About Us! What is Detox?

It’s never to late, Break the Addiction..

Abuse Or Addiction Treatment

You Have The Power To Quit On Your Own

While the two words have been interchanged quite frequently, there is a difference between addiction and drug or alcohol abuse. The reality is drug and alcohol abuse can be as damaging as addiction. Addiction, simply put, is when a person cannot stop using or abusing a substance under their own power.

Drug Abuse

Drug abuse, chronic, is unfortunate. However, it is still considered to be less devastating than drug addiction. If the chronic use is prolonged, it can be just as damaging as an addicted life. For this reason, we at Sprout Health California Detox offer treatment programs for people who struggle with either issue. If you are wondering how drug abuse is classified, consider if the following has occurred with yourself or anyone that you know:

  • The person has experienced legal problems associated with drug abuse, or, they have been arrested for being under the influence.
  • They have caused physical harm to someone else by their abusive behavior when under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • There is an inability to focus and get things done in a timely manner work, home, or school. The individual’s ability to manage things has been compromised.

Drug Addiction

If you or anyone you know has experienced the following issues in the past year, you may meet the criteria that defines addiction:

  • Withdrawal symptoms even though using the drug of your choice.
  • Using larger and larger amounts consistently to achieve the same psychological effects.
  • A waning interest in old hobbies and interests. The individual, or you, simply does not have the same level of interest in hobbies or other things that used to be of interest.
  • A social withdrawal from friends and family. Other people may also notice that the individual seems to have withdrawn from their work duties as well.
  • Continued drug use even though it is causing problems.

The reality is that addiction does not start overnight. It happens over time. Depending on the drug or substance, it takes a while to build up tolerance and cravings. Some drugs, when taken, will cause an individual to develop an instantaneous craving. With others, it happens over a longer period of time. Abuse generally happens before addiction.

Signs of an Inability to Stop Using Drugs or Alcohol

Anyone struggling with an addiction will sooner or later show it. First, they will be unable to stay away from their drug of choice. They have an addiction, and will find it any way they can. The body will tend to build up a tolerance for the drug while the body goes through withdrawal because the addict has to use more and more to achieve the same high.

Recovery from Addiction

Recovering from addiction can be a fragile thing. For one, it is a disease. Drugs can alter the way the brain processes information. Addiction can be described as chronic, progressive, relapsing, or primary. Drugs alter the way neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) are received and sent from cell to cell. People may argue the point that addiction is a disease because they claim that drug use is a voluntary matter.

The changes that occur in the brain create the compulsion and need to continue using the drug even though the addict knows there are negative consequences to be realized. The truth is there are brain changes with respect to any addiction, otherwise addiction would not occur. Some people may even be hardwired for addiction as a result of their biology and genes. They may become addicted from the very first time when using a mood-altering drug.

Mood-altering drugs change feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. They possess the ability to distort the addicts sense of reality. What people become addicted to are the drug’s mood-altering effects. It is very important to ascertain how drugs have played a role in a person’s life when they are seeking treatment. This way, proper treatment can be prescribed. Drugs meet an individual’s needs, such as relaxation or reduction of behavioral inhibitions etc. Knowing what a person needs, as a result of their addiction, allows clinicians to address those issues through behavioral therapies as well as medications.

If you or someone you know is abusing drugs, realize that it can spiral out of control in time and become an addiction. There is no good to be derived from abusing drugs, whatever the abuser claims. Get the help you or a loved one needs before abuse becomes addiction.
