Wide Coverage of Drug Addictions
Luxury drug treatment centers are well equipped to assist with addictions to a wide array of drugs and substances. While all addictions work in a cycle of tolerance build-up and substance dependence, not every drug affects the human body differently. This is why treatment for drug addictions may differ between substances.
Opioids are often prescribed or administered by doctors as painkillers, most commonly after surgery. However, long-term usage of opioids builds up the user’s tolerance to the drugs, which drives to increase their dosages (regardless of a doctor’s prescription), and eventually build a dependence on said opioids.
Heroin is an illegal opioid. Other opioids include Codeine, OxyContin, Morphine, and Fentanyl. Heroin is often used for its euphoric effects. However, withdrawal from Heroin comes alongside several symptoms that can be described as flu-like. However, it can also include psychological symptoms too.
Cocaine is associated with intense rushes of pleasure. Cocaine replaces the body’s natural supply of dopamine, causing the body to stop producing it. Once usage of cocaine is ceased, the lack of dopamine (which is responsible for feelings of happiness and achievement) can lead to depression. This causes a vicious cycle of withdrawal and further usage.
Methamphetamines, or Meth, is a stimulant, like cocaine. It follows the same pattern of intense short-term pleasure followed by painful crashes. Long-term usage of Meth can lead to permanent brain damage, causing memory and emotional regulation issues
Commonly referred to as Benzos, these drugs are made to decrease anxiety and aid sleep. Logically, withdrawal symptoms include high anxiety and sleep issues (insomnia). Benzodiazepines are dangerous due to their quick dependence building, even with prescription usage.
Other prescription medications
Luckily, experts at a luxury drug treatment center are well equipped to treat addictions to the drugs discussed above in addition to a variety of other prescription medications that can be abused.
The first step in relapse prevention is establishing customized care. When a patient first enters a luxury drug treatment center, alongside healthcare experts, they devise a personalized care plan that focuses on their sobriety goals.
Once a patient’s goals are understood, the next step is treating the patient’s cause of addiction. Drug addiction rehab is not just about breaking the cycle of addiction. Drug addiction experts in treatment centers put a great deal of focus on determining the root cause of addiction, treating it, and therefore preventing relapses in the long-term.
Another essential aspect of relapse prevention is rehabilitation. This means that professionals at luxury drug treatment centers help patients learn or re-learn essential life skills. This step makes the patient’s return to their daily life much easier, and it also reduces the chances of a drug relapse.
Lastly, all of this work towards relapse prevention is done in a comfortable and patient-friendly environment. Comfort allows patients to work through their addictions safely. In addition to providing a luxurious environment, such drug treatment centers avoid overcrowding.
Variety of Therapeutic Options
Since not every form of therapy will meet the needs of every patient, a luxury drug treatment center is bound to offer a variety of therapy options.
As the name suggests, during individual therapy, patients work one-on-one with experts to determine the root cause of their drug addictions. From there they can begin to understand why and how they developed their addiction, and how they may conquer it.
Psychotherapy allows patients to work through any psychological issues that they may have. Whether it be that psychological issues drove drug abuse or were derived from drug abuse, these issues are highly likely to be related to a drug addiction.
In group therapy, patients are given to opportunity to learn that they are not alone. Drug addiction can be shameful and stigmatizing, which makes it hard for those suffering from drug addictions to open up. Group therapy breaks down the stigma and allows patients to build supportive communities between each other and build long-term relationships. These communities can greatly improve the likelihood of long-term recovery.
Holistic therapy addresses the general spiritual, mental, and physical well-being of patients. Allowing patients to recuperate their general well-being provides an excellent chance at rehabilitation and can also be a good distraction from withdrawal symptoms.
