      Commonly Asked Questions about Addiction and Treatment

      What is drug addiction commonly called in the mental health fields?

      In the mental health field, drug addiction is commonly referred to as a "Substance Use Disorder" (SUD). This term is used in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), which is the standard classification of mental disorders used by mental health professionals in the United States.

      A Substance Use Disorder is defined as a pattern of behaviors characterized by an inability to control or cut down on use, spending a lot of time obtaining the substance, craving the substance, failing to fulfill obligations at work, school, or home due to substance use, and continuing to use the substance despite knowing it's causing physical or psychological harm.

      Substance Use Disorders can be further categorized based on the specific substance involved, such as Alcohol Use Disorder, Opioid Use Disorder, Cannabis Use Disorder, and so forth. The severity of the disorder is also assessed (mild, moderate, or severe) based on the number of diagnostic criteria met by an individual.

      It's worth noting that this terminology emphasizes the understanding of drug addiction as a medical disorder, rather than a moral failing or a matter of willpower. This shift in language is part of a larger effort to reduce stigma and promote a more compassionate, effective approach to treatment.

      How do I know if a long term drug rehab is right for me?

      Deciding on the right form of treatment for drug addiction is a highly personal decision, and it depends on a variety of factors. Here are some key considerations to help you determine if long-term drug rehab might be the right choice for you:

      • Severity and Duration of Addiction: If you've been struggling with addiction for a long time, or if your substance use is severe, long-term rehab might be the most effective option. This is because it provides a more extended period of structured support and therapy, which can be beneficial in breaking longstanding patterns of substance use.
      • Previous Treatment Attempts: If you've attempted shorter treatment programs in the past and haven't been successful in maintaining sobriety, a longer-term program could be more beneficial.
      • Co-occurring Disorders: If you're dealing with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders �'' such as addiction along with depression, anxiety, or another mental health condition �'' a long-term rehab program can provide the comprehensive care needed to address both issues concurrently.
      • Support at Home: If your home environment is not conducive to recovery �'' for instance, if there are other substance users in the home, or if it's a high-stress environment �'' a long-term rehab facility can provide a safer, more supportive environment for recovery.
      • Physical Dependence: If you've developed a physical dependence on a substance, particularly if withdrawal symptoms are severe or potentially dangerous, a long-term rehab program can provide the medical supervision necessary to ensure a safe detoxification process.
      • Desire for a Comprehensive Approach: Long-term rehab programs typically offer a comprehensive approach to recovery, including medical care, therapy, skill-building, and sometimes vocational training. If you're seeking a program that addresses multiple aspects of recovery, long-term rehab might be a good fit.

      Remember, this decision should be made in consultation with healthcare professionals, such as a primary care physician, a psychiatrist, or an addiction specialist. They can provide an assessment of your situation and offer professional recommendations based on your specific needs and circumstances.

      How does drug addiction affect the family unit?

      Drug addiction can have far-reaching consequences not only for the individual struggling with substance use, but also for their family unit. Family members may experience various emotional, social, and financial challenges as a result of a loved one's addiction. Some of the ways drug addiction can impact the family unit include:

      • Emotional strain: Family members may experience a range of emotions, such as fear, anger, frustration, guilt, and sadness, as they grapple with their loved one's addiction. These emotions can be overwhelming and may lead to mental health issues, such as anxiety or depression, among family members.
      • Family dynamics: Drug addiction can alter family dynamics, leading to increased conflict, mistrust, and communication breakdowns. This may result in a dysfunctional family environment and strained relationships among family members.
      • Role changes: Family members may be forced to take on new roles to compensate for the challenges brought on by the addiction. For example, a spouse or older child may assume additional responsibilities for managing the household, providing financial support, or caring for younger siblings.
      • Neglect of responsibilities: The individual struggling with addiction may neglect their responsibilities as a parent, spouse, or sibling, leaving other family members to bear the burden of these responsibilities.
      • Financial strain: The costs associated with obtaining drugs and potential job loss due to addiction can place a significant financial burden on the family. This may result in debt, inability to meet basic needs, or even homelessness.
      • Legal issues: Family members may face legal problems as a result of their loved one's drug-related activities, such as theft or drug possession. Legal issues can create additional financial strain and emotional stress for the family.
      • Safety concerns: Drug addiction can expose family members to unsafe situations, such as violence, drug-related criminal activities, or the presence of dangerous substances within the home.
      • Impact on children: Children in families affected by drug addiction may experience emotional, behavioral, and developmental challenges. They may be at greater risk for academic difficulties, mental health disorders, and substance abuse themselves later in life.
      • Social isolation: Family members may become socially isolated due to stigma, shame, or fear associated with their loved one's addiction. This can lead to a loss of support networks and further emotional strain.
