Alcohol addiction is characterized by chronic and uncontrolled consumption. Alcoholism refers to emotional and physical dependence. Many individuals suffering from alcoholism are unable to stop drinking despite understanding the physical, mental, and emotional consequences. Alcohol use disorder often requires treatment which involves behavioral therapy and even medication. Clients that require medication will be referred to CARE Clinic.
Benzodiazepines are one of the most frequently prescribed medications. They are commonly prescribed for neurological, psychiatric, or medical disorders. Benzos are effective in treating many health issues. However, they are highly addictive. Benzodiazepine abuse can be extremely dangerous due to its side effects and withdrawal symptoms.
Opioids are typically prescribed to help treat pain. Prolonged opioid use can cause physical dependence and addiction. Opioid addiction can happen to anyone. Opioids are not only highly addictive, but their withdrawal symptoms can make it challenging for individuals to stop taking the drug. Opioid addiction is characterized by uncontrollable cravings and an inability to stop using the substance despite the consequences.
Heroin is an opioid substance made from morphine. In many cases, heroin use begins after an inability to obtain prescription opioid medication. Heroin navigates to the brain and binds to opioid receptors, causing an addictive high. Both short-term and long-term effects of heroin can be dangerous and even deadly. Heroin use requires intensive treatment and therapy due to its dangerous and highly addictive characteristics.
Dependence on any substance can be physically and psychologically dangerous. Nicotine is believed to be as addictive as cocaine or heroin. Consequently, tobacco is one of the most commonly abused substances in the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 6 million deaths stem from tobacco use per year. Therapeutic treatments, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, have proven to be a successful treatment method for nicotine addiction.
