Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine is the most trafficked drug in the world and it is estimated that at least 5 million Americans use it. It is highly addictive and often ends in psychosis and financial ruin. Long term cocaine use can lead to heart disease, stroke, seizure disorders, chronic headaches, and many cognitive deficits. As the use of cocaine increases, you may feel stronger cravings as your brain changes to adapt. Once your mind and body begin to depend on the drug, you may have trouble functioning without it. Pathways can help you beat cocaine through intensive treatment that has been proven effective.

Heroin Addiction

Since 1999, heroin related overdose rates have multiplied more than seven times. Many heroin users were once legitimately prescribed opiate painkillers like OxyContin and found heroin a cheaper and easier to acquire substitute. Heroin use has become increasing dangerous due to the presence of Fentanyl, a substance that leads to fatal overdose with shockingly small quantities of the drug. Treatment for heroin addiction requires medically supervised detoxification.

Opioid Addiction

The U.S. is currently experiencing an unprecedented Opioid epidemic. Due to the over-prescribing of painkiller likeFentanyl, OxyContin, and Vicodin, many people with legitimate pain management issues have become addicted to opiates. Dependence on opiates leads to tolerance of the drugs. Once the user has developed tolerance of opiates, they higher and higher doses to achieve the same effect. Some users find themselves turning to heroin to supplement the increased amount of the substance they need. Opiate addiction often leads to overdose and requires medically supervised detoxification.

Prescription Drug Addiction

Use of opiate painkillers such as Oxycontin and Percocet, as well as benzodiazepines like Xanax and Valium can quickly escalate from use to abuse due to the tolerance and dependency that develops from regular use. Stimulants like Adderal are very powerful and can quickly become addictive even when used for legitimate disorders like ADHD and narcolepsy. Pathways can help you learn to cope with your issues without these substances. Detox from these drugs can be dangerous and requires medical supervision.

Co-Occurring Disorders

Overcoming drug or alcohol addiction by itself can be difficult for anyone. Recovery from addiction combined with a mental health condition such as depression or PTSD becomes even more complicated because both issues must be treated together at the same time.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), approximately half of all people with a substance use disorder of addiction will also experience some form of mental health disorder in their lifetime.
Treating addiction without identifying and targeting the accompanying mental illness often results in problems with recovery. For the same reasons, treating only a mental health disorder without addressing addiction will also result in a very poor outcome.

Vicodin Addiction

Vicodin is one of the most well-known prescription drugs that is commonly misused. Although healthcare providers are beginning to crack down on prescriptions and monitor use more closely, Vicodin is still widely used to treat severe or chronic pain, making people more susceptible to Vicodin addiction.

Painkillers are not meant for long-term use. Over time your body begins building up a tolerance to Vicodin and you have to take more and more to feel the same level of relief. Eventually you may continue feeling pain even when taking high doses. By this point you most likely have already developed a Vicodin addiction and may have trouble stopping use.

Benzo Addiction

Doctors prescribe these drugs for a number of perfectly legitimate medical reasons—including treatment for anxiety disorders, insomnia and sleeplessness, alcohol withdrawal and seizure control. Benzos can offer muscle relaxation for those with acute pain, and in some cases are used as anesthesia before surgery.

These drugs are active on the nervous system, lowering anxieties and muscle tension and ultimately providing a feeling of sedation.

Yet these drugs are also commonly abused. This is partly because they are so widely available and so easy to obtain. Benzos rarely lead to death all on their own but can be lethal when mixed with alcohol; they do yield some severe symptoms, including drowsiness, confusion, dizziness, slurred speech, impaired coordination, and—in some cases—even coma. They can lead to intense physical dependence; withdrawal from benzos can be painful and challenging.

Methadone Addiction

Methadone is a laboratory-made, artificially created opioid, most often used as a painkiller for those dealing with severe pain. Methadone is also used as a potential treatment for those in the throes of opiate addiction, including those addicted to prescription painkillers and to heroin. However, methadone is also an addictive and dangerous substance in and of itself—and often, well-intentioned methadone use spirals quite inadvertently into methadone addiction.

Recovery is possible—but the road to recovery can be a long one, encompassing both clinical detox and inpatient treatment. The first step is to understand what methadone addiction is and how it works.
