What is Addiction?

An addiction is a condition that is the result of using a particular substance over and over again. Substances can include alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal street drugs. Once an individual uses these substances, and feels compelled to do so, they are called an addict. They are not able to stop using, and may use drugs or alcohol only to make themselves feel normal.

Quite often, addicts are not aware of their behaviors.

They may not realize how damaging it is to use, and they may feel they control their substance abuse. This is called being in denial. Drug and alcohol addiction is very common in the United States, and it grows with each passing year.

Difference Between Substance and Alcohol Addiction and Substance Abuse

It is important to understand the difference between substance abuse and addiction. These are terms that are frequently used to mean the same thing. They're really quite different.

When someone is abusing substances like alcohol or drugs, it is a problem. However, it is not as serious as an addiction. That individual does have control over his or her substance use. Quitting is easy, and they may not use for weeks, or months at a time. There is no compulsion to use drugs or alcohol.

For many people, they don't stop using substances while they're still in the abuse stage. They will continue until their substance abuse becomes an addiction. Once it does, the compulsion to use is very real. It takes control of their lives, and they are unable to stop using.

Information and Statistics About Addiction in Oregon

It's no secret that addiction has become a significant problem in the State of Oregon. In fact, the problem is not getting any better; it's becoming worse every year.

Addiction is on the rise in almost every area of Oregon. According to Oregon Live:

  • 62% of law enforcement officials state that meth was the number 1 drug problem in the state.
  • More than 60% of these officials claim that meth is the primary funding source for criminal activity.
  • There were close to 9,000 meth samples submitted to State Police crime labs in 2014.
  • Between 2009 and 2015, the number of arrests related to meth has doubled.
  • 24% of police officers claim that heroin is the primary threat in their areas.
  • The number of groups distributing heroin has increased substantially.
  • In 2015, police officers stated that marijuana was highly available in Oregon.
  • 77% of them reported an increase in the amount of hash that was available.
  • The use of marijuana in Oregon is much higher than its use in other states.
  • One in five people begins abusing drugs by misusing prescription medications first.

The Primary Drugs of Abuse in Oregon

Because of the above statistics, the primary drugs of abuse in the State of Oregon are:

What is Methamphetamine?

Methamphetamine is a drug that is classified as a stimulant. It comes in a powder or pill that has a bitter taste. It can also come in crystal form, which is where the name Crystal Meth comes from. It is very similar to amphetamines, which are prescribed to treat ADHD, sleep disorders and other conditions.

The Short and Long-Term Effects of Meth

The short-term effects of meth include a decreased or rapid heart rate and an increase in blood pressure. The long-term effects of methamphetamine include serious dental problems, rapid and extreme weight loss, and violent behavior.

Methamphetamine Addiction

Experts report that it might not take very long to form an addiction to methamphetamine. Once someone is addicted, it's nearly impossible to stop using this drug. People with meth addictions frequently feel the need to use the drug just to feel normal.

What is Heroin?

is a drug that is classified as an opioid. It is made from morphine, which comes from the opium poppy plant. It comes in a few different forms. Usually, it is seen as a white or a brown powder. Some forms of heroin are known as black tar heroin, and they have a sticky feeling to them.

Heroin's Short-Term and Long-Term Effects

Someone who uses heroin short-term is likely to experience severe itching, nausea, and brain fog. Long-term heroin use can result in severe constipation, damage to nose tissue and liver and kidney disease.

Heroin Addiction

Many people turn to heroin after first becoming addicted to prescription drugs. For these individuals, their heroin addictions may be instantaneous. Once someone is addicted to heroin, it's not possible to stop without professional treatment.

What are Prescription Drugs?

Prescription drugs are medications that are given to you by a doctor. They are only available by prescription, and many of them are controlled substances. They should be used according to specific guidelines. However, they are frequently abused, both accidentally and on purpose.

What Makes Prescription Drugs Unsafe?

Prescription drugs are generally safe when used in the short-term, and according to the prescription label. They become unsafe when they are abused. The fact that people assume them to be safe makes them highly dangerous.

Addictive Medications

There are several addictive medications. However, some are more popular for abuse purposes. The more commonly abused prescription medications include:

What is Marijuana?

Marijuana is a plant that goes by a number of different street names. It is commonly referred to as grass, pot, bud and Mary Jane. It is a mixture of leaves and flowers from the cannabis sativa plant that have been dried.

