Minnesota OxyContin Rehabs

Successful Oxycontin drug rehab programAs 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 Minnesota, there is an increased need for workable drug rehabilitation programs.

DEA Facts

The DEA1 (United States Drug Enforcement Administration) reports that the use of diverted controlled substances in Minnesota continues to be a problem. The most commonly diverted controlled substances from the licit market are Nubain®, Dilaudid®, Ritalin®, Vicodin® (hydrocodone), OxyContin®, codeine combination products, the benzodiazepines, and the anorectic drugs phentermine and phendimetrazie. Nubain is a prescription narcotic that has recently emerged in the Minneapolis area. This narcotic is being used by body builders who mistakenly believe it acts as a steroid. Four deaths have occurred in the Minneapolis area as a result of Nubain® being taken with MDMA and OxyContin® being mixed with cocaine. According to local addicts, Klonopin® is more readily available than in the past from illegal sources and prescriptions are easily obtained from some doctors. In rural Minnesota Klonopin® has appeared under its international, non-United States trade name, "Rivotril®," which suggests its importation from foreign sources. Flunitrazepam, trade name "Rohypnol®," is a long-acting benzodiapine that is typically combined with alcohol or other drugs to produce incapacitation and memory loss similar to an alcohol-induced blackout. Minnesota law enforcement agencies encountered only small amounts of the drug. Its use as a "date rape" drug is not widespread in Minnesota.

Pharmaceutical Diversion: Current investigations indicate that diversion of OxyContin® and Vicodin® continues to be a problem in Minnesota. Primary methods of diversion being reported are illegal sale and distribution by health care professionals and workers, and “doctor shopping” (going to a number of doctors to obtain prescriptions for a controlled pharmaceutical). Benzodiazepines, methylphenidate, and Ritalin® were also identified as being among the most commonly abused and diverted pharmaceuticals in Minnesota.

Published Reports

Oxycontin rehab need

Minnesota Public Radio reported in 2003, A controversial pharmaceutical drug is destroying lives in northern Minnesota. OxyContin is a powerful narcotic painkiller that's been available since 1995. To cancer patients and chronic pain sufferers, OxyContin is a wonder drug that allows them to lead a more normal life. But OxyContin is highly addictive. And when it's snorted or injected, the drug produces a heroin-like and potentially lethal high. Some law enforcement officials in northern Minnesota say OxyContin abuse has become one of their biggest problems.2 (click for full story)

Oxycontin's Damage to Society

Need for drug rehab center in HawaiiThe 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 Minnesota is no exception. It quickly becomes self-evident there is a real need for a successful drug addiction treatment.

Treatment Center Changes Needed

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

In Minnesota, 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 Minnesota 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.

Choosing a Drug Rehab and Addiction Treatment Program

Search for drug rehabPeople 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 Minnesota, it is important to become educated on the different types of drug rehabs and what their end result will be.

Should a chronic drug or alcohol abuser attend a treat program close to home?

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.

For individuals with a severe drug or alcohol addiction problem, choosing a long-term inpatient treatment program is another key to a successful outcome. By providing a new, safe trigger free environment, distanced from past negative associations and surroundings for an extended period of time, the chance for success increases dramatically.
