Psychoactive Drug is a drug that affects the body’s Central Nervous System (CNS) and changes how people behave or perceive what is happening around them. The CNS consists of the brain and the spinal cord.
Types of psychoactive drugs:
a) Legal drugs: What is considered as a legal drug in one country can be illegal in another. Alcohol and tobacco are two of the most common legal psychoactive drugs that can lead to Drug Use Disorders (SUD). Just because it is legal, does not make it safe for use. Apart from the harm caused to the individual, legal drugs can harm others in the family or community because of the effect on the person’s thoughts, feelings and behavior. Tobacco use can also cause health problems in others who inhale the second-hand smoke.
b) illegal or illicit drugs: Countries usually have laws and enforcement efforts to restrict the production, distribution and consumption of psychoactive drugs declared as being illegal / illicit. Imprisonment or even death sentences may be listed a punishment for those who break these legal directives. The severity and duration of the punishment and the level of enforcement varies from country to country. )
c) Designer Drugs: Designer drug is a term used to describe PAS which are created by modifying the molecular structure of an illicit drug to a certain degree to get around existing drug laws. MDMA (ecstasy) discussed in the section on stimulants is one such drug. As designer drugs are created in illegally, the chemical composition of the drug and intensity of the effect can vary a lot.
d) Medications: Medications can protect one from diseases (e.g., vaccinations), cure disease (e.g., tuberculosis) or enhance a person’s physical or mental well-being (such as anti-hypertensive or anti- depressant). When medications (e.g., Anxiety relieving medications, pain killers etc.) are NOT used as per the doctor’s instructions, it can lead to many problems including addiction. Risk of SUD problems arises when a person uses the medically prescribed drugs: In a larger dose than what is prescribed (e.g., instead of using 4 mg. of benzodiazepines given, the person may take 8mg)
More frequently than prescribed (e.g., using the cough suppressant few times a M day instead of the night time dosage only); . For a longer period than directed (e.g., continuing to use the pain killer well beyond the duration of a week an instructed by the doctor): and Using medications without medical advice or for reasons other the prescribed (e.g., anti-allergy drugs may be used for the drowsiness it causes).
To conclude, drug abuses may cause death. So be aware of above messages.
Drug Use Related Problems:
Apart from addiction, drug use can also lead to:
Physical and mental health problems: In addition to general deterioration of health, drugs affect particular organs and also cause mental health problems;
Poor health care: Drug users often fail to access medical care and when they do, often fail to follow through with the medical regimen prescribed;
Safety risks: Driving or operating machinery under the influence of drugs increase risk of accidents causing harm, disability or death to the drug user as well as others;
Risks related to unprotected sex: Loss of inhibition, drug induced changes in sexual behavior and disregard for safety messages about condom use increase risk of sexually transmitted diseases including HIV and Hepatitis;
Risks related to injecting use: Using injecting equipment which are not sterile increases transmission of HIV, Hepatitis B and C as well as other blood borne infections. Among people who inject drugs, it was estimated that 13.19% of were HIV positive and about half (529%) were infected with Hepatitis C
Poor work performance leading to decreased productivity at the work spot;
Strained family relationships, emotional trauma, domestic violence and financial instability affects the person using drugs as well as others in the family;
Increased risk of conflicts, violence and crime in the community; and
Risks of suicide, overdose and death.

Why people go back to Drugs again and again?
Relapsing nature of the disease
Relapsing is part of all chronic diseases. People with drug addiction may give up drugs and yet after a period of time return to using Drugs again. This is referred to as relapse. Research shows that relapse rates for drug addiction is similar to that of other chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma. Sometimes stress or being in high-risk situations can cause craving and the person in recovery may take the drugs. If the person uses it just once or for a very short period it is called as a lapse. If the person fails to handle a lapse, the person can return to old pattern of drug use which is referred to as relapse. Relapses are preventable and it is also possible for a person to reestablish a drug addiction free life after a relapse. Relapse is a process and does not take place suddenly. As relapse is a process, with the right effort one can prevent a relapse. Triggers can set off a craving to use drugs.
Triggers can be:
External: people, places or things
Internal: thoughts or feelings
External triggers are such as meeting people who use drugs, being in places where drugs are used or even seeing drug use related paraphernalia such as needles or drugs.
Internal triggers include thoughts about the drug induced effect, thinking about the good times related to drug use or even visualizing drug use. Feeling sad, happy or stressful can also act as triggers. Craving can lead to a lapse. Here, the person may use drugs once or a few times. This is usually followed by a lot of guilt and a sense of failure.
To conclude, it is important to get help before the lapse escalates into a relapse wherein the person returns to regular or problematic drug use as earlier.

Drug Addiction Treatment Process

facility you’ve chosen, you’re more likely to stick with the program and see it through to its end,