Short-Term and Long-Term Effects of Using Marijuana

In the short-term, people who use it experience a number of different effects. They may have a different sensation of time, experience mood changes and have problems with memory. In the long-term, they may experience problems with brain development, lower IQ levels, and lasting memory issues.

Marijuana Addiction

Many people believe that a marijuana addiction is impossible. That simply is not the case. It does produce a psychological addiction. People may also experience physical withdrawal symptoms when stopping its use.

What is Cocaine?

Cocaine is a stimulant drug that is very powerful and addicting. It was once used medicinally and was even an ingredient in Coca-Cola. It comes from the coca plant and is made into a fine, white powder.

Cocaine Use's Short-Term and Long-Term Effects

People who use cocaine short-term may be paranoid, and be hypersensitive to light and sound. They may also have a lot of energy and be very alert. Long-term cocaine use is associated with severe bowel decay, the risk of heart disease, and the loss of the sense of smell.

Cocaine Addiction

There are some who believe that a cocaine addiction can occur after just one use of this drug. It produces a powerful high that doesn't last very long. Cocaine addiction has been on the decline.

Salem, Oregon is certainly not immune from addiction. In fact, statistics tell us that:

  • There are about 6,607 people who use marijuana living in Salem.
  • There are about 2,893 people abusing prescription drugs in this part of Oregon.
  • More than 1,000 people in Salem, Oregon are addicted to cocaine.
  • Close to 500 people in Salem use hallucinogenic drugs.
  • 61 heroin addicts currently live in Salem, Oregon.

Help During an Overdose

If you or someone you know has developed a serious substance addiction, the risk of an overdose is significantly higher than the rest of the population. And unfortunately, drug overdoses are now more common than they’ve ever been.

According to the National Institutes on Drug Abuse, nearly 90 thousand people died from a drug overdose in 2017. One of the biggest reasons is the rise of synthetic opioids like fentanyl in a variety of illicit substances. But even still, ODs involving meth, heroin, and cocaine are all increasing year over year as well.

In fact, the problem has gotten so out of control that drug overdoses are now the number one killer of Americans under the age of 50 – more than firearms, automotive accidents, and even certain cancers.

Today more than ever, being able to spot and help treat an overdose is critical. Because today more than ever, someone you love may be at risk.  

The most important part of treating an overdose is contacting emergency services by calling 911. Do not wait. Do not pretend that they’ll snap out of it. And do not worry about legal ramifications. Hesitating to get help – even for just a few minutes – can and often does end up costing lives.

That being said, if you do find someone who is overdosing, be sure to place them in the “recovery position” if you have to leave their side. This includes if you leave for even a minute to, say, call 911. The recovery position can help prevent deadly complications (vomiting, choking, etc.) that can end up taking the life of the victim in no time.

The emergency services workers at 911 will likely send an ambulance to your location. They may also ask you questions like…

What kind of drug did they take?

Did they have a prescription for it?

What is their current condition?

When did they last take it?

What are their height, weight, and age?

You may also be asked to perform CPR until the ambulance arrives.

When help does arrive, they may administer certain medications that are specifically used to reverse overdoses such as naloxone. They’ll also likely begin performing other life-saving measures on the way to the hospital.

In the end, your main responsibility as a friend, family member, or even just a citizen is to get the victim the help they need as quickly as possible. And doing so just may be the difference between life and death.

Symptoms of an Overdose to Watch Out For

Not all overdoses look the same. And the more you know about the common signs of each, the more quickly you’ll be able to identify them and contact emergency services.

Below are some of the most common symptoms of an overdose for the most widely abused drugs in Salem and around the country.

Prescription OpioidsPrescription opioid overdose can result in symptoms like:

  • Small, constricted “pinpoint pupils”
  • Falling asleep or loss of consciousness
  • Slow, shallow breathing
  • Choking or gurgling sounds
  • Limp body
  • Pale, blue, or cold skin

Heroin – In most cases, symptoms of a heroin overdose include:

AIRWAYS AND LUNGS 

  • No breathing
  • Shallow breathing
  • Slow and difficult breathing

EYES, EARS, NOSE, AND THROAT 

  • Dry mouth
  • Extremely small pupils, sometimes as small as the head of a pin (pinpoint pupils)
  • Discolored tongue

