to other marginalized groups (e.g., racial/ethnic minorities) often face additional layers of discrimination and stress, which can further increase their risk of substance abuse and suicide.

      Efforts to prevent suicide among LGBTQ+ youth include providing access to culturally competent mental health and substance use treatment, fostering supportive environments in schools and communities, and advocating for policies that protect LGBTQ+ youth from discrimination and harassment. It's also crucial to provide support for families of LGBTQ+ youth, as family acceptance has been shown to protect against suicide risk.

      How do I confront someone about their drug addiction?

      Confronting someone about their drug addiction is a delicate task, requiring a compassionate, non-judgmental approach. It's crucial to express your concerns without inciting defensiveness. Here are some steps to guide you through this process:

      1. Educate Yourself: First, understand that addiction is a chronic brain disease, not a moral failing or a choice. Learn about the specific drugs your loved one is using, the signs of addiction, and potential treatment options. This knowledge will help you approach the conversation with empathy and provide credible information.
      2. Plan the Conversation: Choose a calm, private, and neutral setting to discuss your concerns. Ensure the person is sober and in a clear state of mind. It might be helpful to have another concerned friend or family member present, but avoid making the person feel cornered.
      3. Use "I" Statements: Frame your concerns in a way that focuses on your feelings and observations rather than casting blame. For example, "I have noticed that you've been missing work frequently and I'm worried," instead of, "You're ruining your life."
      4. Be Honest and Specific: Explain your concerns and the behaviors you've observed. Use specific instances and concrete examples when possible, but avoid sounding accusatory.
      5. Express Love and Concern: Make it clear that your intention comes from a place of love and concern. The goal is not to attack or criticize them, but to show that you care about their well-being.
      6. Listen: Allow them to share their feelings and thoughts without interruption. This is not just about you expressing your concerns but also about understanding their perspective.
      7. Avoid Arguing: The person may react defensively or deny the problem. While this can be frustrating, try to avoid arguments. Keep your focus on expressing your concern and encouraging them to get help.
      8. Suggest Professional Help: Let them know there are professional resources available for addiction, such as therapists, counselors, and rehabilitation centers. Encourage them to seek professional help, emphasizing that there is no shame in doing so.
      9. Consult a Professional: If you're unsure about how to approach the situation or if previous attempts have been unsuccessful, consider consulting a professional interventionist.
