Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment in Maine

Do you need addiction help in Maine? Are you living with alcohol and drug problems and just getting sick and tired of it? Are you worried about someone you care about and what might happen next?

There are many facilities that offer addiction help in Maine. We can help you find the best one for your situation.

What Problems Can Addiction Centers Help You Overcome?

Centers that offer help in Maine can deal with any alcohol or drug problem.

Cocaine is very big in Maine. In fact, nearly 40% of all the drug arrests in Maine involve cocaine. About 33% are with powder cocaine, and more than 37% are with crack cocaine.

Marijuana is the next biggest problem at 24%. You may not think of marijuana as a serious drug problem. But recent research shows that long-term marijuana use can cause brain damage. It also leads to taking other drugs.

Heroin addiction and addiction to methamphetamine are not as big a problem, but they are serious.

If you, or someone in your family has a problem with any drug, we can help you find addiction help.

Not all alcohol and drug addiction treatment is the same. Some work far better than others, and some really don’t work at all. If you choose the wrong facility, the person could be back into drinking or taking drugs shortly after they finish their program.

At Addiction Help Services, we know which alcohol and drug addiction treatment programs work, and which don’t.

We will help you figure out what solution is best for you.

Prescription Drug Addiction and Rehab in Maine

One of the worst drug problems in Maine is with prescription drug addiction and dependency.

Many people get addicted to prescription drugs when they first get them from their doctor. And in Maine, there are a lot of prescriptions written – nearly 2 million per year – in a state that only has a population of 1.3 million.

More than 500,000 of the prescriptions written were for different people – meaning that more than one-third of the people in Maine got a prescription for a drug that might be addictive.

The other 1.5 million prescriptions were refills. Many of these were for some of the most addictive drugs on the market – painkillers like OxyContin and Vicodin, and many were for tranquilizers and sedatives like Valium and Xanax – to name just a few.

What do these numbers mean to you? It’s hard to take some of these drugs for long without getting addicted. So, basically, you can count on there already being a lot of people in Maine who are suffering from OxyContin addiction, Vicodin addiction and addiction to Valium and Xanax.

It also means that all of these drugs sitting in people’s medicine cabinets are available to their kids – and drug help in Maine is needed just as much for kids as for adults.

Alcohol Rehab and Abuse in Maine

Rehab centers in Maine deal with alcohol abuse all the time. In fact, the alcohol problem in Maine is bad – as it is all over the country. If you are a heavy drinker or get into binge drinking, you may need alcohol detox.

Why Hasn’t the Person Gotten Addiction Help on Their Own?

Most of the time, people who are involved in drug abuse or addiction or alcohol abuse can’t really control the situation by themselves.

They might have a bad experience – an accident or injury, or a family upset – and say they are going to stop taking drugs or drinking. And, at the time, they mean it.

But once withdrawal starts and they begin to experience the physical, emotional and mental withdrawal symptoms when they have been without alcohol or drugs for a while, all their promises and good intentions go out the window.

Also, they might be in a situation where there is something in their life that is driving them to drink or drugs.

As long as they’re ‘high’, they feel better about those problems – or they just aren’t that affected by them.

That’s what they’re trying to accomplish by taking the alcohol or drugs in the first place.

If they knew what to do about these problems, they would do it. But, they don’t.

The combination of the physical effects of trying to not take the drug and the problems they’re trying to forget, often prevent them from being able to quit.

It’s hard to deal with a person in that condition, or even understand what they’re going through, if you haven’t been in that position yourself.

Can Maine Addiction Help Centers Help with Prescription Drugs?

Yes, but not all facilities have experience with prescription drugs. It’s important to know which ones do and which don’t so you can choose the right facility.

OxyContin addiction, addiction to other prescription painkillers, Xanax addiction, Clonopin addiction – there are many, many prescription drugs that are addictive and can really get a person into trouble.

If they’re addicted to prescription painkillers – which is very common in Maine and across the country – and they don’t get addiction help, they can eventually wind up on drugs like heroin. Prescription drugs are very expensive when you get them from drug dealers rather than through a prescription, and heroin is very cheap and readily available.

Is someone you care about dealing with prescription drug addiction?

Our experienced counselors will find out what the problem is exactly, how long it’s been a problem and how bad it is. We will then be able to advise you on which facility would be best for you.

We’ll help you find the right alcohol or drug rehab program, help you figure out how to get the person there, and things will start changing.
