Drug Addiction

Drug Addiction

Alcohol and drug addiction is a major problem in the United States. It is estimated that nearly 24 million people received some sort of alcohol or drug addiction treatment in the United States in 2009. However, only 11.2 percent of these people received treatment at a specialty facility. Most commonly treated drug addictions include alcohol, alcohol used in combination with a drug, marijuana, and heroin.

What Types of Drugs are People Addicted To?

What are the most addictive types of drugs? According to The Lancet, some drugs are more addictive than others. However, the likelihood of addiction depends upon the type of substance being abused and the individual. The most addictive drugs, according to the study, are: heroin, cocaine, tobacco, alcohol, sleeping pills, alcohol, and benzos. Often, many drugs are abused at once. For example, benzos are often abused with alcohol. Also, addiction may be accompanied by a mental health disorder. Many people who abuse alcohol or drugs often have an ongoing struggle with depression, trauma, or another cognitive issue.

Addiction is a complex condition; however, it can be treated successfully. The immediate goal of a luxury detox center like The View is to make the client as comfortable as possible while they deal with withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms vary from client to client and depend largely upon the type of substance abused. Some substances have a withdrawal process that starts within a few hours of the last dose and peaks within a few weeks.

The View offers several amenities to clients that make their treatment process as comfortable as possible. Some additional programs that we offer include massage, meditation, and yoga. These luxurious facilities and programs are designed to help clients relax and focus on their recovery in a safe and comfortable environment.

At The View, clients participate in individual therapy, group psychotherapy, and stress reduction groups. We also offer additional services that can help clients improve their lives and eliminate harmful behaviors.

We also offer EMDR, a specialized program that can help clients deal with traumatic experiences that may be complicating their addiction.
