Drug abuse and drug addiction, though medically different, are both damaging to individuals and their families. Drug abuse can lead to many similar short-term problems as addiction. We can help by providing you with comprehensive, integrated treatment with American Addiction Centers. Call us now at 800-890-1956.
The annual cost of drug abuse in the United States is staggering. The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse found federal, state and local governments spend billions every year to address the consequences of addiction, with much of the money going to health care costs and processing individuals through the criminal legal system.
Drug abuse doesn’t necessarily mean drug addiction, as the term drug abuse includes anyone who uses an illegal or prescribed drug in a way it was not intended, regardless of whether or not they’re addicted to the substance. Both conditions, however, require professional help. Those abusing drugs but not yet addicted can be more receptive to concerns from friends and family, and the possibility of entering treatment.
Those with full-blown drug addiction frequently resist or dismiss attempts by their loved ones who raise the issue of seeking help. It’s very important to not be discouraged by this reaction from the addict, and not take it personally.
If you or a loved one needs detox and rehabilitation, contact us today to speak with one of our caring and experienced Treatment Consultants. We can answer any questions regarding the information on this site, and work with you to develop individualized plans for treatment provided by American Addiction Centers. If the drug abuse has not yet become addictive, our facilities can help you stop it before it does.
For those who require it, detox will help overcome the physical addiction to drugs. Our highly experienced medical and nursing staff administer safe detox protocol and work to make the process as management as possible.
All drug rehab patients receive thorough assessments from our clinical team. They then work with us to develop a treatment plan that includes group and individual therapy sessions, life skills training, relapse prevention and more.
Aftercare is an essential part of recovery because it helps prepare for life after treatment, which may include 12-step meetings and counseling referred by our staff.
Without professional help, drug abuse can quickly and easily transition to full-blown addiction. With our help, this can be treated. Call us today to find hope, and get started.
