Inhalant Addiction Treatment
  • Detox Programs
  • This cleansing program is always the first step
    that has to be undertaken by most drug victims.
    This program is accompanied by withdrawal
    symptoms, which vary depending on the type of
    inhalant one has been using. In some cases,
    withdrawal symptoms may not occur. However, when
    they are present, there are some medications that
    can help relieve them.
  • Therapy
  • Therapy is a very important step that occurs
    right after detoxification. There is a need to
    help the patients deal with their cravings and
    abstain even after their treatment is done. There
    are different types of therapy types including
    cognitive behavioural therapy and contingency
    management. The cognitive behavioural therapy is
    mostly used in the treatment Centers to help the
    patients deal with their cravings while the
    contingency management incentivizes positive
    treatment outcomes such as excellent medical
    compliance and e effective abstinence.

Inhalant Addiction Treatment
  • Is The Treatment Necessary?
  • After reflecting on your lifestyle and
    relationship with inhalants, you must decide if
    treatment is right for you. When you realize that
    cravings for the inhalant are affecting your
    personal and professional life, you know that
    treatment is necessary. There are various types
    of inhalant treatments explored below.
  • The Residential Treatment
  • This is where the patients live together as they
    get their treatment. This treatment program is
    basically tailored to enhance support among the
    patients, enabling them to encourage each other
    through the whole process. However, this
    treatment is not only limited to one type of
    addiction.
  • Medically Assisted Program
  • What happens as withdrawal symptoms begin to
    show? The patients are offered drugs to help curb
    them. Inhalants are difficult to treat because
    they are comprised of a diverse range of
    chemicals hence, formulating a drug that can
    help someone deal with all of them becomes an
    issue.

Treatment for Inhalant Addiction
  • The use of inhalants for internal use has been
    proven to be very dangerous in research done with
    animals and humans, proving that inhalant abuse
    is extremely lethal. The persistent abuse of
    inhalants can result in brain and nervous system
    damage. Some of the damage done to the nervous
    system is similar to the effects of certain
    neurological disorders such as multiple
    sclerosis. If an abuser continues to abuse
    inhalants they are putting their heart, lungs,
    liver, and kidneys at severe risk of permanent
    damage. Extended abuse of inhalants is known to
    negatively affect mental cognition, movement,
    eyesight and hearing. The abuse of such toxic
    chemicals as butane, propane, aerosols, can
    result in sudden sniffing deaththis can occur
    in an otherwise healthy young person after even
    their first sniffing session.
  • If you or a loved one is suffering from the
    effects of inhalant abuse, it is imperative that
    treatment starts right away. The treatment for
    an inhalant addict is dependent on the age,
    gender and length of exposure the person has been
    inhaling the chemicals, if there are other drugs
    involved, and if the addict has any of the
    co-occurring disorders present.

Treatment for Inhalant Addiction
  • Treatment for a young inhalant abuser may be as
    an outpatient, in a residential facility, or even
    at a hospital. For abuser who are suffering any
    co-occurring disorders, hospitalization if
    recommended in order to get treatment for these
    health issues. Once the abuser completes the
    required treatment there are further therapies
    that it is recommended they participate in to
    ensure a complete recovery process. These
    therapies and techniques include
  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • 12-step education
  • Instruction on relapse prevention
  • Cognitive and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (CBT
    and DBT)
  • Biofeedback and Neuro feedback
  • Recreational therapy

4 Ways to Deal with Amphetamine Addiction
  • Recognizing the drug use
  • It might be hard to admit that you are really
    addicted and even harder to admit that your
    substance use is out of control. However,
    recognition may be your biggest breakthrough.
    After you admit that you have a problem, you will
    be able to effectively deal with the issue and
    even make positive strides toward quitting. You
    will also be able to realize the toll drug use
    has taken on your life. Acknowledging the problem
    is the first step to helping you start over.
  • Getting Professional Medical Attention
  • Seeking medical advice is the best option for
    approaching your addiction. Talking it out with a
    doctor can help you determine the support you
    need. A doctor can also give you information
    about procedures as well as personalized,
    professional recommendations for best treatment
    centers. With the doctors assistance, you will
    be exposed to different medical options that can
    help you reduce your use of the drug. Moreover,
    you are also able to get psychological support,
    which will help you to view things in a more
    positive manner.

4 Ways to Deal with Amphetamine Addiction
  • Overcoming Initial Withdrawal
  • When you stop using the drug, you are initially
    prone to very serious cravings. You can control
    this though. Ensure that you have control of your
    environment and that you cannot get access to the
    drug. Basically, keep away from all known
    sources, whether it is your friends or even your
    family members. It is also advisable to identify
    people who can help you whenever you experience
    strong cravings. They can be your personal
    therapist, doctor, or some good friends. Keep in
    mind that withdrawal symptoms will occur, so you
    should remain prepared.
  • Maintain the Positive Trend
  • Throughout this period, you might have discovered
    some activities that have a good effect on your
    well-being. These should be some of the things
    that you sustain. Stick to healthy habits and
    ensure you manage your medications accordingly.
    Stay around people that will help you and also
    ensure you hold on to the relationships with your
    counselling group and support group.

