Alabama OxyContin Rehabs

Successful Oxycontin RehabAs is true with most drugs, OxyContin abuse will take the user on a dwindling spiral and will continue downward until action is taken. Now is the time to take action before it is too late. Quality of life for the user and for those around him will continue to decline. Past failed attempts to overcome addiction only further depresses the individual so it should come as no surprise that fear of losing control further could stop the individual from reaching out and allowing others to help. In the state of Alabama, there is an increased need for workable drug rehabilitation programs.

DEA Facts

The DEA1 (United States Drug Enforcement Administration) reports that Hydrocodone was the most abused pharmaceutical drug in 2005. Other drugs commonly diverted and abused were Oxycontin and Vicodin. The average age of a first time user of an opiate drug is between 15 and 22. Alabama created a law to assist in curbing "doctor shopping" by implementing a Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP). Pharmaceuticals are transported into Alabama mostly by private vehicle. These drugs are also obtained through forged prescriptions and “doctor shopping.” An increasing problem is the obtaining of pharmaceutical drugs via the internet.

Published Reports

Oxycontin rehab needIn an article published in the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners (Vol 16, No. 2 Spring 2001)2, the board stated "...some area pharmacies have posted window signs announcing that they no longer stock OxyContin, and some doctors have decided to no longer prescribe the drug (“Doctors stop prescribing OxyContin,” Birmingham News, April 2, 2001 - Abuse of the painkiller OxyContin has taken almost a dozen lives in Alabama; now some doctors are taking a stand against abusers).

The United States GAO (General Accounting Office) states in a published Prescription Drugs report entitled, "OxyContin Abuse and Diversion and Efforts to Address the Problem, "Several factors may have contributed to the abuse and diversion of OxyContin. The active ingredient in OxyContin is twice as potent as morphine, which may have made it an attractive target for misuse. Further, the original label’s safety warning advising patients not to crush the tablets because of the possible rapid release of a potentially toxic amount of oxycodone may have inadvertently alerted abusers to methods for abuse. Moreover, the significant increase in OxyContin’s availability in the
marketplace may have increased opportunities to obtain the drug illicitly in some states. Finally, the history of abuse and diversion of prescription drugs, including opioids, in some states may have predisposed certain areas to problems with OxyContin."

Oxycontin's Damage to Society

Need for drug rehab center The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA*) at Columbia University shows in a recent report that state governments spend, on average, over 15 percent of their entire budgets on substance abuse and addiction and its consequences. Unfortunately, for every dollar states spend on this problem, 94 cents goes to handle the consequences in public programs such as health care, criminal justice, education, child welfare and mental health -- and only about 2 pennies go to prevention, treatment and research programs to reduce this burden. This upside-down public policy wastes billions in taxpayer dollars at a time when resources are scarce. The state of Alabama is no exception. It quickly becomes self-evident there is a real need for a successful drug addiction treatment.

Treatment Center Changes Needed

Oxycontin rehab treatmentJust in the state of Alabama, there are many different types of drug rehab and treatment facilities. In the United States, there are thousands of drug rehab and treatment centers treating alcoholism to OxyContin addiction. Of course the common goal of all addiction treatment programs is to help end addiction for the individual. In Alabama and across the United States, a variety of techniques and methods are being used. Some of the well known treatment methods in Alabama include the twelve step method, relapse prevention, one-on-one counseling, drug rehabilitation, behavioral modification, cognitive therapy, support groups, sober living, therapeutic communities, AA , NA, inpatient, and outpatient drug rehab programs. There are many types of treatment centers available in Alabama, so making a decision can be difficult. Unfortunately, many uninformed people in Alabama go from rehab to rehab looking for the one that is right for them.

In Alabama, there are many attempts being made to meet the needs of drug addicts, but statistics show success rates to be dismally low. What is needed and wanted is a drug treatment which not only handles physical addiction, but finds the underlying reasons why a person turns to drugs in order to free the person forever. What Alabama addicts, alcoholics and their family, friends and loved ones need is a real and effective drug rehab treatment center; one where they are not on a time schedule or use other drugs to get the addict off the original drugs. The addict needs a reliable proven program where when they are done, their drug addiction is a thing of the past and they are now able to live full productive lives free of the stronghold of drugs or alcohol.

For individuals with a severe drug or alcohol addiction problem, choosing a long-term inpatient treatment program is another key to a successful outcome.

Our
drug rehab treatment program provides people with positive circumstances to increase their chances for a successful recovery. The vast majority of students entering our program, around (80%), are from out of state or from other countries.

Choosing a Drug Rehab and Addiction Treatment Program

People should know what the goal should be of a drug rehab center? Clean and sober for 30 days? While that might be a good short-term goal, many treatment centers and 12 step programs still leave the drug addict fighting a continuing battle with addiction. "Once an addict always an addict"; or it's a mental disorder they can do nothing about. When choosing a drug rehab center for yourself or a loved one from Alabama, it is important to become educated on the different types of drug rehabs and what their end result will be.
