Do I Need Long Term Drug Rehab in Des Moines, Iowa?

What is an addictive or psychoactive drug? An addictive or psychoactive drug is a drug such as heroin, crack cocaine, meth, oxycontin, rohypnol, codeine etc... that acts predominantly upon the central nervous system where it changes brain function, resulting in temporary changes in awareness, feeling, alertness and demeanor. Addictive drugs also alter the personalities of the individuals that use them and these changes in personality and behavior are usually very detrimental and undesirable. When a person begins using an addictive substance they may experience a false perception of euphoria brought on by the substance. When ingested regularly for a prolonged period of time the person will become addicted to the substance. Addiction can cause a horrific nightmare in one's life. Nobody purposefully tries to create this nightmare, known as addiction, on themselves, rather the individual was simply unaware of the negative consequences where they could only identify the pleasure it seemed to bring in the beginning and they figured it would always be like that.

Fortunately there is help for you or your loved one in Des Moines, Iowa suffering with drug or alcohol addiction. A chronic addiction requires a comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation plan. Addiction is an issue that can be resolved but it's not handled overnight. The most effective approach to resolve alcohol and drug addiction today is long term inpatient treatment. Just as no one purposefully tries to develop an addiction to drugs, no one has to continue to be addicted if they receive the professional rehabilitation that they need to resolve the issue.

Getting your loved one the treatment that they need can save their life and recover happiness in the household.

If you have attempted to help an addicted person on your own without professional assistance but have been unsuccessful, here are some of the benefits of getting professional help for a loved one's alcohol and/or drug addiction.

  • Removing them from the environment of their addiction.
  • Separating them from drug dealers and substance abusing friends.
  • If they are in danger because of their addiction they will find safety in a treatment facility.
  • Putting them them into a safe and supportive supervised setting.
  • The turmoil that always goes along with addiction will diminish for everybody once the person goes to the rehab program.
  • The cost of addiction is usually far greater than the price of treatment.
  • The individual will receive 24 hour care including medical services through the detoxification process.
  • The individual will receive the counseling and support that they need to repair their life.
  • They will learn how to accept responsibility for the damage that they have caused to themselves and their loved ones.
  • The person will learn recovery skills and tools that they will need to recover.
  • They will learn who they really are again and regain self worth again.
  • Physiological and emotional counseling provides enduring advantages for long term recovery.
  • They will learn how to prevent cravings and urges and how to overcome them rather than giving in to relapse.
