Addictions We Treat

Understanding Drug & Alcohol Addiction

There are Millions of Americans Who Suffer from Substance Use

Across America, millions of people struggle with symptoms and challenges related to addiction (also referred to as substance use disorders). Data provided by the Substance Use and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), approximately twenty-one million people over the age of twelve struggle with at least one addiction. While this number is large and troubling, perhaps the more concerning data concerns those who may never receive treatment. It is estimated that as few as ten percent of all those who struggle with addiction will ever seek or receive essential treatment to help overcome their addiction and begin a life of sobriety. It is vital to remember that despite previous beliefs, addiction is not a choice, it is a valid health condition that requires treatment.

Although the decision to drink or experiment with substances may, at first, be voluntary, the effects substance use has on the body and brain eventually make the ability to stop using without help and guidance difficult, if not impossible. Addiction is a disease that knows no bounds. It does not discriminate on the basis of age, ethnicity, social status, economic stability, or religious affiliation. It touches the lives of addicts, their families, friends, and loved ones in ways that are immeasurable.

Here at Lionheart Recovery Center, we have created a safe space where you can find your own, personal path to sustainable recovery from drug & alcohol addiction.

How to Know If Someone is Abusing Drugs

Signs and Symptoms of
Drug & Alcohol Use

The signs and symptoms of addiction look different from person to person. One can become addicted to many different substances, including marijuana, stimulants, sedatives, tobacco, alcohol, opioid painkillers, and various other substances. Each separate substance will itself contribute to variations in how addiction “looks” in your friend or loved one. When someone first starts using, the way the brain releases chemicals to the body changes. One of the most heavily impacted chemicals is dopamine. Dopamine is a naturally occurring chemical in the body responsible for feelings of happiness and euphoria. Eventually, with ongoing use, someone who uses regularly will find they cannot achieve similar levels of joy or pleasure without using or drinking. Also, they eventually begin to develop tolerance to their chosen substances. This means the number of drugs or alcohol required to attain effects similar to those experienced when they first started using increases. Increased tolerance is a sign of addiction and can sometimes be an early warning sign of a level of use that could lead to overdose. 

While each substance does have unique effects, several common effects are seen in many cases. Some of the most common, notable signs or symptoms of addiction include changes to physical appearance, appetite changes, lack of energy, new or worsening financial or legal difficulties, weight changes (typically weight loss), defensiveness when asked about drug or alcohol use, alterations in behavior and new or worsening troubles at home, work or school. In addition to the above, someone who struggles with a negative relationship with alcohol may also experience a significant lack of control over how much they drink, increased isolation (preferring to drink alone), mood swings, emotional disturbances, and continuing to drink (or seek alcohol) regardless of ongoing adverse effects related to drinking. 

"Through my time here I have dropped the cane with all the help of the employees, diet, positive groups all day, now I am off the cane, doing yoga poses, and I couldn’t even walk when I came here. Doctors told me I would never walk without a cane again. I’m so grateful for the all around treatment that Lionheart provides.”

How to Find the Best Las Vegas Treatment Center

How Can Quality Addiction Treatment in Las Vegas Help?

Acknowledging a struggle with addiction is only the first step on your road to recovery. However, it is only after doing so that you can fully engage in a therapeutic treatment program like Lionheart Recovery in Las Vegas. The best treatment programs are those that are comprehensive (meaning they begin with detox and then provide support and guidance for clients through treatment and aftercare) and unique to the individual seeking treatment. When you enter an addiction treatment program, detox is often the first step. Our drug & alcohol detox in Las Vegas helps with the essential process of cleansing the body of any substance or substances that may remain. 

Without effective detox, addicts seeking sobriety are often unable to fully immerse themselves in a treatment program as they will still face challenges such as cravings and withdrawal symptoms. It is also important to remember that detoxing from certain substances (such as alcohol or opioids) can be dangerous and often leads to relapse. Our detox program at Lionheart Recovery will ensure you are supported throughout detox while your body learns to function without substances. For many, the detox process, whether from drugs or alcohol, can be scary, unpleasant, and sometimes dangerous, which is why a supervised detox program is so vital to your success in treatment. 

Once detox is complete, you can transition into a comprehensive, evidence-based treatment program here in our Las Vegas addiction treatment center. Our boutique drug treatment program in Las Vegas, located in the Tomiyasu area, provides individualized treatment plans that address your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs during treatment. Our inpatient programs offer evidence-based therapies and alternative therapies as part of a comprehensive, truly personalized addiction treatment plan. You will be able to access your personalized treatment plan upon admission. To learn more about what to expect at Lionheart Recovery Center click here.
