Becoming Addicted to Drugs and Alcohol

If you're dependent on drugs, you came by your habit without intending to become addicted. Maybe you were injured in an accident, and your trusted family physician prescribed a month's worth of painkillers. At the end of thirty days, your injuries were healed but you felt as if you still needed to take the pills. Perhaps your doctor refilled the prescription once or twice, and now you feel sick if you don't take an OxyContin tablet or two every day. This is an addiction and the fact that it happened in a legally sanctioned manner doesn't make it any less of an addiction than illicit drug addiction.

What is Addiction and How Can Waverly Drug Treatment Centers Help

If you ask an expert, they will tell you that addiction is a treatable, not curable, medical condition. Those who suffer from addiction may have minds that are somehow 'wired' for addiction. This may be why addiction has a tendency to run in families. Even when family members are not drug addicts themselves, the fact that an addict is in the family may affect everyone.

Some Drugs are More Addictive Than Others

Most medications that your doctor prescribe can be taken for as long as needed and then discontinued without a problem. This is not at all the case with opioid pain medications. OxyContin, Lortab, Norco, Vicodin, and morphine are a few examples of prescribed medications that trigger addictions. When the body becomes accustomed to the presence of opioids, and those opioids are discontinued, the system goes into a kind of shock. Known as detox or withdrawal, this shock can wreak havoc on numerous bodily functions.

The addict who is suddenly without drugs may sweat profusely and feel anxious. As withdrawal progresses, symptoms become exponentially worse. Persons who have endured the rigors of drug withdrawal have described detox as more awful than any flu they ever had in their life. In truth, going through withdrawal without medical intervention can be quite dangerous and may lead to a stroke, a heart attack, or even death.

In former methods of detox, the addict who wished to stop taking opiates had no choice other than to endure the most severe symptoms of withdrawal. Today, centers for addiction treatment in Waverly that offer detox, offer it through the safest form in order to mitigate withdrawal symptoms. It is designed to ease you through the most harrowing parts of withdrawal. Getting clean may not be the easiest thing you've ever done for yourself, but it will certainly be worth it.

About Waverly, Ohio

The south-central Ohio city once known as Uniontown changed its name to Waverly in the early 1800s. Waverly boasts a rich history that includes nomadic peoples who left evidence of the Adena way of life some 13,000 years ago. Today, the seat of the county named for General Zebulon Pike offers much in the way of natural beauty and good old American culture. Unfortunately, many of the town's 5,000 residents would stand to benefit from a stint in one of several Waverly drug treatment centers in the region.
