Substance Abuse Treatment

Identifying Xanax Addiction

It is not that difficult to notice the effects of Xanax abuse on a persons life. One of the common symptoms is sudden weight loss. You will also experience loss of energy that will force you to skip school/work, thereby affecting your career. Cognitive issues are also developed, making it difficult for you to communicate clearly or make sound judgments.

Some people develop memory impairment, although this usually influences only the short-term memory. People who take the Xanax in large dosages may also experience severe sedation that can last for up to 4 days. Xanax abuse is also harmful because it leads to experimentation and addiction of other drugs as well. Ultimately, addicts develop problems with friends and family, as this vicious cycle slowly eats them alive.

Do not let Xanax addiction get the best of you. Seek help today!

Substance Abuse Help in a Residential Treatment Setting

In the past, substance abuse help was primarily provided on an outpatient basis, often returning mixed results. It was believed that outpatient treatment did not provide most patients with enough structure and therapy.  As a result, patients either relapsed or were eventually transitioned to inpatient hospital care.
Inpatient hospital treatment was helpful, however many of the patients did not require the services of a general hospital. In addition, patients were often not motivated by the hospital environment.

To counteract this problem, experts introduced the emergence of residential programs.  This is a type of inpatient treatment where patients can get high quality substance abuse help in a "real world" residential environment. Patients reside in an apartment-like setting while participating in a comprehensive substance abuse program.

What is Meth Addiction?

Meth addiction is chronic abuse of methamphetamine, one of the most addictive and hard-to-quit drug in Parma. Readily available, the crystal meth resembles shiny blue and white rocks, looking almost like shattered glass. The powder of meth is odorless, tastes bitter and can be dissolved in alcohol easily.

Meth is a synthetic/man-made stimulant made in meth labs and classified to be a Schedule II drug by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Being in Schedule II means meth is a drug with high potential to be abused and has the potential to cause severe physical and psychological dependence among its users.

Kinds of Opiates

There are multiple forms of opiates available in Parma and are primarily extracted from poppies which are prevalent in Middle Eastern and South Asian countries. These include opium, morphine, heroin, codeine and methadone. OxyContin and Dilaudid are other less extreme forms of the drug.

Opium addiction is extremely detrimental to the health of an individual and requires long term treatment. The addict typically has to go through a detoxification process to allow the drug to completely flush out of the bloodstream. Treatments may include opioid replacement which includes the use of medication to reduce the effects of opiates and reduce dependency on them.
