Addiction Treatment at Design for Change

Addiction refers to a chronic brain system defect involving memory, motivation, and reward. It results in compulsive actions without caring about the consequences. With time, addiction severely interrupts one’s daily operations with episodes of remission and relapse. Unfortunately, addiction exacerbates with time despite the mild and intense use cycles. The long-term effects may be chronic health complications and social and financial consequences such as bankruptcy. At Design for Change, we provide individualized and safe treatment for our clients suffering from various drug addiction types.

Upon admission, our professional staff lays out an individualized treatment plan to help you fulfill your dream of being drug-free. We acknowledge that addiction is a constant battle, and we respect the confidentiality of our clients. We assist our patients to overcome various types of drug addiction, including:

Alcohol Addiction

The Adverse Effects of Alcohol Addiction

Excessive intake of alcohol has severe health complications. It may cause abnormal stimulation of pancreatic enzymes. Accumulation of these pancreatic enzymes may predispose one to pancreatitis. Also, alcohol addiction may facilitate glucose metabolism impairment. Insulin, which takes part in regulating blood sugar, is produced by the pancreatic cells, and damage to the pancreatic cells directly affects insulin production, leading to hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.

The liver detoxifies harmful substances. However, prolonged intake of alcohol through addiction overwhelms the liver causing liver disease and cirrhosis. Malnutrition is a long-term complication of alcohol addiction because alcohol interferes with the absorption of vitamins and nutrients.

Heavy drinking of alcohol because of addiction may cause erectile dysfunction in men. Excessive drinking suppresses libido and the production of sex hormones. On the other hand, women who heavily drink may suffer from miscarriage, preterm delivery, or infertility because of the menstrual cycle’s interruption.

Alcohol Dependency

Alcohol addicts are prone to emotional and physical dependency. This means that alcoholics cannot conduct normal daily activities without taking alcohol.

Treatment of Alcohol Addiction

At our facilities, we have a pool of specialized counselors and physicians ready to assist you in your journey of overcoming alcohol addiction. The services we offer include:

Counseling

They will direct you to support resources, encourage you, and respond to questions you may have. We must admit that recovery is a long journey, but we will emerge victorious if you remain committed.

Opiate Addiction

Opiates are strong painkillers. They are prone to abuse because opiates cause euphoria. Mostly abused opioids are codeine, morphine, heroin, hydrocodone, and oxymorphone.

Symptoms experienced by opioid addicts are intoxication state or withdrawal state. In an intoxication state, addicts will experience slurred speech, pupillary constriction, drowsiness, stupor, respiratory depression, and even a coma. In a withdrawal state, the addicts experience severe craving for the drug, abdominal pains, tremors, restlessness, and some autonomic symptoms such as piloerection.

You may be trying to quit opioid abuse, but it appears to be an uphill task. Hold on, do not give up. Our team of professionals is ready to assist you throughout the journey to live an opioid-free life, free from mental challenges and other side effects of opioid abuse. Welcome to our facilities. We offer various types of treatment that are instrumental to our clients while upholding our patients’ dignity and privacy. The treatment plan for opioid addicts in our facilities include:

Treatment for Opiate Addiction

Our counselors will assist you in going through therapy. Through behavioral therapy, you will be able to identify and drop behaviors and attitudes, which are harmful. More so, the actions that propel you to abuse opioids. In the course of therapy, you will learn how to prevent relapse, avoid drugs, and deal with cravings. Besides, our facilities incorporate incentives in our treatments to motivate the addicts to quit opioid use. We offer vouchers in return for a drug-free life. The value is low at the beginning but increases with time as you permanently avoid the drugs.

In our facility, we will assist you to avoid relapse through:

  • Building a strong support group that will be so helpful whenever you need it.
  • Engaging you in meaningful activities.
  • Setting future goals.
  • Challenging your thinking.
  • For recovering addicts out of rehab, our organization will help you join support groups and get sponsors.

Meth Addiction

Crystal methamphetamine is a highly addictive substance affecting the CNS. Methamphetamine is associated with a rush making individuals develop physical and emotional dependence from early stages. When you use the drug, it causes the release of dopamine, which is a pleasure hormone. Users report being energetic and confident as well. The need for a rush leads to addiction, and the users will do everything possible to achieve it. The addiction effects of methamphetamine include:

  • Paranoia. Amphetamine addicts suffer from visual and auditory hallucinations. They always feel that somebody is out to hurt them.
  • Physical signs. Methamphetamine addicts may be violent, suffer from mood swings, insomnia, confusion, and anxiety.
  • High body temperature. Amphetamine abusers have a high body temperature, which may make the addicts pass out.
  • Accelerated aging. Amphetamine addicts have dull skins with pimples and sores, which take a long to heal. Stained and broken teeth may occur among the abusers.

Because of less inhibition and impaired judgment, methamphetamine abusers are at risk of engaging in dangerous behaviors, including unsafe sex, leading to infections such as HIV/AIDS. The meth abusers may also experience convulsions, heavy sweating, dilated pupils, loss of appetite, and memory loss.

At Design for Change Recovery, we assist anabolic steroid addicts in overcoming their addiction and transforming into a better life. Individuals at risk of anabolic steroid abuse are sportsmen, such as athletes in need of increased muscle mass, improved muscle strength, and lean body mass. Bodybuilders and sportspeople overlook the adverse effects of these anabolic steroids in their desire for physical strength.

Short term side effects of anabolic steroids include delusions, impaired judgment, irritability, and paranoia. Long term effects of anabolic steroid abuse include stunted growth among teenagers, bald head in males and females, reduced sperm count, edematous conditions, liver and kidney failure.

Hallucinogen Addiction

Hallucinogens are drugs that alter emotions, perceptions, and moods. These substances change the attitude and thought, while the abusers believe that they enhance hallucinations. The abuse is common among college and high school students. However, these drugs have serious side effects on our mind and body. In case you are struggling with these potent mind-altering substances, reach out to us immediately for assistance.

The most abused include di-methyltryptamine, mescaline, magic mushrooms, and lysergic acid derivatives. Their side effects are mixed senses, detachment, psychosis, panic, and paranoia. Additionally, one may experience more negative consequences like the loss of appetite, increased heart rate, nausea, and hallucinations.

Treatment of Hallucinogen Addiction

Our substance abuse treatment strategy is to ensure a calm and safe environment for our patients, even as we provide behavioral therapy. Our professional staff will assess the patients for any underlying concurrent substance use disorders, including anxiety and depression. It is necessary because if we fail to tackle the co-occurring condition, there is a possibility of relapse in the future. We offer hallucinogenic addiction treatment at an affordable cost.

Marijuana Addiction

Rehabilitation is the best treatment for Cannabis addiction. At Design for Change Discovery, we provide the best rehab services to our clients and help them find a new purpose in life.
