Bel Air, MD, as a community has its own share of substance abuse problems. Fortunately, there is a real understanding of the fact that nobody should have to live their lives helplessly under the influence of a drug or alcohol problem. Addictions ruin lives and entire communities and they must be treated for what they are: chronic mental illnesses. Becoming clean and sober is a lot of hard work, but it is also worthwhile.

Statistics on Drug and Alcohol Abuse in Bel Air, MD

One of the key problem drugs in Bel Air is heroin. It is also the deadliest in the state of Maryland, with some 600 people dying as a consequence of it in 2014. The drug is becoming increasingly strong, which is a particular area of public health concern.

Public health officials have determined that the cost to society of heroin abuse is huge. Addicted people often have very poor dental health and their skin have become diseased as well. They also suffer from a suppressed immune system and from respiratory illnesses. Furthermore, those addicted to heroin are more at risk of transmittable diseases, particularly if they share needles.

If you or someone you care about is currently trying to overcome a substance abuse problem in Bel Air, there is help out there. You might want to consider:

Finding Help for Substance Abuse in Bel Air, MD

Getting help for a drug or alcohol problem usually starts with an intervention. This is because addicted people are usually the last to admit it, having spent the last few months or years living in denial. However, it is not true that only those who admit they need help can benefit from the available help, although it does make things easier.

When addicted patients enter treatment, they have to first go through detox. This is when the body becomes clean and the physical addiction is broken. This should, at all times, be medically supervised, because it comes with some significant and uncomfortable side effects. After detox, the hard work will commence, which is rehab treatment.

Every addicted individual has a personal journey and needs treatment that is geared towards that particular situation. Hence, rehab can be broadly divided into either inpatient, whereby someone stays in a facility and receives intensive, round the clock care; or outpatient, where someone still receives intensive treatment but returns home at the end of each day. Which one of the two is more suitable will depend on the patient’s individual needs, wants, and situation.

Also, rehab must come with significant aftercare. This is a period during which people continue to receive the support that they need often in the form of more specialized services. These include 12 step programs, support groups, sober living facilities, and so on. Aftercare helps people to stay on the path towards recovery and if and when relapse occurs, it helps them to not become fully addicted again, but rather seek additional treatment as and when they need it. Relapse is a common part of the overall recovery period.
