Incessant drug cravings, loss of control over drug use, withdrawal symptoms and increased tolerance are all a sign of drug dependence and addiction. Addiction is a chronic and progressive disease that requires drug treatment intervention.
For many who struggle with drug addiction, an inpatient rehabilitation program is often the best choice. This typically includes a medial detox protocol, in which drug dosages are steadily tapered, and cravings are reduced. This type of detox provides round-the-clock medical attention from nurses and board-certified doctors, as well as medication management to mitigate the symptoms of withdrawal.
Once the physical aspect of the addiction is treated, intensive psychotherapy and other alternative rehab treatments will help patients to better understand the underlying causes and issues that accompany their drug use.
Some of the most commonly abused substances include: alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, meth and prescription drugs.
Drug addiction is a complex and often relapsing condition, and each drug of abuse requires a different type of treatment. Our drug treatment specialists understand the intricacies of addiction and know how to address the physical, emotional and psychological issues that accompany the disease.
