If the first thought to cross your mind today was whether or not you had enough pills or potions to get you through the day, this is an excellent time to talk to someone about drug and alcohol treatment centers in Orange County or wherever you happen to be.
Addiction is a sneaky thing that can take anyone by surprise. Many good people developed terrible habits with prescription painkillers that were legally prescribed by a trusted family doctor. While helpful in the wake of a serious accident, opiate pain medications such as OxyContin, codeine and Vicodin are so habit-forming, most persons who take them for more than a few weeks become dependent on them.
How does addiction work?
Opiates act in a way that makes the brain stop making its own feel-good chemicals called endorphins. When the brain delivers these important hormones only when stimulated by painkiller pills, the person to whom the brain belongs feels uneasy without them. If they go long enough without a dose of drugs, a natural process called withdrawal begins. Unless the user seeks professional guidance and medical intervention, withdrawals can be worse than awful. Fortunately, private care is available at numerous drug and alcohol treatment centers in Orange County.
At our attractive campus in Dana Point, inpatients receive quality care that is always private and respectful. Better than that, you can bring your dog when you check into our facility.

Not sure you’re addicted?
