Drug Addiction

find hope and relief in women's drug treatment programs

Individualized Treatment for Drug Addiction

Drug abuse continues to affect an alarming number of people in America. In the year 2013, 9.4 percent of the United States population aged 12 and above had engaged in some form of illicit drug use in the previous month. Additionally, 20% of United States residents use prescription medication outside of regular medical direction, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Drug addiction treatment must be specialized and catered to the individual, as it affects every person differently. Today, over 4 million women in the U.S. abuse drugs. 9 million women have used illegal drugs in the past year, and over 70 percent of all AIDS cases among women are drug-related. Drug treatment for women has never been more needed than it is right now, and Destination Hope takes that responsibility seriously.

Recovery from Drug Abuse

Whether a woman is addicted to marijuana, heroin, or prescription medications, our substance abuse treatment programs are designed to treat the root cause and help a woman learn the skills she needs to recover in strength.

Today, prescription drug abuse is by most accounts the hardest form of addiction and substance abuse to treat. Prescription medications are most often prescribed to a patient following physical trauma such as serious injury or surgery. While it is appropriate to take a prescription medication in the doses prescribed, oftentimes a person will begin taking the medication more often because of the temporary feelings of euphoria that the pill may provide.

Destination Hope provides the highest level of women’s drug treatment for all drugs, including:

  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Prescription Opioids
  • Benzodiazepines

Discover the Serenity to Live Life Free in Sobriety

Drug addiction is the dependence on a legal or illegal drug or medication. The addiction to drugs is characterized by the compulsive need for the drug. Addicts will often put themselves in risky situations despite the consequences as the desire for the drug overwhelms them.

Drug abuse can begin with social use, but in time, users will need higher doses and will use more frequently. As the dependency grows stronger, users will experience physical and mental changes. Drug use can have immediate and long-lasting effects on your physical and mental health.

Drug treatment programs at Destination Hope typically begin after the patient has undergone detox. Following the detox program, the patient will undergo inpatient or intensive outpatient treatment to overcome addiction. Within both programs, addicts will receive therapy, medical treatment, counseling, and drug abuse education to prevent a relapse.

Following rehabilitation, Destination Hope offers aftercare programs and alumni meetings to help each person thrive in a world free from drugs and alcohol.

Destination Hope is dedicated to helping women heal and lead a meaningful life. Our admissions counselors can answer all your questions about drug addiction treatment for women and help guide you in the right direction so you can get the care you need and deserve.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, in 2014, an estimated 15.8 million women admitted to using illicit drugs in the past year. Our experienced drug addiction counselors can help those suffering from an addiction to legal or illegal drugs. Addiction can cause short and long-term consequences and affect a woman’s physical and mental health, as well as her relationships and employment.

Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine is a recreational substance that quickly becomes addictive. It can affect a person’s mood, motivation, and energy. Cocaine abuse can increase the risk of psychiatric disorders, disease, and death. Some of the most serious effects of cocaine abuse are inflammation of the heart muscle, cardiac arrhythmias, and an increased risk of heart attack.

Methamphetamine Addiction

Methamphetamines (meth) can alter the nervous system and the brain’s structure and function. Repetitive motor activities and psychosis are common effects of meth abuse. The drug’s stimulant properties make it one of the most addictive drugs.

Opioid Addiction

Opioids are made of synthetic and semi-synthetic materials. Vicodin, OxyContin, and Percocet are some of the most widely prescribed opioids. When abused, opioids are highly addictive. The drugs depress the central nervous system and physical processes like respiratory rate. In 2015, approximately 18,000 people died of an opioid drug overdose. Addicts who can no longer turn to prescription opioids may begin to abuse heroin, which accounts for the largest percentage of opioid abuse.

Marijuana Addiction

Addiction to marijuana is progressive and can develop after long-term abuse of the drug. The National Institute on Drug Abuse estimated that 9% of users become addicted. As marijuana is a depressant, it is often abused in correlation with other drugs, specifically stimulants.

Prescription Drug Addiction

An estimated 48 million people use prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons. Opioids are the most commonly abused medication. Other prescriptions that are often abused include central nervous system depressants (benzodiazepines such as Valium and Xanax), stimulants, such as Adderall and Ritalin, and drugs used to treat attention deficit disorder and sleep disorders.
