Michigan OxyContin Rehabs

Successful Oxycontin drug rehab treatmentAs 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 Michigan, there is an increased need for workable drug rehabilitation programs.

DEA Facts

The DEA1 (United States Drug Enforcement Administration) reports that OxyContin® demand is increasing throughout the state. The Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS) program indicates that the state’s OxyContin® prescriptions have increased by 31 percent. Michigan is ranked number 30 for its OxyContin® comsumption per capita. Straits Area Narcotic Enforcement (SANE) Task Force, located in Cheboygan County, Michigan reported that 90 percent of the problems encountered are related to OxyContin®. The number of charges for OxyContin® abuse has also increased. In 2002, there were 37 charges made as compared to 60 in 2003. OxyContin® abusers are obtaining this drug through break-ins and robberies, doctor shopping, stealing from legitimate patients, selling parts of legitimate prescriptions, home break-ins and forged prescriptions.

Pharmaceutical Diversion: The abuse and diversion of prescription drugs, particularly hydrocodone, oxycodone (Lortab, Lorcet, Vicodin, and Oxycontin), and methadone, is increasing throughout the state. Detroit is a source city for OxyContin that is transported and distributed to users in Kentucky and West Virginia for a high profit margin. Primary methods of diversion are illegal sales, “doctor shopping”, pharmacy break-ins and robberies, stealing from legitimate patients, selling legitimate prescriptions, illegally obtaining them from the streets, illegitimate prescriptions, home break-ins, forged prescriptions, and Internet pharmacies.

Published Reports

Oxycontin rehab need

OxyContin Abuse News did a story in February 2002, stating that "Kentucky is among 15 states to have a prescription drug-monitoring program, with half a dozen other states considering them and advocates pushing for a national system to link the sate databases. Congress proved $2 million for this year to start prescription drug monitoring systems but advocates feel that is not good enough. The Supreme Court ruled in 1977 that state officials could track prescriptions as long as the information is kept private. Included in the 15 states that now have tacking programs are California, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, and Washington."2

The National Conference Of State legislatures published a page called The Double Life of OxyContin: Miracle Painkiller and Illicit Street Drug - What are States Doing?: In it it reports, "Michigan enacted a number of laws in the 2002 session to establish an electronic drug monitoring system, to amend scope of practice laws for pharmacists and to strengthen prescribing and dispensing standards for controlled substances. These standards include requiring pharmacists to make "good faith" judgment about dispensing controlled substances. For example, the lack of consistency in the doctor-patient relationship or requests for unusual dosages should alert pharmacists to the potential for abuse. Michigan also passed legislation to create and distribute an informational book on pain and to develop and conduct educational programs for health professionals who dispense controlled substances. The program must include information on processing allegations of wrongdoing and the disciplinary process. And finally, Michigan passed legislation to establish the Pain Management Education and Controlled Substances Antidiversion Fund in the state treasury."3

The Damage to Society

Need for Oxycontin drug rehabIn the State of Michigan, the effects of drug and alcohol abuse goes way past the the damage done to the addicts themselves. In terms of time lost on the job, to the health system inundated by illness and overdoses to communities harmed by the crime rate caused by addicts looking to steal anything in order to get their next fix, to families living a nightmare as they watch helplessly as their loved one goes further down the chutes. The rollercoaster of emotions, concern and anger seems like a never ending ride the abuser puts his friends and family through. Failures in the past with drug rehab centers further numb the addict to any hope of a future without drugs. It truly can appear hopeless. It quickly becomes self-evident there is a real need for a successful drug addiction treatment.

Treatment Center Changes Needed

Just in the state of Michigan, 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 Michigan and across the United States, a variety of techniques and methods are being used. Some of the well known treatment methods in Michigan 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 Michigan, so making a decision can be difficult. Unfortunately, many uninformed people in Michigan go from rehab to rehab looking for the one that is right for them.

In Michigan, 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 Michigan 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.

Should an Oxycontin addict attend a treatment program close to home?

Decision to enter drug rehab

Addiction is not just drug and alcohol use, it revolves around people and things in their immediate environment which help to trigger that addictive behavior. The abuser's location and routines of drug use further trigger drug use. It is the constant and seemingly unstoppable use of drugs and the hopelessness of day to day existence which perpetuates the problem and inhibits the native desire to stop ruining their life through the use of self medicating.

The above factor should not be over looked when considering a drug rehab treatment center location. The first two weeks of treatment are always the most difficult. There many factors at work which make this so. In addition to what has been covered above, a more basic factor is this - people are creatures of habit. Even overwhelmingly positive and beneficial changes in life, such as the birth of a child or a new job do not guarantee the individual will have no thoughts of missing past negative activities such as drug or alcohol use, their drug buddies and other associated activities. Factually this is the normal reactive auto response of most human beings - to do what they are familiar with - good or bad. It is not really that they yearn for these things, but it is all that they have known for some time. If the abuser is close to home when the overwhelming feelings manifest themselves, there is a good chance they will leave and get back to what they know, drug addiction. Due to these factors, attending a drug rehab close to home is seldom the correct treatment option for chronic drug abusers. It is extremely therapeutic to be distanced from their former association with the medicine cabinet, bars, the cigar box where their staff was stored, etc. All these triggers make the task of sobriety seem insurmountable to the chronic user as these triggers continuously stimulate a reminder of their past addictive behaviors.

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