Our inpatient treatment program is intended to remove addicts from their old ways of life and
place them into a medically supervised treatment facility. This inpatient care helps to eliminate
stress by removing the individual from temptation and the ability to relapse, both during the
detox and rehabilitation processes. 24-hour medical supervision during detox is provided.
Patients are restricted from contacting family and friends during the first portion of the
rehabilitation process. This allows them to focus solely on their recovery without distractions from the outside world. Over time, family members and close friends may be invited to
participate in visiting days or family therapy sessions. This will help to build the support system that
is so crucial to recovering addicts once they leave the rehab facility.
Best drug addiction treatment center, detox is the first step in a comprehensive rehabilitation
program that offers all the tools required for recovery. The focus of detoxification is
physiological healing after long-term drug addiction – first, through stabilization and then
through detoxification. According to the Reborn Addiction Treatment Center after stabilization,
the focus of detox is on the processes of the body as it rids itself of the drug of choice and
treating the withdrawal symptoms that result.
It is important to note that detox is not a whole treatment for drug addiction no matter what the
drug of choice. Because addiction is both psychological and physical in nature, it is imperative
that patients undergo psychotherapeutic treatment to address the issues of cravings and changes
that were made in the brain by chronic abuse of the drugs. Detox alone may help the patient to
stop abusing drugs and alcohol, but without the core program, follow-up and after-care relapse
will soon follow and a return to full-blown addictive behavior is rarely far behind.
Long-term residential treatment provides care 24 hours a day, generally in non-hospital settings.
The best-known residential treatment model is the therapeutic community based on a modified
12-step approach. The program is designed to treat drug and alcohol problems with lengths of
stay of 3 months. This program focuses on the “re-socialization” of the individual and use the
program’s entire community—including other residents, follow-ups, volunteers, staff, and the
social context—as active components of treatment. Addiction is viewed in the context of an
individual’s social and psychological deficits, and treatment focuses on developing personal
accountability and responsibility as well as socially productive lives. Treatment is highly
structured and can be confrontational at times, with activities designed to help residents examine
damaging beliefs, self-concepts, and destructive patterns of behavior and adopt new, more
harmonious and constructive ways to interact with others. Best drug addiction treatment center
Individualized drug counseling not only focuses on reducing or stopping illicit drug or alcohol
use; it also addresses related areas of impaired functioning—such as employment status, illegal
activity, and family/social relations—as well as the content and structure of the patient’s
recovery program. Through its emphasis on short-term behavioral goals, individualized
counseling helps the patient develop coping strategies and tools to abstain from drug use and
maintain abstinence. The addiction counselor encourages 12-step participation (at least one or
two times per week) and makes referrals for needed supplemental medical, psychiatric,
employment, and other services.
Best drug addiction treatment center, Follow-up care is usually the most important component of
drug addiction treatment.
Think of it this way: While clients are in a residential or full-time drug addiction treatment
program, it is like being in a basic training for the armed services. Once they leave, they have to
apply what they know.
they are in an actual war zone. Suddenly their situation becomes
dangerous, but their skills are new and unpracticed. They now need continued professional help
and informal support from friends and family more than ever, because they are moving out of the
theory and into the practice of living a drug- free life.
While they are completing their residential drug addiction treatment program, they do not face
the temptations of drug-using friends and familiar places where they used to buy and use drugs.
During their treatment program, the other clients and the staff do not expect them to use drugs as
long as they are with them. However, once they go home, they are back to all their old familiar
temptations. Unless they are included in their recovery process, the people who knew them as a
substance abuser will expect them to return to their old habits.
Our follow-up care includes attending support meetings, continuing in individual counseling,
family counseling or marriage counseling with their spouse and other family members, and
applying the skills they learned in their treatment. They are sent to regular leaves for family
reunion & getting familiar in their old places the skills taught in their program might include
relaxation training and using physical exercise to reduce stress. Best drug addiction treatment
center also have to apply techniques they learned to deal with drug cravings and “triggers,”
which are people, events, or experiences that may entice they to use drugs.
A trigger can be
running into old drug-using friends or dealers, being at a party where people are using drugs, or
even feeling a certain emotion that they used to numb with drug use. They can talk about these
situations in individual counseling and at their support meetings.
Each treatment plan contains steps to encourage addiction recovery after discharge. Counseling
for discharge planning helps our patients avoid the “slippery slope” of a potential relapse.
Countercondition treatment relieves the person of craving, replacing it with a neutral, absent
or repulsive response to usual drug cues. Relief from craving and triggers permits patients an
extended period in which to apply other tools and information to recover and prevent relapse.
Our patients learn to focus on true friends, to use people for support when experiencing negative
feelings and to avoid people, places and activities that were strongly associated with drug use.
This discharge plan includes best drug addiction treatment center :
• Attendance at the Day Program and After Care Programs.
• Continued education and support at the Family Support Program if needed, so they
understand how to best support recovery.
• Attend AA/NA meetings on a regular, ongoing basis.
• Develop a relationship with support persons such as a sponsor, counsellor or therapist.
• Develop a crisis management plan.
The recovery process does not end when an individual completes our drug rehabilitation
programs. Continuing support upon completion of drug and alcohol treatment is the key to a
healthy recovery from addiction. Treatment is just the beginning of a lifelong process of growth
and recovery in all areas of life that have been affected by drug addiction and alcoholism.
In order to provide a complete, supportive continuum of care, weekly Aftercare for program
graduates is available. Clients participating in Aftercare have usually completed our residential
treatment programs. Although they have completed a more intensive level of care generally
referred to as primary treatment, clients are more likely to be successful in maintaining
abstinence if they are involved in recovery activities on a long-term basis. Reborn Aftercare
program consists of a weekly group facilitated by an experienced counselor who helps guide
clients in their recovery efforts, assisting them in meeting the goals contained in their continuing
care plans. Best drug addiction treatment center, Aftercare is a forum in which clients may
explore successes, obstacles, and day to day issues that confront them, receiving feedback and
support from the group facilitator and other participants. Graduates of our programs are also
encouraged to attend NA/AA meetings and events. Alumni Association activities include an
other social events, and sponsorship for new clients. The Aftercare program is
designed to provide ongoing support in the form of structured activities that include clients,