HEART AND BLOOD 

  • Low blood pressure
  • Weak pulse

SKIN 

  • Bluish-colored nails and lips

STOMACH AND INTESTINES

  • Constipation
  • Spasms of the stomach and intestines

NERVOUS SYSTEM 

  • Coma
  • Delirium
  • Disorientation
  • Drowsiness
  • Uncontrolled muscle movements

Alcohol – Some signs of alcohol poisoning to watch out for include:

  • Confusion
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Slow breathing (less than eight breaths a minute)
  • Irregular breathing (a gap of more than 10 seconds between breaths)
  • Blue-tinged skin or pale skin
  • Low body temperature (hypothermia)
  • Passing out (unconsciousness) and can't be awakened

Benzodiazepines – Some signs of an overdose on benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, etc.) include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Weakness
  • Slurred speech
  • Lack of coordination
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Coma

CocaineOverdosing on cocaine can cause a number of symptoms, including:

  • Seizures
  • Loss of awareness of surroundings
  • Loss of urine control
  • High body temperature, severe sweating
  • High blood pressure, very fast heart rate or irregular heart rhythm
  • Bluish color of the skin
  • Fast or difficulty breathing
  • Death

Crystal Meth – An overdose on crystal meth may cause the following symptoms:

  • Agitation
  • Chest pain
  • Coma or unresponsiveness (in extreme cases)
  • Heart attack
  • Irregular or stopped heartbeat
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Very high body temperature
  • Kidney damage and possibly kidney failure
  • Paranoia
  • Seizures
  • Severe stomach pain
  • Stroke

12-Step Support Groups

When most people think of addiction support groups, they imagine 12-step meetings. These groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Al-Anon, all stem from the same core principles of recovery known as the 12 steps.

Meetings typically follow the group talk format where members will share their own personal experiences with addiction and how the 12 steps have helped them maintain their sobriety. The social connection that these sessions provide can have tremendous healing power on their own. But on top of that, members also learn more about their own relationship with addictive substances in the process.

Plus, 12-step groups are even endorsed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. They’re even one of just 8 recommended behavioral therapies for maintaining sobriety.

And that’s because while the 12 steps certainly aren’t a guarantee for kicking an addiction, they’re actually backed up by hard science.

Best of all, these groups are widely available, free to attend, and provide full anonymity – one of the best ways to overcome the unfortunate stigmas surrounding addiction.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)

Alcoholics Anonymous (or AA) is without a doubt the most well-known 12-step program. In fact, it may even be the most well-known support group in general.

And that shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise either, given how many people this program has helped. Since its founding in 1935, its worldwide membership has grown to nearly 2.1 million people around the world. Plus, it boasts over 120 thousand different weekly meetings too.

When it comes to support for recovery from alcoholism, AA can be one of the best sources of healing out there.

Within Salem, Oregon itself, there is an enormous number of AA meetings to choose from on any day of the week.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA)

The second most well-known 12-step group, Narcotics Anonymous or NA aims at tackling addictions of any kind. That means people suffering from abuse problems with heroin, cocaine, benzos, meth, and even alcohol itself are all welcome to attend.

And like Alcoholics Anonymous, NA groups are open to all, completely free, and are entirely anonymous.

Added to that, there are plenty of groups to choose from. In fact, NA members hold nearly 67 thousand different weekly meetings in 139 countries around the world.

Like AA, there are a lot of different Narcotics Anonymous meetings to choose from within Salem, Oregon.

Al-Anon/Alateen for Family & Friends

Addicts aren’t the only ones hurt by a substance abuse problem. And sadly, many friends and family members don’t know what to do about their addicted loved one or who to turn to for help and support.

That’s where Al-Anon groups come in. These 12-step support groups are designed to deal specifically with the problems facing friends and family members of addicts – from how to spot the signs of addiction and health concerns to where to find professional help and how to take care of themselves.

Teens and young people in particular have Alateen, an Al-Anon subgroup that focuses on youths who have been negatively impacted by a loved one’s drinking.

And like other 12-step groups, there are a number of Al-Anon and Alateen meetings nearby.

Given the size of Salem, it isn’t a wonder that there are so many different Al-Anon meetings within the city to choose from.

Other Support Groups for Addiction

While 12-step groups have provided healing to thousands upon thousands of substance abusers and addicts around the world, they’re not right for everyone.

