  • Drug Overdose Facts
  • Heroin abusers often combine it with other drugs, such cocaine or methamphetamine with heroin (known as speedballing), or use alcohol, marijuana, or tranquilizers to enhance the high and blunt effects of withdrawal.
  • An user who chooses to inject cocaine puts themselves at risk of transmitting or acquiring HIV infection/ AIDS if needles or other injection equipment are shared.
  • When an individual is experiencing a drug overdose, observers should stay with the individual and help them to remain calm by moving them to a quiet area; if the individual suffering from a drug overdose is unconscious, they should be placed in a recovery position while emergency medical help is summoned.
  • A drug overdose can occur when a person accidentally or intentionally consumes more of a drug than their body can sufficiently tolerate.
  • Ecstasy is often taken for the feelings of well-being, stimulation, and the distortions in time and sensory perceptions that it produces.

Seniors/Older Adult Services

Whether it is evident or not, seniors and older adults comprise a considerable percentage of individuals in the United States who struggle with drug and/or alcohol abuse and addiction. As the baby boomer generation ages, this will become an even bigger problem with an even bigger need for drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which are prepared to treat seniors and older adults who are in need of treatment for addiction issues. Seniors and older adults are faced with many physical challenges as a result of their age, which can have an impact on treatment outcome if not addressed concurrently. It is beneficial for seniors and older adults to find rehabilitation before any long term consequences occur.
