A short documentary entitled From Pills 2 Heroin: The Domino Effect is being used in New Jersey to highlight the dangers of prescription drug abuse. The documentary focuses on people who have been impacted by it, either addicts themselves or family members of addicts. The recent screening of the film at a community college near Plainfield, NJ, offered a chance for people in the community to see the impact of prescription drug abuse up close and personal.
Making the Right Choice for Treatment
Breaking a substance abuse habit is a process that often begins with treatment. Professional assistance can help an individual to build a foundation for a life without alcohol or drugs. Choosing the most appropriate substance abuse treatment program for a loved one is important to their recovery. Below are some important factors to keep in mind when selecting a program for a loved one:
- Needs. The individual’s substance of choice, the severity of the problem, and existing physical or mental health issues.
- Cost. Knowing what their insurance covers. If there’s no insurance, the facility may offer treatment on a sliding scale or treatment paid for in installments.
- Proximity. Choosing a treatment program close enough for family and friends to be involved in the process and visit their loved one – or conversely, choosing a program that allows for physical and emotional space from negative relationships and situations at home.
- Philosophy. Understanding the ideas behind the treatment and the methods that are used to treat substance abuse.
