If you or someone you know is suffering from drug or alcohol abuse, then an addiction treatment program may be necessary to help you. Addiction treatment in Ohio helps thousands of people who don't know how to stop abusing drugs and alcohol. Often a dual diagnosis is the important factor in identifying the cause of the addiction. This is necessary when someone is using drugs or alcohol to help cope with a mental health issue such as depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder, or when a drug addiction spawns additional mental health disorders that must be treated separately.
No one knows what is the exact cause of drug use or abuse, but at least half of those who suffer from addiction have depression, attention deficit disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, or another mental health problem. Often peer pressure from friends or growing up around rampant drug use can lead to drug addiction. Drug addicts in Ohio are commonly influenced by stress, financial problems, and a widespread social acceptance of drug and alcohol use.
Some of the more commonly abused drugs in Ohio that often require addiction treatment are:
Opiates and narcotics such as Oxycontin, Dilaudid, heroin, or codeine. These powerful painkillers cause feelings of drowsiness and euphoria.
Stimulants such as Cocaine and methamphetamine. These drugs have a stimulating effect and people start needing larger doses of the drug in order to feel the same effect.
Depressants such as alcohol, barbiturates, Valium, and Xanax. Used to treat mood disorders and reduce feelings of anxiety and stress, these artificial emotional states quickly become hard to live without.
Hallucinogens such as LSD, mescaline, psilocybin mushrooms and PCP (angel dust). These drugs can cause people to hallucinate and can lead to chronic mental health problems, cognitive impairments, and psychological dependence.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is the active ingredient found in marijuana. THC can increase heart rate, reduce inhibitions, and can cause short term memory loss. Long term use can create physical and mental health problems.
Many people, including countless thousands in Ohio, think they can overcome their addiction treatment by themselves. Quitting cold turkey may work for some but most people will begin using again without the support of family, friends, and professional therapists and counselors. Addiction treatment targets the physical need to use, but more importantly, discovers the underlying emotional issues that feed a drug habit. Learning why a person started using drugs in the first place is often the most important component to returning to an addiction-free lifestyle.
Addiction treatment can take many different paths and there are no simple solutions. First you have to call one of our professional counselors and ask how to begin the road back to recovery. Our staff, some of whom are recovering addicts, know exactly what you're going through, both physically and emotionally. You should ask about the length of time a program may take, what continued care programs are available after rehabilitation is completed, the costs involved, the rate of success attributed to our program, and the professional certification of our physicians, nurses, therapists and counselors. Now is the time to make that first step toward becoming whole again.
