Understanding Addiction

Common Signs and Symptoms of Stimulant Addiction

Signs of stimulant addiction develop progressively as the effects of the substance become increasingly prominent on the brain.

  • Physical dependency: Stimulants cause a higher secretion of dopamine, the neurotransmitter responsible for the state of balance for many bodily functions. In time, the brain requires more of the drug to function normally.
  • Larger doses: Stimulants are known to weaken brain cells and structures responsible for dopamine secretion. To experience the same “high” effect, the addict increases the dosage.
  • Violent outbursts: Extended use deteriorates neurons and brain structures leading to various chemical imbalances. The inequity can cause a person to become emotionally unstable and trigger poor impulse control.
  • Using to cope: Feeling the need to take stimulants to cope with work, family, or personal problems indicates that psychological dependency has taken hold of an individual.

Considering the severity of health consequences caused by stimulant addiction, it’s understandable why you need to act quickly to get help for yourself or your loved one. Seek professional help from Concise Recovery to learn how to live a rich and fulfilling life without relying on a chemical crutch!

How is Stimulant Addiction Treated?

If you have an addiction to crack cocaine or ‘rock’ then visiting a treatment center like Concise Recovery will give you the very best chance of a full recovery.

Treatment centers are in-patient facilities, which means the patients stay on the premises in special housing while they receive treatment. They will receive a combination of counseling, advice, support, and medication to help them through the process of recovery.

The typical program lasts upwards of 28 days to ensure that patients are eased into the recovery process instead of being rushed through it. Most medical experts believe that a treatment program that spans over 90 days can produce long-lasting results for the patient.

Did you know most insurance will help pay for rehab?

What Are the Common Withdrawal Symptoms?

Abruptly ceasing the usage of stimulants may trigger effects that include:

  • Cold flashes
  • Paranoia
  • Diarrhea
  • Muscle aches
  • Insomnia

Concise Recovery will provide you with the necessary assistance to cope with these withdrawal symptoms in a professional, safe, medical environment. Staff will be available round-the-clock to respond to any severe withdrawal effects that may occur as a result of a withdrawal program, ensuring your safety and health at all times.

I will never go back!

Most insurance will pay for rehabilitation. Concise Recovery works with most PPO & POS insurance policies that offer out-of-network benefits. We currently do not accept Medi-Cal or Medicare. Contact our staff today to learn how you can verify your insurance.

Dual disorders, or co-occurring disorders, happen when a person suffers from a mental health disorder alongside a substance use disorder. The two disorders often feed into one another, creating a vicious cycle that may feel impossible to break. Dual diagnosis is the process of diagnosing both disorders and creating a treatment plan to address them simultaneously. Since a mental health disorder can contribute to addiction and vice versa, both issues must be addressed together to achieve lasting recovery.

After patients have completed the rehabilitation process with Concise Recovery, they have the option of residing in our sober living community. Sober living allows a person to transition back into daily life while living in a safe location free of addictive substances. Residents in sober living communities are expected to look after themselves and keep up with responsibilities such as paying rent, completing chores, and abiding by a curfew.

Relapse is a very common part of the recovery journey. Research has shown that more than half of those who complete rehab treatment for drug or alcohol addiction will relapse within the first year. However, relapsing does not mean you have failed, and with Concise Recovery’s continuous care through our sober living program, you can achieve long-term recovery and keep control over your lifestyle.

Inpatient rehabilitation, or residential treatment, means that patients reside at an addiction treatment facility for a set length of time. With inpatient care, patients have 24/7 access to recovery specialists and can heal in a safe and controlled environment. Outpatient care is when patients receive addiction treatment services but can still return to the comfort of their own homes at the end of the day. Outpatient care allows patients to have a more flexible schedule and still live their daily life outside of a treatment center.

The rehabilitation process can vary depending on your needs and the best timeline to suit your healing. Most addiction rehabilitation programs vary in length from 30-day programs to 60-days to 90-days. Contact us to learn more.

At Concise Recovery, you will start your healing journey with one of our accredited sub-acute detox programs, which take place in luxurious, private facilities, staffed by industry experts. From there, our team will create an individualized treatment plan to best fit your recovery needs. Addiction recovery can include inpatient care, outpatient care, therapies, and aftercare through our sober living program.
