Our credentialed specialists offer a personalised drug addiction treatment programme, with medical detox and intensive holistic treatment to address addiction to illicit drugs such as methamphetamines, opiates, marijuana, crack/cocaine and hallucinogens. Because of their illegal nature, addiction to these substances often coincides with traumatic experiences. We understand this and we are equipped to help. The first step of our treatment programme is always medical detox, which is closely monitored by our team of specialists. This is followed by an intensive, holistic treatment program that addresses not only the addiction but also any underlying mental health conditions. Our aim is to help you or your loved one build a foundation for long-term recovery.
What is drug addiction?
Drug addiction is a complex and persistent medical condition that is characterized by an individual’s uncontrollable desire to use drugs, even when they are aware of the negative consequences that it brings to their life and to those around them. People with drug addiction often have an intense urge to seek and use drugs despite knowing that their drug use is causing problems at home, at work, or in school. It may even lead to legal consequences such as arrest or job loss. However, despite the negative outcomes, individuals with drug addiction may find it difficult to stop using drugs on their own, making it a chronic and challenging condition to overcome.
What Causes Drug Addiction?
The causes of drug addiction are not limited to one single factor, but rather a complex interplay of genetic, environmental, and social influences. Genetics can play a role in determining an individual’s vulnerability to addiction, as certain genetic predispositions can increase the likelihood of developing an addiction. Additionally, environmental factors such as exposure to drug abuse in early life, peer pressure, and traumatic experiences can also contribute to the development of drug addiction.
Social factors, such as poverty, lack of education, and unstable family life, can also increase the risk of drug addiction. In summary, drug addiction is a result of a complex interplay of biological, psychological, and environmental factors, and each individual’s experience with drug addiction is unique and influenced by their personal circumstances.
What is the treatment for drug addiction?
There is no single answer to the question of how to treat drug addiction. Rather, it is a complex disease that requires a comprehensive treatment approach tailored to the individual’s unique needs and circumstances.
The first step in treating drug addiction is typically detoxification, which is followed by an intensive rehabilitation program. Medication may also be used to manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings. In some cases, long-term maintenance medication may be necessary.
The Freeman House drug addiction treatment programme is individualised to meet the unique needs of each patient. We offer a comprehensive, holistic approach that includes medical detox, intensive rehabilitation, and long-term support.
