UNDERSTANDING ADDICTION

What Is Addiction?

Addiction is a serious disease that affects your behavior. When you’re addicted to something, you can’t stop doing it, even if it’s harmful.

People can become addicted to many things, including drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex, and shopping. Addiction is often hard to overcome because it changes the way your brain works. Often, people need professional help to break an addiction. Substance abuse treatment programs in Tennessee at Nashville Treatment Solutions can help. 

The addiction cycle is made up of four main stages:

  • Substance abuse –  You start using a substance more and more.
  • Tolerance – You need more of the substance to get the same effect.
  • Dependence –  You can’t function without the substance.
  • Withdrawal – You have physical and psychological symptoms when you try to stop using the substance.

There’s no single cause of addiction. It often starts with experimentation, when you take a drug or use a substance for the first time. Your genes, mental health, family, and friends can all play a role in addiction.

UNDERSTANDING THE DRUG

What Are Opioids?

Opioids are a type of drug that includes illegal drugs like heroin and legal ones like oxycodone (OxyContin), hydrocodone (Vicodin), and codeine. Opioids work by binding to receptors in your brain and spinal cord. This bond blocks pain signals from traveling to your brain.

Doctors often use opioids to treat pain. They can come in pills, liquids, or injections. Some people who abuse the drugs crush the pills and snort them or mix them with water and inject them.

People who misuse opioids may take more than the prescribed dose, use it more often, or use it differently than intended. This misuse can lead to addiction.

COMMONLY ABUSED DRUGS

Types of Addictions We Treat in Nashville

Opioids

Opioids are drugs that include heroin, fentanyl, and oxycodone. Studies show opioids are responsible for taking more than 125 lives each day. These drugs can be easily accessible through prescriptions or illegal methods. Getting opioid addiction treatment can be a matter of life or death.

Alcohol

Alcohol addiction is not an easy addiction to recognize. Determining the difference between a casual drinker and somebody with alcohol addiction is not cut and dry. Many professionals with alcohol addictions seem to function normally, even under the influence of alcohol. Binge drinking, extreme mood changes, and hiding drinking are some signs of alcohol addiction.

Prescription Drugs

Prescription drug addiction rates continue to rise across the U.S. There are several classes of addictive prescription drugs, including benzodiazepines like Xanax, Opioids like OxyContin, and barbiturates like Amytal. Many people with a prescription drug addiction also struggle with mental disorders, making treatment challenging.

Cocaine

Many people begin using cocaine in a party setting, potentially thinking there is nothing to be worried about. However, cocaine addiction is a severe problem that can cause heart attacks, strokes, and seizures. Treating cocaine addiction often requires a serious dedication to treatment.

Marijuana

With more states legalizing marijuana, the number of people addicted to the drug is on the rise. Marijuana addiction can cause problems with memory, learning, and judgment. It can also lead to mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression.

Other Drugs

Designer drugs, meth, and hallucinogens can all cause addiction. These drugs can be hazardous, and users often experience psychotic episodes. Treatment for these addictions is vital to the user’s safety and well-being.

LET YOUR BODY RECOVER

Detoxing from Opioids

If you’re addicted to opioids, the first step in treatment is detoxification. This period is when your body cleanses itself of the drug. During detox, you may experience withdrawal symptoms like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Muscle aches
  • Sweating
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Detoxing from opioids can be dangerous, so it’s essential to do it under medical supervision. That way, you can ensure you’re safe and comfortable during withdrawal. After you detox, you’ll be able to focus on the next steps in treatment.
