A New Wave of Drug Rehabilitation Efforts in Massachusetts

Helping you to bring what’s important back into focus.
The heroin problem in Massachusetts has been replaced with prescription drug addiction that more and more people are finding a lot easier to obtain.

While law enforcement agencies continue to struggle with the drug problem, Massachusetts state officials, healthcare experts, and whole communities are banding together to make significant headway into the successful drug treatment and rehabilitation of the ever-increasing number of Massachusetts’ drug dependents. So be it heroin or Vicodin, Lortab, OxyContin, Percocet, codeine, methadone, or morphine, the rehabilitation experts in Massachusetts are finding greater sense of optimism towards the management of this new wave of addiction.

Many new cases of substance addiction are indicative of the relative failures of past approaches to substance dependence management. Originally, substitute drugs are introduced into the body to take the place of the withdrawn drug. The belief is that, because of the significantly lower and more tolerable forms of withdrawal symptoms, substitute drugs will be a lot easier to manage than the principal drug. However, what invariably happens is that the individual gradually became dependent as well on the substitute drug. So what was deemed the cure now became an entirely new and different set of problems. Such is the complex nature of addiction treatment.

While one treatment may prove effective, over time it creates additional problems to the original one. Thus, Massachusetts’ rehab facilities are working ever closely with healthcare experts in the state and federal levels to come up with more efficient and effective strategies to provide rehabilitation care to the growing number of dependents in the state. Although the task would seem formidable to many, healthcare experts are nonetheless optimistic about the prospects of success in drug rehabilitation efforts.

There are plenty of substance addiction support and management facilities in Massachusetts. And every single one is cognizant of the inadequacies of past therapeutic regimens. It is for this reason that everyone concerned is also doing their part in making significant improvements in the way treatment and rehabilitation efforts are carried out. For starters, pharmacologic therapeutic regimens are now closely monitored and very strictly enforced often in a stepwise tapering manner. Each significant lowering of the dose is carefully monitored for any untoward and unwanted effects. Furthermore, symptomatic management of withdrawal complaints is now considered as a mainstay in drug rehab rather than substituting one addicting substance for another.

The community is also getting more active in the rehabilitation of individuals who have problems with drugs and other addicting substances. Rehabilitation facilities are increasing their presence in communities all over Massachusetts to disseminate educational and very useful information on the need to provide assistance to those who are silently suffering from the ill effects of drug use. Although it may take several years before all of these efforts bear fruit, it is nonetheless opined that the concerted effort of everyone in the state will significantly impact the way individuals receive rehabilitation care.

More importantly, the individual efforts of a particular addiction center will greatly impact the way these rehabilitees are able to return and re-integrate into their respective communities.
