Tens of millions of Americans deal with and struggle with a substance abuse problem, addiction, or alcoholism every year. Unfortunately, less than half of all people who meet the criteria for a substance misuse disorder receive treatment. Changes to medical insurance laws require medical insurance companies to cover mental health and substance abuse treatment. They must do so in the same manner that they would cover medical conditions. These changes have not only lowered the cost of substance abuse treatment but also made treatment more accessible.
How Addiction Works
Drugs and alcohol are both physically and psychologically addictive. This means that your body and brain can become dependent on drugs and alcohol in order to function properly. You may have to use drugs and alcohol to feel normal once you become physically or psychologically dependent on your substance of choice.
Whenever you use drugs or alcohol, your brain releases an excessive amount of pleasurable neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are chemicals produced and released by your brain that create positive emotions, such as happiness. Drugs and alcohol cause significant neurotransmitter imbalances by changing your brain’s pleasure and reward center.
When your brain associates something, such as drugs or alcohol, with pleasure, it rewards that activity by releasing a rush of neurotransmitters. Over time, your brain can become dependent on drugs and alcohol in order to release neurotransmitters. Additionally, your brain causes you to crave your substance of choice whenever you are exposed to triggers. Triggers are people, places, or things your brain associates with your substance of choice.
Addiction can also impact your cognition, logical reasoning, and decision-making centers, which increases your chances of engaging in dangerous or illegal behavior.

Many times, addiction treatment programs offer medically supervised detox services which can greatly reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms you experience when you stop using. Our Texas drug detox services utilize medications, therapy, and holistic remedies to alleviate your withdrawal symptoms and make the detox process more comfortable.
Once you complete detox, outpatient and residential treatment programs use psycho-education to help you learn more about addiction and recovery. An increased understanding of addiction and things such as cravings and triggers help better prepare you for navigating life without the use of drugs and alcohol. Both inpatient and outpatient programs can connect you with community-based supports and aftercare programs.
