Alcohol Abuse Treatment Coventry RI

If a person starts regularly drinking in excess, the brain cells' dendrites must grow more receptor cites to take up the amount of alcohol present. Growth of more receptors is called "up-regulation". With extra receptors now existing, these receptors will react if there is insufficient alcohol to be taken up. This is called "withdrawal", and it makes a person ill until they either drink more alcohol or continue to abstain and allow the body-including brain cells-to adjust.

Prescription drug abuse and opiate addiction impact millions of Americans each year. You and/or your loved one are not alone in fighting this debilitating disease. Colonial Management Group, LP (CMG) understands the difficulties of the social stigma associated with being addicted and we believe an independent and constructive lifestyle is attainable. Our priority is to stabilize each patient, individually, by providing medically monitored treatment combined with psychosocial rehabilitation services in our safe and clinically supportive environment. This allows the patient to make positive changes in their lives in an atmosphere of dignity and respect in a therapeutic and appropriate time frame for each individual.

CMG operates a number of nationally recognized and accredited methadone treatment centers dedicated to helping these individuals and their families regain control of their lives. Addiction is recognized as a chronic disease by the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the National Institute of Drug Addiction, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment and many others. As such, addiction has been clinically proven to be managed with appropriate medication and counseling. Our comprehensive treatment programs begin with a detailed psychological assessment and initial treatment plan at induction. Our highly skilled staff then guides patients through a medically supervised stabilization period that integrates individual, group and family counseling along with state of the art medication treatments such as methadone and Suboxone, followed by continuing outpatient care throughout the medical maintenance phase. When the treatment plan is followed, and the medications are taken as directed, this treatment philosophy is proven to suppress symptoms of opiate withdrawal, decrease cravings for opiates, reduce illicit opiate use, block the effects of other opiates, and assist patients in staying committed to treatment and a lifestyle of recovery. We take great pride in treating our patients with dignity and respect in each phase of their treatment experience.

Methadone, as an opiate, is a central nervous system depressant and is not a cure for opiate addiction. It is a pharmacological tool which suppresses withdrawal symptoms, lessens the cravings for opiates and coupled with counseling, facilitates those interpersonal interactions involved in strengthening motivations, changing lifestyles and breaking the cycle of life patterns and stress reactions underlying relapse. Methadone is a long acting, synthetic drug first used for the treatment of drug addiction in the United States in the 1960’s. It has a 40-year history of demonstrated success in the treatment of opiate addiction. When used in proper doses in maintenance treatment, methadone does not create euphoria, sedation or an analgesic effect. Doses must be individually determined by the medical staff. Methadone maintenance is a long-term treatment for opiate addictions of all types. There is no specific length of time in a medicated assisted program that is best for everyone. Since methadone programs are voluntary, the length of time spent in treatment depends greatly on the patient. The longer you stay in treatment, the greater your chances for success. Initially, the patient must visit the clinic regularly and receive his/her medication, yet over time the successful patient earns privileges. These can include fewer clinic visits and eligibility for take home medications as allowed by your state regulations. This allows many patients to lead normal, productive lives, working and caring for their families and enjoying an active social life; all on an outpatient basis so your life is minimally disrupted.

Alcohol Abuse

Jackpine

Friday, September 14, 2007 Alcoholism exists when brain cells have become accustomed to or addicted to alcohol. Alcohol crosses the blood-brain barrier in the brain and reaches sites where dendrites of brain cells take up alcohol molecules into cells, resulting in intoxification.

If a person starts regularly drinking in excess, the brain cells' dendrites must grow more receptor cites to take up the amount of alcohol present. Growth of more receptors is called "up-regulation". With extra receptors now existing, these receptors will react if there is insufficient alcohol to be taken up. This is called "withdrawal", and it makes a person ill until they either drink more alcohol or continue to abstain and allow the body-including brain cells-to adjust. This is called "down regulation".

Specifically, the added receptor cites on the end of brain cell dentrites will decrease in number. The decrease of receptors for alcohol occurs because the person is no longer providing alcohol for extra receptors to have to take up.

Alcoholism is an addiction at the cellular and molecular level, like other drugs. If a person stops drinking, they will be ill while the receptors for alcohol decrease in the brain and the body adjusts. Thereafter, a person must slowly begin to rebuild their lives in a sober manner which can be done, especially with the support of rehab centres and support groups.

It is worth the effort to stop drinking in order to next experience life as a sober person. We only have one chance to live this life here on earth; best to live it sober and healthy because even an intoxicated person knows in his/her heart that a sober and healthy life is the right way to live.

Alcoholics may feel badly about themselves and their alcoholism because they know there is a better, healthy way to live. There is always hope for a sober and good life. And there is nonjudgemental assistance.

There are many rehab treatment ...
