Alcohol And Drug Rehab Treatments For Military In Connecticut

In the state of Connecticut, there are some drug and alcohol treatments and rehabilitation options available to military personnel, service members, and veterans. Drug and alcohol addiction impacts these individuals just as hard as it does the civilian population. Many of these members will become addicted to prescription medications, which were prescribed for some injury or mental affliction. It is important to understand that many prescription drugs are narcotics, and a person can become addicted to them. For example, when prescribed opiates for pain management and individual does not follow the doctor's plan for taking them and starts to abuse them, it is very likely this person will become physically addicted to them. The body will build dependency on the drug and will go through some painful withdrawals when it does not have the current dosage it is used to taking.

Many individuals who are hooked on pain medications will have to go through some form of medical detox to help get over the initial withdrawals of the drug. When a person is in this state, it is important to get them into a drug treatment program that will help them get that part of his or her life back on track again so as to not turn back to drugs again. Prescription medications are commonly abused in the military as they are prescribed for physical and mental health problems. The military has taken different steps over the years to ensure its members do not become addicted to these drugs, and improvements have been made, but it still does happen. Finding the right help is important as it will be the deciding factor in ensuring your loved one does not continue with their addiction.
