As per the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health 21 million Americans in the ages 12 and older are addicted to drugs. The survey also revealed that 1 in 12 Americans required some form of substance abuse treatment. Unfortunately, only 11% of them actually receive a treatment.
It is extremely disheartening to see a loved one consumed by their drug addiction. Drugs severely affect the person’s ability to lead a normal life and excessive and prolonged consumption can also lead to death due to overdose. The thing about drugs is that it can give people a sudden emotional high making them feel very happy. This is an important reason that drives them to become addicted to drugs. It becomes their defence mechanism and escape route.
But the drug addiction has disastrous effects. The drugs alter the person’s brain. The person addicted to drugs can become extremely depressed, suicidal, have a very slow self-esteem or even become too egoistic. Drugs can cause the person to become irritable and easily pick up fights. Addiction of drugs can make the person unable to do any daily work and even stop caring for their loved ones.
Treating a person who is addicted to drugs is not as simple as just stopping the consumption of drugs. Once a person is hooked on to drugs, they are always in desperate need to have the next dose. At Northern Arizona Centre for Addiction we offer a holistic approach to solve the drug problem right from the root.
The 30-60-90 day rehab program which can also be extended if the need arises involves medication, counselling and improving improving nutritional levels to overcome the drug addiction. After the addict stops the intake of drugs, they experience withdrawal symptoms and can go on a relapse. We create a support system for those who finish the program to help them live a drugs-free life.
