With such a wide variety of synthetic drugs accessible to individuals susceptible to drug abuse it is not surprising that drug abuse recovery programs are available for treatment. Addiction to these drugs requires that the individual break the connection between their body and the drug. This needs to be accomplished by going through the process of stopping use which in turn causes withdrawal symptoms.
The symptoms include such things as:
- Severe Body Aches
- Muscle Aches
- Joint Pain
- Bone Pain
- Difficulty Breathing
- Mood Swings
These symptoms can be somewhat controlled by a medical professional during detoxification. This is often accomplished with the use of medication to help ease the discomfort. The team will monitor the individual very carefully for any signs of serious distress and provide medical care when needed.
After the detoxification has completed, the individual will start to work one on one in therapy to get to the root of the drug abuse. This may include cognitive behavioral therapy to retrain the person to react differently to stress and life's pressures. Along with this one on one therapy may come group therapy that will provide the person with a group of similar addicts within the community who can relate to the difficulties faced by the addict. The support system will help the group to learn what to avoid when trying to stay free from drugs. It will also supply the person with a sense of belonging and a way of dealing with the guilt that they may be feeling over their addiction.