Amphetamine Rehab
  • Amphetamines are a man-made stimulant that
    accelerates the central nervous system giving the
    person a feeling of increased energy levels and
    excitement. This boost in energy level also
    gives the person a feeling of confidence which
    increases their ability to focus and gives them
    an overall sense of euphoria.
  • Amphetamines were first created in Germany during
    the late 1800s but werent formally recognized
    for its stimulant benefits until the 1930s when
    it was used to for clearing up nasal congestion.
  • Rehabilitation efforts for an amphetamine addict
    can prove challenging due to the ways their brain
    chemistry has been altered by the chronic use of
    the drug. Relapse is often hard to avoid,
    because of the strong feelings of depression and
    displeasure. It is important for users to
    realize what their triggers are that make them
    want to use, and to adjust their behaviour to
    avoid those triggers. Certain therapies are able
    to do this, therapies such as

10
Amphetamine Rehab
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
  • Family counselling
  • Addiction education
  • Participation in a 12-step program and the
    support of peers
  • Once the person who is suffering from amphetamine
    addiction becomes involved in a treatment program
    that has an established reputation for helping
    people with an addiction to amphetamines they
    will be able to learn, through established
    therapy sessions, how to get past the cravings
    and live without the overwhelming desire to use
    the drug. During rehab they will also have the
    opportunity to discuss their fears and anxieties
    with others who have gone through the same
    feelings.

11
Cocaine Rehab is Important for Recovering Addicts
  • Treatment of cocaine addiction must address
    several factors including the use of other
    associated substances like alcohol and marijuana
    that are often taken with cocaine. A medical
    professional will provide advice on the best
    treatment, which depends on the severity of the
    persons cocaine addiction.
  • A treatment will only be effective if the addict
    is fully into the recovery process. This goes a
    long way in ensuring thorough commitment and
    accountability. It is important to note that
    recovering addicts may relapse and return to
    their old habits. This will most likely happen if
    the addict has no accountability partner or
    family members that urge them to stay on track.
  • When a person relapses, it is our responsibility
    to try and remind them why they chose to get
    treatment in the first place. We should also try
    to understand why they relapsed and what it is
    that is driving them to use cocaine. Putting into
    perspective the benefits of staying clean will go
    a long way in ensuring that the person stays away
    from triggers and avoids relapse in the future.

12
OxyContin Addiction Treatment
  • During detox of the drug, it is recommended that
    the person seek a professional to supervise their
    detox period. Detoxicification is the attempt to
    remove the Oxycodone from the persons body.
    This is usually best done in an inpatient setting
    so that medical professionals can monitor the
    patient and keep them safe and comfortable.
    During this detox period, the medical provider
    may prescribe medication to reduce the negative
    side effects of the process.
  • Once detox is completed, the patient is then
    referred to various treatment options, which can
    include

13
OxyContin Addiction Treatment
  • Residential rehabilitation
  • Outpatient treatment
  • A mental health/or dual diagnosis treatment
  • A residential rehabilitation therapy involves the
    patient living in a setting that involves
    constant round the clock treatment. The length
    of time a patient is in a treatment program can
    vary from several weeks to months. The length is
    dependent upon how severe their addiction is.
  • Outpatient therapy is less intense than the
    residential therapy however, it does require the
    patient to complete counselling and therapy
    sessions to discuss how their recovery process is
    coming along and ways in which the patient can
    maintain their sobriety.

14
Stages of Oxycontin Recovery
  • Withdrawal stage
  • This is always the initial stage of recovery for
    most of the patients. Sadly it is likely
    impossible to prevent the withdrawal symptoms,
    but there are a few ways to prevent them. Some
    people opt to use a cold turkey approach while
    others opt to use the medical approach. For
    instance, when a patient experiences muscle
    pains, they can be offered some non-addictive
    painkillers to ease the pain. Also, they may be
    given some sleep medication after experiencing
    insomnia.
  • Pink Cloud Stage
  • After going through detox program, there is a
    period where the body experiences some feeling of
    relief with no major cravings and withdrawal
    symptoms. This is the Pink Cloud Stage. During
    this stage, the patients believe everything is
    perfect and they tend to feel that nothing can go
    wrong.
  • Back To Reality Stage
  • The patients are then returned to a reality in
    which the temptations and cravings are real. They
    now realize that they have to put in the hard
    work to ensure that they can stay Oxycontin free.
    They also now develop the need to discover some
    more ways to keep themselves off the drugs and
    maintain the good trend. This is the time they
    need to burn some bridges and stay away from
    loved ones who would rather expose them to the
    drug than help them throughout the recovery
    system.

4 ways to successfully undergo drug rehab in
Toronto
  • Get rid of toxic friends
  • You have already made a decision to get clean.
    This is only going to be possible if you
    eliminate friends that you used to engage in
    substance intake with. It is going to be
    impossible if you attend a rehab facility and
    then later hang out with such friends. You will
    easily be lured back into taking drugs.
  • Attend Counselling and Therapy sessions
  • There is a reason why the above sessions are in
    place. Whether you have been scheduled to attend
    a single or group session, you should aim to
    avail yourself. These sessions are usually
    conducted by qualified professional who will
    engage with you on practical ways to help you
    stay clean.
  • Engage your family
  • Your family will always want to see you
    rehabilitated from drug use, no matter how far
    you have gone. They will always understand and
    encourage you as you start your transformation.
    Involving your family will also enable them to
    make proper adjustments for your sake in order
    for you to effectively continue your
    rehabilitation.
  • Attend After rehab Program
  • You are now out of rehab, what next? Though you
    have successfully completed your program, you
    must be sure to attend all the after rehab
    sessions. These sessions are meant to follow up
    on your recovery process and ensure that you are
    adhering to certain rules. Aftercare monitoring
    also ensures that you are committed and constant
    follow up will help you stay on track.
