Drug Rehab Information By State
At Narconon Arrowhead we realize that in a majority of cases we are dealing with individuals who not only have a drug or alcohol problem but who abuse
drugs in the plural sense, meaning more than one drug of abuse.

of multiple drugs the reality for most.

At Narconon Arrowhead rehab treatment
center we recognize depression as a factor the locks an addict into his addiction.
Depression is a source of significant discomfort that prompts continued use and is a major barrier to recovery.
Some traditional medical and psychiatric-based programs treat the depression as the cause of addiction
with further drugs and medications which only serve to mask the symptoms. Once these additional drugs wear off, depression returns, often worse. This makes the recovery process more difficult, if not impossible.
In most cases depression actually manifests itself after the person becomes addicted, not before.
The cause of the depression is linked to the drugs themselves.
With most drugs there are short term effect, long term effects and addiction
side effects which would actually be long term effects resulting from abusive use of illegal drugs
to prescription drugs
that can occur even at what is commonly considered ‘safe’ levels. Anti-depressants are a case in point.
Many of these legal medications have serious side effects including increased violent behavior as well as suicidal ideation when taken at prescribed levels, especially in youth.
Add in the fact that many of these drugs are taken at abusive non-prescribed levels as well as mixed with other prescription drugs
and illegal street drugs. With the current trends in abuse
and addiction inpatient medically supervised withdrawal is vital in most cases of addiction treatment.
Each drug, alcohol or toxin has its own long term effects as the result of abuse
and addiction. There are a couple of common denominators however when it comes to the long term effects of addiction.
One of these is the fact that these drugs and toxins can store in the fat tissues of the body for weeks, months, and even years after cessation of use. These can account for sometimes uncontrollable cravings for the drug or substance even though it hasn’t been used in sometime.
Strong feelings of guilt and depression are also common long term effects of addiction
due to sacrificing of integrity and values that accompanies the addictive lifestyle.
These three points are common to addictions
of all sorts and are the reason for continued use and relapse.
