  • Drug Overdose Facts
  • Alcohol is an irritant to the stomach, and it is common for someone who drinks in excess to vomit putting the person in danger of choking on their own vomit. This can cause death by asphyxiation in a person who is not conscious because of intoxication.
  • High doses of crystal meth can cause overdose and death.
  • In certain people, an interaction that could result in a potentially fatal overdose can take place when alcohol is mixed with cough medicines that contain dextromethorphan; unfortunately, there is no possible way to predict who will experience this particular, life-threatening interaction, and who will not.
  • After completing residential drug rehab individuals should enroll in an outpatient treatment program and/or aftercare programs will help to reduce the risk of relapse once a patient leaves the residential setting.
  • Children of alcoholics are more likely to have an impaired ability to express themselves which can hinder their school performance, peer relationships, ability to begin and sustain intimate relationships, and hamper performance on job interviews.

Detoxification

Detoxification is normally the 1st step in getting off drugs. It permits 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. Theyvary from drug-free to medically supervised. A frequent mistake that quite a few addicts make is to think that detox is sufficient to kick their habit. This is rarely the case. All detox does is get someone through the withdrawal when they stop using. It is always recommended that detox be followed up with some type of treatment plan to find out the root of why an individual was using drugs in the first place.