Many people believe that the “spirituality” these groups tend to include in the recovery process doesn’t have a place in their lives. Others don’t see the value in the 12-step model as a whole. And no matter what the reason is, the takeaway is that there are in fact 12-step alternatives out there.

Three of the most popular are SMART Recovery, Secular Organizations for Sobriety, and Moderation Management.

With a strong foundation in science, SMART Recovery is one of the most trusted 12-step alternatives today – and it’s only getting more popular each year. Rather than requiring members to proclaim powerlessness in the face of addiction, SMART Recovery is focused on self-empowerment instead.

Plus, meetings are led by a certified instructor rather than members themselves. Groups tend to follow a similar format involving talk therapy, but the information only comes from a verified source. And that can mean the world of difference for some meetings.

You can find more about SMART Recovery meetings nearby using their online meeting directory.

Also called S.O.S., Secular Organizations for Sobriety tackle the “spiritual” aspect of 12-step groups. They believe that recovery doesn’t have to be linked to any sort of metaphysical power or system of faith. And given that they’ve been helping addicts recover from drug and alcohol abuse for over 30 years, it’s one of the most well-trusted 12-step alternatives today.

You can find more about nearby Secular Organizations for Sobriety meetings using their meeting finder.

Rather than the abstinence-based approach to recovery, Moderation Management takes a different route. Instead, it posits that many problem drinkers (not necessarily full-blown alcoholics) can prevent falling into the spiral of addiction by simply controlling their drinking rather than abolishing it altogether.

This approach may not be right for everyone. And granted, for people with severe drinking problems, it can end up being quite problematic in some cases. However, the techniques that this program teaches can be a powerful way of building self-control and preventing the development of alcoholism down the line.

You can find out more about Moderation Management meetings taking place nearby using their online meeting directory.

Professional Addiction Treatment: The Key to Long-Term Sobriety

While support groups can be incredibly helpful when it comes to preventing relapse, the overwhelming majority of people looking to kick their addiction permanently will have to use a professional treatment program.

However, not all programs are created equally. And in many cases, finding the right one for you can be one of the biggest factors in your long-term recovery. That’s why it’s so important to understand both the benefits of a professional program as well as what kinds of programs are available.

The more you understand about professional treatment, the easier it will be to choose a facility that works for you.

Professional treatment programs offer a host of benefits compared to trying to kick an addiction on your own. The most important one is by far a significantly higher rate of recovery with a professional program. But there are many more as well. These include:

  • Having 24/7 nursing care in case of an emergency or deadly complication
  • Taking some time away from the stress of your everyday life to focus on your recovery
  • Having the time to learn more about your addiction
  • Support groups that will help you understand how others are working through recovery
  • Learning alternate coping skills to help you avoid relapsing
  • Guidance for dealing with long-term side effects like depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders

Types of Treatment Programs

Recovery treatment is typically broken down into two unique phases: detoxification and rehabilitation.

While detox handles the physical side of addiction, helping push patients through the uncomfortable withdrawals of quitting, rehab tackles the mental side of things and addresses compulsive behaviors.

It’s worth mentioning that both are equally important when it comes to long-term recovery.

Movies make detox look like a scene from a horror novel, featuring addicts in endless agony. It's no wonder, then, that many Salem addicts are terrified of detox. Detox is not what the movies portray, though. Instead, it is the simple process through which drugs and alcohol leave your system.

You see, over the course of addiction, the body grows accustomed to an addictive substance. And in fact, most addicts will find that they can’t even function normally without it. But when that substance is removed, it can take some serious adjustments.

This process comes as a shock to your body when it grows dependent on alcohol or drugs, and can give rise to symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, muscle aches, general pain, shaking, nightmares, appetite disturbances, and difficulty sleeping. Some addicts experience more severe symptoms, but detox in Salem does not have to be terrible and is certainly not the nightmare portrayed on the big screen.

How Long Does Detox Last?

If you're scared of detox, it's no wonder that you're wondering how long it lasts. Remember, detox is necessary to get clean, and you only have to do it once. Even so, it's a short process, usually lasting about a week. In some cases, you may need only a few days. Even if you have an addiction that requires a longer stay in detox, though, you won't have to be there any longer than about two weeks.

What Should I Bring to Detox?

