Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol is a highly physiologically damaging substance that affects people regardless of age, gender, race or health. If a person abuses alcohol he or she is at risk of multiple factors. In the beginning stages of drinking, an alcoholic can suffer minor liver damage, blackouts, coma, stomach problems, and slurred speech to name a few effects. When entering long-term alcohol abuse his or her health problems can be but are not limited to liver damage, poisoning, nerve problems, blood pressure problems, strokes, injuries, and memory loss.
 
Alcohol impairs the brains natural and rational functioning which causes confusion and coordination problems. Once a person is dependent on alcohol and is withdrawing he or she can become very anxious, agitated, depressed, withdrawn and angry. The longer he or she continues on this path of alcoholism the larger the risk of permanent consequences and irreversible medical and mental health issues. It is not recommended a person attempt detoxification without medical supervision. Health problems such as seizures can occur.
 
Our treatment program for alcoholism rehabilitation begins with a thorough medical evaluation; depending on the alcohol ingestion level medically managed detoxification may be necessary. Treatment focuses on identifying the of loss control over alcohol, followed by counseling to assist the alcoholic in understanding the scope and severity of the life issues that contributed to their drinking and develop more productive ways of managing the uncomfortable feelings that trigger urges to drink. 
 
At Eaton Canyon Treatment Center each client receives comprehensive addiction education, understanding of how alcohol affects the brain function, self-esteem workshops, relapse prevention, seeking safety, individual and group therapy, anger management, the basics of 12-step recovery and much more. Clients also attend off-site and on-site Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Co-occurring mood disorders like anxiety and depression, are often associated with alcohol use or with other substance use as well.

Prescription Drug Abuse

Prescription drugs are highly accessible. Usually it begins with prescriptions given by a doctor for medical reasons. Today over 15 million people use prescription drugs for recreational use. This prescription drug abuse affects not only adults but teens as young as 12 years old. Prescription drug abuse is a growing problem in the United States and can lead to death. Some examples of leading medications that are abused are pain relievers such as Vicodin, Oxycodone, Codeine, also Benzodiazepines such as Xanax, Klonopin, tranquilizers-Valium, and stimulant such as Adderall & Ritalin etc.
 
Prescription addicts tend to doctor shop, which means find different doctors to write the prescriptions they need to continue their addictive needs. They buy the pills off the streets; steal from family, friends and strangers to feed their habit. Prescriptions also can be obtained online without federal & state regulations.
 
At Eaton Canyon Treatment Center the client is medically assessed, he or she is transported to our associate detoxification facility. Once the client has completed detoxification the client will begin the treatment process beginning with a psychological assessment and than a treatment plan to address the individualized needs of each client.

Methamphetamine & Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine and methamphetamine belong to a class of drugs called psycho stimulants. The effect of methamphetamines last up to 24 hours while cocaine lasts approximately 25 minutes. Both drugs produce a euphoric effect or feeling of happiness. Dopamine is the pleasure sensor of the brain. When aroused or excited norepinephrine is activated. Cocaine and methamphetamine activate both of these neurotransmitters creating an intense euphoric high for the user. Long-term use damages the neurons that produce serotonin and dopamine. Chronic use can cause seizures, strokes and dependence.
 
Eventually the user loses motivation to participate in regular daily activities, the only goal is to feel the pleasure they experiences when they first used the drug. This is followed by the loss of emotions, depressed and becoming isolative. Methamphetamine and cocaine users can develop depression, bipolar disorder, psychosis, anxiety/panic disorders to name a few. These drugs are highly addictive stimulants.
 
At Eaton Canyon Treatment Center the client will gain understanding of the disease concept of addiction, learn the tools to understand him or herself and the addiction aspect, gain self-esteem, learn coping skills, move forward on a positive path to recovery without mood and mind altering substances.

Benzodiazepine Addiction

Benzodiazepines, also known also as "benzos" are considered sedative/hypnotics, which are a class C controlled (schedule 4) prescription drugs, used for the treatment of anxiety and insomnia. When benzodiazepines are taken as prescribed and for short-term use the risk of dependence is slim to none. On the other hand long-term use raises tolerance level. Some of the negative affects of the long-term use are dependence, confusion, depression, distorted perception and tremors. It is never recommended a person attempt to withdraw from benzos without proper medical detoxification because it can be dangerous due the client can have seizures. Combining alcohol, opiates or depressants with benzos are a high risk for overdose. Street use of benzos has increases in the past few years. Xanax is amongst one of the largest abused benzos today. Statistics state people are taking more than twenty times the prescribed dose and are mixing benzos with other drugs such as opiates.

At Eaton Canyon Treatment Center our professional staff members monitor the clients. Comprehensive treatment is vital for any addict or alcoholic and our staff provides individualized care. We provide safe alternatives and treatment for anxiety, insomnia and other detox symptoms, while addressing the root of the problems.  Back to top

Opiate Addiction

Opiates come in different forms. There are prescribed narcotic opiates that are used to relieve pain, opium, morphine, codeine and than there is heroine. Heroin used to be the number one cause of opiate dependence but prescription opiate dependence is on the rise. The body produces endogenous opioids, which are what control our reaction to pain, when we are hungry, thirsty etc. When opiates are added to our natural opioids it causes a euphoric effect. After increased use he or she becomes physically dependent on the substance and increases the amount of drugs used. The withdrawal from opiates can be physically painful but can be accomplished with taking the right steps. Our associate physician can provide nonaddictive medication to alleviate the symptoms of withdraws.

Marijuana Addiction

Marijuana today is more potent than in previous years. In the past marijuana was considered a " harmless drug". Those days are in the past. The Tetrahydrcannabinol (THC) levels have increased dramatically in marijuana. The reason for the increase is indoor cultivation and cross-fertilization. A large number of mood-altering substances affect the limbic system (region of the brain that produces emotions and behaviors). Marijuana affects the limbic system and the cerebral cortex, which is the region of the brain that controls cognitive functioning, thought patterns and ability to learn. Marijuana alters the perception of the user by changing the way the brain processes information. This is why heavy marijuana users can suffer from low attention span, loss of motivation, paranoia and short-term memory issues.
 
At Eaton Canyon Treatment Center, a person who was a heavy user of marijuana may not have the ability to engage fully in therapeutic activities that involve a lot of reading and writing. At times they may even feel overwhelmed with the activities around them. Our treatment team here at Eaton Canyon understands the neurobiology of marijuana addiction. Our treatment team tailors to the specific needs of our clients based on their abilities and their limitations due to their addictions. Co-occurring mood disorders like anxiety and depression, are often associated with marijuana use or with other addictions as well.
 
Our highly trained professionals address the addiction cycle of the client and the low self-esteem developed due to the development of his or her addiction. The goal is to raise the client's self-esteem, motivation and restore the desire to live life on life's terms once again by giving the client the tools and knowledge to maintain sobriety.
