Addiction is an Illness
Consensus has grown over the last decade in the medical community to acknowledge the fact that addiction is a disease. The primary warning signs addiction is that a person will feel sick when they quit using a substance and that they will need more and more of a substance to reach the same desired high. Other warning signs can include, using substances to avoid stress, driving under the influence, and mood swings while using.
Detox Services for Glendale, Arizona
For many addicts, the first step in their treatment is detoxification. Detox is the cleansing of toxins in drugs and alcohol from the addict’s system to prepare their mind and body for rehabilitation. The byproduct of detoxification is withdrawal. Withdrawal occurs when addicts stop using the substance(s) they are addicted to. It compels the addict to keep using by cravings, desires, and a feeling of sickness. Withdrawals from alcohol and benzodiazepines (benzos) can be severe and even deadly.
How withdrawal works in the brain is that when an addict stop using, the brain ceases production of the feel-good neuro-transmitters that create the mind-altering effect. It takes weeks for the brain to produce natural neurotransmitters again, and without those, people will have a sense of depression, which compels them to continue their substance use to maintain the release of neurotransmitters. In addition to cleansing, detox also helps addicts with their withdrawal symptoms, and there are medications available to help recovering addicts cope with the more severe and painful withdrawals.
The Power of Intervention
The friends and family members of substance abusers can feel powerless when it comes to helping their loved one who is suffering. If you know someone in this situation, now you can help them by staging an intervention. The purpose of an intervention is to gather friends and family members of the substance abuser in an effort to convince the addict to get help. Interventions should be calm and non-judgmental. They should show the addict how much they are loved, and this will compel them to get the treatment they need. We have specialists standing by 24/7 to guide you on how to create your own intervention in Glendale, AZ.
