    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    Drug Rehabilitation

    Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.

    Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

    Substance abuse is defined by the continued use of drugs or alcohol despite negative consequences, such as legal or work problems. It can be treated using a variety of services, including therapy and medication.

    Substance abuse treatment is beneficial for:

    • People who have been using drugs or alcohol for a long time.
    • People who have been using drugs or alcohol to cope with stress, anxiety, or depression.
    • People who have a mental health disorder in conjunction with substance abuse.
    • People who continue to use drugs or alcohol despite the harmful effects they cause on their own life and the lives of others.
    • People who have had multiple failed attempts at recovery without medical assistance.

    If you believe that addiction treatment is right for you or a loved one, you can contact your primary care physician, or search for addiction treatment centers in your area. Treatment is beneficial to people who are motivated towards recovery, and who understand the benefits of professional care.

    Alcoholism Treatment at Penobscot Nation Counseling

    Alcoholism is a chronic disease that can be treated with the help of medicine, psychotherapy, lifestyle changes, or a combination of these. There are many different treatment centers available to assist the addict and his family members in overcoming alcoholism.

    Alcohol rehabilitation provides the addicted individual the chance to recover from the illness and resume his responsibilities while maintaining sobriety. This starts with detoxification, an initial process that helps the addict achieve abstinence from alcohol. Treatment can be done either in-house or in a residential setting. It can last from 30 to 90 days or even longer, if necessary. Alcohol rehabilitation is the treatment and management of all aspects of a patient’s addiction to alcohol.

    During detoxification, the addict is first taken through a medically supervised administration of medications that reduces or removes withdrawal symptoms. This is achieved by administering medications like Benzodiazepines (similar to Valium or Xanax) or Corticosteroids (medications like prednisone or cortisone).

    Prevention and treatment of withdrawal symptoms are followed by a treatment regimen that has several stages, including:

    1. Detoxification
    2. Rehabilitation and therapy
    3. Aftercare planning.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

    Opioid addiction is a common form of addiction, often caused by prescription drugs that are abused. Addiction is treated by detoxifying the body and following up with therapies to correct behavior and target the root of the problem.

    Most opioid addiction begins with patients being prescribed painkillers after an injury or surgery. The body becomes used to the chemicals in these medications and soon no longer responds to their presence. As a result, addicts seek out stronger opiate-based medications like Oxycodone to compensate for the lack of effectiveness.

    The most dangerous aspect is that these addictive behaviors often get carried over onto illicit drugs like heroin, which are increasingly potent and result in lower life expectancies.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    Dual Diagnosis treatment centers like Penobscot Nation Counseling provide this treatment tailored to the patient’s specific needs, and they also have a specialized focus on addiction treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often coexists with another mental illness, such as depression or schizophrenia. In other words, drug addiction is only a symptom of a deeper problem.

    When addiction enters into the picture, it can often lead to dangerous consequences in the addict’s life. For example, when addiction is paired with major depression, it can lead to suicidal thoughts or actions. When someone is addicted to drugs or alcohol, they often experience a failure to control their impulses and difficulty decision-making.

    Dual diagnosis for drug addicts can be very effective when treating drug addiction in Old Town, ME.
