Drug Addiction Treatment

Drug Addiction Treatment

Numerous stages compose the journey into and through drug or narcotic addiction treatment, most notably the first stage of admitting that you have a problem and need to take significant action to heal.

This may sound a little obvious and perhaps even a cliche, but it is the only place to begin, as it permits the individual to begin looking for their solutions when it comes to drug addiction treatment. What surprises everyone else the most, is the obvious denial they can see in their loved ones, and just how significant their drug use is negatively affecting their quality of life. So, the second stage after admitting to yourself that there is a problem is finding the desire to change – to recover with a dedicated drug addiction treatment.

What Is Drug Addiction?

Drug addiction is a chronic disease characterized by compulsive, or uncontrollable, drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences and changes in the brain, which can be long-lasting. These changes in the brain can lead to harmful behaviours seen in people who use drugs. Drug addiction is also a relapsing disease. Relapse is the return to drug use after an attempt to stop.

The path to drug addiction begins with the voluntary act of taking drugs. But over time, a person’s ability to choose not to do so becomes compromised. Seeking and taking the drug becomes compulsive. This is mostly due to the effects of long-term drug exposure on brain function. Addiction affects parts of the brain involved in reward and motivation, learning and memory, and control over behaviour.

Addiction is a disease that affects both the brain and behaviour.

What Drugs Lead To Addiction?

While these drugs are very different from each other, they all strongly activate the addiction centre of the brain. That is what makes these substances habit-forming, while others are not when we refer to drug addiction treatment. 

  • Alcohol
  • Club drugs, like GHB, ketamine, MDMA (ecstasy/molly), flunitrazepam (Rohypnol®)
  • Stimulants, such as cocaine (including crack) and methamphetamine (meth)
  • Hallucinogens, including ayahuasca, D-lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), peyote (mescaline), psilocybin (magic mushrooms), phencyclidine (PCP) and DMT
  • Inhalants, including solvents, aerosol sprays, gases and nitrites (poppers)
  • Marijuana
  • Opioid painkillers such as heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine and morphine
  • Prescription drugs and cold medicines
    Sedatives, hypnotics and anxiolytics (anti-anxiety medications)
  • Steroids (anabolic)
  • Synthetic cannabinoids (K2 or Spice)
  • Synthetic cathinone (bath salts).
  • Tobacco/nicotine and electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes or vaping)

What Are Symptoms Of Substance Abuse Disorder?

Drug abuse comes with a variety of signs and symptoms. Oftentimes, “functional drug addicts” may be able to hide or minimize these signs for some time; however, over time, it generally becomes harder and harder to hide the issue.

  • Bloodshot eyes and looking tired
  • Changes in appetite, usually eating less
  • Changes in physical appearances, such as having a poor complexion or looking ungroomed
  • Craving drugs
  • Difficulty completing tasks at work, school or home
  • Engaging in risky behaviours, despite knowing negative consequences (such as driving while impaired or having unprotected sex)
  • Inability to reduce or control drug use
  • Issues with money
  • Weight loss
