Do you or someone you care about live in Elgin, Illinois and have an addiction to drugs or alcohol? Have you failed at trying to help someone with drug or alcohol addiction in Elgin and have lost all hope? Drug and alcohol addiction are an epidemic in our society today. Someone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol is just existing, not living. This can be a very sad and depressing existence to say the least. But all is not lost, and there are ways to treat addiction that actually work. The way out can be found at an Alcohol Rehab or Drug Rehabilitation Facility in Elgin that will suit your treatment needs.

The reason an Alcohol Rehabilitation or Drug Rehab Program in Elgin works for the treatment of drug addiction and alcoholism is because the individual will learn to overcome problems in life by confronting them, not by numbing them with drugs and alcohol. Once the individual starts confronting and handling life situations, they realize that they can actually cope with their problems and don't feel the need to compound them with drugs or alcohol.

Each individual is different, and there are a variety of treatment programs available in Elgin to cater to individual needs. For example, there are Outpatient Drug Rehabilitation Programs, Short-term Drug Rehabilitation Programs, Long-term Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs, Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facilities, support group meetings, drug counseling, halfway houses and sober living.

The two main aspects of addiction, physical and psychological, are what the individual will be addressing during the course of treatment at a Drug Rehab or Alcohol Rehabilitation Facility in Elgin. Individuals will first begin by addressing the aspect of physical addiction by taking part in a detoxification program in Elgin, Illinois, which will help with the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that ensue when a person stops using drugs or alcohol. The brain adapts to the use of a psychoactive substance over time, which lessens the effect of the drug. This is how physical tolerance to drugs such as heroin, amphetamines, cocaine, nicotine and alcohol develops. This is why someone using drugs has to take more and more of the substance to get the same effect. Abruptly stopping substance use is what causes the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms could last for days, weeks or even months depending on the individual's history of abuse. Hardcore drugs such as heroin have a particularly long and painful withdrawal period.

Right off the bat, a Drug Rehab or Alcohol Treatment Facility in Elgin will get the individual started on a professional detoxification accompanied by psychological counseling. At the root of the individual's addiction to drugs or alcohol are these psychological issues. Once addressed, the individual's chances of relapse are decreased markedly.

Due to the structured environment and comprehensive program that an Alcohol Treatment or Drug Rehabilitation Facility in Elgin, IL. offers, it truly is the most successful method for treating drug and alcohol addiction. There is no stone left unturned, every area where the individual is having problems in life will be addressed.

As part of treatment in Elgin, IL., the individual will be trained on how to react appropriately to situations in life and how to change his behavior patterns. Staff of a Drug Rehabilitation or Alcohol Treatment Center in Elgin will work with the individual on how to respond to his environment, friends, family etc. when he returns home upon completion of treatment. It is expected that the individual will be able to appropriately handle the things which may have initially triggered his drug use. If not, these influences may produce psychological stressors which can cause the person to relapse. That is why professional treatment to address these psychological stressors is such an important aspect of the individual's recovery.

After having discontinued use of drugs or alcohol, research has shown that an addict's brain changes the ways it functions and responds to situations. This is yet another reason it is vital to seek professional help at an Alcohol Rehabilitation or Drug Rehab Center in Elgin, IL., instead of trying to stop on one's own. There is so much for an addict to overcome to achieve sobriety. It is no easy task, even with help. Seeking help at an Alcohol Rehab or Drug Treatment Program in Elgin, IL. is an addict's best bet for a successful recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. If you or someone you know is ready for a new life free of drugs and alcohol, find out what treatment options are available at a Drug Rehab or Alcohol Treatment Program in Elgin. No time is better than the present to end the cycle of addiction and all of the destruction that it creates. Help is waiting for you or someone you love today.

Did You Know? ...
Interesting Facts and Statistics:

The combination of Xanax and alcohol can be fatal; both are central nervous system depressants that slow the activity of the brain, so they should not ever be taken together.

Ecstasy became popular initially among young adults in the nightclub scene or at weekend-long dance parties known as raves.

Long-term users of Ativan have been reported to develop a tolerance to the drug. This requires them to take more and more of the drug to achieve the desired effects.

Use of heroin in pregnancy also may increase the risk of a variety of birth defects. What is not entirely clear is whether these effects are directly due to the drug itself or related to the poor health behaviors that women who take heroin often have. It may also be caused by the substances that the heroin often is mixed with when it is made.

Long term residential drug rehab treatment generally involves a period of three to six months so as to provide the individual with an extensive change of environment as well as around the clock professional support. Research has proven that this type of treatment is by far the most successful for those individuals who have a history of heavy drug addiction spanning over many years.

Heroin admissions represented 13.6% of the total drug/alcohol admissions to treatment during 2007.
