An Introduction to Drug Addiction

Get Help for Drug Addictionwith Above It All Treatment Network

When searching for a drug rehab program in California, you may be overwhelmed with the amount of treatment options. In addition to that, it can be difficult to find an addiction treatment program that works with your insurance. Above It All Treatment Network takes care of the process for you. We have an extensive network of drug treatment centers in California that offer a variety of treatment options, which allows us to provide you with truly individualized options when seeking treatment. Don’t wait any longer. Recovery happens when you reach out for help.

Addiction destroys lives—and that is a heartbreaking experience. Struggling with drug addiction can make an individual feel trapped in a bottomless pit, with no light shining in and no clear way out. Watching a loved one or family member go through addiction can feel even more painful, and just as helpless.

However, here is the good news: Addiction is never hopeless, and no addict is ever beyond the help that rehabilitation and recovery can provide.

Recovery is not easy. It requires a lifetime of commitment, and every day brings new battles. It is also not something you should ever pursue solo. Recovery is only possible when you have a support structure in place—friends and family members, but also a clinical drug rehab program. At Above It All, we provide our clients with just that level of structure and support environment that they can count on.

Above It All Treatment Network is honored to provide both encouragement and clinical support to those battling drug addiction and their family members. Every client who enters one of our partner treatment centers immediately feels at home, and at each program the staff truly cares about helping each person find the best path to hope, healing and recovery. Our mission is to provide you with the tools and strategies that support a lifetime of recovery.

Drug Addiction StatisticsWhat Do the Numbers Say?

Drug addiction is a real problem in America today. It comes in many forms and varying degrees of intensity. Often, addiction is the result of illegal drugs, such as meth or heroin. However, more and more frequently, addiction begins with opioid painkillers; physicians sometimes prescribe these drugs to help people manage pain and other symptoms, but these painkillers can present their own side effects and health risks.

According to the National Institutes on Drug Abuse, 23.5 million people, age 12 and older, needed treatment for either drug or alcohol abuse in 2009. Just over 10 percent of these individuals sought the treatment they needed in a specialty facility.

How to Know if Someone Needs Rehab? Signs & Symptoms of Drug Abuse

What to do when someone is addicted?

But how do you know if you—or a loved one—has full-fledged drug addiction? There are several signs to watch out for. Some of these include:

  • Using drugs in ways or in doses other than the way they were prescribed.
  • Going to multiple doctors to receive prescriptions for the same problem.
  • Using medications that were prescribed for other people.
  • Taking medications even after they are no longer needed for a specific medical problem.
  • Taking prescribed medications with alcohol.
  • Needing higher doses or larger quantities of drugs to achieve the same effect you used to get.
  • Being secretive about your drug consumption.
  • Neglecting favorite activities or withdrawing from relationships to spend time getting or using drugs.
  • Trying to quit using a particular substance but not being able to do so successfully.
  • Experiencing withdrawal pains when a drug is not taken—tremors, headaches, nausea, etc.
  • Stealing or borrowing money to afford drugs.

Noticing any of these signs or symptoms in yourself or a loved one points to a drug addiction problem, which exemplifies the urgent need for a supportive addiction recovery program such as Above It All.
