    Alcoholism Treatment in San Juan, PR

    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 in San Juan, PR

    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.
