  • Drug Overdose Facts
  • Chronic abuse of alcohol can impair white blood cell function and making the abuser more susceptible to infection.
  • In the not so distant past, most drug overdoses were due to illicit narcotics such as heroin; additionally, most of the past drug overdose deaths were reported to occur in big cities. Currently, the rate of drug overdoses that are related to street drugs are reported to have decreased drastically throughout the U.S.
  • Drug rehab programs for drug addicted criminal offenders who are living in or re-entering the community should include strategies to prevent and treat serious, chronic medical conditions, such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, and tuberculosis.
  • Alcohol withdrawal which is considered severe can produce delirium tremens (DTs) which produces profound confusion, hallucinations, and severe autonomic nervous system over-activity.
  • The drug overdose epidemic is centered in middle-aged America; because this particular population is "not supposed to abuse drugs"; the media virtually ignores this dire situation.

Detoxification

Detoxification is usually the 1st step in getting off drugs. It makes it possible for a person to be in a supervised environment while they go through withdrawal symptoms for drugs and/or alcohol. There are various types of detoxification. Theyrange from drug-free to medically supervised. A prevalent mistake that many addicts make is to believe that detox is enough to kick their habit. This is rarely the case. All detox does is get a person through the withdrawal when they stop using. It is usually recommended that detox be followed up with some type of treatment plan to learn the root of why an individual was using drugs in the first place.
