Though it is true that opioid drugs like heroin and prescription painkillers are to blame for a significant portion of the deaths caused by overdose in La Mesa, California, and across San Diego County, it is also true that other types of prescription medications may play a role as well. According to the County of San Diego Department of the Medical Examiner, in 2016, about 32% of deaths caused by all opioids showed the presence of a benzodiazepine as well, and 83% of overdose fatalities that were caused by the use of benzodiazepines also showed a prescription opioid painkiller present.1

Using a combination of substances can significantly increase your risk of experiencing an overdose, even if the dose you use of one or both substances is relatively small. When combined, substances can have a synergistic effect, meaning that they work together to create an effect that is significantly stronger than the sum of the two drugs on their own—when it comes to physiological effects such as respiratory depression, such a combination could be disastrous.

The truth is, any misuse of an intoxicating substance can be dangerous, either in isolation or when combined with other intoxicants. If “recreational” use is negatively impacting your life, you could benefit from substance abuse treatment. Contact a treatment advisor today to discuss the specifics of your situation and determine what type of rehabilitation is appropriate for your needs.

Addiction Therapy after Inpatient Substance Abuse Rehab

Those who need help for alcohol and drug abuse the most are often the last ones to accept it. Drug abuse interventions gather family and friends to impress upon the user the need for change, and for rehab.

What About Luxury Drug Abuse Treatment Centers?

Before recovery can commence, the body must be cleaned. This is known as detoxification. Many narcotics will leave the addicted person with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to getting the substance. Medical detox can minimize the discomfort for anyone seeking to get clean and sober.

Residential Rehabilitation Centers

When inpatient treatment for drug abuse ends, you may feel like you need more help. It's critical to have a solid support group if you are to get clean. A continuing course of addiction therapy allows you to go at your own pace. You'll get the benefits of meetings and group counseling for as long as you require them.
