Do You Need a Drug Detox Treatment Center?
While many people may use drugs occasionally or recreationally at parties or events, consistent drug use is often a sign of addiction.
When a person becomes addicted to a drug, their brain chemistry changes. Drugs like OxyContin, meth, and cocaine flood the brain with chemicals like dopamine. Dopamine is a necessary and natural chemical that gives us feelings of joy and euphoria while also motivating us. Drugs provide the brain with a quick, intense dose of dopamine that decreases their natural dopamine production. Over time, this causes the brain to stop producing dopamine and other necessary chemicals. When this happens, the brain relies on drugs for chemical processes and experiences intense withdrawal when drugs leave the bloodstream.
Withdrawal is one of the telltale signs that recreational drug use has become an addiction. Common withdrawal symptoms include:
- Drug cravings
- Mood swings
- Disturbed sleep
- Preoccupation with drugs
- Lying to loved ones
- Reckless behavior
- Other drug-seeking behavior
While each family of drugs comes with specific withdrawal symptoms, the above list can help loved ones gauge if their family member is struggling. Withdrawal symptoms can make quitting cold turkey dangerous. During withdrawal, willpower is often insufficient to keep someone from reusing, using other drugs, or overdosing. Unfortunately, the number of overdoses and overdose-related deaths in Nebraska is rising.
Our Three-Step Detox and Drug Addiction Treatment Program
Northpoint Nebraska focuses on three steps for successful addiction recovery:
Through our various inpatient programs, patients experience individualized care to help them safely detox, address addiction triggers, and integrate sobriety into their daily lives.
Begin with Drug Detox
Patients receive 27/4 monitoring in private rooms during our seven-day inpatient detox programs. During this time, our staff monitors vital signs and provides necessary nutrients and hydration. They also provide patients with medically assisted detox medications to ease withdrawal symptoms and prevent complications.
Build an Understanding Through Inpatient Rehab
In this inpatient program, patients work with cognitive-behavioral therapists to uncover the roots of their addiction. For many, addiction stems from unresolved trauma, prolonged stress, and undiagnosed co-occurring disorders. Our dual diagnosis treatment addresses mental health disorders, treating anxiety and depression alongside addiction.
Develop Healthy Coping Skills Through Therapy
In our center, we offer a number of addiction treatment therapies to help our patients develop the healthy coping skills they need to maintain recovery. Through both group and individual sessions, patients learn how to avoid relapse once they leave our center. These sessions are the foundational part of our treatment programs.
