Detox Vs Rehab

Detox Vs Rehab

Detox or Rehab

Detox vs Rehab

For someone who is not familiar with drug addiction or alcohol abuse the terms Detox and Rehab can be difficult to understand and with good reason. In the field of substance abuse there is mis-use of these terms and the application are also incorrect in many instances. Detox is short for detoxification the action of removing toxins from a person or thing. Rehab is short for Rehabilitation which is the action of bringing a person back to a former ability or healthy condition.

Detox or Detoxification

Anyone addicted to some illicit drug or any other mind altering substance will, over time, have physically accumulated too much, and the toxic level will be such that the physical dependency now requires attention. This is usually where we hear the phrase “I’m going to detox”. What the persons is actually saying is that they are taking themselves out of the daily life action of intoxicating their body and mind and stop taking the particular substance.

Most detox centers will have a seven to ten day program where the person is assisted sometimes with other prescription drugs or medication to aid in their period of withdrawal. These programs however do not actually do a detoxification process, as stated above “remove toxins from”.

In the field of substance abuse detox has come to mean “stop adding toxins to” or “coming off of drugs”. When this Detox is achieved, meaning an overall 7 to 10 days of not taking their drug of choice the person is considered to be detoxed.

Much of this belief is based on the fact that after this time there is not more physical or mental effect on the person. But this is only true of the last doses of the drug taken. It is not a complete conclusion on the accumulated effects.

Rehab or Rehabilitation

In our system today the next step or the next thought after Detox is that the person is ready for addiction rehabilitation hence the saying “he is going to rehab”. This action in most provinces across Canada can only be done once the ‘detox’ step has been successfully completed.

Entering Rehab simply means the person is going to learn about how drugs or alcohol have affected them and why this was used as a substitute for another means to dealing with their condition. Unfortunately there are many addiction treatment centers that are under the firm belief that drugs or alcohol addiction is a disease with no cure. Maintenance and coping mechanism are the sole solution, according to some professionals.

Any good drug rehab will take into account that the substance abuser was not a drug addict from birth but due to lack of a better solution to some life problem alcohol or drugs tended to make the problem vanish. Who thinks of their marital problems or work conditions after a few good shots of whiskey? Or a few lines of cocaine?

Drug and alcohol rehab programs are intended to aid the person uncover the reason for starting to use mind altering substances and once that is located, giving the person tools and means to handle the real underlying issues. With sound advice and guidance and some knowledge and know-how on various life problems the person can regain their former abilities of living a normal enjoyable lifestyle, drug free and productive.

Any person who is dependent; meaning that he or she NEEDS to have a line of cocaine, a pipe of crack, a joint of weed or a glass of wine or some pills to face going to work, deal with the kids or to simply be accepted in some social gathering; can be traced back to some hidden unwanted personal condition the person didn’t know how to deal with. Drugs and alcohol only mask from awareness the condition, drug rehab counselors guide the person to uncover this and aid to dig and find the underlying causes and supply lasting solutions.

Spring break is coming soon; across Canada school board personnel will be issuing their month of March 2014 dates for spring break. This is the time in the school year where kids across the country from grade school to college get time off to relax and to do something other then school work, hang out with friends, etc. Some find hobbies to keep busy other go on trips to get away, and there are many that go on partying for days on end. Every year in the US there’s a death related to drug overdose or alcohol poisoning during spring break and Canada has its own disasters.

Preventing such activity is not a simple task; first off the hotels that accommodate these people are being paid good money by parents, etc. secondly its not against the law to have a good time. Unfortunately there is always someone who takes one drink too many, one line of cocaine too much, or shoots heroin for the first time, etc. Even though these incidents are usually isolated in various part of the country it still is cause for alarm. What parent wants to get a phone call from the ER that their daughter or son is being kept on life support for a drug overdose and is in a coma, or worse to get a call from the police to identify the body in the morgue.

This may sound a bit too serious, but is isn’t, drug addiction and alcohol abuse are serious issues and when kids get out there to party things always get out of hand, especially when drugs and alcohol are involved. Spring break should be a time to prepare for the upcoming work in school for final exams to pass the grade. Parents can do something to help during this time by being educated themselves in drug addiction and alcohol abuse, be sure you know what your child is doing, who their friends are and the signs of drug use or alcohol dinking.

If you know someone who is subject to drug use or abusing alcohol, call this number for some assistance, a drug addiction counselor and educator is standing by to take your call. It’s always wiser to know the subject matter before something can occur this way you can prevent the inevitable, especially when it comes to drugs and alcohol, call we’re here to help, educate, and guide to treatment as needed.

It only takes a few grains of Fentanyl to cause extreme high and the unpredictable side effects make this new street drug a danger to any heroin addict. Anyone not familiar with drug addiction will question a person who resorts to drug abuse to cope with daily affaires. In fact this is not much different than a local business man who comes home after a stressful day at work takes a few glasses of hard liquor to ease the stress. Anyone who turns to some toxic substance to ease their life situations is in fact on the road to drug addiction.

People turn to drugs or alcohol because of some personal painful situation. This pain can be emotional or physical; it can be related to some death of a loved one, or the loss of a relationship or just to cope with loneliness. Drug and alcohol tend to mask painful situations from the person’s awareness, at least as long as the drug produces a desired effect, when this wears off, more and more drugs are taken and the body becomes accustomed to it thus the cycle of drug addiction.

Why wait until someone you know is lying on the floor with a needle in their arm to act and do something to help them overcome their drug addiction.

Alcohol has always been a social substance used by people from around the world and has a history dating way back before the Roman Empire. Despite all the talk of how bad it is for one’s health not to mention the destructive effects to families, workplace and friends, people still consume alcohol in greater and greater quantity. For one thing it is legal to purchase alcohol as long as you abide by the legal age. There are some remote places that alcohol is banned and it’s illegal to bring alcohol to certain far away villages. But in general you can purchase alcohol almost anywhere as long as you are of age.

As of 2011 statistics it’s been noted that Alberta is the only province that shows a significant increase in alcohol abuse going from 73.8% in 2010 up to 80.0% in 2011. There is no doubt that this will continue to rise if nothing is done to curb alcohol use in Alberta. People drink alcohol for various reason and some are social others are more drastic. But in any case alcohol addiction is a serious national problem. Though since the tougher laws on drinking and driving and the massive campaigns against alcohol and operating motor vehicles including boats and snowmobiles, it’s certain to have contributed to the lowering of alcohol related death over the past decade.

But underlying all alcohol addiction will be found some painful emotional condition that is still unresolved for the person consuming the alcohol. This can be anything from the death of a close relative, to the loss of one’s job, to a messy divorce or some relationship gone badly. No matter what the underlying pain, alcohol tends to relieve the condition, at least for the time that the alcohol is in effect. When the alcohol effect wears off the pain returns and more and more alcohol is taken. The person will begin to change, their personality takes a turn for the worse, and soon they are drinking every day and all the time and now begins the destructive nature of alcohol abuse.

Alcoholism is not so much a disease as some would have you believe as it is a solution to an unresolved problem. When the alcohol addiction takes over the earlier problem is forgotten and this new problem is now present, but there are handlings for this condition. When alcohol abuse has gone on for too long, the only real handling is for the person to reach out and receive medical detox treatment. The withdrawal of alcohol when taken in large quantity or for extended period of time can be quite severe and life threatening therefore in order to protect the person medical staffs are require during this period of alcohol abuse treatment.
