Individuals seeking treatment for a loved one with a chronic drug addiction problem should be educated on the subject of drug addiction. The following information was compiled to fulfill this need. We hope you find it helpful.

To truly understand the type of treatment that is appropriate for individuals with a chronic drug addiction problem it is important to understand the mechanisms that are at work. Drug addiction could be defined as; a constant and unrelenting effort to obtain drugs in order to alter the feelings and perceptions of the person using them. Another facet of drug addiction is; the brain adapts to the presence of drugs and make adjustments accordingly. Because of these chemical changes in the brain due to the constant use of drugs, when a drug abuser attempts to halt their drug use the brain signals the individual that the drug is needed. This is a major cause of drug cravings. All drug abusers experience drug cravings for some period of time after ceasing drug use, that is a basic fact. This phenomenon will diminish over time as brain function returns to normal. Drug addiction typically involves habitual routines in the environmental scope of the individual i.e. the locations they use drugs, the people they hang out with, etc. In other words drug addiction is not just drug use, it also revolves around people and things in their immediate environment which help to reinforce the addictive behavior. The individual's proximity & routines therein are what help to hold their addiction in place. It is the constant negative activities of their day to day life that perpetuates the problem and inhibits the native desire to stop ruining their life through the use of drugs.

The above factors should not be over looked when considering a treatment center location. The first 2 weeks of treatment are always the most difficult. There are a lot of mechanisms at work to make this so. In addition to what has been covered above, a more basic factor is; people are creatures of habit. Changes in a persons life even when they are overwhelmingly positive & beneficial, does not guarantee the individual will have no thoughts of missing past negative activities such as, drugs, drug acquaintances and drug activities. Believe it or not this is the normal reactive auto response of most human beings; to do what they are familiar with good or bad. It is not really that they miss these things, it is just all that they have known for some time. Due to these factors, attending a drug rehab close to home is seldom the correct treatment option for chronic drug abusers. It is extremely therapeutic to be distanced from the people they used drugs with, drug dealers, and the surroundings that can continue to stimulate their past addictive behaviors.

For individuals with a severe drug addiction problem, choosing a long term inpatient drug rehab program may be another significant key to a successful outcome.
