Experienced addictions treatment staff will know that addicted patients will try to horde and stockpile their medication to use at one go and attempt to get high. Alternative they may trade medication or try to ingest it by more ‘effective’ means – smoking or injecting.
During the initial detoxification phase of treatment, when patient are withdrawing badly and craving to use drugs, appropriate medication levels is often the most effective way to provide a sense of containment and holding for patients.
This may seem obvious; however retaining addicted people in treatment is critical to its success. After all we can’t work with them if they’re not present! And initially the drugs used to detoxify patients may seem their best friend and only comfort. I’ve no qualms in providing appropriate comfort through medication to assist patient that are detoxifying ensuring that they get through the detox and are able to enroll in the treatment programme.
Choosing quality addiction treatment is the path to choosing a new, clean and brighter future. Recovery is not instant, but is a process. It is likely to continue throughout life with choices that are made on a daily basis to keep engaging in positive life affirming thoughts and behaviours. The process need not be done alone as help and support is readily available.
