The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that almost 23 million Americans suffer from substance addiction and sadly only 2 million have received treatment. One reason being that people are often ashamed, embarrassed or afraid to get in trouble with the law if they seek treatment. The other: that treatment centers are just not being built at the speed that they are needed; in fact, a lot of patients from around the nation have been turned away and forced to commute to other states to receive treatment. The wonderful facilities in Oregon have opened their doors to more than thousands of patients. Oregon treatment centers provide guidance, support and relief from addiction for those who have been turned away or are afraid.
Treatment centers are specifically designed to cleanse the mind, body and soul of every patient. They teach the tools necessary to live a life free from the dependence of stimuli and prepare patients for peer pressure and temptation. The medical professionals who work at Oregon treatment centers are highly-qualified and well-trained to deal with a wide variety of different people and different conditions. They craft treatment programs around each and every patient’s unique and specific needs.
All programs begin with a thorough assessment of both the mental and physical health of the body. Medical professionals assess the body for any physical harm or damage, such as bruises, cuts or anything that should be treated before beginning addiction treatment. During the mental evaluation, patients communicate with licensed therapists and psychologists in order to diagnose any mental conditions they may be suffering from. In most cases, patients who have an addiction will also suffer from an underlying mental health disorder that they may not know is causing their addictive behaviors.
Following the assessment, patients will undergo a detoxification (detox) process in which all toxic substances will be safely removed from the body, either under a general anesthesia and with or without medication. The length and level of uncomfortableness caused by withdrawal symptoms will all depend on of the severity of the addiction. For someone detoxing from marijuana, their experience will be a lot less severe and shorter than someone who is detoxing from heroin.
After 5-7 days or a couple of weeks of the detox process, patients will begin a combination of therapeutic modalities, including traditional and experiential therapies. Traditional therapies are designed for patients to recognize their maladaptive behaviors and replace them with positive coping mechanisms. The experiential therapies are based off of balancing the mind and body; they focus on connecting with the inner-psyche in order to pinpoint deep-rooted issues and find the cause of their addictive behaviors.
When people continue to suffer from addiction, they will lose their jobs, homes, families and their minds. Eventually, addicts will isolate themselves and become suicidal. There is a way to break the chains of addiction and the first step is to seek help at a treatment center.
The programs offered at Oregon treatment centers significantly increase the chance of a successful recovery. They offer guidance and support, as well as a new outlook on life.
