  • Chronic heroin users, especially those who inject the drug, may develop infection of the heart lining and valves, abscesses, and liver disease.
  • Alcohol affects the area of the brain responsible for movement and balance, resulting in the staggering, off-balance swagger that is referred to as "falling-down drunk."
  • Anabolic steroid users sometimes "pyramid" stack in cycles of 6 to 12 weeks, whereby they gradually increase doses of the drugs and then slowly decrease them to zero.
  • Drug injectors who do not enter drug rehab are up to six times more likely to become infected with HIV than those who enter and remain in treatment.
  • Crack is easy and cheap to produce, making it readily available and affordable.

Outpatient Treatment

Drug rehabilitation services which are delivered on an outpatient basis are readily available to addicted individuals who have circumstances which prevent them from being able to take part in an inpatient rehabilitation center. An outpatient drug rehab facility provides many of the same services as an inpatient program, but allows for flexibility as opposed to an inpatient drug rehab center where the person is required to remain at the treatment program until treatment has been fully completed. Outpatient drug rehab is also available for those who have completed residential or inpatient treatment but also need a thorough aftercare and relapse prevention program which will offer further support and therapy to help them remain clean and sober.

Co-Occurring Mental with Substance Abuse Issues

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders must address both issues in order to recover completely. Some individuals take drugs to alleviate symptoms of mental health problems, and some people take drugs which then, in turn, causes symptoms which are identical to mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression. Addiction treatment professionals know how to differentiate between the two, and can work with clients to properly treat real mental health problems in tandem with any other substance abuse treatment that is done with the person. This has proven to be effective in keeping individuals with mental health issues off of drugs and alcohol and mentally stable and productive.
