Drug Addiction Facts

  • Stimulant drugs are one of the few causes of cardiac death in otherwise normal children, making it impossible to detect the risk before it happens.
  • Codeine is a legal prescription drug but it is addictive, with prolonged use resulting in the same adverse effects as any other illicit drug.
  • The specific cardiovascular problems which may be caused by prescription stimulants have been highlighted in the FDA's "black box" warnings which include the risk of heart defects, heart attacks, stroke, high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and sudden death in people with a prior history of heart related problems.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders during treatment to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are several drug and alcohol rehab programs who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to be able to not merely become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

It is vital that gays and lesbians acquire quality treatment services in a treatment environment which is discreet and has treatment professionals available to them who understand the unique problems that they experience in life. Because drug use for gays and lesbians is sometimes triggered by the challenges they face because of their sexual preference, a facility that can help them handle these issues and give them the confidence they may have lacked before arriving in treatment is usually a crucial aspect of recovery for gay and lesbian clients.
