A short term drug treatment program is most appropriate for people with a short history of abuse or abuser's that desire to quit using but are having some difficulty doing so. When you use alcohol or drugs that are habit forming even for a brief duration of time you can become addicted. Drug addiction exposes itself when you decide you are going to stop using the substance but you are struggling because of the physical and/or psychological withdrawal symptoms. If you use a habit forming drug such as crystal meth cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, ambien, codeine or any other potentially addictive drugs for even a short duration of time you may have a hard time stopping on your own without help. If this is the case, a short term drug and alcohol rehab program in Baton Rouge could be the appropriate choice.
When you stop using addictive drugs cold turkey you may experience what are known as withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms will bring about both psychological and physical discomforts such as weakness, shakiness, clammy skin, craving, feeling cold, sweating, watery eyes, agitation, irritability, excitability, restlessness, delirium, hallucinations, depression, severe anxiety, paranoia and more. Withdrawal symptoms can bring about compulsions to keep using the substance to ease the symptoms despite your intent to stop taking the drug. If this describes the situation that you find yourself in, you could receive effective help from a short term drug rehab.
