Flakka is a relatively new drug that also called alphaPVP by its medical name. There are various combinations of drugs that constitute the drug’s makeup and every batch may be different. It is similar to bath salts, another designer drug, and is dangerous due to the effects it has on people when they are high on it. Flakka rehab has become important due to the cheap availability of the drug and the addictions that follow.
Because it is a relatively new version of drug, there is not enough research to know just what the long-term effects of repeated use of the substance are. However, the increase in hospital visits related to flakka abuse is an alarming trend. Even though it was banned in 2014 after numerous drug related incidents of people behaving in a chaotic and crazy way, it has remained on the streets at a very low cost.
A flakka rehab program will look at the possible causes of an addiction forming in a person who abuses this drug in order to use a treatment program that can help the patient to regain control over the trigger situations that lead to abuse of flakka. Additionally, some people may suffer from co-occurring disorders where another mental illness such as anxiety disorder causes them to abuse drugs. With repeated use, conditions such as anxiety disorders can be made worse.
Treatment programs used in rehab centers are focused around the patient’s mental well-being. Methods such as cognitive-behavioral therapy can be used to discover unruly thoughts and irrational behavior that causes drug abuse and treat them by giving alternative methods of coping. It is often done in an individual counseling setting where a patient can feel safe and talk about difficult emotions.
Motivational interviewing is another popular method of therapy that allows a patient to discuss the topics and emotions that they are ready to discuss bringing about internal motivation for change. Furthermore, Motivations Incentives is often made use of due to its success in treating an addiction. It uses rewards such as facility privileges to motivate positive behavior such as passing a flakka drug test.
Programs such as the 12-step, art therapy and SMART therapy are structured programs that guide a patient through the recovery process. A patient can learn new ways to express their emotions that would normally cause them to abuse flakka.
When dealing with severe addictions to harmful drugs such as flakka that can devastate a person’s life on several levels, an inpatient program is the best option. When a patient is able to stay at the facility and be kept away from drugs while being constantly monitored, the effectiveness of a treatment can be maximized. Rehab centers often provide around-the-clock support to help a patient with the cravings and emotional stress that is likely to occurring during the recovery process. The lack of negative influences and the support that can be received in an inpatient treatment program helps a person to have the best chance at a full recovery.
Outpatient rehab programs refer to treatment that is received by visiting the rehab facility. Detox can be done to some extent through outpatient programs although not all of the medication that is usually prescribed can be used. An outpatient program can be more cost-effective and fit with a person’s life better; responsibilities such as being a caretaker and the provider for a household can make it hard for a person to go into a residential program.
Relapse prevention is seen as a critical part of addiction treatment; 40 to 60 percent of people who do not have effective ways of dealing with drug relapse find themselves abusing drugs again. Through the treatment process, a patient can learn the skills needed to avoid and deal with high-risk situations.
