Drug addiction is a chronic illness affecting a person's mental state and overall behavior, leading to their inability to control their urges and desire to use illicit drugs or prescription medicine for their self-gratification. In survey data released in 2017, about 19.7 million American adults have battled with substance abuse--38% of the census covering illicit drug use. However, not a lot of people have sought help for substance addiction treatment.

More concerningly, American adults suffer both from drug abuse and mental health, also known as "co-occurring disorders." Thankfully, mental wellness recovery providers, such as Transcend Recovery Community and outpatient treatment center, The Heights Treatment, give a second chance to those suffering from substance addiction with its rehabilitation programs and services.

What Are Drug Addiction Treatments?

There are many addiction treatment options available at present that help with substance use and addiction triggers. These may worsen and lead to serious mental health issues if not given immediate effective treatment.

The main objective of these treatment programs is to help patients cease their substance use dependence and achieve long-term addiction recovery. The hope is for them to successfully transition from their substance use rehab program, eradicate their mental health conditions, and eventually integrate themselves into society as productive citizens.

A rehab program for mental health issues may employ a blended approach and consist of after-care programs and effective addiction recovery therapy to stem withdrawal symptoms from repeated substance use.

These treatment programs that are commonly offered are:

  • Behavioral counseling;
  • Medication;
  • Medical Application;
  • Dual diagnosis treatment; and
  • after-care management.

It is important to understand how substance use and abuse alter one's brain function which may spiral into a worse mental health condition. The patient must understand how to recognize, evade, and live with those substance use triggers, especially post-treatment. They may need the help of family members to fully support them in this crucial phase.

Does Transcend Offer Drug Addiction Treatment And Therapies?

Although Transcend isn't a treatment facility that has specific treatment programs to address an addiction-related mental health condition, it partners closely with The Heights Treatment, a specialist provider that has comprehensive inpatient treatment programs that cover addiction recovery therapies and procedures.

We at Transcend, meanwhile, provide encouragement and support to patients either during or after their treatment program. We focus on fortifying the foundations of recovery while inculcating a culture of belongingness to drastically improve their mental health condition. We also offer activities involving self-care, self-affirmation, spirituality, and essential life skills.

Our supplementary treatment programs employ an integrated approach that involves various activities geared toward self-improvement and acknowledgment while staying in a safe sober living residence. We also work with our patients to help strengthen their relationships with loved ones and family members post-treatment program which is essential to achieving full recovery.

Is Drug Addiction A Disease?

Several American mental health institutes, organizations, and governing agencies, such as the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, classify substance addiction as a disease. It is a long-term and recurring condition of individuals compulsively yearning for drugs. 

As a disease, it acts in a way that an individual's body responds to other life-threatening illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease. Similarly, it disrupts the regular function of an organ in the body--in this case, the brain for addiction. It increases a patient's risk of premature death and can still be treatable to avoid more extensive damage.

It also resembles other lifelong diseases such as hypertension and type-2 diabetes, which are conditions that require continuous supervision.

However, the classification of drug abuse as a disease is not entirely universal. Others might argue otherwise because it is not contagious or transmissible. It also is not in its nature, autoimmune, hereditary, or degenerative. And lastly, it is self-acquired, meaning the condition was formed by the individual himself. 

While there are differing views about substance addiction as a disease, it is essential to note that anyone who suffers from it must seek professional help to recover from their current status.

What Are The Signs Of Drug Addiction?

Substance use and dependence are some of the many mental health issues that plague people and have shattered families altogether. They may come in physical and behavioral changes that people close to a suspected individual may easily notice, such as changes in personality, slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, changes in friends & activities, lack of concern for personal hygiene, and financial problems to name a few.

What Are Treatments For Drug Addiction?

Treatment involving substance addiction may be different for every patient depending on the severity of their condition. 

The first stage of treatment that is key to any suffering individual's recovery is detoxification and medically managed withdrawal. Detoxification rids the body of chemicals and drugs to address the dangerous physiological effects of drug withdrawal.

Detoxification alone cannot treat a recovering patient. Therefore, supplemental therapeutic procedures must be employed as well. Additionally, a formal assessment of the case results in ascertaining the best therapy form for the patient. 

Once detoxification is completed, the patient must then undergo counseling and behavioral therapies. Different treatment types may involve a group or be limited to a one-on-one session, depending on the patient's need and comfort level. 

Some of these therapies include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - transforming the patient's relationship with their addiction and changing their thinking associated with drug use
  • Multidimensional family therapy - created to improve better family relations with a teen or adolescent suffering a drug-related addiction.

Our partner facility, The Heights Treatment, offers programs under outpatient drug rehab and medication management to address these problem areas further.

What Makes Drug Addiction Treatment Effective?

A drug addiction treatment program can only be deemed effective if the patient and their mental health partner or counselor work closely to identify their addiction’s underlying cause. The individual must trust his specialist in whatever treatment will be prescribed to him, be vocal in addressing his concerns, and involve himself throughout the process.

While maintaining sobriety might be difficult for most people, relapse prevention programs ensure that individuals will continue to live a drug-free life, with added support from their peers, family, and friends. Sober companions also help post-treatment individuals avoid potential triggers and influence them to stay on track with their lifestyle changes.
