Addiction psychiatry aims to treat people with addiction topics along with co-occurring psychiatric disorders, otherwise known as patients with identification. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency estimates that over 23 million Americans (age 12 and older) are addicted to alcohol and other drugs. The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimated the market for addiction cure at about $35 billion for 2014.Since 2006, private equity firms have invested more than $2.2 billion in substance abuse treatment companies.

10 Most Common Addictions:

It also increases heart rate, can damage the lungs, and may increase the danger of psychosis in vulnerable people. The legalization of marijuana in some states has made the drug’s use more socially acceptable.

Heroin’s stark withdrawal symptoms make beating a heroin addiction a difficult task. Treating heroin addiction typically requires a combination of therapy and medications to help manage symptoms of withdrawal and thirsts.

Types of Addiction Treatment and Costs:

  • Detox

Patient detox ranges from $1,000 to $1,500 in total. Most inpatient rehabs contain detox in the cost of a program. The exact cost of detox depends on whether it’s part of an inpatient program and the type of drug addiction being preserved. Substances with dangerous detox side effects require more careful observing, making the price higher.

  • Inpatient Rehab

Some inpatient rehabs may cost around $6,000 for a 30-day program. Well-known centres frequently rate up to $20,000 for a 30-day program. For those requiring 60- or 90-day programs, the total usual of costs could range anywhere from $12,000 to $60,000.

  • Outpatient Rehab

It’s harder to estimate the price of illegal drug addiction, but it can be much higher. Some former heroin users have described spending tens of thousands of dollars on their addiction.

Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medications:

  • Opioids

These are usually given for pain relief. Commonly prescribed opioids include hydrocodone oxycodone, morphine, fentanyl, and codeine. In the United States, more individuals now die from opioid sedative overdoses than from heroin and cocaine combined.

  • Stimulants

Methylphenidate and amphetamines are drugs commonly given for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

  • Depressants

These are usually given to help sleep or to reduce anxiety. As measured by national surveys, drugs are often categorized as sedatives or tranquilizers. Sedatives primarily include barbiturates but also include sleep medications such as Ambien and Lunesta. Anaesthetics primarily contain benzodiazepines such as Valium and Xanax, but also include muscle relaxants and other anti-anxiety medicines.

  • “Syrup,” “Purple Drank,” “Sizzurp,” or “Lean”

Describes beverage mixed with prescription-strength cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine these cough syrups are available by medicine only. Consumers may also flavour the mixture with hard sweeties. Drinking this combination has become increasingly popular among some personalities and youth in several areas of the country. Codeine is an opioid that can create easing and joy when consumed in sufficient quantities.

New Advances in Addiction Medicine:

The exploitations of legal and illegal drugs remain one of the major medical problems in the world today. Cannabis remains by far the most widely used drug, monitored by amphetamine-type stimulants, opiate and cocaine users. Alcohol taking advantage and alcoholism annoys nearly 10% of the general population both in the United States (McGinnis and Foege, 1993) and in Europe (Hupkens et al., 1993).

Drug and alcohol abuse have many medical imports. Health effects may range between cardiomyopathies, immune impairment, endocrine disorders, metabolic and nutritional disorders, liver and gastrointestinal diseases, cancer disease, neuropsychiatric complications to name a few, so all kinds of surgeons could be involved in the management of these patients. Medical methods continue to develop with new findings in pharmacology, molecular genetics, and immunology.

Certainly, in the last three decades, our increased information about the molecular, biological and social aspects of addiction has enabled us to improve the management and existence of these patients. For example, the discovery of the neurobiological basis of addiction and of different neural paths involved in drug and alcohol abuse led to recognize new pharmacological approaches to treatment that can be matching with psychosocial treatments. Furthermore, there are new advances in pharmacogenetics that can bring advancing to era of personalized medicine to the addictions field. New scenes in vaccine research also promise to improve both the prevention and treatment of addictive disorders. All this scientific progress was, and shall continue to be, possible due to the rapid growth of research in the field.

Borderlines in Addictive Disorders will be at the cutting-edge of publishing papers that will shape our understanding and the treatment of addictive diseases now and in the future. The scope of the journal is very broad and ranges from the laboratory bench to society.
