We are in the midst of a drug abuse and overdose crisis in the United States with the opioid epidemic causing skyrocketing numbers of deaths. In 2015, there were just over 463 opioid prescriptions written for every 1,000 Los Angeles County residents,1 and these high numbers of prescriptions are associated with rising numbers of opioid-dependent individuals. People who never considered abusing drugs are finding themselves addicted to opioids. While there has a long been a stigma associated with addiction, it’s become devastatingly clear that this disease can touch anyone. If you’re someone who is struggling with addiction, you don’t have to be ashamed. Like any other illness, addiction often requires focused treatment for any improvement to be made.

When you choose to accept help, your treatment often begins with a period of detox. For certain drugs, withdrawal can be severe and potentially dangerous. In these cases, medical assistance  may be needed so that you can safely get through the detox period with increased comfort and reduced relapse risk. Some inpatient rehabs will include medical detox, but not all will. Ask any potential programs whether they are able to provide this aspect of care.

Once your body has been cleared of the immediate toxic influence of drugs or alcohol, you’ll be able to fully focus on connecting with your therapist, counselor, and peers. Therapy and support groups will help you to both connect with others to get and give support and to leave old negative patterns behind and learn new positive coping skills. Therapy may take place in an inpatient rehab or an outpatient program. If you prefer to stay close to home, you can pick a Downey drug and alcohol program or you can choose to travel out of the area. Many people choose to fly to serene locales like the beach or the mountains where they can reconnect to nature and to themselves as they recover.

For assistance in finding the right treatment for you or someone you love, call us at any time.

Before recovery can get underway, the body must be cleared. This is called detoxification. The majority of narcotics will leave the addicted individual with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to the drug. Professional detox can diminish the symptoms for anyone seeking to start fresh.
