Heroin’s easy availability and high addictive qualities not only ruin the lives of those who are addicted, but also those who love and care for them. To throw into the mix of illicit drugs is Oxycontin, legally prescribed by doctors for pain management, now considered a gateway drug to heroin due to the similar effects it has on a person. 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.
In 2007 there were 44,974 felony drug offenses prosecuted in New York and approximately 40.9% of the Federally-sentenced defendants in New York had committed drug offenses. New York has created organizations to help with the drug epidemic with the establishment of programs such as the HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area), the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) and Community Enforcement Narcotics Teams (CNET). 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.
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.
