Dealing with an Addiction in Biloxi, MS

Someone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol is usually the last person to seek help for it. Rather, an intervention usually has to be staged by people who care about them, or even the courts. Once that has been done, it is time for them to seek the treatment they so desperately need.

Treatment has to start with a period of detox. This is a period during which any last remaining toxins from the abused substance are removed from the body. This is accompanied by significant withdrawal symptoms. While such symptoms are usually not dangerous (with some exceptions), they are hugely uncomfortable and many people tend to return to their chosen substance at this time. Because they then also return to their usual dosage, they are at huge risk of getting an overdose. It is for this reason that detox should always be medically supervised.

Following detox, people enter rehab treatment. In Biloxi, this is offered either on an inpatient or an outpatient basis. Which type of treatment is better would depend on the individual. Similarly, how long treatment must go on will vary for each person. During rehab, patients take part in individual counseling such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and group therapy, where they can learn with and from their peers. Where possible, family therapy is also offered, as this helps the recovering patients to rebuild their support network.

Finally, aftercare has to be offered. Relapse is common. In fact, most would see it as an integral part of the entire journey towards recovery. However, with proper aftercare in place, the chance of relapse is significantly reduced and, if it does happen, it is flagged up before it spirals out of control again. Aftercare includes a continuation of therapy, 12-step programs, support groups, sober living facilities, and more.

Put together, this type of overall treatment offers hope to the many people in Biloxi who are affected by a substance abuse problem.
