What happens if they are using more than one drug?
This is common with any type of drug addiction. An addict will often have their drug of choice but will abuse other drugs when they cannot get their drug of choice. The danger of abusing more than one type of synthetic drug is the risk of overdose and other health complications. It is impossible to know what synthetic drugs are mixed with. The same problem happens with illicit drugs being laced with synthetic drugs. If they are using more than one drug, the intervention happens the same way, and the family is prepared for what to expect, based on what we know they are using. Each drug creates different personality changes and reactions. It is important to do the intervention when they are not under the influence or going through withdrawals. This is often a tight window, which is why the intervention happens quickly.
The first day is spent with the family, but even before we arrive there is a considerable amount of time spent on the phone. If the addiction does involve synthetic drugs, it is important we gather as much information as you can recall and provide us. This will ensure the intervention is successful and we are prepared for everything that may happen. The dangers with synthetic drugs are real, especially when adolescents or youth are using drugs such as synthetic marijuana. Our intervention team has helped countess adolescents and their families.
Choosing Drug Rehab for Synthetic Drug Addiction
The right treatment is important, and based on what synthetic drugs you know they are using, we can ensure they get to the right treatment program. It is important to have the right drug rehab center available prior to intervention, and Newman Interventions can help you find one if you have not already. Synthetic drug problems do become worse and the risk of overdose increases with the more synthetic drugs they are using. Professional intervention is the best way to help them get the treatment they need.
