  3. What is Drug Addiction SufferingfromDrugAddiction? CallOur 24/7 Helpline (866) 218-7546 Drug addiction is more than a desire or craving for a substance, yet the addiction may start out as such. A drug addiction is when the user has no control over the decision to consume the drug or substance. No matter how much an addict will try, he or she will be unable to beat the addiction alone. Drug addiction is a complex disease which effects the brain and causes harm to the body as well.

  4. Causes & Facts Of Addiction SufferingfromDrugAddiction? CallOur 24/7 Helpline (866) 218-7546 The Behavioral Health Barometer of Colorado found that from 2009 to 2013, around 117,000 Colorado residents 12 years of age and older per year, depended on or abused illicit drugs. Drug addiction is a complex disease. The user will continue to consume the harmful and brain-altering drugs despite knowledge of its damaging effects. Contrary to popular belief that drugs burn, fry and destroy the brain, consumption of drugs and illicit substances actually re-wires the brain.

  5. Symptoms Of Drug Addiction Through drug addiction, the user not only loses control of decisions and harms their body through continued use, but the user will become unable to perform the simplest of tasks without the drug. This is the point of addiction in which a person cannot fathom being in a social environment or completing any task unless the drug is present. At this point, like a bit to a horse, the drug now supercedes and governs the inner compass of the individual. SufferingfromDrugAddiction? CallOur 24/7 Helpline (866) 218-7546

  6. Drug Addiction treatment The National Institute on Drug Abuse – NIDA — found only 2.6 million people out of 23.5 million people aged 12 and older received treatment from a professional treatment facility. In this day and age there are several forms of treatment available for those struggling with drug addiction. The first step is making the decision to seek help. The next step is to find a treatment center that deals with the substance you or the loved one is addicted to and developing holistic treatment specific to the needs of the patient. Forms of treatment can include medication and therapy. (866) 218-7546

  7. Inpatient Treatment Centers Inpatient treatment centers are a good option for those with severe addiction who are in need of supervision. Many find the battle of addiction is especially challenging the first few weeks following detoxification. An inpatient treatment facility will involve the patient staying at a facility and following a monitored schedule day to day. This way, the patient is not surrounded by addiction triggers all at once and can slowly adapt to coping with the transition. Patients will join in activities and therapy, some of which can include group therapy, art, yoga and meditation. Each facility will differ on what therapy is offered for inpatients. The important factor is that the center should create a safe and interactive environment which allows the patient to face the addiction and discover how to live with it.

  8. Outpatient Treatment Outpatient treatment works for patients who can handle balancing home and work life with their recovery. Patients will continue their normal day to day schedule and stay in their own home as opposed to a treatment facility. The patient will still have involvement with a treatment program and attend therapy sessions frequently; this form of treatment gives the patient more freedom as long as they can handle it. For the patients who go through outpatient treatment and relapse, inpatient treatment may be the better option.
