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. A drug addiction treatment center offers hope, support, and inspiration for a better future.
Many people fear entering treatment and think they’ll never be able to manage their symptoms. However, with Red Oak’s clinical support, you can regain control of your life and gain the confidence to carry on with treatment, recovery, and sobriety. Addiction does not have to take over your life and leave you isolated and worn down. The team at Red Oak Recovery® is here to help you.
What Is Drug Addiction?
Drug addiction can refer to any number of illicit or prescription drug use disorders. 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.
Nearly every type of drug, whether you’re using heroin or methamphetamine, causes a powerful surge of dopamine in your brain. Once your mind begins to associate the use of the drug with 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 treatment program, such as the one offered at Red Oak Recovery®.
The Need for 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.

The Red Oak team knows your family is the greatest support system you have. With our family counseling, your parents and family members will have the opportunity to discuss their feelings toward your drug addiction and rehab in a comfortable setting.
This type of therapy helps remove any doubts and insecurities your family may have during rehabilitation and recovery. By addressing these feelings, you’ll gain a better understanding of the experience and reconnect with your family in the process.
