What Is An Addiction?

Addiction is a physical and mental dependency on substance or behavior to the point where a person no longer has control over what he or she does. Those with addictions may require drug addiction rehab to help a person overcome the withdrawals and cravings that result from addiction.

Drug Treatment Centers Putnam can help addicts find rehab programs that work for their individual situation. Call 860-207-8360 to find out more.

Different Types of Drug Addiction

A person can be addicted to legal or illegal substances and receive drug addiction rehab for each. For example, illegal substances a person can be addicted to include cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamines.

A person may also abuse legal substances, such as alcohol or prescription drugs, including OxyContin, morphine, Adderall, Klonopin or Xanax. Drug addiction rehab is available for each of these drug abuse types.

Drug and Alcohol Addiction Signs and Symptoms

Prolonged drug or alcohol abuse typically causes a person to develop personality and even body changes that are often noticeable to close friends and family. Signs and symptoms of addiction include:

  • Bloodshot eyes
  • Craving drugs or alcohol when not in use
  • Disengaging from activities a person once enjoyed
  • Engaging in secretive behaviors
  • Experiencing difficulties at work or with relationships
  • Experiencing financial problems
  • Experiencing problems with the law
  • Having periods of intense energy, followed by crashes
  • Paranoia
  • Smaller or larger pupils

Different Treatment Options

Drug rehabilitation programs often offer inpatient and outpatient treatment options. Inpatient programs involve a 30-day stay or longer at the rehabilitation facility. Outpatient treatment programs typically follow a typical workday, such as an 8 to 5 program.

While outpatient programs can be a tempting approach for those with substance abuse problems because it allows the person to live at home, a residential program can provide the supervision and support that is often needed to truly overcome an addiction.

Intervention: Getting Someone You Love Into Rehab

A person with a substance abuse problem does not always recognize his or her problem and voluntarily go into rehab. Instead, he or she may require a drug intervention. An intervention involves acknowledging a person has a substance abuse problem, and providing that person with the tools to seek treatment at a rehab facility.

One of the principles of effective substance abuse treatment is that treatment be readily accessible. After outlining a person’s problem, giving him or her a recommendation or letting the person know he or she has an available bed at a rehabilitation treatment facility, can help the person get treatment.

Different intervention types exist. Formal interventions are when a person has a set meeting with friends or family. The intervention is very structured in terms of agenda. An informal intervention does not involve a set time and no specific agenda is set.

Several different approaches or models for interventions exist. When planning an intervention, a person or persons can use these models.

Various intervention models exist:

  • Direct Confrontation: This approach involves friends and family members directly speaking to the person about his or her substance abuse.
  • Indirect Confrontation: Indirect confrontation can involve an outside intervention expert to describe the problems and symptoms others may have noticed in the person.
  • Forcible Intervention: Not all admissions to a rehabilitation program are voluntary. Forcible intervention often gives a person a choice to seek help or to risk losing financial or residential support.
  • Motivational Interviewing: This approach involves asking a person questions about his or her substance abuse to potentially encourage a person to make the decision to seek treatment.
  • Systemic: A systemic intervention can involve several planned meetings on a regular basis to allow a person to consider the possibility of seeking treatment at a rehabilitation facility.
  • ARISE: Also known as an “invitational intervention,” the person is given advanced notice regarding his or her abuse and knows the meeting’s purpose before attending it.
