What are the drug problems in Rhode Island?
In Rhode Island, addiction help is needed for cocaine more than any other drug. Cocaine is very easy to get in Rhode Island and is very pure. It has become the drug of choice. Fortunately, treatment for cocaine addiction is also readily available.
Heroin is also a major problem in Rhode Island. Again, it’s quite pure – which means it’s very strong – and you can buy it in nearly every city and town in the state. More and more people are dying in Rhode Island from heroin overdoses. Sometimes it’s also mixed with fentanyl – a prescription drug – which makes it even stronger and increases the risk of overdose even more.
Prescription drug addiction is also a big problem in Rhode Island. Addiction facilities have to deal with OxyContin addiction more than any other prescription drug. People often get addicted to it when their doctor gives them the pills for pain relief after an illness, injury or surgery, but it’s also taken by people who have just heard you can get high with it. It’s very addictive and very dangerous – deaths from overdoses of OxyContin and other similar drugs is getting more and more common.
Because OxyContin and other prescription drugs are so expensive when buying them without insurance, people who need OxyContin often turn to heroin – which costs much less.

Marijuana is also readily available and is smoked throughout the state. Marijuana used to be considered fairly harmless, but the type being grown now is stronger as it contains greater amounts of the active ingredient – THC. THC is also the chemical in marijuana that can cause psychosis. In Rhode Island, addiction help for marijuana is highly recommended because it’s becoming increasingly more dangerous.
Methamphetamine is one drug that is not very common in Rhode Island, although there are some communities where it’s very popular – especially ‘crystal meth.’ Methamphetamine in all forms can deteriorate the body very quickly, and really affects the mind and emotions. It doesn’t take long for someone on meth to be practically unrecognizable.
The use of ‘club drugs’ – called that because they are usually taken at parties, clubs, and so on – like Ecstasy (MDMA), Ketamine and GHB are on the rise all over Rhode Island.
Alcohol is also a big problem in Rhode Island – as it is in every state in the U.S.

Can Addiction Help Services Help with Any Drug Problem?
Yes, although not all facilities are experienced with every type of drug.
Some are more experienced with street drugs like cocaine, heroin and meth, while others are more used to working with alcohol abuse or addiction.
Also, some don’t have much experience with prescription drugs.
Getting off prescription drugs can be especially dangerous – which is why doctors often tell their patients not to try to stop taking drugs on their own, or not to stop taking their medication suddenly. In fact, the withdrawal symptoms of prescription drugs can be medically dangerous.
Which prescription drugs do people usually get addicted to?
and more. Some prescription drugs are more addictive than others, so you can find people addicted to all kinds of opiates, benzodiazepines, sedatives, tranquilizers, anti-anxiety drugs – addiction help centers have seen just about everything.

How Long Does An Addiction Help Program Take?
Although it varies from person to person, you should count on 3 to 6 months.
There are shorter programs – some last just long enough for withdrawal, others are 30 days or so.
But these shorter term programs don’t have the same success rate as the ones that last for 3 to 6 months.
Why? Because addiction doesn’t happen overnight. Nor do the problems that make a person want to drink enough alcohol to become an alcoholic or take enough drugs to become an addict.
That’s a pretty serious condition to be in. And no one really wants it.
So, why are they doing it?
That’s exactly the right question to ask and, without the answers, the person’s chances of recovery are low. If they really want to change their lives, they have to get answers to that question, and they have to figure out how to change the things about their lives that are driving them to drink or drugs.
We’ve helped thousands do exactly that.

Things CAN change. And life can be even better than it was before addiction.
