Grand Island Alcohol and Drug Rehab Listings
Raising awareness about prescription drug abuse is a vital element in the fight against the abuse of these medications. Last fall, the town of Grand Island, NE, played host to a drug recognition expert who spoke to people in the community. The expert spoke on the dangers of prescription drug abuse and commonly abused drugs such as Vicodin and Percocet. The town hopes that as citizens become more aware of the problem as well as the consequences associated with this type of drug abuse, fewer individuals will abuse these medications.
Methadone Treatment for Opioid Abuse
Treating the abuse of some prescription drugs involves the use of methadone maintenance. As with any method, there are pros and cons to methadone treatment. One major benefit of methadone is that it stops withdrawal symptoms. It also effectively helps the individual deal with cravings. The effects of methadone last for 24 hours so the recovering substance abuser gets long relief from one dose. Also, receiving daily doses of methadone means the individual benefits from the structure of the daily routine.
On the other hand, methadone treatment does have some drawbacks. Due to the strict regimen of the treatment, the individual in recovery may feel they have little freedom. Also, methadone treatment will cause an individual to fail a drug test. In addition, it is also possible to use methadone while also continuing to abuse other drugs.
