Everything You Need to Know About Drug Recovery

Addiction to street drugs is a life-threatening condition, but illicit drugs are not the only substances people get addicted to. Prescription drugs and even medicines available over the counter can trigger addiction, even for people who intended to use them responsibly. Addiction is a powerful force that often goes unrecognized until it starts to interfere with everyday life.

The most important concept to understand about drug recovery is that it is possible and you can overcome addiction, too. At Tranquil Shores’ drug rehab facilities in Tampa, Florida, we help people overcome their substance abuse addictions every day. We see the success stories because we’re part of making them happen.

Type of Drug Addictions Treated at Tranquil Shores

It is possible to develop an addiction to almost any substance, but taking certain drugs makes the risk much higher. At Tranquil Shores, we see all kinds of addictions and have experience in treating them all.

There are many illicit drugs that lead to addiction like cocaine, heroin, marijuana, meth and amphetamines. In recent years, addictions to prescription and even over-the-counter drugs increased as the number and strength of these substances also increased.

Whether you or your loved one is struggling with addiction to a well-known street drug, an over-the-counter preparation or a combination of several substances, Tranquil Shores has the expertise to treat that addiction so that you can reclaim your life.

Not sure if you need a drug intervention program in Tampa? If you notice some of these signs, your family member could be struggling with an addiction:
  • Unusually secretive behavior
  • Frequent job changes
  • Problems at school
  • Lack of energy and motivation
  • Money troubles
  • Changes in appearance

Approach the topic carefully, because most people remain unaware of their own drug addiction longer than their family and friends.

If you think you could be denying a drug addiction, check for these symptoms:
  • Intense urges to use a particular drug
  • Always short on money
  • Cutting out of work early a lot
  • Skipping parties or other social engagements
  • Thinking about replenishing your stash of drugs all the time
These can all be signs that you are dealing with a drug addiction. Tranquil Shores can help you overcome that addiction and get back to living a healthy life.
