Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment in Laredo

Despite several initiatives by NGOs and strict laws by the government, drug and alcohol addiction remain to be one of the fastest growing crisis in the U.S.

Data suggests that about 23.1 million people have an illicit substance abuse problem, out of which 17.9 million people have alcohol addiction problems thats 7% of the total population.

Also, the number of alcoholic liver deaths numbered 15,990; similarly, the number of alcohol induced deaths (excluding accidents) numbered 25,692. Likewise, the number of deaths caused by drug abuse in 2010 was 78,000 which is debatable because several illicit drugs including ecstasy and hallucinogens were not included.

Truth about Drugs and Alcohol:

Drugs and alcohol arent anyones best friends when it comes to dealing with shyness, confidence or anxiety issues. They may provide a temporary solution to the problems, but often times when the effect of these substances wears off, the problems come back, hitting people harder than ever. Drugs and alcohol are expensive. An addict starts spending a lot of money on this alone which could lead him to face many financial issues later on. Along with this, addicts have to face some very severe health issues later on in life. An addict who wishes to recover has to face a lot of withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are very painful, and in some cases harmful.

Brain The Organ Most Affected By Drug and Alcohol Abuse

Each and every harmful substance has a direct impact on the brain. And each substance, depending on how it is abused, will affect the brain in different way. With regular use of the substance, our brain reacts and changes a few of its functionalities and beings to trigger abnormal responses. For instance, drugs cause the brain to increase the levels of dopamine inside it, which causes happy feelings.

Changes such as these can hinder our thinking patterns and cloud our judgments. With every use, the addiction is likely to grow. This results in an increase in tolerance to the substance, and therefore, the individual wants more and more of the drug.

An Overview of Rehabilitation

Depending on whether you go to a drug rehab or a center for alcohol addiction recovery, treatment usually runs the following course. Firstly, it must be remembered that when you sign up for drug and alcohol rehab, you are free to leave any time you wish. You are not imprisoned, and nothing happens against your will.

The next step is detoxification. It should be mentioned that many alcohol and drug rehab centers actually require that you go through detoxification prior to signing up for their program. Detoxification can be drug free, but medications may also be used. Medical experts see great potential in using vaccinations during detox, as they cannot only reduce the euphoria related with drug use, but also help to curb cravings and mitigate withdrawal symptoms.
