In 2014, Rhode Island topped the nation in illegal drug use and much like the rest of the country, heroin and prescription opioids make up the bulk of the drug addictions and overdoses in the state. Other drugs that are prevalent in the Rhode Island area include marijuana, alcohol, and cocaine while other illegal and prescription drugs are abused in relative low numbers.

Addiction Treatment is Always Necessary
Many people who suffer from a drug or alcohol addiction make the mistake of thinking that they can overcome their addiction all on their own without any help. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has found evidence to the contrary though. According to their studies, overcoming an addiction without professional treatment in next to impossible and should not be attempted by most people suffering from addictions.
Providence Drug Treatment Centers knows addiction is a chronic disease. It affects the structure and the function of the brain as well as person's mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health. This complicated disease needs to be treated by professionals, just like diabetes and heart disease also require medical care.
Addiction Treatment Programs (401) 227-1688
Let Providence Drug Treatment Centers connect you with your ideal program. The first step of any high quality drug addiction treatment program is to go through medical detox. Medical detox allows the recovering addict to get the drug out of their system under the close supervised care of medical professionals. These doctors and other healthcare workers can treat and manage withdrawal symptoms using prescription medications that will reduce the severity of those withdrawal symptoms and may even help to make the detox process shorter.
Detox can take days to weeks to complete. However, after the worst of it has passed and the person is able to function relatively normally without the drug in their system, they can begin the rest of their addiction treatment. This will address the initial factors that contributed the development of an addiction to drugs or alcohol. A person needs to develop an awareness of these issues and triggers so that they can cope with them or overcome them in healthier and more productive ways. Treatment for the mental side of drug or alcohol addiction often involves a combination of different therapies, both traditional and alternative to achieve these goals.
