Substance use affects millions of Americans each year. Millions of people use drugs, either recreationally or due to addiction. Still, more have a friend, family member, or loved one who is addicted to drugs. Unfortunately, many of the people who suffer from addiction do not get the care, support, and treatment they need. Either they think they are too far gone or believe that treatment can’t help their situation. Fortunately, that is not the case.

What is Drug Addiction?

When we refer to drug addiction, we’re discussing the physical and psychological dependence on substances such as cocaine, heroin, or opioids. Addiction exercises a powerful and dangerous hold on your brain, which reveals itself in a few distinct ways. The first way is that you crave the substance. In other words, you repeatedly have urges to use the drug. In addition, you may struggle to control your use of the drug. You may also continue to use the substance even if using it has adverse consequences.

Once your mind begins to associate the use of the drug to that surge of dopamine, it starts rewiring itself, causing it to forget how to function without the drug. The more you take the drug, the more difficult it is to stop using it. 

Unfortunately, the more you use the substance, the more of the drug your brain will tolerate. As a result, you may find that you need to take more of the drug to get the same result. You may also observe that you battle withdrawal symptoms when you do not use the drug. A combination of these factors can make it extremely difficult to stop using the drug without the help of a drug addiction program, such as the one offered at Red Oak Recovery.

Family Program at Our Drug Addiction Treatment Program

We believe it would be a disservice to our clients if we only treat the person and not their family as well. As parents and family members, you may develop uncomfortable emotions and fear during your loved one’s rehabilitation and treatment. At Red Oak Recovery, we will provide the resources to reconnect with your loved ones and gain an understanding of substance use, trauma, and mental health issues through our family program.

Trauma, grief, and disconnect are often found in family members during a loved one’s treatment, so it’s important to address these family issues in a safe and comforting atmosphere.

Men’s Drug Addiction Treatment Program

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Many people begin using drugs to escape the symptoms of underlying mental health issues. Conversely, you may have begun using drugs, and later developed a mental health problem. Unfortunately, both problems are all too common. Additionally, only treating one condition or the other does not work. If you only address the addiction, the symptoms of the mental health condition return, and, without anything to relieve them, you may find yourself turning back to drugs. Alternatively, you may want to get treatment for the mental health condition, but continue using drugs. In doing so, you may find that your addiction causes other mental health conditions to develop and your symptoms to grow worse. 

As a result, it is imperative that you seek out dual diagnosis treatment. Dual diagnosis treatment addresses both needs simultaneously. In other words, you get the skills you need to manage addiction triggers and relieve cravings. However, you also get the tools you need to manage your mental health condition in the future. Dual diagnosis treatment can give you the support and care you need to stay in recovery for longer periods of time.

Therapies Used in Drug Addiction Treatment

When you come to our addiction treatment center in North Carolina, you’ll find that you spend a significant portion of your time in therapy. Therapy sessions allow you to get to the root cause of your addiction and provide you with the tools to curb your addictive behaviors in the future. 

At Red Oak Recovery, we’re happy to provide a range of evidence-based and holistic therapies to give you the support you need. Evidence-based therapies are treatments which experts in addiction recovery have studied extensively. They know that these treatments can effectively address addiction. On the other end of the spectrum, holistic therapies are treatments that address the damage that addiction has done to a person’s mind, body, and soul. We use a combination of these therapies, which we tailor to each person’s unique needs in our treatment program.
