Treatment for All Types of Drug Addictions
Drug addiction can happen to anyone, of any socioeconomic background. There are many different substances that people become addicted to, the most common being alcohol and opiates. Although we can address these common addictions at Diamond House Detox, we also treat a variety of other substance use issues, including addictions to:
- Sleeping pills
- A variety of other addictive substances
When someone uses these drugs on a regular basis, the body starts to develop a tolerance, and the user requires more to achieve the same high. Eventually, they become dependent, which means they have a compulsion to continue using the substance both to prevent withdrawal symptoms and to achieve the effect the drug provides them.
Drug addiction puts your health at risk. Long-term side effects depend on the type of drug you’re addicted to. However, many people with substance addictions experience permanent damage to their body and mind. In addition, thousands of people die every year due to drug overdose.
To break addiction’s hold over your life, detox is a crucial first step. Because detoxification can be painful and cause unpleasant side effects, a medical detoxification program like what you’ll find at Diamond House Detox is a key tool for a successful recovery.
