Alcohol and Drug Dependency
"Where addiction stops and new life begins."
Dr. Ridlovski provides Medication Assisted Detox & treatment for all substance dependence & addiction:
Benzodiazepines: Xanax, Valium, Ativan, Klonopin, etc...
Alcohol and Drug Dependency is when an individual has the continual desire to continue drinking or taking a drug in order to feel good or avoid feeling bad. One may be physically or psychologically dependent on alcohol or drugs.
Physical dependence results from heavy and repeated use of drugs. Because these drugs are used continually, the body's chemistry changes in a way that if and when the person does not have a repeated dose, they will suffer physical withdrawal symptoms. Such symptoms may include shaking, sweating, racing heart, nausea, muscle tension, difficulty breathing, etc...Therefore the individual must keep taking the drug repeatedly in order to not feel ill.
Psychological dependence is when an individual uses the drug and the experience it provides them as a way of dealing with everyday issues, or as a way of feeling "better" or "OK". They feel as if without the use of the drug, they could not cope with things. Some symptoms of emotional withdrawal include anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, poor concentration, depression, social isolation, etc...
Treatment for drug and alcohol abuse always begins with the individual recognizing the problem.
Once the problem is recognized, treatment options may be discussed to choose which one works best for each individual.
