Vermont Detox Centers

Vermont ranks higher in opioid addiction than most other states. This lush, densely forested northeastern state has seen over a 20 percent jump in drug overdose deaths in recent years, with a large percentage of those deaths being accidentally caused by opioids. Heroin use is also on the rise throughout the Green Mountain State, since many opioid addicts frequently turn to heroin when prescription opioids become too difficult to obtain.

Other substances commonly abused in Vermont are alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine. The state in its entirety suffers from especially high drug abuse rates compared to the rest of the U.S. But Vermont detox centers can help its residents overcome physical dependency on these substances, and achieve long-term sobriety.

Vermont detox centers use a combination of therapies to help you safely withdraw from alcohol and substances with a reduced risk for complications. Medications, acupuncture, and daily massage have been proven effective at relieving drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Causes & Signs of Drug Abuse

Drug abuse can affect anyone, and can be caused by factors including trauma, long-term painkiller use, and co-occurring disorders. Co-occurring disorders are mental health disorders that may be driving addiction such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Drug abuse can also be caused by domestic abuse, peer pressure, and regular exposure to drugs and alcohol.

Common signs of drug abuse:

  • Loss of interest in favorite hobbies and activities
  • Sudden changes in mood and behavior
  • Withdrawing from friends and family
  • Drug and alcohol cravings

Those who suffer from drug abuse may also exhibit certain physical symptoms based on the substances being used. For instance, cocaine users may suffer nosebleeds and dilated pupils, while opioid users may suffer slowed breathing and constricted pupils. Vermont detox centers can recommend the best course of treatment based on the drug being abused, and your unique history with addiction.

Choosing From Many Vermont Detox Centers

Those who struggle with addiction often need all the help they can get when choosing a detox center. Follow these tips when researching and choosing a Vermont drug detox center.

  • Treat addiction as a whole

    Detox treats the physical side of addiction, but detox does not treat mental root causes of addiction. Look for Vermont detox centers that also offer behavioral counseling and cognitive-behavioral therapy to address mental causes of addiction. These therapies help you manage co-occurring disorders, and identify negative thoughts and behaviors that may be driving your addiction.

  • Consider inpatient vs outpatient

    Inpatient care allows you to live at the facility during treatment, while outpatient care takes place in a clinical setting and allows you to return home every night. Choose an inpatient detox center if your goal is to recover away from negative influences and establish a healthy daily routine without drugs and alcohol. Choose an outpatient detox center if you suffer a mild addiction, and must also balance work, school, and family lives outside of addiction treatment.

  • Explore aftercare options

    Aftercare programs offer ongoing therapies aimed at helping you stay sober for life following treatment. Examples of therapies included in aftercare are ongoing education, counseling, and 12-step support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Look for Vermont detox centers that include aftercare programs with treatment.

  • Find affordable treatment

    Detox treatment in Vermont can be made affordable for nearly anyone who needs help overcoming addiction. Detox centers featured on Addictions.com accept most health insurance plans, and may be able to adjust the cost of treatment based on income using sliding scale payment systems. Ask detox centers about all available payment methods so you or your loved one can receive addiction treatment as deserved.
