What are Commonly Abused Substances?
Addiction can occur in people who are abusing both legal as well as illegal
substances. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) offers a list
of some of the drugs most commonly abused nationwide.
Examples of drugs on this list that are legal include alcohol,
prescription medications, and marijuana in some states. Examples of illicit drugs on this list
include substances like methamphetamine,
heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, Psilocybin, and PCP.
What Are the Causes of Addiction?
Developing an addiction to any given substance is a lot easier than you
think. Many of our patients even reported that they felt like they were
addicted to a substance since their very first use. This is because of
the chemicals in the human brain that addiction changes.
Below, we have outlined some of the many factors involved in substance
abuse and addiction:
Genetic Predisposition: One factor that can induce addiction in a person is their genetic history.
In fact, many people are predisposed to developing addiction due to the
fact that their parent or grandparent is an alcoholic or drug addict.
Thus, individuals with a genetic predisposition to developing an addiction
will struggle with drug use more frequently than those who don’t
have a genetic predisposition to developing an addiction.
Environment: Another factor that can contribute to whether or not a person develops
an addiction is a person’s environment. For example, if a person
constantly attends parties or events in which people abuse drugs, that
person is going to be desensitized to drug use. Before that person knows
it, he or she will likely start abusing substances.Seeing people in your
household drink or use drugs on a daily basis will also increase your
chances of becoming a drug addict. This is because this, too, desensitizes
you to drug addiction.
Peer Pressure: Peer pressure can also act as a cause for drug addiction treatment. This
is especially the case when people are teenagers and at a point in life
in which their friends have a greater impact on their decision-making
than their parents.
Mental Illness: Mental illness is also a huge reason why many people start abusing substances
to the point of developing an addiction. This is because many people that
suffer from mental illness use drugs to cope with their negative thoughts
and emotions. Oftentimes, people will even use drugs to help them forget
about their thoughts and feelings.
Drug Dependency: Some people develop an addiction to substances because they already suffer
from drug dependency. People that suffer from drug dependency experience
withdrawal symptoms anytime they minimize or discontinue their use of
substances.Thus, many people continue to abuse substances so that they
can avoid feeling the withdrawal symptoms that they would otherwise feel
if they were to stop abusing substances. This continued abuse of substances
after a person already suffers from a drug dependency can cause a person
to develop a full-fledged addiction. Once a person develops an addiction,
he or she must attend addiction rehab to overcome it.
Detoxification is an important step in the safe recovery from drug abuse
and addiction. The best form of detox is medical detox. This is because
medical detox provides physicians and a medical staff that supervises
your drug detox from beginning to end. Without supervision, detox can
be dangerous, as it may lead to many negative physical and mental effects.
Medical detox also provides patients with the opportunity to receive prescription
medications. These prescription medications help patients manage their
withdrawal symptoms if they ever become too severe.
Treatment for Drug Addiction
Drug addiction rehab usually comes in the form of a drug addiction treatment
program. The cornerstone of these programs is therapy, including both
There are various different types of drug addiction treatment programs.
These types vary based on the intensity of the program. For example, inpatient
drug addiction treatment programs are more intense and structured than
outpatient drug addiction treatment programs.
Some common types of drug addiction treatment include:
Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Inpatient addiction treatment programs require that patients live in the
addiction rehab facilities that they’re receiving treatment at.
There are two forms of inpatient addiction treatment. One of the two forms
of inpatient addiction treatment is standard inpatient addiction treatment.
This form of inpatient treatment is the more intense and structured form
of inpatient addiction treatment. Thus, there is less downtime when attending
standard inpatient addiction treatment. The other form of inpatient addiction
treatment is residential treatment.
Standard Inpatient Treatment
Standard inpatient addiction treatment programs supervise and monitor their
patients 24/7. This is because the patients that attend inpatient forms
of addiction treatment have severe addictions and thus need constant supervision
and monitoring to remain sober while in addiction rehab.
Standard inpatient addiction treatment usually lasts anywhere from 30 days
to a year. Most standard inpatient forms of treatment advise that patients
receive treatment for at least 90 days though.
The second form of inpatient addiction treatment is residential treatment.
This form of inpatient addiction treatment is just like the standard form
of inpatient treatment except more casual. Therefore, residential treatment
patients have more alone time to participate in recreational activities
and holistic forms of treatment.
Although residential treatment is more casual than standard inpatient treatment,
it still provides its patients with 24/7 supervision and monitoring. This
is because patients who attend residential treatment still suffer from
severe addictions. Also similar to standard inpatient treatment, residential
treatment lasts anywhere from 30 days to a year. Residential treatment
also requires that patients live at the addiction rehab facilities that
they’re receiving treatment at.
Outpatient Addiction Treatment
For patients whose addictions aren’t severe enough to necessarily
need inpatient treatment, there is outpatient treatment. The key difference
between inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment is that outpatient
treatment doesn’t require patients to live at the addiction rehab
facilities that they’re receiving treatment at. Instead, outpatient
treatment patients get to go back home in between treatment sessions.
There are a few forms of outpatient addiction treatment. The most intense
form of outpatient addiction treatment is
partial hospitalization program treatment. Partial hospitalization program treatment requires patients
to attend addiction rehab five to eight hours a day, five to seven days a week.
The second most intense form of outpatient addiction treatment is
intensive outpatient program treatment. Intensive outpatient program treatment requires that patients
attend addiction rehab for at least a few hours a day, a few days a week.
The least intensive form of outpatient addiction treatment is
standard outpatient treatment. Standard outpatient treatment requires its patients to attend addiction
rehab a couple of hours a day, once or twice a week.
Holistic Addiction Treatment
People that want to receive a more alternative and natural form of addiction
rehab can attend holistic addiction treatment programs. Holistic addiction
treatment programs don’t offer medication-assisted treatment, medical
forms of detox, or even traditional forms of addiction therapy. Instead,
holistic treatment uses alternative addiction treatment and therapy practices
to help patients stop using substances.
Holistic treatment also uses alternative forms of addiction treatment and
therapy to help patients manage withdrawal symptoms and cope with addiction
triggers. Examples of popular holistic addiction treatment methods include
acupuncture, massage therapy, equine therapy, art and music therapy, yoga
and meditation, and exercise.
