We are not a big state, but Connecticut gets its share of drug related problems. Drug abuse and drug addiction in Connecticut is at an all time high. At Transitions Recovery, we recognize that alcoholism or drug addiction is a disease that affects the whole family. It is not the family members who have caused their loved one’s disease of addiction and they cannot cure it, but they can contribute greatly to the healing and recovery of that loved one. Our medical detox programs are designed to purge a patient’s system of the abused substance under medical supervision. This must occur prior to entering our CT drug rehabs and beginning drug treatment. The detoxification period can be a challenging time for you or your loved one.

When a patient enters Transitions medical alcohol or drug detox Connecticut CT treatment, the type of alcohol or drug detoxification program will depend on his or her condition. Everything is taken into consideration, such as previous drug history, length of drug abuse, the presence of other disorders and medical conditions. This process set the tone of the alcohol and/or drug rehabilitation treatment phases that follow. Our licensed and trained medical staff will determine a personalized rehab program. Medically supervised detox programs are the safest and most reliable way of starting a recovery treatment. The most intense part, of the detox programs, is a period where your body may go through withdrawal symptoms and behavioral changes, as a result of sudden abstinence. It can be more extreme than anything you can safely do at home or on your own. To protect the patient under all circumstances, Transitions medical supervision is highly recommended during these early stages of detoxification. Our professionals, in the field of addiction treatment have dedicated their lives to helping individuals overcome drug addiction.

Alcohol Detox Connecticut CT and Alcohol Rehab Connecticut
Alcoholism, also known as alcohol addiction or alcohol dependence, is a physical addiction and a progressive disease characterized by a strong craving for alcohol and/or continued use despite harm, personal injury or injury or death of another. Alcoholism is worse than mere alcohol abuse. Alcoholism is alcohol abuse, but with a physical dependence on alcohol. Alcohol abuse becomes alcoholism when the drinker has alcohol cravings, increased tolerance, and withdrawal symptoms, when they stop drinking, even for a short time. Whether they know it or not, individuals suffering from alcohol abuse are at risk for even greater alcohol addiction (alcoholism). The physical and mental reliance on alcohol means the individual suffers from alcoholism. Though family history and a genetic predisposition can also play a role in alcoholism, this does not mean that there is no cure. Alcoholism can take over an individual’s life, devastating their career, their finances, and their family life. Call 1-800-626-1980 for more information on alcohol addiction or alcohol detox Connecticut CT.
Cocaine, Drug Abuse and Drug Addiction in Connecticut
Unfortunately cocaine is available all over the State of Connecticut. Cocaine offers a powerful high and causes a difficult addiction; it is considered one of the toughest drugs to quit using. Heavy cocaine use causes serious changes in the brain. Cocaine addicts often feel intense cravings for months after quitting and even after years of being clean, a sudden intense drug craving can occur. Ironically, cocaine damages the part of the brain responsible for making us feel good, and in the early period of cocaine addiction recovery, symptoms of depression, restlessness and irritability make it difficult to maintain the resolve to quit. Transitions drug rehab has treatment programs designed to treat both common forms of cocaine addiction. Lasting abstinence is very possible through Transitions Recovery CT drug rehabs at 1-800-626-1980.
Heroin Addiction and Transitions CT Drug Rehabs and DetoxCenters
A range of treatments exist for heroin addiction, including medications and behavioral therapies. When medication treatment is integrated with other supportive services, patients are often able to stop using heroin (or other opiates) and return to stable and productive lives. Transitions heroin addiction treatment begins with medically assisted detoxification, to help patients withdraw from the drug safely. Medications such as clonidine and, now, buprenorphine may be used to help minimize symptoms of withdrawal. However, detoxification alone is not effective in preventing relapse; it must be followed by addiction treatment. Heroin is available Connecticut, but so is Transitions Recovery, at: 1-800-626-1980.
Marijuana Addiction Treatment
Marijuana is everywhere in Connecticut from many sources, all over the country; some marijuana, grown hydroponically, is also available. Marijuana can create dependency for many users and often serves as a gateway to the use of more dangerous drugs. Curb marijuana addiction before it leads to something much more harmful. Call Transitions CT drug rehabs at: 1-800-626-1980 today.
Methamphetamine and Crystal Meth Addiction Treatment
Crystal meth is a nickname given to a crystallized form of methamphetamine. This drug is a powerful stimulant that can be snorted, smoked, or injected, though most crystal meth is smoked for a quick and easy high. Once in the user’s system, the meth causes euphoria, a burst of energy, and a loss of appetite. Crystal meth is often manufactured in small, out of the way, amateur laboratories with legally obtained ingredients. After manufacture, the illicit drug is sold illegally under a variety of names including meth, speed, crank, and ice. Meth abuse is a big problem with the younger members of our society.

Our Party Drug Rehab and Ecstasy Addiction Treatment
Club drugs are available everywhere in Connecticut at parties, bars, nightclubs, concerts and on area college campuses and tend to be used by teenagers and young adults. Club drugs include G, liquid ecstasy, soap (GHB); Rohypnol® (roofies), MDMA (Ecstasy), Methamphetamine, Special K, vitamin K, jet (ketamine) and LSD (Acid), all have varying effects and all are addictive and dangerous. Ketamine distorts perception and produces feelings of detachment from the environment and self, while GHB and rohypnol are sedating. GHB abuse can cause coma and seizures. High doses of ketamine can cause delirium and amnesia. Rohypnol® can incapacitate users and cause amnesia, and when mixed with alcohol, can be lethal.

Prescription Drug Addiction Detox Programs and Treatment
Prescription drug addiction and abuse is a real problem throughout Connecticut. Oxycontin, Methadone and Vicodin are among the most commonly abused prescription drugs in the state.
Our years of research have shown that addiction to any drug (illicit or prescribed) is a brain disease that is treatable. Detox programs and treatment must account for the type of drug and the needs of the individual. Successful treatment may need to incorporate detoxification, counseling, and sometimes the use of addiction medications. The two main categories of drug addiction treatment are behavioral and pharmacological. Behavioral treatments get patients to stop drug use by teaching coping strategies, deal with cravings, avoid drugs and situations that could lead to drug use, and even how to handle a relapse should it occur. Some addictions can be treated with medications, these pharmacological treatments counter the drug’s effects on the brain and behavior, and they can be used to relieve withdrawal symptoms, overcome drug cravings, or treat an overdose. Although a behavioral or pharmacological approach alone may be sufficient for treating some patients, our research shows that a combined approach may be best.
