Oxycontin, a legally prescribed drug by doctors for pain management, is now increasingly abused throughout Michigan due to easy availability. Many people taking Oxycontin become addicted to it and continue to take/need the drug after a doctor stops prescribing it. This results in them going to family and friends’ medicine cabinets or even going to the street to purchase it from the local drug dealer. Oxycontin is extremely expensive on the street going for as much as $80 to $100 dollars a pill. The person addicted to Oxycontin can no longer afford this drug and then realizes they can buy heroin on the street for much less and get the same effect. Due to the similar effects between Oxycontin and heroin is the reason why Oxycontin is considered a gateway drug to heroin. A person addicted to either Oxycontin or heroin gets to the point they must take the drug to just function daily. Many addicted feel hopeless and that there are no solutions on how to break this downward spiral of addiction. Narconon Arrowhead has the solution. Narconon Arrowhead has an effective inpatient drug and alcohol rehab with a 70% success rate along with drug education to over 65,000 youth about the realities and consequences of drugs and alcohol.
Many people addicted to prescription drugs or street drugs commit crimes they would never have imagined before becoming addicted. During 2006, there were 47,227 drug offenses known to Michigan police. In 2007, 38.2% of the Federally-sentenced defendants in Michigan had committed drug offenses. Michigan has created organizations to help with the drug epidemic with the establishment of programs such as the HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area), the Partnership for a Drug-Free Michigan and the Michigan Meth Watch. These are not rehabilitation facilities; these are preventative organizations dealing with substance abuse and how to avoid a life of addiction. For a person already caught in the cycle of addiction, inpatient rehab is the answer for that person to regain a drug-free, productive, responsible, ethical and happy life.
Once a person has become addicted, they are no longer in control of their life. Drugs are controlling every aspect of their life at this point. Finding ways and means of getting and using more drugs consumes that person where all other aspects of their day to day life falls to the wayside. When a person has become addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, there are three barriers that must be handled for a person to have long term recovery. These three are cravings, depression and guilt. If these three barriers are not handled a persons’ chances of long term recovery are greatly reduced. a If a person is trying to quit using drugs and/or alcohol and is hit with a craving and is not in an inpatient rehab, there will nothing to stop them going out and searching for drugs to relieve that physical craving no matter how much they DO NOT want to use drugs or drink. Therefore an inpatient rehab not only stops that person going and getting drugs, they have qualified professionals to get them through that craving and understand why these cravings continue to arise and have the solution for them.
A person does not end up in rehab after one drug use even though upon that first use they may become addicted. The downward spiral of addiction follows sooner or later in the loss of family, friends, money, employment and finally total loss of self respect. Therefore it is absurd to think if person has been using drugs for 6 months up to multiple years of drug abuse, that they can be cured overnight. Once the physical cravings are handled and the person is able to focus on his or her environment instead of his body the depression and guilt can be handled.
The depression and guilt a person feels from their drug addicted lifestyle can push them into a relapse even though they are no longer experiencing physical cravings. With an inpatient rehab the professionals will be able to help guide that person through his past and present guilt and depression so when they are finished with the rehab they will step back into the world with a clean body and clear mind and the tools to lead the successful life everyone deserves.
