What Is Drug Addiction?

Drug addiction causes an individual to experience overpowering cravings for illegal substances or prescription medication. Despite negative consequences, the individual isn’t able to stop using the drug of choice. Drug addiction is a disease that interferes with the brain’s chemistry. Typically, drug addiction starts with the recreational use of drugs and then starts to snowball, turning into a full-blown addiction.

How Is Drug Addiction Treated?

Step one of treating drug addiction is detox. The detoxification process removes the substance from the individual’s body. This process can be scary for some, but with professional help, success is possible. Once detox is complete, an assessment of the individual is performed by a counselor. The assessment determines how bad the addiction is and if there are mental health issues compounding the addiction.

The information gathered from the assessment is used to develop a treatment plan that best fits the needs of the individual and addresses any mental health issues. Free by the Sea specializes in dual diagnosis/co-occurring treatment for those with addiction issues and mental health problems. Licensed medical staff can prescribe medication during the rehabilitation process that is non-addictive to aid in the recovery process.
