What are the types of drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs?
Addiction can ruin the lives both of the addicted person and that of the ones around him. The ultimate goal of all drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs is to free the person from the grips of addiction and enable them to live a drug-free life. Depending on the substance and level of abuse, one needs to find the appropriate level of care. The immediate goal is to reduce the drug use and start improving the ability to function in life with real life skills. There are many types of drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs:
Outpatient treatment time varies – generally used as a first attempt to help, but unfortunately it often needs to be repeated and sometimes fails all together.
Short-term methods are generally 30 days – include residential therapy and drug-free outpatient therapy.
Longer term treatment – takes anywhere from 4 to 6 months and may include the social education model of rehabilitation and regular meetings after completion of rehabilitation.
We will help you find a program that best fits your individual needs.

What are the signs of addiction?
How can you tell if someone else is addicted? Are there signs of addiction that you can be aware of? What is the difference between “addicted” and “dependent”?
The word “Addiction” is commonly used whenever someone “has to have it” but the reasons behind why someone “has to have it” is the difference between Dependence and actual Addiction.
How does someone overcome addiction?
No one plans to become addicted. The reason for any addiction usually starts as the “solution” to a problem. Whether it’s relationship problems, job problems, money problems, feeling unhappy about yourself, or whatever you felt was a problem in your life, you now find that the “solution” you believed would handle it, now has control over YOU.
Why Are So Many People Suffering from Prescription Drug Addiction?
Although people have been getting addicted to prescription drugs for years, it didn’t start becoming a huge epidemic until the release of OxyContin – which the manufacturers (Purdue Pharma) said was less addictive than Percocet, Percodan, and the other painkillers currently on the market and regularly prescribed. The company lied, and paid $634 million in fines when they were sued. But it was too late to stop the OxyContin addiction and it took the country by storm.

How can I help an addict?

You will not be able to help by dismissing their reasons of justifications for using.

What is Intervention and how does it work?
When reason has failed and explanations and excuses are not cutting it anymore, it is time to call for assistance. An intervention is often necessary when the addict just cannot see the reality and effects of his or her actions. Don’t wait for your loved one to hit rock-bottom when it may be too late. An ethical, personalized intervention works with the person to get their willingness up and interest established to get treatment – not to force them.
