How to Define a “Drug”
Types of Drugs
A drug includes any medicine, chemical or other substance that when ingested causes physiological changes to the mind and body. There are two primary categories of drugs, illicit drugs and prescription drugs.
Prescription drugs are prescribed by a licensed physician to fight illness and reduce pain, and there are many people who rely on these types of drugs for better health without becoming addicted. However, certain prescription medications can become addictive when abused or used off label.
Illicit drugs are street drugs. These drugs are not used for medicinal purposes, but instead are sought out for some sort of mental or physical high.
Some of the most common forms of addictive drugs include:
- Prescription Pain Medications
Overcoming drug addiction often requires a detoxification period during which an individual will go through withdrawal for the eliminated substance. This is an intense period that should be done under the guidance of an addiction specialist.
Outpatient Drug Addiction Treatment
Individualized Treatment Programs
Our team of highly specialized addiction specialists understand what it takes to help alleviate drug addiction cravings. We use a variety of techniques to treat each drug and patient individually. Below are some of the drugs we primarily treat:
Cocaine Addiction Treatment
This drug is a stimulant that can cause some intense withdrawal symptoms. It can lead to a variety of serious health issues. Detox and treatment are recommended for this addiction.
Heroin Addiction Treatment
Heroin addiction has been an on-going epidemic for families nationwide. This highly addictive substance can cause life-threatening withdrawal symptoms and painful outcomes on families who are struggling with this.
Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment
Meth is a common drug used by Americans nationwide. We offer different treatment options for meth users.
Prescription Addiction Treatment
Prescription drugs are commonly used for different diseases and injuries. They can easily become abused over time, and cause many health and family issues.
Addiction Detox Drug Treatment Center
Serenity At Summit – Union, New Jersey
In cases of extreme addiction to drugs such as opiates, painkillers, prescription drugs, and heroin, it may be necessary to couple drug detox and withdrawal therapy with a drug treatment program plan. Drug detox can help to ease the sometimes violent and potentially deadly withdrawal symptoms associated with detoxing from opiates and other highly addictive substances. Drug detox and withdrawal therapy offers patients more comfort in approaching their sobriety, and gives a better chance of a successful recovery and continued sobriety.
