Treatment for drug addiction is designed to stop compulsive drug use and seeking. The treatment can take place in many settings and be given in different ways. It may also last for different periods of time. A short-term, one-time treatment for drug addiction is often not enough. It is a chronic disorder that is often characterized by relapses. Many people find that long-term treatment involves regular monitoring and multiple interventions.
There are many evidence-based treatments for addiction. Treatment for addiction can include medication, behavioral therapy, and/or a combination of both. The patient’s needs and the type of drug they are using will determine the treatment that is best for them.
Individuals addicted to opioids can get methadone, buprenorphine and naltrexone as treatment. For those addicted to tobacco, nicotine preparations (patches and gum, lozenges and nasal sprays) and the medications varenicline or bupropion can be used. For treating alcohol dependence, medications such as disulfiram, buprenorphine, and naltrexone can be used. This is often a side effect of prescription medication addiction.
Prescription drug abuse treatment tends to be the same as illicit drugs, which affect the same brain systems. Buprenorphine can be used to treat heroin addiction as well as addiction to opioid pain medication. Prescription stimulants can also cause addiction, and they affect the brain in the same way as illicit stimulants such as cocaine. Behavioral therapies are available to treat this condition, since there are no medications to treat it.
Behavioral therapies can be used to motivate individuals to take part in drug treatment. They also provide strategies to cope with cravings and teach people how to avoid relapse and avoid it. Behavioral therapies can help improve communication, relationships, parenting, and family dynamics.
Many programs offer both individual and group therapy. Group therapy can be used to reinforce and enforce behavior contingencies that encourage abstinence and a drug-free lifestyle. To increase efficiency and reduce costs, some of the most well-known behavioral treatments such as cognitive-behavioral and contingency management are being modified for group settings. Group treatment can have unintended negative effects, especially for adolescents. Sometimes, group members can encourage drug use and derail the therapy’s purpose. These effects should be monitored by trained counselors.
Because they treat different addictions, combination of medications and behavioral therapy can be more effective than one approach alone.
People who use drugs are often also suffering from other issues, such as legal, social, occupational, familial, or family. The best programs offer a variety of services and therapies to suit each patient’s individual needs. When patients suffer from co-occurring mental disorders, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety disorders, mood stabilizers and mood stabilizers, psychoactive medication, such as antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications, can be crucial to their treatment. People with severe addictions abuse multiple drugs and need treatment for each.
1. Addiction is a serious but manageable disease that can affect brain function and behavior. The brain’s structure, function and substance abuse can cause changes that last long after the drug has been stopped. This could explain why drug addicts can relapse, even after long periods without using drugs and despite potentially fatal consequences.