Detox is tough work. You'll be busy focusing on your sobriety, not relaxing or wasting time being bored. Take only the bare necessities, such as toiletries, clothing, medications and sentimental items. Ask your rehab intake coordinator if you need help determining what to bring or for how many days you should pack, but pack at least enough for a week's worth of detox. Rehabs usually forbid potentially addictive substances, including mouthwash that contains alcohol and some over-the-counter drugs. Don't take anything that is potentially dangerous, such as weapons. If you need more help deciding what to take, be sure to talk to your intake coordinator, who can give you more insight.

Rehab facilities, just like the addicts to whom they cater, are each a little different. Some are active, sports-oriented places where you'll get lots of time in the great outdoors. Others focus on holistic wellness and spiritual healing, while still others focus on the simple basics of sober living. There's no single facility that will work for everyone. Instead, learn as much as you can about your options, then choose a facility where you feel safe and welcomed, and where your values are respected. Most good rehab facilities offer, at minimum, the following services:

  • Support groups, 12-step programs in Salem, group therapy, and the support of addicts who have been there.
  • Help as you go through detox, including medication management and doctor supervision. You'll also get assistance in managing any health conditions you have, including mental health conditions.
  • Counseling designed to help you understand your risk factors for relapse, why you abuse drugs or alcohol, and what you can do to combat future temptation.
  • Education, including pamphlets, seminars, and family classes, about addiction's status as a disease.
  • Advice on achieving long and short-term goals, including assistance designing and following a long-term sobriety plan.
  • Activities, such as sports or art, to keep your mind off of your desire to use drugs or alcohol.

Types of Rehab Programs

In general, there are three main types of rehabilitation programs to choose from: inpatient rehabs, outpatient rehabs, and intensive outpatient programs (IOPs)

  • Inpatient Rehab (~30 days) – An inpatient program (also known as a residential program) requires patients to stay on campus grounds at all times. Eating, sleeping, and treatment sessions all occur at a central location. And for many, leaving the campus grounds is prohibited. This allows for a more intensive level of care and a higher rate of success. However, many do not allow patients to go to work or school, making it quite disruptive for some.
  • Outpatient Rehab (~3 months) – This option is a bit more flexible than inpatient since treatment sessions take place in the evenings for just an hour or so. They also only occur several times a week. However, the tradeoff for this flexibility is a less intensive level of care. As a result, it may not be right for all recovering addicts.
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (~3 months) – An IOP offers the flexibility of outpatient with a level of care closer to an inpatient program. Sessions still take place in the evenings but usually last longer and occur more frequently. It’s a great option for people who need more care but can’t afford to commit to an inpatient program.

Should You Travel for Treatment?

Within Salem itself, there are a number of professional treatment programs to choose from, including:

  • About 15 detox centers
  • Over 20 different rehab programs
  • 11 sober living homes

That being said, that doesn’t mean that the best choice for treatment isn’t outside of Salem. And in fact, making the choice to travel outside of Oregon’s capital city may actually be the best recovery decision you’ve ever made.

There are a number of benefits to leaving Salem for treatment. First off (and most importantly), it opens up the door to a higher level of quality treatment. With more facilities to choose from, you’ll have access to a range of amenities, services, and expertise that simply might not exist in local treatment programs.

Additionally, there are a variety of other benefits, including:

  • Avoiding old triggers like people, places, and events that can make it harder to quit.
  • You have time to focus on yourself, which can be key for maintaining sobriety.
  • It can help solidify your commitment to treatment.
  • It can make it harder to relapse.

Our Closest Facility

Unfortunately, many people are under the false assumption that treatment has to cost an arm and a leg. In fact, nearly one-third of all addicts who knew they needed help but didn't get it cited cost as a leading factor.

But the truth is, treatment has actually never been more affordable than it is today. This is due to sweeping changes in federal legislation, most notably the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA). Essentially, these two new laws have forced nearly all insurance providers to help cover addiction treatment in one way or another.

And depending on the provider, some people may have their treatment costs covered entirely by their insurance company.

However, it’s important that before you choose a particular program, you first verify your insurance coverage to avoid any surprises.  

On top of these changes to health insurance, many treatment facilities also offer a range of financial support options to make treatment far more affordable. These may include everything from sliding scale payments and financing options to payment plans and even grants or scholarships. It depends on the program.

To find out more, be sure to reach out to a program personally before deciding against it. You just may be surprised at how affordable it can be.

And above all else, choosing treatment is far more affordable compared to the costs of maintaining a substance abuse problem.
