Research indicates that drug abuse alters the brain’s chemistry, due to the fact that drugs oversaturate the brain with certain neurotransmitters, which the brain then becomes dependent on. Many of these substances create euphoric sensations caused by rushes of endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, and other chemicals, and so the individual who is using them becomes accustomed to feeling these elevated senses of euphoria. In times, and as they build up a tolerance to the substance, the individual must use more of the substance in order to get the desired effect, but what usually happens in time, is that they are unable to achieve this high, regardless of how much of the substance they take.

When this occurs, the addicted individual usually finds themselves in a precarious situation, where they must continue to use, in order to stave off withdrawals, and in order to keep their brain’s chemistry functioning at its current norm, but yet they are not experiencing the effects of the drugs in the manner in which they desire. Being in this position can be tremendously frightening and lonely, as the addict is more than likely fairly far into their addiction and have for the most part almost completely forgotten how to live life with the aid of substances.

Drug addiction is a terrible disease, which often times stems from pain, physical or emotional, and the desperation to escape feelings of anger, depression, loneliness, and grief. Rather than seeking professional help, individuals attempt to self-medicate, and in doing so they actually deepen and worsen their initial issues. This, however, is not clear at first, as the individual only notices that they are experiencing a reprieve from the pain that they have come to know so well, but in due time, the addiction always causes more pain, putting the addict is an unbearable situation that they may find difficult to get out of. The proffessioanls at our drug rehab in Kentucky understand addiction isnisde and out and our here to help you or your loved one begin the journey to sobriety. 

Drug Addiction Facts and Symptoms

Until recently drug addiction was viewed by the wider population as a moral failing that was caused by individuals making conscious choices to abuse substances, but with the explosion of opioid addiction in this country, many have become aware that addiction is neither a choice nor a failing on the part of the individual afflicted.

Drug addiction, like the kind we treat at our drug rehab in Kentucky, is an actual disease that should be treated by medical professionals. While many an addict every year attempts to combat their illness on their own, it should be said outright that this choice is most folly. In order to truly begin to grapple with your addiction, you should seek treatment at our drug rehab in Kentucky.

Some of the most commonly abused drugs are:

  •       Prescription drugs
  • Xanax
  • Oxycontin
  • Percocet
  • Klonopin
  • Fentanyl
  • Codeine  
  •       Cocaine
  •       Opiates
  •       Methamphetamine
  •       Marijuana
  •       MDMA

Some of the most common symptoms of drug addiction that you should be on the look out for are:

  •       Mood swings
  •       Desperately acquiring prescription drugs
  •       Impulsive behavior and poor decisions
  •       Recurring problems with relationships and work
  •       Drug-related encounters with law enforcement
  •       Preoccupation with seeking out more drugs
  •       Declining health such as weight loss, weakened immune system, and poor personal hygiene

 

What Happens at Drug Rehab?

Rehab, like the one offered at our Bowling Green drug rehab in Kentucky, usually refers to inpatient treatment for substance abuse, where the individual stays at the facility for the duration of their stay. However, this term can be used colloquially within the substance abuse treatment field to refer to any level of care in treatment, whether that is detox, inpatient, outpatient, or aftercare.

When it comes to the treatment of substance abuse issues, most people who suffer from addiction will need to attend one form of treatment or another. The reason for this is because it can be incredibly difficult to get and stay sober on one’s own volition. Many times when an individual attempts to get sober on their own, they will fall back into using at some point during the detox phase of their recovery, due to the fact that withdrawal symptoms are tremendously difficult to deal with without medical supervisor, or if this does not occur, they will relapse back into using immediately after the withdrawals have stopped.  For this reason, it is highly suggested that you attend a rehab facility, like our Bowling Green drug rehab in Kentucky, if you are planning to stop using drugs.

Individuals who attend an inpatient treatment program spend the duration of their stay at the facility. This means that they do not go to their own home at night like they would in outpatient, but by allowing them to stay at the facility they are given the ability to recover in a totally safe and secure environment. Unlike when an individual attempts to get sober on their own or through an outpatient service, individuals who attend inpatient have 24-hour support for anything that may arise during their stay. If they experience intense cravings during the night, they will have others who they can lean on, and they will also be given access to individual and group therapies during the day, and a number of other holistic services as well.

While it is never an easy thing to make the decision to attend treatment, at JourneyPure Bowling Green we aim to make this transition as easy as possible, in order to help you along your path in recovery.
