People from all walks of life are vulnerable to the perils of addiction. This complex disease, also referred to as substance use disorder, is characterized by a compulsive use of drugs that is difficult to control, despite the many harms that can result from this behavior.
Repeated substance abuse alters the way the brain looks and functions, making it more difficult for you to quit drug use and paving the road to addiction.
As such, any successful addiction treatment plan typically begins with medical detoxification.
Some of the signs and symptoms that you may indicate you have a drug addiction include: 3
Addiction is a major health crisis facing the state of Oklahoma. A recent survey conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration found that over a quarter of a million Oklahoma residents (aged 12 and older) meet the criteria for substance use disorder, the medical term for a diagnosis of addiction. 4 Overall, approximately 1 in 12 Sooners is battling some form of addiction. About 1 in 17 Oklahoma residents currently suffers from alcoholism, making it by far the most common addiction in Oklahoma. Nearly 100,000 Oklahomans are addicted to illicit drugs and at least another 22,000 individuals have a prescription painkiller addiction. 4
In 2018, nearly a quarter of a million Sooners were in need of some form of substance abuse treatment. 4 For anyone ready to take action against their addiction, Landmark Recovery of Oklahoma City’s addiction detox center is here to help you. Completely stopping drug use is necessary and often is the hardest part for any addict. This is why any successful addiction recovery program will require undergoing detoxification before starting treatment. This essential first step in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction, commonly called detox, involves the complete clearance of all addictive substances from your body. Depending on the specific substance of abuse, this process can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks.
Unfortunately, when people suffering from substance dependence abruptly quit their use of drugs or alcohol, they often experience characteristic symptoms of physical and psychological withdrawal. Symptoms can vary based on the substance, severity of addiction, and duration of abuse, but will often include: 5
More severe symptoms of withdrawal can also occur during addiction detox. Certain substances such as opioids and alcohol 5 can result in marked agitation and seizures, These complications can become life-threatening and must be quickly recognized and addressed. If left unmanaged, a difficult withdrawal experience also increases the risk of immediate relapse. For these reasons, it is highly recommended that individuals suffering from addiction undergo supervised, medically managed detox at a professional treatment center.
