Common Signs of Drug Addiction
Drug addiction is increasingly common across the United States. At Serenity Grove, we recognize casual drug use can quickly become a habit. Habitual drug use can quickly turn into an addiction. If you or someone in your life is living with addiction, know you are not alone. Drug use turns into addiction when a person’s brain becomes reliant on a drug, alcohol, or compulsive behavior.
Most prescription and illicit drugs work by altering brain chemistry. They increase dopamine, serotonin, and other chemicals that provide a rush of pleasure to the brain and body. Over time, consistent drug use lowers the brain’s natural production of these chemicals. When this happens, the brain needs drugs to maintain chemical levels. Common signs of drug addiction include:
- Flu-like symptoms during withdrawal
- Drug-seeking behavior
- Sudden changes in mood
- Panic attacks
- Financial trouble
- Lack of interest in favorite hobbies
- Changes in work or school performance
- Sleep issues
- Changes in eating habits
- Changes in physical appearance: bloodshot eyes, clammy skin, dry skin
- Drug cravings
Today, shame, guilt, and other stigmas often accompany drug addiction. Addiction, however, is the brain’s response to various substances. At Serenity Grove, we help people recover with non-judgmental, individualized treatment plans.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Drug Addiction
Today, 50% of people living with addiction have co-occurring mental health disorders. Doctors and therapists no longer believe addiction exists on its own. Instead, in most cases, drug or alcohol use stems from self-medicating and self-soothing for co-occurring disorders like depression, anxiety, ADHD, or bipolar disorder. Serenity Grove uses dual diagnosis for comprehensive, holistic drug addiction treatment.
Our clients can participate in various levels of care, ranging from inpatient to outpatient rehab. Our programs focus on lifelong support for healthy recovery. Programs at Serenity Grove include:
- 12-step meetings
- Life skills training
- Anger management training
- Trauma therapy
- Individual, family, and group therapy
- Experiential therapy
- Motivational interviewing
- Yoga and other alternative therapies
- Medically assisted detox, including NAD+ and Suboxone
Our wide range of traditional and alternative therapies help clients find the care that is right for them. With 24/7 nursing care, our staff monitors vitals, electrolytes, and overall health during detox. Our medically assisted detox programs lessen withdrawal symptoms and improve overall health.
Our therapies help clients manage stress, heal from trauma, and improve relationships. With individual, group, and family therapy ranging from CBT to experiential therapy, clients at Serenity Grove reconnect with themselves, their loved ones, and create new connections in sober communities.
