Mississippi OxyContin Rehabs

worried womanAs 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 Mississippi, there is an increased need for drug rehabilitation centers.

DEA Facts

The DEA1 (United States Drug Enforcement Administration) reports that:

  • The diversion of pharmaceutical drugs is a popular means for obtaining drugs illegally.
  • Law enforcement officials report OxyContin abuse continues to be a viable threat.
  • Everything from prescription forgeries to doctor-shopping aids in the diversion process; however, an increasing number of diverted pharmaceutical drugs are transported into Mississippi from Mexico and Southwest Border towns.
  • Internet pharmacies are becoming more popular, despite inflated prices, due to the sites not requiring a prescription or a doctor’s examination.
  • Methadone clinics in neighboring states continue to be a source for the abuse of Methadone by Mississippi residents.
    Published Reports

    In a report to Congressional Requesters, The GAO (The United States General Accounting Office) wrote a paper entitled, OxyContin Abuse and Diversion and Efforts to Address the Problem. In it, it states: The DEA relies primarily on reports from its field offices to determine where abuse and diversion are occurring. DEA officials stated that the initial areas that experienced OxyContin abuse and diversion problems included rural areas within 8 states—Alaska, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. In July 2002, DEA told us that it learned that OxyContin abuse and diversion problems had spread into larger areas of the initial 8 states, as well as parts of 15 other states (including Mississippi), to involve almost half of the 50 states.48 According to DEA officials, while DEA field offices continue to report OxyContin as a drug of choice among abusers, OxyContin has not been and is not now considered the most highly abused and diverted prescription drug nationally.49 OxyContin is the most abused single-entity prescription product according to those DEA state and divisional offices that report OxyContin abuse.2

    The Damage to Society

    Man in handcuffs under arrestIn the State of Mississippi, 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.

    Treatment Center Changes Needed

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

    In Mississippi, 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 Mississippi 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

    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 Mississippi, 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?

    Man at wall, deep in thoughtDrug and alcohol addiction typically involves habitual routines in the environmental scope of the individual, i.e. the locations of their drug or alcohol use, the people they associated with in the activities of drug or alcohol use, etc. Drug or alcohol addiction is not just drug and alcohol use, it revolves around people and things in their immediate environment which help to trigger the addictive behavior. The abusers location & routines of drug and alcohol use further trigger drug and alcohol use. It is the constant and seemingly unstoppable drug or alcohol use 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 drugs and alcohol.

    The above factor should not be over looked when considering a treatment center location. The first 2 weeks of treatment are always the most difficult & There many factors at work to 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 & beneficial changes in life, such as the birth of a child or a new job does not guarantee the individual will have no thoughts of missing past negative activities such as, drug or alcohol use, drug or drinking acquaintances 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, it is just all that they have known for some time. If the abuser is close to home when overwhelming feelings manifest themselves, there is a good chance he or she will leave and get back to what they know, drug addiction, as it is not very far away . Due to these factors, attending a drug rehab close to home is seldom the correct treatment option for chronic drug or alcohol abusers. It is extremely therapeutic to be distanced from their former association with drug dealers, bars, the cabinet where the alcohol was kept, the cigar box where the cocaine was stored, etc. All these triggers make the task of sobriety seem insurmountable to the chronic drug or alcohol abuser 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. 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.

    Our 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.
