Troy, New York - USA (Rensselaer County)
Chemical Dependency can be treated at Healing Dependency and Intervention Rehab in Troy, New York
The term "chemical dependency" can be used in the same way that terms such as "substance abuse," "alcohol dependency," "drug dependency," and others can be. Sometimes, however, "chemical dependency" is used to denote a condition that could have been the result of an underlying mental illness. Healing Dependency & Intervention Rehab, 15 1st Street Ste. C, Troy, New York, can address this situation.
When a person in Troy, New York, has a mental illness, he may become chemically dependent on the drug that was being used to treat this specific condition. This could have occurred because the person, for any reason, may have increased the dosage without being told to do so by a Renssalaer County health care professional who initially prescribed the medication.
Another way that chemical dependency could occur is if a Troy, New York, resident takes another prescription medication or even a "street" or "recreational" drug along with the prescribed drug. The other drug may have caused the prescribed drug to have a stronger or weaker effect on the patient.
If the effect was stronger, the propensity for chemical dependency could have been increased. If it was weaker, the person may have taken more of the prescribed drug in an effort to achieve the results for which the medication was intended.

Interventions can be more successful if a trained interventionalist is present at the time it takes place. Healing Dependency and Rehab can provide staff members who can attend the intervention and offer assistance.
