Drug Addiction

Resurgence Behavioral Health offers people the chance to overcome drug addiction through a comprehensive and thorough drug addiction rehabilitation program. People tend to avoid seeking help for their drug addictions for many reasons. They often think they don’t have a problem with drug use, or they are afraid of the stigma that is attached to being a drug user. It is important that you do not let those thoughts prevent you from seeking the help you need. Drug addiction can ruin your life and the life of your loved ones, and the sooner you seek treatment to help yourself, the sooner you can get on with your life and start living the life you deserve. When you work with Resurgence Behavioral Health, you’ll be working with some of the best addiction treatment specialists in the country, and we take pride in helping people get well.

Is My Addiction Bad Enough to Seek Professional Help?

Sometimes people are unsure about seeking help for their drug addiction because they think it is not “bad enough.” It can be difficult to admit that you have a problem, or maybe you genuinely believe you do not have a drug addiction, which can delay the process of seeking help. In order to help you understand your level of dependency, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you ever lose control while using drugs?
  • Have you thought about quitting drug use but don’t know how?
  • Do you spend a lot of time trying to track down drugs?
  • Do you find yourself struggling with cravings when you aren’t using drugs?
  • Are you experiencing problems with your relationships because of drug use?
  • Do you feel a lack of responsibility or exhibit a lack of responsibility in your life?
  • Have you lost interest in things that used to be enjoyable to you?
  • Have you had to increase the amount of the drug you use to get the same feelings?
  • Do you experience symptoms of withdrawal when you aren’t using drugs such as cramps, sweating, irritability, and nausea?
  • Do you find yourself going into dangerous situations to get access to drugs?
  • Have you lost your job or are in danger of losing your job because of drug use?

If you find yourself answering yes to one or more of these questions, you might need to consider that your drug addiction is more real than you previously thought. When you realize your drug addiction is severe enough to seek treatment you need to prepare yourself for treatment.

How do I Prepare for Dealing with My Drug Addiction Through Rehab?

When you have decided to seek help from Resurgence Behavioral Health for your drug addiction, there are a number of things you may want to do in order to prepare for your treatment regimen. These include speaking to your family and employer about having to put your life on hold for a little while you seek the treatment that can help you get well. It can be overwhelming to think about giving up aspects of your life for a while, but it is important that you commit yourself entirely to a drug addiction rehabilitation program in order to get the most out of it. You should also ensure that you have made arrangements for someone to take over your bill payments, look after any pets you have, or take care of your home while you are away. While it may be tempting to take a lot of your belongings with you to rehab, it is important that you only bring what you need. Some people come into drug rehab with just the clothes on their back because they feel so strongly about needing a fresh start. Take what you need and leave the rest at home. This can help you feel less overwhelmed about having to prepare to come to a rehab program.

What is Involved in Rehab Programs?

The purpose of a drug addiction program is to help you start to focus your life right away. A typical day in a rehab program will start with a healthy breakfast and a morning meeting, either with your counselor, social worker or case manager. You may have meetings by yourself or with a group. The afternoons are spent in more meetings and therapy sessions, which might include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy or special sessions to deal with your particular type of drug addiction.

Sometimes, guest speakers will tell you about their experiences getting sober and clean, and this can really help people relate to the program. Resurgence Behavioral Health tailors treatment programs to the needs of the patient. So while the bulk of treatment is the same for most people, particular treatment is offered based on your needs so that you get the most out of your
program.

How Long Does the Treatment of Drug Addiction Take?

This is a tough question to answer because every person who comes to Resurgence Behavioral Everyone’s health is a unique situation, and many factors come into play when it comes to beating addiction. There are a number of standard rehabilitation treatment programs including 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day drug addiction programs, but whether or not a person is successful in those time frames is up to them. When you work with the dedicated and professional team at Resurgence, we will help you decide which type of program is right for you and your needs. The success of the treatment plan rests on the dedication of the individual coming into rehab. While we work diligently to help people overcome their addictions, people need to want to get sober and clean.

What Medications Are Used To Treat Drug Addiction?

When it comes to treating drug addiction, a common approach is to help people wean off of the “harder” drugs with what are seen as less potent medicines. There are a number of medications that are used to help patients deal with the pain and discomfort associated with withdrawal, and they can ease the symptoms of cravings as well.

During the withdrawal stage, which is typically called the detoxification stage, the body starts to rid itself of the toxins related to the drug use. This can cause people a great deal of discomfort and physical pain including anxiety, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, sweating, and seizures. In order to help people combat these symptoms, the medical staff at Resurgence may prescribe drugs that reduce anxiety and irritability, such as Benzodiazepines. They may also prescribe antidepressants such as Zoloft and Prozac, and they may prescribe Clonidine which can help to reduce sweating, cramps, and anxiety associated with withdrawal. Other drugs such as Methadone are often prescribed to help people overcome
Methamphetamine addiction as well.

What is Life Like After Treatment?

Going into a treatment plan offered by Resurgence means dedicating yourself to getting clean and sober, but that doesn’t mean that you will not need to work to stay that way when you leave the program. It is up to each individual patient to make the commitment to stay away from drugs and to continue to follow aftercare suggestions and guidelines to maintain a successful sobriety. There are a number of options available to people who have completed a rehab program including ongoing therapy sessions, group therapy, counseling, support groups, 12-step programs, check ups with your own doctor, and more.
