Substance Abuse Treatment

What is Meth Addiction?

Meth addiction is chronic abuse of methamphetamine, one of the most addictive and hard-to-quit drug in Lorain. Readily available, the crystal meth resembles shiny blue and white rocks, looking almost like shattered glass. The powder of meth is odorless, tastes bitter and can be dissolved in alcohol easily.

Meth is a synthetic/man-made stimulant made in meth labs and classified to be a Schedule II drug by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Being in Schedule II means meth is a drug with high potential to be abused and has the potential to cause severe physical and psychological dependence among its users.

Substance Abuse Programs: How Do I Choose the Best One?

There are many wonderfully effective substance abuse programs throughout the country, but not all of them can meet your individual needs. By calling Affordable Rehab of Lorain , we can assist you in identifying those needs and help you locate a substance abuse treatment program that’s capable of meeting them. Some of the questions you may want to consider when looking for a substance abuse treatment program are:

  • Does it have its own medical detox program?
  • Is it JCAHO accredited?
  • Does its facility provide dual diagnosis treatment?
  • Does its facility provide a variety of addiction treatment programs?
  • Does it provide family treatment?
  • Does it include a relapse prevention program?
  • If you happen to be gay, lesbian or bisexual, is this a "gay-friendly" facility?
  • What credentialing does the staff have?
  • Are the physicians trained in addiction medicine and certified through ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine)?
  • Does it accept health insurance?

Available Substance Abuse Services to Consider

Universally, one of the most important aspects to your rehabilitation is the detox process. Residential treatment centers that offer an on-site detox program present a substantially higher rate of success. Additionally, detox programs that are medically-monitored offer the safest and most comfortable experience.

The next area of concern is with the substance abuse services offered during your rehabilitation. These may be represented by holistic services like yoga, art therapy and meditation or by more traditional methods such as psychological or family therapy and medication, or a combination of both.

Equally important is finding a treatment center that is capable of handling any other secondary health issues you may be living with. These can include additional addictions, eating disorders, dual diagnosis, medical complications and more.

Detox programs are not as effective as other forms of treatments for prescription drug addicts. Large doses of opioid blocking drugs are given to the patient to accelerate the process of withdrawal. Detox diminishes the physical effects of drug addiction, but experts say psychological and social factors are the main reasons an addict goes back to using. Cravings can be hard to resist and most people who go through detox are most likely to relapse when they are struggling with prescription drug abuse.

Other inpatient and outpatient programs exist that are specially designed to treat prescription drug abuse. To locate a facility immediately, contact a rehab center right now.
