Drug addiction is a devastating and deteriorating brain disease that should be treated.  It often ruins family relationships, careers, and lives.  Drug addicts should find treatment at a drug rehab center rather than quit on their own. Programs at Drug Rehab Centers Milford can help the addict and loved ones get their lives back on track. Deciding to get sober from illicit and prescription drugs is a big decision, and may be the most important one an individual struggling with drug dependence can take.

Recovery from alcohol or drug dependence may take some time. The length varies depending on a number of elements, such as the nature of dependence and severity of the addiction. Finding the right drug rehab center should be the first priority. The finest drug rehab centers will help the addict get away from the deteriorating environment they used to be in and equip patients with the right tools to start a new life drug-free.  After the initial detox period under medical supervision, patients are welcomed into a new process that will help them become a new, healthy member of society.

Mental Health and Addiction

Many individuals diagnosed with alcohol or substance abuse also suffer from a mental condition. Doctors categorize these patients as those with a dual diagnosis. Having a mental disorder can affect the way patients receive treatment for their addiction.  Professionals usually prefer treating both conditions at the same time.

Dual diagnosis treatment centers treat those struggling with a mental disorder and addiction. Addiction to prescription drugs, illicit drugs or alcohol can affect the individual’s mental health as well. Patients with schizophrenia, depression, and anxiety or personality disorders tend to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol in order to temporarily reduce the symptoms associated with mental disorders. Other drug users or alcoholics suffer from mental disorders because of their chemical dependency.

Signs of drug abuse

Some of the common symptoms of drug abuse can also be exhibited by individuals due to their mental condition. The most common signs of drug abuse are:

  • Unusual behavior
  • Anxiety or angry outbursts
  • Impaired judgment, slurred speech or impaired motor skills
  • Engaging in potentially dangerous activities that could lead to legal issues.
  • Instants of rare euphoria, hyperactivity or irritability
  • Depression
  • Financial hardships
  • Problems with relationships
  • Changes in routine
  • Poor physical appearance or hygiene
  • Eating disorders, which may lead to weight loss or weight gain
  • Blood shot eyes, pupils dilated and unusual  breath

Treatment

Doctors generally look at circumstances surrounding the addiction in order to use the right treatment and administer the appropriate medication.  Some patients might receive treatment for their mental disorders first, while others will receive the treatment for the disorder after they have detoxed. The type of treatment depends on whether the individual suffered the mental condition or substance abuse first.

A variety of therapy is also available to treat addicts and individuals struggling with mental disorders. For example, cognitive-behavioral therapy teaches patients how to adjust their thoughts and behaviors in regard to their condition. Group therapy, on the other hand, teaches patients how to interact with others. Recovering addicts also get to share their experiences and talk to peers diagnosed with the same condition or struggling with the same issues. Behavior management is another form of therapy, which focuses on behavior and actions related to substance abuse.
